Yes, exactly, its just a experience then thought comes in to label it as sensation (or emotion lol).... Ive reflected on this. Same could be said about colors. Or sounds. Without the label thought puts on, how can it be known as a thing other than just awareness or experienced awareness?....Yes, however, without thought how is a sensation known as a sensation. Is it not simply experience which thought has labelled as ‘sensation’? Therefore Knowing knows itself as itself, no matter what is SEEMS to appear as or be labelled as?
Experience experiencing itself, being aware of itself as THAT.As above, if you ignore all those labels..what remains?
Just experience, awareness, THAT, IS.If you look at a table, and for the sake of this experiment, let’s say it is the colour brown. Now totally ignore the label ‘table’ and you are then left with the label ‘brown’. Totally ignore the label ‘brown’ and you are left with the label ‘colour’. Now ignore the label ‘colour’ and what are you left with?
No location, that would be a thought or label: "They are appearing in my head" or "In this location", etc.The thoughts appearing that are labelled as ‘others thoughts’ are simply thoughts appearing. Are ‘your’ thoughts actually happening in a head? Do thought actually have a location?
That personal I is just a thought story that comes and goes along with other thoughts...Is “I” a place where thoughts appear, or is “I” a thought that arises and subsides by itself?
Waking up from the matrix with this one lol...Just the story of a character called Z, who SEEMS to be the thinker of thought and thinks that there are others and that they are thinking things about him!
No, they are just a story, a dream, etc.Do thoughts know what they are saying?
Without thought, how is it known that what is being said is an actual language that is understood by the ‘me’ and by the other?
Without thought, its nothing lol.... today I was taking a walk, and hearing 'others' talk, I remember what you mention of you replace the voice with tweeting of birds, what would be different? the meaning I had given before as thought, now would only be sounds.... tweets lol.
Yes, thank you! Same as the example above about a table... the label table is just a thought... and not the table itself, which is color, etc... and when you add the label, you dont 'see' the table, you see the thought label.The WORD/LABEL ‘body’ actually refers to AE of thought and NOT AE of a body. A label is a thought, so a label is AE of thought.
You got me on this one, a bit of a trick question. So AE of a car would be a thought, because that points color, sounds, etc?The actual experience of the body is thought. Thought points to colour, sensation, smell, sound etc and infers that it is a body.
No! lol.... body remains at the level of thought being just a label, to give meaning to 'something', to separate reality into different objects, etc.Can an actual body be found in colour, sensation, smell, sound etc?
Thanks Kay :)
