This reply is just a pure thought speculation, and has nothing to do with looking. And you didn’t answer my question at all.
Please read the questions more carefully. My questions are pointers for you where to look.
And you didn’t look there.
You just wrote about a thought speculation.
You are correct, I fell back into speculation, sorry about that. It seems so easy to fall back.
So here is the question again. Listen to the clock sound and look:
In 'hearing' can anything be found other than tick tock – AE of sound?
The only thing that is found by listening to the tick tock is the AE of sound and the experience of the thought.
If the hearer cannot be found, then how can there be a YOU who has no control over thing?
Is the supposed hearer and YOU are the same?
Isn’t the belief that YOU are the hearer?
There is no hearer to be found, only to be noticed in the content of the thought.
The "YOU" is also just a content of thought, but does not exist.
When the content of the thought is "I have control" and it is believed then there is also a belief that "I am the hearer".
I cannot find the i,you, me or hearer, they are all contents of thought. They do not exist anywhere.
“The more I look the less I see that I have any control over” – what does the word ‘I’ point to in this sentence?
WHAT is the “I”?
And WHERE is the ‘I’? – find the exact location
There is no location for any reference to "I". This is just another thought.
When i feel i have control, this is just the content of thought that was once again believed.
e]“I told myself” – what does the word ‘I’ point to this sentence?
The "I" points to another thought that arose.
So if "I" am not telling this body what to do, then who is?
I do not see "anybody" telling the body what to do. I do not even see the thought for the body to do it, it just happens. period. Some things that happen there is a thought that arose, but some things that the body is doing, there is no awareness until there is.
What is the ‘I’ that is not telling the body what to do?
There is no "I" telling or not telling the body what to do. It appears as they are just random acts that happen.
WHERE is this ‘I’ EXACTLY? – search for it
There is no "I" to be found. I continue to search for it, but there is no place where it is found, other than in the content of a thought.
What is it that is looking? Where is the ‘I’, the looker?
There is no looker.
The looking is happening by experiencing a thought with the content that there is somebody looking.
Where is the ‘I’ that has an intention to not believe the contents of thoughts?
There is no "I" to be found. The intention to not believe the contents of thoughts is just another thought.
What i cannot see is how the the thoughts are believed or not believed. They appear to just pause when there are enough of them that are not believed.
WHERE is the ‘I’ that feels like it’s the body?
This is a belief of the content of a thought.
When i look to see this question, the first thought said "you are your body", and then it quickly went away and another thought rose up saying "no your are not".
I looked again and the first thought said "you are not your body", the next thought said "your body does not exist" and then the thoughts paused and there was just a blackness, nothingness for a time.
Where is the FEELER of the body? – find it
there is no "FEELER" in the body. The feeler is also a content of the thought. Does not exist.
“I no longer feel connected to this body” – Where is this ‘I’ that could be connected or not connected to the body?
The "I" that feels connected is the content of the thought that created a story once it was believed.
Can an INHERENT HEARER be found, or it is only thought that suggests that there is a hearer AND sound?
There is only thought that suggests that there is a hearer AND sound.
The question is about whether there are 2 things present in experience: sound + the knowing of it, or these two things are not two, but one?
There is only one thing, the knowing that there is an experience of thought with the contents of "i hear the sound".
Once i believe that that there is a sound, then the thought arises of what the sound must be, for example the clock.
Also, try to locate the sensation that is seemingly being the one (the hearer) who is doing the hearing (the sense of a hearer). And investigate the sensation itself if it is really the hearer. Let me know what you find.
If i believe that there is a hearer, there is the sensation of sound. If the thought is not believed, the sound diminishes into nothingness.
