'I'I want to be pushed, I want someone else to do the work for me. I want to get this over with so I can do other things.
I feel like smiling at all this, its silly.
Awareness. No wonder there was no big bang, its just recognition of what is always there.ok, can you leave the expectations and just look into this what is right now.
Should be something different than it is? What?
Sensible. Joyful as well, this seems to have run through most of today and yesterday.How does it feel to see this?
I do, lets see what happens.Do you feel ready now for a few final, "confirmation" questions?
Have you seen the Jim Carrey movie, The Mask?What is illusion of self?
It requires some kind of input, attention+attachment. Theres a thought, attention settles on it and it is believed, often without notice. When 'self' thoughts arise, they seem to be the basis of perception, but its really a mask, in that it confines perception. Its not a true limiting of attention, more a temporary stickiness.How it manifests?
Because the zoom function is up too high. Attention obsesses over these thoughts and emotions, probably due to not being taught differently. It is really amazing that an emotion is felt, that a thought can become so 'sticky' that this perception seems to be an 'I' thing.Why it is not seen usually as such?
I don't know. Really its right there. It seems like a step back is needed, or the glue between attention and object ('self' thoughts and emotions) needs to dissolve a bit. When its seen though, even if the glue isn't all the way gone, its like a constant reminder, 'I am not this thought, emotion, etc. But I am.'What does it take to see it?
Its a realisation of the obvious. Can you perceive your thoughts? Emotions? Sensations? Then clearly these things are not the root of perception.Could you describe it to someone who never heard about it, but shows interest?
There was just a recognition. A sense of 'this feels right'.Was there something specific that made you definitely SEE?
Yes and liked it :)Have you seen the Jim Carrey movie, The Mask?
