OK, so 'I' is presence.Yes I am the presence and presence on examination doesn't have a location
So when you say 'I am going to the shops', it is presence that will do it. Yes?
How is it known that 'I' is presence, and what knows this?
You seemed to have fallen into the realms of thinking and analysis in your last reply, so some of this might be hard going.It is in fact everywhere so has to be inside and outside the body and permeating everything.
What experience do you have of 'presence' inside a body?
How is 'presence permeating everything' experienced?
Ok, so 'I' is the owner of a body. And the body experiences feelings and sensations, yes?We have a body in order to experience human emotions/feelings/sensations, I believe.
Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by 'grace'.This has been seen very clearly. Nothing can stop the "I' thought from coming back except probably, ....grace?
If there is something that controls thoughts, and can prevent them from coming back what is it, and how is it known?
Well let's look into this. There might be considered an 'I' that exists in thought, and there might be a real 'I'.That the "I' thought is just another thought?
Which, in your experience right now is the 'real' 'I' - Describe it, and how it is known.
That may or may not be so, but what has this to do with your current experience here and now?The "I" thought is just years of conditioning of a false identity
What is there here and now other than the current thought?
Right at the start of the discussion I mentioned about not having expectations or preconceptions. What's this?At the moment I'm not experiencing any trickiness but am aware that it's not just going to disappear completely even if the illusion of self has been seen through.
