Where is it now? This I, can you describe where you find it. Can you touch it with a finger?
(Assuming in this instance, that I is not the label we give to our body/mind entity for the sake of communication), then I is nowhere to be seen or found. Nor can you touch it.
Is Brigitte in the room right now?
Yes, I would say she is in the room right now and it is a name label for the body/mind. It is the label used to point to the character of the body/mind also.
Is batman in the room right now?
No, he is a fictional character and doesn’t exist.
How do you know in both instances?
I know through direct experience in the first instance and I didn’t need direct experience to see that batman isn’t there because I already know he doesn’t exist.
Is I in the body, outside the body, does it own the body or is it the name of this body? Like a tag, useful in communication.
I is neither in or outside the body, nor does it own the body, because it is nowhere to be found. However, it is very useful in communication.
Is awareness I? Or I arise in awareness?
Ilona, this is a hard one - I am really confused about this. I believe thoughts arise in awareness, actions happen in awareness, in fact, everything of this world happens in awareness. Awareness as I understand it, is the space/background in which everything happens. I do not know whether awareness is I? I arises in mind, as a thought, which happens in awareness yet it is still an illusion.
Examine this closely and take your time. When you close your eyes, can you find this I, me anywhere? In which form or shape?
No, I cannot find this I anywhere, in any shape or form.
