Great!Something clicked this morning after I read your response the first time - it became clear that looking to the future (or the past, for that matter) to understand the implications of accepting that 'I' can't be found, is pure folly, because it is thought. A completely made up, baseless fabrication. I realize and appreciate that you've been saying this all along, but the truth of that is more evident now. A major crack - thank you!!!
Absolutely. Thoughts are examined. No 'I' to do it. It 'just happens' :-)Yet, in the absence of 'I' there doesn't seem to be anything to examine the thoughts, or anything to examine them with.
EVERYTHING 'just happens'. There is no control of any kind. Is this realised?
Mind wants an answer. Another thought is demanded. It never will be clear as what is being pointed to is something that cannot be thought of.But what examines, and what determines what is real now, is not clear.
Thought can only encompass objects, concepts, things, 'stuff'. What is being pointed to here is not a 'thing'.
We look for a separate 'thing' and none can be found.
It cannot be found by searching for it, as what is searching for it . . . IS IT.
Again, without thought where is the stress? Where is the demand to 'know'?
That's really beautiful, Gavith.Jumping in at the end an giving 'I' credit is actually absurd - it's like the raindrop giving itself credit for water, clouds, gravity, etc . . .
I walked along a road the other day. I looked at the branches swaying in the breeze.
Then I looked at my legs, swaying from side to side as I walked.
The realisation was that they were both the same.
The branches appeared to sway. They just 'moved'. It just 'happens' - No controller.
The legs appeared 'walking'. They just 'moved'. It just 'happens' - No controller.
'Life happens'. No controller.
♥ Yes.Without thought, there's nothing to have conflict, since reality just is, without conflict.
As you may realise, no-one to surrender, though.Without thought . . . what?
Just 'peace'. And peace 'just happening' without a controller creating or demanding it ♥
