Thank you for the extra time to do the exercise! It was a fun activity but I couldn’t focus a few times.
There was no connection except the image I saw in the mirror.Is there any connection between the felt sensations and the image in the mirror?
Or just thoughts (and/or mental images) suggest that there is?
No connection. Only thing I found was a visual image of movement of hand and sensation of movement.(3) While still paying attention to the sensations move one hand and observe the movement from the mirror.
Is there any connection between the felt sensations (labelled ‘hand’) and image of movement in the mirror?
No. Only thought says the sensation of hand is coming from something called hand. In direct experience, there is only an image or visual of a ‘hand’ and sensation.Is there any connection between the felt sensations (labelled ‘hand’) and the image ‘of movement’? Or only thoughts suggest it?
No, the image doesn’t have ‘body’ written on it, nor does it say ‘your body’. There are only shapes and colors appearing.(5) Now, pay attention only to the image in the mirror.
Does the image by itself suggest in any way that is ‘you’ or ‘your body’?
Does the image itself suggest in any way that it is a ‘body’ at all?
Or are there only colours and shapes?
There is no knowledge of legs, they cannot be seen. There are thoughts and images suggesting there are legs, but by looking at the mirror alone, direct experience doesn’t show ‘legs’.(6) Where the mirror ends, some parts of the body (probably legs) cannot be seen.
Just by the image in the mirror, is there any ‘knowledge’ that there must be legs, or only thoughts and mental images suggest so?
There is no ‘body’ walking. There is sensation of movement, or more direct experience, just sensations.Is there a ‘body walking’, or are there only sensations?
The experience of walking is not ‘walking’. That’s thought labeling it ‘walking’. In reality, there are sensations and then thought saying ‘body is walking’ or ‘walking’.Is there actual experience of ‘walking’ at all?
Or just THOUGHTS ABOUT ‘walking’?
Can such a thing as ‘body’ be found OR just THOUGHTS ABOUT a ‘body’?
Can such a thing as ‘walking’ be found?
‘Walking’ is just a word pointing to sensations.
There is no ‘room’....that too is a label. Just sensations appearing without a known location. Sensations appear regardless of ‘where’ I am, and a ‘room’ is a word to point to nothing.(9) Are the sensations localized in space, like ‘going through the room’; OR is there only an image that is labelled ‘room’ and appearing sensations without any location?
