Hello Mark,

a question from another guide:

You mentioned feeling confused.

What is it that is confused? What is the confusion about?

The mind was confused trying to put the seen into words.

Thanks Tatyana,
The mind was confused trying to put the seen into words.


Let's get to grips with the "mind" issue.


We can only report on what is directly observed. Can you observe an entity called mind that tries to do things?


To see this clearly let's look at WHEN is anything happening?


Can you experience anything that isn't the current moment?


In the current moment, can you be aware of more than one thought at a time?

Look closely at the current moment -- can you observe something separate from the current thougth that is trying to do something with that thought?

Can you find "mind" separate from thought?

thanks!

No, just thoughts which were called "mind", labeled "confused".

To see this clearly let's look at WHEN is anything happening?

Whatever is happening, it's all experienced now. Everything else is a story either about past or future.

Can you experience anything that isn't the current moment?

No.
In the current moment, can you be aware of more than one thought at a time?

No, there is only a single thought at a time.

Look closely at the current moment -- can you observe something separate from the current thought that is trying to do something with that thought?

No, thoughts are just thoughts.

Can you find "mind" separate from thought?

No, "mind" is also a thought.

Thank you!

OK Tatyana, thank you.

So is there any remaining confusion?

Hello Mark,

No, no confusion is left. Just pure relief how everything is just imagination at play. Such freedom, such lightness.

Love!
