Dear David,Dear David, You're so very Welcome & my pleasure glad it helps !!! Thank You for waiting this late for my posts ! My hours are so weird this ends up being the time for me.........
No problems for late posts etc......... I'm in no hurry....... I am aware that it is recommended to post every day, but I am very cool if that isn't always possible, it gives me longer to digest whats happening and to continue to watch whats going on. I guess at the moment I am really trying to look at what this feeling of 'being a self' is all about. Today I think I noticed that moment by moment the 'self' keeps re-inventing itself! It's almost as if it has to keep restructuring and re-crystalising.... giving the sense that it is a permanent entity. It's almost as if as soon as I turn my attention towards looking at it, that it then feels more real than if I do not think about it ?!?
One of the things that confuses me is the act of 'attention'. As soon as 'I' bring (or the mind brings) attention to a subject, that sense of attention seems to generate a feeling that there is some kind of 'solidity' and 'self-hood' behind it. Being here at the moment, typing this, it seems that there is motivation towards a goal of communicating my thoughts to you. In trying to clarify my thoughts and communicate them to you, the mind seems to become more focused and that sharpness of focus has a greater 'self' feeling.... does that make any sense?
When I question what I have just said though, and really look, I can see it as being a bit like a soccer match. There are a number of different entities that come together for a match and during the lead up, duration (and come down) of that match,the different entities join forces to act like a whole unit to deal with the need to win and survive. Any pain caused to an individual on the same side, is felt like a pain or discomfort to the whole team as if the 'team' is an entity in itself. Maybe my feeling of 'self' is in fact similar, in that my various impulses, needs etc are individual players, playing as a team to survive and even to try to win...... In doing so they are creating a feeling that there is something substantial here.... But I am not sure which bit is gluing that whole process together and maintaining the facade. Who is managing Dave United??????
Have I gone way off of track?????
Sending love, Dave...........
Yes I can Totally relate & No You can't get off track !!! Everything will come up for You too for inquire & See through as real or unreal !?! This is really unexplainable & words tend to point too Duality & a Personality so bare with me ?!? If You take a Look at nature it has an intelligence but no Personality everything is moving changing flowing without claiming I done that, however it always feels & seems that We're doing it !!! When we Look into this We're making what seems like what's going on by words that have no real meaning to this, just theory's conception labels & pointers ?!? So when Looking at this realistically understanding nothing is explainable Who would be doing what & when or how ??? Hope that helps & whatever comes up don't worry weather being off track or not, it all leads too the same place Right Here Right Now Lol for real though no doubt !!! Sending Peace Love Life & Laughter Yours Truly Stafford
