Let's go a little deeper here. You still have a point of view. Surprisingly, there is no point of view, at all. There are thoughts ABOUT a point of view, centered around a self. So take another step back from the thoughts of "this seeing is emanating from a me who is still here and responsible for it".
When we look at the cup, there is just looking. There is no self looking. There is looking. Looking is. Looking is not labeling. Self is all about the label. Subject-object.
Note that the fear you mentioned is self hanging on, insisting that it is not possible to exist without a bunch of self-referential thoughts. And yet in the gap between thoughts, seeing and hearing and moving around happens. All the time. Reality, seeing, hearing, is all present prior to the claimant. Life is life-ing.
The perfect exposition of this is the Bhyia sutta:
In the seen, there is only the seen,
in the heard, there is only the heard,
in the sensed, there is only the sensed,
in the cognized, there is only the cognized.
Thus you should see that
indeed there is no thing here;
this, Bahiya, is how you should train yourself.
Since, Bahiya, there is for you
in the seen, only the seen,
in the heard, only the heard,
in the sensed, only the sensed,
in the cognized, only the cognized,
and you see that there is no thing here,
you will therefore see that
indeed there is no thing there.
As you see that there is no thing there,
you will see that
you are therefore located neither in the world of this,
nor in the world of that,
nor in any place
betwixt the two.
This alone is the end of suffering.
I love these gate questions. You can't fail them, True :-) They just tell us where we are still holding, a bit confused. I'm still confused! until I'm not. Like you. Just part of the play.
