No one, there is no self in any moment including the present one! There is only experiencing happening Now.Who or what could be IN the present moment to experience it?
Experience IS real. Thoughts and memories of past experence are believed to be real by the self. Once the shift has occurred, relationship to the past also shifts and the past is seen to be a story that has less relevance to this moment, now. The past does not have the same impact or influence that it once had.It seems like this, bit is this so at experience?
Trauma from a past event may still arise but it becomes easier to see that it is not personal, although healing/trauma release may still be needed.
I don't know very much at all to be honest. Just looking.And how do you know this?
Thoughts, feelings appearing in the mind.What is memory?
Only thoughts. Mental chatter.What is it that is considering these options?
Conflicting thoughts appear.Is there anything that is listing the pros and cons, or only just thoughts appear about pros and cons?
There seemed to be an apparent something listing the pros and cons, but when looked into it was simply another thought of listing pros and cons mascquerading as 'me'.
Nothing other than the situation.So the thought about the decision just appeared. What made that thought to appear?
No, it was simply a thought coming forward.Can you find the thing that made that decision, apart from the presence of the thought about the decision?
It's just mind activity and had nothing to do with an apparent me, just a 'deciding' thought appeared.How exactly the decision is made?
In fact, prior to all of this internal debating re. pros & cons, I looked really closely and the decision had aleady been made to eat it, so the mental cogitation was all a big joke in the end and seen through!
My body responding to the impulse to eat prompted by thoughts and this particular personality; conditioning/preferences/habit.Now, act according to the decision. (Either eat or don’t eat the chocolate.)
What is it that performed the chosen action?
Now can I watch the video please? lol.
Lots of love,
