  1. Perhaps... I don’t see why though. I would say it just take an interest. An interest in ourselves.
  2. @Barry J 🙏🏿I’m not is opposition to Buddhism or any “thing”. I am only interested in sharing the significance of possibly bypassing all that which time/thought has put together as a means to freedom. For me personally there was a direct seeing into the whole nature and structure of time/thought as a means to FREEDOM. There wasn’t this movement of progression, cultivation of time, or process of any kind. It was an instantaneous and holistic insight into the futility in looking to time/thought to end the burden in which time/thought had created... I feel I am not in any way special, and that this can be seen by all. I am here to share with anyone interested
  3. Is this search for happiness-satisfaction in “things” (of the mind) the same movement that causes unhappiness-dissatisfaction? When we look to the mind-thought(“things”) to fulfill our own sense of psychological contentment, isn’t that actually what causes psychological discontentment? When the self looks to THOUGHT(i.e. A Buddhist Path-teaching) to attain and sustain a state of psychological security, isn’t that actually nourishing what reinforces that very psychological insecurity? For the self to seek security in thought is to sustain that very continuity of self, which is to strengthen the illusion of division between the experiencer and that which that “experiencer” experiences.
  4. Pride, anger, belief, all actually one and the same movement of fear-“i”... As long as there remains the space between “the i” and pride, anger, belief(FEAR), that fear will continue everlastingly. This fear (which implies conflict), only takes place when there is this “movement of time as the i” that perpetually looks to evade the fact of what is, to the abstraction of what should be. As to do so implies that the notion of being an entity distinct from pride, anger, belief, has not actually been seen through. As long as this false division between “the experiencer and the experiences” is not actually seen though, conflict will inevitably continue to bring about action-reaction of the self.
  5. Is there an awareness to thought when in movement or not? Is there an understanding of the inherent limits of thought itself? Have we explored into these limits? And... Can there be an awareness to the subtleties that call on the operation of thought, or that are implicit within this structure/movement of thought? As in.. The question of “how” do “we” “know” ...perhaps these three in “quotes” may be one and the same movement of thought responding, but maybe an unawareness of that movement as it arises? Has then thought responded while being unaware that it has done so? And if so, would this imply one has right out of the gate started with the pre-assumption that thought hadn’t responded yet? Therefore, has one already been caught in thought, although continues as they hadn’t been. Is there an awareness to this process of registration, recollection, and response as it arises? Do you see the significance in being able to observe such a movement-process in motion? Doesn’t it seem reasonable to understand the limitation of thought, it’s nature, structure, and process? If so, atleast now one knows what to explore
  6. Only thought as the chooser identifies or chooses to dis-identify... Identification being implicit in the nature, structure, and process of thought. All that is left to inquire into is thought and its nature.
  7. The self will seek security in thought. The self (image of the past), will take shelter in an image accumulated from the past(i.e. ideas about consciousnesses, god, and various other religious movements). Thought will identify with anything of thought to sustain its own movement of time-illusion. How then does one know when they have invented GOD, CONSCIOUSNESS etc.? Do we see the subtletie of this?
  8. Perhaps looking for a solution is part of the problem. Or, what does Buddhism have to do wth it? Why not understand what’s going on..why not understand the problem?
  9. @egoless I am afraid you pre-assume in regards to how I live and what I share. If you have read through any of my posts you will see that I do not concern myself with non-dual theory, methods, systems, techniques, routines, the cultivation of experiences. Infact, have you ever actually read anything I write about, or has the veil in which you perhaps observed through done all the reading/understanding?
  10. It’s quite interesting the numerous traps constructed by the chooser that chooses. Methods, systems, techniques, routines, the cultivation of experiences... perhaps one can completely bypass-sidestep all the limitation that time(psychological becoming) presents. Truth is a trackless wilderness
  11. What subconscious? Confirming to a view is an example of the supposed freedom in will-choice. Truth is not fixed, therefore it’s doesn't belong to “me”-“you”.
  12. @egoless what’s non-duality? what practices?
  13. Figured you would No way as way... 🙏🏿
  14. Seeking psychological security in getting a buzz, and seeking psychological security in “spirituality”, really being one and the same movement of the self seeking security in thought(pleasure).
  15. 🙊Indeed... an example of “the i” clinging to its own movement/content.
