The mind doesn’t exist ha!  The mind is simply a conceptual system or metaphor that we made up.  Try to locate the mind in reality.

Then why do we proceed in moving dualistically and act according to that divisive movement of self/conditioned mind/thought. 

 

Why all this cultivation of mind/thought/time if we see it doesn’t exist?

Why assume the ‘mind’ is necessarily joined at the hip with thoughts?  The mind is a thought-story.  Don’t confuse thoughts with necessarily being in a mind.  That’s a container metaphor, which is itself a thought-story.  Thoughts are independent of mind.  When I do Do Nothing Meditation, I sense thoughts but no mind.  See?  Mind is a cultural construct, where thoughts as thoughts are not.  Thought-stories are cultural constructs, whereas the thoughts themselves are not.

@Mikael89 For you and people who have done some self inquiry but as far as i know most people believe thoughts appear IN the mind, thats factually incorrect.

The conditioned consciousness (conditioned mind) is thought. The self with all its conditioned movement.

not talking theoretically here. 

 

What I am referring here to mind(consciousness) is all movement of the self.

If the conditioned mind (self) does not exist, why do we continually act in accordance to that illusion?
