Letting go.

Being.

Mindfulness.

True not knowing.

Asking who am I?


We are enslaved by anything we do not consciously see. We are freed by conscious perception.

@Shaun intuition. Love. Creativity for the sake of it. Intelligence is a means for survival historically, but if you think about it, that's not actually its function. Animals use intelligence for survival, but intelligence is not hinged on survival. Actually there are many activities, such as meditation, that like you said can be used for survival in a roundabout way, but are actually grounded in consciousness, which transcends. There are so many things you do that aren't hinged on survival, which separate humans from other animals. Think creative expression. Anything spiritual. Psychedelics (although they can certainly be used to enhance life or get over addictions, their main purpose is to raise consciousness for the sake of knowledge and experience). Survival is a limited notion that is meant to be transcended.

@Shaun Leo has a good video called 'Ten Things You Don't Know You Want'. I re-watch it when I feel I need to break out of the survival mode.

Breath and relaxation. Survival is tension and resistance.

Trying to "achieve" a more conscious life is still survival, isn't it? ???

How about conscious surrender to death - that's not survival, is it?

Yep, the end of maintaining the illusion that there was someone. The best way to go is with this realization.

Yeah end of all suffering and struggle maintaining ficticious character. Which was never real. 

People think that they will miss their family and Kids and Whatever they cling to but when ego death comes they want to merge back with God. Such liars including myself.
