vertical line couldn't find it

unless mind=thought

other than that there is no nebulous lingering "mind" other than thought and memory

and there is no body, thought, and memory other than the idea of them

so all of this is thought and idea

but can the thought "I am seeing" see?  does the thought "I am hearing" hear?

are there even thoughts to begin with?

no body eh? wtf is that and WHERE did you read it?

not thoughts either? wtf is that and where did you read it?

WHAT did the attention do to you that you dont have one.

oh yeah and btw i used to be into this no mind propaganda crap.

decided i was deluded.

so are you.

you just need to get your head out of your butt and wake up.

its not about couldnt find it.

look and that which looks is it.

im not saying turn your mind inward and think thoughts and attach to thoughts.

one time i wrote something about no mind that made perfect sense. all i accomplished was messing up a persons mind. now im quilty.

i dont know what your problem is with thinking and the attention.

WHY wouldnt you want these things?

It all points to a nebulous. A practical representation of the first moon that suggests among other things a material reality (a capsule) for the ego.

That the ego has a capsule - that it can feel pain and pleasure (..etc) - makes preservation and hedonism the ultimate end and truth.

.........

The question and the questioner are the same. There can be no questions at all without the question: "Who I?"  

From the belief that "I need to be awake" arises the question 'How?'. From the belief that "I need to meditate" arises the question 'How?' and so on.  'How?' the question of questions. 

But there is no 'how?' so the question stops and the idea of the questioner disappears. 

ps - There is no such thing as a normal man.

rustic i dont seek enlightenment.

ive said before.

enlightenment seeks enlightenment,

enlightenment is NOT an outside thing. nor an inner thing.

that which looks for enlightenment is it.
