Ok,  MR. Ego was lying. He can't love himself and I don't know who I am so I will just meditate.

I found a video on youtube about the fruits of zen practice, it seems to me that the person who is talking knows about zen (but I am not an expert).

And he says that just sitting in silence, at some point enlightenment will happen.

I am feeling the uselessness of words and thoughts are making me giving up on continue trying to grasp an understanding with my mind, so I thought staying in silence seems a good option for me.

I know there's no fixed technique on this but do you think Jed that's a good option?

Thanks in advance!

O.K., excellent.. now start at the beginning, sit.. I assume you can do that, but can you sit still, very, very still for a few hours at a time... maybe...???

Next, silence your mind while you are sitting very, very still.

Be still and be silent, and know you are God. What could be simpler?

I wish you luck, but I'm not going to bet the farm on you.

Love ya, Jed.

There's no one,  it's empty.  The body is the trap.

The body is like a transmitter or receptor through which we experience everything. I understand the emptiness but I still can't accept no self. I believe that I accept the idea of no self but is a lie.

I think I need a break of thinking and trying,  I'm very confused. I just wanna be what is. But no idea how.

Thinking and trying won't work. You've done those all your life. No wonder you are confused.

Love ya, Jed.
