Morning Jed,
I took a few months off the stick to the insides of my brain and listen to its syrupy stories about how I need this and donít want that. Kinda a silly move but thatís how it goes. But destiny or whatever is still showing the real more and more clearly. Today I had the clear insight that the world and my mind/body are just all the same phenomena. Attention is the conduit that I feel connects me to this phenomenological projection of the human experience game. Sometimes the attention gets sucked right into it. Other times truth is spoken from people like you and itís recognised (or rather life is becoming really obvious about revealing itís true nature and keeps plopping truth paintings in my human experience) OR it just happens I see the phenomena of life as just what is happening. There is no doer in this scenario just projected events. But mind used to trick me by making memories seem like a real thing that happened on a timeline to give an impression of continuity. And hopes for the future did the same thing. But they are just cognitions. I am like floating attention, with no decision maker. There seems to be an intelligence to what this attention is tho inspite of its intangibility. Itís like there is a void behind this most basic form of attention that Iím able to detect. Have you realised this void? Is it where I will go ďfurtherĒ? Maybe it has no agenda and some random mechanism makes the projection play out as it does. But I do wonder if in this void there is a direction

.... a direction in a void??? Just go there, do it, realize it and then you will have a better answer than I could ever give you.

Love ya, Jed.

Yeah I kind of did later yesterday. Itís like prior to thought. Just peace. All well and good but without thinking and desire I just sit there like Iíve had a lobotomy and then eventually I get bored and go back to making plans to get the carrot and the end of the stick. Are these my two options? Lobotomy or chasing the carrot? Neither really appeals for Long

Find the ''you'' that thinks you have options.

Love ya, Jed.
