A sudden realization: Breath is before thought, breath is before I, breath is before anything.

You were certainly breathing prior to you having a thought.

Love ya, Jed.

Is the breathing before "I Am" or is "I am" before breathing?

On version of ''I am'' as elucidated by Nisargadatta is that it comes into being at about two years old when a child begins to perceive and create his world. There are other versions of it though.

Love ya, Jed.

Got it. Yes, ego is definitely learned and projected. Love Nisargadatta' s "I am That". Next, what was it before it came to being?

I went to bed last night and woke up to this reality,
who was I when I was asleep?
who am I now when I'm awake,
how did I awoke myself in the first place?

What part shut down when I closed my eyes into oblivion,
where did "I" go?
Why did Maya made cardiovascular system automatic,
and leave me crying over it?

Jed, "I" have an idea! (Hmm Shunyamurti had the same analogy, are you Shunyamurti, Jed? The Supreme Self imagined a dream? Imagine there's no heaven...Anyway, I think I should journal my T/R progress, but I have something even better in my non - existent mind (mynd) - my end? What if I write a screenplay for the day dream, instead of a journal? Let's play.

Don't write anything, just realize you are everything and see if something get's written.

Love ya, Jed.

P.S. It will never be written by you anyways.

Hahahha then why did you write "Don't write anything" if it's not written by me? I've got nothing to do with it! (Said in Stanley Ipkiss while high voice)

But...it's so beautiful, even though it's not real. Every sense, every emotion, every thought. Everything. A wonderfully constructed play.
