Got it and thank you for sharing. If you have a better explanation or have experienced something profound that might explain things, please share. And, I don't say that sarcastically. I am always searching for better explanations.

Just a word of warning. Once you begin to explain such matters you inevitably slip into stories, metaphors and ''Well... it's a little like this'' stuff, or sometimes, ''It's not at all like this''.

All words are b.s. because they are removed from and only talk ''about'' some event. They are NOT that event. Slippage occurs and sometimes much slippage occurs. Just the way it goes.

Love ya, Jed

Hi Moh:

Welcome to the forum and thank you for your post.

S/A worked for me, but that does not mean that it's optimal for everyone. So, you start with I am Mohammad. Right at the beginning you have that tricky little word ''I''. So, is it true that there is an ''I'' where you appear to be? Key word, ''appear''. And here is where I recommend turning to the methodology of Nisagardatta. His teacher told him to just contemplate the concept, feeling, thought, that he was, expressed as ''I am''. He contemplated that at every spare moment for almost three years. You cannot undo your lifetime of learning in a day or two. The influence of teaching, government, religion, friends and the like goes way too deep for an instant cure.

I suggest you stick with that starting point. You can use ''I am'' or just ''I''. Contemplate who or what this ''I'' is. And be patient... be very patient.

Write me any time.

Love ya, Jed.

Assuming I am writing to a human being, and not some kind of AI, please tell me something I don't know. Everyone has been, at some time, guilty or all the good or bad traits you mention... so what? I'm not impressed by your sense of uniqueness or seeking to somehow build personal importance. Get over yourself. You are not nearly as important as you think you are.

Let me ask you this.... where will all your concerns, worries, mind and body be in say... a thousand years?

Love ya, Jed

Thanks for you condensed version.

Let's cut to the chase... no prelude here, no sugar coating. When you realize that Truth is, what you think is ''you'' disappears. Someone trying to do things or assert power over you loses their impact. It's like they are trying to nail jello to the wall. What might be experiences as a sting in the past becomes insignificant. What is really significant in a dream when you have realized it's a dream?


Love ya, Jed.
