That's an excellent starting point, now my question for you is how much are you willing to not understand?

Love ya, Jed.

Post It Note #73

I notice mind becoming transparent again and see through it, watching images, thoughts and feelings overlaid on what is seen.

It contains meaning which isn't there.

This isn't watching mind, it's seeing through mind.

Observation: this seems easier to discern when there is no mental narrative.

As soon as that has been observed, mental chatter dies down and attachment to thought is lessened with a distinct ease following.

In this state it becomes very difficult to make any sort of progress because it is so calm and relaxed.

I seem to be complaining. I'll just enjoy it and see what happens ... that's the point after all.

I think I understand.
The word 'pole' has many meanings. )
I described the cases in Gdansk.
I wanted to say about synchronicity.

What does autumn look like in your place?

Thank you, I appreciate the surprisingly rational questions.

--
I've had this idea that all thoughts are the same thought. The one same tree, somehow viewed as infinite variety. If you were in a forest of 1 duplicate tree and you wanted to convince me why certain trees were important, unique, special, (whatever), I would find it amusing. My point is that there's no strategy or paradigm within thoughts, just wandering through the (apparent) woods.

I've sat around being highly mindful of breath and observing thoughts as they arise. I center awareness on the thoughts and they disappear and I'm brought to awareness every time, every single thought has the same effect as "I am" when centered on.
Yesternight I was doing this and noticed some kind of mental jaggedness. It's like there's a glitch, it's similar to a youtube video which lags and catches up quickly and it's subtle. Hopefully not a brain tumor. I can reproduce the glitch to some extent so I'll let you know how the investigation goes. Whisper in my ear says its just maya but I have to participate until interest fades.

Yes, thank you.

Round and round we go.

Can mind really change anything?

How can a thought affect what is real? It appears and disappears without a trace.

Can mind change what I am?

Everything I am doing is avoiding what I am.

I still identify with doing.

What am 'I' doing in all of this?
