The Seeker is a dead entity.
How can a dead entity realize anything?

As long as a seeker is a seeker, the sought must remain un-found. Don't expect anything to make sense. Mysteries are fun.

Love ya, Jed.

One might describe it as ''hard'' and ''soft'' eyes. Relax your gaze. If there was a car accident in front of you then you would be focusing ''hard'' in order to see what happened. If you were relaxing in a field of flowers you focus would be ''soft''. That's about the best I can do to describe it.

Love ya, Jed.

Is it like trying to see a stereogram?

Love ya, Jed.

The Seeker, Seeking, creates the sought, which is none other than the seeker itself. And, if the seeker stop seeking there won't be neither seeker nor the sought.
The seeker and the sought appear and dissappear together at the same time. like every other pair: Question/Answer. Speaker/Listener, Love/Fear, Aggression/Cuteness etc.

I got you now Jed, you mean to look "out" like relaxing our vision, normally and then cross the eyes a bit like trying to look "inward" as if we were looking who is looking.
Right?

I am trying that everytime I am outside walking to any place, the supermarket, my car, to take a bus, etc...

I have done the exercise.
I have seen out: sounds, images, flavors, smells.
I have seen in: something hearing sounds, viewing images, smelling...  but what is that thing that is viewing, hearing...?
it is not my mind, she comes after the viewing, to interpret it and say: is a tree or a dog.
Before the mind there is someting like the wall in the Platoīs cave allegory,
the shadows need to "hit" the wall to exist, otherwise they canīt exist.
inside me there is something like a wall.
Sounds and images hit this wall to exist, othewise they canīt exist.

Walking had become a horror for me after I started having episodes of intense panic fear while walking in public/road etc . Which I seems to have in childhood also due to anxiety issues. Later intense egoic fear issues in work place triggered this panic walk episode filled with shame and fear.
So now resigned from work place as there is no immidiate financial emergencies and doing inquiry. Just shared.
Thanks
Pretheesh.

It seems one need to keep one constantly on track motivated to continue doing inquiry, it's easy to get sucked up in thoughts and fear of failure and other distractions instead of maintaining a observer-mind and focus or one-pointedness towards this process , even if this is not a self improvement process.
Any thoughts on it.?
