ConsciousDreamer666 Posted February 16 Share Posted February 16 So here's the deal, ime Awareness or Consciousness seems to not be the body or the mind, since one can apparently focus on parts of the body, breath, thoughts, sounds or sight, it seems to be this 'thing' call Awareness or Consciousness is empty, it seems to be 'Me' and it seems to not have any limitations in the sense that I can 'imagine' it would be possible for this thing to be 'alive' or keep 'existing' once the physical body stops pumping blood (aka, what humans call 'death') and the brain stops functioning. So let's say that this apparent possibility, it's indeed true. So let's say 'my' body stops pumping blood, brain stops working. Body its in the soil now. No mental activity, no memory, no nothing. Awareness its still there. So what now? Does this awareness exist by itself? It would´t be even sight or sound (that comes apparently from the brain), so its not like Awareness could be 'entertained' with watching worms or hearing flies in the middle of the forest, while the body that was 'attached' or 'emanating from' its being decomposed. I'm quite frustrated that it doesn't seem to be answer to this. I am beggining to think total awakening (realization of Truth, there is no death, etc...) it's not possible! I can totally see that is only One mind, and there Is no separation actually. But, there doesn't seem to be a clear answer what happens with this 'empty awareness' when body+brain stops working.
