Blessed2 Posted May 3 Share Posted May 3 (edited) This might be a bit silly but hey it's the emptying-section! @Phil I remember you once wrote something about there not being experiencing misery anymore. When you wake up in the morning, is there no discord? No suffering? I wonder how / why it is that when I wake up, there is. Perhaps not the very one-hundreth-of-a-second after waking but maybe five seconds in. But I imagine that there is some who wake up and do not experience suffering at all. Why is that? I mean in sleep, there is nothing. So how is it that in waking up, all freshed up of nothing, discord still seems to arise. Maybe someone would say it has something to do with the brain, that there is some sort of wiring that continues the thought-attachment, beliefs etc. even though one wakes up from nothingness of sleep. But I suspect that's not it. For you the nothigness of sleep must be the same as it is for me. You're as clueless and self-unconscious the moment you wake up as I am. How come one then experiences self-referential thoughts, discord, attachment etc. and another does not? 🤔 If it's not "hardwired", where does the thought-attachment, beliefs, discord and suffering even come from?! 😂 Edited May 3 by Blessed2 Quote Mention Everyone is waiting for eternity but the Shaman asks: "how about today?"
