Inno Posted July 14, 2022 Share Posted July 14, 2022 Diving straight in. When using the Neti-Neti buddhist approach, one realizes that anything that you can be conscious of is ultimately not "you". I am aware of (my) body, thus I am NOT the body. I am aware of sensation, thus I am NOT sensation. I am aware of (this) though, thus I am NOT (this) thought. I am aware of *whatever*, thus I am NOT *whatever*. Following the approach, we arrive at the knower, that can not be known. To the fire that can not burn itself. To the eye that can not see itself. However, and this is where my mind can't comprehend: When checking direct experience, there is no real separation between Seer, Seeing & Seen. No separation between Consciousness and the object of Consciousness. How can Consciousness (you) be Conscious of and at the same time One with and not separate?@Phil This sort of reminds me of you explanation of why Infinite can not know finite, however still a mindfuck.
