tolle causam, treat the cause

Post by lmp » Sat Jul 04, 2015 1:34 pm

When pain comes (lets call pain a fragment), another fragment also comes into awareness, the fragment that has assumed the role of me and that has taken on the role of setting all the other fragments straight or that tries to organize them.

This me-fragment is organizing the other fragments, it wants more of a certain kind and less of another kind. The me fragment is itself a result of trying to deal with the other fragments.

The point being that the me-fragment comes into being only when some action of affirmation/resistance takes place. When such action does not take place, we are not aware of a me-fragment.

We are just aware.

There is just awareness.

Awareness is what is.

Well said. Funny how the spinning storied voice of narration becomes a story of "me" organizing a bunch of abstractions of a reality that underneath mind's level of understanding sorts itself out just fine. Like you said, there is awareness. Interesting that.
