Being identified via thinking, feeling, perceiving, which are the activities of the separate self, creates the impression that I am inside a bubble: The unhappy me-bubble that seems to exist in time and space.
‘I’ seems to be dependent on time and space, on circumstances, on situations, on the body. The experience is one of a physical, opaque world body mind.
The substance/reality of this density, of this impression of physicality is transparent aware presence, infinite, boundless and eternal.
As thinking and feeling take the lead, it is possible to go to the heart, to the core of the activity, which is the stillness, the non-activity of consciousness/awareness.
A sort of diving-in rather than retreating into thinking and resisting.
