Okay. I thought I had this thing, I thought I had a pretty good understanding of the mind and its concepts of the world and how it plays games with you to keep you believing in illusions that are never real. But something I just heard Jeff Foster say in a video almost made me angry. It literally made me think "What is this I am hearing?! Can this be true? Have I been wrong all this time?" YouTube - Jeff Foster - pointers on Nonduality (Advaita) and Oneness - Audiobook In the beginning of the clip Jeff is describing how there's nobody there thinking, seeing, feeling. Is this truly true D), is it so that there IS NO CONSCIOUSNESS? Is it another fable told by the mind? I finished reading about Tolle's descriptions of the awareness being the space in which contents exist, the nothingness in which everythingness is located. But it never struck me like this. Is there really nothing there, or is there just no 'thing' there? Is it only a thought of the mind, or are the thoughts pointing to something actual? Is the consciousness something, or is it nothing? Is there an "I" at all? Is there no-one driving this vehicle that is my corporeal whole, my body in all it's atoms? Is this body just meat and brains, operating under the illusion of choice? Is consciousness or awareness just the opening through which life operates? I can't really come up with any more words for my question... I'm not even sure what I'm asking here... I just felt really cheated suddenly and there was an urge to find an answer.
