+(+) Awakening is easy with thoughts ignored

Do not stop at any thought or you will be fixated there.

Do not stop at any thought, but move on as if there is nothing there, or you will appear to be fixated in the nothingness of a thought. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In the moment of dying you are forced to give up having a good feeling caused by a well-functioning body, if you do not want to be stuck in the game of the world as a dead body.

When the body stops working, it will seem like being in hell, trying to obtain happiness through something that is not there. But that is in fact the reality of every appearance in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet it may not be before in the moment of death it becomes obvious. Not in the sense, that you see the body for what it is. You cannot do that, because death cancels the memories of the body.

For a while there are thoughts floating around – like in a dream – without a connection to a specific ´I´ in physical body. Yet the physical desire for the pleasure that seems to be in a world where there seems to be more than one are is still there, if there is so much confusion about the new bodiless state, where thoughts rapidly are floating around, that panic sets in and a thought reasoned to result in pleasure is stopped.

»And his wife looking behind her, was turned into a statue of salt.« Genesis 19:26

Panicking, however, is not the problem. It can be ignored like any other thought passing by. The problem is, if you try to hold onto a thought imagining it will make you feel good. Nothing can make you feel good, because there is no memory of the body, that used to give you pleasure from smoking, having sex and whatnot.

The experience of death or life in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, that can be compared to having a dream. You are not there. But if you try to hold onto any part of it or to find a way it, you insist in experiencing it as something real. In other words: Stopping at any thought in an illusion will seem to freeze you into that specific part.

That which is you cannot be known, because it is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to know something.

But if you instead just follow the flow of thoughts until there are no more, which is easy, contrary to the hard work of holding onto thoughts in order make them manifest you as someone definitive, there is nothing to hide there never was and never will be anything else than the formlessness of that which is one.
