+ Forgetting to be someone is easy, when specific thoughts are not sought out

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

If you do not stop at any thought, but move on as if there is nothing there, thoughts do not seem to manifest anything, wherefore you do not appear to be fixated in something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In the moment of dying you need to give up the feeling of wellness caused by a functional body, if you do not want to be stuck in the consciousness of it.

When the body stops working, it will feel like hell trying to obtain happiness through something that is not there and never has been. Yet it may not be before in the moment of death that this becomes obvious. Not in the sense, that you see the body for what it is. You cannot do that, because when the brain is out of oxygen it cannot produce the thoughts, that seems to manifest you as if you are someone in a body.

It is not, that there are no thoughts in the transition from appearing to be in a body and to not appear, but just like in a dream they are floating around without being connected to a specific ´I´ in physical body, so it is not possible to add them up into what used to be the pleasure of physicality.

In other words, if there still are a desire to get satisfaction from smoking, sex or other things involving a body, panic sets in, because there is no body to deliver anything. There is just a rapid flow of thoughts that adds up to nothing.

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

Panicking is not a problem though. Just like any other thought or feeling passing by it can be ignored. The problem is, if you try to hold onto a specific thought or feeling, imagining that it will bring back a bodily pleasure. Nothing can do that, because there the brain cannot connect with a conscious experience of the body, that used to give you pleasure from smoking, having sex and whatnot.

The experience of dying as well as living is to be compared to having a dream, where you experience to be someone in its world, although you are not there but in your bed. In other words, the experiences of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is a deception. You are not there. Neither anywhere else, as it takes more than one to be somewhere, and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Yet you insist in being someone specific and not the formlessness of oneness. This claim you support by referring to special parts of the dream, that seems to establish you as someone definitive. It is probably so within the framework of a world where there seems to be more than one, but as there is no more than that which is one, your arguments does nothing but freeze you into the illusion of what that they mean to you.

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.

If you do not try to seek out thoughts to prove your existence as someone definitive but just follow the flow of them, , which is easy contrary to the hard work of holding onto specific ones in order make them paint a picture of you as someone specific, they will not last. Like everything else in a world where there seems to be more than one they are bound to end, and so nothing seems to hide there never was and never will be anything else than the formlessness of oneness.
