Do not stop thoughts and feelings, but use them as a take-off to indifference of ´the empty breath´

Every thought or feeling is a reminder, that the appearance of something cannot cause you to suffer, if the thoughts and feelings about it is not shared or justified with the world*, but used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath, as in the company of its indifference there are no thoughts and feelings to define you as someone definitive and thus nobody to suffer.

As this results in a state of not-knowing, it is not before the connectedness with the empty breath is left, that there is someone to know, not believing to be someone definitive is the end of all suffering.

This is not meant to be understood, as it is not necessary to take care of the body, because even though the empty breath reveals, that appearing to be in it – or anywhere else – is an illusion, it is through the illusion of being there, that you connect with the empty breath.

And you have to connect with it again and again, because the connection cannot not last very long, if you want to remain as if you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, since the brain falls into coma, if not kept active with thoughts of you as someone separated from others.

See where to find the empty breath in the article Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´, how to do it in the articles Take-offs to ´the empty breath´ and How to ignite take-offs to ´the empty breath´, and what it feels like in the articles What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? and The most exciting aspect of ´the empty breath´, namely indifference, is not exciting but liberating.

But if you do not want to remain as someone separated from others, you do not mind the brain falling apart, so it no longer can map out empty space, as if it is a world where there seems to be more than one, and therefore not something to hide that such a world is an illusion, since that which is one is formless and therefore endless.

To make long short, regardless you want to remain as someone definitive or not, the state of not-knowing induced by the empty breath is bound to end after 20 minutes, at the most 45, so that the consciousness of being someone definitive can be resumed or totally erased.

No need to worry about having your consciousness totally erased, if you accidentally stay too long in a state of not-knowing. First of all, hardly anybody come to the point where the brain starts falling apart, and should you reach the point of no return but want to return, fear of survival will set in, which is enough to reboot the brain and bring you back as someone definitive.
