"I" have found that the less there is of a "me" involvement in the experience (example Dukkha moments) the quicker they seem to subside...And the more that "I" become involved on a serious level, then the more "I" experience the suffering....
It's when "I" put too much emphasis on this "I" 's involvement (taking my self way too seriously) by attaching to the thoughts that arise ( taking ownership of them so to speak), is when "I" contaminate/corrupt/manipulate the experience ....
"I" am not saying that "I" wish to eliminate my self completely , "I"m just learning to use my self in a more constructive and beneficial manner...
Do you take your self too seriously ?
That is...Does there have to always be a "you" (a strong sense of self ) involvement in all experiences had ?
A new year's conundrum of sorts
"There was a sentient being (just add name here ) that said though, it seems "I" know that "I" know, what "I" would like to see is the "I" (eye) that knows "me" when "I" know that "I" know that "I" know !"
A New Year is upon us (again) ...May we all make it a Happy New Year ....by staying focused/mindful (a watchful mind's eye on the "I" ) and not taking our selves too seriously
