My last topic got a lot of negative responses and misinterpretations, so I decided to make a new one to make up for the previous one. Perhaps this path is more helpful.
I am no thing. Everything is simple once this is realized.
Whenever I am no thing, there is freedom. Suffering is resistance to what is now, so suffering cannot exist when I am no thing, since there is no one to resist what is now. It is that simple. No need for special ideas, feelings or realizations when you are in a state of presence. No need to believe that everything is good as it is. As long as you are no thing, you cannot cling to any object, and suffering cannot be there.
I am no thing, because all objects are conditioned. There is no I controlling them, since they are controlled by the totality. Once this is realized, there can be no more choice to make, since there is no I who can choose.
As long as there is delusion (I am this, I am that), there are choices to be made. The only helpful choice, however, is to become present. Everything else, even choices that seem beneficial, will keep suffering alive, because you will keep being a thing.
So whenever there is suffering, craving, perception of wrong action, perception of wrong speech, etc. that is your alarm bell that says 'there is delusion, I have become a thing'. Now the only choice is to become present. How? By removing delusion or by thinking about it, you maintain the feeling that there is something that needs to be done and thus maintain the delusion. Instead, just remember: I am no thing.
Now ALL I need to do in life, is to remember that I am no thing whenever I feel that I am a thing. There are NO other choices to be made anymore.
Why does it even matter then? It doesn't, that's the joke. When you are no thing, nothing matters. But when you are a thing, everything matters. So you exchange wanting something for wanting freedom and then by realizing you are no thing, even wanting freedom dissolves. There is nothing more that needs to be done now.
