Talk about a 'shell' 'game'!

This kind of philosophy (philo = Life; sophy = wisdom) strikes me a just a shilly-shally word stew. I must say, I do not find it respectable.

If there is no such thang as a personal 'I', why do 'you' even exist in the first place? What the heck are 'you' doing here?

Give logic a break, please!!

When there are teachings to not react to your thoughts, the actual opposite is occurring isn't it when one complies with another's ways / teachings / practices / thoughts .

Do you see the irony and the contradiction in it all?

Yah, back when I was in psych grad school, I was introduced to the notion of schiphrenogenic parents who literally drove their kids 'shizo' by giving them impossible-to-comply-with because self-contradictory 'instructions', a simple/funny illustrative example being:

Davidsun,

Well said!

....and so "this thought came to mind", while contemplating this "Ignore your Mind (sign)" method of enlightenment...

“We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
—Albert Einstein

...Whose Mind is I AM using to "ignore the sign", in the first place?

The first step to Enlightenment is to realize there are no other steps for I AM to take...to GO Where I AM Has Always Been!
