Hello Django and Guillaume,

Is it really consciousness that is looking for some answer or our lack of awareness of this consciousness?
Makes sense?

Have a great day!
Antoine

ahah, quite fun! Mmmh, I would say my consciousness was fed up to see my lack of awareness lost in nonsense!

one of the best things I ever did...or best advice I ever got from a Therapist friend.

If you let wild horses out of the corral to run all over---you can't
expect to simply call them back to the corral and calm them with a whistle.
My (ex) guru once said.

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru.

Hi Antoine!

Defining consciousness as —“The having of perceptions, thoughts, and feelings; awareness”
My consciousness as it is now is looking for a higher consciousness - because I feel like something is missing.
So I turn the light of my consciousness (as it now is) inwards, to examine my own thoughts, feelings and awareness, believing that the key to solve this feeling of lack lies within.

Being the breeze caressing the tree leaves or being the tree feeling the wind.

Don't know which I am.

Yin and Yang pointing to Tao.

Just one question: when you see yourself as one consciousness, or when you move your awareness when in trance, do you see projected images in front of your eyes, or is it at the back of your mind?
I'm really wondering because I've had hypnagogic visuals at night that were very vivid and projected to my eyes, but the meditation work is mostly done at the back of the mind (sometimes projected but that's rare).
Not sure it's clear but that's how I experience it.

I saw images from my third eye as if they where in front of me some 25 years ago and before. Now there is no more body. Images of worlds or other do come and go sometimes, but they are not outside of me anymore. There is no outside or inside.

The same goes, but differently, when I am walking or doing something, there is no more doer anymore, just the doing.

Hope it helps.
