A Deeper Freedom: The Experience of Selflessness

Shinzen talks about how selflessness occurs in relation to the human sensory system:


1) Untangle the 
subjective sense strands; ”feel” [emotional sensations], “image” [mental images], “talk” [mental talk]

2) The “solid” strands decoagulate into their wave forms [“flow" in Shinzen’s system]
3) Eventually the flowing wave forms stop

4) Then the feel, image, talk, arises from zero[the nothing, void, “gone”, source] in an unblocked and fully expressed self.

Attract what you expect,
Reflect what you desire,
Become what you respect,
Mirror what you admire.

Well, we all like things to be predictable, don’t we? We expect things to be safe and to keep on happening just the way they always have. We expect the sun to rise in the morning. We expect to get up, survive the day and finish up back in bed at the end of it, ready to start all over again the next day. But maybe that’s just a trick we play on ourselves, our way of making life seem ordinary. Because the truth is, life is so extraordinary that for most of the time we can’t bring ourselves to look at it. It’s too bright and it hurts our eyes. The fact of the matter is that nothing is ever certain. But most people never find that out until the ground suddenly disappears from beneath their feet.
