Concepts are just the building blocks of experience.
Are you saying you plan and map out your future experiences?
Are you not always experiencing even if you do not put a word (concept) on it?
Experiencing is what you are.
You are not a concept.
For heavens sake, if I identified with a concept as what I AM, why would I see it as something to have fun with, to exchange, to let go of, to use, or
The sensual experience of hunger (without name) happens.
Then there is my choice of experience in how to express that, what to experience next, of the exterior world.
(as there is an experience also, of a "self" and "exterior" of self that is happening also).
My concepts I have adopted to use yesterday will determine whether I express that through eating something or not, and what I shall choose to eat or
not. That does not mean that I will necessarily put any effortful thought into the choice- the choice was made yesterday, and my subconscious will
choose to use it today. Even if I am completely letting go of all willful deliberation in the moment.
Any and all concepts I decide to take in right now are chosen according to my future intents. I don't personally like to spend time thinking a lot
when I am in action exchange with the exterior world. I pre-program. I spend time, like this, in thought and analyzation, each morning, and then when
I get up and go out, I stop that and just react and experience.
I could do this alone, but it is more fun to do so with others, it is like a trading place of concepts. I get to discover concepts totally new to me
sometimes. But I always observe the effects those concepts create by listening to the one using them. Their current state of being and emotion are the
fruit of their concepts.
Now I have to get up and shower and go off to work, and my time in the trading place is over for today. The experiences I have will be the fruit of
the concepts I currently have put into my depths. If I find any of my experiences uncomfortable, then I shall consider changing them and getting more
effective ones tomorrow.
