A tangible, definable "I" does lie beyond the mind, finding it and strengthening it is your task here at this juncture.
It is difficult to describe how one experiences reality without the use of the mind, as mentioned it is something that needs to be experienced to be understood. Just as you need a loved one to see the view from the mountain you climbed for themselves, as the words do not do it justice.
Happy to expand on this in any way i can, this is an enormous study that spawns off into many different areas.
No problem, i can identify with the struggle that takes place internally as you learn, forget, wake and then fall asleep - it's the constant battle of God vs Satan, good vs evil.
Once the consciousness is found (through meditative and awareness practices), you have started the journey many others before you have undertaken which is the battle to remove ourselves from the physical body, from the ego, from time and associate with the consciousness and it's superior qualities.
Black Magic appeals to the mass mind. It appeals to the principles of our civilization. It offers something for nothing. As long as there is cupidity in the human heart, it will remain as a menace to the honesty and integrity of our race. - Manly P. Hall from Magic: a Treatise on Esoteric Ethics

it is amazing how u love to try confusing ur subjective life with truth the more u become constant conscious existence
since when a man that expect his wife to prepare meals is a normal man ?? it is a sick animal from that fact for sure so how that u r suggesting it to meditate
any normal man enjoy making his dinner with his own hands, man by definition is free so hate to lean on anyone else especially for his constant needs
it says how all now is evil so opposite to truth fundamentally
in truth, man is the individual freedom that is out of true superior perspective of truth existence in abstract objective terms
woman is the individual value that is out of true superior perspective of truth existence in concrete objective terms
that is how man so individually sees himself objectively as nothing
while women individually sees herself objectively as someone
while since truth is infinite superiority of freedom values a man if he realizes himself according to abstract objective superiority he would become true, which is beyond anyone as constant infinite superiority
while a woman if she realizes herself according to concrete objective superiority she would become absolute free value but only one herself realisation
it is two different ways according to positive free wills, freedom that are driven to stay free but superior freedom and freedom that are driven to exist so superior object
while now genders are the opposite
men are meaning to pretend superiority to possess objects life
and women are meaning to pretend inferiority to b free of everything
so women are what suggest loving to b free, which is a lie since they are just suggesting it on purpose
and men are what suggest loving things life, which is a lie since they are forcing it to act above

2. The origin of suffering is attachment.
Not so much desire, as it is needed.
It is attachment that causes suffering.edit on 12-5-2012 by rom12345 because: (no reason given)

if men are pretending to be superior so that they can control everything... and they have succeeded in history as is shown, then women can't be PRETENDING can they? they are simply reflecting what is apparent in their reality.
furthermore... because they wish to be free of everything?
come on... women bind themselves to responsibility more than what you are willing to accept.
how many women compared to men up and leave their children?
