Good post...I agree with your comment...my dilemna is that 'giving up' is a 'doing'. It's like having the desire to get rid of desire...always desire there...always doing.
Want want want.Give up wanting altogether.Do give up the wanting.Uhh... what a paradox :p
Ha ha, well... "Give up (the idea of) doing."The mistake is thinking that there is anyone doing in the first place. That 'doer' is not real ;)
Ta-Wan: Good point...there is no doing when 'no-one' exists. When entering 'the flow' during a combative match, like kickboxing, 'I' don't do a lot. It happens...a not-doing as well, but kickboxing happens...and it is blissful. No doer exists.
It's great, but a sticky trap. We ask people to deny or see that no one does. We don't want them to deny a self in a way that depresses them (that fake self) but in a way that shatters illusion and has them realize true being oneness.
Yes, so true. It is important for us to have good self-esteem and self-worth...and also to see through self-delusion. Love the paradox of living and yet no one is there...
