Self-refuting idea!

Updated on June 27, 2012

Day # 1

Consciousness I sense that is you?

I am experiencing life alone.

As far as I know I am the only one.

Everything is for me.

Am I an experience for the ones I experience?

I am experiencing them so this is true to me.

I feel only when my consciousnesses is aware.

This is always true.

If this is true to me.

Should I be able to control my world around me?

I will start by dismissing everything I have known as true.

First question.

Am I real?

      You have been born. This is the world around you. Yes, you must get in touch with self. You will learn soon who you are when you separate from others and feel the boundaries. Blessings, Debby

      P.S. Where do you get all the lovely photos, paintings and images for your Hubs?

      Allow me to present to you another point of view CK . It kind of follows the Hindu and Buddhist approach .

      Only the conscious is real . Everything else right down to our own body is fleeting , wavering , constantly-changing as per our perception . But then what is this consciousness ? . I believe even this consciousness has an end . An end that comes along with the end of I (individualism ). I also believe that all consciousness is the same . Just at different stages . To me consciousness is perception at its infancy stage and realization at culmination .

      As for controlling the world around you . I think its possible when your perception changes according to the world changing inside you .
