Recently I had been challenging some ideas via this form. The biggest question being the nature of the self and it's existence, I was trying to be provocative on purpose, self debate was getting me nowhere. I needed some external input and I got some great responses. When I was a younger man I excepted the ideas of emptiness and the illusion of reality without question I took it at face value. Events and life experience began to tell me otherwise. I had observed through my interactions with other people most importantly my children that the answers supplied by
scriptures did not square with what I was experiencing.
My observations in my career as a commercial diver showed me a world so alien intricate and independent of my daily life. I thought there Had to be more than just the illusion of Mind. And then I heard a simple statement by Krishnamurti during a recorded interview where he spoke of Dependent and Independent reality and it frickin hit me it was the moment of clarity and precision I was looking(I get it) for with that simple statement I have removed several barriers and I can now understand other statements from other sources that did not otherwise seem logical.
Good luck in all your endeavors
