TSM135 : What is the Self ? The 5 Aggregates and Process Fields

In today’s walk and talk I explore the self through the Buddhist concept of the 5 Aggregates and Process Fields (my own idea, which is simlar to Alfred White Northhead’s Process Philosophy) and ask how we are to live when we can embrace a wider concept of self.

During the early part of this walk, I examine two dead sheep – who provide a real life example of the nature of the self. Don’t look if images of death frighten you. These things are a part of my day to day reality and reguarly remind me of the nature of the self.

More on the 5 Aggregates here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skandha and Process Philosophy here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Process_philosophy / https://archive.org/details/AlfredNorthWhiteheadProcessAndReality.

May your contemplations be grand and illuminating ! 😉

The Flux Itself

The Flux Itself

You are and are not
Constantly in the flux
You mistake yourself as a fixed entity
or a fixed set of processes
But you are neither …
You are the flux itself
the entity and the process
the blue and the sky
the black and the stars

Your youness is beyond the reach of words
You are a gathering of selves becoming I
A sense of I becoming I am

Your Iamness is beyond the reach of feelings
You are a cloud made of senses
A body of senses charging I am

Nothing remains as it was, is or will be
The flux the carrier of all impressions
The flux is the holder of all memory

Letting go of all structure
Letting go of all aspects of self
Letting go of all like and dislike
Letting go of all desire for the past, present or future

You encounter the flux
of all being and non being
And know the True Self

The Crack

The Crack

The crack keeps coming
Following us through time
The crack never fades
Arising with every mind

About who
there is no answer
About what
there is no question
What is it that is asking
What am I ?

The thing that lives inside the crack
Is the answer and the question
The great mystery that knows self and no self
It lives and it breathes and it dies and it exists
Always at rest in the movement
