Adyashanti: Mind puts a barrier up and thinks it has to get through it

That sounds familiar.

I notice this mostly with that remaining sense of an “I” – associated with sensations in the mouth and throat area, an image of an “I” or a doer, a sense of a center with “I” in the middle and everything else in the periphery, and a sense of solidity to this “I” center – lent to it by sensations in the mouth/throat, tension strengthening these sensations, and an interpretation of it as solidity. Thoughts say I need to resolve it somehow. It looks like the last barrier. And yet, when I look, it’s all sensations and images and nothing more. It happens within and as awareness as anything else. It’s free of any problem.
