The purpose of this meditation is to familiarise myself with the emptiness of my I.

I contemplated:

My body is made up of a bunch of things. If my body is anything it is simply the name I give to a collection of things that’s not my body.

My mind is made up of a bunch of thoughts. If my mind is anything it is simply the name I give to a collection of things that I’m not my mind.

Myself: my I- these are the names I gave to the collection of my body and mind. But I know that my body and my mind are mere name. Therefore my eye is simply a name. It does not exist – it cannot exist in the way it appears

.

I contemplated these points and when a feeling of the emptiness of my I appeared I focused on it as the object of my meditation.

Dedication

May I and all living beings realise the emptiness of all phenomena.

Practice in the meditation break

I will try to remember that all phenomena I like illusions.
