Who, or What, are we ?

WHO, OR WHAT, ARE WE?

Are we our body?

Are we our mind?

Is the mind independent of the body(brain)?

Are we our thoughts?

Are we our emotions?

Are we our Soul/Spirit/Consciousness?

 

Our body, mind, thoughts, feelings can be observed. What is it that observes?

Can this act of observation also be observed? And this?

Do all these aspects of ourselves constantly change and only the act of observation remain constant?

 

What are your experiences of this 'Observer'?

 

If this interests you then take time out from your usual Sunday afternoon and spend a couple of hours in the company of other kindred spirits.

Entrance is free, just buy your own coffee and scrummy cakes.

    Ok David, I live in Brighton so walk everywhere! Not up for a bus ride to Rottingdean to be honest. But if you do events in Brighton I would love to come to a meeting. Yes we have met at Action for Happiness Project meetings!! :)

      Sorry, thought you lived in Peacehaven. Many come from Brighton, and there is someone looking for a lift, so if anything gets arranged I'll let you know too.

    We have lots of new people signed up for next Sunday. There will be a lot of regulars also. The group runs independent of Meetup, so not everyone signs up. The topic is at the heart of my philosophical thinking (and practice!). Should be a good day!
