In your thread!
Through many of samsara’s births I hasten seeking, finding not the builder of this house - pain is birth again, again. O builder of this house you’re seen, you shall not build a house again, all your beams have given away, rafters of the ridge decayed, mind to the unconditioned gone, exhaustion of craving has it reached.(Dhp - 153, 154)

There is knowledge that mind is just an idea, the idea being a consciousness, consciousness perceived to be a term that is appropriate (by consciousness). Arising of consciousness and its cessation/suibsiding can be experienced whereas there is no mind that can be experienced. If consciousness subsides there is just nothing. :sage:

The question "WHERE IS YOUR MIND?" does not apply. No locality, possession or state (of mind) has been declared.

Being a human being is not an end in itself. It’s only a transition. It can never be a perfect state in itself. It’s merely a convention. — Luang Por Sumedho
