Hi I'm Linda, but you can call me Paloma. My ego likes that better. I will try and find a pretty picture of me to further support my image. :smile:
Seriously, I'm glad to find an easy way to have discussions on buddhist topics, which I haven't typically done.

I wondered if anyone had comments that might help me let go of some concepts I struggle with, regarding consciousness and the brain. My intellect tells me it's all brain activity. That when mind and body die, my consciousness ends, instead of my buddha nature merging with ground consciousness. When these thoughts come up, I know I am clinging to a notion of consciousness.

Your new member, Paloma

Hi Paloma :hi:

Concepts don't drop by magic. I suppose practice might be one way . . . :popcorn:
