Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Hi Kay Sorry this has taken so long to reach you. The stinking cold of my last post was actually more of a horrible lurgy-thing and knocked me out for a few days. Well, we have come to the end of our exploration! It has been such a wonderful journey with you to the gateless gate, I have loved every ...

Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Hi Kay Just letting you know, I haven't run away. My concluding reply to you should be considered and conclusive, but I've had a virus since the middle of last week that's pretty much knocked me flat, and I just haven't been clear-headed enough to complete it yet. I'm so sorry for the delay, but I p...

Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Hi Kay Thank you so much for your kind words. I think we’ve both made a pretty concerted effort myself, so let’s split the Prosecco 50/50 😊 As ever, I send love from autumnal England. There’s no avoiding the march of time here now—the days are shrinking and the warmth and yellow light of late summer...

Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Hi Kay Thank you as always for your previous post, it was great to receive it. I’ve read back over some of our correspondence on this thread since I got it, and I’m kind-of speechless at the paradigm shift that’s taken place since we began this adventure in – blimey – May, already. I had an inkling ...

Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Hi Kay can you just let the unfolding happen without thinking there is a you who needs to ‘work at it”? A lot of this exploration is about understanding and not actually having the penny dropping moment. Let the understanding filter throughout the system and the penny dropping moment happens when it...

Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Sorry, I neglected to delete this passage from the post: Does the image itself suggest in any way that it is a ‘body’ at all? No. Without thought it’s just colours and shapes. I am able to see that, albeit again quite briefly. It’s easier to see when looking downward from the face and head; it seems...

Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Hi Kay First of all, apologies once again for keeping you waiting for this reply. As I wrote last time, my mum’s been in the wars these last few days and I’ve been taking care of her (she’s 86). She’s absolutely fine now but it capped a week characterised by distractions and I’m sorry for the result...

Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Hi Kay This is to let you know that I'll be replying in full to your previous post tomorrow. I'm so sorry for the long wait; my dear mum was taken ill on Thursday and I've been preoccupied with looking after her. To great relief all round she seems to be back to herself today so, accordingly, I will...

Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Hi Kay A fond hello from a happy-but-'sensational' (i.e. ‘aching’) me :-) I don’t know if commencing a sugar detox on the same day as a hardcore workout regime with a personal trainer is a wise strategy for an unfit man but I’ve done it. So I’m a bit scatty and can’t really move from the chest up, b...

Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Hi Kay Thank you for your reply. Full response to follow. For now I just wanted to write: The actual experience of the body = AE of thought. Thought points to sensation and infers that it is a body. Does the sensation itself suggest in any way that it is a body, or that it knows anything about a bod...

Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Clarification: " It refers to a notional shell for the mind, to the literal embodiment of the ‘I’ thought." should read:

" It also refers to a notional shell for the mind, to the literal embodiment of the ‘I’ thought."

Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Hi Kay Much love to you today. All is well here. Sit with eyes closed for about 15 minutes. Paying attention only to the pure sensations, without relying on thoughts or mental images: Can it be known how tall the body is? As per your direction, sensation is the singular focus during this exercise an...

Re: Returning to LU after time away; seeking a guide

Hi Kay It’s been an interesting week in which to do this exercise. My old upstairs neighbour and I became friends 3 or 4 years ago and we both moved out of our shared block 6 months back. This week I saw her for the first time since then and our meeting was, to my surprise, more like a real date. Wh...
