Re: I need help

Hi Nessie, Sorry for the delay but I have succumbed to problems with my eyes. There is nothing I can respond to in what you have posted because you have not written from direct experience. There has been little or no value in our communication since a post when you expressed fear (taking the form of...

Re: I need help

Hi Nessie, In experience are there two things going on or one? So as you are reading this sentence is there anything other than a sentence being read. Can anyone or anything be found doing that or is it simply happening. The words are seen and recognition of meaning occurs...... If imagined things a...

Re: I need help

Hi Nessie, What is the 'you' that is either identifying with life or not? If there is not identification with life, what is being identified with? Is anything not life? This consciousness, which is not experienced as being all of consciousness. All is life, all is consciousness, but no single part o...

Re: I need help

Hi Nessie, Well, are you Life expressing itself an Nessie? Close, but not quite. Life is expressing itself as Nessie, but I don’t identify with that life. I feel like life is pushing me around. Close but no cigar (as we might say in England)..... Well at least this leads us away from intelectualisin...

Re: I need help

Hi Nessie, What causes me to be me. I can only assume that someone or something wanted me to be this way, and therefore made me this way. Well, are you Life expressing itself an Nessie? Can I choose not to be me? If I can, I haven’t found the way. Well, have a look. Can you choose to be someone else...

Re: I need help

Hi Nessie, Not sure anything can be known to be true, but observation supports it. You can only say that some person is healthy, if some other person is not. You can only say that some person is rich, if some other person is not. That some person is happy, if some other person is not. If not, the wo...

Re: I need help

Hi Nessie, Thanks for your responses. I am sorry to learn that you have been sufferring... I reread it. Your posts, as you suggested, was very interesting, valuable and insightful. As for mine, I find it very difficult to identify with the person who wrote those words. Really?. Did something happen....

Re: I need help

Hi Nessie, ...but where does the desire to inquire come from? In my experience that desire originates from the person, and we know that person isn’t real, so therefore no need to act on the desire. This, and your last post, seem to indicate quite an alienated state. Although I hope i am wrong in thi...

Re: I need help

Hello Nessie,

For there to be inquiry there doesn't need to be a person doing it!

Carve out a free hour, make yourself a coffee and read our conversation from start to finish.

Read slowly.

Then get back to me with how you are and what is happenning for you.

Regards,

Michael

Re: I need help

Hi Nessie,

I hope you are well. Sorry for the delay.

So where is your inquiry taking you now?

If you are drifting re-read our conversation and see what it sparks.

Re: I need help

Hi Nessie,

So what do you think is happenning?

Have you arrived at an intelectual understanding of no-self (or at least how the 'self' is constructed)?

Or do you feel there has been any 'seeing' of this? Any kind of shift?

Warm regards,

Michael

Re: I need help

Hi Nessie, Great post! So is a fictitious character created by empty thought a person? (Remember a thought about an elephant is NOT an elephant!). Does a separate self exist? Does a rock, tree, bird, mammal, or human, possess a separate self or is there just life as one movement? Is any part of life...

Re: I need help

Hi Nessie, Seeing people acting out their own stories, or catching myself doing it, knowing that it’s just a story. Yes,It is just a story. But is there a person acting it out? Or is it just life expressing itself in the moment, like a tree bending in the wind, or a bird squaking because another bir...

Re: I need help

Hiya,

Yes, it was good to hasve a break from computers and I have now got a lot more free time coming up :-)

Life seems to be have become more amusing and entertaining. It’s funny when I catch Nessie or others taking things so seriously.

Please share more about this new perspective.

Michael
