Re: No self

Hi Juliana, Amazing, I am wondering if any further guidance is needed. Do you feel there is anywhere a self is left hiding? I wonder about choice and agency, and whether it might be worth exploring that? Just in case, try this: 1. Place both hands on a table in front of you, palms down. 2. When you ...

Re: No self

Hi Juliana, Wow, nice, it all sounds very clear! Did the exercise bring about any change in your experience? You mentioned earlier about how the sense of body and separation were an obstruction, so I wondered if doing the exercise has changed this at all. I also just need to check you are answering ...

Re: No self

Hi Juliana, Great looking! When focusing on DE I cannot find any watcher, doer, or be-er. Watcher, doer or be-er are added/constructed by thinking. Raw experience is just watching, doing, or being. There is just watching and then thought comes that "I am watching." Exactly. Do you experience any sen...

Re: No self

Hi Juliana, When I focus only on experience without any "add on" then life is whatever it is in the moment. Just being, breathing, watching, hearing, etc. I really enjoy it. I am glad you enjoy this experience of DE, it helps so much to have a carrot as well as the stick of suffering. My question ab...

Re: No self

Hi Juliana, Ok great so there are some clues to go on :) In this enquiry it is so important to be really clear about what is constructed, added, or thought into our experience, and what is actual raw direct experience (DE) This is because in DE, no such thing or entity 'self' can be found, whereas i...

Re: No self

Hi Juliana, You are very welcome and thank you for your answers, I appreciate the honesty :) Freedom. I feel trapped. Enslaved by illusion. I am caught in the story and can't get out. Life is sucking me into the story, and I do not like it. So perhaps we could begin by finding out what is trapping y...

Re: No self

Hi Juliana, If you are still looking for a guide I will be happy to help - I have some experience of Dzogchen so I was drawn to your thread. If you are happy to have me as a guide there are a few bits of housekeeping first:) At LU we are described as guides - not teachers - as our role is to directl...

Re: Not playing game of thrones

Hi, Thanks for your answers :) I am quite tired so I hope this makes sense tonight! the solidity of an agent “I” locked back into place right away. This was followed by a frustration in body and thought. I’m not getting it. However, the “I” as volitional agent rushed in as solidly as before in writi...

Re: Not playing game of thrones

Hi Runo12, I get the feeling you aren't really able to give this much time - Its ok if you are busy I understand, but at the same time this enquiry is quite a serious undertaking and does need effort and focus if you are to be successful. What happens when self manifests: ugh 😑 honestly, it’s hard t...

Re: Not playing game of thrones

Thank you! Hope you have a good day too :) Ok, so I hear you, that you noticed times of selfing and times that were free of it - so now, what is it? What happens when it is there or not there? Where is that self located? What does it consist of? To do this enquiry we are looking and seeing that ther...

Re: Not playing game of thrones

Yes, you know how to do this! How to look into the body, into sensing, into experience. So try to apply that to looking into the sense of self, the sense of 'I,' the sense of 'me.' What is that self, in DE? Can you find an inherent self anywhere, outside of thought? It also sounds like you are quite...

Re: Not playing game of thrones

Hi Runo, In this enquiry the main thing to get hold of is that it is about direct experience (DE) rather than concepts and thoughts. Where does the self exist in your actual experience? To clarify what I am pointing to try this: Sit quietly and relax, take your time just looking at what is in front ...

Re: Not playing game of thrones

Hi, You're welcome, and thank you for your responses, all seems reasonable. We ask this because often expectations can get in the way :) No self means to me both the ultimate nature of reality as empty, radiant, free of form, full of love, as well as the pathway towards living this reality. And even...
