Re: Hello

Hi, Hannah. Will you even get this message? I abandoned our thread, didn't I? I feel awkward saying this but I don't think that was very respectful of me given what you and Xain have done for me so far. For that I'm sorry. But I wanted to share with you that in the months I've been absent I've not s...

Re: Hello

What me is that that can attach to concepts? Describe in detail to me exactly how that 'attaching' mechanism operates. I mean I can attach sticky note to my desk...plonk, two distinct object, sticky note. desk. there it goes, the glue on the back sticking to the desk. I can feel that attachment. Is...

Re: Hello

Ok, no problem. Go back right now to the current perceptual experience. Sounds, sensations, sights tastes and smells. Find this experiencer in all that. Describe it to me. Find the boundary seperating those two apparent things, the see-er and the sights, the hear-er and the sound, the feel-er and t...

Re: Hello

That's fine, yes, I mean looking now, has there ever really been an entity in the first place? I don't know... I can only look at now. If this has really been seen that's great! Can you see how the illusion of 'self' is in large part constructed out of ideas about this 'mind' as you have said. It's...

Re: Hello

BINGO. Forget right or wrong. What would life look like without all that investment into an entity that exists only as an assumption? Just sit with this a while and let the implications sink in. really let them sink in. I don't really know what the implications are. Life would look pretty similar s...

Hi, Hannah. Sorry it's been a couple of days. I'm still here but the last few days have been a little hectic. I'm working on your post now.

Re: Hello

Explore that further, look around and ask of your current experience- in what way doesn't it make sense to say there are really objects ot there referring to a subject 'me' here? The answer will not be conceptual, at least initally. Just be open and relaxed and see what happens (which may be nothin...

Re: Hello

Language is structured, at least english sentances, to require a subject (i, you, it), and action (verb) relating that subject to an object (noun) Is that structure an absolute truth expressing how things are, or a convention? It of course is at least a convention. If you ask if that expresses how ...

Re: Hello

You tell me. Are thoughts still saying a lot of things about I/me? Is an I/me beign experienced right now? Thoughts are still saying a lot about a me, yes. The second question is harder. Thoughts say that a me is being experienced right now, yes. But the idea that the experience could be different ...

Re: Hello

Language operated in dualistic terms. Self/no self. me/not me light/dark up/down So tell me what you understand by the term 'non duality'. I don't really understand what you're saying in the first part, but as for the question, I understand nonduality to mean that there is no distinction between me...

Re: Hello

Why does this have to be concluded? Surely something can only be 'not me' in opposition to a 'me'. That's how language works. This isn't about replacing one conclusion with another conclusion (insert 'belief' for conclusions) In fact it's worth considering very carefully where the conclusion 'every...

Re: Hello

Let's try and narrow down a bit this 'I' that needs protecting from pain. Is it thoughts? Does it make sense that thoughts need protecting from pain? Is it the body? Is the body this 'I'? Is it something else? "I need protecting form pain" ... it's just another way of saying, this pain here needs t...

Re: Hello

2) I don't know if there is a boundary. There is 'me', and there is stuff which is 'not me', which would seem to necessitate a boundary somewhere. Yet this boundary isn't something I ever think about nor is it something which, when thought about, is readily available to inspect. A little more on th...

Re: Hello

This may read as a problem but actually I am really excited to hear you talk like this. This is the bit all those lovely awakening stories don't talk about so much. this is SUCH a common way things unfold, honestly. It has here. It's almost like all those ways of dealing with life that involved bel...
