Re: Looking for guidance - am tired of the cycle of becoming

It's fine to do it more than over if you want to do that, but it's not necessary

Re: Looking for guidance - am tired of the cycle of becoming

Hi Alex Interesting that you say: not wanting to loose my identity. Also fear of the unknown Shall we explore that further? Particularly the fear. Notice that it's a protective mechanism. If there is no self, then there is nothing that needs to be protected, right? The fear itself is like a door, it...

Re: Looking for guidance - am tired of the cycle of becoming

That should have read: there's some doubt? Resistance? Fear?
Just lightly explore if you can

Re: Looking for guidance - am tired of the cycle of becoming

Hi Alex Lovely to read your answer! Thank -you. I want to believe! it doesn't really involve believing anything, just a willingness to actually look what's there when you really look, without expectations or beliefs (funnily enough!) getting in the way. But you'll find that out for yourself as we go...

Re: Looking for guidance - am tired of the cycle of becoming

Let's begin, then. Some theory to set the scene; There is no such separate entity as self. There is no self at all, no manager, controller, but life flowing freely, all is one reality, one life. Life just IS. It is so simple, that it's most difficult to see. Thinking that we all have a special separ...

Re: Looking for guidance - am tired of the cycle of becoming

But be assured that it is do-able, so long as you whole-heartedly engage.

Re: Looking for guidance - am tired of the cycle of becoming

That all sounds reasonably realistic to me. Three usual thing is to advise people that it will probably be nothing like they expect, so maybe best that in mind.

Any fears?

Re: Looking for guidance - am tired of the cycle of becoming

Thanks for that. Yes, lots of conceptual stuff there... The great thing about this work is that it involves just looking at your actual direct experience, rather than thinking things through. As you correctly observe, it is all too possible to "know" it intellectually, but REALLY knowing it is a dif...

Re: Looking for guidance - am tired of the cycle of becoming

Hi Seeker, I can guide you if you like. I'm a Buddhist too and your initial post resonated with me. Are you up for posting every day? I find that makes a huge difference to progress in this work. It doesn't have to be long - in fact short and pithy is often better. And of course if our means that yo...
