Re: The truth doesn't need my belief to exist

It is good that you take your time.

In case you get stuck or feel stuck we can walk through the exercise together.

Re: A Feast of Lanterns

It’s my experience - at least at the moment - that mind is not found in experience. It’s what creates it. Makes it possible. I can’t find teeth in what I eat, but I know they make eating possible... they are an agent if you like. There is a difference between knowing, as in experiential knowing or ...

Re: A Feast of Lanterns

Remember, we started here. We work with direct looking (DE, sometimes calles actual experience, too). Only that is considered real which can be experienced directly. If you stop right now and have a look at everything you can experience, can you experience something different than colour/shape (seei...

Re: The truth doesn't need my belief to exist

I’ve been trying to crack a code, but now I will look. No code to crack, actually all you need to do is look and that as often as you can. Can you please explore this a little? There are a lot of beliefs what self is, what it does. These are the most common: 1. Identification with something or thin...

Re: A Feast of Lanterns

Ok.
How does will appear? In what way is it known?
And what makes it different than a thought about something else?

Re: The truth doesn't need my belief to exist

No need to be grateful, please. There is no separation, none at all. Who helps you? I am realising that self is not to be realised or destroyed. Just observed for what it really is, or isn't, using direct looking. Every moment (including this one) is a chance to see. There is nothing to destroy, how...

Re: A Feast of Lanterns

That I am... where do we start? Fine. Lets start with something we have to agree on, which will help us a lot while walking on. We work with direct looking (DE, sometimes calles actual experience, too). Only that is considered real which can be experienced directly. If you stop right now and have a...

Re: The truth doesn't need my belief to exist

It was your last sentence which threw me off a bit - so thanks for what you wrote. I know you give your very best.

So what thoughts come up with what I wrote in the last post?

Re: A Feast of Lanterns

Hi Locutus, I am Jadzia, and if you like we can walk part of the path together and enjoy investigating what this self is and what it isn't. Over the years I've experienced many different experiences - during meditation but also just standing in the street - that have the flavour of this realisation....

Re: The truth doesn't need my belief to exist

I have let go of many painful attachments & this has given me an unbelievable sense of freedom. A 6 year journey that was painful beyond belief, but has delivered many wonderful inner fruits that I could never have imagined. I am so grateful. My life & flow is now wonderful, it has been for a year ...

Re: Clear Looking

Hi Matt01,

I am Jadzia and if you like we can have a look at that what you might have missed or what didn't sink in.
I can see that "I" is a thought.
Could you elaborate on that. Write as much as you like.

Love

Re: The truth doesn't need my belief to exist

Just because the self is elusive, it doesn’t prove that it doesn’t exist to me It isn't. We were talking about labels, how everything is named. So it is to see what is there which is labeld I and me, my, mine. Just this. My body, my thoughts, my....... Me doing this.... . I the son brother mother e...

Re: The truth doesn't need my belief to exist

Yes, just touch and as you might have already guessed, touch is a lable too, but somehow and with some words we have to do this investigation. ;-)
So whatever seems to happen or appear is labeled in no time.

Now go and check what the label self corresponds to.
Keep it as simple.

Re: The truth doesn't need my belief to exist

There is pressure
There is warmth
Can pressure or warmth be felt in DE?

Remember we try to find what is experience - can be experienced - and what is added.

Re: The truth doesn't need my belief to exist

There is fear of failure in me that I will run out of time & not get it. This and asking if there is progress or not shows pressure. If you can - drop all pressure. It might sound odd now, but there is nothing to get. It is allright right now, everything is known - it is just like looking fixedly a...
