Re: Knowing what I see

Great question! Hmm, maybe something like this... For most of my life, I've lived with the assumption/belief that there is a 'self' that's living my life, controlling things, experiencing things, affected by the world around me. Stopping to look in a new way and ask what's in direct experience, ther...

Re: Knowing what I see

Ah, some clarity today. There's not a 'felt sense of self' that comes and goes, there's simply a 'felt sense' that comes and goes, or more accurately describing experience, a range of different sensations that sometimes come with words or images. The me/self but isn't there, that's just how I've des...

Re: Knowing what I see

Can a “person’ be found anywhere that is “in control or at risk”? No person can be found. Does the sense of self have a location? Does the sense of self have a shape or a size? There's not a location, shape or size. Only an assumption/belief (thought) that fades when I notice it. Does the sense of s...

Re: Knowing what I see

Thanks for the extra questions, I'm enjoying those...

There's an awareness, knowing, no separate self in control of any experiences. Experiences happening, awareness of experiences.

These thoughts and sensations are happening in awareness, not to anyone.

Re: Knowing what I see

Yes, thank you for the extra question, that's useful.

In direct experience, there's concepts, thoughts about the mind and what 'its point of view is', but nothing in reality other than these thoughts.

Life flows in awareness. So simple and so beautiful.

With much gratitude for your guidance x

Re: Knowing what I see

1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? There is no 'I' 'me' 'mine' 'self' in direct experience. There never was, only thoughts, an idea about a 'self' that isnt anywhere to be found in experience. There is nothing controlling what...

Re: Knowing what I see

Looking happens, part of the flow of experience.

There's no trying, no looking, no I doing any of this, just experiences and awareness.

Re: Knowing what I see

There's no separation. There's awareness and experience riding and falling away in awareness. The waves are the ocean.

Re: Knowing what I see

There's thinking in direct experience, lots of thinking, and connected sensations, resistance.

There's no doer when I look at direct experience! Of course! Even in this experience is happening in awareness, and thoughts about it, that's all.

Re: Knowing what I see

There is no point in direct experience where the body ends and the chair starts - only sensations in awareness. This last day there's a shift - in direct experience there's always just sensations and thoughts, no 'wanting to change' - it comes back often but each time theres that. It feels like desi...

Re: Knowing what I see

Hmm. There's a concept/belief 'i have a body', but in direct experience there is seeing, hearing, sensations, taste - experiences associated with 'my body'. Recently in yoga with eyes closed in movement there were just sensations with space all around, without the concept of body, at least briefly, ...
