Re: OK to be OK

Thanks Sioned. Yes, I think we’re in agreement. I won’t be abandoning my search and there are lots of other resources out there. Unfortunately I’m a bit restricted regarding travelling much at the moment – which is one of the reasons LU appealed to me – but that will almost certainly change at some ...

Re: OK to be OK

1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? 2) Explain in detail what the illusion of separate self is, when it starts and how it works from your own experience. Describe it fully as you see it now. 3) How does it feel to see this? Wh...

Re: OK to be OK

Honestly....a bit frustrating. I seem to 'get it' when I'm in the moment but it still feels like 'Lindy is doing it' and everything feels just the same after - as it did just before the exercise/s - and it's quickly forgotten. I've done exercises similar to these in the past and my experience has be...

Re: OK to be OK

Notice that everything is part of one movement. Then close your eyes and see if there is a line between you and out there, between you and life itself. If yes, where is the boundary? Is there an inside and an outside of Life? Is there something which is not included in the movement of the whole? Is...

Re: OK to be OK

There must be an experiencer
is a thought, not a direct experience. do you see that?

Try repeating the exercise, and JUST staying in direct experience - thoughts may happen, but that's not what's being looked for here
Yes, I see that, until there's a thought, there's only the sound. X

Re: OK to be OK

Again focus on the experience of the tick tock sound. Set aside all thought, images, ideas or theories about what must be going on. Attune to the sounds themselves. Going by hearing alone, do you directly experience a sound apart from your sense of hearing? Do you experience a sound getting closer ...

Re: OK to be OK

I've just given this a go but once again a bit short of time to do it justice, so will do again tomorrow afternoon when less in a rush. X

Re: OK to be OK

1. Going just by the tick tock sound, do you find a clock present? 2. Is there any direct/actual experience of a clock in the sound? 3. Does the sound come self-labelled as originating from the clock? 4. Do you find a clock hidden in the sound? 5. Do you find a clock beyond the sound? 6. In your di...

Re: OK to be OK

Lie on your back and relax. Have a look at the ceiling. There is thought to be a distance between that what is thought to be known as ‘body’ and that what is labelled ‘ceiling’. Close your eyes. Now focus on the space between body and ceiling. Take your time, breathe in and out and simply look. Kee...

Re: OK to be OK

Hi Sioned Think the exams went OK thanks - relieved they're over! I don't really think my expectations have changed much - if at all - since we last talked about them. Of course I can't help having some, as well as hoping that I'll be able to drop some of the illusions and beliefs that seem to keep ...

Re: OK to be OK

Really look at a chair. What exactly gives that object it's 'chairness'? Imagine back when that chair was being made. When exactly did the components become 'chair' Think and picture in your mind all the infinite different sorts of chairs. Really make it vivid. What makes them all 'chairs'? - Then ...

Re: OK to be OK

A bit up and down but better than a few days ago thanks. Busy revising for my first lot of exams that are tomorrow and Tuesday, so not easy focus on much else at the moment. However, just done the exercise with a cup of coffee (love a good coffee, so hope that's OK) - and I did do this or something ...

Re: OK to be OK

Not sure I really understood the instructions but when the apple and canary were gone, there was no 'me' or anything left in the head!! All a bit odd....! Please tell me if I missed the point and I'll try again! X
