Re: Clearer seeing

Hi Yegor, That is where fear comes in, because my plans, and my life and my lifestyle are parts of this experiencing structure. And if the structure comes apart so will do everything else. Thank you for sharing this with me. It’s important because fear can be a hindrance of going further. But actual...

Re: It feels like it's time

Hi Russell. thanks for the honest reply. Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you - work is very heavy at the moment and so it's harder to make the time where I can reply properly. It's ok. The most important is to not stop looking. I want to come straight to this. It makes me feel a little stuck...

Re: Calvin's journey to liberation

Hi Calvin, You did a very good looking. You are making an imence efort for something which is here already :) True, but I have to see this for myself :-). Yes, It it seen when it is seen :-) And it isn't obvious until it is. It can seem like there is witnessing (as a thought), but actually it's all ...

Re: Clearer seeing

Hi Yegor, Thanks for answering the questions regarding expectatons. It’s important to look at your expectation , because every expectation is in a way of seeing what is here, right now. It's quite common that very easy one can miss the obvious because is expecting something to happen, to change, to ...

Re: Calvin's journey to liberation

Hi Calvin, You are making an imence efort for something which is here already :) Is there a belief that seeing through the illusion of a separate self is a very hard work? You are in the room and you are doing a lot of work to find it. Just stop seeking and here it is. Is there seeing and seen? Or t...

Re: Calvin's journey to liberation

Hi Calvin, Nice work! What words non-dual and not two point to? Only one, whole, no separation. Exactly! Excellent! What did Buddha point to with "In the seen there is only the seen"? Seeing is happening, without a seer. Is there seeing and seen? Or they are one and the same? Is it possible that som...

Re: It feels like it's time

Hi Russell, Yes. Absolutely yes. The common (for me, anyway) version of 'knowing' is getting thoughts to align in the correct order/orientation to understand (which, thinking about it, I guess means maintaining a logical consistency) and that forms something that is 'known'. All right, this is the m...

Re: It feels like it's time

Wow Russell, Thanks for this deep investigation. The more you try to stop existing, the more you are being created. Whatever you do, you are being created. I cannot make anything cease, because I AM AN ACTION. I AM AN ACTION. NOT AN OBJECT. What if there is just action, no I who IS an action, just a...

Re: It feels like it's time

Hi Russell Nice. "There is just this" can point to two things. It can point to what is actually arising. Or - and more commonly - it pretends that's what it is doing while also creating an imaginary space (a sky) within which it is happening. I suppose that's also what it is saying that the "I" is '...

Re: It feels like it's time

Hi Russell The sky would be an empty black void – a nothing. Except for when there were clouds. Then the sky would appear to be a something. In this event would we even conceive of sky in the same way, or at all? Or would we just consider there to be clouds, and when there were no clouds, then nothi...

Re: Calvin's journey to liberation

Hi Calvin, Nice work. Let's start from the end: The mind is struggling with this. There is a point of reference from which things are apparently experienced, and people call this Calvin. I suppose this point of reference has no location as such. The point of reference is a mental construction. What ...

Re: It feels like it's time

Hi Russell There's a lot of reluctance to engage today. I found myself last night applying the question of "can a thought think?" to emotions: I say things like "the emotion wants to...", but can an emotion want? Seems the answer is no, the emotion just sits there being what it is, it doesn't think ...

Re: Calvin's journey to liberation

Hi Calvin, But notice what separation is made of? It seems that separation is created by thoughts, and by labelling things. Is this it? Wonderfull! Is there an expectation that thoughts and labeling will stop? There is no you even now and still there are thoughts about a seeming separation. Why seei...
