Re: Overcoming Doubt

Hi Don, So, it’s like: here’s the present moment (sort of) - there’s a kind of quiet and stillness here. And within that stillness there’s … either there’s just a hum or a sensation in my head that I’m calling confusion - or there’s a barrage of thoughts going at break-neck speed - and I can’t reall...

Re: Overcoming Doubt

Hi dear Don, thank you for sharing with me. Feel so touched by your honesty. MY doing is the narrative. At least, the narrative is about ME. It seems to be about me. It feels like it’s about me. Yes, the narrative is about "Don" But Is it really something which Don is doing? If yes - is it possible ...

Re: Overcoming Doubt

Hi dear Don, I read all three replays from you. And I feel really touched by your sharings. I notice that there is a lot of effort. Effort for watching thoughts, staying present... Doing a lot of things, yes all connected to that, still a lot. This also brings confusion. Let's sit and relax together...

Re: Overcoming Doubt

Hi Don, what a deep investigation and revelation. I am with you. And yet it’s extremely hard for me to stay there. I feel it. The peace. But there is thought energy, distraction, and so on. The me (that I can’t find) seems essential to believe in. The thoughts (that have no basis and that are clearl...

Re: Overcoming Doubt

Hi dear Don I read your replays and I can feel what is your experience. I hear you. This is just a nightmare. Needing to push things harder is part of the nightmare. Let's meet this: I feel like I am bypassing real life by being interested in non-duality, that I should just get a grip on my career a...

Re: Seeing the illusion of self

Hi Fritz I think that's a good way to put it. The feeling says "I'm a self". We are looking that here is nothing personal but only What is, right? So what is the evidence that this feeling is a persona but not what is? is there something which is not here effortlessly? Notice the idea that there is ...

Re: Overcoming Doubt

Hi Don, I hear you. So good to feel the openness and willingness to share. I notice a very strong thought tendency recently. It’s not like it’s new, it’s just that it’s noticeable now. The thought asks: What can I look forward to that will make me happy? When can I look forward to when I can relax? ...

Re: Overcoming Doubt

Hi Don, so lovely seeing you yesterday. I felt openness and relaxation expressed. Thank you for sharing your experience day by day. I'm glad that you find that helpful. I read everything and reflect with you. I’m sitting and there aren’t very many thoughts. It’s possible that there are no thoughts f...

Re: What is really true?

Hi dear Tommy, Hug this part which is afraid. Stay with it. Ask this part: What you are afrade from? and do the list, send me everything which this part is afraide from. I am sensing something is shifting in the body but don´t know what it is. A mix of lightness/pressure/disorientation. I don´t know...

Re: Overcoming Doubt

Hi Don, I admire your willingness to look so much! Let's look together here: I’ve been trying to sit with it. I’m telling myself that it’s just about sitting and noticing what’s here, being present. There can’t be anything more to it than that. There’s a lot of resistance to sitting here, though. It...

Re: Overcoming Doubt

Hi Don, I got through the night but this morning there was intense fear / anxiety in my body. I sat with it for a few minutes at a time and treated it as much as possible as sensation. Right now my body is jangling all the way though, including down through my arms and legs. It feels like intense fe...

Re: Overcoming Doubt

Hi Don, let's start from the end And still the feeling of me is confined within the larger sense of I am awareness, the presence. And there is a contradiction between the two and yet they both persist, seemingly at the same time. YES, the cntradiction is so so so on point. Notice right now in this v...

Re: Seeing the illusion of self

Hi Fritz, I am with you. Notice that you want to find that you are something much bigger and that there is no persona and never was. That there is nothing wich belong to the persona. Sit for a while. Let the sistem calm. without relating to thoughts (they will never get it) "LOOK" what really is her...

Re: What is really true?

Hi dear Tommi, It starts to be seen that there is only a "screen" for the visual field together with sounds, sensations, smells, tastes and thoughts. A virtual reality (like a hologram) without anyone in it... In that case everything is just empty of subject/object. Is this correct? Mind cannot get ...
