Re: The Tipping Point

Hi Vivien,

Thank you for all your help so far. Right now I need to take a break for various reasons. Would it be ok to pick uo again when I am ready?

Re: The Tipping Point

Vivien,

I am looking and trying not to think about the questions and somehow I'm not doing it correctly.
Before I move forward with these questions, can you give me any advice or guidance on proper looking so that I don't waste any more of your time?

Thank you,
Sandra

Re: The Tipping Point

So is seeking still going on? Yes. I guess that means I haven’t looked enough or seen what needs to be seen. S: It has not been a permanent shift, but I can go back and look and see that there is nothing here doing the experiencing and that experience is all there is. V:And is there a need or a des...

Re: The Tipping Point

Thanks, Vivien... I'd like to continue a bit longer too, if you're willing.
I'll get back to you once I've looked well enough at the questions you have provided.

With gratitude,
Sandra

Re: The Tipping Point

Hi Vivien, So there is no surprise (or any emotional reaction) to the seeing that what you’ve been believing in your whole life is not true? Oh yes! There were the feelings of giddiness and also relief! Could you please tell a bit more about this shift? Could you please tell when exactly you FELT th...

Re: The Tipping Point

Hi Vivien, And how does it FEEL to see that there is no separate aliveness/awareness having experience? I really can't say it feels any particular way - almost absent of feeling (emotion) about it ...it just is. Somehow it feels pretty matter of fact. However, there is an underlying peace and joy th...

Re: The Tipping Point

Hi Vivien, I hope this finds you well. I am back from my trip and getting re-acclimated to the daily routine here. I have done as you suggested and looked frequently each day to see if there is anything here but experience. There is no separate aliveness/awareness having experience, experience is ju...

Re: The Tipping Point

Hi Vivien, S: But in pure looking, the self shows up as pure nothingness - it's just not there. V:And how does it FEEL to see this? What's noticed is a feeling of stillness, ease, peace and joy. Is it clear that literally there is nothing separate from experience looking at it, or being aware of it,...

Re: The Tipping Point

Dear Vivien, Tell me, how does the self show up right now? Every time I ask the question and look, there's nothing here - the self show's up as nothing and the only thing here is experience. Seeing, hearing, feeling, thinking are all here, but when I look for a self there's literally nothing here. I...

Re: The Tipping Point

Hi Vivien, Of course you can't answer the question :-)... and I appreciate the opportunity to look myself. How does existence differ from experience? I can't see any difference. All there is is experience - sensory perception. Describe existence without describing experience. I can't describe existe...

Re: The Tipping Point

Vivien, S: There is no experiencer. I cannot find one. There is only experience. V: So then what about the aliveness or awareness you said that it’s indisputably there? Is there an awareness or aliveness that knows or aware of experience? I can not explain or defend that prior statement. There is no...

Re: The Tipping Point

Hi Vivien, S: However, I am confused still because it is indisputable that "I" am here, "I" exist.... but is it not an "I" that exists, but rather just existence that exists? And is existence just experience without an experiencer? This is exactly what we are investigating. V:Find the experiencer. W...

Re: The Tipping Point

Hi Vivien, S: Imagination/Fiction is something that is experienced as a thought or belief (which is just a thought). V: Imagination is NEVER experienced as a thought, since thought content never contains experience. Is this clear? If you ask me to imagine riding an unicorn, it appears as an image/th...

Re: The Tipping Point

Hi Vivien, What is the difference between experience and imagination? Experience is known vis the 5 senses. Imagination is just a thought. What is it exactly that we are referring to when we are talking about experience? Experience is what can be known via taste, touch, sight, smell, or heard. These...

Re: The Tipping Point

Dear Vivien, I appreciate your honesty and you pointing out where I am stuck. I also have to share that I am honestly looking and not thinking and intellectualizing most of the time. I am sure there are times that I slip back into that habit, but on the whole I am sincerely looking. What may be happ...
