Re: Confused about self inquiry

Hey Dana, why are you still up? :) I hope you're home for the weekend! I see that many of my actions don’t have anything to do with thoughts that caused them. But when I think “I’m gonna move my hand” and actually MEAN it, with intention, it happens. Even though I see it’s not the actual thought tha...

Re: Newbie

Hi Julie, I'm glad you'd like to keep at it, great choice :) When you finish your yoga session, and lie there in Shavasana, (assuming you don't fall asleep)... Notice how focus goes from sensations of the body, to sounds, to thoughts, shifting all the time. Is Julie controlling the shifting focus? I...

Re: Newbie

Hi Julie, Welcome back at the LU cafeteria 😊 I guess its knowing even in the midst of the being caught in the thoughts? I still get caught, do you think its a case of remembering again and again, in between, rather than a continual knowing you are not your thoughts? The question rather is, are these...

Re: Confused about self inquiry

Hi Dana :) You're asking great questions. I'm going to answer most or all of the questions, but I'd like to refocus the inquiry into fewer topics at a time. Please pause and ask each question, but only answer back the questions in blue. my actions seem to be influenced by thoughts but what actually ...

Re: Confused about self inquiry

Hi Dana, OK, I'll be waiting for the rest. To answer your question: R: Try it, look at a glass of water for example, tags/thought will come up, but just ask yourself "what is this wonder?" and look for the answer... is there a Dana looking? or is there just what is seen? D: Did you mean water instea...

Re: Confused about self inquiry

Hi Dana, For future reference, please try to quote each question and reply to it, it will make the reading easier.  If you're using a phone or tablet it could be cumbersome, I know, there is an app you can try which is LU-aware (aware... wow!) https://www.tapatalk.com It seems that “I” don’t do anyt...

Re: Confused about self inquiry

Hi Dana, I sent you a PM - please check the upper right corner where your user name is. And yet when I tasted and bit into the orange it was much more real than the thought. I can’t describe it differently than how I described the thoughts because as we already said, words can’t capture the actual e...

Re: Confused about self inquiry

Hey Dana, What I described to you previously, was that also looking? I mean, when I’m watching the thoughts and not actively thinking? Noticing thoughts is looking at direct experience, but the contents of thought is not DE. Why? The thought appears now, but the content is usually not about what occ...

Re: Confused about self inquiry

Hi Dana, I saw your answer and since I'm not working today, I will answer sooner (but you can reply in your tomorrow if you like). One administrative note - sometimes you can lose your typed text (e.g. if you go back in your browser), to avoid frustration, I'd recommend to either type the text elsew...

Re: Confused about self inquiry

Hi Dana, I'll start with your question so that we can focus after that. Do you think a person needs to be “ready” in order to realize there is no separate self? If yes, in what way? What about relative mental quietness? I'll give you my very personal take. The vast majority of people don't even try,...

Re: Newbie

Hi Julie, Sorry to hear that, yes this system has it's faults, I think most experienced something similar at some point. I can recommend two things for the future: 1. copy your text often and paste in some text processor for safe keeping 2. write your reply in the text processor, and only paste/edit...

Re: Confused about self inquiry

Sure, not a problem, I would usually answer when you're already asleep, so you'll have the whole day. Works perfect.
