Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona Sounds like you are shifting on a lot of aspects— it’s happening as it should be happening. Yes, lot of shifting around. Feeling very much up in the air! Now this is a shocker! I am a master at making self defeating decisions! This is your hand-break. Do you want to continue living life wit...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona Thank you for sitting down and writing all this out. You can see the mechanisms and how they function to protect from trauma. Yes there is holding on to the idea of being a chooser to feel more secure. Yes. Thank you for the acknowledgement. Let’s look right there. You are here right this m...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona Very frustrated and irritated today! where is this self from which thoughts come? :) The source of thoughts is unfindable. Where is the source of emotions about a self? Seems to come from the body but also basically unfindable. Does story about Santa come from Santa? Then where is that Sant...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona What I’m saying there is no chooser. There is a choosing, but no chooser. Just like there is breathing , but no breather. There is voluntary moving, acting, as in opposition to involuntary, but that does not mean there is a mover. Thank you for that clarification! The subject is part of lan...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona Notice breathing. It’s here all the time and while you sleep too. So becoming conscious of breathing do you choose to breathe? No I do not choose to breathe. But as I said in my last post: bodily functions and perceptions are involuntary, I have no choice in the matter. Unless I choose to e...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona The real question is “Is there a thinker at all?” “Is there I at all”? This is the real question! Yep, agreed! No definitive answer at this time. What is the answer that you get? Is there I in charge of own separate piece of life? Ok logically I can see that there is not a separate I in cha...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona The real question is “Is there a thinker at all?” “Is there I at all”? This is the real question! Yep, agreed! No definitive answer at this time. Is there a need for a thinker for thoughts to arise? Definitely have belief that thoughts come from somewhere, even though in actual experience t...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona Look closer, you already see that a thought can not think. Is I a thought or a thinker? I is a thought that refers to a thinker but it is not known exactly what this thinker is. Or where it is. The thoughts appear to refer to a me/I but what it is not known what that me/I is. Sometimes the ...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona Have a look, what happens, when you ask this question: Is there a thinker? When I ask this question there is a thought that says "I am the thinker". Not sure what the subject in this thought is. Don't know if the I thought points to a "me" or if the I thought points to a mind. Or maybe it p...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona Can a thought think? No a thought can not think. The thought is a creation, not the creator. There are thoughts that say something about "I" and there are thoughts that say something about "mind". The thoughts say that they come from "me" or from "my mind" but where are they really coming f...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona Thank you! Let’s look closer at the mind. What is mind in experience? How does it work? Where is it? Looking at mind. Thoughts, memories, images, understandings, meanings, language, planning.... But no "mind" as a thing can be found. No location. Mind is just space where imaginary things sh...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona (This post is kind of confused on my part. Keep trying to edit it into something coherent but maybe it was fine as it was.. Decided to post it anyway, maybe you might have some pointers) At this stage all is normal, all as it should be. The mind has already recognised the emptiness of I as ...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona (Wrote this last night. It's fairly long and stream of consciousness but I think it will give you a better picture of what's going on. Thank you!) Have been very depressed the past couple of days. Feeling like the walking dead. Emotional zombie. The body is holding a lot of tension. Whole b...

Re: Freedom Now

Hi Ilona The illusion of self has been seen through in the past few days. The I-me-self is completely imaginary. Always was. Always is. No owner of the body, no owner of experiences. No inner entity riding around inside the body. Nothing like that at all. A make believe thing the mind created. Initi...

Re: Freedom Now

Hello Ilona This last post really hit home. You really hit the nail on the head as the saying goes. Yes, have been looking for a better experience all along, that's true. It's a big motivator! I don't know how to stop it and I don't want to get into fighting it. Will try to shift focus to just seein...
