Re: Releasing the illusion

Dear Vivien— The Questions! Woohoo 🎉 1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? Through investigation there is no separate “self, me, I” to be found— Only thoughts/beliefs of a separate identity are found that dissipate with questioni...

Vivien—
In keeping with our agreements, I (“I”?) am still working on the questions and will get you the response tomorrow.
Thank you!

Re: Releasing the illusion

Vivien— After the last post, some feelings of slight discomfort were noticed while trying to have s a private moment in the midst of my kids wanting my attention for various seemingly endless reasons, and the thought appeared, “This is it! This is it! This is all there is! No self improvement needed...

Re: Releasing the illusion

Vivien, I realize an expectation to not fall under the spell of thoughts of a separate “I” ever again. And what is it exactly that could fall under the spell of thoughts of separate I? Nothing. Thoughts are the expectation—Familiar Thoughts of an illusory non-existent “I” appearing. Is there a perso...

Re: Releasing the illusion

Hello Vivien— How long until the habit of seeing oneself as separate totally dissipates? Let’s look into this. Next time when this seeming separation arise, investigate this: What is it that is seeing itself as separate? A thought of separation— There is just no “what” to be found seeing itself as s...

Re: Releasing the illusion

Dear Vivien, Is there anything that is not super clear and you would like to look at? How long until the habit of seeing oneself as separate totally dissipates? It still creeps up sometimes until investigated— If more questions arise later is there a way to contact you if that’s ok? (There are quest...

Re: Releasing the illusion

Dear Vivien— Hello 😊 So? Is there an experiencer outside of experience, looking in, and experiencing what is happening? Or there is only experience? No outside “experiencer” is found—only experience. Please go to the fridge and take out some food or drink. Watch like a hawk. How is a decision is mad...

Re: Releasing the illusion

Dear Vivien, Getting right to it: Let’s try this out. 1. Place both hands on a table in front of you, palms down. 2. When you have done that, rest for a moment and then raise one hand in the air but not the other. Don't go to thoughts, examine your experience. Do this as many times as you like, and ...

Re: Releasing the illusion

Dearest Vivien, So the anticipated state of love, wisdom, peace, joy didn’t happen? :) There’s actually a lot of sadness and disappointment in this moment. Embarrassment arising sharing that disappointment. There’s an experience of heaviness in this chest/throat area—Thoughts of “Am I doing this rig...

Re: Releasing the illusion

Vivien— Are you saying that it has been experientially, and not just intellectual understood, that there isn’t and was a separate self in any shape or form? Is there any doubt? It’s experiential—with looking there is nothing solid or separate to find— no matter how many times it’s searched for. All ...

Re: Releasing the illusion

Dear Vivien, Thank you for your response — Is Jenny the author of internal commentary? Not only is “Jenny” not the author of internal commentary (& where is “internal” anyway!), there is no separate author, composer, birther, originator of thoughts that can be found. There is noticing though. Not a ...

Re: Releasing the illusion

Dear Vivien— I am so appreciating your time, attention, questions, encouragement. Are thoughts some kind of entities with the ability to do things, like believing? Or thoughts are just passing phenomena? Putting my attention directly on thoughts they evaporate...so not entities with agendas or agenc...

Re: Releasing the illusion

Vivien— Hello— V: Now try preventing a thought from appearing. Is it possible? J: That’s an easy no... But have you checked it in experience, or have you replied from memory? When I answered earlier I took a quick look & jumped out of experience to memory. Upon further investigation there is no prev...

Re: Releasing the illusion

Vivien— Try to create a thought. Any thought, from scratch. What do you find? Create a thought— hm— That is different than setting an intention— i can’t make/create a thought — there are lots of associations that pop up— but that is not creating a thought. Do you notice how thoughts seem to appear, ...
