Re: Guide Request

Hi Vivien, I’m glad to hear that you feel there is some improvement. Just take it slowly, gently and lovingly. You don’t have to force anything. This has been helpful. I've taken time off work and of all appointments in my life over the last week. And am only slowly introducing things in, one-by-one...

Re: Guide Request

Hi Vivien, Thank you for the reply. I am sorry for attempting to close the process, which I again did out of fear. I actually do want to continue the process. One of the reasons I am especially afraid to write to you is because I fear that my words become a self-fulfilling prophecy. As if whatever I...

Re: Guide Request

Hi Vivien, Out of fear I did not answer the last questions (although I have looked with them). You cannot find the feeler, or there is literally no feeler of emotions? There is literally no feeler of emotions. So what do these wounds and hurts belong TO? What is owning them? These wounds and hurts b...

Re: Guide Request

Hi Vivien,

Thanks for the reply. At this moment though, I want to stop the looking process. It does not take me anywhere, and only causes anxiety. I see no need for it. So I thank you again for all your time, and wish you all the best.

Tom

Re: Guide Request

Hi Viven, What is it that feels this emotion? Where is the feeler? What does this emotion or story belong TO? I cannot find what it is that feels this emotion, nor the feeler. I also cannot find the emotion or the story it belongs to. Is this sensation (in the chest) the one that is feeling this emo...

Re: Guide Request

Hi Vivien, The last days have been very challenging emotionally, and especially the last two or so I couldn't seem to remember or use the pointers. I actually suddenly restarted using a mental noting technique I learned a decade ago, which is about lightly noting objects that come up in awareness (e...

Re: Guide Request

Hi Vivien, Good. I have run through this exercise from start to finish many times throughout the day. Are you aware right now? Please check it, if you can say with certainty you are aware. Yes, I am, with absolute certainty, aware. Now, focus on the sensations that seem to be me, and investigate: Is...

Re: Guide Request

Hi Vivien, Previously I asked this: V: WHERE ARE YOU? T: Whenever I ask this, I am immediately brought to sensations, especially the sensation of touch. Is this still how it is? Yes, it is exactly the same now: when I ask 'where am I', my attention immediately goes to sensations in the body. If anyt...

Re: Guide Request

Hi Vivien, And can you find looking or seeing itself? Or all that can be found is what is seen (colors, shapes)? I cannot find looking or seeing itself. There is a kind of block when I ask this question, as if it is an impossibility. All that can be found is the colors and shapes that can be seen. L...

Re: Guide Request

Hi Vivien, Is there an actual FEELING of looking through the eyes? Are you sure about this? No, there is not a feeling of looking through the eyes. I can see that it is only a concept (for example if I look closely I sometimes see an image thought about 'looking through the eyes'). What is the exper...

Re: Guide Request

Hi Vivien, Are you sure that sensations are always present? No, I am not sure that sensations are always present. It appears as if there is always either one sensation or one thought present. But I am not certain about that (see answer to the third question). Do you always aware of the sensations of...

Re: Guide Request

Hi Vivien, OK. Looking what Tom is or isn’t, isn’t simply comes from not finding him. Since if you cannot find him, it doesn’t necessarily translate into the realization of there being no real Tom. So it’s not just about not finding him, but it also seeing clearly that HOW he shows up. So Tom can ac...

Re: Guide Request

Hi Vivien, It seems that you still have a reservation that although Tom hasn’t been found but he might be hiding somewhere. Is this so? When you put it that way, I want to say 'no, of course not': I intend to carry on looking until the moment I realise Tom is not actually hiding somewhere. On the ot...
