Re: Truth and Freedom

Dear Ilona, Thank you so, so much for all of your time and wisdom. I really don't seem to have anything to write to you now. No questions. I'm enjoying living again and watching life as it unfolds. Your latest video 'What next?' has been enormously helpful. Making a list of my shoulds and should not...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Hi Ilona, Once again I apologize for the late reply. It has seemed harder and harder to respond to your questions lately, and I've been wondering why that is... I think it's partly that the need to seek for answers has really lost its intensity. I have learnt and recognised so many things and think ...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Hi Ilona, It's felt like a huge effort to write this response. Since 'deciding' to stop thinking about decisions until a decision needs to be made, life has appeared to be so much easier! So called 'negative' feelings about my marriage have come up, but much less frequently, and following your advic...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Hi Ilona, This week, contemplating your questions about problems, I've had a major realisation. A breakthrough. (I think, haha) I've realised that all problems are created in the mind. The more I look into a problem, the more complicated it gets. The clearer this has become over the week, the less i...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Hi Ilona, Sorry for the late reply. That’s good to notice, mind want to protect.. now let’s find out, is it helping? No it's not helping. It actually creates more fear, unease, unhappiness, withdrawal. What does the mind get from trying to protect? The mind gets a lot of attention when it's trying t...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Hi Ilona, When I am in the prison of the mind I withdraw from people and life. I guess in a twisted way it keeps me safe from being hurt, used, abused, embarrassed, shame etc. I can see that the mind is built on old, untrue beliefs, such as - "I'm not ok as I am"; "I need to adapt to please people";...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Thanks Ilona, You mention in one of your videos a quote from Rumi comparing the mind to a prison. I can definitely relate to that. I can also see that I've been living in that prison for many, many years. It's like a living hell. That may sound extreme, but the critical, negative, horrendous self-ta...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Hi Ilona, The last few days it's felt like I've fallen into a black hole. All the negative thinking and feelings about myself and my life has returned with avengence. It feels like it is attempting to annihilate me. Unfortunately I've felt powerless to resist. A very tiny voice has said 'perhaps you...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Hi Ilona, Thanks for your response. You're absolutely right. Even thoughts about past or future are happening in the present. There is only ever the present. It seems that you are the main character. But let’s look at the main character. Where is it? How is it showing up? What is the main character ...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Hi Ilona, Sorry it's taken a while to respond. Every time I start pondering these questions I get distracted. I can not seem to focus on them for more than two minutes at a time. I've also realised that whenever I've thought about them I get lost in thinking about how best to word my response to the...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Hi Ilona,

Sorry it's taken me a while to reply. I still need an extra day to write my response. Hopefully I'll get it to you by the end of the day.

With love x

Re: Truth and Freedom

Excellent answer Ilona. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! Yes it's definitely time to stop trying to work everything out. Driving myself crazy, mind loving every minute. Well played mind. Yes I can see that a thought can only ever be a fragment of the whole, one angle/aspect. You can never cover ever...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Hi Ilona, The last few days I've experienced strong resistance - distraction, boredom, doubt, fear, confusion, frustration. My perspective seems to be constantly changing. I can go from experiencing peace and contentment to negative emotions in the blink of an eye. Every time I think that I need to ...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Hi Ilona, Hope you're well. Well I've had plenty of time to explore my connection to the body. I've written these notes over a few days so they may sound a bit disjointed. I've explored the sensations of 'the body'. Realised that the sensations don't have an outline. They just spread out endlessly. ...

Re: Truth and Freedom

Hi Ilona, Thanks for your reply and for the link to your videos. I watched 'mind movies' a couple of weeks ago and loved it, but hadn't looked at the 'sense of being' series before now. I've now watched them all through once and am really excited about them. You've got such a lovely energy and a gre...
