Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, I appreciate the rigor here... "The illusory ego was formed, believing it had to survive and that it was alone and separate. As the complexity of this illusion grew - the ego felt more and more isolated. It began to seek answers" Is the ego the seeker? Who found the answers? Better said, a...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, Thank you for these final questions, but to be honest it feels more like a beginning :). 1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? No, there was never an individual - consciousness merely believed it was what it thought. Th...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, Of course and wow thanks for your patience. It is true what is said, it's so simple. Gratitude is arising for the clarity that has come (and that was never not there), now vigilant and rigorous use of attention towards this must be predominant over all other things - this is clearly seen a...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, Is there a you seeing or is there only seeing ? Is there a you hearing or is there only hearing ? is there a you thinking or is there only thinking ? Is there a you walking or is there only walking ? It is clearly experienced that: Seeing happens, by itself - there is no doer of seeing. I ...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, I again apologize for the delay here. Lots of integration going on. Is there sensation of the body as a whole or a bundle of sensations ? When eyes are closed, does a body have limits outside of thoughts ? When eyes are closed, does a body have a shape outside of thoughts ? The body is fel...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, I appreciate the reflection and have been doing it. Close your eyes and tell me what is the body. Describe what is happening. Let you go for five minutes or more. As I explore the sensation of the body, initially there is a sense of density at the center of my awareness with space all arou...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, My apologies for the hiatus, I am fine. There has been the experience of feeling almost depressed over the past few weeks. It's not constant and I share more below. The one which sees clearly (that is awareness) don’t believe anything. “believing I am an individual person” is a thought. Yo...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, First, thank you for Rupert's video. I can see where I am confused. It is clear that my fundamental nature is awareness. Without awareness I would not exist. I am that. Where I see the struggle is in moving beyond the concept that this experience is limited by embodiment. I recognize that ...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, You say: David, I feel that you are confused. You are still going to thoughts and give long answers. You are seeking truth in the mind. This is true, it is confusing. While I can rest in direct experience, there is a habit of still going to the mind for answers. I have had experiences of t...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, I appreciate your response. Have you seen really an observer watching experience ? or is it just a thought about an observer? I took some time to consider this and realized the observer is mind or just a thought. The observer is the one who inquires but I recognize this sense of observing ...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, Thank you and let me respond to your questions Can you speak about the changes which have occurred from the moment you came in this forum and now? The dialogue has been very helpful. I am clearer who I am and who I am not. I have had more moments of relaxing as I am - awareness. I have had...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

There is no one to realize anything, there is only what is going on here now. Is there any spell to break ? Warissem, I do understand that there is no one to break free, David does not ultimately exist, etc. And yes this thought "the spell must break" is just that, it is something to challenge. The...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, Thanks again for your support. You ask: Is the body contained within something that is felt, seen, heard, tasted, smelled ? No, as I looked, both the body and the senses are contained within awareness or the 'aliveness' you also mention. The senses appear to be portals of experience that s...

Re: Ready To See Clearly and Rest As I Am

Warissem, There is a thought "I", does it point to an object or whatever? If so, describe what it is pointing to, like you do for a chair. Take your time to look to this "I". Don't go to thoughts. I have taken a few days to examine your question. In short, I cannot find an "I" other than in thoughts...
