Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien,

thank you. I'm continuing with trying to recognize and catch thoughts as they are appearing and that seems improving. I feel that will help me to see.

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien, Most of the time you are not really looking. You are only write down your thoughts. I really don't know what to look for then. For example help me with this question: If there is no entity with a need, then why would future need to be changed? What for? And more importantly, for who? And ...

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien, If there is no entity with a need, then why would future need to be changed? What for? And more importantly, for who? And this is not an intellectual question. Oh yes, the future is imagined only in thought and then there is a believe in "me" wanting something different to what is now. Th...

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien, I had to take a break for a few days. Accept that anger and frustration. I hope it is OK and we can continue together. What is it here now that is in need of a practice? There is a thought about need of practise with believe this will change something in future. In this moment there is no...

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien, thank you. I'm trying to look every day = practising. There is still "me" and I'd like to stay with the question you suggested before: Is this current thought being thought by someone? By a thinker? Where is this thinker, right now? This seems productive. I'm not able to keep the question...

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien, These are just tools that could help, but not the thing, the realization itself. So make sure that you don’t fall into this trap. Thanks, yes I do realize that. Is this current thought being thought by someone? By a thinker? Where is this thinker, right now? I have quite busy week, but I ...

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien, thanks for checking! How things are going? when the day is not so busy, I'm practicing noticing thoughts. When the day is busy (because of work or family) it's harder. It did not get much better over last few days, but I will keep practicing. Also I'm practicing some concentration meditat...

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien,

I’m continuing and will make it a regular practice.
At this point I have no questions. I know what to do.

Thanks for your guidance and hope you are having a great weekend :),

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien,

Thank you for the link to your blog post. It’s interesting connection of seeking and seeker!

I continued the exercise during the day. I do not have anything new or interesting to write. Was a bit tired today. I will continue tomorrow.

Thanks,
Peter

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien, I continued noticing thoughts as they come. While not always successful in catching thought as it come, I noticed that all that is left is just experiences as they are. I noticed that there is no seeking and no question "what is this". It seems answered. There is calmness and stillness in...

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien, today I tried many times a day to notice thoughts before they appear. Most of the time it is waking up from the thoughts as I continue it's becoming easier and I catch some thoughts as they appear. That creates some lightness and relief probably from not having attention absorbed. I will ...

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien, Are you measuring your seeing by the presence or absence of lightness and okayness? No I’m not. Those are different things, but it seem to correlate. Are these by-products the signs if a self illusion is recognized for what it is, or not? Yes those are byproducts and I consider them signs...

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivien, How do you know that this should be in a certain way? How do you know that it should be any other way than how it is? I don't. First 3-4 days last week were different. Now it seems like flipping back. Attention is on thoughts big time of the day and lightness and okayness is gone. There i...

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Vivian, You cannot find anything that is not automatic, or there is nothing that is not happening automatically? There is nothing not happening automatically here. What is the difference between Peter and Batman? Neither of them is here. Both exist only in thoughts as stories. Different stories t...

Re: Where else is it hiding?

Hi Viven, My suggestion is that in the following days I give you some more questions and pointers to make sure that everything is clear. I'd love that. Is there anything that is not happening automatically? Anything at all? Cannot find anything. It's like a flow. Is there anything that is separate f...
