Re: Seeking Peace

Hi Stacy, I felt like I was struggling to describe my experience here... Hmm. Are you saying that describing the pineapple and eating the pineapple are "similar?" This asked you to compare an in-the-moment Actual Experience with describing, right? No, I’m saying describing after the eating of the pi...

Re: Seeking Peace

Stacy, Thanks, yeah it is a lot. It would be easier if growing a human didn't seem to require so much sleep! Especially lately. Sometimes I fall asleep on the couch right after dinner, and don't get to this or multiple other things I meant to do. Anyways, I have read some of Gateless Gatecrashers an...

Re: Seeking Peace

I have seen those types of pictures. I actually saw one the other day and had that experience of not being able to unsee! That's a great example. I haven't had that experience with reality yet...or at least not a permanent one. I feel like this temporary experiences have always been on the mind leve...

Re: Seeking Peace

So, did you *think* or *feel* or *see* to find those answers? I still feel confused about “seeing” and not sure if I’m doing it...but what this seemed like was dropping more into my body and feeling, the desire for the mind to answer, then dropping back into the body and feeling...and seeing that I...

Re: Seeking Peace

What is it exactly that is choosing which hand to raise? I don’t know. The one hand is being raised and one is not. That may change the next time I do the exercise or it may not. Can you find a separate individual or anything that is doing the choosing? No. I have no idea why one is being lifted an...

Re: Seeking Peace

LOOK at the place where your butt meets the chair. Can you find a place where your bottom ends and the chair begins? Remember it is the looking that matters not finding. I’ve been playing with this the past few days. Thought comes in with all types of explanations and perspectives but without payin...

Re: Seeking Peace

Hi Stacy, Yes, the thinking is a very strong habit and it wants to answer the questions "correctly". I see that it gets in the way without my knowing it sometimes. Can you see how you answered a question that was not asked? And did not answer the questions that were asked? Look carefully there. I do...

Re: Seeking Peace

Hi there! No ghosting. Just pulled the site up on my home computer and apparently I never hit submit on this the other day. So sorry! Stream Exercise Does it choose any of its directions? No, it lets the direction happen. Is it even really a separate entity different from the water deposited in it, ...

Re: Seeking Peace

Hi Stacy,

Apparently my last post didn't post. Just checked since I hadn't gotten and email notification in a few days. I'm at work right now but will get it off my computer when I get home and repost it! Just didn't want you to think I went MIA.

Re: Seeking Peace

Hi Stacy, The question is how is that a good thing? What kinds of good have come out of being disappointed? Being disappointed has seemed to motivate me to make positive change in my life, for sure. How might you be a better person for having gotten through being disappointed? I am more confident in...

Re: Seeking Peace

I disappoint me. I'm disappointed in myself for the decisions "I" have made and the results of those that "I" experience. I'm disappointed I still get so hooked on my thoughts. I cause my own suffering by having expectations about how things are "supposed" to be. I disappoint life. I don't think tha...

Re: Seeking Peace

Hi Stacy, Sorry, I misunderstood what you were asking for. Yes, I am still working with a facilitator pretty regularly and will continue to work on this with her. It is definitely much easier to do the work in person/over the phone. I would like to focus on looking here, with you. However, this inqu...

Re: Seeking Peace

Good afternoon! Yes, I can definitely see that it's coming from thinking. I often feel like my understanding is only intellectual and I struggle to look, without using my thinking to direct it. Especially when it comes to questioning my thoughts...any suggestions? I see an image in my head of the pe...

Re: Seeking Peace

I know right?!? Then what? Just this. Just right now. I know, but I still feel resistance and contraction here. Just trying to relax into it with curiosity. Who would you be without this story of "Life disappoints me"? I'd be like the stream. Just flowing with the elements. Just experiencing life or...
