Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

Hi Vivien,

Yup I’m just trying to get set up. Still working out how to navigate it.

🙏

Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

Hi Vivien, 1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? No. There is no separate self and there never has been. 2) Share in your own words what the illusion of separate self is and how it shows up in experience. Also, through your inqui...

Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

Hi Vivien, Is there a witness separate from the witnessed (thoughts)? This has been really strange! I cannot find anything behind the witnessed. It must have been presumed. Can this be? It is quite disorienting. The thoughts are known. But by what? And that’s the point. There is nothing knowing thes...

Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

Morning! In step 1 when thinking about their respective qualities, did you ‘choose’ the qualities? Or did they kind of appear by themselves? If some preferences manifested, did you ‘choose’ these preferences? Or did they just pop up by themselves? They just come There is no knowing what will come or...

Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

Hi, What is it exactly that is recognizing this face? There is nothing recognising this face. It is recognised or known but by what? Nothing. What is it that is calling it as MY face? Ah yes. This is a thought. There is a very discernable gap and difference between the pure knowing/recognition of th...

Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

Hi Vivien, Another person can only ever be other to ME. Without me, there is no other. Just notice that when there is a belief in me, there is automatically a belief in not-me. So if there is a me, then there is a not-me too. Like the body is me, and everything outside of the skin in not me. But if ...

Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

Hi Vivien, Have you seen my second post yesterday with a youtube video? It’s on the top of this page. Yes, I watched it last night. Thank you for sending it. It made quite an impression. It explains a lot. What to say?! If you trace the steps back as far as you can, you end up with something coming ...

Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

Hi Vivien, Outside of time? Is there such thing as inside and outside of time? Time exists in thought only. By saying outside of time, I am saying outside of thought. But you’re right, there is no inside - outside. What is the experience of time in this very moment? Frankly, there is no experience o...

Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

Hi! If you look very closely, is there an experience of frustration? No, this is a thought. What is the experience of frustration? That of experiencing a thought. Color/shape? Sound? Taste? Smell? Sensation? Or it’s just a thought-label, nothing else? It is just a thought. So... there is the experie...

Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

Hi Vivien,

One extra thing that comes to mind (as promoted by the last question) is the clear distinction/line between the world of 'what is' and 'I am'. Does this make sense? Perhaps, we can discuss it tomorrow, please.

Thank you!

Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

Hi hi! What is frustration? It is a label/thought about a thought. It exists to a subject (thought) in the world of thought. For example... "This is impossible!" is a reaction/thought to a disappointing/thought output. And these thoughts are downstream of an 'I' that they are now orbiting. But hmmm....

Hi Vivien, 1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? The first thing to say... It is difficult (thought) to answer this question without believing (thought) in the me (thought) that answers it. These thoughts create the story-of-me a...

Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

Morning Vivien, 100%! Duality is the product of thought. It is interesting that since I’ve seen through the notion of an I, there is so much less thought. And when it comes it is seen for what it is. Just like a dream moment. Language too is inherently dualistic. The one opens their mouth, we’re int...

Re: advaita vedanta lead me to solipsism - please help!

In the seen, there is only the seen, Of course, this points to nonduality, direct experience, reality, preconceptual etc... In duality there is a seer (subject), seeing (verb), and what is seen (object). A subject-verbing-an-object. In this model, the seeing (verb) belongs to the seer (subject). It...
