Re: Seeking a guide

Look again for your sense of self. What is it? Where is it? Describe it, directly, here and now, without assumption of what you should find. I experience myself as a human being sitting at the kitchen table. In my experience, I am this particular human being and being aware of perceptions, body sen...

Re: Seeking a guide

The thing I seem to be stuck with is being very aware that the answers that I come up with are just concepts. So I don't feel like they are taking me anywhere. Yet I don't know how else to answer the questions.

Re: Seeking a guide

What is this mind of yours? Where is it located? I seem to be stuck here. I can give you a bunch of answers about what this mind might be and where it might be located. I don't think these are the kind of answers you are looking for. I don't know how to respond other than with ideas and assumptions...

Re: Seeking a guide

It seems my sense of self is in my own mind. I have formed a sense of "me" (my whole being whatever that is) which I am mentally referring to us "self". It doesn't have a shape and as it is only a mental construct.

Re: Seeking a guide

What is being protecfed by this feeling? Look deeply and ask within, what needs protecting? It feels like it is my sense of self itself that feels threatened. Conversely, is the current moment, here and now, safe? Are there any immediate threats to your life, wellbeing and safety? You need not exer...

Re: Seeking a guide

Hi Dion!

I don't know what happened. For some reason, I either didn't get a notification of your responses or missed them somehow.

I have been going through some very rough time. I apologize for the delay and will now get back to the questions that you asked.

Re: Seeking a guide

What is resisting? Resistance to what? It seems to me like there is an instinctive part of my mind which tenses up and resists feeling emotions. From where does this resistance arise? It arises from feeling unsafe. This is somewhat confusing as even though some part of me seems to be resisting feel...

Re: Seeking a guide

Who or what is this someone? All I can say is, it really seems the one that is experiencing this is me. It is not another being. There is just the experience and I am experiencing it. Is that someone or something being felt, or is it feeling the emotions? No, I don't feel that someone. It is just m...

Re: Seeking a guide

Hi Dion! I had the wonkiest experience of my life yesterday. As I was looking into this, I felt like "no there is no feeler". There didn't seem to be resistance and neither was there any sense of separation. The reason why there didn't seem to be any separation because everything seemed to be "my ex...

Re: Seeking a guide

I'm going to take a moment to sit with these questions some more. I find it worthwhile to spend some more time on these. I'll get back to you tomorrow. Thanks!

Re: Seeking a guide

Tell me, can you devote yourself single-pointedly, whole-heartedly and absolutely honestly to this? Yes, absolutely. How does that manifest, Thomas? Where? When? This is pretty difficult to explain. I might wake up in the morning feeling anxious, have a sense of something being wrong and feeling ge...

Re: Seeking a guide

Hi Dion! Thanks for offering to be my guide. I would love to take you up on your offer. Here is a little background in order for me to clearly answer your questions. I broke up from a relationship a little over two weeks ago. During the relationship I often had anxiety, especially when I needed to b...

Seeking a guide

LU is focused guiding for seeing there is no real, inherent 'self' - what do you understand by this? I understand that the sense of self is basically a bunch of thoughts. I have had this basic understanding for quite some time, but feel like there is more to look at. What are you looking for at LU?...
