Re: ... a dandilion on the wind ...

Hi Lubo Apologies for the delay. As you say - plans can go awry. As a business owner I'm acutely aware of this. But let’s look closer: Do you have to plan something today? Plan and watch how it happens. Can you not make plan? Can you make a different plan than what seems the best option? Is plan dep...

Re: ... a dandilion on the wind ...

Hi Lubo Still looking. Seeing that the breath just breaths itself. Still attempting to look and to see instead of think and remember. Have been reading some more of the forums and Gateless Gatecrashes for the ways that others have changed and grown their understand from thinking to looking. As well ...

Re: ... a dandilion on the wind ...

WoW! ok hallo again ... Can you really see that there is no controller and everything is happening by itself? Yes. I see it clearly in the natural world. When I "see" this I experience it as a feeling ... maybe ?joy? Words can be insufficient and very clumsy. Now, can you check - What is not happeni...

Re: ... a dandilion on the wind ...

Hi LuBo: Please use correctly quote function. Apologies! What if there really is no controller and everything is happening by itself? What would be lost? This would be fine, no problem at all. Merely an adjustment in understanding. Nothing lost at all. all this is just a thought Thank you for clarif...

Re: ... a dandilion on the wind ...

Hallo again! Have been doing and considering this ... Do the hand flip exercise several times a day and watch what happens first, the thought or impulse, action or description? and only now as I begin to write - do I think that dancing and hand flipping might be linked. I thought about the hand flip...

Re: ... a dandilion on the wind ...

Hi LuBo :) - Turn the hand up and down several times and notice what happens first - thought, action, impulse to do it? Could it happen differently? How the choosing which hand to turn happen exactly? It seems that action happened first but perhaps I thought about it very quickly for the response to...

Re: ... a dandilion on the wind ...

Hi again: - what is the colour of the wall in front of you? Or nearby white - Is there a sound in this moment? Fan of my lap top - are there sensations? Maybe for a bio break? - is there a smell? No. Neutral - are there thoughts? Thoughts about the painter coming to give an estimate for work. Where ...

Re: ... a dandilion on the wind ...

Hi LuPo My apologies ... my reply ended abruptly as my dog disrupted me. It was all happy and fun but I realise I may have hit send and ended unclearly. Now time is tight but a little more can be shared about "me". Fear and ego cause me to constrict around my sense of "me" and make me feel separate....

Re: ... a dandilion on the wind ...

Ha! Apologies for the typo of your name, but am glad it worked out fun ;-) Stories! Nothing wrong with stories at all in a broader context. Stories can be very entertaining and fun. What I meant is that what I think of as "me", is really just a collection of stories (perspectives?). Stories I have b...

Re: ... a dandilion on the wind ...

Hallo Lupo: my call-name is "sally". tombi is the zulu word for "girl". Formative years were spent in Africa. Either is ok. Thanks for saying hallo! iro: how willing are you to question any currently held beliefs about 'self'. The reason I wrote 8 (although the internal urge / response felt like an ...

... a dandilion on the wind ...

LU is focused guiding for seeing there is no real, inherent 'self' - what do you understand by this? Intellectually I think this means there is no separate self, just life living itself. Relaxed abundance. However! Big view is very easily forgotten in the humdrum of every day and i constrict into a...
