Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

Hey Kento, Sorry for the long time between replies. The dreamland life of Scott went a bit crazy. I've been looking lots lately though and have been enjoying carrying water and chopping wood ;) It's been really interesting watching life unfold completely on its own. Lots of thoughts about our conver...

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

What is a hand? The hand is consciousness or whatever the heck everything is made of. I don't know if there's a label for it. It all combines to make an image of the hand. There's sensations that get thought as hand but with no physicalality to the hand there's no way for the sensations to come fro...

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

Happy new year Kento! "There's sensations that tie into it experientially" "It's just another object." Could you elaborate on these? There's sensations of temperature pressure tingling whatever it is that show up that can get written as hand, but don't really anymore. Unlike the table or chair where...

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

What about now? What is your hand now? It's just an illusion, a combination of visuals, sensations etc. Its the same as everything else. There's sensations that tie into it experientially but no ownership there. It's just another object. Would you like to tell what this "god" is in your own words? ...

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

I watched my hand disintegrate into the aether or whatever over and over again, then come back together. This part isn't very clear; could you elaborate? Well I was under the influence of psychedelics. I was doing the exercise from my practice of pointing to where "others" see "my" face. So pointin...

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

Thanks so much for sending these over. Been adjusting to this new reality and it's been an interesting process. 1) Can you say with 100% certainty that you have realized that there is no separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? Yeah it's all an i...

Hey Kento,

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

But there is still a feeling of ownership of that state or a tie in to me somehow even though I can't find any evidence of me. There's just some belief in there I'm having a hard time recognizing the untruth of. What is this "feeling"? How is it perceived? This is something I'm having a really hard...

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

Hey Kento, sounds good :) Lets take a look. Who is the one that is disrupted? I'm don't know. It's like the state of open unfocused and wide attention is disrupted. But there is still a feeling of ownership of that state or a tie in to me somehow even though I can't find any evidence of me. There's ...

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

Ok Scott, my question was, Is "just being" something existing apart from thoughts, perceptions, etc and the "selfing"? Ah whoops, I misinterpreted your question. I'm still not totally clear on what you're asking but I'll give it a shot. It doesn't feel like something existing apart from everything ...

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

Is "just being" something existing apart from thoughts, perceptions, etc and the "selfing"? Yes they are something very different. Being is clear, it’s open, relaxed, peaceful, empty and available. Thoughts etc bubble up into being until there’s focusing on them but they’re two very different thing...

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

Hey :) Is "just being" something existing apart from thoughts, perceptions, etc and the "selfing"? Yes and no. It seems "just being" is always present where as thoughts and perceptions seem to arise and fade away so there is a separation while "just being" is happening and thinking etc isn't, and th...

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

Would you like to actually observe and describe what was found? So I was observing last night and it looked like that in each and every moment there is just "being" prior to everything else. Just being seems to be prior to the thoughts, perceptions, etc and the "selfing" that occurs. So if one can ...

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

Sorry for the slow response. I haven't been staying at my actual home so my routine has been all thrown off for the last few weeks. But I want to keep with this consistently so it's my top priority at the moment to do this work. There isn't much thinking in the it being outside of me, if I don't thi...

Re: Wanting to know the truth of our reality

I wouldn't say it's lousy that it's outside at all. It's actually kinda nice. It feels in a way like everything sort of comes from out there. It's like it's all part of my experience and the thoughts arise the same way a sound might. They just sort of come to me.
