Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran Thanks for your response. I’ll do as you’ve suggested and take a couple of days to do the exercises before I reply but firstly please can you answer a couple of questions for me? What does AE stand for? The label ‘Vself’ is AE of thought and not AE of Vself Colour labelled ‘Vself’ is AE of ...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran You have asked me some very difficult questions. I will try to answer but I am having trouble understanding or getting my head around some of them. Close your eyes and imagine holding a watermelon in your hands. Imagine it so vividly that it seems as if you can feel its weight, the shape an...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran What has an all knowing and all seeing being got to do with looking to see that the separate self is unfindable? You either can find a separate self or you can’t? I have not been able to find a separate self Where is the confusion and uncertainty in that? Ideas which have no foundation in d...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran So, can you say with 100% certainty that the "I" as is thought to be doesn't exist? I question whether anything can ever be said with 100% certainty. I accept that I am limited in experience and knowledge. I am not an ‘all knowing’ and ‘all seeing’ being so can only speak from the experienc...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran Please give a step-by-step description on how 'you' looked to see that there was no "I" to be found in "I found", "I tried" and "I turned". What did 'you' do in order to see this? Oh gosh this seems like a really difficult question to answer! But to try to answer your question - I suppose I...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran When I turned to look at a book but without the label 'book' I was more aware of my direct experience of eyes opening, eyes turning, eyes looking. Not sure if I was supposed to take the label off eyes as well as 'book' so I tried it without any labels and I found there was just looking, tur...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran Sorry for the delayed reply. As you know from our conversion I have had a busy weekend. Have been attending to your suggestion of no labels often though.... So the room is empty? There’s a void? no Or is it that everything is purely appearing without labels? yes Spend the day trying to be w...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran This exercise is broken into 10 minute lots. For each 10 minute period pay attention to any bodily sensation ie is there any tightening, or any relaxing? For the first ten minutes write down what you are experiencing right now using the word “I”. For example: I am sitting on a chair, I am h...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran Some quotes from the previous post are repeated below - I’ve done that so I can reply to separate parts of what you’ve written. Hope that’s not too confusing. It seemed more thorough to do this on this occasion. Hope it’s clear. Well it is good to keep looking until every part of you is con...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran [ quote]Please answer the question when looking with DE. What is "difficult' in DE? Is it a thought, smell, colour, sound etc...what is it? Sorry. I realise I slipped off the track a bit with that! I’ll try to keep on the DE track. There’s nothing ‘difficult’ in DE - it’s just thought conte...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran I am interested in your sad face responses to several of the answers in the last post.... aren’t you here to see through the separate self? Are you having to question more beliefs than you thought? Or is it something else? What fears are arising? Yes I am here to see through the separate se...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran Tell me more about the resisting.....What sort of thoughts and sensations are arising? I am considering the possibility that my sense of self is only a thought.... in some ways this make over for sense but that’s only a thought too so what is there after that .... nothing or no thing. And i...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran Thanks again for your time and attention to this process with me. How has the rest of your day been? Have you had any more opportunities to see that the sense of self is only a thought? I am watching it most of the time on and off How did/do you respond to this realisation? I am both resist...
