Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

HI Taran I agree looking again is the better option rather than saving everything in a word doc. but fingers crossed I dont have to do that too many times as I find the typing a bit of a challenge as you know. I hope the blip didn't effect you and your work too much!! Thank you again for your attent...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran Yes I am fine thanks. I had already sent you a reply last Friday and I think it was the exercise you just gave me - but I heard you had some website issues ??? so maybe you didn't get my reply. I wrote quite a bit but sadly can't remember what it was I wrote so I will simply answer your que...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran I would like you to raise a hand into the air. It doesn't matter which hand. Look at it very closely. Did a thought “own” that? Was it a self that chose to do that? No thought owns that movement no self chose to do that it was a spontaneous movement (well even that's a thought of course!) N...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran Did you notice that the hand turns without the thought that says 'turn the hand'.? Yes - that's what's so weird ....the more I watch this happening the more weird it seems Close your eyes & sit quietly for 10-15 minutes. Watch what focus does. So focus on focusing, attention, itself. Do you...

Re: Looking for the Guide Taran

Hi Taran You asked me how the previous exercise was for me ie How was that exercise for you? I liked it. It seemed very simple and obvious so "I" enjoyed it. It makes sense to "me". "I" have sort of been aware of all of that on and off all of "my" life. So the exercise was quite fun in that it was n...
