Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, Once again, thank you so much for your time and help! I was wondering if you have any suggestions of non-duality writers/ teachers that you enjoy reading or listening to? (not that any of it is necessary for investigation but I love a good book!) I'm familiar with Rupert Spira, John Wheel...

Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, Are you saying that the body follows the thought? How do you know this? This was an assumption made without going back and investigating it. In that moment that's what it seemed like, because I was relying on thoughts and memories to construct the answer. After reinvestigating, things are...

Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, The questions were fine, just over the last few days there have been a lot of very intense emotions rising. I haven't experienced them this intensely in many months. However, what you said is always there in the background, that this flip flopping may continue for a while. 1) Is there a s...

Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, Can you say with certainty that it has been clearly seen that there is no separate self in reality? Is there any doubt? There is no more doubt. I have certainly seen through the illusion. I don't think it would ever be possible to not see it for what it is. Is there anything that is not s...

Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, Are you absolutely clear that awareness and experience are not two separate / distinct things? There was still some thinking of separation there up until now. After your explanation, it is clear that they are not separate. The separation has been falling away from some other concepts too....

Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, If perceptions are actually appearing IN a non-physical, invisible, untouchable something. So is this how it is? Is this what experience shows? Maybe not necessarily in it, as I can't perceive it through senses, there's just awareness of it ... It is not separate from things appearing eit...

Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, We have to be careful with words… since it’s very easy to swap identities… so instead of believing that I am the body-mind, the belief in the existence of a real I can move to a subtle form of identification with the thought “I am presence”. Can you see this? As in the belief in the separ...

Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, Thank you! :) What is this I that is present? There is no I that is present, there is just presence, with things appearing in it. What is it that makes the statement that “I AM present”? The statement "I AM present" is just another thought appearing, trying to explain what is happening. I...

Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, The person/ Greta is an illusion, a thought, a story that appears as a thought. 'A being', 'one' are just labels and other ways of referring to the story. There is experience happening but there isn't some sort of a being or a thing experiencing it. There are sensations, feelings, thought...

Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, Are you still with me? It has been quite a while since your last post. I want to apologize for not replying for so long. For some reason I kept putting it off to reply and before I knew it a couple of weeks past and there was a lot of procrastination and a bit of resistance. Then there wa...

Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, Only twice as much? :) Usually less than 1% of thoughts point to experience. All the rest is just story. So probably you missed some. Can you see that all there is in experience is seeing, or color/shape? And everything else is just interpretation, thought narration only? Things are much ...

Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, Attractive for who? Is there someone being attracted to certain thoughts? Where is this one? It's another way of labelling it ...instead of ''positive'' and ''negative'' thoughts, the new label is ''more attractive''....it's attractive to the story, but no one is there to be attracted to ...

Re: Subside the story

Hi Vivien, But does a thought actually know what it’s talking about? Or it ever offers ‘information’ but without actually knowing (being aware of) what it’s babbling about? No, a thought is just an object that appears and disappears. Something that is triggered by DE or other thoughts....it has no c...
