Re: I'm starting to sense what is not there, but I don't think I'm fully there

Hello Vivien, I just wanted to post an update since I have not posted a while. I'm trying to be as truthful as possible: I've lost the thread of pursuing liberation with this method. I got tired and anxious and disinterested, when I read more and more and more questions coming at me it felt like cri...

Re: I'm starting to sense what is not there, but I don't think I'm fully there

I wanted to say I’m sorry for not responding in time and not keeping my original commitment. Then there was a thought: Vivien would probably ask - who is sorry exactly? I sat down, and let the thoughts come and go. The main observations: - There is no strong “voice in my head” that comes up, there i...

Re: I'm starting to sense what is not there, but I don't think I'm fully there

Thank you Vivien. The easiest way I can go about explaining it is that I stopped looking and seeking. There is a big difference between seeking and looking at what is here now. Looking is not seeking. Looking is noticing what is here now in this moment, and what isn’t. Can you see the difference? Ye...

Re: I'm starting to sense what is not there, but I don't think I'm fully there

Hello Vivien, Yes I'm here. Thank you for bearing with me. Since I last wrote a perception and feeling kind of switched in me. The easiest way I can go about explaining it is that I stopped looking and seeking. I just to be and see and feel in most moments. That is still going on, it's true now. Sim...

Re: I'm starting to sense what is not there, but I don't think I'm fully there

Hello Vivien, Thank you for you comments, again. I’ve read them and the blog post once, but I want to do that again a couple of times and try to create space/time for myself to follow the insights and explore and See (instead of intellectual work). I cannot do that today so I will need a couple of d...

Re: I'm starting to sense what is not there, but I don't think I'm fully there

Since I would like to follow your instructions as they are intended, but I'm not sure about this, can you please clarify when you say "Please reply to all questions one by one." Does this mean I should observe myself about each and every question separately and type out answers as they come and then...

Re: I'm starting to sense what is not there, but I don't think I'm fully there

It’s confusing to think about where exactly it came from - deep desires, imprints, todos, needs, all the things that are layered on the “naked mind” (?) spark them? I don’t know. This is just a speculation, which appears as thoughts too. Just notice, if you are thinking these thoughts about trying ...

Re: I'm starting to sense what is not there, but I don't think I'm fully there

Thank you for your answers and responses on my thoughts and questions. These concepts are much more clear now. Especially the flip-flopping part, what happens when the self is seen through (conditioning don’t go away immediately) and why dropping all expectations are necessary. To answer your questi...

Re: I'm starting to sense what is not there, but I don't think I'm fully there

Thanks Vivien for the thoughtful answers and questions! What name would you like me to call you? Joey would be good. It's a pseudonym - hope that's not a problem. Regarding your other comments, a couple of different points came up that are somewhat mixed, so I'll just type as I expand on them in my ...

Re: I'm starting to sense what is not there, but I don't think I'm fully there

Hi Vivien! Thank your for taking the time and be my guide in this process. I really appreciate it. I would like to ask you to write only from your experience as you see it, what feels true, with whole honesty. And also post daily. If you cannot post, or need more time, please let me know. Can we agr...

I'm starting to sense what is not there, but I don't think I'm fully there

LU is focused guiding for seeing there is no real, inherent 'self' - what do you understand by this? I suspect and sometimes see that the 'me' / 'self' concept that was conceived and built on top of being that is based on freely flowing life is false, and it's not something that is natural and give...
