Re: Just a story

Good morning Pål. So, let's summarise; (That is let me create a story) The organism is a story creator. They start with perceptions, which are shaped by (fabricated) history & circumstances. Some stories become beliefs. These ones we respond to with emotion then behavior. We don't have conscious con...

Re: Just a story

Good morning Pål. all of I sudden I saw: it's just another story Yeah, good stuff. Now this is a big one.. Is there anything that isn't a response to story? (of course, from the perspective of the organism) these things are told for the purpose of... Isn't "purpose" a mental construct? Yes, it can b...

Re: Just a story

Good evening Pål. I think that I'm awake and I didn't fully accept it". If you did accept it, do you imagine that you would respond differently to certain triggers? I realized that it's not so important. True. "important" is just part of some social story. ..but what of consequences? And who's to ju...

Re: Just a story

Good morning Pål. Well. Yes. If you say so. Actually I realize I don't really care. It's not so important. i can't work out what this response is to. It is not happening to anyone Yes. This I see, for a couple of years now. So, what was it that brought you back to seek further? Nothing, other than a...

Re: Just a story

Good morning Pål. When reading your responses there was the thought (again) that Pål is already awake, but just doesn't accept this yet. Tell, what will be different when you do wake up? ..or what makes you think that you are not awake? Even the title of this thread, "just a story", is telling. ..an...

Re: Just a story

Good morning Pål. So no there is no objective right and wrong. Yes, excellent. Now, what of consequences? When they are dissolved (for example by inquiry) they are not beliefs anymore What of previously held beliefs that have become internalized? For example, here in Australia, we are taught at a yo...

Re: Just a story

Good evening Pål. I realize when jumping on this again, that like before, I'm inclined to: - get slightly provoked by questions as if they were an interrogation An interrogation would be me looking to find out things about you in order to judge you. i am more interested in what you experience while ...

Re: Just a story

Excellent Pål, Well, you know the drill... Answer every question, reply every day, and besides the answers, tell me what is happening as you consider the questions. I’m in different position today. What is different? But triggered by an Adyshanti question: What was the experience as the triggering h...

Re: Ending the constant searching

Good evening Diana, I can tell myself the story it is what it is, or that everything will work out, or just surrender, there is a story (I can tell myself) that there is someone (you) telling a story (of acceptance) but what i notice in myself and my husband is a feeling of 'i hate this' 'this is no...

Re: Ending the constant searching

Good evening Diana, I have been trying to observe my action during the day and thoughts, of course i forget a lot. Of course you do. Without a break from mindfulness you would be constantly exhausted. Automatic mode reduces the necessary energy consumption. but, these stories, these emotions, they'r...

Re: Ending the constant searching

Good evening Diana, but a lot of the time, though recognized, i still feel stuck in the story The thought jumped out at me that this is because your have very cleverly constructed a story within a story. (Of course you didn't do it. It happened) ..and when you see that (the story within a story), it...

Re: Ending the constant searching

Good evening Diana, so beginning again. Yeah, waking up is rewriting a story. I remember the equanimity and at other times I don't. It seems to be continuous. Yes, it's attention that wanders. (a good thing) Then I criticize myself and call this procrastinating but I guess it’s just life. Yes, just ...

Re: Ending the constant searching

Good morning Diana, Sorry for the delay, I don't know where the time goes No worries. Generally speaking it goes quicker if you're having fun. At times I remember the equanimity and at other times I don't. When you remember it, does it then arrive, or is it already present. (or something else) Every...
