Re: Freedom Now

Then it all shifted back to me being the doer person again. Things have shifted back to me doing whatever I'm doing and once again the mind chatter is saying that I should have done this or I should have done that in the past. The conditioned patterns are very sticky! Yes, the conditioned patterns ...

Re: Awakent

Why isnt everything happenning without a me..or at least why dont I see it. This is a wrong question to ask. Why question requires an explanation for an answer and explanation is never the truth, it’s something that you believe because you want to believe at that moment. So let’s drop the question ...

Re: Awakent

Thank you. You say that you see that actions responses are happening without a me. What is happening with me as a doer? What is not happening on automatic, naturally and effortlessly? Does narrative about me requires me to talk about it? Is narrative a response that is happening or that is done by y...

Re: Freedom Now

Wonderful. I hear you. Yes, there is no big boom, no fireworks, it’s quite the opposite. The shift can be so subtle that it can go unoticed, and yet looking back it’s clear that the view in how things are is different. Can you look back and tell me what has changed and what hasn’t? Do you still beli...

Re: Awakent

Seeing that, is there something else to know?

What do you notice in normal everyday life, that looks different? (Reactions/ responses to what is happening)
Is search still going strong or has it diminished?
If searching is still on, what are you looking for?

Love.

Re: Awakent

Dear abner. You had an experience, and as all experiences come and go so did this. It’s not that a separate self was gone, but there was a state of openness. There is no separate self to come and go. Like there is no Santa and no no-Santa. There is no state that sticks, no feeling is permanent. You ...

Re: Freedom Now

Thank you for reply. Not sure if it is true stillness silence or just that fear won't share it's wisdom with me. But either way there is no answer. That IS the answer. Take it. The silence of thinking mind, the gap between thoughts, the awareness is there, that is the answer. There is nothing there!...

Re: Thread for JackSprat

I invite you to spend time with these questions and investigate deeper. Give me something from your experience. An idea that wants you to believe? Nope. Ideas don’t want you to believe. Look in actuality. Is reaction to stimulus ego? Does reaction need an ego? These questions in my previous posts ar...

Re: Awakent

Dear abner. I invite you to read my reply and spend a whole day with the questions. No rush to answer. I want you to investigate in your actual experience and come back to me when you have done that. This is not a quiz of quick answers from the head. These are pointers for you to explore and explore...

Re: Thread for JackSprat

Let’s not rush. “I think I’m ready?” Is not the answer I am looking for from you. :)

Right, let’s see what is the deal with ego. What does the ego do? What is that word ego point to? What does this ego want?

Write what comes up.
Love.

Re: Who am I?

Thank you. There is nothing wrong with sense of self and sensations called “body”, the goal is not to get rid of anything, or stop the sense of self. It’s all included. Thoughts, feelings, sensations, all is included. The point is to see that the sense of self is not you. The sensations are not you,...

Re: Awakent

When does the separate self appear? And does that appearance point to an actual self that is separate from the whole? Does a story about me, create an actual entity me, that is in charge of a separate piece of life? Is it ok for the separate self to appear? And what do you mean by separate self? Wha...

Dear friend, how is it going?
Nicely expressed about mistaken identity!
Would you say, you are ready for the final questions? If not, is there anything else you want to look at?

Re: Awakent

Great.
Was there ever a separate self?
And how do you see free will and choice? Describe that based on your current experience.

Thanks for the love, sending love back.
