Re: Ilona, can you see what's missing? :-)

I hear you. Then there are the questions to ask- what are you looking for? What is in the way of clarity? Is there I?

Sending love

Re: Go with the flow

Thank you for reply and sorry for the delay with the answer. Yes, everything is interconnected. Nothing exists on its own in a separate from the whole way. Life alive, complete. You say that body owns thought. Is that true? What is relation to body and thought? Is body a thought, does it own a thoug...

Re: An end to seeking possible

Dear peter, good to hear that you are back. Hope the experience you had in the jungle had many revelations and gifts for you. You are right, integration of experience needs to happen. And it’s not a quick process. Whatever is left has to be allowed, included, accepted, integrated. It’s all about see...

Re: Go with the flow

Nice. It’s not too weird. Thank you for sharing. Ilona, when you’re talking to me, aren’t you really talking to yourself? And when I talk to you, I talk to myself? That makes me experience that in fact we are really both the same. :) in fact there is no one talking. You are not talking to me, there ...

Re: Go with the flow

thank you for exploring this question. can you tell me, how is that you are bound to the body? do you own the body? are you attached to the body? where is the body when eyes are closed, what is there? when you feel sensations, is it you that feels them or the body? is there a feeler at all? where in...

Re: Go with the flow

Good observations. Pretending having control leads to suffering- nicely put. Everything that the body does serves a single goal and that is to reproduce and secure offspring until they are ready to reproduce. That is apparent in every living creature. All sorts of instincts and human thought are cir...

Re: Go with the flow

Dear Conrad, Thank you for reply and sharing your thoughts. You say that we are just biological machines. That’s only if you are identified with the body. And yes, body is moving and doing what it is programmed to do.. it grows cells on its own, and beats heart on its own. But you- are you the body?...

Re: Go with the flow

Hi Conrad, Thank you for reply It feels full and yet empty at the same time. Full because there are so many fantastic things to discover every day, things that I have somehow ignored or not appreciated all along. Also thoughts about how I have lived and understanding of why I have made the choices I...

Re: An end to seeking possible

Sounds fun! Wish you have great journeys, revealing and releasing. Meanwhile, find that energy of seeking, that energy that does not wan to rest, that is looking for something to get. Find it and really look at it. Are you doing it, or is it just there, by itself? What does it want? What is that it ...

Re: Ilona, can you see what's missing? :-)

Hi dear sky, Lovely to hear from you. I see what you are trying to do. And keep on looking! The key is to see that thoughts is not the only thing that is going on and description is just that- a description, not the actuality. It’s not about getting rid of thoughts, but about seeing that thoughts ar...

Re: god is love

Hi. Sorry I did not reply earlier. are you looking for a real self? Then face this- there is no self at all. No self that is in control, managing, manipulating life. All is a manifestation of life, including thoughts about a self. A real or not real self is still an illusion. What is that remains wh...

Wow, going to Peru! That’s great, what an adventure. I guess you will be taking some natural medicines? what doesn't want to rest is the story...about a me...who doesn't want to give up controlling and directing the story, taking credit, etc... Is it ok for that story to continue? Or are you wishing...

Re: An end to seeking possible

I hear you. The quality of seeking has changed but the process hasn’t completed itself yet. Here is a good question to ask- what is that does now want to rest? What is that is not ready to rest?
Write what you find out.

Trust the process.
Sending hugs
