Re: Waking up

Hi

There is a question for you from another guide :

WHO knows what is good and bad choice? Isn't 'acting through love and compassion' or 'being in the way of it' any more than concepts? Definitely helping the son happens, but who is the helper, the decider?

Thank you

Re: Waking up

Hi

There is no one more experienced or not. You know if you have seen it or not. When it is seen it cannot be unseen.

Can you be not aware ?

Re: Waking up

Hi One interesting thing is that there does seem to be an underlying sense of love and compassion to everything, as though it's an innate part of the knowing. Great. It feels like my responsibility is to let this "drive" so to speak. To get out of the way and just let things happen with love and com...

Re: Waking up

Hi I hope you are doing well. Fine, These are the final questions. Take your time for each of them and give answers after having looked at direct experience. You can give answers for a half of them now, the other half a day after. No worries. 1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, a...

Re: on a non duality video bender

Hi Joan With our dialogues and direct looking, I really can’t find a separate self, only thoughts and sensations. However that manifests, I’m not sure. As far as feeling like wholeness, I really don’t know what that is supposed to feel like- Yes, there are thoughts, sensations, colors, sounds, ... T...

Re: on a non duality video bender

Hi Joan

I read your answers. Answer to this question with a great honesty :

Have you seen that there is no you, no separate self in any shape or form ?

If it is YES : what was seen ? Where what is seen ?

If it is NO : there will be a suite to this dialog.

Re: Waking up

Hi Are you happy with what you found? What has changed, what hasn’t changed in normal everyday life? What do you notice different in relationships with close people? Is seeking still going on and if so, what are you looking for? Can you say with a big fat yes, that it is clear, a separate self is an...

Re: New Member

Hi Soa Great. There is an exercise for you : Sit down comfortably and close you eyes. Can you attend to sensation exclusively? Not minding thought babbling about this and that? Not minding thought labeling sensation for a bit? Thought may tell: "I am lying here" or "My body is lying here" or "A body...

Re: Gateless Gate

Hi Drichter The mind is overcomplicating the simplicity of experience. For example: when a sound is heard the mind pre-labels the sensation as just hearing. This is confusing in that I am not sure if thoughts are saying there is only hearing, or only hearing is the raw sensate experience. I cannot b...

Re: Waking up

Hi Thank you for your answers. An exercise about attention : Close your eyes and sit quietly for 10-15 minutes. Watch what focus does. Focus on focussing, watch attention itself. Do you move it? Or it moves by itself? Hold focus on breath. See how attention moves to thoughts, sensations, feelings, s...

Re: Waking up

Hi There is doubt because your expectations about seeing that there is no you are not fulfilled. I want you to be clear about that through this exercise : There are 3 labels, images or thoughts : 1. A stranger 2. A friend 3. You, put your name. What are the differences between them as concepts, sens...

Re: New Member

Hi Soa No, not particularly. My thoughts seem to be mostly influenced by what I am going through currently, like school, job..etc. These are not your thoughts, only thoughts. Sometimes I get a desire, like food/water, and I am aware that I will have a thought about that, but when I am in a neutral s...

Re: Gateless Gate

Hi Drichter

I hope you are going well.

Don't look so hard. It is so simple to see that there is no you, no separate self. It is like seeing the absence of a tiger under your bed.
