Re: guide request

If I concentrate on tying shoelaces, then all my attention can go into that activity. But that could also be stated as "shoelace tying is and the illusion of a subject doing the tying are occuring", which does not need a "Marc". Your understanding is solid. The trick now is for you to see the truth...

Re: No Subject

It looks like you're in the club my friend ;). I'll be sending you a private message with details on where to go from here. See you in our Unleashed group!

Re: No Subject

Welcome! You do not need to offer anything, so that's quite alright. We have a standard set of questions we ask each person that has "passed through the gate". Please answer these as best you can. 1) Is there a 'me', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? How about self, is the...

Re: guide request

is there something else I could read to establish exactly what it is I should be looking for and how to move forward. Definitely. Let's go back to one of your earlier posts that has a great example to look at. "...Like I said in the previous post: 'the "I" goes into that activity'. I should not hav...

Re: guide request

Here's some more tinder for the bonfire my friend. Enjoy. . This deconstruction is a result of constant obsessive inquiry into the self. Deep down I can sense that something stinks and my mind follows the scent for hours or days like a bloodhound until it realizes that there is nothing there (it nev...

Re: guide request

I want to completely obliterate the illusion of an "I" that is separate from the rest of the universe. After that I would assume that being lived without a parasitical "I" would at least allow for a more meaningful life in which the world is allowed to be what it is instead of what the "I" wants it...

Re: guide request

Sadly, yes, I still feel this "I".
What exactly is it that you hope you will achieve through this "seeing"? What are your expectations there?

Re: guide request

You could say instinctively, out of habit, got up to go to the bathroom and did not make the conscious decision ahead of time (you could have, but I'll assume you did not). This is a case where the "I" label gets applied retroactively. But I would also assume that when you plan where to go on vacat...

Re: guide request

What to you mean by "attention drives"? I meant to say drifts. Woops! It could be helpful to your progress if you could perform this exercise (settling your attention on breath, and bringing it back to the sensation of breathing when thoughts happen) every morning at a set time after you wake up fo...

Re: guide request

As long as you are answering questions honestly and from your experience then you are doing fine. I would like you to change one thing though. No more of this "I seem to believe" or any of that. Answer from your experience as directly and honestly as you can. The less hesitation between writing and ...

Re: guide request

No worries Marc, it'll take however long it takes. The nice thing about this process is that we're not trying to add on to your existing beliefs. This is about looking at what's already there and questioning it. This actually brought to mind one of my favorite quotes from 'Zen and the Art of Motorcy...

Re: guide request

I may not know exactly what "Marc" is, but I strongly experience such an entity in practice through the body. This has been your reality for a fair portion of your life so it's quite understandable. I won't hold it against you ;). The entity labelled as "Marc" seems to be always on the inside my my...

Re: Ready to pop...guidance welcome!

Scott, it looks like I managed to stumble into the wrong thread last night ;). I was a bit tired!

Please answer regardless and continue with Patrick.

Re: Ready to pop...guidance welcome!

You create a good description of the state but it is purely intellectual. The understanding is fine but it won't get you anywhere. It's time to start looking directly at your experience of life and ask questions.

Look at your memories and try to find this person called Scott. Where is he?
