Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

HI Hursh, As a PS to my last post, here is a video clip which you might find interesting. Whilst not intended to replace our own exploration into this question, the British scientist/mathematician explores the issue of free will and takes part in some experiments including one interesting one where ...

Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

HI Hursh, Great. This matter of 'whether thoughts decide anything' is a really fascinating investigation, and it's really something which can be pursued post gate for further looking, as can many issues which come up. But as it has come up let's pursue just a little, ok? Yes, of course, traditionall...

Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

HI Hursh Good to hear from you again. To see where we're up to, might be interesting for you to answer the 5th question again from the summary questions:- 5) Do you decide, intend, choose, control events in Life? Do you make anything happen? Please try to describe the process as best you can, even i...

Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

HI Hursh Great, thanks for that response. When you say 'it's all arisings', that sounds a bit like non-dual jargon from someone or other. Could you try to pin down as best you can in your own words exactly what that means to you when you say that. Did you actually wiggle your fingers, and if so what...

Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

Hi Hursh THanks for those responses Just on what you wrote in response to the 5th Question: But it still feels in experience like those thoughts affect action You say that it feels in experience like those thoughts affect action, but where is that experience of thought affecting action? Where can yo...

Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

Hi Hursh Hehe, fine. Ok then, It is looking as though the illusion is being seen through here. If you have any further issues you want to raise please feel free to do so now. Otherwise, I will give you our summing-up questions. Please take your time with them and just answer them honestly and as ful...

Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

Hi Hursh

Ok then. Just one thing to consider for now:

What are you responsible for, if anything?
What is there there to be responsible?
And what/who is there to be accountable TO?

Just let me know what comes up in actual firsthand experience when you consider those questions.

Cheers

Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

Hi Hursh,

Good to hear from you and thanks for the update.

Do you want to continue the investigation? (and/or get admitted into the LU post-gate groups and forums?)

Cheers

Re: Stop the search

HI Claudia In my very first response to you I wrote (which I have already quoted recently):- In this investigation we are not looking into getting into any new state, nor getting anything new; we are simply looking into what already is, always has ben , and can only ever be the case. If you are up f...

Re: Stop the search

Ok let me know when you have contemplated the rest, and what comes up.
There are no sensations coming up.
So you have died then? How do you know you are alive?

Re: Stop the search

HI Claudia Many thanks for explaining. So it looks as though some sense of separation is coming out of comparing the past 'blissful' experience with THIS experience right now, and finding a difference, is that right? Wanting to get that experience back? Feeling that THIS experience is lacking in com...

Re: Stop the search

HI Claudia Thanks for that. I don't know how it is to be free, but I'd imagine your mind would be still? You would know that there is nothing to gain or lose here? So you would be ok with whatever is happening. Where does this expectation come from (that the mind would be still)? Please have a look:...

Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

HI Hursh Thanks for that. I keep thinking about other teachers' point on "what is noticing the T/E?" But even that is a (T). In experience there is only (T) and (E). Huh... let me sit with this for a few days. OK let me know once you have pondered this. Don't forget at the beginning of this dialogue...
