Re: Please help me liberate my "self" (a guide request)

What is that "me" that is doing the walking? It's me that's doing the walking, but not in any sort of self-conscious way. In what way then? I know you want to answer "unconsciously", but that might be just a strategy for evasion. (A much used strategy!!) Remember to rely on direct experience only, ...

Re: Please help me liberate my "self" (a guide request)

Hi Gus,
is everything ok? It is best if you post every day - even if it is only " I need more time to look into this". To keep the momentum going.

Thanks

Re: Please help me liberate my "self" (a guide request)

Hi Gus, I'm a bit busy this weekend, so just a question for you to contemplate: It's me that's doing the walking, but not in any sort of self-conscious way. What is that "me" that is doing the walking? Is it "you" or is it the body? If it is "your" body, what is this you that owns the body? What doe...

Re: Please help me liberate my "self" (a guide request)

I'm guessing that this is what happens and that I'll come to agree with this statement, but need some time for reflection before I can answer authentically. You're right, guessing is not good enough. And trying to catch these ephemeral thoughts isn't easy, since the notion that there is a self doin...

Re: Please help me liberate my "self" (a guide request)

Hi Gus, sorry for being unclear: Isn't a thought conscious by definition, from the start? I literally do not understand this question. How can a thought be "conscious"? It seems like more of an event than like something that could possess consciousness... What I meant was that a thought is known (th...

Re: Please help me liberate my "self" (a guide request)

I feel more like I am the receiver rather than the thinker of thoughts. Does that mean that thoughts are being fabricated, and then sent to a you for reviewing? Isn't a thought conscious by definition, from the start? (Or could it be that the idea of a self just slips away into not-yet-looked-at co...

Re: Please help me liberate my "self" (a guide request)

If you don't know what your next thought is going to be, and thoughts "simply happen", are you then the thinker of thoughts? Or do thoughts just show up, followed by other thoughts saying "I just thought about x"? In thinking, is there anything else but thoughts showing up, without control? Is there...

Re: Please help me liberate my "self" (a guide request)

Let's take a closer look at the activities of your supposed self, one by one.
Watch your thoughts and activities during the day, with focus on the following:
It is the "me" that does the thinking
Do you know what your next thought is going to be?
How are you deciding what to think next?

Re: Please help me liberate my "self" (a guide request)

Ok Gus, so take a good look at this entity "self".

I say it just does not exist. The self is a myth, a fairy tale figur like Santa Claus.

Can you describe what "self" is, from your own direct experience? Without referring to second hand knowledge!

Re: Please help me liberate my "self" (a guide request)

Dear Gus, welcome to Liberation Unleashed! You say you have read the disclaimer, so you probably also know the general forum rules (post at least once a day etc.). So, let's take a look at this thing. And, since my reality consists of suffering, I'd like to change it. Doing so requires that I change...

Re: Guidance trough the Gateless gate

Lieber Peaceman, du bist auf dem richtigen Weg, an der Klarheit führt kein Weg mehr vorbei. Ich würde vorschlagen, dass wir das Ganze erst mal ruhen lassen, und du dich um das kümmerst, was in deinem Leben jetzt ansteht. Wenn alles in ruhigeren Bahnen verläuft und sich stabilisiert hat, kannst du di...

Re: Guidance trough the Gateless gate

Wie wäre dieser Moment ohne den Gedanken "es muss besser werden als es ist"? Er wäre trotzdem da. Voller Erfahrung, Muskelkater, Gefühl, Gedanken, etc. Klar wäre er trotzdem da. Der Moment ist immer da, es gibt nichts anderes. Wie würde er sich anfühlen ohne den Gedanken "es muss besser werden als ...

Re: Guidance trough the Gateless gate

Aber anders werden als es ist oder war. Das is so mehr mein Thema. "Es muss anders werden als es ist" taucht immer zusammen mit dem "Ich-Gedanken" auf, ist immer eine gedankliche Bewegung weg von dem was IST in eine bessere aber imaginäre Zukunft. "Besser" für wen? Die Gedankenbewegung weg aus dem ...
