Re: Clarity

Hi Allen . I find it harder to do the nature exercise indoors for some reason. It’s harder to get the same experience. I find it a lot easier in wide open spaces outside. Having recently returned from a trip to the Lake District in England I completely agree. Wide open natural spaces, or maybe even ...

Re: Clarity

Hi Allen, At last. I'm home and can read your post properly! . I appreciate how you guide me to look for myself. I've just been spending more time looking with your questions before replying. I'm really glad to hear this. Looking for yourself is exactly what's needed and you're doing it! . I think s...

Re: Clarity

hello Allen, I am sorry to have been out of touch. We went away on a short holiday and I didnt dream that there would be no wifi or charging for my mobile! Even now I have about five minutes of wifi before I'll be disconnected. I was able only to glance at your post but it looks good. But I must sim...

Re: Clarity

Hi Allen . There’s an assumption or thought story about a me here doing the investigation and experiencing it, but the separate entity is never noticed, never detected, never known. Even the doing itself is a thought story about things getting done I think. There’s nothing known to exist that is sep...

Re: Clarity

Hi Allen, . However, a question does come up for me. Is the content of our individual experiences (whirlpools) not that important? (I think this is what makes us differentiate ourselves into separate entities? Well. I'm not going to answer this question directly so much as to ask one or two more. Th...

Re: Looking for answers

Hi Nathan. That's great. I'm really pleased that you are happy with the outcome. I feel that I didn't really guide you as such, so I can't really take any credit for it. There have been people who have arrived already seeing that there is no self. Its not unique. But it is very unusual for anyone no...

Re: Clarity

Hi Allen Very good to hear from you and how you have been investigating things! . I don't notice a separate self in sensations, but the idea of it being somewhere is still strong. Now, this is something that can go on for as long as it is believed, and it's probably been going on as an unquestioned ...

Re: Getting it

Hi Sophie . Ah yes! Good point 😊 life flows. There is still hanging on to a sense of self I'm sure there is an impression or idea of 'hanging on' but where is the one that is doing that? See if you can find that one. . Yes there is an expectation of a change in experience to peace. It really cannot ...

Re: Getting it

Hi Sophie . It feels good to recognise that there is a possible peace in allowing experiences to flow rather than believing there is work to be done, control to exert. It isn’t translating into everyday experience yet though... Who or what would 'do' the 'allowing'? There's an expectation that a dif...

Re: Looking for answers

Hi Nathan Thank you for your answers. It seems, from what you are saying, that you never noticed that a great number of people go around identifying very much with a mental story of being a 'me' and having a 'my life', that is imagined to be separate from 'you' (and 'yours')? Not only that. Its very...

Re: Getting it

Hi Sophie
. The story becomes more compelling and engaging because there is‘important work to be done’ ‘protecting the self’. But nothing actually changes, no real self turns up .
How does it feel to see this?
