Re: Crossing the gate

Hi Raffi, You did a nice investigation :) 1. Colors and shapes - this one is easier. Everything has a color and a shape. It’s easy to “see” these shapes and colors. For example, I see a green shirt from where I’m sitting. The shirt has a shape and the color green. This is the raw experience, now the...

Re: no ego

Hi Yorck, There is no experience. There are only sensations and no sensations. And what is the experience of no sensation? Can no-sensation be experienced at all? Or, it can only be conceptualized and abstracted as a thought only? V: Or you can only THINK ABOUT an outside realm, and VISUALIZE an out...

Re: Liv Unbound

Hi Olivia, V: Is there an I thinking thoughts? O: Maybe some greater I beyond the stories and appearances Is this a thought that you thought? Isn’t this just a story, a speculation, a theory trying to comply with the belief that there must be something or someone thinking thoughts? What does your ex...

Hi Chase, the no-self studying is alive and well within “me” :) Great! :) V: What are the thoughts about it? C: I don’t really undsetand what she is asking here skip it i guess. There is the immediate EXPERIENCE what thoughts label ‘breathing’…. And there are THOUGHTS ABOUT that experience, right? S...

Re: New here!

Hi Rowen, You did a nice investigation :) Close your eyes, and scan through the body. Look for every sensation that is present right now. You will find, that as you scan the body, a visual thought ‘shows’ the location of attention, so to speak. If you look very carefully, you’ll find that there are ...

Re: Crossing the gate

Hi Raffi, Also, I like the way you explain things, so I really appreciate it. Good, but I won’t do it from now on :) I just explained things to help to dispel your expectations, but I’m not a teacher so I won’t give just simple explanations, something that you can believe in. I’m a guide, meaning th...

Re: no ego

Hi Yorck, A weight no. Voulume? There seems to be a "space" where the body is. It is fuzzy though and sometimes changing shape but this space is still there. Are you sure that there is an experience of space where the body is? If you perceive space, then you are focusing on the mental image of the b...

Re: soul meeting

more:

There is not even breath in experience, can you see that?

Breath is just another ADDED THOUGHT LABEL on the raw experience of changing and moving sensations, right?

Re: soul meeting

Hi Kasia, the actual experience: diaphragm and chest movements, subtle wind in the nostrils and the sound of it, hard/hardness/soft/softness in the abdomen, cold/fresh air (inhale), warm air (exhale) Are you sure that there is an actual experience of diaphragm? Isn’t that just a sensation in experie...

Re: Crossing the gate

Don't worry. I'm in Australia, so probably in a very different time zone than you are.

Have a nice day,

Re: New here!

Hi Rowen, No, no weight. Volume, my experience is that I feel sensations that correspond to 3 dimensions (i.e., feeling sensation corresponding to sensation on all sides of my head). While “sides of my head” is just a story about sensations, the distinction between relative location of the sensation...

Hi, First of all, thank you for taking the time to help me with this journey. You are welcome :) What name would you like me to call you? I would like to ask you to learn to use the quotation function, so our conversation will be easier to read later for both of us. So here is the link to a video ho...

Re: no ego

Hi Yorck, Ok. So how to investigate this assumption that experience takes place in the body? Just keep observing sensations? OK, in the following days we are going to do a deep dive into investigating the body to see if the body is the experiencer. Let’s start to investigate the body and sensations....

Re: Liv Unbound

Hi Olivia, You did a nice investigation :) And so now I saw Olivia as an image on a screen that was appearing in my mind vision. All the past and future were contained on that one screen of the mind. I asked myself ‘how do I know WHEN these stories take place?’ Do they come with a narration telling ...
