Re: For Jadzia - Big steps forward

I would say that it means not getting lost in thoughts and rumination, and instead engaging with the 5 senses, and with the facts of life - rather than living in your head. Look deeper. It sounds like there is an expectation, erm one or two or so. Once the the question: What exactly is self? is ans...

Re: For Jadzia - Big steps forward

Hi Rex10, do I call you Rex or ten? ;-) Lets start our walk and see where it leads us, lets follow all little paths and see what we find. We live in our heads and life passes us by without our true engagement. There is something for you to ponder and chew on a bit: There is no self as entity and not...

Re: Relationships

Sounds like a good deal of resistance. Can you pretend that the outcome of what we do here is totally uninteresting, nice, but hey, not so important? Take all pressure away and just go into the child has fun to play modus? I don't understand what should happen, what these physical sensations should ...

Re: Ready!

Is it that we are so used to the use of language 'aware of X', 'this sees that' and so on, that we assume two things, rather than one experience? The language we have supports duality and separation. You say you figured the witness out. What exactly did you figure out. These concepts are sticky, so...

Re: Ready!

So in both cases you couldn't find anyone doing the hearing or feeling. There is the heard and the felt, the hearing and feeling. No one who hears or feels. Interesting eh. You can check the same with seeing, tasting. Thoughts, subtly and quickly, identify the source of the sound and by doing so the...

Re: Ready!

All this is mind baffling, yes. Lets have a look at something: You wrote I see, feel, hear..... Focus on the next noise. Shortly listen to thoughts labeling, starting to tell a story. The noise is heard. Is there any difference between hearing and the heard? Is there someone hearing? Focus on the ne...

Re: Ready!

And if doing something practical at the time it is like observing the body acting by itself.
Is the body acting or is simply action happening?

Do this again and again, allow yourself to get out of your head and explore.

Love,

Re: Ready!

What would happen if for a moment or two you would drop all thoughts? What would happen if you for a moment just don't care for explanations? How something is, what follows what.... What if your belief in thoughts would fail? If thoughts could be around but no one listens? Just for a moment. Love, J...

Re: Ready!

In terms of gating, here are some thoughts that have come up... - what do we mean by gating / how will I know? (your description of your understanding of difference between seeking and curiosity is helpful here) - lots of uncertainty here - in my story uncertainty = therefore I can't be there, also...

Re: Ready!

Sometimes one already has one or even two feet in the Gate but isn't quite through yet, almost but not fully. This is ok. I have seen that choice just happens, by very close inspection of small 'choices' - not really choices, just movement from no intention to intention. The so-called other option d...

Re: Ready!

Seeking, for me, is an active process, often combined with a yearning, seeking something out, being on the look out for something. Curiosity is a kind of openess, an allowing of what appears in life, coming to think of it, for me joy and curiosity are connected, well .... tell me in what way you see...

Re: Ready!

There are a lot of beautiful changes: "I can see that they are stories and the detail of them don't affect seeing/knowing." "The argumentative voice of 'but what about x or y?' has quieted. " " There is no urgency now, and I'm more comfortable with where the journey is taking me (rather than needing...

Re: Ready!

Hmmm. So, when I had those really strong experiences of connectedness / no separation, then at the time and for a while afterwards I was very calm, very at peace, and absolutely everything was ok. The mundane was even beautiful. Everything can be very fresh and new and beautiful and very peaceful a...

Re: Ready!

Definitely while being extra ill, I've had to be much more 'one thing at a time' - right now I'll do this (story = how will I feel later, will I be able to do all my work today, what if x, what if why...? but letting go of this and focusing on just now). Let's call this a benefit from a not so nice...

Re: Relationships

The odd thing is that we use thoughts to investigate, we need words to talk her in the forum and words telling us what happens but at the same time we have to learn not to listen to thoughts as if our lifes would depend on it and to learn that not everything thoughts tell us is valid information. So...
