Re: Looking for a guide.

Hi Ken Suffering is felt only when experience is referenced to an "I". Without an "I" there is no suffering. just experience as it is. "I" exists in and as a thought. When looked for, it is not found. Actually,"I" seems more like an illusion than a thought, in that it feels like it exists, but reall...

Re: Hello, i am looking for help

Hi Manuel I hope that you and your family are managing to come to terms with the pain of your loss. I know I am not a person from my point of view. I see other prsons but from my point if view I am a kind of background awareness I cant see, no color, no shape, a body without head and instead of head...

Re: Hello, i am looking for help

Hi Manuel

My apologies!!

I was wondering why you hadn't replied for so long, so I went to the thread to post a reminder, and I found your latest reply - which I had somehow missed.

It's very late here now, so I will have to reply to you tomorrow morning.

My apologies again.

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Hi Xyzzy I'm going to jump in here with Cosmik. I think that you have your eyes so set on an imagined "destination" of peace and freedom that you're not realizing the peace and freedom that you've always had. Stress and worry can happen in peace and freedom. Everything can happen in peace and freedo...

Re: Looking for a guide.

Hi Ken This is indeed a quick reply. My immediate reaction to the last couple of exchanges is frustration, annoyance, and even boredom. The topic of free will was interesting at the beginning, seems tedious now. I thought I was in a good mood...maybe I'm not. I'll revisit this later, though I don't ...

Re: Looking for a guide.

Hi Ken You tell me. Take a look at direct experience and tell me whether there is even such a thing as choice, or whether "choice" is something that thought makes up about things that happen. A thought pops up which says "I feel like a cup of coffee" and making a cup of coffee happens. Was there rea...

Re: Hello, i am looking for help

Hi Manuel I'm very sorry to hear about the death of your grandmother. My condolences to you and your family. The death of a loved one is always a time of self-reflection, and reflecting on memories. I don't want to put you under any pressure at this time. You haven't fully answered all of the questi...

Re: Looking for a guide.

Hi Ken

Take a look at this link for information on how to use the quote function http://liberationunleashed.com/nation/v ... ?f=4&t=660 .

It may decrease the levels of frustration that show up when you reply ;)

Re: Looking for a guide.

A thought springs up which says "Should I have tea or coffee?" and a thought springs up that says "I think I would prefer coffee". Was there a thinker of those thoughts? Was there really a choice for anybody? Was there even a choice about the thought "Should I have tea or coffee?"? What wasn't "Milo...

Re: Looking for a guide.

Hi Ken Can choices be made without anybody making them? You tell me. Take a look at direct experience and tell me whether there is even such a thing as choice, or whether "choice" is something that thought makes up about things that happen. A thought pops up which says "I feel like a cup of coffee" ...

Re: Hello, i am looking for help

Hi Manuel Thoughts say anxiety should not be there, but becausei it is perceived as a discomfort or painfull. Thoughts imagine a better situation in which there is no pain, no anxiety. Circumstances trigger this axiety. I can see this has a lot to do with thoughts. Thoughts are trigger by circumstan...

It has resolved positively, thank you for caring :) Suffering is felt only when experience is referenced to an "I". Without an "I" there is no...

Re: Hello, i am looking for help

Hi Manuel I see that the universe is not confused or not confused, confusion is related to thoughts. John I dont undérstand awareness. Am I right if I say that awareness and that which awareness is aware of, are the same thing. Well so long as you don't think of awareness as something that has any e...

Re: Looking for a guide.

Hi Ken Sorry about my slow responses this week. I had a family emergency last weekend, and it's taken most of this week to resolve itself. A number of experiences indicate that an I is very much present: My wife calls me "selfish" and I act with outrage. How dare she accuse me of that? "I" is insult...
