Re: Hello, i am looking for help

Hi John I have to answer all your questions saying No. i havent found in direct experience an absolute evidence of the existence of an I. There is the kind of feeling of an I, but I cant prove its existance, it is more like an assumption, but a verycompelling illusion, but there is no significative...

Re: Hello, i am looking for help

Hi Manuel Yes, many times a thought appears and a feeling follows it, and other times a thought follows other thought. One thing triggers the other. Ok, so do you see that "feeling through thoughts" is just an idea that can't be verified through any direct experience? If I rewrite the phrase witout ...

Re: Looking for a guide.

:)

Ok, just answer them one by one :)

And notice whether there is an "I" that is frustrated, or whether frustration is just showing up in this :)

Re: Hello, i am looking for help

Hi Manuel I have been realizing how thoughts take possesion of feelings very fast and put lables on them, so we feel through thoughts i dont know what else to tell you. This is a good observation. You're doing the investigation exactly how it needs to be done, and you're remaining true to direct exp...

Re: Looking for a guide.

Great! So are you clear that there is no "I" or any other entity that can claim any experience. Yes. Ok, so is there a separate self anywhere? So is it clear that any fear, or curiosity, or exhilaration that shows up doesn't belong to anybody or anything? Yes. Are there any doubts about this? using...

Re: Hello, i am looking for help

Hi Manuel I can find no center in direct experience but some how there seems to be a center, a here and a there related to the body, Check with direct experience - is there a center in direct experience, or are there just thoughts that speak about a center? but sometimes I am walking and there is no...

Re: Looking for a guide.

Hi Ken Sorry I haven't answered all your questions John. How does the "quote" function work? It would be easier than copying and pasting. Thanks Ken On the rpost that you want to reply to, you press the "quote" button in the top right hand corner of the post. You will see that any thing that I wrote...

Re: Looking for a guide.

Hi Ken You're doing really well, and making some very clear discoveries, but you tend to ignore some questions that I ask and only answer certain ones. Please reply to all of them, even if they seem silly or repetitious. thanks for the explanation. now i understand the question, and the answer. ther...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

No questions for you xyzzy, I'm going to let Cosmik have a go at you for a while, but I just want to point out to you how you keep rejecting discoveries. Here is an interaction between us about a week ago: My experience doesn't say that I doesn't exist, it just says it doesn't exist as part of this ...

Re: Hello, i am looking for help

Hi Manuel I do understand the feelings of frustration. I went through the same frustration myself. It does all seem to be mind-bending, but that's ONLY because thought says so. Don't lose patience. You're doing fine. Stay with the process. Keep answering the questions. Even if they seem stupid or re...

Re: Looking for a guide.

Hi Ken Is there a some'thing' experiencing pleasure? Is there any'thing' that can call the experience "mine" in direct experience? No. Right, so then can you see that there isn't anything that ever 'suffers' in any experience? Can you see that there may be pain, or there may be sorrow, but they are ...

Re: Hello, i am looking for help

Hi Manuel Hi, John You say the questions are easy, perhaps but I find it difficult to answer them pittng the thoughts aside. I think there are some thoughts so rooted that the I seems to be inherent. I tru to put thoghts aside but when I thing I get it, a tought appear and I dont know if I imagining...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Please go back and re-read the past 8 posts and look carefully at this idea of a 'self'. Is there an 'individual' anywhere except in thought? And do any thoughts about an individual correlate with direct experiential evidence? There doesn't seem to be an individual anywhere except in thought, and s...

Re: Looking for a guide.

Hi Ken No, I can't imagine that "this" ever suffers, or is fatigued. So is there a somebody who is fatigued, or is there just fatigue showing up in this? :) "Is there a separate"I" anywhere? is the question. I just looked for it, felt into it, and couldn't find it, and instead found this alive empti...
