Re: Hello... :)

Hi Jeff, From "Somewhat "other". That is the shocking part. Not at all what was expected. I described it on another forum as a thin sliver of seeing which somehow includes everything it witnesses - in the appearances and the felt sense too." You said "Not at all what was expected"? What was it that ...

Re: Hello... :)

Hi Jeff, Ok, let me reply to your questions: What did you experience at the moment you awoke? In a few words: wonder, curiousity, some shock. Leading up to this experience, were several other experiences that showed the way. Essentially, a lot of questions: who am I, where am I, how do I know I exis...

Re: Hello... :)

Just to fix my spelling...

"Well, what I do know is that such words like "through" are like Heffalump traps. Yes, I see; as for improvement, that too makes no sense to me now. The seeker is gone, the one who wanted to improve, to be fixed."

Re: Hello... :)

Hi Jeff, Thank you for the w-e-l-c-o-m-e. Do you feel that you are through? Has anything improved as a result of it, if so, what? Well, what I do know is that such words like "through" are like Heffalump traps. Yes, I see; as for improvement, that to makes now sense to me now. The seeker is gone, th...

Re: Nothing special going on here

Hi Aaron, Well put. It feels to me like a new beginning. I walked into town today with this seeing and it was fascinating. There were times when the self is evoked to, like when old friends appear out of nowhere. :) Or I found conditioned reactions to say, smile at people. I was sat in a gallery che...

Re: Nothing special going on here

Hi Aaron, I, too, loved Hesse's Siddartha and Beck's Nothing Special - two wonderful books. For years, reading Siddartha was like a reset button whenever I lost the plot. :) I enjoyed Soto Zen for several years, on and off. I still do a version of Shambhala sitting which is simple and direct. I have...

Re: Hello... :)

I just saw these questions, so here goes: (1) Is there a "me," at all, anywhere, in any way, shape, or form? Was there ever? :) No there isn't. Was there ever? I'd thought there was. Funnily enough, I just had a play in an attempt to re-create it - got a headache. :) Better as it is. (2) Explain in ...

Hello... :)

Hello all, Let me be honest. When I first saw what was going on here, I thought it was madness and couldn't possibly work. Then, I decided to watch the Buddha at the Gas Pump video with the two founders, and felt much better seeing that and hearing where they were coming from. :) I had my own awaken...
