Re: A jump to truth.

Hi Nigel, This morning looking again at the idea of self there seems to be always an experiencer or observer. There is no sense of substance in the experiencer. The sense of greater solidity only comes when this experiencer is associated with something such as my body, mind story etc. The body produ...

Re: Pay Attention

Hiya Keith, I’ve been sitting with “without anyone” as a frame, and it does seem to be a basic perception of mine, and it is terrifying although I don’t let the terror in very far. I’ve been allowing that this is a perception, and not the truth, and that feels like it could be heaven. Ok, good. Stay...

Re: A jump to truth.

I have been looking at the question of self today. I don´t find a concrete self to identify. A kind of fluid sensation / assumption changing with circumstances and enforced by language requirements. You mention 'concrete self', so for you, the word/idea 'self' refers to something of substance. Woul...

Re: silence

Hi Phil,

Lovely to meet you too. Thanks you for your email.

I'm really looking forward to being guided through the LU process.

So I'm ready to start as soon as you are.

Ok, good.

Phil, in a nutshell, what is this inquiry about for you?

Best wishes,
John

Hi Adam, You are absolutely on the money here. I am in a battle with the ego. When I look at things, they don't immediately feel to be lies, which I know they are. As if I am playing with this on a shallow intellectual way, I who am I trying to kid? This is ridiculous, why is there even this other i...

Thank you so much for giving your time freely to this exploration together. The clarity and grounding of your pointers helped keep me out of the mind stuff. It'...

Re: A jump to truth.

Returning to the filter , built of learnt ideas and emotions its only existence, is that given by belief in it.

Briefly, for you, to what does self refer?

Thank you,
John

Re: Pay Attention

How will life be different when something never there is still not there? I imagine stuff will just keep happening: choice will be made; breath will be breathed; work will be done; emotions will be felt. And without anyone doing those things. Do I trust that? Not enough I guess. Ok, good that we've...

Re: Breaking through the illussion on seperation | Corona from the Netherlands

Corona/John is the story / the coat about a self. Yes, although story sounds a bit 'once upon a time'. :) This is a kind of conditioned personified perception and we use the word 'self' to describe it because our experience of it is that it has some autonomy/agency. The human being or "no self" is ...

Re: A jump to truth.

A good point. Something ( or not thing!) we could call it reality, for example, is recieving perceptions thoughts sensations. I heard a new word yesterday which I liked.."bodyworld" which suggests how the body makes possible the world which it is itself a part of; a sort of self sustaining loop. Bu...

Re: Pay Attention

Is there trust that the hand moves as and when required? Is there trust that the eye blinks, and the body breathes, as and when required? Yes, these things are taken for granted. It was surprising and reassuring to notice how I trusted breathing to happen, and then a bit disconcerting. Ok, that's f...

Re: Breaking through the illussion on seperation | Corona from the Netherlands

I feel that there is no self. That all is one. That I am just a representation in the physical body of something bigger. This sounds to me like an intuition of being, let's just say, a natural human being reading this with no name, nor in need of one. But my mind feels very attached to the person"c...

Re: Breaking through the illussion on seperation | Corona from the Netherlands

Yes for sure!

:)

Ok, share with me about "I understand that there is no self and I don't understand that there is no self."

Thank you,
John
