Re: Realising nobody is here.....

Hi Jay Thanks for your list: excellent. In fact, all the list items include some (T) don't they, if only for the verbal labelling/description necessary to communicate here, but we'll have to accept that as part of it! Agreed? As we continue, I would like you to notice the difference what is (E) ie w...

Re: Realising nobody is here.....

Hi Jay, Thanks for those observations. We may come back to some of them later. Now I would like you to sit for about 2-3 minutes and just notice all that is happening, all that is noticed, whether sensations (all the senses) or thoughts. Then make a list of all that was noticed for those 2-3 minutes...

Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

HI Hursh Great, thanks for that response. When you say 'it's all arisings', that sounds a bit like non-dual jargon from someone or other. Could you try to pin down as best you can in your own words exactly what that means to you when you say that. Did you actually wiggle your fingers, and if so what...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

Ok, Jill

Bear with me now. I'll see whether any other guides have questions. May take a while.

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

HI Jill

So, just to be clear:-
a) have 'you' ever truly intervened autonomously into the flow of life?
b) Is there anything that 'you' are truly responsible for?

Cheers

Re: Realising nobody is here.....

Hi Jay So for our first exercise I would like you to re-read through the list of things which LU IS NOT, from the home page. (This can flush out any expectations/uncomfortable feelings). What I am inviting you to do is not so much to discuss them intellectually, but rather to pause over each item an...

Re: Realising nobody is here.....

Ok Jay, So before we go further let's just clear up some basic housework around having a dialogue here:- * Look to post regularly (at least every other day) or post to say if a break is needed. * Please set aside any other teachings (including reading, listening to talks etc) and spiritual practices...

Re: Realising nobody is here.....

Hi there JayJ, Welcome to LU and thanks for the information given so far. If you are looking for attain some special state, then I cannot help you, but if you are up for looking into what is, has only ever been, and can only ever be the case, then we can look together if you like. Just let me know i...

Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

Hi Hursh THanks for those responses Just on what you wrote in response to the 5th Question: But it still feels in experience like those thoughts affect action You say that it feels in experience like those thoughts affect action, but where is that experience of thought affecting action?

Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

Hi Hursh Hehe, fine. Ok then, It is looking as though the illusion is being seen through here. If you have any further issues you want to raise please feel free to do so now. Otherwise, I will give you our summing-up questions. Please take your time with them and just answer them honestly and as ful...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

Let's go back to the exercise of picking up one hand and wiggling the fingers (which we did on Skype). Do it and then consider: How did you choose which hand? How did you choose which order to wiggle the fingers in? How did you choose which direction to wiggle each finger in? Was there a mind decidi...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

HI Jill So please explain: what is it that seems unclear about the decision-making? What is there there to be responsible for anything? Where does a separate autonomous self intervene into the flow of life (which is like that mountain stream we discussed earlier), and makes independent decisions? Tr...

Re: Excited to be here! And to live in self-less-ness.

Hi Hursh

Ok then. Just one thing to consider for now:

What are you responsible for, if anything?
What is there there to be responsible?
And what/who is there to be accountable TO?

Just let me know what comes up in actual firsthand experience when you consider those questions.

Cheers

Mark
