Re: I would love a guide to help me!

Hi Jill Thanks for that. Not sure, still seems to be a “me” there but it is not as important as it once was. So if there is one shred of a real 'me' there in experience, please report back on that in detail, so that we can look into that. Or is it only there as (T) ie a theory, some assumptions, som...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

Hi Jill I have sense of being on a cliff looking down is the best way to describe it. Maybe it just a thought/imagination but I actually sense it my body as slight fear and tingling (e). 1. Thanks for reporting this. Could you now stay with this for a while, following the steps of the 'Looking into ...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

HI Jill Yes, that makes perfect sense. When you look back, noticing that 'I' thought, is that a thought reference (T), or is there any experience (E) of 'me'? What's the problem with a thought? Does a thought need to be believed? So right now, what is your experience, if any, - your actual felt expe...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

HI Jill Nice work. Not sure in the first one but in the second I would say no one, just life. So with the first example (either with the feta sandwich incident or with another meal, or with 'what clothes to wear'), compare the flow of activities and inputs with our picture of the mountain stream (re...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

HI JIll That's great. Is it ok if all states come and go in a constantly changing flux? Do you remember in the very first post what I wrote to you? :- It is simply looking into what has only ever always been the case, whether there has ever been any real separate individual here/there. Are you ok wi...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

HI Jill My reaction was some fear (and another contracted feeling and some rapid breathing) which I’m trying to work through. Any help on this? Yes, just stay with these sensations rather than running away from them/trying to avoid/push away. See what they might have to show you (be open to any ment...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

Hi Jill Thanks for that response. I agree that with routine tasks and decisions there is no autonomous entity intervening. It’s the big decisions like buying a car, deciding to get married, etc. I have a problem with. I am trying to make sense of this but I am having difficulty with it. Every time I...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

Hi Jill Thanks for those answers. Now, let's look to see whether we can find any individual there who can choose or make decisions independently:- Imagine for a moment a scene: one of a little mountain stream which is tumbling down a hillside gully, not far from its source. It has been raining and s...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

That's great, Jill this is me (t) 1. Does this thought EVER NEED to be believed? 2. What's the problem if it IS believed? realization that thoughts but label on sensation (t) 3. Is there any problem with this label being put there? feelings of surprise (t) 4. Please tell me more about this. Sounds l...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

Hi Jill Thanks for that response. Well my body did as instructed by my thoughts. There was no "me" controller. Just body and thoughts do no "me" needed. Great! This sense of me must be a thought or concept. I can't see it, hear it, touch it l, taste it or smell it. But it's still a strong feeling fr...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

HI Jill Thanks for that response... So, from what you write, it looks as though there is at least SOME seeing through any 'real independent self'. Yes? But that some things which happen cause some bodily reaction, which is then taken to be 'me'? At home, an allergy attack brought back the "sense of ...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

HI Jill Thanks for that honest response. Getting very confused that this sense of is just a thought. Waffling back and forth between sense of me and the thought of a me. Could you stay with that for a while. What is this 'confusion'? Are there some sensations (E) which come up when you consider that...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

Hi Jill .. and how about "Jill" now, how about "me". What is the felt experience (E) of that? Or is that too a thought/assumption/concept (T). Have a close look and then tell me whether any sensation (E) be found which actually IS 'ME' (rather then just interpreted to = 'me'). Don't rush these exper...
