Re: I would love a guide to help me!

HI Jill Great, thanks for that. Ok, so, considering your list:- Sitting on a chair in the dining room. (e) Feeling very full. (e) Looking at the yellow walls.

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

Hi Jill That's fine. Good answer. First we are going to look at the difference between two types of experience: 1. firsthand sensed experience (ie via the senses), eg smells, sights, sounds etc which is all that can truly be known, right? and 2. thoughts (technically, this is the contents of thought...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

Hi Jill Thanks for that response: perfect! So now is time to stop reading all other dialogues and just focus on this, your first-hand investigation. In fact, before we go further let's just clear up some basic housework around having a dialogue here:- A few quick guidelines: look to post regularly (...

Re: I would love a guide to help me!

HI there and welcome to LU. Thanks for the information given to the initial questions. What we will look into here is not about changing to any better state or experience. It is simply looking into what has only ever always been the case, whether there has ever been any real separate individual here...

Re: Stop the search

HI Claudia In my very first response to you I wrote (which I have already quoted recently):- In this investigation we are not looking into getting into any new state, nor getting anything new; we are simply looking into what already is, always has ben , and can only ever be the case. If you are up f...

Re: Stop the search

Ok let me know when you have contemplated the rest, and what comes up.
There are no sensations coming up.
So you have died then? How do you know you are alive?

Cheers

Re: Stop the search

HI Claudia Many thanks for explaining. So it looks as though some sense of separation is coming out of comparing the past 'blissful' experience with THIS experience right now, and finding a difference, is that right? Wanting to get that experience back? Feeling that THIS experience is lacking in com...

Re: Stop the search

HI Claudia Thanks for that. I don't know how it is to be free, but I'd imagine your mind would be still? You would know that there is nothing to gain or lose here? So you would be ok with whatever is happening. Where does this expectation come from (that the mind would be still)? Please have a look:...

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

HI Hursh Thanks for that. I keep thinking about other teachers' point on "what is noticing the T/E?" But even that is a (T). In experience there is only (T) and (E). Huh... let me sit with this for a few days. OK let me know once you have pondered this. Don't forget at the beginning of this dialogue...

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

Hi Hursh Ok let's look closely. Mark: When you say, ' it .. ' (ie the label 'Hursh') ..'is a label given to one small piece of life', are there 'other pieces of life' except as thought stories? (T). In (E) what is there except for THIS experience? Your reply 'it is a label given to one small piece o...

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

Hi Hursh, Thanks for that. Mark: So where is the individual called 'Hursh'? Can such an entity actually be found in experience (E), or only as a thought story (T)? Hursh: No, only as a thought story. It is a label given to one small piece of life. When you say, ' it is a label given to one small pie...

Re: Stop the search

HI Claudia - there is still this force, this unpleasant force that wants things to be different than the way they are. - I am not yet at rest with THIS moment. I still think that there is something to be seen through. I don't know how it is to be free, but I'd imagine your mind would be still? You w...
