Re: Stop the search

Hi Claudia, Thanks for those considerations. It seems as though there maybe is not a readiness JUST to LOOK at present? More to think your way to this. If this is the case then there are many books that can be read. There is a list of BOOKS in the menu at LU. If you want to do this, please then set ...

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

ps if you can't find really wild nature, then go to a park or the nearest you can find.

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

HI Hursh, Again, nice work. Good looking. So where is the individual called 'Hursh'? Can such an entity actually be found in experience (E), or only as a thought story (T)? I invite you now, as soon as you have time, to go out into nature and spend a at least good 20 minutes there. Just watch what i...

Re: Stop the search

HI Cllaudia Thanks for that response. Mark I really want to see through this illusion. a) How do you know it's not already seen through? b) What is there there to 'see through' anything? What is there except for 'THIS", the aliveness of this moment? You have not done the exercise proposed in my post...

Re: Stop the search

Hi Claudia, Thanks for that. I don't know if you can see what I am pointing to :( Yes, I do. Seems that if someone stands next to you shouting 'you are ugly you are ugly you are ugly' there are two things which can happen:- 1. Run away to where the voice is not heard. 2. Know that it's not true and ...

Re: Stop the search

HI Claudia, Thanks for that response. There is this force who wants to change things, who wants the moment to be different. You said before that this force does not exist. I am yet unable to process this. Please show me where I have ever said that 'this force does not exist'? My role is not to teach...

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

HI Hursh Good to see some careful looking going on here! (E) noticing tv, watching tv (T) I had to be at my friend's place at 4pm (E) Noticing clock (E) Noticing time (T) I should go (E) Getting up sensation Here it seems like the first (T) definitely influenced the body and subsequent experience. B...

Re: Stop the search

HI Claudia, Thanks for that honesty. This is not easy for me to face but I am coming to the conclusion that I will never find anything. I am looking and looking for something to "reveal" itself that would put my mind to rest but I don't think that will ever happen. Remember what we said right at the...

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

Hi Hursh, Thanks for that detailed report. I even have vivid memories of the sensation of intention as I do things but it is not here when I look for it. There does seem to be intention in that thought-action correlation. So in (E) can intention be found, or can it only be found as a thought assumpt...

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

Great response, Hursh, and thanks for reporting all those (E)'s coming up. Nothing of its functioning seems somehow autonomously or externally influenced. Will observe further tomorrow. Cool. I look forward to your news. Please let me know whether any 'intervening, autonomously controlled' action ca...

Re: Stop the search

PS I am confused See whether you can describe, as exactly as possible, what is the present sensed experience (E) of 'confused'. Does there NEED to be an 'I' to own "confused", or could there just be the sensations? If 'confused' is happening, could 'confused' be ok in some way? Could it be ok to 'do...

Re: Stop the search

Hi Claudia When I realised that my attention was not on my present experience but in Thought a feeling of anger arose. NOw, if I dont exist, who was angry? Can you pinpoint exactly what are the sensations (E) of anger? (Maybe you have to bring that moment into the present moment in order to recall t...

Re: Stop the search

HI Claudia Thanks for your response. Looks as though a separate self cannot actually be found, only thought up, is that correct? But that you have some questions which crop up about it all, right? Just to remind you: I am not here to answer your questions, only to help you to look for yourself and s...

Re: Stop the search

HI Claudia, Thanks again for your response. I is label yes. Bird was label yes as I did not see the bird. Heard I think was not label but actual experience. The same with sound. That was not a label. It was real. Would you say otherwise? Can you find any word at all that is not a label (T)? Actually...

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

Hi Hursh Mark: could it be that assumptions (T) have been built up throughout life, and taken to be real (T)? Hursh: You're right, it could be an assumption. Will inspect as I move through daily life. Please let me know what you find. Does the "I" have any influence on (T) or actions? Seems you have...
