Re: Nara's chat

Not quite an idea about what is responsible. More physical than that, more like the eyes being the organs of the sense therefore the blackness feels connected with the visual sense. Hmmmm . . . these are two different things you are referring to. The exercise was to report from the sense of seeing....

Re: Nara's chat

Ok, good stuff Nara. There is just blackness, there is an association in my experience of the blackness being connected with my eyes. In what way? Do you find eyes in the experience? Or is 'eyes are seeing' more like an idea about what is responsible? Open your eyes now. A room / world of different ...

Re: Hello

The temptation is to say, because there is an experience, that you can establish that there is an experience-er. But is that relying on something other than the experience ITSELF? Can one be found? Incidentally, there may be distance in the sense of seeing - I mean, distance from the objects that a...

Re: Hello

If, however, I do stop for a second and look, I see what we spoke about before - regarding not being able to see what is doing the looking - and it seems like that should make a difference, but for whatever reason the sentences still seem true. Ok - Good. Let's go into that then. Let's just take on...

Re: Hello

Hi Space Forgive me for being a little bit brutal in the last message. The thing is, I need to be strong with you so give me your honest responses of what you believe is TRUE for YOU and not responses simply from what you've been told is the right answer, or what you THINK is going on. This guidance...

Re: Grateful for this opportunity to get some help

I don't know what to call it. It really has no name. I have used the words awareness, great expanse, non-local awareness, etc. but now it really is clear that these are fingers pointing to the moon. So it's clear that there isn't a separate self or body here right now seeing and reading. Good. What...

Re: Nara's chat

It is indeed personal to me but not where my sense of 'self' exists. Where does it exist? Can this location be witnessed in some way? Right, we've had a good consideration of what 'I' relates to and some ideas about consciousness having a personal location. Now we begin LOOKING (and by that, I mean...

Re: Grateful for this opportunity to get some help

When I read this the answer was "no, I don't really believe I am an individual, separate self looking and reading" Ok, what do you believe IS doing this then (if not a body or a person)? Whatever you suggest, can you tell me how it is clear for you that the answer you have given is indeed true. For...

Re: Grateful for this opportunity to get some help

Ok, Brian Let's begin by getting established what we are referring to when talk about 'I' or 'myself'. As mentioned in the last reply (and I won't harp on about this) but the guidance isn't about fancy non-dual beliefs or spiritual stuff - This is very much 'grass roots' level - A really simple basi...

Re: Grateful for this opportunity to get some help

Hi Jazul24 I am sorry I haven't responded for a while - You seem to have 'dropped off my map' (the system doesn't subscribe me to the threads automatically). I've subscribed now, so I should be able to reply constantly for you. A number of my friends are involved with breaking the ten fetters and I ...

Re: Looking for a guide

Is it's definition as a pronoun not sufficient? No, but it's a perfect sufficient reply to show me your current level of interest in the guidance. I think I am missing the difference between thinking and finding. How can you find but not think? At what point does it stop being finding and start to ...

Re: Nara's chat

Hi again Nara Let me just remind you once more, that I am trying to establish what 'I' points to in your current understanding. This has nothing to do with non-dual beliefs you may have picked up from non-dual teachers. At the risk of repetition it is mind that is witnessing the imaginary orange. Or...
