Hi John.

sure. Take your time.
Just don't go into thinking and intellectualisaion..
Look with the eyes of a chlld. A child doesn't know how things are. Doesn't know anything about the past and future.
Look like a child.

Much love,
Luchana

Hi Luchana,

The following is what I wanted to add to my previous post.

All experience is happening Now. And all experience nothing happening outside of experience.
In looking at this what is noticed is that words, ideas, memories do not point to something outside of experience now. When I say New York, there is no real city of New York. There are just the words New York and the sensations that come with that word. Similarly, when I remember what I had for breakfast yesterday, there is no breakfast that happened yesterday, there is only a thought whose content is "yesterday's breakfast".

Through this what has been difficult has been trying to understand if change exists. It seems that change is there. Though till now it has been impossible to point to. Whenever I try to, all I find is an experience that is happening now. When the idea of change comes up that idea is happening now.

Finally the thought of reality existing independent of perception is being let go off. It is more and more clear that what is is not a table. But an experience of a moment in which there is an experience that is named table. And within that experience of the moment there is so much, a lot of it thought, mental images, which are just as real as table.

Much love and hope this all makes sense,
John

Beautiful. All this make sense yes. It is hard to describe this mystery...

Do you notice a difference in your daily life, in the activities, interactions .. and so forth?
Please, report from the last days.

Also spent time looking at these questions:

Is there a seer?

Is there a feeler?

Is there a hearer?

Is there a taster?

Is there a smeller?

Is there a controller?

Is there a chooser?

Is there a decider?

Is there an experiencER at all?

Is there anyone or anything having the experience of whatever is happening?

Is there anything that is not totally clear and you would like to look at?


Much love,
Luchana
