There is no I and inherently we do not exist

Postby PaulieM » Sun Jun 07, 2020 4:01 am

LU is focused guiding for seeing there is no real, inherent 'self' - what do you understand by this?
I struggle to comprehend this I believe it means that everyone change we should stop thinking about J as there is no I seperate from the body and the mind . ??

What are you looking for at LU?
To understand how we can explain how for example the words a book of a chair doesn’t inherently exist . Also how to clear my mind and gain emptiness. An interactive way forward to help Me understand obtaining pure happiness and understanding that unhappiness only comes from self delusion

What do you expect from a guided conversation?
Some help and understanding. The ability to hell and be helped in an interactive group that be if it’s all within the group and then also have the confidence to be able to spread Dharma to other in a clear and understanding manner

What is your experience in terms of spiritual practices, seeking and inquiry?
I spent some time living in a Buddhist centre practicing Dharma daily

On a scale from 1 to 10, how willing are you to question any currently held beliefs about 'self?
10

Hello there :)

My name is Aragon, and I am happy to assist you in exploring the idea of the separate self.

This is an experiential based guiding and is not a discussion or a debate. Realising that the seeming independent finite separate self is illusory is not an intellectual understanding although it may be formulated in intellectual terms. Rather it is an experiential knowingness that is intimately your own and cannot be shaken or taken away.

At LU we are described as guides and not teachers as our role is to directly point to what IS, through the use of exercises, questions and some dialogue.

Your role is to LOOK carefully to what is being pointed at. It is this simple LOOKING (not thinking) that brings about the realisation that there is no separate self and never has been and with this realisation a shift in perception happens.

You can’t just sit and ponder what we are exploring, you must apply the ideas to your life; see them in action…actually do the work (practical application) every day, day in and day out.

Here are links to information I would like you to read before we begin.

Wishing you well,
