Present Observer

Postby StaceyC » Tue Jun 23, 2020 6:03 am

LU is focused guiding for seeing there is no real, inherent 'self' - what do you understand by this?
I have been learning about there being no self from Bhudism studies. This is new for me. The past few years have been amazing while learning I am not my thoughts and I am present. Right here. Right now.

What are you looking for at LU?
I am interested in connecting with and learning from like-minded people. I appreciate my studies about the mind, particularly my thoughts. I'm learning my thoughts are simply a reel of events or worries or expression. I appreciate the ability to separate myself from my thoughts, examining them if I choose.

What do you expect from a guided conversation?
I have no expectations. I am open to the experience, welcoming understanding and awareness. I am intrigued by the concept. I would be lying if I said I was not excited about the opportunity. I have been guided though meditations and hypnosis but have not yet found guidance from a non-self perspective, other than attending dharma talks.

What is your experience in terms of spiritual practices, seeking and inquiry?
I have sought understanding my entire life. First through religion, then substance abuse, and not too recently found Bhudism. I am very open and welcoming of spiritual practices from many perspectives. That's how I've made it to 51 years of age. And I LOVE the "agree and acceptance" clause. That in itself fuels curiosity. Well done.

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