You could play with this over the next couple of days, perhaps with other sense e.g. sound and vision, perhaps watching people or cars... let me know how that goes.
Thank you yes I’m happy to do that. But just to clarify with you.... I’m to do what exactly with (For example) people or cars?
Generally, I'm wondering how this is going for you, because you put such short sweet answers, I am not quite sure how things are 'landing'....
I’ve been putting brief or yes or no answers to your questions partly because that’s what I thought you were wanting based on a lot of the questions being closeD questions (Seeming to require a yes or no answer) rather than open questions.
So I wanted to be brief to be clear (for you and for me) so I did the exercise until my answer was (or seemed to be) clear enough to give a yes or a no answer.
Also I haven’t really felt I had much to say after a yes or no because if I were to start thinking and analyzing and reflecting I thought I might get myself into trouble! (not with you 😂 but with myself!) I thought it best not to think or feel beyond the actual exercise but just let the experience and the recognition Of the experience get absorbed more deeply into my being and my general experience of life....if you see what I mean.
Plus another reason for brief answers is that I’m aware you’re time is precious and your work on LU is a gift to I didn’t want to (and don’t want to) take more of your time than is absolutely necessary.🙏🏼
I’m happy to elaborate in the future if that’s what you need from me but up till now I only expanded on things when I felt it necessary.
How are you feeling now you have investigated the nature of thought a bit and seen there is no controller?
The hand exercise was awesome. I’ve always felt that I am energy Occupying this body and on Numerous occasions I’ve had experience of not being in it and needing to get back in it (or not as the case may be) and on occasions I’ve felt I was lurking somewhere Near it so the last two exercises have felt reassuring in that other people know this too.
Did this bring up any emotions for you? Confirmation and reassurance May have brought up a sense of completeness or calm but I am only making that up now. I wasn’t aware of any emotion at the time of the exercise other than ‘yes’ which isn’t an emotion but might have had a sense of warmth, knowing and wonderment with it(?)
Has there been any change in your experience since the exploration started?
Mostly not because I think I’m doing a lot of that in my daily life anyhow. But the most subtle thing that’s intriguing me is the no controller - demonstrated in the hand exercises. I understand about sensations vision and thoughts Being seperate from one another but wasnt so aware of no controller as is demonstrated In the hand exercise.
D o you have any questions so far?
Non other than mentioned earlier in this post - as in please can you explain exactly what it is you are asking me to keep doing (You suggested with people and cars)
Many thanks for all your time and attention and guidance
