NIce. Not being sure opens up the possibility for inquiry.


It's presence or life and it's everywhere.


What is it that's perceiving this?

I'm not sure I can't describe it. Not sure how to look without thinking. When I relax, close my eyes and feel in to the moment, there's a spaciousness and an awareness of perceiving.

Is that awareness possessed by someone?

Is that awaresness possessed by someone?
When you use the word possessed do you mean - influenced or controlled by something. If you do. Then I can say no the awareness is not possessed by someone or something. It just is.

When you say "It just is," how does that apply to your everyday life - eating breakfast,
going to work, talking to people, laughing, getting angry, etc.?

Would you say all these are is "just is"?

Hi Kento,
When you say "It just is," how does that apply to your everyday life - eating breakfast,
going to work, talking to people, laughing, getting angry, etc.?

Would you say all these are"just is"?
Funny not really thought about what I mean when I say it just is. As I look closer now, I realise I mean that it is just happening already. or it is just here now. or it is what's showing up now. It's what is appearing now. If I left out the word it just is. What's left - it is happening now. It is here now. It is the way it is now. It is the way it is showing up now. It is what is appearing now. All happening, appearing, showing up and here now without the influence and control of someone or thing.

As I write I'm looking out of the window in to the garden, The wind is moving through the air and the branches on the trees are swaying in the air. No one is influencing or controling this. It is happpening and it is beautiful. Nature, Life or energy of life moving and unfolding.

Just like me sitting here breathing and typing. I'll stop there because now I think I'm influencing my typing and what is being written. :-)

Thank you Kento for your guidance so far.

Hi Crystal. :)

Let's have a closer look at what you call "just is."
Please pick any sound fro your surrounding, and have a look without thinking about it; observe.

At the very moment the sound is heard, is there a hearer of sound anywhere?

A sound is heard, there is a hearer of the sound.

Where, and what is it? Can you point at the "hearer" with your finger?
Where did you point at? Would you be able to show it to me?

With eyes closed a sound is heard through the ears, i'm hearing the sound. I can show you me, the body, but I can't show you the hearer. It's confusing.

Yes, it's confusing, as the usual logic is being broken now. :)

What do you see there, the place the finger is pointing at? Do you see your own head?

I assume where I pointed is where my head is located, but I can't actually see it. With my eyes open when I point my figure back thee's seeing and an awareness of seeing, hearing,
