Self, no self, self, no self...

Postby Barney » Sat Aug 21, 2021 3:51 am

LU is focused guiding for seeing there is no real, inherent 'self' - what do you understand by this?
There is no real self, but it is not always realised.

What are you looking for at LU?
Only liberation. I don't know what else to write to consume the 200 word requirement so will just write as it comes! 122 characters that was, now 151 haha...... I am very grateful for this opportunity to talk to an self realised 'person' however have some dissonance in doing so after listening to so much non-duality chat that talk about there is no way to help oneself to realisation which resonate here, yet here I am looking for some help. Look forward to talking. Love, Barney

What do you expect from a guided conversation?
I don't really know but there is a hope it will help this identity dissolve. I'm not much of a talker but will do my best to let some words drop, so thank you very much for this opportunity and openess you offer here.

What is your experience in terms of spiritual practices, seeking and inquiry?
A 'glimpse' 10+years ago has led to many practices, drugs and travels and other forms of trying to return to what was revealed then. Self has become more transparent yet appears to remain.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how willing are you to question any currently held beliefs about 'self? 11

Good morning!

Apologies for the one month waiting for a guide.

My name is Stacy and I can be your guide, if you would like.

One thing I want to make very clear up front is that with me, you must post every day. If you know yourself and your schedule are such that you cannot do this, tell me, "no," and someone else can guide you, please.
Yes, if once in a while you must post later, please post a note telling me when you will return.

If you haven't already read the disclaimer, please read it now and just confirm to me that you have read it. Here is the link.

http://liberationunleashed.com/disclaimer-2/

Also please read “Liberation Unleashed is not …” in the FAQ’s of LU. Here is the link.

http://liberationunleashed.com/about/faq/#faq-1041

Some housekeeping guidelines:

1. Post at least once a day, or every second day. If you need more time, or are unable to post for several days, just write a quick post on your thread to let me know please.

2. There is no one judging answers given, so please be 100% honest in your answers and inquiry.

3. This exploration is based on actual experience (AE) - smell, taste, sound, sensation, color and observed thoughts. Long-winded analytical and philosophical answers are best avoided and may even hinder progress. This is not a self-improvement process. There is no ‘self’ to improve.

4. Put aside all other teachings, philosophies, rituals, practices, books/reading and so on for the remainder of this investigation. Really put all your effort and attention in to seeing this reality, as it is. If you have a daily meditation practice, it is fine to continue that but is not necessary for this exploration.

Technology is not perfect and sometimes there is a glitch which can wipe out your responses. It is advisable that you copy and paste questions asked into Word, answer them there and then copy and paste them to your thread. Always save a copy of what you have done, it will save time in the long run!

To begin with, so that we both become aware of what your expectations are about this exploration. In your own words (not from actual experience, but just honest answers), could you please answer the 4 following questions:

How will life change?
How will you change?
What will be different?
What is missing?


Throughout this exploration I would like you to answer all questions that I have written in blue text. Please answer all questions even if I miss using the blue text.

Please answer questions individually, remembering to use the quote function to highlight the question being answered.

Below is a link to the video with instructions on using the Quote Function. Please watch it. Use the PREVIEW button to make sure your text looks right before you hit "SUBMIT."

What would you like for me to call you? What time zone are you in, please?

Loving,
~ Stacy
