Round and round

Postby Young » Thu Apr 04, 2019 9:56 am

LU is focused guiding for seeing there is no real, inherent 'self' - what do you understand by this?
That the “self” as people know or believe it to be is a construct of our mind. The self and the separation that it implies is illusory.

What are you looking for at LU?
I’m looking to learn essentially or perhaps unlearn. I’m afraid I find this very difficult to put into words and the fact that the website keeps experiencing errors is making it harder to get it written down quickly but “I” believe there is an intelligence which is constant and accessible and if we can get beyond mind we can connect with it. I’m looking to explore possibilities

What do you expect from a guided conversation?
I have no expectations at all. I suppose I would like to achieve some sort of clarity but what that is or how I’d expect it to be brought about is not clear. Perhaps I’d like someone who can point me in the direction of a truth that I can understand or feel.

What is your experience in terms of spiritual practices, seeking and inquiry?
I have no real practice other than to watch my thoughts and opinions in day to day life. I like to listen to spiritual teachers and read accounts etc but I have no formal training

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

Hello "Young "
My name is Adil and i am a guide here.

We can start the journey if it is okay for you.

If you feel ready send me a message and tell me how would you like me to call you, is it "Young"?

Sending much love

Hello Paul,
Before we start i would like to share some tips to make our
dialogue smooth and effective:

1. Please write as much as you can; I would advise you to
write at least once a day, in order to keep it fresh and buid a momentum.

2. Our main focus here is on seeing through the illusion of
what we call "I," "me," or "self." Please set aside all the teachings
you've learned from books, retreats, youtube, and so on, for the sake
of not bringing bias to what we'll do during our conversation.

3. Process will be mostly answering my questions, its best efficiant if you may answer them one
by one..Please be always 100% honest with your answers
Don't choose the "right." answer, from "what comes up" There's no one here to judge or critisise.
If you are stuck with any issue, we can always take a close look at it.

4-set aside all other spiritually related materials (books, videos etc.) so that you can completely focus on your own direct experience.

5-Here's a link that shows how to use the quote function: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fAToDNh9hQ[/

6- I would suggest you read "What Liberation Unleashed is not" from this link http://www.liberationunleashed.com/about/faq/#faq-1041

If all ok let's start..

Let's start with expectations

Can you tell me more about expectations ?

What do you think will happen when you realize that there is no separate self ?

And can you tell me what comes when i say

THERE IS NO YOU! THERE NEVER WAS AND NEVER WILL BE! IN ANY FORM! EVER!

Please write what comes..
