Re: What's here?

Hey Veda, Lovely to read your post. We can certainly dialogue further. I thought what was written by Joan Tollifson would be of interest to you:- What is meant by no self? When we talk of no self, it seems important to clarify what exactly we mean. To me, it doesn’t mean we are no longer a condition...

Re: What's here?

PS: The idea that freedom is in the future, is a fly trap. What future? "Rather than asking if you can be ever be free - because ‘ever’ is a huge amount of future time – ask if you can be free in this moment. The only place you where you can or need to be free is this moment. Not the rest of your li...

Re: What's here?

Hi Veda, ???? You have brought back old desires and expectations and the idea that there is somewhere to get! There has never been a Vedaself, ever, so nothing is going to change except your perception. Yes, you're right I do have a desire to get somewhere - what I'm looking for is the change in per...

Re: What's here?

Hello Veda, And it was difficult in the sense that trying to put aside a lifetime of interpretation by thought is a real challenge. Even when I was able to just look around without applying labels and just see colour, I noticed that thought wanted to turn this "seamless whole" into a 'something', a ...

Re: What's here?

Hey Veda, You would have no idea what this cup is, except for your past learning. Do you, then, really see it? No of course you don't see it - you see the veil, the story. And clearly there is a value in this that enables us to function in the world, how to drink from the cup and not drop it, etc. B...

Re: What's here?

Hey Veda, WHEN does the memory actually appear? Memory does not appear in the past but only in the present. As I type this I see that EVERYTHING can only appear in the present. The present is all there is. So whether it's memory about the past or imagination about the future it all happens in the on...

Re: What's here?

Hey Veda, I hope all is well with you? I am feeling much better and looking forward to continuing our exploration. In this last week I've found myself using some of the skills you've introduced and they have been wonderful. For example, seeing that all feeling is just the AE of sensation and thought...

Re: What's here?

Hi Veda, Lovely looking with all the body exercises! Does the body experience? Or is the concept of the body ‘experienced’? No the body doesn't experience. Wow, this is a big one. If the body doesn't experience, what's doing the experiencing? - and I can see that the answer is nothing and no-one - e...

Re: What's here?

Hey Veda, Is there any link between the sensation and the sight ie colour? In other words is the sensation actually ‘coming from’ the sight (colour labelled as ‘hand’), or only thought and mental constructs link them? There is no link between the sensation of 'hand' and the image of 'hand'. In fact ...

Re: What's here?

Hey Veda, What does the word/label ‘body’ ACTUALLY refer to? The label 'body' simply refers to the AE of sensation, (and to a lesser degree sound, smell, taste and when eyes are open of color) that thought alone divides into 'parts' like leg, arm etc - and then this same thought also coalesces these...

Re: What's here?

Hi Veda, If you can't choose what you're aware of, then what else is there to choose? Absolutely nothing. And as I sit with this, it seems to me that the only possible conclusion is that 1) if awareness is constant (and it is) and 2) if awareness can't be turned off (and it can't) then surely that m...

Re: What's here?

Good morning Veda, Okay, so we have looked at the idea of a controller, decider and chooser...which all have to do with the idea of doership...so let's look at the idea of a doer, of doership. The idea of being the doer is the the foundation of the idea of being an independent autonomous separate se...

Re: What's here?

Hey Veda, Thought says that the foot is ‘down there’. So presumably you are above your foot. Where are you? Sit quietly, close your eyes, take a few breaths and locate where you feel yourself to be. Locate yourself vertically in the body, horizontally to the left or right, and depth, how far in. Fee...
