Re: After many books/talks, I feel an approaching, elvelopin

Hi Susan, Apologies, a work firewall is preventing me from accessing the site. I'll try this from my phone. I won't address your questions, as doing so won't bring you any further. I will continue to point, and you observe. Try this exercise: Still your mind, meditate if you can. A thought will aris...

Re: After many books/talks, I feel an approaching, elvelopin

Hi Susan, Welcome back. Its like I know in advance that I am going to stop the thought and it just cuts off (because I have know I am going to stop it - I'm able to cut it off). I tell myself that I am going to have a thought and then cut it off - so I do. During a particular thought, and when you d...

Re: After many books/talks, I feel an approaching, elvelopin

Can you please give me an example of how you can stop a thought midstream?

What or who is the I allegedly stopping that thought?

Thanks,
Kevin

Re: After many books/talks, I feel an approaching, elvelopin

Hi Susan, Interesting observations. You mentioned "Because I've already made the decision" as part of your answer, and I'm curious as to know who is this "I" that has made a decision. You straightened it out for me a bit, but what the heck, I'll ask anyway. Who or what is this "I" that has made a de...

Re: After many books/talks, I feel an approaching, elvelopin

Thank you, Susan.

There are no wrong answers, so I hope that relieves some of the anxiety.
Now, that said, I'd like you to go through the exercise again, with each object, and tell me exactly where the "choice point" was where an apparent decision is being made.



Thanks,
Kevin

Re: After many books/talks, I feel an approaching, elvelopin

Hi Susan, That's great. Nice tidying up there. Let's take a closer look at the phenomenon of choice. Take two objects/possibilities, of which you might ordinarily choose either e.g. coffee or tea, blue pen or black pen, salt and pepper, then sit and see if you can find the choice-point where you cou...

Re: After many books/talks, I feel an approaching, elvelopin

Sorry for the delay, Susan, I got tied up in some family stuff. Thanks for the responses to that, and I'm glad you enjoyed the video. A couple of tidying up matters: Although it does feel like it is in my head (thoughts/instructions). Can you elaborate on this for me? A voice I hear in my head. What...

Re: After many books/talks, I feel an approaching, elvelopin

Hi Susan, Great observations so far. Loss and sadness aren't bad signs. They are just energy. Please feel them fully. Here is an interesting exercise on control. Take a look at this video first (just the delivery, the Q and A is interesting, but not critical. http://youtu.be/ih6f-0T2Ow0 Select one o...

Re: After many books/talks, I feel an approaching, elvelopin

Hi Susan, Good answers to the top questions. Let's take a look at self as the experiencer: Another key angle that is taken is about the role of the self as the observer, experiencer, witness, or perceiver. This can be questioned as such: In direct experience, can you find an “I” that experiences exp...

Re: After many books/talks, I feel an approaching, elvelopin

Hi Susan, Good observations. I'm heartened that you feel sadness and emptiness when you hear there is no I. It suggests you take it seriously, and understand there is a perceived loss involved with that understanding. Let's take a look at self as the experiencer: Another key angle that is taken is a...

Re: After many books/talks, I feel an approaching, elvelopin

Hi Susan, Thanks for your answers. What are your expectations for this process? To experience what is, in the absence of personality. To let go of attachment to what others think and say. To discover and be at ease with who/what I ‘truly Am’ without the emotional attachments that ‘seem’ to cause dis...

Re: After many books/talks, I feel an approaching, elvelopin

Hi Susan,
I did not receive a reply.
Web glitch, it happens.
I encourage people to write observations on a word program, then copy and paste it in here.
That way you don't lose it entirely.
Best,
Kevin
