Thanks again Vali, I will send you a private message later on with my facebook account so you can invite me. Thanks for the offer. I look forward to exploring further.

Re: Looking for a guide

Thanks, and good morning Vali. 5) Describe decision, intention, free will, choice and control. What makes things happen? How does it work? What are you responsible for? Give examples from experience. Decision Decisions imply that there is an "I" who is making the decisions. Since there is no self, t...

Re: Looking for a guide

1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? No, there isn't, and never was. 2) Explain in detail what the illusion of separate self is, when it starts and how it works from your own experience. Describe it fully as you see it now. The...

Re: Looking for a guide

Sorry for the delayed response. In direct experience can you find a direct connection between thought and action? Remember in this process we're concerned with only what can be observed directly rather than based on ideas, received knowledge or conceptual thought. Try a few simple exercises slowly a...

Re: Looking for a guide

How do you know that it is the brain that has started to accept this? Is this something you have observed in direct experience or is this an idea based on received knowledge? I would have to say it's an idea based on received knowledge. I "know" thoughts trigger brain activity which is measurable b...

Re: Looking for a guide

What is the "I" that has been seeing clearer? It's the brain which has started to accept there is no "I" in a real, physical sense, only as an abstract concept, and which is starting to formulate the consequences and implications of this realisation. How would you describe this "seeing clearer"? Wh...

Re: Looking for a guide

Do you have any doubts about this? No, I've definitely been seeing clearer since we started. Or is there still doubts at all that there is a self? Is there anything else you would like to explore further? In our exploration, a lot of times I observed that while no, there is no things as a "self" as...

Re: Looking for a guide

Hi vali, sorry for the delayed reply. I had to take some time to absorb the latest observations. How are you feeling now compared to when we started this dialogue? I feel pretty good, and think I've definitely made progress. If I say to you now "There is NO separate self, I, me or ego existing in an...

Re: Looking for a guide

Is there maybe another (specific) way to look at this that you'd like me to try?

Re: Looking for a guide

Watch throughout the day what happens when choices arise to do this or that. Try pausing and see if you can find the point where a choice or decision is made. How does the decision happen? Is there a chooser? I didn't really observe any choices being made. It seemed to me that pretty much everythin...

Re: Looking for a guide

Try doing something active like walking. Can you find a controller that controls the walking? Do the same for other activities and see what you find. Oh this is a fun one. Tonight I drove to the squash club, played several squash games, drove back, put my clothes in the laundry and took a shower. T...
