Re: Letting go

Greetings Bananafish It might only be a tiny thing regarding expression, but why do you say "All things rise and fall in awareness. " instead of "All things rise and fall"? For me, this word "awareness" doesn't need to be put to express reality. Could you elaborate? I feel it is an important distinc...

Re: Letting go

Hi Bananafish, I was just thinking of you when this popped up :) This needs elaboration. It sounds like an intellectual explanation or theory. It's not clear. Do "my eyes" exist? Do awareness "follow" anything? Then, are awareness and what is followed separate? I feel we have covered most of the asp...

Re: Letting go

Greetings Bananafish! I decided to take a few days off from the pressure of replying back and the clarity came as soon as I did :) Here are my responses: It starts with my basic judgement of liking and disliking which creates the illusion. With judgement comes the judge and the duality of the observ...

Re: Letting go

Greetings Bananafish ! Here are my responses: 1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? No it is an illusion. It appears to exist within thoughts. 2) Explain in detail what the illusion of separate self is, when it starts and how it ...

Re: Letting go

Hi Bananafish ! Here's what I want to ask. I'm sure you've answered this before, but again I want to make sure that you feel you've experientially seen it in the course of this conversation; so, here you go: Does a separate, concrete entity called "I," "self," or "me" exist in any kind of form? It d...

Re: Letting go

Hello Bananafish ! I think I need to do a recalibration of the words I have been using to describe my experiences. We have been quite clear about the illusion of 'me' and how it is created within the context of the thought. We had also seen how thoughts are ripples that take the 'attention' away fro...

Re: Letting go

Hi Bananafish ! Can you describe it in a simpler way ... in a way even a child can understand? What is the "awareness" you've been telling about? Well , first of all I have to assume that this child experientially knows about stillness/ here and now/what is and is not speculating about the concept o...

Re: Letting go

Greetings Bananafish ! Welcome back from the retreat! :) I'm glad that you got some insight from the LOOKing during it. Thanks ! Just a couple of things that I want to ask ... Because I knew that I can do this whenever want. Do you intentionally do that? What is the subject? Is there a seer of that ...

Re: Letting go

Dear Bananafish, I am back from a long and refreshing session of Looking ! Coincidently, the Vipassana retreat I attended was for doing just that. Looking. Looking at the sensations that the thought currents conjured up. And I am happy to report that I was able to see the transition point between he...

Re: Letting go

Good Morning Bananafish ! Can a thought analyse something? Look at the experience of thought here and now, and please describe how. "It moves in a constricted view within the illusion of I." Can you elaborate? I feel both these questions are related. I will try to describe both: Awareness 'latches o...

Re: Letting go

Greetings Bananafish ! Clearly, the clarity has nothing to do with 'me' :)) What is the "me?" Can you describe? The one that analyzes, evaluates and weighs the response. The me thought. Alert Stillness. Can it be not still? Is it static? What does "alert" mean here? By stillness - I mean more of an ...

Re: Letting go

Greetings Bananafish ! Glad to see clarity in your posts. :) Just a bit more questions from me ... Clearly, the clarity has nothing to do with 'me' :)) Lake and ripples are all part of awareness ! An awareness that is becoming sharper :) Can you elaborate on the "becoming sharper" part? There is an ...
