Re: Quest for true happiness

Yes that resonates with me completely. But a thought comes what about this body, it has been there since the beginning. This person maybe just a story, but can this body be unreal? If you look up (away from the body), or close your eyes, what's left of the experience labelled 'body'? I think you wo...

Re: Quest for true happiness

Hi Tushar, Seems that we've made quite some headway already, good job. You've made some useful observations :-) There is a long story associated with this person, whether real or imagined, called Tushar. There is an experience which is happening for so many years, to a constant experiencer. Good obs...

Re: Quest for true happiness

Thanks for your reply Floris. Noted all the ground rules. Let us begin! Good, let's begin then. I'll call you Tushar, if you want it otherwise then tell me :-) When you have some quite time by yourself, please sit and close your eyes. Then look for the person/Tushar/I. Can you find this entity anyw...

Re: Quest for true happiness

Hi Tushar Sorry for the wait, but I would be happy to help out, if you like. Awakening to your true nature, as you wrote it, is outside the scope of this website. But I hope with our conversations that you will leave with some more peace of mind, and have more clarity. There are a few ground rules t...

Re: no one passing through the gateless gate

Will you write your answers here? That's always the intend, because then I can reply to it and know what's going on.
No need to write what your expectations were/are though.

Re: no one passing through the gateless gate

Thank you Skadi, So.. I get the impression that you are close to it. Often 'getting it' is often not sudden thing, but a gradual increasing clarity that there is no self, as you already have been experiencing. What do you think of that? I'd like to go through some things you said in your introductio...

Re: no one passing through the gateless gate

Could you answer the questions that I gave you in the last post?:-)

That will give me a better sense of where you are at.

Re: no one passing through the gateless gate

Hello Skadi, Nice answers! This "self" is just awareness masquerading as such. There is awareness, there is an impulse to do something, and there is a thought about that something which makes it seem as if there is a self thinking and doing, but there is not. There is just awareness happening. I lik...

Re: no one passing through the gateless gate

Hello Skadi! I am currently very engaged in a restorative practices training at work but will have time here and there to respond throughout the day and week. If you would like a more focused block of time to work with me, then Thursday and Friday of this week would be best for me, after the trainin...

Re: Disidentification

Hello Maelstrom, (would you like me to call you by this name?) Yes. I have read and seen your reply. I am ready to be guided. Good, let's get going then. In your introduction you already displayed some intellectual knowledge about what no-self is supposed to mean. That's good, but we won't be using ...

Re: no one passing through the gateless gate

Hi Skadi Sorry for the wait, but I would be happy to help out, if you like. I hope for our conversations that you will leave with some more piece of mind (that is, more lack of mind:-) ), and have more clarity. There are a few ground rules though: - It can be useful to post regularly, without too ma...

Re: Disidentification

Hi Maelstrom I see you have been waiting for a while already and would be happy to help out, if you like. You seem to be coming at it with a good state of mind. There are a few ground rules though: - It can be helpful if you try to post every day, this put you into a momentum. - Try being as honest ...

Re: Non self a love story

Goedemiddag Derk, Dank voor mailwisseling tot op heden. Het hele principe van non-self houdt me dagelijks bezig. Vond het leuk om het in het engels te doen, andere manier van uitdrukken. Wellicht nu een idee om op het Nederlands over te gaan. Ook interessant in de nuance/het detail. Ook okay voor jo...
