Re: Quest for true happiness

Hi, just wanted to change a part of my responses to this: Good one. So if you look at an 'object' such as your hand, is there a body or something inside the body found to be aware of that? I trust that you don't find it. So then, how is the hand known? If there isn't something separate found that is...

Re: Quest for true happiness

Ha ha. Who is there to experience this energy field? No one. This is. :-) A question pops up in my mind " If there is no experiencer, then does that mean this energy field never had any choice? This energy field was just an observer? Is this energy field real or this is another imagination? " - Cho...

Re: Quest for true happiness

A baby boy has blessed our lives, that is why I am responding late. Wow, that's great, I'm happy for you. I hope you enjoy your days a lot!! And respond whenever you want of course. This personal story is a collection of memories which is superimposed on this person 'Tushar'. I have no memory of an...

Re: Quest for true happiness

When I say Tushar - I mean this personal image/story which we associate with our birth name and we believe to be us. What I meant by mentioning the sleep state was:- that I am certain that in my sleep state there was no Tushar, but I was. Thus believing this personal story to be us definitely seems...

Re: Quest for true happiness

Hi Tushar, appreciating your openness in this inquiry :-) Owner of the experience has been created by mind and conditioning. In quietude, there is no owner of the experience, experience is happening Nice Body creates an image of inside and outside. But once eyes are closed and it is asked can an ins...

Re: Quest for true happiness

Hi Tushar, good work. I have nothing to reply to your messages as they are spot on. Lets use the term experience, to mean the totality of all that you experience (i.e. sounds, thoughts, sensations, etc). Then please answer the following questions about your experience. - Can an owner of experience b...

Re: Quest for true happiness

Good work Tushar! I can't locate myself at any point in this body means that I am not this body. There must be some entity to whom this experience is happening, that entity is myself. The entity is having this experience which is being made possible by this mind-body mechanism Yes good, there is mor...

Re: Quest for true happiness

Apologies Floris for replying late. Thanks so much, Floris! Not a problem, I'm also a little late this time. And you're welcome! No I am not the body. I can't locate myself at any particular point in the body. And what do you make of this? Or with other words, what does that mean, that you can't lo...

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...
