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...

Re: Non self a love story

Hi Derk! I do! At this moment life is so hectic. Just divorced, bought a new house and now I am in the middle of renovating the house, while the kids are with me. Work goes on also:-) Love it, though little time to do everything.... managing okay and feeling good though. Still doing the work most of...

Re: Non self a love story

Hi Derk, Sorry, I forgot to reply earlier. Just a note; beliefs, theories, convictions, conclusions and such can be useful at times. But often don't do much for us, they do not tend to help to shift things as we would like, and don't tend to help us discover more. It's perfectly fine to just not kno...

Re: freedom from the character I've created to protect myself

Things have definitely changed. There have some ‘difficult’ situations, conversations, moments like there were before, but these things are not felt to be as personal as they were before. If there is any imagined suffering, then the sense of identity is questioned and the illusion is seen through. ...

Re: Non self a love story

Hello Derk, This is still a difficult one... there is a certain consciousness, a storage of memories, beliefs, that is unique, able to read and respond... question is whether it can be personalized as a self. I am positive that it disturbes the harmony that is our true nature ... and to be honest my...

Re: Non self a love story

Hello Derk, The whole idea of Derk is changing all the time, nothing factual, indeed only based on memories, beliefs and feelings. The concept of Derk is in a major shift at the moment... thoughts and feelings changing... proof that nothing is 'true' at that level. Development is all about letting g...
