Re: Nothing to see here

Hi Noses, I know you have been busy, so let's keep it simple and have a fresh look. Is there a 'you' that you can find in your experience? What do you identify most as you? If there is a 'you' that does the looking then see that the looking itself is not 'you.' Looking and searching are looking and ...

Re: Nothing to see here

It's like the attempt to determine who is the receiver is the feeling itself. Little catch-22 there, huh? Good! Similar to the observation that a knife cannot cut itself and the eye cannot see itself. Let's make up a funny scenario here: the knife may realize, very ordinarily, that it could never c...

Re: Nothing to see here

Good work Noses! How are things going in your investigation? We have to get a handle on this experience of being a doer, a looker, and an investigator. You can see that the doing is not you, just as you can see that looking is not you and investigating is not you. All of these things are part of our...

Re: Nothing to see here

I will respond sooner from now on. Don't worry about it; take the time you need. Was just checking in :) A sound happens and the head swivels to look in that direction. Responses to questions are voiced automatically. Itches are scratched without thinking. Good! And then you see how the 'I' thought...

Hi Noses,

Just reaching out since I haven’t heard from you in several days. Are you still interested in continuing?

Best,

Re: Nothing to see here

I wouldn't say we are necessarily looking for the 'I' or trying to find something we are not already aware of. No need to go searching for the 'I' if you already feel like you are the 'I." This is interesting, let me check that I understand this. Do you mean if there is already the experience of "I...

Re: Nothing to see here

Apologies, Noses.

It was a long day at work today, so I am going to get some sleep and will respond to your reply after :)

Best,

Re: Nothing to see here

Good stuff, Noses :) Try this... Close one eye and notice where you feel located. Now close the other eye. Are you in one spot? Two spots? Does your location feel like it changes depending on which eye is open? I wouldn't say we are necessarily looking for the 'I' or trying to find something we are ...

Re: Nothing to see here

Good work! What I want you to do is look at the experience of being a doer and a seer—being in control. Do you create thoughts, intentions, or actions? Do they spontaneously arise? Have a look. Write what is most true for you, whatever that is. Here is an exercise for you if you’d like to take it on...

Re: Nothing to see here

Thank you for your intro :) If you'd like, we can have a focused investigation into this thing we call 'I'--an apparent thing that supposedly rides around in our heads and makes decisions. Let's see if some more clarity can arise for you :) Throughout this investigation I'd like you to look only in ...

Looking after Seeing No Self

Hey there. I have seen through no self, but through way of negation. I see every day constantly that there is nothing here that I can grab onto that is self. However, all of the fear and what not that comes up with that realization is still here and it has been growing. There is this inexplicable du...

Re: I am so close

When I engage with others I see them as being hypnotized, like they're under a spell. Because I now know exactly what that spell is like. Through several social encounters over the last few days I've seen how "my own separate self" can no longer hypnotize me into relating to people from the position...

Re: I am so close

And I don't have any feeling of jumping up for joy, shouting from a rooftop, or screaming hallelujah! haha. I feel like Frodo Baggins from Lord of the Rings who just got home from an arduous, crushing, awe-inspiring, tedious, depressing, exciting, defeating, triumphant journey who just arrived back ...

Re: I am so close

When I sit by myself I can't be fooled anymore to believe in the existence of a separate self. All of the usual markers of an illusory separate self are "objects" in the same way that the computer screen is an object. That is, it is being witnessed without an observer. I'm not behind the eyes. Consc...
