Re: Hi :) Can somebody scratch me

Hi Sarah Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? No, there is no separate “ I “, “ Me “ or “ Self “. There never was, only thought saying there was. Explain in detail what the illusion of separate self is, when it starts and how it wo...

Re: Hi :) Can somebody scratch me

Hi Sarah Yes it's clear, I don't exist and everything is just happening/unfolding without a doer, thinker or seer. I experienced "self death" before, when it was seen there was no thinker of thoughts. I came here to check if something was still hiding, and you found it. I'd never looked at sensation...

Re: Hi :) Can somebody scratch me

Hi Sarah Just reading the experiment freaked me out, Lol. Had another one of those, "shit I don't exist" moments. I didn't reply yesterday as it took all my energy just trying to function somewhat "sanely" around other people. Stand in front of a bigger mirror. (1) First, close the eyes and feel the...

Re: Hi :) Can somebody scratch me

Hi Sarah And what do you notice about the exercises? Hand on the table, there is just the dull pressure on the palm. the mind labels, or tries to explain. There's not a hand and a table, just the experience. The same with hearing as well, just the experience of sound, no hearer and no labeled source...

Re: Hi :) Can somebody scratch me

Hi Sarah In direct experience " seeing " and " hearing " I agree are just that. There is just the experience of it in the now. They exist together as the totality of the particular subjective experience. Also I can cover my ears or my eyes (in direct experience) which without thought or knowledge cr...

Re: Hi :) Can somebody scratch me

Do you mean thoughts make decisions? Do you experience thoughts thinking?
The thoughts are an after effect of what is already unconsciously decided. The mind (thought process) is just pumping out thoughts from memory, past experience, current enviroment and emotional state.

Re: Hi :) Can somebody scratch me

Hi Sarah Previous post continued.. What is doing the seeing? What is being seen? What does "seeing" consists of? Just the light from an object hitting the eye, and being interpreted by the brain. Then the " Mind " may or may not stick a label on it. Describe the actual, direct experience of seeing. ...

Re: Hi :) Can somebody scratch me

Hi Sarah Have you been able to find, a ‘self’ that is the ‘experiencer’? No Or a self that is the doer, or can control what happens? No Or a self that ‘makes’ decisions? No, decisions are either thought or automatic. Or a self who ‘does the thinking’? No, just the thought process. No thinker. Lets h...

Re: Hi :) Can somebody scratch me

Hi Sarah
I might tackle these tomorrow if that's ok, long day at work. The short answer is "No" and "just seeing" lol, but there's quite a few questions there so I should answer in more individual detail.
Cheers, Mac

Re: Hi :) Can somebody scratch me

Hi Sarah, hope your weekends going well. Do you identify on purpose? Do you choose not to identify? No, the thought process identifies, or chooses (if I can use that word) not to identify. Is there any area where you feel you are in control? E.g. Free will, decisions etc No. It's funny I thought of ...

Re: Hi :) Can somebody scratch me

Hi Sarah Do you intentionally bring any of these thoughts? Or do they come and go on their own? If you do bring them from where and how? Thoughts arrive on their own, if you are doing some type of analytical thinking there is a feeling of more control but this is just thoughts responding to a partic...

Re: Hi :) Can somebody scratch me

Hi Sarah Thanks for that, the link to the article didn't work. It just said "page not found", but I will do my best to answer your questions. At first glance there does seem to be a sense of self at the centre of experience, but upon investigation it cannot be found. It has no shape, colour ,texture...
