Re: The Road

1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? Until the question was asked and I started looking I had not even questioned what had never been challenged. Having now spent 12 days looking directly, looking everywhere I can find no separ...

Re: The Road

If there is no real entity, as you say, what will happen to the entity? What can happen to a unicorn? Was there ever an entity, I, ego, to take credit? What will happen? That is the million dollar question Ilona and I can only speculate as I don’t have a Google earth map of the "I scape" before and...

Re: The Road

So what is this separate self then, what does it do, what is its function? Where is the I that runs the show? Describe what you find in experience. The body does what it does, the senses process input and mind / brain does its thinking and feeling. I don't know if there is intent … I seem to know n...

Re: The Road

Let's have a closer look here Lift your left arm above the head before reading further. Did it happen? How did it happen? Was there a decision made? Was there a decision maker involved? For a day remember this exercise repeat and observe how it happens. What comes first: an impulse, action or thoug...

Re: The Road

Altered states are great, but it's not about that. It's not about better states. It's about knowing that in every state, there is truth of being underneath all states. Yes, truth is independent of state ... thoughts or feelings do not alter the undeniable truth. The truth I observe is that life is ...

Re: The Road

Please take time and tell me, what is it that you are expecting? Is it a state, sensation, aha moment, is there something that you are looking for? Be completely honest here, bring all your expectations up. Make a list. Expectation is more definite, stronger than wish or desire and suggests there i...

Re: The Road

Find the sense of being, aliveness, does that need to have an identity? Is identity a thought or feeling, or sensation? How would you describe that? In order to answer I need to know what identity means. Identity is a label … it isn’t really a thing but rather a catch all concept that (depending on...

Re: The Road

I spent the entire Saturday on a waterblaster at home cleaning the retaining walls and concrete pathways. The sun shone and I worked like a robot for eight hours ... occasionally I'd come out of the state of automatically methodically working along to move a plant or a table ... at those times of th...

Re: The Road

The fear is a protective mechanism, can you see that? Yes I can see that ... uncharted territory, no previous frame of reference, delusion possible ... got to keep it simple. This enquiry/journey calls into question everything I've ever known and assumed about identity. But what is there to protect...

The Road

LU is focused guiding for seeing there is no real, inherent 'self' - what do you understand by this? I'll start by saying a thank you for this forum - to answer the question: that "self" as a discrete real and tangible thing is a fiction does not and never did exist. Unexamined acceptance of and be...
