Re: Do you want a guide?

Jakob, I have had some trouble myself with the posting. I am sorry about that. These feelings of 'aliveness', that does not equate to a separate you, as you said. This feeling of aliveness is what is. The rest which you mentioned, are simply more thoughts getting in the way (there must be something ...

Re: Looking for a guide to awakening

That's great, Ivan. Recognizing thoughts for what they are is a big step in looking. Can you do the same thing in a smaller bit of experience, but in greater detail? For example, simply sitting at the computer and reading from the screen (or something simple like that). What you would usually say is...

Re: Do you want a guide?

Jakob, I am sorry for not letting you know that I was going to be offline for a few days, due to traveling. I thought I had already written, but I see now that I didn't.

Please give me a day, and I will reply in more detail later.

Re: Looking for a guide to awakening

Sorry for the delay, Ivan. I am glad you would like to continue. When you say you are seeing glimpses if it, can you explain more what you mean? Did you do the exercise I wrote before? Noticing what is happening, and thoughts about it? Please do that a few times in the day, and write me about it in ...

Re: Looking for a guide to awakening

Sorry that you're feeling that there's no progress or any effect. I just don't understand what I'm supposed to be saying when you say "look really carefully". It's like you're expecting me to say something really specific and I can't get the "right" answer. My apologies for not being clear. When I s...

Re: Do you want a guide?

I think I understand. Let me give you the example of watching an exciting movie. We know it is not real. We know they are actors playing a role, enacting a made-up story. However, while watching, we can allow ourselves to get caught up in it, to let ourselves 'feel' the story. We do not sit there te...

Re: Looking for a guide to awakening

The moment when I got out of my chair could be called making the decision. Ivan, there is a difference in presuming an answer, and seeing it. Was there a moment when a decision was made, or was it thoughts, impulses, more thoughts telling you that you did it? Look more carefully at it. Well, with a...

Re: Looking for a guide to awakening

Throughout this whole ordeal, there is a persistent feeling that I am the creator of this impulse/thought of making the tea. I can't see how I'm NOT. If I'm not making his choice, who is? Ivan, try to look closer at the process. We have to try to separate thoughts from reality, and the above two se...

Re: Looking for a guide to awakening

In the meantime, look at choices, and see if you can see the process. How it happens, if there is an actual decision being made or not, and if there is a decision-maker. Pick any moment where you think you're making a choice, and look at it carefully. Start with something simple, eg, picking up a pe...

Thank you, Jakob.

I myself am also a little busy for a day or so, just letting you know in case you post something earlier.

Re: Do you want a guide?

Okay, let's see that. First of all, we have to disregard all that you've seen and heard. That is simply knowledge we accumulate, and it is not useful now. Check into your experience right now. That is where you have to see. Note that you cannot see a "no-self"; one cannot see the absence of somethin...
