Re: Ready!

Only thoughts know whether I am feeling my hand or the table. Do thoughts know anything? Can they? They do offer information, yes, but knowing? It is possible for a few moments to just feel it as sensation without thoughts of hand or table at all, although the mind seems to want to automatically sh...

Re: Relationships

If I imagine this, I feel both good and strange. Yes, it is liberating and it is strange because this is oposite to everything you believed up to now. Is this what you meant by weird? It is good to be aware if fear appears, doubt, akwardness or whatever - we can look into everything. Do I have to i...

Re: Ready!

I think the strongest/stickiest part left is the feeling and assumption that experience happens to 'me'. That belief is a tricky one to look through, the belief that the 'something that happens' and the 'someone to whom this happens' are like two different shoes. This is duality at its best. Same w...

Re: Ready!

Maybe I need to look more at where self seems to be, to fully release the belief. Well, take a piece of paper and write down everything where self seems to be. And then we have a deeper look. In the exercise you seem to have got stuck in the thoughts, talking about space and so on. Are eyes needed ...

Re: Ready!

Nope - it's like saying 'I'm a giraffe' - doesn't make it so LOL. Unless you believe you are a giraffe :-) It might be different if you look into the mirror and only see a giraffe, lol. So All is one or there is no separation can't be got intellectually, yes, one can believe it, but as usual there ...

Re: Relationships

I feel like an observer, like I'm watching a movie. How does it make you feel when you allow for a moment that there is no entity called self, no one who decides or plans or talks - all simply happening? Does this make you feel good, or is it strange? And what if observer and the movie would be one...

Re: Ready!

There's no way to know for sure that the thought 'causes' the action, so it must be another story. Thoughts are intricately woven - so it is always a good idea to have a closer look into the "Can it be known". Well done. I'm not really anywhere. It's just stuff happening. Action. Awaring. Thinking ...

Re: Ready!

In fact these thoughts happen most when I'm least likely to get the thing done - a kind of guilt or cajoling of myself. e.g. I really should get up now - and then not getting up for another 20 mins. So we are back to habitual thoughts and they are not the nicest and friendliest ones. The growing tr...

Re: Ready!

Oh dear, sinusitis is really very uncomfortable. Yes, one can often feel that the day passes and a lot of things got done and it just happens. At other times the feeling of effort like "I really should do it now" happens and then it feels like I do/did. The question is does this "I really should do ...

Re: Relationships

How about taking a big breath and we simply restart? :-)

When you imagine for a moment that there never was an entitiy called self who did the thinking, the deciding, the choosing, who plans all the action - how do you feel? If life would be a flow simply happening?

Love,

Re: Ready!

We are just so familiar with the 'sensation' of thought and recognise it immediately. A thought informing about a thought, lol. Say I sit down to work - you could say that I choose to engage with the work, but it just follows. Until it doesn't and I'm distracted. Then an apparent 'choice' is made t...

Re: Ready!

It is always more difficult when one is stuck in the head.... In the end it is about letting go for just a moment and not giving a damn for all the wonderful explanations, differentiations, all these wild crazy wonderful thoughts. It is like getting under their radar for a moment. It is actually qui...

Re: Ready!

But I'll look out for more 'controlling' behaviour and thoughts and see what I find. Thoughts about controlling behaviour... you know how when you have a bad cold and you feel a bit like your head is underwater and everything else seems muted? It's kind of like that. I'm going to look again tomorro...

Re: Ready!

But something I'm wondering... planning happens as part of this right? right. How do you tell the difference between the kind of planning that needs to just happen as part of being, and the kind that is caught up with the idea of a self in control? You go camping and a list is written of what to pa...
