Re: Long time seeker - No-one-wannabe

OK. 5) a) Describe decision, intention, free will, choice and control. What makes things happen? How does it work? Give examples from your own recent experiences to how things happen and how things work. There is no way to know how they all work. When "I decide" to open or close my hand, it simply h...

Re: Long time seeker - No-one-wannabe

Hi Kay! 1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? There is no "self, I, me, you, individual" to be found in Actual (Raw) Experience. There never was. Never will be. This is the grand illusion! This sounded so weird and impossible bef...

Re: Long time seeker - No-one-wannabe

HereNow points to the current and evident knowledge of experience (X), no matter what it is appearing as. Past and memory go hand-in-hand as almost everybody believes that a memory thought is referring to something that has happened; that a memory thought is a different thought than a non-memory th...

Re: Long time seeker - No-one-wannabe

Hey Kay, And if you drop the labels of ‘thought’, ‘colour’ and ‘sensation’…what remains ie what actually IS? What remains is Raw experience (X) arising, with no thought overlay. And is it actually arising…of it simply IS? Since thought is X…does X actually arise and subside? What I mean by "arising"...

Re: Long time seeker - No-one-wannabe

I want to comment: You explained it here much better than I could: And the kicker here, is that it seems that X is experiencing life as a person. There is no person…so X is appearing as every ‘thing’…but is none of those things. Just like a night time dream. You are aware of everything that happens ...

Re: Long time seeker - No-one-wannabe

Hey Kay, Sorry I t took so long to answer. I've been doing it ony phone and I missed it. I wasn't getting the email notifications for some reason. I re-subscribed to the thread to see if it fixed it. Here we go: Is there any connection between the felt sensations and the image in the mirror? Or just...

Re: Long time seeker - No-one-wannabe

Hey Kay, Again, the Compulsion to Find Meaning (to understand everything) was "throwing me off." Second guessing... For example: "Body is AE of Thought. - Hmmm, but if that's the case, what about old memories? What about this? What about that? That's all Thought. AE of Thought... So, there is no sep...

Re: Long time seeker - No-one-wannabe

Hey Kay, I'm working through the exercises, but here's where things get difficult... So let's look at this...to make sure this is clear. The belief that others are a separate self and are aware, is based on two key assumptions which seem to overlap: 1. You are a person that is aware. 2. There is an ...

Re: Long time seeker - No-one-wannabe

Hey Kay,

Awesome. This "body" and "others" thoughts definitely need to be looked at.

It's getting late here so I'll work on those exercises tomorrow and report back.

Thanks!

Re: Long time seeker - No-one-wannabe

I just noticed that I hadn't hit "post" on this below: Did you find a chooser, decider or controller in any of the exercises that looked at this? Go back and do the hand flipping exercise, the drink exercise and the what you are aware of exercise and tell me if there is a chooser, decider or control...

Re: Long time seeker - No-one-wannabe

Hey Kay, Here's the answer to Okay, so let’s have a look at the body. Sit with eyes closed for about 15 minutes. Paying attention only to the pure sensations, without relying on thoughts or mental images: Can it be known how tall the body is? No. Not in Actual Experience. Does the body have a weight...

Re: Long time seeker - No-one-wannabe

Hey Kay, [quote]Always check questions with AE…it is by doing this you get your own answers. What is the thought/question asking? Does the answer come from further thoughts or as AE?[/quote] This is very helpful. One thing I do is label "Sound"... "Color"... "Sensation"... But this is very good as w...
