Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

OK Tatyana, thank you.

So is there any remaining confusion?

Hello Mark,

No, no confusion is left. Just pure relief how everything is just imagination at play. Such freedom, such lightness.

Love!

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

The mind was confused trying to put the seen into words. Let's get to grips with the "mind" issue. We can only report on what is directly observed. Can you observe an entity called mind that tries to do things? No, just thoughts which were called "mind", labeled "confused". To see this clearly let'...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Hello Mark,

a question from another guide:

You mentioned feeling confused.

What is it that is confused? What is the confusion about?

The mind was confused trying to put the seen into words.

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

I can see how funny that is because it's like it wants to win something, or get somewhere fast, get the prize of being enlightened. Right! Good to notice that. Is seeing through the separate self a prize? What is it that wins the prize? No, no prize. Nothing wins anything. These are just concepts. ...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Hello Mark, I want to be honest about something I noticed after I read the last questions of yours. A story how bored the mind is with these questions swirling in spiral is going on in it. Also it is tired with looking for the right words so no more questions are required. And I can see how funny th...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Two of the strongest associations people have is with "body" and "mind". We talk about these things constantly as if they are me or mine: "I hate my body" or "My mind won't shut up" etc. If we sit quietly and look for either body or mind -- what do we find? I've really struggled with the body part ...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Yes, language is tricky isn't it!? Mind in my direct experience is what connects the thoughts, sensations and feelings into stories. It creates links between these objects and tells a story about them. These stories could be either taken in a "positive" or in a "negative" way. What you say here Tat...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Hello Tatanya, a question from a fellow guide: I also see how I am not as the most people acting from the mind anymore. I see when it tries to take the driver seat and I politely ask it to move away. What is "mind" in direct experience? What is it that asks mind to move away? thanks. How interestin...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Hi, Mark, Such a deep inspection is going on in the mind with all these question. Love it! 1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? There is no and has never been real separation of the Self. It's just the thoughts, sensations and f...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Thank you for your patience Tatanya. It's not an issue at all. Patience is my nature, there is no hurry to get anywhere anyway. And also I am surprised how the answers to these questions come to my mind so flawlessly but I was feeling that I was so close, yet something minuscule was missing which I...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Thanks for the clarification Tatanya. Can a thought evolve? Are some thoughts better than other thoughts? What is it that makes the evaluation? Are thoughts self aware? No, that's the accumulated evolutionary experience up until now which we witness. the majority of beings are still living in suffe...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Right. Pumping thoughts is a nice analogy! Thanks, I just realized that a few weeks ago and was amazed by the way the picture of that popped up in the mind. Can I ask -- what is it that "evolves"? What is your direct experience of "brain" or of "the planet"? thanks! That which evolves, so to speak,...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Explain in detail what the illusion of a separate self is, when it starts and how it works from your own experience. Describe it fully as you see it now. thanks! To me the illusion is born from the conditioning of the mind in today's society. Since the beginning of one's life living with parents an...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Wow, such a relief to realize even my decisions and choices are not made by anyone. They aren't a product of a person's plans and desires. Right. Can an image make a decision? No, absolutely not. An image is just an image not able to do anything. The label "Me" refers to this thing that words canno...
