Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, 3) How does it feel to see this? What is the difference from before you started this dialogue? Please report from the past few days. I just wanted to add that I’ve noticed a lack of interest in ‘clock time’ which I was quite attached to before. The days just unfold as they do, without ‘me...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, 1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? There is no separate entity, 'me' or 'I' and never was. 2) Explain in detail what the illusion of separate self is, when it starts and how it works from your own experience. Descri...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien,

As much as I would love to continue our dialogue I think the point has been reached where I can go no further.
Searching/seeking is over.

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, Let me know what you find. This an exercise that I pretty much do 100 times a day. I go to the sensation behind the eyes- that sense of 'me'. The sensation is just that- a sensation. A sensation cannot think, cannot see, cannot sense, and is not me. The sensation, coupled with thoughts, i...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien,

Clarification: there is just feeling, tasting, smelling, sensing, hearing, experiencing, observing etc- not two things (eg taste and tasting)

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, But what is the experience of the now moving along the line of time? There isn't. There is just the ever present 'now'. To suggest the now moves along a line of time introduces a past now and a future now. How fast the present moment is actually moving? It isn't moving- it just 'is' now. ...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, What is time? Time is a man-made construct to 'package' constant change or life unfolding. How time is experienced? As arising thoughts about a past or a future- happening 'now' What is past and future? Labels/thoughts. How past or future is experienced? As thoughts ABOUT 'past' and 'futu...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, How do you feel about seeing that there is no self? Interesting question. I could say "I' feel this or that but there is no 'I'- just thoughts about 'feelings'. I'm intrigued more than anything. Are there still doubts? If yes, could you please explain? Yes doubts arise-I guess this is nat...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, Of course it doesn’t come naturally. And we don’t even aim for that. I just gave you these exercises to see what is actually happening ‘under’ the conceptual overlay. Ok What separates things? What makes up the borders? Can we pluck a thing out of the scenery in front of us? If not, is it...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, And what about the one who/what looked out the window? Is there a looker or seer? No- when thought about a 'me' is ignored there is just seeing and what is being seen but not as two things. Can a dividing line between the colour labelled ‘body’ and the colour labelled ‘chair’ be found? Th...
