Re: Freedom Now

Good to hear that you are feeling better. Both. Life is appearing as a tree. Life is also happening to the tree. Would you say that life is happening to life? Yes, the reaction and insisting is just happening. It is good to notice, that you are not in control of it. It’s what is showing up. The conf...

Re: looking for the i 1

Can you look and tell me, does taking credit something automatic or is this what you need to do? How does taking credit happen, step by step? What is that claims ownership of guilt? When voice in the head takes the blame to be owned, is that voice guilty or is it talking about being guilty? Examine ...

Re: crossing the Gateless Gate

Yes, this is different kind of knowing, that is about what is here now. Like you open a tap of water and you put your hand under water, you know if it is cold or hot. No memory or thinking is required. Another way to explain is this: If I ask you, what colour socks do you have on right now, you can ...

Re: Looking at the gate

Sweet. Good to notice. And can you notice that fear comes up as protection mechanism. What is that needs to be protected from the future? Does that protection help? What problem does it solve? And what is behind it, that needs to be protected? Does it help to imagine scary future? Or problems that c...

Re: crossing the Gateless Gate

Not being is real when I look within as there's nothing there How would you know that if you are not aware? Even void is experienced and for that you need to be here. In other words awareness is here with and without the content. I want you to investigate is being on by default, in experience, in a...

Wonderful.
Let’s find out what is happening not on automatic. What is not happening by itself and needs you to do it.
write what you find.

Re: Who am I?

Nice investigation. The i is a thought not an entity. Can a thought imagine? Is a thought in charge of images? Can a thought create images? Observe what is the connection between thought and image. Is thougt causing an image or image causing thought or are they arising simultaneously? And give me yo...

Re: Escaping the Mind's I

The point is, there is no zero point :) In the seen, there is only the seen, in the heard, there is only the heard, in the sensed, there is only the sensed, in the cognized, there is only the cognized. Thus you should see that indeed there is no thing here; this, Bahiya, is how you should train your...

Re: Who am I?

Thank you Tim, for honesty and taking time to look. Many things can happen to the image I’m curious, what can happen to an image. I agree many things can be happening in the image, but what is that can happen to an image? Can you look closer here and tell me what you find out. This is an exercise to...

Re: crossing the Gateless Gate

Interesting. I find that there is no certainty in your answers Not that I know of but I am open to the possibility I invite you to look closer, in your experience and see, is the possibility of not being is real or imagined? Is sense of being, being aware something that comes and goes or is it alway...

Re: looking for the i 1

Yes, it is easier when all is well and smooth. But let’s take a closer look at resistance and see, are reactions happening by themselves or are you doing reacting? Is it wrong to react? Is resistance unwanted? Can it be seen as a friend, as a protection mechanism. It says something here is unconscio...

Re: Looking at the gate

Can you notice, that fear and anxiety come with thoughts about future? What will happen if?
Is fear here when you think about now?
Or when you think about past?
Do thoughts about future make future real?

Explore this.
Love.

Re: crossing the Gateless Gate

Thank you. Let’s look at fear of not being. Invite it closer, it is safe to look at it. It is here to protect, it is a friend. Now look, is there ever when you are not? Can you stop being? By accident or at will? Can you stop being now just for a few second? Are you always here, aware and present? O...
