Re: Invitation to newcomers to fly with Swallow

Dear Swallow Explain in detail what the illusion of separate self is, when it starts and how it works.

Re: Invitation to newcomers to fly with Swallow

Re: Invitation to newcomers to fly with Swallow

Dear Swallow Yes of course it is thoughts of self still being winkled out and floating off! The i thought it was controlling everything, when it was only thoughts struggling with reality of daily life/memories/hopes.

Re: Invitation to newcomers to fly with Swallow

Dear Swallow Talking to the night sky about being no-self, explaining about being life, life being, expressing, seeing it like waves coming and going on the beach, life flowing and receding in each way of expression. At the same time feeling/seeing little plugs of self unplugging from the great bank...

Re: Invitation to newcomers to fly with Swallow

Dear Swallow, Thank you again for your attention to detail! Yesterday had to do something as a support to my husband, the I came up, "I dont want to do it" had a good chance to examine what it was, and think about the likes and dislikes question. Still working on that! The body and mind have their h...

Re: Invitation to newcomers to fly with Swallow

Dear Swallow I have been looking again at thoughts, trying to find the thinker although of course i expect there is none, and there is no problem, mind just gets bored instead of flipping out.

Re: Invitation to newcomers to fly with Swallow

Dear Swallow Observe how thoughts can create body sensations and how in turn body sensations can create thought. Have been practising this, with peaceful/pleasant thoughts and unpleasant thoughts and memories. Body feels peaceful or disturbed, but it is a bit removed from me, as if i am watching wit...

Re: Invitation to newcomers to fly with Swallow

Dear Swallow Thank you so much for your thoughtful responses to my writings. Things seemed to get clearer this morning, it is trying to focus thoughts on question of who is thinking that is troublesome, but it is obvious mind is thinking, not me. Mind does not want to look at itself. When mind relax...

Re: Invitation to newcomers to fly with Swallow

Dear Swallow Where do thoughts come from? such a difficult question for me, observing, wondering ... it seems they usually come from the moment, the doing or seeing brings a thought ... but that thought might lead to another of its own accord ... no thinker ... but what about when i am puzzling some...

Re: Invitation to newcomers to fly with Swallow

Dear Swallow Thinking all day, What do you think will happen when you let the story end? and i guess nothing will happen, Christine will be alive, life flowing through her, but free of being trapped in the old view of self with all the guilt, recriminations and desire to do better. Who would Christi...
