Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

That seems clear also. Any more questions? Any doubt? Anything else? Are you ready to answer the final questions? Since there has been some delay between posts, I'll go ahead and list the questions here. Feel free to skip these and come back to them later if there's more you want to discuss! 1) Is t...

Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

That sounds pretty clear. :)
It's not like these thoughts stopped, they still show up, it's just that somehow they don't stick anymore.
I understand this, but let's look at an example. What do they say and what is the response? Are you responsible for the responses?

Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

Rainbows, mirages in the desert, optical illusions... even though they honestly seem to be there, solid and real... they show how thoughts can be mistaken.

So who is looking?
Who wants to go through a gate?
Is there an owner of the body?
A controller?
Someone at the helm?

Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

That's it. Looking goes on? Attention, feeling, movement? Nothing left to be called "me"?

Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

Perhaps a very broad description of a "phenomena", like saying: a "storm", but even so, it is too vague and too broad, it's not reliable. Good analogy for life, actually. Is there anything separating any clouds of phenomena from each other? Where does the storm of "you" end and the storm of the res...

Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

Sure, Diego, this is lovely. I can't find it, to be honest, it's only "location" is mentioned in thoughts, but no physical root, no ZIP code.... If I check a ball dropping there's visual stimuli, and before and after for me to compare with, however with thoughts it is not so clear. Look with percept...

Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

Hello, I'm still here! Sorry for the two days without posting back. It helps to check in, if only to say you're checking in. Its kind of confusing, but it seems like it is happening by someone, this someone is inside. Without this someone, there's no picture. Sleep comes to mind, deep sleep, when e...

Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

Well, there's a picture happening, but how? Is it happening to someone or by someone? Is the someone inside of or behind the view? Using a finger to point at this point of view :)... is the finger seen by a seer, is it pointed by a doer, is it owned by an owner, is it also the owner? Very confusing ...

Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

Somehow they still manage to trick me into believing there's a little core of I that is there, although I can't point where it is. Well, "I" is whatever is responsible for doing stuff, right? So just check back and see what's doing stuff. "Tricks me into believing" keeps coming up. Can you describe...

Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

Your comment brought to mind that links are thoughts too, and notions of me are thoughts connected to other thoughts. Sure, but how did it start? There's no way they can describe the I, because the I is a series of thought streams being presented to me. Presented to who? Find this in experience, no...

Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

it looks like the "I" wasn't the author of the things that happened. They just happened. But "I" thoughts still showed up. Oh, these don't go away. They're just seen for what they are. I see it now, when in "concept" land, things are more circular and far removed from actual experience. Thoughts on...

Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

The irritation that it brings is a thought, or series of thoughts, that talk about the irritation, then a feeling in my head, a sort of pressure, then thoughs labelling this pressure as irritation. Do you see how the first part is circular logic, and the second part is a more accurate description o...

Re: Looking for guidance - Thanks :)

no I, or the I just being another stream of thoughts... It is more than this. So much more than this! "'I' is just a thought" is often the last step in seeing no-self, but it's not the whole of no-self. This is like math. You can repeat 2+2=4 like dogma, but that's useless for visceral understandin...
