Re: Has any liberated ones exprienced psychoses

Leelotschka, this is not a support group, and it is not a general discussion forum. It is a working forum, and it is specifically for guides and clients who are working one-on-one. In particular, we can't help if a forum member has a condition that would better treated by a medical professional.

Re: I'm looking for a multiskill guides

Hello, Bartek. I'm sorry to hear about the difficulties you experience. However, this forum is not the right place for dealing with issues that are better addressed in therapy. We don't provide that service here.

Re: Probably I should be removed from the Liberated group

xyzzy, as per your request, I have un-blued you. Please feel free to start your own thread either in the One-on-One, or in the Three-on-One, according to your pereference.

Re: Ready to dive in...

Ok. I am going to terminate my involvement in this thread now, partly to concentrate on other projects, and partly because I find it very wearing when clients take several days to do a few seconds of honest looking. Since it's a Three-on-One, you might be able to attract another guide along with Cam...

Re: Ready to dive in...

Fascinating viewing... how often the "I" wants to stake a claim, especially in the company of others. You're right on track there. But I'm back to a more relaxed version of the whack-a-mole game, which feels right. For a while there I was feeling pretty lost from this endeavor. Thanks for sticking ...

Re: Ready to dive in...

There's nothing to do except watch.

The swirling sensations, the I thoughts, the reactions to the I thoughts, the desires, the "I" word staking a claim on the desires, and so on.

Is there a self anywhere at all in all this? Look and see!

Re: Ready to dive in...

Ah, now you are seeing! "Disentangling" is a good way to put it. A word here, a physical feeling there, and suddenly there is the illusion of a self. So keep on disentangling the parts until you see there's really nothing solid in the middle. It's just a collection of entangled parts with nothing at...

Re: Ready to dive in...

Take a careful look at how that happens. This desire for "my" life to be other than it is -- is it anything other than a story composed of words and thoughts? What would be left if you took the words and stories away? What would be left if you took the word "my" out of it? Take a look! Does the word...

Re: Ready to dive in...

Hi, Nueve, I'm interested to know what that fear is, the fear elicited by Cam-RT's question about where thoughts come from. You've seen that the body just is, and only the mind superimposes the word "my" on the physical reality. The feelings of lowness, tightness, and anxiety are there. A story abou...

Re: Ready to dive in...

the "me" that still feels visceral and real is generally my physical/emotional body and more specifically a sense of contraction at the chest. At least when I'm alone and quiet, thoughts of "I" have a sense of distance, an obvious fictitious quality to them. But as for the body... I can see that al...

Re: Ready to dive in...

Yes, keep watching thoughts that feature the word "I," over and over again, until you see that "I" is just another word. Do you have any control over the arising of this "I" word and its attachment to thoughts? Do you have any control over which thoughts or desires in particular it sticks to? Look, ...

Re: Ready to dive in...

These "I" stories feature a subject that doesn't really exist. "I" is just a word -- not an object in the real world. Keep watching the stories, without believing in them. You say, "I'm further away even than when we started together." How can a non-existent subject be far or close to anything? Can ...

Re: Ready to dive in...

Were there stories in the mind producing this glum mood? Were they "I" stories?
