Re: Do I see that there is no me?

Right now is all there ever is. And any time you look, it's here- just like that. What do you want to last? Seeing that there is no me. Right now, when I look, I don't see that there is no me. I see it intellectually, but I don't feel it. There's a feeling of uncertainty. I think there is probably ...

Re: Do I see that there is no me?

I'd say focus on looking and noticing what is right here right now, all problems are imagined. Life does not need to be fixed, only confused mind thinks so. What right now is incomplete? Right now, nothing is imcomplete. Right now, I see that there is no me. But it won't last, it never does. Seeing...

Re: Do I see that there is no me?

No. If it was seen, there wouldn't be such question. What is incomplete? Would anything need to change? What exactly? Life is incomplete, this experience is incomplete. Life is neutral, rather than being good, and this is what would need to change. It feels as if there is a me, as if this experienc...

Re: Do I see that there is no me?

I've been going around in circles on this for months. I see that there is no me, but it doesn't change my life in any way. As I'm going through my life, I still think and feel as if there's a me. I know that there is no me, but this is information that just sits on a shelf in my mind and has no effe...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Again... you are still attempting to change things... The very act of you trying to change things, whether it be a self, a stressful life, or a feeling of certainty is the VERY thing keeping you bound to this phantom self. Yeah, I know. I can't stop trying to change things. The attempt to change th...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Let whichever, do whatever, whenever. let it crash and burn, let it do it's thing, let it destroy you. Put all...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Well you obviously don't see that there is no "me", or you wouldn't be concerned with "the problems that come with believing in a self". When you see that there REALLY is no "me" you will see that the stress and worry belong to nobody. When they belong to nobody they have no place to "stick". At th...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

I haven't posted in a while as I've been extremely busy, and I've been trying to understand what's going on. I see that there is no self, there is no me, but this hasn't changed anything, as I still experience life as if there were a me. The same stress and worries about the future and all the other...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

There are thoughts about the future, which at this point is just a thought, and there are emotional reactions to it. Can you See that these emotional reactions immediately become Reality. A Reality based on imagination. Is this how you (think) you control the future ? Probably thinking about the fu...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

:) it's time to let go. There has never been anyone in control of any situation previously. There isn't now. and there never will be. There is no past, or future, there is just this, here, right now. sensations, thoughts, a sense of aliveness... Life. There is no stress, traps, negativity, problems...

Hi Edward, just wanting to share this: http://eloratea.blogspot.com/2012/10/what-about-future.html There is a deep meaning behind the word surrender . Try to discover it in your experience. Hi, you wrote: And if you find yourself in such particular situation with stressful thoughts about some possi...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

I am trapped by the future, Edward, answer this; Can you grok that "the future" is imagination ? (at this point) Add to this, you say; " Me is just a thought." and what we have is thought (me) thinking (trapped thoughts) about a thought (future). Then, because of habitual, unexamined belief, you ha...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

... so Mr XY.. regardless of what you have thought in the past, are thinking now, and will ever ever think about... was there ever a separate self? is there now? will there ever be? --- When we ask you, is there a separate self, the answer is always there, in plain sight... and it seems like you've...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Is it clear now? I didn't post for a few days because I'm trying to figure out what's going on with me. I'm still not entirely sure. You said something earlier in this thread about looking at my expectations and dropping them. Also, I read in another thread where someone mentioned that he had been ...
