Re: I Need Guidance

Maybe you confuse "direct experience" with "feeling"? Ok, I should have been more precise. It "seems "that it is absolutely true as things in my day happen. Truth can't be felt, it is known. The self is known. For a part that could be true. It doesn't beat your heart or digests your food, but it pr...

Re: I Need Guidance

What kind of feeling? Can you describe that feeling? And what is the organism? The body + mind? It is a feeling of the organism. Sometimes it can change based on things such as anxiety etc. Yes, that is the organism. Isn't it already? Or is the feedback loop still playing? Or both? No, it is not re...

Re: I Need Guidance

And? Results? Insights? Seen what it is, this "sense of self"? There is direct exposure of this, it can't be constantly reinforced by thoughts. If I focus on the organism("me") there is only a feeling. So maybe that means me, my past/future, relations etc. is all imagined. It's very easy to recogni...

Re: I Need Guidance

These questions can't be solved with thinking. You have to look and discriminate. Are you the body? Look. Are you thoughts? Look. What is this "sense of self"? Investigate. Not by thinking or analyzing but by introspection. Feel this sense of self. Keep your attention on it during the day and see w...

Re: I Need Guidance

You can do both, also investigate: What is it not? What am I not ? (body, thoughts, feelings, sense of self) I have done countless variations of this. These types of questions feel indirect, because they are more about thinking rather than seeing. (at least for me) Please give one (or more) example...

Re: I Need Guidance

Why do you put "real" between quotes? Maybe the self can only be conditioned. A controller is being experienced - What is the nature of this controller? It is founded upon the belief that there is control, so there are reactions to this belief. This results in a "controller." Is it really in contro...

Re: I Need Guidance

I think it would be better to start here: Try to proof that a self exists . So see if you can come up with a proof that a self exists. Suppose I'm totally wrong and it does really exists. I'm open to logical argumentation. Convince me. A "real" self has been created in this organism's thoughts. It i...

Re: I Need Guidance

What happens when you worry? What feeling(s) does it evoke? Where is that located in the body? Observe. Feelings of anxiety arise, located in the chest area primarily. Then decisions are made about what must be done. What is worrying "made of"? Thoughts and feelings. What kind of thoughts? What kin...

Re: I Need Guidance

Haha. The question was not: "What is it that is worrying?" I just wanted you to investigate worrying, look into it. Like close your eyes, worry and look at you worrying and see if you discover something. Ok, it can be read both ways. It would have been better phrased "What is worry?" Sure, no organ...

Re: I Need Guidance

What is worrying? Me. What is its root? This organism. What is it "made of"? Functions of the organism, senses, thoughts (personality). What is its purpose? I don't know What is its advantage/disadvantage? Advantange - Distinction between individuals Disadvantage - Suffering Please investigate your...

Re: I Need Guidance

There is only the feeling in experience, but thoughts about it separate it; the feeling is happening to this organism (me). The differentiation here (between thought-input and reality) produced a smile and a little laughter when I really considered it. I thought it might be worth mentioning. It can...

Re: I Need Guidance

From what? The organism(me), conceptually. So where is it located (experienced) in your body? Somewhere in the chest area, perhaps the heart/around it. How or why will “Seeing the self as an illusion/delusion.” be liberating? I can't imagine precisely how it would be liberating. The story of me wil...

Re: I Need Guidance

“There is not much else to do, and I am dissatisfied with life.” - that doesn't sound like a burning desire for truth. Ok, I will rephrase that. There is not much else I want to do besides searching for truth. And could you change your motivation into something like that, something more energetic? ...
