Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

Hi Felix
Going back a bit you talked about wanting only good thoughts and no bad thoughts, else you felt you were failing. Is this still that case?
What is the difference between a good thought and a bad one! Where is the difference felt!

Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

Hey Felix Excellent noticing! So watching thought in direct experience is every thought a commentary? Does one thought replace another thought! Or one concept replace another concept? What makes one more true than another? Anything? Nothing? Can one concept be more true than another! Or are all equa...

Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

HeyFelix Keep going with the thought exercise. Let me know what you notice after a few days or longer. Ok. I don't really know. When I tried to look at this again, I again found that a thought is more like a movement of my arm or something, it's just something that happens. It is not an entity that ...

Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

Hey Felix But I don't really know how to "just watch" somehow. Here is a step-by-step description of how to look at thoughts: (1) Notice the current thought that is present. Like when you sit observing the body, a thought might arise “this is my feet” or “here is a pain” or “my breathing is too quic...

Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

Hey Felix That there can be resistance to thoughts (in the form of other thoughts Lol. That’s funny. Try smiling or laughing when this is noticed! It's a mix. Definitely arguing/rejecting it with other thoughts. Something like trying to deny it by "saying" other thoughts such as "this isn't real" "t...

Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

Morning Felix One day it's like "I figured it out/everything is good" the next is like "I have no idea/everything is bad", and so on. Is that thought again? It's a 'trying to avoid fear' thought. Thought trying to avoid bad feelings, or in other words, thought criticizing another thought because it ...

Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

Hey Felix Are you ok? Something about thought and thought content: Noticing the difference wasn't easy, so I didn't really get it, but yesterday I noticed something. The things thoughts talk about don't really exist or happen. It's really simple. A thought like "I have been thinking a lot about X" i...

Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

Morning Felix It feels like there should be some big realization that sets me free or something. Like I came here for that. Trying to avoid some not-so-nice truths by looking for a way out. Feels like? Or thoughts say this can’t be it? Have a look. Why can’t this be it? What make this NOT it? This w...

Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

Hey Felix I still want to look more into the whole "no-self" thing, I don't know if you meant apart from that or including that. This again is just a thought, but yeah. Apart from that I can't really say right now, I'm not really sure what I expected in the first place. But I would be lying if I sai...

Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

Hey Felix Sorry for the late reply. Whenever I focus on these things, they "dissolve", and the associated feelings/emotions become much lighter. Excellent. Keep looking into this though anytime you feel seeking is happening or there’s something taking you out of now, or any uncomfortable feelings et...

Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

Morning Felix Hmm I'm not 100% sure what this refers to. I would say not many things, but they feel rather major: Fears/uncertainty about the future; whether I'm making the right decisions in my life currently. Thinking about this has also brought a certain peace to these topics in my head, just by ...

Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

Hey Felix This feels also *really* strong. I've remembered this a few times over the last couple of days, I will try to explore this more. It seems to - again - lead towards more acceptance/exploration of emotions/etc. that come up. Who or what accepts? Or does that also just happen? What takes you ...

Re: Looking for a long time and quite confused.

Morning Felix It feels like there a so many little 'insights' that it is hard to write them all down. It brings up the question "who is watching the thoughts?" - but that again is just a thought. But noticing happens though doesn’t it? And good question! Who is! And explore the fear. Is it really fe...
