Re: Seeking Guidance

Was there ever? No there is not a 'me' in reality, in no way, shape, or form. There are thoughts in re...

Re: Seeking Guidance

What is liberation? How would you describe the experience of no-self? Liberation is the realization of that which has always been there. It is seeing through the illusion of the 'i' and then realizing that there never was such an entity. The experience feels like freedom. Also everyone has this exp...

Re: Seeking Guidance

Good! At this point is there anything you wanna ask , stucked somewhere? Or you got it already? What's the "I"? Do "you" exist? The 'I' is just the label attached to thoughts/feelings/etc. Since the 'I' is only found in the thoughts, 'I' only refers to more thoughts, not to any true part of reality...

Re: Seeking Guidance

Life is being lived! It's quite great. Questions do come up, but they are quickly answered. What happens next? Life continues. Where do 'I' go from here? There is no 'I' that can go anywhere. It's funny to look back at old readings and teachings and see how they are helpful, but also detrimental. It...

Re: Seeking Guidance

Yes, what do you think that means? What should this "self" be then? But if there is no such thing as it, the Self, what are we talking about? This means that the self is simply a part of the experience of thought. Thoughts arise on their own accord, but the I comes attached to them or attaches itse...

Re: Seeking Guidance

So, where did those "spiritual teachings" head at one point The spiritual teachings started with my interest in Buddhism, which lead me to explore meditation. Eventually I delved into the idea that all religions point to a single truth of life. Since then I read many books (Tolle, Krishnamurti, etc...

My name is Royce, and I am looking for a guide to help me 'walk through' the gateless gate. I am 20 years old and have been interested in various spiritual teachings for many years, but only recently have I felt I was close to gaining insight into the experience of no-self. Although I sometimes feel...
