Re: A humble request for guidance.

There is no clear response to that question. I only see a pushing and pulling towards and away from an awareness of self throughout life. There is not a significant grand moment where self either appeared or disappeared. As to the exact cause of the experience of self or no-self I also cannot give a...

Re: A humble request for guidance.

Haha Colleen. I get the joke. That's a good one. Very funny. That reminds me of the old Abbott and Costello skit Who's on first what is on second... Are you familiar with that one? Anyway, yes, if you ask me a question for the sake of communication I need to say "I" and "me". No they don't exist in ...

Re: A humble request for guidance.

Hello Collen. I did contemplate these questions for a couple days. Here are my answers: 1) Is there a 'me', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever?

Re: A humble request for guidance.

I had a pipe break in my home today and it was amazing because even though it leaked all over and caused damage, as I watched myself dealing with the situation there was absolutely no ...

Re: A humble request for guidance.

Hello Colleen. I agree with everything you suggested. Thanks for reminding me! I found this quote by you to be especially inspiring and right on target: How about just sitting in that yes, there is "something" there, beautiful, it is always there, never leaves, that "is", and it is constant.

Re: A humble request for guidance.

Yes I am PST as well. Happy New Year to you too Colleen. I have been contemplating this concept of the presence and meditating on it for the last couple days. I really do feel like there is an order to my experience and that it is being guided and that I am protected in some sense. For example if I ...

Re: A humble request for guidance.

Hello Colleen. Back from X-Mas ... Hope yours was fantastic. 1) what did you experience here, is there anyone who is organizing this or who is separate from any of it? Even though I can acknowledge that my smaller self, or ego / body is not the initiator, it seems there is a presence somewhere, or a...

Re: A humble request for guidance.

when you saw thru the separate self explain what the experience of that is...is this "I" or "me" locatable, or has it ever been? The I or me in the traditional and /or personal sense does not exist. There is only "all that is". is there a doer or controller that can push or pull and direct the proc...

Re: A humble request for guidance.

I hear you have seen through the separate self... will you share here in detail how you came to see this When I was 27 years old I was thrown into the deep end of the pool. I was diagnosed with a life threatening disease and many other major events happened in my life. These events along with many ...
