Re: Looking for more clarity; some helpful pointers...

I woke up in the middle of the night and saw it all even more clearly. A flow of events...that's all there is. The illusion of an 'I' (believing in it) stops one from acknowledging, experiencing the flow of events as just a flow of events. That's what I was trying to say by using the word 'obstacle'...

Re: Looking for more clarity; some helpful pointers...

Hi Metta, OK, I'll have a go at answering, doing the best I can as you suggest. 1. No, there really is no 'me'. It isn't to be seen, or experienced, or got hold of. This particular mind-body has been forming, changing, becoming more complex, perhaps, since childhood, but there is nothing that owns i...

Re: Looking for more clarity; some helpful pointers...

Hello Metta

This feels like a crucial point in a process of unfoldment. There is a kind of knowing...a movement, a wave that doesn't stop. I trust the process.

I would like you to send me the final questions. That would be great.
Thank you, I feel fortunate.

Re: Looking for more clarity; some helpful pointers...

Hi Metta Thoughts are just constructs, they arise out of sensations, feelings, other thoughts..and dissolve. Some of them may point to a truth of how things are, but they (the thoughts) are not the truth. I feel quite empty today, in a good way, emptied of a tension, perhaps. There is no 'I' separat...

Re: Looking for more clarity; some helpful pointers...

Dear Metta, I think this illusion of an 'I' arises out of a fear of not getting what I want...or the fear arises out of the illusion of an 'I'. Living just happens one moment after another. There are endless variations, changes, fluctuations...But I cannot see a separate self above and beyond that. ...

Re: Looking for more clarity; some helpful pointers...

Dear Metta, One of the most helpful things you've said is 'awareness doesn't need an 'I'....That really feels very liberating. Where I live we see a lot of birds that migrate from Northern Europe and Siberia to Southern Europe and Africa, and back again in the summer. They stay around for a couple o...

Re: Looking for more clarity; some helpful pointers...

Hello Metta I'm finding this very fruitful - so thank you. There has been a lot of spaciousness in my experience, that feels good. Read your reply this morning, did some chikung later. Soft slow movements. Your comment about being a baby were helpful. Got tangled up in my mind around stressful thoug...

Re: Looking for more clarity; some helpful pointers...

Hello again 'Can you take yourself out of experience?'.....The question pushes me up against a belief that 'I' have to be charge (guarding, protecting, directing...) because, well someone has to be in charge. It's a strong habit. This is like a fairground ride, scary and exciting. As I was cooking l...

Re: Looking for more clarity; some helpful pointers...

A walk today One of the toes hurts a bit, the boot is tight. Eases. The socks feel pleasant against the soles of the feet; legs soft. The boots sink a little in the mud...then the track becomes harder. Tiny stones. Aware of my balance wobbling a bit when stepping on one. The sound of the stones agai...

Re: Looking for more clarity; some helpful pointers...

Hello Metta Yes, daily contact sounds good. I'm not expecting to be travelling for a while. I'm 60 years old...have been meditating, studying the Buddhist Dharma for many years. Now living semi-retired in the country. I think I have glimpses of there being no 'self', but very aware of feelings, thou...
