Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

Hi Harry, The guides would like to have you answer this one again: 4) What was the last bit that pushed you over, made you look? What is being asked here is not 'why did you come to LU or engage in a conversation here', but 'what was it in your direct experience that had you stop Thinking and reall...

Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

Thank you Harry. Just one question: You write "I don't find a seperate entity, or a self that has substance in my present experience. Whenever a form of self has manifested, it has always proved to be an illusion", but you fail to state whether there is, or ever was, in fact, an entity "self" in yo...

Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

Hello Nona, I've been busy being artistic - in the absence of an artist. My responses to your lines are in italics: Hi Harry, From your words I cannot tell whether you have SEEn it experientially or only mentally. Your answers to the following should clarify this. Please answer from your direct expe...

Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

Dearest Harry, Have you SEEn through the illusion of a separate self? Have you observed how "I" is created? love Nona Dear Nona, This morning, in meditation, 'I' looked again at the nature of 'I'. As memory delivered up images, and thoughts assembled around them, there was a flickering of the delus...

Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

Dearest Harry, I have perceived and understood that 'self' is a mental construct and is merely the consequence of applying labels (and thingness) to thought. A separate and distinct self is an illusion; this has become obvious to me. "SEEing it in your direct experience, vs understanding it in mind...

Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

Dearest Harry, All the characters in the story are fictional constructs of mind; likewise the writer, being a construct of mind is also a fiction. This is not only logical, but it is true. Indeed. Have you SEEN that "self" is a mental construct? That it is a label for a thought about other thoughts...

Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

Dear Nona, thank you. Hi Harry! Welcome back! [ ..... I don't find a decision making entity, but have noted (by retracing the decision process) that the decision has a trigger 'thought' or 'mental image' in the early part of its history. "So are decisions made by an "I", a "self", or a Harry? Or are...

Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

Dear Nona, I'm back from my retreat. There was plenty of walking done - in the rain, wind, and windows of sun - and occasions for reflection on your words. quote="nonaparry"]Dear Harry, As the mind begins to name and describe - focus on experience loses sharpness and fades. "Yes. And check for the o...

Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

Thank you, Nona. I'm preparing for my journey tomorrow. I'll take your post on retreat where I'll have time to do it justice.
I'm away for 10 days.

Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

Hi Harry, I can wonder if I am simply 'playing with words'. I try to set that aside and concentrate on experience. Even so - words are still with us. Shift your focus from thinking to direct sensation. Closing the eyes helps. Focus on the pressure of buttocks against the chair, the movement in the ...

Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

Hi Harry, I suggest you go back through this thread an answer any unanswered questions you find. This will help me see where you are vis-a-vis "self" and continue to point to the fact that there simply is no such entity "self" in reality. love Nona Thanks, Nona - I'll do that over the next few days...

Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

I missed reporting yesterday, Nona. Even so, I have been trying to live in experience without self-reference. Today, the making of a new garden pond for the amphibians has been done with mindfulness. It went well.
Is the guiding completed, or is there more?
love
Harry

Re: Request for guidance from Nona.

Hi Harry, Here is an exercise I would like you to do. Write for me what you are experiencing right now using the words I and me. Get right to the point, no past or future fantasy, just plain description of here now. Like this: I am lying in bed. I am hearing rain. I am typing these words. Do this f...
