Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Thanks Tatyana, The mind was confused trying to put the seen into words. Let's get to grips with the "mind" issue. We can only report on what is directly observed. Can you observe an entity called mind that tries to do things? To see this clearly let's look at WHEN is anything happening? Can you exp...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Hello Tatyana,

a question from another guide:

You mentioned feeling confused.

What is it that is confused? What is the confusion about?

thanks!

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Hello Tatyana (sorry about the misspell!) I can see how funny that is because it's like it wants to win something, or get somewhere fast, get the prize of being enlightened. Right! Good to notice that. Is seeing through the separate self a prize? What is it that wins the prize? Nothing can be forced...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Hello Tatanya, a request for clarification: You said "What I mean by acting from the mind is believing it to the fullest. Taking it as a sole authority and not questioning it." What is the separate entity that questions a mind? Is either the entity or the mind any other than thoughts or a story ABOU...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Two of the strongest associations people have is with "body" and "mind". We talk about these things constantly as if they are me or mine: "I hate my body" or "My mind won't shut up" etc. If we sit quietly and look for either body or mind -- what do we find? Try sitting quietly in a chair and gently ...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Yes, language is tricky isn't it!? Mind in my direct experience is what connects the thoughts, sensations and feelings into stories. It creates links between these objects and tells a story about them. These stories could be either taken in a "positive" or in a "negative" way. What you say here Tata...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Hello Tatanya, a question from a fellow guide:
I also see how I am not as the most people acting from the mind anymore. I see when it tries to take the driver seat and I politely ask it to move away.

What is "mind" in direct experience?

What is it that asks mind to move away?

thanks.

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Thanks for the clarification Tatanya. The thoughts that appear are talking to the mind that can attach to them a story, a meaning. It can construct many and different stories which could all be so diverse, so versatile. But once seen beyond them, it cannot be unseen. Right. Here at LU we look at the...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Thank you for your patience Tatanya. Because you moved rather rapidly into a realisation of no separation there were a few steps in the inquiry that got missed out. Can we just check that nothing has been overlooked? Could we have a look at thought? In your introductory statement you said you wanted...

Re: Explore Life. Meet Yourself.

Thanks for the clarification Tatanya. Can a thought evolve? Are some thoughts better than other thoughts? What is it that makes the evaluation? Are thoughts self aware? the majority of beings are still living in suffering These beings, how do they show up in direct experience? Are they separate from...
