Re: requesting guidance

Hi Mark, 1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? No 2) Explain in detail what the illusion of separate self is, when it starts and how it works from your own experience. Describe it fully as you see it now. What I see is – there is...

Re: requesting guidance

Hi Mark A quickie - ‘So let's check where we are at. Have you SEEN that there is no self behind the actions? No experience-er? Please write your response to this question -- don't think about it or intellectualise it -- just write what you see (or feel) from direct experience:’ OK. Yes, I can see th...

Re: requesting guidance

Hi Mark, Lots of anxious energy today (related to moving and sorting out the move). This is to do with insecurity and there is a lot of vulnerability around it which is familiar stuff. ‘Selfing thoughts will still arise particularly when under stress. When this happens, just let awareness return to ...

Re: requesting guidance

Hi Mark, ‘’Can a boundary be found in experience where ‘body’ ends and ‘outside the body’ begins?’ No, I get what you mean about pain in direct experience. The sudden unexpectedness of the bump yesterday felt like an instantaneous if fleeting boundary...writing this now it’s just a thought memory! B...

Re: requesting guidance

Hi Mark, Definitely different here but still plenty of me-ing going on. I bumped my head and I was very aware of it being my head! I woke up with a great deal of spaciousness – thoughts still but a different balance of experience. More softness and transparency somehow. A bit amazed at a different q...

Re: requesting guidance

Thanks Mark, here's what has come up today - ‘So what are the implications of the fact that no doer can be found?’ This means that the self I believe to be charge of everything is nonexistent, that in fact life just arranges itself in whatever way on its own, without help from ‘me’. ‘What ‘returns’ ...

Re: requesting guidance

Hi Mark, Thanks for your time with me – this is indeed a wonderful thing that you and the others are doing! ‘Good to notice that thing about decision making. Is there an ‘I’ that chooses one thing over another or that makes things happen? or do decisions make themselves? Let’s check this in experien...

Re: requesting guidance

I get the image of a plant, just growing, producing leaves and offshoots as it does it. Different from its neighbour for no discernible reason, just life expressing itself in plant form. Life is also pouring through ‘me’ like that – I’m not in control at all, my life just is as it is in this moment....

Re: requesting guidance

‘ Just watch the thoughts come and go. As you does this consider: Where do thoughts come from? Are they the product of a ‘thinker’ or do they just arise? Where do they go? What size or shape are they? What do they feel like? And can you discern a connection between thoughts?’ This was useful – some ...

Re: requesting guidance

Yes, thanks for the Bahiya Suta - right on the spot! Just found it as I came to write to you and it was perfect! Tried the exercise and then just observed where awareness was going. This felt inclusive – I was trying to exclude various thoughts and feelings before. I asked myself - ‘What is here now...

Re: requesting guidance

Thanks for the detail about page changes – I can get confused by these sort of things. ‘’other daily activities and see if you can find a ‘me’ behind them, controlling them’’ As I was putting away the cutlery I noticed that ‘me’ sort of rose up to take charge, as if it wouldn’t happen without my con...

Re: requesting guidance

Hi Mark, I woke up with a sense of space – tiny gaps between things, just noticed this from time to time through a busy day. It was a pleasant sensation and I felt more spontaneous and relaxed at work ( I supply-teach kids with special needs). I enjoy driving – it’s a time when quite a few of the ‘m...

Re: requesting guidance

Thanks Mark, Lots to turn over, will get back to you tomorrow ....... loved this - Emptiness is the essence of the very processes you say are distracting you Rosy. Emptiness is not a state or an experience elsewhere. It is here, now, emptiness is everything going on in consciousness. Just take a loo...

Re: requesting guidance

Hi Mark, I've read through the details on Direct Experience and it all makes sense. Very pleased to get your input and have mulled it over.... “There is no such thing as ‘me’ in experience”. Is this true? Take a look and tell me what comes up When I look I see awareness flowing between the senses. I...
