Re: Seeking Enlightenment

Hi Greg,

Did you ever in your life experience time?
I dont need/want an explanation of what you think time is, I want to know if you ever experience time itself.

Thanks,
Martijn

Re: Seeking Enlightenment

Here is an other excersize. Look around in your room. Based on ONLY your visual input, can you experience any border? Do your eyes, or your visual capacity itself experience any border what is your body/head or what is not your body/head. Or is this separation only a conclusion, an idea in thought? ...

Re: Seeking Enlightenment

Can you cut your nails? (without hurting yourself of course) Tell me afterwards if this changed anything of what is aware. Tell me if this truly actually, in your direct experience, changed that what is aware. Has that changed, if so what changed, or is that just a thought? Please note I am not talk...

Re: Seeking Enlightenment

How can you be aware of something that you are, Perhaps it is wrong to say that I am aware of my whole self. There are many hidden parts of my body and head. But I am aware of most of the parts that other people notice about me. I am aware of all of the parts of me which correspond to the equivalen...

Re: Seeking Enlightenment

I am not only my body, I am a combination of that and my head. I am aware of my body. I am also aware of my head, and I am aware of that awareness. Are you aware of your body, your mind, your thinking? How can you be aware of something that you are, you must be aware of something that is other than...

Re: Seeking Enlightenment

Ok. Lets do some real direct looking/inquiry. This means you can only explain what you experienced, not what you concluded. Sit at a table, relax, stretch your arm a bit, look at your hand for a while. We are ONLY going to use your vision. Nothing else. Look at what you call your hand. Really look a...

Re: Seeking Enlightenment

Sorry, i took body and head as one.
Why do you constantly make a distinction between your head and your body? You make it sound like two separate things. Like, i am my arms and my body, or, i am my left side and my right side.
What exactly do you mean by 'my head'?

Re: Seeking Enlightenment

Are your thoughts then an unreal part of you? They are not part of me. Okee.. what are they part of then? If you can separate a thought between you and not you, then can you find a boundary? What does the boundary look like? How exactly does the thought "I am my body and my head" hold up when thoug...

Re: Seeking Enlightenment

If you are referring to the imaginary sounds, then no those are not a real part of me. Are your thoughts then an unreal part of you? If you are referring to the electro-chemical processes in my brain, viewable with a scanner, those are a real part of me. Are the electro-chemical processes in you br...

Re: Seeking Enlightenment

Hi Greg. We need to leave behind all biological and technical "ideas" or knowledge that we have if we want to dive deeper in this. We are questioning our thoughts here, and try to see if the thoughts are actually coherent with our experiences. When I ask you a question you can only answer from what ...

Re: Seeking Enlightenment

Great! But no, there was no "I" that was looking when I performed the exercise in that particular instance.. So, while truly observing/looking you could not experience an observer. There was, so to say, only observing/looking happening. Right? Then, you mention for that 'particular instance' there w...

Re: Kwijt wat ik nooit heb gehad

Hoi Tess. Leuk, top dat je iets laat horen van jezelf! Heel goed. Ik ben ook diverse keren bij de retraite van Eric geweest. Hij heeft me goed geholpen op diverse fronten. Het ego kent vele truckjes om zichzelf in stand te houden en om dingen niet echt te hoeven ervaren en te voelen. Maar het komt e...
