Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi Pete, As usual my replies below: Does an illusion of self arise? Can an illusion get defensive or protect itself? Can an illusion do anything? Who or what is identifying with the self? Actually nothing arises. There is no one to identify with self. The answer I gave is to explain that sometimes w...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi Pete, Thanks for the questions. Here are my responses: Only when I try to consider myself as a doer, thinker, feeler or experiencer, the illusion of separate self arises. But anyway, now I have seen through that this self is non existent' Is there a separate entity making a decision to consider? ...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi Pete, Greetings to you and the guide who posted these clarification questions. Thanks for the same. Here are my responses: 'Things happen by themselves or in a personal case, it happens 'through' this constitution of body, thoughts and feelings.' Could you explain what what you mean by this? What...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi Pete, I wanted to elaborate some of my responses - so I'm posting more (as I found that couldn't edit my previous post) 3) How does it feel to see this? What is the difference from before you started this dialogue? Please report from the past few days. In addition to what I had posted previously,...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi Pete, There is a tendency to base expectations of what going through the Gate will be like on examples such as the one you quote, which shouldn't be taken as typical or representative. Thanks for the explanation. I guess it is different for everyone. Once I get your answers, I'll put them forward...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Thanks for sharing your experience Pete. Do you now have any doubts about having seen through the illusion of a separate self? No, there are no doubts about having seen through this illusion. But still I can't believe that I have crashed the gate already. As you said there are thoughts that are tryi...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi Pete, Thanks for the explanation. Yes, the residual energy theory is acceptable and clarifies a lot. I have a direct question - which is when exactly do we consider crossing the gate? Is it when the recognition of no-self as happened or are there any other stages to it? From your experience, when...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi Pete, Wish you a very happy new year as well. " All it will do, if I take the bait to follow this red herring with you, is produce a prolonged discussion and, in all probability, discover nothing of use" How do we handle these red herrings? Because they seem to take off from the assumptions and l...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi Pete, I was not feeling sleepy today, hence I'm making one more entry for the day. As you now see, thoughts just arise and it seems that when we have what we consider to be an important decision to make, and there is emotion involved, thoughts attach to this emotional energy, and these worry-thou...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi Pete, Ok, that's great and I agree entirely. Just to be sure, do you agree that, without a seer, thinker, chooser etc., i.e. with just seeing, thinking, deciding etc. happening, there's no entity to make whatever happens actually deliberate? Can you see that really this is just an impersonal proc...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi pete, Please find my responses below. Please describe your direct experience of this category of 'deliberate' thought. Please describe the thinker and how it thinks. What does it look like? How does it decide what to think and where does it manufacture or create the thoughts from? Ok. I can see t...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi pete, I continue my responses to the other questions here. Raise your right arm (or don’t). In that process of raising the right arm (or not), a decision is made, or at least something happens (or doesn’t). But can you pinpoint the actual moment of choice and find the actual entity that appears t...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi Pete, Thanks and I had a great one too. This is a first time when I feel a bit of resistance/mental turbulence to answer few of the questions. First, given that you've already seen that thoughts just kind of pop up seemingly out of nowhere, rather than being created or controlled by 'you', where ...

Re: Requesting a guide to help me gatecrash

Hi Pete, The main route to actually seeing for yourself that there's no I/me/mine (or you/yours) is simply by looking, looking, looking in direct experience, as I keep saying. However, analogy or metaphor can also be useful for helping place all of this into perspective. Yes, this analogy helps. 'I'...
