Re: Give me the best one (hardnut here.)

Do not mean to be rude but if these characteristics are not there in experience this is not anatta what you are doing here but insight into anatta, that why many people like me will have a drawback.
We are not offering an experience.

Let me know if you wish to continue.

Re: Give me the best one (hardnut here.)

I see I can only experience myself only.
Is this experience limited to the body and the mind?

Re: Give me the best one (hardnut here.)

Freedom and bliss, deathless state which I can see reality the way it is not they way I think it is thru the "I" This is an expectation, an idea, or thought, about what seeing through the illusion of self will result in. We are not promising exceptional states of mind and body. We guide to the reco...

Re: Give me the best one (hardnut here.)

That watching seems to not begin or end but just limited to the boundaries of experience of the body, mind, senses etc.
What else do you expect you should be experiencing?

Re: Give me the best one (hardnut here.)

I cannot find anything like "me" but I find that there is something which is watching...

Re: Give me the best one (hardnut here.)

Describe where this "me" begins and ends in direct experience.

Re: Give me the best one (hardnut here.)

I cannot see thru the false "I" again and I do not see any exit really from actual experience to that dimension of no self. The "I" that cannot see through the false "I" again is also a false "I." I am still not clear from your description regarding what your understanding of "no self" or anatta is...

Re: Looking for a guide

Hi Clara. Here are the questions we always ask when it is felt that the gate has been crashed. Take your time with your response.

Re: Looking for a guide

However, the feeling of being able to control my focus and stay in my present is very strong. And when these moments occurs, they are accompanied by a perception of reality as thousand elements appearing and disappearing without anybody really controlling them. I need to be still though to experien...

Re: Looking for a guide

When I focus in the present experience I can see how everything arises and then disappear and then something else appear but I need t focus and I need constant reminders to keep me grounded in the present moment. Would you identify with thinking and thoughts if you had a choice? If there is no self...
