Re: enlightenment lost

Hello, There is no self that feels or sees indeed. But is there a change in feelings before and after? Very little has changed, though there is a slow draining of pressures and a breaking down of tensions. It feels as if a process has begun, and is slowly gaining momentum. Negative emotions have los...

Re: enlightenment lost

Hello, 1) Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form? Was there ever? No, I does not exist, nor has it ever. Many thoughts would claim to be "i" but this is only an illusion or trick of the mind. 2) Explain in detail what the illusion of separate self is...

Re: enlightenment lost

Hello :) I feel I am ready for this final set of questions. I do not have anything further to ask, I only have to thank you for what you have shown me.

Re: enlightenment lost

Hello, I am starting to see what this is all amounting to. In fact, I don't feel that there are any more barriers between I and not I. I have not become enlightened in the sense of an existential bliss and ease of being, but I have seen through to an unmistakable truth. There is nobody behind all th...

Re: enlightenment lost

Hello, Who/what is guessing? Who/what is having to accept? This question certainly sheds some light on my problem. I have been acting through an imaginary I, believing that relief can come through concepts such as acceptance, letting go, or living in the moment. Unfortunately, I can see no alternati...

Re: enlightenment lost

Hi, sorry about my delay in posting, I've had an eventful couple of days. As promised,I will do my best to answer your questions. In direct experience does the body have a shape or a form? No, or at least it lacks any definite form. As I have attempted to describe before, it appears as a dynamic, in...

Re: enlightenment lost

Hi Arahant (is that what I will call you?), Yes that is good :) I think this thought is very existent as a thought, but only is referring to nothing real. Is that what you meant? Yes I see the self as a collection of past memories and future aspirations, combined with a belief system and a compendi...

Re: enlightenment lost

Hi, thanks for taking the time to reply. The main thing we do here is pointing to Direct Experience, so we are going to look at what IS. The guiding will help you to see through the illusion of a separate self. Acually that is pretty much it. Is that what you are seeking? Yes, I seek to deepen my un...

Hello, I have been on the path of enlightenment for three years, and in that time I have experienced many things that could be referred to as mystical. First I think it is important to mention that I have actively practiced meditation for many years, picking up a free form meditation as a child with...
