Re: Pema and Walbart

You don't need to be convinced of anything, you just have to look in your direct experience to see what's actually going on. It can seem impossible at first, it was for me, as the thoughts just come thick and fast and don't let up. Just remember that when there is suffering it is impermanent. And mo...

Re: A quick jog through the gate.

There could be a case made that ultimately there are no objects either. ;) The "separation" between "me" and the "objects of perception" that I've talked about is not ultimately real Yes, exactly. The separation is not ultimately real because there is no separation. There isn't a you to be separate...

Re: A quick jog through the gate.

From my perspective (and again, when I say "my perspective" I don't literally mean it is "mine"... I just have a conditioned aversion to say "from the perspective here" ;P ) I totally understand, so don't worry about language getting in the way here. I'm on it. "That which these words are pointing ...

Re: Pema and Walbart

Hi Pema, Enjoy the peace and relaxation, it's here all the time. Can I be blunt and ask what exactly the problem is? I mean, you see that the character of Pema is blowing a gale but that it is just a story, right? There is peace, and then the movement of the body through life creates waves and turbu...

Re: A quick jog through the gate.

Yes, we’re limited by language, but it’s the best thing we have right now. It *is* possible for "space" or "True Nature" or whatever to inhabit the body and experience itself through the body though. Really? How? Tell me. The body experiences, via it’s senses, while it is alive. This is it. Anything...

Re: A quick jog through the gate.

Hi Carson, Of course, my apologies. I wasn’t swearing because I was offended. It was just a literary punctuation ;) Sorry if I offended you in any way. (Besides, you started it by bringing penises and vaginas into this...) You don't ever decide to smoke a joint or not. Any decision you appear to mak...

Re: A quick jog through the gate.

Now we're getting somewhere, good. I "see" them as arising out of "the space where there is no investment in thought" and when thoughts/feelings/sensations that "break the space" and my attention becomes aware of them I can see the specific investment "I" (the ego/separate self) have in them. Then I...

Re: A quick jog through the gate.

I am "the space where there is no investment in thought." I currently experience thoughts/feelings/sensations/etc as objects separate from myself Great, so you see that thoughts/feelings/sensations/etc are objects. The contents of your experience. What makes you think that they are separate from yo...

Re: A quick jog through the gate.

As far as expectations go, I honestly have none Ok, I don't believe you. I am skeptical of this process, simply because it seems a bit too easy/fast People who make a point of saying they're skeptical so soon are normally still harbouring some "hope". But we can soon get rid of that. The seeing of ...

Re: A quick jog through the gate.

Hey Carson, yes, let's go. to label someone as "liberated" creates a very easy place for someone to "land." And I have no desire to land.... only desire to keep going and going and going.... to no end. This is great, because you have no choice in the matter. There is no ground anywhere. So first of ...

Re: Pema and Walbart

I´m not sure I know how to look It took me a while to discover what looking meant. Everything that you can be aware of is an object. These objects can be called the contents of experience. Your hand is an object. The sensation of your hand is an object. If you close your eyes the thought of your ha...

Re: Pema and Walbart

Yeah, you're in the right place, this is very good. Your story is like a timeline. If you could rewind the film and watch closely you'd see exactly where all the experiences, events and conditions got tagged on and made up who you are today. Creating faults, habits and even some good bits! Memories ...

Re: Pema and Walbart

but there is something at the very core of my human drama story that is not allowing my confidence in life to allow everything to run freely
Could you try to look into this? What is at the core of the story? What does it feel like?

Re: Pema and Walbart

Hello Pema, I’m glad you’re here, and thanks for sharing. Don’t worry about language, I’m Scottish, so English is difficult for me too… The first thing I’ll say is let’s just be 100% honest and direct. Background stories are great fun & drama, but they’re not really needed here. But you do seem to u...
