Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, I will watch the video but just wanted to respond to the previous questions. Yes, so if there was an actual thinker/controller of thought, then wouldn’t it make sense that you would only choose to have pleasant and positive thoughts? Yes, exactly. Where is the middle of a thought exactly? A ...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, I did end up having to do this several times. “I could see how ‘fear’ was sensation and thought though it still feels real though” is simply an appearing thought. Does this thought know anything about reality of fear, or is it simply a thought that arises and subsides? It's a thought that ar...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, I will continue to do this but wanted to respond. This will help in breaking down what SEEMS to be happening into what actually IS. Let me know how you go Definitely getting the hang of this but need more practice. Taste, smell, and sound are easiest. Little but more challenging with color, ...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, Exactly! The ‘tree’ is colour, the colour isn’t the tree. It’s like a painting of a tree. The tree is paint, the paint isn’t the tree. Experience/THIS is not a tree, the tree is experience. There is that subtle difference which is so easily overlooked! All these ‘things’, will always be expe...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, Can depth actually be experienced? No, when looking at the picture or outside and relying solely on seeing, depth cannot be experienced. I s there really a 3D dimension or only 2D? Again, when just seeing, I only experience 2D. 3D is inferred. Look at colour labelled ‘clouds’, some look clos...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, Without thought, how can it possibly be known that colour is blue or green, or pink or yellow or magenta etc? No. IGNORE ALL object labels and colour labels - are there many colourS? Or is there simply colour? simply color although couldn’t even ‘color’ be just another label? Is there an act...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, Okay…so without thought, how is it known that there are many different colours? without thought, I don’t really know that there are different colors. Without thought, how is it known that a colour ends and another begins? Thought says ‘this color is blue and this color is green and they are ...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, Is there really an ‘apple’ here, or only colour and a thought ABOUT ‘apple’? if I don’t rely on thought at all, I’m not sure what it is. I don’t know that it’s an ‘Apple’. I do see color though and it’s different from the color around it. Can ‘apple’ be found in actual experience? Well I see...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, Without thought, how is it known that the sound heard is the 'hum of the air conditioner'? it’s not known really without thought. In other words, what is it that suggests the sound is the 'hum of the air conditioner'? it’s thought that suggests it’s ‘hum of the air conditioner’. What is the ...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, Thanks so much for continuing to guide me. I am clear on what you have stated below. Tell me ONE sound that you heard when doing this? (Make sure it is a sound that you will be able to hear again for part 2 of this exercise). The hum of the air conditioner. (Hot here so I don’t think it’ll b...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Dave, Part One: Tell me once again, is thought the author of experience? Next question: Is there an independent, separate author of thought or, does thought just happen? I'm going to assume for the moment that the answer to the first question is NO . I'm also going to assume that the answer to th...
