Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Dave, I had some time to go through the exercise again and I’m not sure how you want to do this but I’ll respond to your original questions first. What is known? When does thought chime in and do it's thing? When does the story about understanding arise? Is understanding something that happens at...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Dave, Whether the sensation dissipates or not is not the point. Does the sensation in itself need to go anywhere or change? Is the sensation itself "a sense of unease or dissatisfaction"? Is the thought "a sense of unease or dissatisfaction" pointing towards experience, or simply towards more tho...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Dave, Everything you say here makes sense to me. I am just not able to pin down that sense that something is missing or something is not right. I tried using ‘blah blah blah’ to replace the thoughts and the sensation starts to dissipate quickly but there is still a sense of unease or dissatisfact...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Dave, Tell me if the following statements are accurate: We looked for something or someone separate from experience experiencing it. We found that there was only experience .Yes We looked at sense of self and found that this consisted of nothing more than experience itself, and thoughts saying th...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Dave, Are the sensations themselves there all or most of the time? How much if the time actually are they there? Are they exactly the same each time they happen? Is that even possible? the sensations are there only some of the time. They are not exactly the same and no, that’s not even possible. ...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi again, Before exploring this a little more, can I ask is there ever any time when it doesn't feel like something is missing? If so, how would you describe that, both: Writing freely, And, In terms of tasting, smelling, hearing, seeing, sensation and thought ? This actually crossed my mind as I wa...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Dave, Is it possible for something to be missing from experience? To answer honestly, yes it feels that way. Are you imagining something specific missing, or is it just a "sense" of something missing? In a certain situation or scenario, there are all specific thoughts about what needs to be diffe...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Dave! I waited for a bit to see what came up but I'm not really getting much. (Interestingly enough, I wrenched my neck a couple of days ago and have been laid up a bit...it's funny the timing of it as it's been a major distraction!) Anyway, not sure whether the implications of this have really s...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Dave, It is fine to believe in a table. It is fine to believe in a self. It is fine to believe decisions are being made. It is fine to believe things are happening on their own. Is believing the same as knowing? No. What does this "sense" consist of? Simply the same - touching, seeing, tasting, s...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Dave, Sorry for the delay in responding. The very 1st question about ‘seeing’ was tricky. It’s so much easier for me with hearing and sensation but that sense of subject/object came with seeing. After looking at only direct experience, I no longer felt like seeing was happening from ‘the eyes or ...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Dave - I had something come up, so the past 2 days have been crazy. If I don't get to it tonight, I will respond tomorrow in the morning. Things have changed a bit, definitely not as frustrated. Will write more later. Thanks for checking in and have a good weekend!
