Re: Die before you die

. Is there really an ‘apple’ here, or only colour and a thought ABOUT ‘apple’? Can ‘apple’ be found in actual experience? I don't know' if I'm understanding this correctly, but, actual experience of apples , is seeing colours, shape and depth. The word apple is just a label. . Taste labelled ‘apple...

Re: Die before you die

H Vivian, It's been along day with work and stuff, I've read through your reply, thanks, I probably won't be able to finish it tonight but I'll come back to it tomorrow. . Knowing that there is no-self doesn’t require a belief. Do you need a belief that Santa doesn’t exist? Or the tooth fairy? Or un...

Re: Die before you die

I feel sensation which confirms awareness” – how on earth a sensation confirms awareness? A sensation is a sensation. How is the conclusion made that the sensation is more than a sensation? How is the conclusion made that sensation = awareness? No it doesn't confirm awareness in actual experience. ...

Re: Die before you die

. “I have always been hoping for some sorts of realization” – What is saying that? what is it that was hoping for a realization? “And when I look for awareness or the knower I don't actually find anything” – What is saying that? what is it that is looking for the awareness and not finding it? “and ...

Re: Die before you die

The idea of 'no me' , I tried to stay with this whilst out walking, all that happened is the me feeling jumped around, and I kept doing the looking exercise, several times, and then it jumped somewhere else, then somewhere else and in the end I just thought this is pointless, because I don't really ...

Re: Die before you die

Hi Vivian . Since all the seeming realness of the separate self comes from the seeming realness of a standalone awareness. So as long as awareness is not seen for what it is, the belief of the separate self is not really seen through… it’s just hiding behind the notion of a standalone awareness. Do ...

Re: Die before you die

morning Vivian I thought I would add an extra quick post about something. While doing the exercise yesterday. I realised something more clearly , I am looking for 'someone'. And I think I am identifying with the knower'. I spent a lot!! Of years reading and listening to non duality teachers, and I e...

Re: Die before you die

Hi again, . Does the image/outline itself know anything about ‘fear’? Can you find anyone/anything in the image/colour itself that knows anything about ‘fear’ or that can be ‘fearful’? No, the mental image arises but does not 'know' fear. No I can't find anything or anyone that an be fearful. It is ...

Re: Die before you die

. All right. But still, I don’t suggest using questions like “what/who am I?” since it implies a me, it makes just things even more confusing. Can you see this? Hi, Yes, ok, I understand. .So, what is it exactly that is having ‘frustration’? And what is the AE of frustration? Can frustration be exp...

Re: Die before you die

Hi, . How do you know that YOU exist, if you cannot be found? Look for evidence! Prove it! Don’t just believe this sentence “I know I exist”. – Where is the evidence for this sentence? [/quote . Prove it that it exists! Not just assume, but prove it! – Where is the experiential evidence for it? No, ...

Re: Die before you die

. If awareness cannot be known, then how is it known that there is a stand-alone awareness? If awareness cannot be experienced, then how is it known that there is a stand-alone awareness? Hi, No there isn't a stand alone awareness. Somehow it's integrated into everything that is known or felt. . “I...

Re: Die before you die

. We also say “I’m thinking” – but is there really an ‘I’ that is doing something or are thoughts simply arising? Have a look and see. Yes I'm aware thoughts are just arising. I can find no me, so instigator of thought. . We also say: “I am aware of my thoughts” – but is there really something that...

Re: Die before you die

Hi . THERE IS NO YOU. – Is this true? Yes that's true. But it still hasn't clicked completely. . There has never ever been a you. Can you see this? I can see that that makes sense, but I don't really ' know' it yet. I can keep breaking down every piece that says 'i' and see that there is no 'i' but ...
