Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, What else needs to happen to see this as a fact and not just as a possibility? Is there anything missing at all, or rather just certain thoughts/beliefs prevent this to be accepted? I just have to be vigilant and keep looking looking looking whenever a strong 'sense of me' arises with att...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, So, is there a you? Has there ever been a you? Ok- a bit of long winded answer here but bear with me. The other day I read the quotes on the Liberation Unleashed app (I hope that's OK!!)I had a subtle shift from having a belief that the 'illusion of self' was an illusion itself- "it can't...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, I’ve collected some of your answers. You’ve mentioned ‘aware-ing or ‘awared’ several times. Is it possible that the belief in a separate awareness is still there? I don't think so- I've seen through the 'I am awareness' trap that everything appears 'in' or 'to' awareness. When I say 'awar...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Vivien, I see I didn't reply to some Q's below: To me the illusion of self is still just a concept despite the exercises in AE we are doing. How would it look like if the illusion of self wasn’t just a concept? To be honest, I'm veering into expectation on this one- the expectation of an 'aha' momen...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, “I know these are just thoughts” It's not enough to remind yourself what you’ve seen before. NEVER rely on the MEMORY of a previous looking! ALWAYS look AFRESH! If you rely only on memory, then in this moment no-self is just a belief, and not an experiential conviction. The constant looki...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, Could you please tell more about this resistance? What is being resistance? And what is being resisted exactly? Resistance comes in the form of thoughts- "This can't be", "There must be a me" and a 'sense of me' that seems to be more front and centre than at almost any other point in our ...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, Yes I can see how these components create a sufferer/suffering but this doesn't make suffering any less real as the mixture of these components actually happens. The aim of these exercises is not to stop any emotion appearing (including suffering) but rather to see how the illusion of the...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, So let’s look at emotions, what they really are. Bring up an emotion, feel it, and let’s examine what is really going on. An appearing ‘emotion’ like ‘fear’ or ‘happiness’ has three ‘components’: (a) a pure bodily sensation, like contraction or relaxation (b) a mental label stuck to (laye...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

V: And is there anything between the two pressure points, or are there just thoughts or images ABOUT something being in between them? G: Again, just sensations. There is a spaciousness between the two points. Thoughts labels that space 'head'. Please, repeat this again. What is the AE of ‘spaciousn...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, Close your eyes and take in a couple of deep breaths to settle the dust and keeping your eyes closed... Press a finger down onto the top of the ‘head’. Notice what is actually present. Is it a head, or is it just a sensation (labelled ‘pressure’) and thoughts ABOUT a head? It's just a sen...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, With eyes closed, put one of the hands on a desk or a table. Pay attention only to the pure sensation. Does the pure sensation itself suggest in any way that the hand is doing the touching? When paying attention only to the pure sensation it is only sensation. Thought content says "hand t...

Re: Confusion to Clarity

Hi Vivien, Is it totally clear that there is no decider, chooser, mover, intention maker or anything that has a free will of any sort whatsoever? Yes this is clear. Sit with eyes closed for about 15 minutes. Paying attention only to the pure sensations, without relying on thoughts or mental images: ...
