Re: Is it possible to see this?

Yes, I wanted you to pay attention on that being-ness, awareness. Stay with it for a while. Nothing needs to happen. Are "you" aware of it, or thoughts about "you" appear in it? What are you in this experience? There isn't the experience of me being aware of it, there is just the experience of bein...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Ok. When you do it again pay attention on that what is observing; on the space, silence in which all that is happening. I'm not sure exactly what you're saying. There's a feeling of being which might be what you're talking about, I can't explain any better than that what it is. If I pay attention t...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Spend some time sitting doing nothing but observing thoughts, feelings, sensations as they happen. Just be with the experience without special expectations and report how it went; what was going on. I feel physical sensations and there's a feeling of being, and then before too long my mind gets dis...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Look for that that which is and which was there before you learned the word "I", before your body got name and all sorts of identifications began leading to inevitable confusion. That is important. It doesn't need protection, just honesty to be recognized/liberated in your actual experience. Experi...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

What if there is confusion between what really is - this awareness, this experience, aliveness - and thoughts arising in connection with body making this personal? Take some time for still observation. Maybe it's possible that I am just a belief, and that therefore I am not important or in need of ...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

You are not looking, not observing at all. Your answers come from concept, beliefs and thinking. That's why you sense yourself to be located in the head. But it is just brain working. Liberation begins with observing. When I look, I don't find myself within my experience. I also don't exist in the ...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Is the life divided into pieces or it is just a mental concept? I am life, and there is other life out there which is not me, so I am just a piece of it. Could you describe those feelings? And explain how they are "your" attributes. "Knowing" is actually a better word than feeling. I know that I am...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

I would suggest you staying a bit with the answer 2; what is it that is always here? Does it need protection? Does the truth or illusion need protection. How can you know that something you don't know have attributes? Examine all this honestly and deeply. Sit with the feelings that arise, feeling f...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Are those both answers equally true? No conflict between them? (Hello again, Eloratea!) One is the logical answer, which only operates when it's being thought about, which is only occasionally. The other is the emotional answer, which operates the rest of the time. Yes, I suppose they are equally t...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Hello Edward, It doesn't matter what the mind says about any of this, I'm still here. Could you say in what way or form you are still here? What this - I am- is? Is it always here? Or there is time when it is not here? Answer 1: Of course, there isn't actually any me here, or anywhere, and there ne...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

The other thoughts that go with it are that there is this me here which is highly important and must be protected and which will continue to exist off into the future, so there has to be planning to look out for it off into the future. Ok, that's a good story. Is it true ? Answer 1: No, it's not tr...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

There's sort of a feeling or a knowing that there is a me here, Investigate this. Is there sensation attached to it. Is there other thoughts born of it ? etc.[/quote] I don't think there are sensations attached to it. The other thoughts that go with it are that there is this me here which is highly...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

We are not peddling knowledge here. LOOK and see for yourself. It's your experiencing that is the measure. Just get quiet and watch how thoughts work. As I mentioned before, I'm not sure I can do this. If I try to watch my thoughts, they slow down and stop. Beliefs are previously accepted thoughts ...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

what's really happening is that there is the thoughts and beliefs are considered to be true, ..by other thoughts ? I'm not sure exactly how it works. Some things are seen as being true or believed as being true, I'm not sure of the mechanics of how this happens. I don't believe that there is a me m...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

but thoughts seem to be expressing beliefs and ideas that are mine, or that I agree with. Hmm, let me paraphrase you on this; "but thoughts seem to be expressing other thoughts (beliefs) and more thoughts (ideas) that other thoughts are saying that belong to the idea of a me..." How accurate is eac...
