Re: Is it possible to see this?

I have seen another piece of this. I see that there is no center to this experience. That is, there are thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, and so on, but there's not any center around which everything revolves, and certainly no center which is controlling anything. But still, when I ask if the...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Here is your problem xy... you are convinced that the reality you THINK is real is somehow real. you are heavily identified with thinking. you literally believe that thinking gives you a way to view the world that is accurate to Reality How is this any different from pretty much everyone else? It s...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Okay great, Again... this time. Close eyes. Watch thoughts. Then ask yourself. Is there a separate self, anywhere, at all? What comes up. Let the answers arise and notice everything. Describe in terms of 1) thoughts 2) 5 sensations from your Direct Experience. What comes up is that I don't know abo...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Let's try to reset our conversation. /REFRESH/ is there a separate self anywhere, in any form? Intellectually, I would say no. But, we're not interested in that. I don't see a separate self anywhere. But I don't see that there isn't one. So the answer is, "I don't know". There's a belief which says...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Mr xy... It's not any sort of a practical way of looking at things which I could live by. we are not here to give you practical tools to live your life. we are here to help guide you to the seeing that there is no separate self. it seems like you are defending your right to keep this belief about a...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Hey, The question "Who am I?" or "What am I?" is all based on the presumption that there is a You and a 'true identity'. it seems like you are still looking for a self. It isn't there :) And if you believe that a self exists outside of experience, and outside of the world then: 1) you will never be...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

I see what you are saying, but is it not clear by now that the belief in a self outside Experience is just a belief? Just another thought? It's a belief which is experienced as being true. Intellectually, I think it is not true. All I can suggest is to keep going out through your day and really let...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Can you pinpoint where exactly in your direct experience that you conclude that perhaps there is a you. I know you say that it is perhaps outside of experience, but I want to know what in your experience leads to this conclusion. Ad you know, that conclusion is a thought, and perhaps there is a cer...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Cosmik, thanks for telling me about your story. I had a realization after reading what you said about, "The first guide kept getting me to look for this 'self'". I looked to see if I could find myself, and I realized that not only am I not anywhere within this experience (as I've mentioned before), ...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

I'm feeling something here... call it intuition... or call it eating too much Korean BBQ and the heartburn from it... but I wanted to ask you. What is your motivation behind seeing this? What do you really want? Hope you are having a good weekend. I find life to be stressful, and I think much of it...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

No questions for you xyzzy, I'm going to let Cosmik have a go at you for a while, but I just want to point out to you how you keep rejecting discoveries. Here is an interaction between us about a week ago: What's your point? What EXCEPT FOR THOUGHT says that an "I" exists? And even if there was an ...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying here. I can forget about thought and just notice this experience. But this doesn't lead to anything or change anything. This is probably because there are still held (perhaps subtly) Expectations. Check your Expectations. What will change? What will it l...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

If I ask myself "What am I?", I don't really have an answer anymore. The original idea was that I was some thing which had a body, had experiences, did things and thought things and had beliefs and so on. I can see that thoughts and actions are happening on their own, that I'm obviously not controll...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Now hold on a second. Please go back and re-read the first sentence of your reply, and then please tell me what is this "I" that isn't sure of something, and doesn't know how to be sure about it? Please use your first sentence as reference when you answer this. Can you see that you're saying that s...
