Re: Is it possible to see this?

Hi Edward Ok. What you describe looks like direct experience (DE), then thoughts, then DE, then thoughts again. Don't get lost in the periods with thoughts. Just let them be, and when you notice thoughts have taken over focus on DE again. In DE can you find an 'I'? Vivi No, there is no I in my expe...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Hi Edward Yes that is what I ask of you. Call it an exercise. It can also be called training in direct experiencing. It is my impression that you have not understood the point of that yet. It means to be in the now and when thoughts come in, you are not in the moment. It is about experiencing what ...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Hi Edward Hopefully I'm not coming across as being too argumentative here... Do you experience to feel you are coming across as being too argumantative? I simply see resistance. Sorry I didn't mention that you are not supposed to use the words I wrote in the example. Greetings Vivi I'm not sure wha...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

I wasn't really putting labels on them most of them time, but I have to do so in order to type them in here What made you think that you had to label the experience the way you did, in order to write it here? Humming sound, pressure, being, breathing, sleepy. Would have been a valid answer. What ha...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Hi Edward Ok. Now do this: Sit down. Close your eyes. Notice for 10 minutes what you can hear, feel and smell and body sensations. Tell me. I do not care if you have already done that a 100 times or more, I want you to do it now, in order for me to know how you describe you experience now. Warm reg...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

I don't really have any feelings about looking into direct experience. I have done this many times during these various threads, I believe. Usually people would ask me to look at my actual experience and see if there is a me, or to see that there is no me. So I would look and see, ok, physical sens...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Ok, so if it's completely intellectually clear that there is no I then what are you? If there's no thinker of thoughts what does the intellect say that you are? There's just this experience, there isn't a separate I having it or controlling it or whatever. Can you describe this "feeling that there ...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

Hi! This is just a thought. Currently in the way of your wish to see the 'I' illusion. That is something I KNOW. Everything you stubble upon or are asked can be answered from Direct Experience. That is what we ask of you. Tell me what you feel about looking in to Direct Experience. Vivi Hi dreamer ...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

What we're getting to here is NOT some kind of intellectual idea or psychological trick. We're talking about REALLY discovering that there REALLY AND TRULY is no "personal I". It seems completely impossible, but as soon as things are clear, then it's completely obvious that there never was a person...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

At times I'm answering intellectually, at times not, it depends on what I'm being asked, probably. If someone asks me to look at my experience, or to do something, I do. I think that perhaps you're misunderstanding what's being asked of you xyzzy. Vince is asking for reports from direct experience ...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

You were very fast. Did you dwell in each pointer ? Just post any fresh SEEing. Well, it took a number of hours. Nothing really noteworthy happened, though. Sometimes my answers were different from the first time I gave them, but I didn't have any responses which were different from the general thi...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

At times I'm answering intellectually, at times not, Ok, so you Can see the difference between the two ways of LOOKING. Without doubt you have been exposed to more than enough pointings (questions) to trigger a shift, an awakening, but the first time you were exposed to them, something happened to ...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

If it's possible to see that there is no me in some other way besides intellectually, I can't seem to find it. It definitely wont happen intellectually. Would it be accurate to say that all of the questions in all of the threads, you have considered intellectually and arrived at an intellectual ans...

Re: Is it possible to see this?

a sense of me This needs examination. When you say a "sense" of.. are you talking stuff of the senses. Are there sensations associated with it ? Is it of the mind ? Thoughts ? "a sense of me" implies some sort of fuzzy, undefined, shadow with a convenient label attached... Please tell me the fruits...
