Re: Looking for a Guide

Hi Scott, Thank you for the responses - it's good for laying out the landscape of assumption. What we're looking at here is the possibility that the one called Scott, deemed to be in control, deemed to own the body, to act, is a fiction, an assumption; one that we act as if is true. We're absolutely...

Re: Looking to crash that gate!

Hi Iggy, Cute video :) This process does feel like being a child/learning anew at times - haven't felt such frustrating "can't do/understand it" feelings since primary school! It would be frustrating, because this cannot be understood. So better to give up trying. Seriously. Better to look and see i...

Re: Looking for a Guide

Hi Scott, Hi John, Still trying to figure on the quote function : Is "Scott" a reality or a fiction taken as reality? - please share the present experience. Not for sure at the present time. My "self" seems real to me. I know some people say it's an illusionary process. I can at times believe, even ...

Re: Looking for a Guide

Hi Scott, Last Saturday I decided to have a “Sacred Day”. I fasted till noon. I took a shamanic tool into the body,and began to meditate. In my previous meditations & journeys (shamanic) I have many times reached into the Cosmos before. Beyond or solar system. Way far away, but there have always bee...

Re: Requesting a guide

Hi Brett, Hi John, I'm about to post responses to the questions but just wanted to acknowledge the confusion earlier on replying to your questions. I'm guessing the notifications that you had responded to me didn't make it to my inbox so I replied without having seen them. I think we're synched up n...

Re: Requesting a guide

Hi Brett, Hi John, One more thing that I wanted to mention, may be a point of confusion. It seems we still "pretend" there's a self even though we know there isn't. And those who haven't seen the illusion obviously act as though there is a self. How does one live from the understanding amidst everyo...

Re: Looking for a Guide

Hey Scott, Hello John, Yes I read all the guidelines & disclaimer prior to asking. I'll set aside most of my spiritual practices. I meditate usually daily & have a yoga practice. I have a shamanic practice that I'll take time off from through this process. I sometimes meditate to darshan from Shirdi...

Re: Looking for a Guide

Hi Jivaro, I'm looking for a guide. I've been lead to this site through advice from an acquaintance. I'm a 63 yr. male in Midwest USA. I have completed a apprenticeship with a Native American medicine man. I have studied shamanism extensively with several shamans and have completed several initiatio...

Re: Looking to crash that gate!

Hi Iggy, AM I HERE? When relaxed, what is here is a stream of (involuntary) thoughts and sensations being experienced. The "I" thought may arise amongst these thoughts - sometimes it just passes, other times there's identification with it, leading to more I-related thoughts and resulting in notion t...

Re: Round Two

Lol 'not "you"'.

So, is no "you" showing up to no-one?

Thank you,

Re: guidance out of confusion

Randall, Thanks John. That was the first piece of direct guidance I received since coming here. Not sure if it will work for me but at least it is some direction. It is frustrating to repeatedly being told to "look" when not understanding how, where or for what to "look" for, hence the title of my t...

Re: guidance out of confusion

Randall, Appreciate the honest response! That's a good definition Randall, and can see how with such a definition, you'll really struggle with this inquiry. Only answering the questions honestly, as instructed. I used to believe I was "John" which included the union with the body, and then I saw tha...

Re: Looking to crash that gate!

Hi Iggy, Hi John, You are not an idea, a notion, a character, a "self". What's left? I used to believe "me" was the "thing that generated thoughts" or the "quiet, background feeling". Those turned out to be just thoughts and a sensation, not a "permanent" entity. Looking elsewhere found no *thing* a...

Re: Looking to crash that gate!

Hi iggy, Hi, Play with manipulating thoughts/images again - have fun :) - and as its happening ask, "Like seeing requires neither a seer or a seen, does manipulating require a manipulator or a manipulated? Watching closely it's just a sequence of thoughts. Images change first and then I-thought "cat...
