Re: Round Two

Look at "So why is the belief in self still around?" - is this true? *shrug* it's around if I'm not looking into direct experience enough. Even if it were, is it personal? No. Oh fuck direct experience (pardon my french) :) Is "I" really held together by a belief and some sticky tape? You're either...

Re: guidance out of confusion

Simply put, I see "you, me, I" as a union of the the physical body and mental/psychological capabilities. How do you see it? Randall That's a good definition Randall, and can see how with such a definition, you'll really struggle with this inquiry. I don't have a definition. Couldn't give a shit ab...

Re: guidance out of confusion

No John. An entity that is living and breathing isn't a concept, it is real. Your definition of "you" doesn't appear to align with mine. I don't see where you are going. This path seems like a dead end.

Cool. What would be your definition of 'you'?

Thank you,
John

Re: Looking to crash that gate!

Morning :) Notice when looking, where the looker sits. You may need eyes in the back of your head. I no longer see a looker. Read something on another thread here that made me realise the looker is just an assumption. The direct experience is simply the visual image itself without reference to any o...

Re: guidance out of confusion

entity
Is this the entity formerly known as the concept "Randall"?

Are you a living breathing concept?

Re: guidance out of confusion

That's easy John, the speaker and listener are one and the same.
One and the same what?

Re: guidance out of confusion

Hey Randall, John, I've spent a good deal of time with this and the knower is always present as internal dialog that is alternatively critical, analytical, judgmental, whimsical, delusional, approving, disapproving, and on and on. So yes, this knower, knows all these things and more as it never seem...

Re: Looking to crash that gate!

Hey Iggy,
Feels like there is something blocking "understanding" from turning into "fully seeing"... Looking and looking... seeing nothing at the moment... frustrating!
Notice when looking, where the looker sits. You may need eyes in the back of your head. :)

Re: Round Two

Hey King Nothing, I'm starting to see that it's not, but there's resistance to really getting it, letting go of 'ownership' of all experiences, intentions, etc and seeing that they're all like wind blowing. But what is there to own them, what's there to realise any of this, or release anything? When...

Re: Looking to crash that gate!

Hey Iggy, Hello John, Let this question inside and see what shows up. So, here and now, going directly to any familiar sensation of self - is this who you are? No, it's just a sensation. It's a feeling that's present when there isn't another (stong) feeling or thought occurring. It's almost a gap or...

Re: Looking to crash that gate!

Hi Iggy, Hi Now, its not only hand closing/opening that happens this way, but reading these words, breathing, thoughts come and go, walking around. Experience that. I can see that now much of the time. Walking around the house, chatting with my wife, reading websites, etc. All happening naturally wi...

Re: Round Two

Hi King Nothing,
Physical movement is just an event and there's no need to involve an idea of self in it, it's like the wind blowing or grass growing. The intention to move happens, then there is motion.
Is the sensation called "me" any more personal than the wind blowing?

Thank you,
John

Re: Requesting a guide

Hi Brett,

Just share what comes up with the questions, and we'll go from there. If there's something else you'd rather explore first, that's fine too.

With best wishes,
John

Re: Looking to crash that gate!

Hi Iggy, Been trying this a few times... Changed to just tapping finger when hands got tired! After a while with eyes closed fingers moving felt like it was happening automatically, without any controller/effort. Opened eyes and watching moving fingers felt kind of distant/separate. Like watching an...

Re: Looking to crash that gate!

Hi Iggy, "realising that what's behind this notion of "me" could just be a thought about a thought (and so on and on and on...)! " Curl and unfurl the hand several times. Close the eyes and do this. With the eyes closed, hold the possibility, the notion, that no "self" is doing this. Feel deep into ...
