Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob!

Thank you for this. It is indeed a holiday here today in the UK. I have been invited out for the day at short notice and so will respond to this later - sorry for the short notice. Not an easy few days for you!

Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob!

Carry on! When you are ready, report back as explicitly as possible about what is happening with this inquiry.

Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob!

The battery metaphor works well for me, too. The thing you have to be careful of is that it is a metaphor of time and process. This is how it can work for many - but big shifts can happen, too, quite suddenly. One never knows! :-)

Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob! Its funny, when openings happen, they're not necessarily experienced in terms of self/no-self. More like a letting go and a relaxing into experience accompanied by bound-up energy being released and becoming available. I have a feeling these are all descriptions of the same process though...

Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob! Lovely to read your post! :-) Hard for me to keep attention on my feet, easier to stay with the breath/body (its like meditating). But when I am with the body, I'm just with the body - there's no waiting. Waiting is so interesting. What is it that needs to wait for something that is alrea...

Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob! On second thought though, what also resonated was his speaking about how his "peak experience" of selflessness had no importance, but that it gave him permission to acknowledge what had already unfolded and to begin to live from it. Yes! I love this! Awakening is not to be living a contin...

Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob! I'm not sure. Feeling stuck today and "answers" aren't arising... No worries, that’s OK. It’s what is arising. No one is there to change that. :-) more helpful question might be ‘What is experiencing this?’ When I ask this question, the shift that arises is similar to the headless shift. ...

Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob! When there is the sense that there is a watcher, the thought arises that this is dual (the watcher vs what is watched). If I understand what you're saying, whether this sense is there or it isn't , the actuality is that there is no self? Yes, it’s very simple, isn’t it? :-) There can be a...

Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob! I'm glad that the meeting went well. We've discussed this issue before, and you've pointed out that whatever is watching isn't a discrete, limited "thing". But the sense that there is a watcher "back there" persists. Actually though (I'm thinking out loud here!), that's not always true! L...

Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob! There's a Rupert Spira video that I believe is called "Why am I not enlightened yet". About a woman who has meditated for decades and is desperate to awaken. His answer is terrific and he talks about relaxing into experience in a very powerful way. Thanks for that, I have just watched it....

Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob! I hope you've been enjoying the day! Its warm and beautiful out here. It was lovely and sunny in Brighton yesterday, thanks for asking. :-) Yes, when those statements arise, they are often followed by a shift into direct experience. By the way, it helps for me to think of this as a relaxi...

Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob! It helps me to keep it simple during the day. For example, when I remember, I ask "what is happening here" or a little talk arises like "there is no one in charge - everything is just happening". And then of course there's "blah, blah, blah" or "what needs protecting". These kinds of ques...

Re: Looking forward to this!

Hello Bob! Thanks for your post and prepare yourself - this is a long reply! It’s so helpful that you describe your experience so well! It really helps me to get a sense of what is going on, and it is a place I recognise and remember. In terms of the second assignment, when "simple tasks" are happen...
