Re: Ok

Is thinking only story thelling then? no rality..I have to admit that really more than else I´m confused with this guestion. That's the thing. It's what's hidden and what makes you confused that you need to look into because that's where that which reiterates the existence of the self might be hidi...

Re: Ok

I've spend years seeking the 'truth'. It was my survival thing growing up, 'this is not reality/truth'. But looking from now perspective I really can not say anything is truth or that truth Even excsist or what it excactly is. Ok. I had to ask because like I said you use that word a lot and had to ...

Re: Ok

You use the word truth a lot and I want you to look into it and see whether truth is anything more than a concept made to interpret things one way or another? Is truth anything more than a mind-made construct? And what exactly is true in your experience and how did you reach that conclusion? How do ...

Re: Ok

Well if I look from the 'eyes of truth' ego dosen't excist. Because only truth exist so ego must be a dream. What is the t r u t h and what is t r u e on this plane? Over here we investigate everything. Nothing is sacred because the devil hides in the details :) And second, when you say "ego" (aka ...

Re: Had a glimpse and now working on seeing what I am not.

And what images are those? What about the questions I asked you haven't answered?
To me it looks like you're not even trying.

Re: Had a glimpse and now working on seeing what I am not.

What do you mean by "happy glow" or "heart space"? Here we speak about what IS in reality, about senses and sensations. It's hard to get anywhere if you don't get to the bottom of things and instead you use terms that could mean anything. Is everything clear with DE? If you look in front of you what...

Re: Had a glimpse and now working on seeing what I am not.

Hi Chris, There's a technique we use here called direct experience (aka direct pointing): DE is the original input one gets through SENSATIONS and SENSES, that tension you feel in your arm before labelling it as good (a tickle) or bad (a burn), the noise you hear before you interpret it as coming fr...

Re: Had a glimpse and now working on seeing what I am not.

Hi there, Welcome to LU. I would be happy to help you with your inquiry. For starters, when you say self, or "I", or persona, or anything along the line, what do you mean by it? And second, what would you say stops you from seeing through the illusion of the self right here right now? Do you feel st...

Re: A fish in the water is not thirsty

Hiya Just in case you don't hear from me in a while I'm hiking in the mountains and only come online during the evenings (if I'm not dead tired) so I'll get back to you eventually. The body is the vehicle for all sensations. No body, no sensations. So there is such a thing as a body? How do you know...

Re: A fish in the water is not thirsty

Is the "body" just another thought label for sensations (namely tactile & kinaesthetic)?

What about the other objects(nature, animals,people)? Is there a "you" that feels separated from them or is that just another thought/concept?

Re: am I woman, mother, daughter or even more

When I say "There is no you", is there any tension, any arising fear?] When I'm in a meditative status like practising there is no fear . In a thought focussed situation, when my brain is busy with doing lots of thinking and action orders for the body. Fear shows up very quickly, my heart beat fast...

Re: A fish in the water is not thirsty

Deep Looking is a very useful technique to solve some things especially strong emotions. Just remember that "heart" and "mind" are just tools to see through the object of your inquiry and not actual things. Also when struggling with what's going on inside and finding the right words to express in an...

Re: am I woman, mother, daughter or even more

Ok so what I got from you is that the "self" can be an energy connected to the body, something connected to awareness, something connected to an outside presence (Universe, Essence), something connected to thoughts and sensations. Let me know if I missed anything. It's... quite a lot hehe but it's a...

Re: A fish in the water is not thirsty

Now I also got the pinching exercise differently. It's not about enduring something and thus not labelling it 'pain', but it's feeling what is, until the label appears - or doesn't. YES YES YES!!!! That's it! And indeed the label doesn't even have to appear. You can just stay with the sensation. Of...
