Re: I would like to see and feel who I really am or I am not

Hi Researcher, great!
Let me know when you've read the articles.
Also, would be good to have an actual name by which to call you ... :-)

Re: I would like to see and feel who I really am or I am not

Hi there and welcome to LU! This is Fred, from France. Very nice to meet you. A few quick guidelines: look to post daily/regularly or post to say if a break is needed; and set aside any other spiritual practices during our inquiry together. If you have a regular meditation practice, that's fine, it ...

Re: I would like to start afresh

Hello Harshad, maybe there will be a change in how everything is perceived? Maybe ... maybe not. Does it matter? To whom or what? LOOK. I am also expecting this shift to not be something that lasts a few hours or days and then goes away, So you're expecting a (temporary) shift. What if that expectat...

Re: I would like to start afresh

Hi Harshad, At the plumb line of direct experience, there is nothing that exists in separation. However having seen that has had very little overall impact. What impact are you expecting? What should change? How should this seeing affect life? I want to make sure I don't simply replace old beliefs w...

Re: I would like to start afresh

Hi Harshad But if everything that can be 'known' is within the realm of thought, why not accept as true? Did I say they were un true? I'm only inviting you to question thoughts, here Harshad, not to dismiss them. Are you prepared to question all assumptions, with the plumb line of direct experience?...

Re: I don't understand the meaning of thread title.

Thank you, Cat, From now on I would like you to respond only from direct experience, what is seen, heard, felt, touched, sensed in this moment. Anything else is a mental response and does not serve this investigation. in experience we are talking about someone, ourselves... this body feels hungry, t...

Re: I would like to start afresh

Hi Harshad, The problem is that it seems nothing can be ‘known’ outside of thought. What then? Is it a problem? Who or what wants to know? Would it be OK not to know anything? ;-) On the other hand, thought is essential for me to be able to cook or procure food. If dinner time came, and there was no...

Re: I don't understand the meaning of thread title.

OK translate 'I am hungry', 'I eat an apple' and 'I was born ...

Re: I don't understand the meaning of thread title.

Hi Cat, Want to say "No" for your first question: "Could there be preferences, habits without an 'I'?" On the other hand want to say: existence can choose via from "I"... ohhhh don't know... so confused... if there is no "I"... I don't know, i don't know... Want to stay with this question for a whil...

Re: I don't understand the meaning of thread title.

Hi Cat If there is no habbits, preferences there won't be an "I". So "I" is a kind of builded, established thing. There is no choosing at all in the "whole", just being, to be... To rephrase, I think you mean that without habits, preferences, there isn't an 'I', correct? I would like you to consider...

Re: I would like to start afresh

Hi Harshad, For instance, when I'm narrating what happened to my father yesterday, I will continue to speak about it the same way I always have. It doesn't matter if there is no 'father' in direct experience, right? No one is asking you to change the way you speak. We all use 'I', 'you', etc, for co...

Re: I would like to start afresh

Hi Harshad, Isn't it beneficial, and maybe downright essential to be able to connect these dots on most accounts? I don't think someone who is unable to do this will be able to survive for too long!In that sense, some of these connections of dots need to be trusted.Without it, a person wouldn't be a...

Re: I don't understand the meaning of thread title.

Hi again Cat OK you have given me a lot about thoughts, debates. I would like to know what you SEE, if you take away all the running commentary ... like watching a tennis match without the commentator's voice. What do you SEE? After i choose purple Describe this 'I' that chooses. What does it look l...

Re: I don't understand the meaning of thread title.

OK! On to decisions ... Place three objects in front of you. Maybe three different-coloured pens. Then choose one of them and WATCH what happens. Don't IMAGINE you're doing it, really do it. The point of the exercise is to SEE, in real time. Consider the following questions: Do you see an 'I' that c...
