Knowing points to thought. Recognition points to the recognizer? There is something here right? I am here. I must recognize. It isn't just happening right? There has to be something here to recognize?
You did a good looking. Knowing is intellectual.
Recognition is spontanious, but does recognition implies someone?
What if there is just recognising?
The beleif is that there must be something or someone to recognize.
But is this so in reality?
What if recognition happen spontaniusly to no one?
you said this
Life playing out. Nothing else is here.
There has to be something here to recognize
Who or what is claiiming that?
When observed the feeling goes away and experience is left.
Who or what can start or stop identification with a thougth?
Yes. The energy stays for a while then leaves when it leaves. Observing it stops identification with thought.
Look Is there something? Something solid, real?
There is no response when I do this.
You can try again if this feeling/sensation appears. No rush, approach it gently.
It felt strange this evening. As I was walking my dog I felt detached. It was like the head was empty but at the same time there was a lot of anxious energy in the body. A lot of frustration and anger too. It went away after a while but the experience was intense.
Thank you for sharing this with me. It is common, somethimes the ride is tough.
And anything can happen, all kind of energies can arrise and they are welcome to arrise, We are all humans.
In the midst of a storm is dificult to look, but when the water is calm look
Do these feelings belong to someone?
Next when you go for a walk.
Walk for a while, sit somewhere and look arround. Trees, flowers, insects, birds, people's chatters, children's playing, sensations in the body, thoughts including the thought of I, Simon am sitting, looking and observing- all this is just one happening. Look at what is present and answer these questions:
Can the character chooses what to feel, what to think, whether go for a walk or not?
Does the character choose this story?
Can it chooses another story, a different one, instead of what already is?
Can the story of Simon be seen as what it is - just a story, including Simon?
Please, look very carefull all the given questions, do not rush to reply. Spent whole day looking and spent another day with the last questions when walking.
I will be able to reply each morning now, but I will completly understand if you want to try with another guide.
Also if you are willing we can also have a zoom chat for a while one of the next days, it really help to soften the experience.
Look. There is no you dreaming.
