LU is focused guiding for seeing there is no real, inherent 'self' - what do you understand by this?
For "me" and most people the "self" feels so real. I have listened to Tony Parsons and co. for 8 years now and I can intellectually say with confidence that there is no self. Everything is emty. BUT I have not seen it for myself. I have just heard others words about it and it resonates. I have not seen "it".

What are you looking for at LU?
I would like to get guidence to see for "myself" that there is no self. I want to get rid of the feeling of being separate. I want to get rid of the feeling of always trying to get better, the constant strive to find solutions to life. I see intellectually how crazy it is to feel, think and act like a separate being, but I can't seem to get rid of the deep feeling of being a separate self.

What do you expect from a guided conversation?
I will be honest. I am a bit sceptic that anyone can help "me" to find this. Because I have listened so many years to "speakers" that have repeated so many times that there is no one to be helped and no one that can help. BUT still, I have some hope that LU will help me to dispell the illusion by asking me "the right" questions.

What is your experience in terms of spiritual practices, seeking and inquiry?
The last about 9 years I have done all sorts of meditations and practices, from TM to Sadhguru-meditation. I have also attended coutless so called non-duality meetings, and I have also had several one-to-one meetings with so called non-duality-speakers.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how willing are you to question any currently held beliefs about 'self?
10

Good morning!

Apologies for the one month wait.

First, the difference between listening to talks & what we do here is that we don't talk "about" no self. We point. You LOOK. This is a very experiential process.

My name is Stacy and I can be your guide, if you would like.

One thing I want to make very clear up front is that with me, you must post every day. If you know yourself and your schedule are such that you cannot do this, tell me, "no," and someone else can guide you, please.
Yes, if once in a while you must post later, please post a note telling me when you will return.

If you haven't already read the disclaimer, please read it now and just confirm to me that you have read it. Here is the link.

http://liberationunleashed.com/disclaimer-2/

Also please read “Liberation Unleashed is not …” in the FAQ’s of LU. Here is the link.

http://liberationunleashed.com/about/faq/#faq-1041

Some housekeeping guidelines:

1. Post at least once a day, or every second day. If you need more time, or are unable to post for several days, just write a quick post on your thread to let me know please.

2. There is no one judging answers given, so please be 100% honest in your answers and inquiry.

3. This exploration is based on actual experience (AE) - smell, taste, sound, sensation, color and observed thoughts. Long-winded analytical and philosophical answers are best avoided and may even hinder progress. This is not a self-improvement process. There is no ‘self’ to improve.

4. Put aside all other teachings, philosophies, rituals, practices, books/reading and so on for the remainder of this investigation. Really put all your effort and attention in to seeing this reality, as it is. If you have a daily meditation practice, it is fine to continue that but is not necessary for this exploration.

Technology is not perfect and sometimes there is a glitch which can wipe out your responses. It is advisable that you copy and paste questions asked into Word, answer them there and then copy and paste them to your thread. Always save a copy of what you have done, it will save time in the long run!

To begin with, so that we both become aware of what your expectations are about this exploration. In your own words (not from actual experience, but just honest answers), could you please answer the 4 following questions:

How will life change?
How will you change?
What will be different?
What is missing?


Throughout this exploration I would like you to answer all questions that I have written in blue text. Please answer all questions even if I miss using the blue text.

Please answer questions individually, remembering to use the quote function to highlight the question being answered.

Below is a link to the video with instructions on using the Quote Function. Please watch it. Use the PREVIEW button to make sure your text looks right before you hit "SUBMIT."

What would you like for me to call you? What time zone are you in, please?

Loving,
~ Stacy
