Re: Awakent

What is not allowed to freely come and go?
What should be different?

Re: Freedom Now

Thank you. The situation that you are presently in with all its emotions is here to be allowed to be. It’s here to be met fully. I mean, say yes to it. Yes and thank you, I see, this is what is present. Wishful thinking is a fantasy. What do you prefer? Fantasy or reality? Especially when fantasy is...

Re: Thread for JackSprat

Nice, yes, good description. This is where looking gets hard. A cloud, seemingly, cannot stop itself dropping acid rain. A human can, analogously, stop doing things that are harmful with wisdom about the results of their actions, and seeing more clearly the habits that inflict harm. Is this a choice...

Re: Awakent

Aha! And how does it feel to see this? Are thoughts free to come and go? Are thoughts about you, about the person, about the character welcome, or are they resisted?
Is responding/resisting welcome too?

write what you feel is true.
Love.

Re: Awakent

Maybe because
I know that "me" is just a word that
refers to me
Right. And where is that me precisely? Can you look at that me and tell what is there.

Re: Twisted Up

Very good. Yes, there is no ownership in nature. Are you a form of nature too? The voice speaks from the first perspective using words I me mine. Thoughts I me mine show up in the narrative ABOUT I me mine. If you talk all day about Pinocchio, does he become a real boy? Yes, Santa and red clothes ar...

Re: Freedom Now

. The inner voice is saying that I should have made different choices in the past. I should have done different things in the first place, that could have prevented the current situational suffering. Is that voice telling the truth? Do you believe that you could have acted differently in given situ...

Re: Thread for JackSprat

Thank you. Now let’s meet that sadness, it’s ok to feel it. Follow it. Feel it. Yes to it. Nothing real is lost. Nothing other than a fantasy is dropped. And what does that mean that lived is governing itself? Expand in this. Is there free will independent of all the factors that come together and r...

Re: Who am I?

Thank you. Still, it feels dualistic: it feels like there is sensations and somebody who is aware them. Interesting. Sensations and somebody that is aware of them? Is there a sensation without awareness of it? Look around with eyes open, there are colours and shapes. There is awareness of colours an...

Re: Thread for JackSprat

Good work, thank you! That lands totally fine. Just... I don't know.. passes right through. I as an entity that manages life does not exist. Fine with that - however - it recoil quickly because the mind drops into "then what is there?" meaning control-wise. Good question, what is here? How do you se...

Re: Looking at the gate

Trying to hold on is also just happening. Feel that sensation of trying to hold on. Is there an entity behind it? Is there a feeler of the sensation apart from sensation? The watcher.. there is watching, noticing, being aware. Are you doing it or is it happening? Here is a language exercise for you ...

Re: Awakent

Good work!
Now let’s look at language itself and how it creates an illusion of a doer.
Here is an exercise. http://markedeternal.blogspot.com/2012/05/labels.html
Do it here or on paper and tell me, how description of what is happening affect what is happening?

Enjoy
Love.

Re: Freedom Now

Then it all shifted back to me being the doer person again. Things have shifted back to me doing whatever I'm doing and once again the mind chatter is saying that I should have done this or I should have done that in the past. The conditioned patterns are very sticky! Yes, the conditioned patterns ...

Re: Awakent

Why isnt everything happenning without a me..or at least why dont I see it. This is a wrong question to ask. Why question requires an explanation for an answer and explanation is never the truth, it’s something that you believe because you want to believe at that moment. So let’s drop the question ...

Re: Awakent

Thank you. You say that you see that actions responses are happening without a me. What is happening with me as a doer? What is not happening on automatic, naturally and effortlessly? Does narrative about me requires me to talk about it? Is narrative a response that is happening or that is done by y...
