Re: Stop Resisting

Hello Nuss Good to hear from you. . For many, it is clearly not possible to find an entity...but then it would seem, in spite of that, it is thought that "nothing changes".... Correct. Or there are recurring thoughts inquiring about the true clarity of that moment: "how clear was that moment?" "did/...

Re: Stop Resisting

Hi Nuss What clear descriptions of the sensations and thoughts that can be noticed in relation to "anxiety". Thank you. A guide, direct-pointing, might well ask "what is or where is the "self" that is imagined to be experiencing all this? And I bet you are familiar with that kind of question? For ma...

Re: Stop Resisting

Hello Nuss I had written to you and , I thought, posted the reply here but it seems that I lost it. Never mind. What I was writing was about these thoughts of "inadequate inquiry" or "inadequate effort", as if there's someone that has to judge and decide what constitutes "proper inquiry". Just notic...

Re: Stop Resisting

Hi Nuss Thank you so much for your reply. . The problem is I don't always make time for myself. I was just talking with a couple friends about this. I allow thoughts of inadequacy and striving into putting too many responsibilities on my plate or working extra hours to complete various projects. The...

Re: Stop Resisting

Hello Nuss, It isn't really working for us to exchange once a week. I know that I said something like 'take your time' with responding to my posts and you warned me that you are busy. However it is true that most of the successful conversations I have been involved with were where both guide and cli...

Re: Stop Resisting

Hello Nuss . I was rear-ended by another car on my way to a morning meditation sitting. Sadly, the driver quickly left the scene, leaving me with some new marks on my bumper and a louder muffler. It was easy to give into the self in that moment. God how annoying. . "They hit ME," "They damaged MY ca...

Re: How to stop searching

Hi Nastia,

Thank you for writing and I perfectly understand.

Listen, if, after a while, you want to look some more or feel that the search is not finished, just get in touch and we can chat more. But I respect what you've said about there being no motivation .

Lots of love.

Jon

Re: How to stop searching

Aaargh! Apologies again. Another mistake. Please ignore the last correction it should be:
. Whatever insights may come it is likely that doubts about seeing the illusion will have lost traction.
( I had posted from my mobile phone and predictive text kept changing the words 😂)

Re: How to stop searching

Hi Nastia,

There was a mistake...Where I wrote:
. Whatever insight may come it is unlikely that doubts about seeing the illusion will have lost traction.
I ment to say "it is likely that doubts about seeing the illusion will have lost their reaction "

Re: How to stop searching

Hi Nastia . Well, I can't find any doubts currently. The last doubts about permanence of seing doesn't bother anymore. And no other doubts can be found. Thanks. Lovely... But to some extent it needs to be a confidence that it is "seen" , not just that there are no doubts. This confidence does not ha...

Re: Stop Resisting

Hi Nuss . There are many times where anxiety arises about something that may happen in the future, and that imaginary situation will play out as a thought. Sometimes I actually say or practice what I would say in that moment, allowing the stress to stew even more. That situation hasn’t even happened...

Re: How to stop searching

Hi Nastia . Did I make it more clear now? Or do I need to expand it? You've made it very clear. Thanks Nastia. Well, I was asking those questions so that I could be clear about how it's seen. That there is no separate self and never was one? Now, given all you've said, are there any doubts that the ...

Re: How to stop searching

Hi Nastia Perhaps there is no neat theory of how this all works? Just that it does all happen... somehow? Or at least there is no theory that could be evidenced. =) Perhaps. Yes. That's true. Of course theories can appear. There can be stories or detailed theories about "how things happen". If we st...

Re: Stop Resisting

Hello Nuss It's good to hear that allowing the feelings to just be is helpful. Well done for trying this out. It's interesting that this could be tried under a variety of circumstances. Yes I really know what you mean by the impulse to "accomplish things". Do let me know how you get on with this? It...

Re: How to stop searching

Hi Nastia . it is clear that there is no I who would experience an experience. But it is not really clear how is it. The exact technology. But it's the same with the “I don't get it” about which I’ll answer later. Yes. It does seem that there's no experiencer of experience to be found, but experienc...
