Awakening to no-self

Postby Samanthaqqz » Sat Jun 29, 2024 10:03 pm

LU is focused guiding for seeing there is no real, inherent 'self' - what do you understand by this?
My understanding is that there is nothing there but a story… no gender, age, assumptions. We are beyond the stories and conditioning we chose to believe in. There is only presence, no past or future. We are only observing and identifying with the thought, but behind the thought is awareness.

What are you looking for at LU?
I am looking for a mentor to help guide me through this process. I’ve had a few awakenings but i have not had one of the mind. I am still identified with thought, which continues to cause suffering. I’ve had experiences of the truth through my awakenings and in fleeting moments but nothing long-term that i feel really sticks.

What do you expect from a guided conversation?
Some structure, insight and practices that can help me experience no- self at a deeper level. I think guided conversation can help me feel there is progress being made and help catch me when I am identified with the false self. Catching those small “things” that keep me “trapped” preventing me from moving forward.

What is your experience in terms of spiritual practices, seeking and inquiry?
I’ve meditated and have been heavily seeking since my spiritual awakening last year. I have recently began self- inquiry.

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

Good morning

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

We are not dso much "moving forward" as staying still. Right here. Right now. No "self." Nothing to see here. Just life life-ing.

It is helpful to come to this forum & post every day.

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.

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

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?

Thank you Stacy. Thank you for your time and help. I appreciate it! You may call me Sam or Samantha. My time zone is EST.

I have read the disclaimer and agree.

How will life change?

I don't know how my life will change.

How will you change?

I don't know how I will change. I think I will live with more presence and awareness. Less attachment to thought.

What will be different?

Less attachment to false self, the character. More awareness of true self.

What is missing?

Nothing. Detachment to thought.
