Re: What is the most direct way to realize "I" does not exist?

Well if I am not responsible for my self I will think it is Ok for negativity to come through me and make the people around me more negative while I justify it as 'not mine', as in not my responsibility to get rid of it or, I am not responsible for letting it in in the first place. I see this is mos...

Re: self's effect on existence

I see Enigma, you are forever negating substance and substantive 'stuff' and that is valuable. But my question is the about terminal mess 'I' have made of existence, it appears of no consequence to nondualism.

Re: What is the most direct way to realize "I" does not exist?

Well, an insight which is gelling from this inquiry is that it's not about change. There is no volition to change or to be better or different. Ego stays. Identities stay. Sense of self stays. Thoughts, emotions, the rest stay. It's just they are not my ego, or my identities, or my sense of self. T...

Re: What is the most direct way to realize "I" does not exist?

Maybe this ego thing isn't all bad. Instead of trying to eliminate it outright, it could be wiser to understand its nature. Pointing to it makes its presence recognizable, but then what? WW This is what I am doing. By knowing my self that neutralizes the selfish bits and I am left in the pure self ...

Re: self's effect on existence

Yes, I say nothing on the screen causes anything on the screen to happen. So do you see the invisible self(that doesn't exist) to be on the screen? And I hear what you are saying in the second part of your post. Perhaps what those other perspectives are perceiving is the original reality in the psy...

Re: What's up with my dinner guests?

Exactly it goes against the grain of the explanation "there is only the Source" Why would Source need to experience this kind of delusion through billion of humans day after day? I see it as my self is ignorant of Source. I suffer according to my ignorance of Source. The suffering produces detachmen...

Re: self's effect on existence

It has been told and has not been faulted It is true that existence is dependent on the 'brain'. No brain/body, no existence. This has been told and appears to be true. Yet self can appear and dissipate without seeming to affect the overall projection of nature and the rest. But subtly we see the fo...

Re: Can't find a job.

What are your hobbies? Some times an enthusiasm for an activity can create job opportunities with ease. I suppose a kind of law-of-attraction thing.

Re: self's effect on existence

Thank you for this enigma. Yes the body is in the movie. But it does appear to be at the centre of the movie, providing a porthole into existence.

Am I right to think that you are saying that self has no effect on circumstance?

self's effect on existence

Does any one have an insight into the self's effect on existence? My own sense, based on the inspiration of the teacher Barry Long is that it does. If the body is the projector of existence what is in the body is going to affect the projection. And this influences circumstance. Any insights are appr...

Re: Thinking is driving me insane

If you are emotional you will not stop thinking. Thinking, like you describe is powered by emotion, the self that you feel you are, in the subconscious and you are not seeing that. When you look for your self it will distract you with anything that is not right in your life. It is the guardian to th...

Re: Nonviolence absolute?

Nonviolence is a reaction to the violence in the subsconscious, so it is conditional. It is based on the condition of violence.

Re: What is the most direct way to realize "I" does not exist?

To suggest that the subconscious (or thinking, not sure what you meant) can't stand the presence of your consciousness also makes no sense to me. Consciousness is always present whenever you are conscious. If what you mean is that noticing unconscious stuff makes it conscious, I'll buy that, though...
