Thanks guys.
I'm struck by the resonance and diversity of our responses. I love how we all resonate with regard to who we really are and then (as WW says) imagination takes over with respect to how the world could be laid out.

It's such a blessing to be part of a forum that celebrates diversity of realization while still staying true to awakening. As Andy would say, what a wonderful little blue island we have here.

Hope to hear from some more of you!

7. Do you have a favorite practice?

Qi Gong. I practice in the morning for 35 minutes. I can alternatively focus on various parts of my body and increase energy flow, choose to shift attention away from negative thoughts, simply be in the moment, or solve a vexing problem.
Be present, be pleasant.

I love your games RT :) you have some great ones. I imagine you're good at a Christmas party ;)

1. What is your primary identity?
The One!

2. Are you a person/body?
In a 'lesser' sense, yes! It Is, and so it is valid. But I am also more!

3. Is the world real?
Yes! It's all real! It's all Me!

4. Is there anything to do?
Haha, what!? Yes! Of course! What would you like to do?!

5. How would you define Life in a word?
The-Me-Experience!

6. What is your best analogy for Life?
By 'Life' are you referring to the human experience of life? In which case I would say a lived-dream but I see Life as transcending the human experience, so 'It Is What It Is!' / 'I Am That I Am'

Favourite practice:

Being Myself in the absence of psychological defence as I live the human experience I have created for myself.

Love,

Jack

Can't resist your fun and games RT. When's the prize draw? :D

1. What is your primary identity?

Anything that feels like a primary identity is a yet another temporal expression of that which is.

2. Are you a person/body?

Yes, this is how I'm expressed.

3. Is the world real?

Yes, but it's not how/what we think it is.

4. Is there anything to do?

No and yes. No, it's all being done - even when I'm convinced that it isn't. So (yes) do whatever you're moved to do - you can't put a foot wrong... how liberating.

5. How would you define Life in a word?

Utterly Now (okay, that's two :D)

6. What is your best analogy for Life?

3D film

7. Do you have a favorite practice?

Pay attention to what is, as it is happening… Soon the 'what is' will recede and the happening will show itself.

There is no one to do anything.
