I feel frustrated,  sad and anxious at the same time.  I feel like I understand what's happening in my head,  but I don't know how to go further.

On a second thought,  I understand that,  that thing that feels sad is not me. It doesn't really affect me.  But somehow I still call it "me" .  I am still identified with the ego. That makes me more sad,  but I still know my awareness / consciousness  doesn't feel sad.  It's like I'm in the middle of something. In fact,  I'm dazed and confused.

Thanks Jed,  I didn't say thanks. 
😊

I received this email today

"Without the meditative mind and experience, the Dhamma cannot arise in the heart, because the Dhamma is not in words. The Buddha was able to verbalise his inner experience for our benefit, to give us a guideline. That means we can find a direction, but we have to do the travelling ourselves." - Ayyā Khemā

Thanks Jed!!!! I just got why you said "you are welcome".

I understood what Mooji was trying to say, the same thing you are telling me. There's nothing there, no witness, just nothing.


Thanks again! You put the perfect words, I felt that answer like an insight.

Jed,  I'm just being more and more. I'm happy. Thanks,  I was reading posts of you giving advice to others and you gave me some insights. Thanks.

I'll be writing you about the Nav Series tonight. 

I just wanted to tell u that,  no questions at the moment.

I think I have a question now Jed. How do you kill the ego without creating a new ego. Maybe better than the other,  but an ego anyway.  Thanks.

Don't try to kill it, because, as you point out, that creates more. I suggest you gently, lovingly, and with patience and understanding, love the little b a s t a r d to death.

Love ya, Jed.
