Hello Jed,

My dog bit someone. I feel anxious about that. But conceptually, I understand that everything that has happened is not real, and it does not matter. Right now, I resolved the problem. But the point I am driving is this: how to live a life of non-attachment?

I realize that what matter is I realized that there is 'nothing' and 'no one' and I get it, conceptually. But it does not translate with emotions, anxiety, fear even if I try to relax and think that everything is just an illusion.

I'll get back from the start. I am confused.  Do you have any suggestions? I think I am lost. Or maybe the 'lost' is the only way that could be.  ???

Ttys,
Sam

Hi Sam;

That's a good question. It's what Stage One of the Nav Series is about. There is an adjustment if you will, both pre and post T/R. It's usually ignored by teachers. No idea why. T/R is not a guarantee that all will be fine with the balance of your ''personal'' life, or even your ''enlightened'' life. It can very disruptive in the extreme.

Your mental  concepts will "... not translate with emotions, anxiety, fear even if I try to relax and think that everything is just an illusion.". Probably the best advice I could give you is learn how to breath properly. Few humans do.

Love ya, Jed.

Hey yah!

Gotcha Jed! I'll just accept the experience, relax, and breathe properly.

As for 'mental concepts', I sometimes forget the T/R is not head/heart thing - it's further.

Thank you!
Sam

What's up Jed!

Long time!

My problem is the "abiding" in abiding non-dual awareness, I am aware but it is not abiding. I guess it's not really a problem but somehow the realization of truth is not fully "realized" (if it is, I won't be asking question to you anymore.) I just want to know what is your thoughts on this. A silly question form a silly person.

Thanks Jed,
Sam

To want it is to block  it.

Hey Jed,

There is no me, no desire and emotions. I still feel it, but I know that I am not it. I accept it, but I am not it. I am just here, but it is not me. It's just, like, floating consciousness. If it is possible, I'll do nothing. In the present, there is nothing to do. But somehow, the past(everything) is humming behind my head. Is it the ego(me) trying to be alive?

Right... further.

Sam

Certainly sounds like it. Maya/ego is durable, subtle and capable of a multitude of masks.

Just stick with what you are doing.

Love ya, Jed.

Hey Jed,

Quick question. Now, how to live? Decisions are still necessary but if there is no "me", what actions should I take?

And hypothetically, how about physical pain? I am not sick or something but if ever, I have some permanent disease and it brings so much discomfort, how do you deal with that?

Thank you for clarification,
Sam

Something/someone that is not me.

Thanks Jed.

What's up Jed!

Most of the time, I just observe the things that I am not. If I lose my conscious awareness, I go back the thought 'I am' this somehow reminds me to go back to being the silent observer towards which I am not.

Now, is it okay to use the thought 'I am' as a crutch to go back with my conscious awareness?

Regards,
Sam

Let's start by asking what you expect to get from '' am not''.

Please explain.

Love ya, Jed

Hi Jed,

If I know what 'I am not' is, then 'I am' is left. The 'I am' that is always present  but clouded by delusions of ego.

Regards,
Sam
