I just want to share where I am in my journey. I am not my mind and body. Body moves and I observe it. Sometimes I forget and get carried away but I go back to remembering that I am not this body. That every th ing is just it needs where to be. It just happens, so do my actions.

I just watch life now and enjoy most of the time until I get distracted. There's no happiness nor sadness, just watching. I feel emotions, but not identified with them.

I just feel like sharing it with you.

Cheers!
Sam

Hi Jed,

The only thing stopping me from not identifying with my body and mind is my love. In theory, I understand that my body does it and they are me. But it does not show in experience. I'm afraid to hurt them if I give up everything. I lack courage. Where do I find the courage for the truth?

If you love me, tell me what to do.

Sam

Further. First of all.

To get back with my concern.

What is there to fear? I'm not even talking.

Regards,
Sam

The truth is.

And in realizing that, I must give up everything. I think about it all the time. That I am not this, and not that.

Verbally, mentally then silently. I watch almost everything unattached unless I get distracted, then I go back from watching the show.

What is stopping me from getting what I have all along? Crossing the gateless gate?

Regards,
Sam

I practice awareness of awareness for sometine. And it is turtles all the way down.

The more focus I gave it, the deeper and more quiet my mind become.

Should I keep at it?

Sam

Hi Jed,

I am hanging out with my friends last night and we talked about "truth stuffs". So I said that life has no purpose and they said that "Why do anything? Why work? " So I said, "That is because you identify with your body. What you can perceive, you are not. "

I understand their confusion. If I am just the watcher, any action is as good as anything. Action or no action. But what makes me move? Do I really decide it or I am just(this body) product of innumerable causes?

Any thoughts?

Regards,
Sam

"Why do anything?" is a standard Maya/ego response... but contemplate this... you have never done anything anyways... you have just claimed a false ownership of actions that appear to arise and occur to you.. there is no ''you''. End of story.

Love ya, Jed.

I believe you when you say I am not my body. I just watch it... when there is no trouble. I get distracted when I have to do things to survive, for my family. How to deal with problems, just until I fully detached myself with what I am not?

Cheers
Sam

'"How to deal with problems, just until I fully detached myself with what I am not?"

I take things quite literally, please clarity you above sentence. Statements/assertions are just statements and questions are questions.

Thanks in advance.

Love ya, Jed.

Apologies. My question is, until I am not yet realized, what do I do with worldly troubles?
