Thank You
« on: December 06, 2016, 02:12:25 pm »
Thank you Jed for moving my boat further downriver these last few years (in a slow learner 😉). I appreciate it and love you for it. Thank you too for your unintended recommendation of the Maharaj. I am falling in love with him.

I still have more mountains to climb, so much so that it is only when I look back that I see how far I have come and indeed that I have moved at all. But it is true. Visiting you here now is different from before. This is of course much more difficult than I could have known. And I am still wracked with fear at times but also with gratitude when another thing is broken up. And I have this feeling more and more like I'm just drifting unmoored. The overwhelming mess of "nothing" is the greatest irony is it not?

I humbly thank you again.

Hi Jed. Say, I'm pondering this body thing (paradox maybe). Is it possible to know what I truly am; to know what I "was" before the body?  I believe the answer is yes. I understand that knowing does not mean "understanding" in any intellectual way. And "nothing" isn't very satisfying. Ho hum.

Anyhoo, is it possible? Thanks.

p.s.  I want to read what you say but I won't believe you. Haha.

Yes, yes, read everything I say as intently as you can, and never, ever believe me. Find out there is no you for yourself.

In my experience, the answer to your question is yes, but as you point out, it's different kind of knowing, a  knowing  that doesn't require and faith or belief, just a knowing.

Love ya, Jed.

Blurg. Thanks for the answer Jed. I don't believe you and yet I know it's true. I knew before I asked.

Hi again Jed. I came here to speak of my latest sight but I do not need verification. Still further to go. Allowing the unfolding to occur. Must be within me. Not without. I may return if there is need to help with an obstacle.  For now, the mist seems to be clearing.

I had a brief understanding, or rather "rendezvous" with unencumbered awareness and the knowing of "not two" - which is not accurate. Neither is "one." But no need for labeling.

Thank you for all you have done. You are part of MY universe; MY consciousness. And I am grateful.

Further.

Time. The ultimate waster of people. Not I, nor any of them will be spared. All will perish. So why not Truth?

Yes. Why not?

Why not that which cannot be further reduced?  Only Nothing cannot be further reduced. Now can "I" bow out and leave the experience of what is only?  Can I know it now. Can I live the non-pretending life?

Hi Jed. Maybe you're just beaten down with all this dream crap whipping you like a poor step child. Why aren't you calling me out on my makyo?  You expect me to do it for myself?  Why do I come here?  Where's the wake up call (so to speak)? 

The guy ain't dead yet.

No value in me calling your out... this human experience is a DIY project, now get your lazy ass out and do it...

It's hopeless... totally hopeless... so you might start by giving up... not pretending to, but really doing it.... GIVE UP NOW!

Love ya, Jed.

Jed. I don't know how to give this character up!  I don't know what to do to kill it. I know it's all bullshit but I'm clearly afraid to let go. I don't know what to write to help myself. So many are and will suffer!  How can I cause that?  They don't know they are actors. They will all suffer. But I am so done with suffering. I want to be done but I can't hurt them. Sh1t. Arjuna.

Is this how it always is?  I have thought about this before.....and known intellectually what it meant but I guess I thought I could get around it or that it only applied figuratively. I see the potential casualties arrayed in front of me and am frozen. I don't think I can go on.

And what if in my pursuit to rid myself of this character I get there and end up just lost?  Without family and friends and nowhere worth living?  What then?  Is it worth burning everything when I don't know where that leads?  It may lead to a lost life wandering, babbling hallucinations for the remainder of a wasted life. I'm serious here. How can I take a road of destruction when I don't know where it leads except to destruction and suffering for those who love me.
