Haven't I been here before?  Haven't I struggled with these questions before?  Maybe it's just me that would burn and suffer?  Maybe only me that does with the death of my character?  My kids?  I can't see beyond them.

And how the f do I know that "I am"?  How can I know that?  Is it not possible that my sense of being is also not verifiable?  But then if it is not, what matters. So we are taking my "I am" as ground zero?  Because otherwise there is no point to the rest of the pursuit?  If I'm a dream in someone else's mind, what does it then matter?  I must resolve that "I am" because it needs be and it is the one thing I have ever known/been?

The essence of or compulsion to eliminate delusion, the false, only has meaning if there is first "I am". Only matters if there is i am. There can only bee freedom if there is I am. Without some core essence of being, there is only darkness and automatron programs. This essence then that I know is it?

So - seems like that kernel of awareness or whatever you want to call it is the only thing I can ever know as true - that thing that has been pinging me my whole life. Okay. EVERYTHING else is false. Okay. But that false crap keeps getting in the way, cluttering up my mind. The person continues to react and emote to all the usual f-ing stimuli.  How do I clear the sky above?  I know it is untrue and unreal except my mind makes it real. How do I clear the sky Jed?

Seems like a long and long job to wait for every reaction and then write about it to get to the core belief. Is that the way?  If that is the way I'll try.

I need help with the money thing. It seems true that money is a requirement for survival. It facilitates the basic requirements of food and water and shelter. You have said that money is there when it is needed. Is that only for the jnani's of the world?  I would prefer not to be homeless in this life jed - I have a lot of money saved but not nearly enough that quitting work is an option. I cannot see past this. At all. Can you help me?  I will wait by the internet for your response while I try to work at this for myself.

Hi Hugh:

If you are really serious about clearing the garbage away, the Nav Series will provide the tools... but you (as always) must do the work.

Love ya, Jed

The money thing cleared up a bit for me. That's the "guy" again whining. Get rid of him and the money goes. But I have work to do on that front.

He'd, I'll go it alone for now - thanks for the invite. I'll write again when I'm stuck (might be in ten minutes 😳)

Hi Jed. Money. I know full well it's a made up part of this guy. Fine. Not sure how to cut it loose. I see it is a farce but can't seem to kill it off completely. Any recommendations?

What specifically do you want to cut loose from what? Getting specific is often a good place to start.

Let me know.

Cheers.

I thought it was dead. I thought I killed it but it is now very clear I haven't. I know it is just something my person identifies with. I know I made up the entire thing. I just don't know how to kill it off all the way.

You cannot kill it. You can only turn the lights on or open the shades, etc....  you let the light in.

Okay. Hmm. So I can't kill he bastard because what?? It ain't real?  Okay. That groks. Let the light in. Quit staring at it (metaphorically)?  But if it ain't dead won't it crawl back up behind me and grab me again?  I will pause and consider your words......

I'm obtuse. Do what?  I don't know how to let the bleeding light in Jed. Remove myself from all consideration of money? 

I buy and sell my own stocks in the market. Are you suggesting I just leave it all alone and let the current positions go where they will?  Sell everything?  Put $ in index funds?  Let someone else manage it? 

I'm still an infant here. Can't see in front of me.
