Direct Questions to see through the ILLUSION of the JIVA

Postby georgschiller » Sat Apr 09, 2016 11:36 am

In case anybody is interested to directly see that there is no separate I, thinker, DOER, Chooser, etc. I summarized the Direct Poining questions from "Liberation Unleashed.com".
The questionnaire has to respond from his/her DIRECT experience. It is important that only direct experiences (here and now) are allowed as replies.

The approach is very similar to Direct Path but shorter and neutral in its language.


Is there a hearer that hears?
A seer that sees?
Do you find an I that experiences experience?

Doer:
Get up and walk slowly, do you control walking?
Or is there just walking happening?

Chooser:
How do you make a choose?
Are choices just run on automatic?
Describe how choosing happens

Thinker:
"are YOU the thinker of thoughts?
can YOU think and choose a thought?"
or are thoughts just happening?

Body:
"does the body experience sensations and thought?
or
is the "body" just another thought label for sensations (namely tactile & kinesthetic)?"

What does the "I" (Jiva) or "me" point to, here and now?
Please describe in detail "I". What shape, size and quality does it have?

There is no separate you! Never will be and never has!
What comes up?
