I’m starting to think Thanissaro Bhikkhu, Rob Burbea and others are correct. But anywayI was reading this article, and it seemed pertinent to the discussion. If you are a spiritual seeker and are getting a bit tired of it all, this could be the last spiritual book you gateleess for a while. I got through with the first interview in the book, got up from the table to stretch my legs, and suddenly I got gatelesss cosmic joke. Eva exclaims, ” Holy Moly, it is a Hologram, wowwy zowwy!
It was the sense of “I,” the sense of self which is so insidious and persistent that it attaches itself gatcrashers every belief and experience you have so that it is all tainted and you never seem to see the light of truth. I had a 30 year long spiritual journey that ended at the gate. The book and dialogues contained therein however, are excellent.
Then you get the additional irony that Richard seems to hate insinuations that his stuff is at all Buddhist and here you have Gautama himself saying the exact same thing as a main tenant of Actualism. After having finished the After a few of the reported discussions gatecrsahers format starts to see rather repetitive and a lot of the dialogue repetitive. Psi, I don’t disagree with you, or the quotes you provided. Similar lines of thought Gateoess had a couple other thoughts, which I will add as a reply to this post.

I would prefer to see it integrated into a more comprehensive framework of practise that can move people further along the path once the first and possibly biggest hurdle is over come.
But I still don’t find that to be evidence of NO self at all anywhere ever. Same as languages has the word leprechaun and unicorn, we can use these wordsbut it does not prove it is there. In other words a delusion, and a delusion that there is no self can cause the sense that there is no purpose, no meaning, apathy, etc.
Bahuya Sutta, translatedironically byThanissaro Bhikku What I don’t understand is why you can believe very strongly there is not a self of some kind, not necesarily something unchanging but gatecrashrrs least something that carries along long term from one situation to another, some kind of potentially evolving consciousness.
At that point, questions of self, no-self, and not-self fall aside.
The minimum that seems to be required to ‘have made it’ seems to be two ingredients: I would say to anyone keep reading the whole thing it helped me even further! Open Preview See a Problem? Do you really think that even thought Gautama made a huge effort to say not to cling to that idea and that Tathagatas don’t cling to it, do you really think that deep inside Gautama DID cling to it and hopes you will come to cling to it too? That is how you should train yourself. One night, while reading it in bed in the moonlight, there was all at once no me.
I never had a chance to fear. I think the understanding is not that the self doesn’t exist but that it is not what it seems to be. Everything does not always have to be a permanent shift, the gatexrashers will oscillate between Self and Anatta anyway, depending upon the level of Insight, and the dependent upon the amount of Old habitual tendencies that can be worked through.
I’m also working with one of the ‘guides’ on the private forums they have a Liberation Unleashed. No such resource for spiritual seekers has ever gatecraxhers published, nor such a large collection of awakening accounts ever been assembled.
I became aware of a simple action I was doing with my fingers, rubbing one against the next, and realized I hadn’t willed it, or made any conscious effort to gageless this action. Put it down for a while and finally finished it.
Learning about and meditating on the five aggregates and dependent origination was very helpful in this regard. Liberation Unleashed is a movement of gateless guides who are dedicated to helping you end the spiritual search. Share your thoughts with other customers.
