You are hereScott Kiloby
Have you realized that “better,” “happier,” and “more spiritual” are only presently arising ideas? They have no objective reality, except within your own mind-made, time-based dream of self.
Scott Kiloby, Wholeness Beyond any Limits
This is the conversation that comes to me to say my loudest. Our society is so rife with separateness that even those cloaked in the trappings of oneness are from their very foundations presented as a separate and exclusive club. Actually un involvement does not exist. Your disengagement is you involvement, and very very unconscious.
Scott and Sundance Burke, These Amazing Times
I just want to let you know what is happening with Living Realization. Lots of people are showing interest in this very simple, straight-forward message about the possibility of freedom right in the midst of whatever is happening in your life.
The Living Realization text has been revised. It hasn't lost its simplicity and clarity. But we've added some really powerful inquiries that cut through the sense of separation like a knife.
The new website is www.livingrealization.org.
Meetings will be starting soon, with a new technology that allows us to see each other, no matter where we are.
Dialogues with Scott Kiloby
For me this might be a first, just looking at what works.
To talk about the teaching with a critical eye. Wherein lies the clarity, where is built-in confusion?
I guess I believe in an importance of what was said?
Let's hear your comments on how this strikes you. Where are you "stuck"?
Scott Kiloby's clarity on "Non-Separation"
Seeing through thoughts, emotions and sensations is possible
Almost like B.S. and A.S. that leaves life different?
"Before Scott" and "After Scott". I can no longer be miss-interpreting thoughts, emotions, sensations, experiences or states as reality.
Experiences, "states" and the core story, seem so believable
A breakthrough weekend for myself and many
Scott has a willingness to make the alternatives clear. Recognize freedom or see what level of concepts have you settled upon?
If nothing exists as an independent thing, how can we talk about anything? I seem to enjoy being in the world, apparently doing things, and enjoying life. Is this recognition you speak of, the end of my life as I knew it?
When you say "how can we talk about anything," take a closer look. What you are calling "things" are really thoughts. Is there any way to know of a thing outside of the thought that arises to describe it?
I understand that awareness is prior to thought, and as it is what we are, cannot be affected by thought. Thought cannot understand awareness, because it's an appearance of awareness, easy enough. Here's what boggles my mind:
Prior to recognizing awareness, we lived our lives through the simulated self. The knowledge of that self was all that we knew was needed. So then, what is it that leads the simulated self on the spiritual search, if that spiritual search is going to make the simulated self fall away (lose control, die)? Is it just inevitable? Is it what the simulated self is always headed towards? Or does the simulated self not know what is in store for it through the recognition of awareness?
There is a new chapter in the book, if you want to download again, the link is on the first post. The reason we want to focus the questions on the book is that Scott is actually adding material, and some might be based on your questions. In January Scott answered many questions that ranged far and wide. Let's focus for him this month.
Thanks for your participation.
