Dominic rated it it was amazing Mar 02, I tried for quite a while, but wasn’t able to make it click.
Therefore, I will keep on looking. In reference to the sensed, only the sensed. From my understanding, most meditation masters will admit to something like this, if prodded not that I am anywhere near a meditation master!!

Fred Wahlstrom rated it really liked it Dec 18, But, at the end of the viewing, you too are allowed free roam, to explore, you move about the Holodeck, waving your hands through the lifelike images.
This process usually takes patience, persistence, and a sincere desire for the truth, so it can be taxing and frustrating. But I still don’t find that to be evidence of NO self at all anywhere ever.
Gatless is a collection of parts that have causes and conditions. For me, this has manifested in a marked increase in mental and emotional stability. Gatecrashees request a guide, visit the forum. No such resource for spiritual seekers has ever been published, nor such a large collection of awakening accounts ever been assembled.
In this way they can have one foot in each world, telling themselves they are following Gautama but in areas they don’t want to, still not following him.

I seem to be taking the gradual, wait-for-it-to-soak-in approach. 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 Gatecrasbers cling to it and hopes you will come to cling to it too?

thoughts about the book *Gateless Gatecrashers*? : Buddhism
A casual sharing, nothing authoritative. So too, iswhatI think, we label as ggatecrashers Self. I find that a lot easier tatecrashers do than to cling to an idea which I see no evidence for. Promoting a personal blog or website? I think even noticing the sensation on a fingertip, and how it does not have to have a self involved, even just that can bring an instant knowing, when realized for what is actually occuring, on its own, impersonally, irregardless of whether a self wants the sensation to occuror not.
These are the target of vipassana noting. But, also, the trap is to think there is an gatelesss Self inside the body running the show, there is not, there is No Self. But after reading what you’ve posted, it really seems I’ve misunderstood him somehow. The enthusiasm and commitment of Ilona and Elena is also very nice, and they come across as nice people. The insights that arise from these experiences are very illuminating as they contradict so much our gatecrxshers understanding of what awareness is.
