As most here know, relatively recently, Hale Dwoskin has been frequently applying what he calls the "5th Way" which seems to be a derivation of a technique found in several disciplines (Advaita, Zen, 'Self Inquiry') which involves looking into your present experience to search for the "I".
There is alot of good word of mouth about this technique on this and other release forums that I've visited.
The technique as Hale describes it has never resonated with me and has rarely assisted with the process of releasing in my personal experience. "I" look into my present experience to find the I. There is nothing there and... so what?
I think it would be potentially very helpful if members who have had success with this technique could share their experience with it.
And this helps you release? Or increase acceptance of what is arising in awareness? Unfortunately I can't say that I've had the same benefit. If anything it even seems pointless.
For example (no pun intended with the following), we can visually observe something (the eye sees), but without going into memory or taking on faith what we see in a mirror, we can't observe the eye that is doing the seeing. That doesn't however mean the eye isn't there.
Per, thank you, I definitely will and do apply Hale and Larry's other forms of releasing. Since Hale has shifted focus to his 5th Way, I would like to find that perspective helpful.
Per that is an excellent suggestion! I shall do so. How lucky I am to be part of such an excellent community!
