Re: What are we?

Thank you for that WW. I read it this morning after waking up and it actually helped me get myself out of bed. I feel like I am going through that stage of wanting to sleep constantly. Also, as summer seems to draw to an end, I'm getting a little anxious about winter coming. The dark nights always s...

Re: What are we?

Thanks again for that. It really does help. It's nice to have somewhere to ask questions and get answers in plain English, too. Firstly, I love Forrest Gump. Cry like a baby every single time. I see what you mean about Hanks playing the character. And he retains his sense of being Tom Hanks whilst i...

Re: What are we?

Firstly, thank you for the reply. I honestly really appreciate it, I cannot tell you. That was a great post that really helped. Naturally, I have a few questions. Please bear with me. Could you break down what you mean by Paul is an ego identification, not a separate identity? I know what you mean a...

Re: What are we?

Thank you for that WW. I was actually hoping you'd reply to me. I know, previously, I might have come over argumentative, and I can only apologise for that. However, in a world or word salad, I do find I enjoy your posts and can get my head around them mostly. Yes - it absolutely does conflict with ...

Re: What are we?

I'd really appreciate someone to talk to. I feel like I am going down the slope again. I know I can be irritating, just a bit scared at the moment. I've been posting on the Actualized Forums. Does anyone here post on there? All I get from them is that I don't exist and neither does anyone else. Ever...

What are we?

Hi everyone, Still having trouble with the idea of what we really are. What makes us, 'us'. A few months ago I went through a very dark patch. Life seemed utterly pointless if we don't exist. I was worried that we didn't have free will and how everything is just predetermined by someone or something...

Struggling & Relationships

Firstly, my apologies for creating a new thread. But I feel like I need to draw a line under what I discussed in that one and update where I am at. All my life up until January this year, I really enjoyed being alive. I enjoyed being human. I had everything I could ever really want, apart from a rea...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

My point is, in my opinion, it's clear to see how we are all human. We all have our own experience. And being human is great. The world is a harsh place, but we can make it better. It just seems a shame that we are all going to die and our memories will too. It's raining here in England. I love just...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

I'm suffering because I do love this life and I love my loved ones. And it breaks my heart to think that, as humans, we are going to cease to exist. All our memories and experiences together WILL die. It kills me. We ARE humans. We inhabit a wonderful planet. But it can't go on forever. It makes my ...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

My issue is I love life. So much that I never want it to end. But it will end. I am guaranteed to die, and then there will be nothing. The world will one day end, as will the universe. It is guaranteed to happen, so really, it already has. I've noticed how everything comes and goes, nothing lasts fo...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

WW - Before I even started reading about this, that is sort of how I lived. Who knows how we got here etc, I'm just going to enjoy the ride. But like I said, this thought entered my head yesterday and I can't let it go. I know that a lot of spiritual people don't believe in things such as OCD, but i...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

Thanks for that, Andy. I think I need to stay away from that forum. The aggression and mockery is unreal, for people who are supposed to be pursuing this path. I got the point where I was thinking that everything is just an illusion of my mind. I'm not real. Proper aren't real. I create them. When I...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

I've tried to take some time away but I'm still struggling. Am I an individual on any level? Do I have my own experience, my own personality, my own body? Is there any point in continuing to study? Is there any point in me trying to help others, if they are illusions? These things were the backbone ...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

Why did you shift your existential negative focus to Watts from Tolle? And why listen to / believe someone who says things that are completely contrary to your experience? I was just reading some stuff and he came up a lot. He also says that you shouldn't try and dissolve your ego. I have been on t...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

Watts wrote a number of books, and I'm sure there are conflicting statements in them that could be studied. I think you should trust your own instincts and judgement. Tell Ghandi that making an effort to help people doesn't matter. Your challenge now is to stabilize your daily life, adopting whatev...
