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...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

Right, I will ponder a little more. I'm struggling to get up in a morning, though. I just don't see much point in anything. Which I know is resistance, and we need to just accept what is, but what is wrong with trying to help people and stop suffering? Perhaps to bring a little bit of wisdom to this...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

Does it boil down to this? Suffering is born out of a resistance to life. Is it about acceptance? People are always going to upset you and unfortunate things are always going to happen. It is natural to feel disappointed or sad etc up to a point. It is when these thoughts rule you that it becomes a ...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

I genuinely hope that you have thought I've been arrogant or ignorant towards you, I promise you, hand on heart, that I haven't. You are clearly a very nice person and hugely intelligent. I admire how open you are, too. I know I can come across provocative at times, it was never my intention. I am g...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

Your context is apparently a physical one, as you cite animal evolution as primary to your beliefs and world view. Of course evolution exists when it comes to form, but there is a larger evolution that relates to spirit and consciousness. Animal/human form evolution will pass eventually. It will ru...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

To be honest, I'm not sure I understand some parts of your post WW, I'm sorry. It all seems quite abstract to me. Maybe I am way off, but I've said before, I am of limited intelligence. I'm honestly not that smart, I need things in basic English :lol: You say go and have fun and enjoy the experience...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

I don't know what is real at the moment. Even emotions. Like love, for instance. Isn't that a construct, ultimately? Do I actually love something, or is it my ego? I don't know what is real and what isn't. This girl I thought I liked, I would have jumped in front of a gun for her. I adored her that...
