As I progress, I find myself desiring to become closer to others through sharing moments, experiences, silences, rather than through blabbing about our respective dramas. I used to (and still do on occasion) moan, "...but if not for the drama, what is there to talk about?..." Everything, and nothing...

I wonder what drugs they were taking when they wrote those lyrics... hee hee... knowing the history of the Beatles... they must've had some "help"...

Has anyone ever read "The Doors of Perception" by Aldous Huxley (Not that I advocate taking LSD or anything...)

Marmarlade

Hi, I'm new...

I'm a young woman from Mtl, Canada.

I feel like I'm waking up, slowly, but surely, discovering layer after layer.
Like an onion. A really big, confusing, smelly onion.

It's late. Enough wine already...
I'm grateful for the existence of this forum...

Vanilla Sky... I watched it two summers ago... and I remember, at the end, I started to cry and cry and cry. Felt like something buted inside of me. I was at my best friend's house, so I felt safe. It wasn't a sad feeling, though. More like "where have I been all these years?"... nostalgic, sad, yet...

This particular excercise consists of, first, breathing deeply to cal, center myself, then focusing on the soles of my feet untill I feel a tingling sensation.

Thank you all for your responses. You're all really kind. I know that I'm not alone. I have a few friends my age who have been through/are going through their own awakenings... and I am also fortunate to have met a great teacher who really helped me a lot, too. But like I said, none of these people ...

When you are in hell...

I feel like I'm in the depths of hell today. I feel like there's no way out. The anxiety and the emptiness are so intense, but the most difficult feeling is the feeling of "what's the point of anything?". Dark days. I feel like killing myself, but something stops me. Somewhere in me, is that spark o...
