Re: Friends who don't understand the now

I think you could accept the friendship as is and speak your truth. Don't worry about coming off as "holier than thou", just speak how you honestly feel. If she has an issue with it, then it will allow you to see what your friendship is truly based upon.

A lot of what I do isn't good enough for me...

I find that I have high standards set for myself, but I don't fulfill them. And then I hold everyone else to the standards that I myself won't even live up to. I play/write music. Very rarely will I write something that I feel is good enough and that I am pleased with. However, the moment someone el...

Peeling off layer after layer of ego/awareness... no end?

I am aware that I am perceiving reality. I am aware that I am aware that I am perceiving reality. I am aware that I am aware that I am aware that I am perceiving reality. ????? I suppose this is all my thinking. I feel that I am blocked from experiencing myself as awareness due to watching my though...

Re: Stopped taking meds!!!!! Ooops!

yeah man, I'm on zoloft, and have been through not taking it for a few days. At first, all is well... there is a sense of empowerment. Then comes the dizzy spells and all that jazz. It's groovy, but I've accepted my situation: my brain doesn't produce and sustain seratonin consistently enough right ...

Past conditioning my present...

As a child and teenager I was praised for my accomplishments and talents, my abilities, my looks. I was also praised for my patience, my creativity, my kindness, etc. I derived my sense of self, my false self, from these achievements, successes, and qualities... I have a feeling that I wasn't always...

Staying present is exhausting to my body! and more

Perhaps it's because I'm tired now, but often times it is easier to simply fuzz my eyes and stare off into an unfocused mess of objects in front of me, listening to the wheels turn in my mind. I find that staying completely present is very very very very difficult... breathing is my key back into th...

Re: New..Please Help.... (anxiety in relationship)

I can completely relate and understand your anxieties, even the worrying about what you said or might have said the previous day. As someone else has already pointed out, reread the section in PON about relationships. I understand your fear of "what if something I do pushes him/her away??"... it can...

Re: Assistance with broken relationship

If I were in your situation (which I have been VERY close to before), the most important thing I could do is reconcile with myself, fully. FULLY. COMPLETELY. 100%. Unconditionally.

What does truth feel like?

What does truth feel like in the body? What do you feel when you stumble upon a truth? Perhaps I am seeking reassurance here, then again I've been dealing with this for a while now... so perhaps I just want to share a story, too. My mind (like most others') is loaded with irrational thoughts, and wh...

Re: Defammatory Front Page Article in Globe Tabloid

Great souls will always meet violent opposition from mediocre minds. MLK jr, Jesus the Christ, etc, etc, etc. It will be for as long as it is.

Re: The "Inner Child"

This is what I hear when I think of Jesus saying "I make all things new..."

each moment, each nowness, is new... as if you are a child. I suppose his life's purpose was to teach awareness.

Re: How to accept what you can't accept?!!!!!

Yeah, basically what he said. Accept that you aren't pleased with it. In order to change something, you must first accept that it is as it is. But why can't you go? What is your inner voice saying? [not your mind voice, but the voice that calls to you] I'm sorry if I'm getting too far into your busi...
