Re: Doing

I believe I understand the lesson in this story, and indeed how it is associated with the previous one, nevertheless, I do not comprehend the value of such a story in terms of the world in which we live. We do not lead lives of isolation and we should not, what of service? I almost feel again as if ...

Re: Doing

In spite of the depth of suffering experienced by these people, reading your post puts a smile on my face, in some way it brings perspective, there are of course many other stories such as this one, where an external agency has intervened in a natural environment, and exposed it to unnatural conditi...

Re: Doing

Unfortunately I seem to have forgot to put the commas in the sentence you quoted ' ,simply,' I am not sure if that will affect your perception of the statement, though I was really trying to communicate my perception by extrapolation of sailing's quote. Nevertheless, I have read over both of your po...

Re: Doing

Dbroadhurst, thank you for your post, it is not a question of what, or a question of semantic description of that which isn't within my grasp, it is only a statement that it isn't. What it is I am missing is irrelevant, as you say the very act of grasping is an inhibitory action, it does not matter ...

Re: Doing

Webwanderer, thank you for your encouragement, as well as the honesty with which you have communicated with me in the past, for which I was then dubiously greatful and now appreciate. BrahmanEternal, the confusion I refer to relates more to my experience of a dead end or dead spot in my explorations...

Doing

I was reading through the topic on awareness, and as I read, excerpts jump out at me shouting truth, but also I am left with an apparent lack of understanding, as if there is some essential level at which I am unable to grasp the truth. It seems the action of grasping must be accompanied by somethin...

Re: End Depression Now

I want to point out that the brain too, is an organ of the body that can be afflicted by disease/illness. Are you saying that brain & mind are entirely separate? Not at all, I try not to advocate any sort separateness, I was talking only in terms of depression as a psychological condition, which fo...

Re: Too much spirituo-babble

It is not the spirituo-babble of others that I have issue with, it is always the babble in my own mind I battle with, the post you quoted is a reminder of some of the thoughts that I entertain on a daily basis. Not it its verbose language but in the content and feeling attached to it, the need to st...

Re: End Depression Now

Suicide as an act is a manifestation of an intense inner conflict. Conflict that in my opinion arises out of the interchange between what we want, what we experience and what we think. We tend to box information to label and to create meaning, as we all know, just what meaning we create is determine...

Re: End Depression Now

I am not sure how to 'end depression' I am only clear on how I understand it as a phenomenon. I would imagine all people experience some degree of depression in their lives, it is those of us who experience many episodes of depression who find this how so elusive. As we experience each episode of de...

Hello again all you people

Been a while since I last visited, and it is again good to look at what is happening here. It is interesting, human motivation, that is, I have now found myself aware of an aspect of life I had not before realised. I do whatever it is I tell myself to do. I tried this recently, I 'told myself', 'i w...

Depression?

I have a little experience in this, you write a little like I can remember feeling. It is called, in psychology, anhedonia, and is similar to apathy. It is a complete lack of enjoyment of anything, particularly what you might have enjoyed in the past, it seems to be a state of dispassion, but in rea...

Brahman Eternal I suppose I have the advantage of having read through the thread in its entirety. I have a sense that your state of mind has changed over its course, it seems you are finding difficulty with what I can only describe as a discrepancy between the mind and your emotional state. When you...

Seeking almost always refers to self seeking, or some sort of personal growth based seeking, seeking implies want, desire and a focus on the future. Seeking is a natural human behavior or a function of desire? If we don't do, we seek? IMO if you want to seek seek, but it is not necessary. Neverthele...
