Re: How do I not care about what others think?

But then certain events happened where I didnt listen to myself and instead I listened to my mother and made choices that brought me alot of misery, this was my own doing. I have been studying En...

Re: What's taking you so long?

Jugu, Until you stop speaking from ego, I will take your posts seriously. When you realize the truth of life, and practice and live in it everyday, all you have is a compassion and empathy for all as you know and feel that we are all one. When you question others on this forum, you are questioning y...

Re: Outer Life Purpose

Observeing, accepting and facing our emotions head on and taking action and not reacting to these emotions, is living life to the fullest, as each emotion we experience it to its deepest level, to me that is living life. What if I told you that my life is completely devoid of all emotions, be it gu...

Re: Outer Life Purpose

Jugu, I have read your comments to others on this forum, and I have empathy for you. You must learn that in living in truth, you begin to understand that reacting to our emotions and sensations continues the suffering wheel of life, and that of Karma. Instead of reacting you take positive action in ...
