Terrifying panick attack/meditative experience

Hi I've not been around a lot lately, think it's because I've been kinda depressed and withdrawn for the past couple of years Anyway recently I had an intense experience that forced me back towards waking the hell up so thought it was worth sharing. It's a bit long and rambling because it was writte...

Re: A few things that Tolle misses...

Psychodynamics explains it all, and it's absolutely a wonderful addendum to complement Tolle's material that everyone should take a glance at :) (really!). Your whole post was fascinating, any recommendations for someone who wants to read more about psychodynamics (preferably online or in an ebook) ?

That was such a beautiful reply. I never realized saving the world was my "trip". Does that mean I'm enlightened? lol
I think you already know the answer to that :)

Peace

They don't become more loving, caring, compassionate?

Re: Indulging in self destructive habits

Thanks, that made a lot of sense

I think I've been in this job too long (more than 2 years now, which is a personal record), it feels like it's time to move on

Indulging in self destructive habits

We come home, it's been long day, I'm wound up and in pain It provides relief not only from the physical pain, but also the tension accumulated over the day from not living up to expectations Tasks that were set during the day and should have been easy but turned out to be rather difficult for unexp...

Hi there Root

I've been there too, and found this video by Adyashanti explains wanting better and in more depth than I ever could:

Re: The Paradox of Optimal Performance

This was actually a lot of help. Thanks for sharing. Glad it helped Based on what you said in your above post, it doesn't sound like it's just you that's unhappy at your current workplace You mentioned that all the other service advisers are stressed, unhappy, upset and that your boss occasionally ...

Re: Eckhart on Loneliness?

Thanks for the helpful reply spikyface (I can't help picturing you with a spiky face!) Taking practical steps to find a partner does feel like something I want to do, so your comments helped. Yet at the same time, I question my motivations. I recently ended a 2-year relationship that wasn't the rig...

Re: Eckhart on Loneliness?

There is a feeling inside of loneliness that is real. I think I am just venting more than anything at this stage, but hopefully this either helps someone, or someone can help me! If you were hungry you would find something to eat right? So logically since you're lonely why not try to take some prac...

Re: Reviews, please - Butterflies Are Free To Fly

You only need this moment to see your true nature at centre... It's so so simple people overlook it. Firstly, the only people I've met who suggest that have typically spent years reading dozens of texts and have already internalised the concepts Then when the "a-ha!" moment happens they ascribe all...
