Hi from the land of jealousy and confusion

Hello, Ive been reading and writing here for a short while now, and I figured I should introduce myself... I honestly didn't think I would continue reading and writing here for as long as I have, so maybe Im learning something, or maybe not... Anyway, I was reading someone else's introduction and tw...

Re: Do you want or need your partner?

I wish I could wrap my mind around what you guys are saying, especially eputkonen .... I just dont get it All my life I have "known" that a person gets into a relationship with another person because they want or need that person... which means we are less of a person if we are alone... also, I WANT...

The work online question

Re: Is fear a present feeling?

It seems like it takes a lot of work to stop resisting something, and to only get a few minutes relief (which is often how it is for me too) I wonder if it is worth it to work so hard to stop resisting... or maybe it just seems like work to me... I feel like if I stop resisting and I get a few momen...

Being present is scary

So, I did my very best all weekend to be present... I wasn't perfect but better than most weekends... well I ended up trying to have an important discussion with my bf and I think I did an ok job of being present, I lost control twice, but both times I physically removed myself from the situation so...

Do you want or need your partner?

If I feel like I "need" my bf, does that make me less of a person? If he feels like he doesn't need me... that he is a complete person without me... does that mean I cant do anything for him cause he has no need for me? If I want my bf, or if he wants me... is that ego? If we should just be happy wi...

Re: Is imagination egoic?

Time for my pessimistic response... what if, even after pretending to be the actress, there is no stage... still just the same old person wishing she was something else?

Re: Is imagination egoic?

I enjoyed being a child until I went to school... thats when I wasnt allowed to be me anymore... I had to be what the teacher wanted me to be... quiet and still and productive... and unfortunatly most of my memories of childhood were from after I started school... I have a pretty bad memory in gener...

Re: I need you to tell me you like me

"Live and learn" comes to mind, but perhaps turning it around would be more clear - "Learn, and continue living". Ok, I understand how you can judge without resentment... I mean Im not there yet... maybe I can to it... but anyway, I just wanna know why you switched those phrases around, its not app...

Re: How do you deal with pent up resentment and negative feeling

More stupid questions from the peanut gallery.... If I recognize the painbody, I am to recognize it as something that isnt me... but Im totally convinced that it is me... that without that loathing resenting thing inside me that I will be nothing... so if I recognize it as not me, then I thin I am f...

Turning theory into practice

So, I've read ANE but not PON, but I think I have the basic idea of this philosophy and I like it... hence my further study and questioning on this board... but what I am having a problem with is turning theory into practice... I understand the theory of being aware and present, and I can even do it...
