Re: I am a robot

Okay Jen, thanks for the story, but no thank you for this: I could be more direct and say get your head out of your a*&^ and you might notice the sun shining instead of only noticing and being surrounded by your own shit I didn't ask to be judged, I didn't ask to be ridiculed, and I didn't even ask ...

Re: I am a robot

I guess its because I feel that I can't offer any useful advice. That or the thread is just too damn long and I refuse to sit and read through all of it. I read a passage that was similar to your quote in one of my religious classes today. They talked about in the Vedic texts (which are the earliest...

I am a robot

These past few days I feel like I have been an emotionless, stone cold robot who shares absolutely no compassion and warmth towards other people. I don't know if there is something wrong with me or something wrong with them, but judging by the facial expressions of a vast amount of people that I hav...

Re: Anger and a "quality no"

Thank you Jen, that was really a cool audio clip. She has an interesting voice! :D I'll probably listen to the rest of the audio clips during the weekend. I've been using "no-thank-you" energy quite a bit at my new job actually, and I notice the lack of need to right them or to change them. It is ve...

Re: Anger and a "quality no"

And I just want to mention that I didn't start this thread to just vilify my father. We have times where we enjoy each other's presence as well, like when we talk about the Lakers and cars and stuff like that. I'm sure you have some good memories with your father too, rontant

Re: Anger and a "quality no"

Thank you for all of the replies and perspectives! So what are you suggesting babadropping? To just drop out of society because you don't want to play by the rules any more? I'm not saying I disagree with you, I'm just asking what is to gain from what you say, and what separates spiritual from every...

Re: Anger and a "quality no"

By a "quality no" I meant opening up to the possibility of getting angry, with love. For some reason I've felt the spiritual community and I guess everyday secular life has made the two mutually exclusive. Lately I've realized that I've had porous boundaries and I feel I have let other people, inclu...

Re: Anger and a "quality no"

Thanks Snowheight, I think you understand where I'm coming from. It's not about right or wrong - it's about respect. In order to receive respect you need to give it - create the atmosphere for it to grow. And in order to cultivate and emanate respect onto others, you must first engender a sense of s...

Re: Anger and a "quality no"

Thank you all for the replies! Your right Snowheight, I do have to maintain a clear head and lashing out in anger can result in me getting hit, pushed, or at worst kicked out of the house. But that's the very issue I'm having, I want to maintain a clear head without being overcome by anger. I want t...

Re: Anger and a "quality no"

I did take the 5 seconds to throw it away... I'm not some spoiled little brat bitching about how my dad makes me do chores around the house. I'm perfectly okay with taking out the trash, cleaning the bathroom, and doing chores around the house considering I don't do much to contribute financially (e...

Anger and a "quality no"

So I've been on spring break this last week from college, and I've been unemployed for a little while now. I guess this all gets under my dad's skin and he has now resorted to all types of personal attacks over issues that really aren't a big deal. For example, just the other day I left an empty con...

Re: ''voice-voices in our heads''.....???

Midnight, in all of your threads it looks like you've been forced fed the same message repeatedly telling you that your not "doing it properly" and "to just keep at it", but its like, at what cost? My dad used to have eggs fed to him everyday, and he never liked them. His step-father would just repe...

Re: My Mom's Driving me Nuts

I wasn't discounting what you were saying as valid, to a certain extent. But I didn't feel that it was applicable or helpful to his certain situation. You're right, I don't know how his mother would react, or if she would walk all over him, but in my personal experience, and from what I've seen all ...

Re: My Mom's Driving me Nuts

@Webwanderer. I think having appreciation for his mother is great and all. But what happens when she starts really over-stepping Learner's boundaries? Can't this create a dangerous situation where he lets his mother get away with what ever she wants, while making him feel as if he's not "grateful" e...
