Re: Work-related anxiety and presence at work

sitting at work maintaining presence and surrendering to the fact that I'm not motivated? You are paid for some deliverable by your employer. Find out whether you have the capacity and motivation to deliver what you are expected to. If you don't have the capacity or motivation, find yourself a diff...

Thanks.

Being at work, doing something else than what Iam paid for is what happening. That is the base for nervous moments, when asked about work status :)

Re: I feel like a nobody, so why do I still have an ego?

Acceptance is wonderful, but in a lot of cases it is secondary.... the primary thing is to check what it is telling you and take the necessary action. you merely need to accept this moment, not your life situation as you perceive it. Absolutely fantastic. I always felt, as I keep reading in this fo...

Even today the same thing happened, except she was left in school itself. I knew she will cope up as time goes & she will not atleast break up as she did for the first two days Seems you're desperate for a reply, so I'll throw in my 2 cents. You are right :) I wanted to take this as an opportunity t...

Re: Me-Kid-school

Iam bumping in....I expect someone to throw me light on this. To add an additional point to my previous post, I did went through similar painful experience as a child, where I still remember, that I was bundled & thrown into the school by my dad. Even today, I try to avoid getting into places, where...

Me-Kid-school

One of the spiritual lessons, is to be more of a kid as we grow. Have read somewhere, the kids laugh around 300 times a day, whereas an adult does it for 15 times a day. When I spend time with my kid, I observe their joy with every moment....they laugh for no reason. My kid has health problems, sinc...

Small lies to protect - Keep away from it

I have recently started to observe the contents of others while they speak, irrespective of whether its a direct communication to me or its to a group of people. This way one could realize the abuses/complaints/identification with their life situations/sticking to their ideas and opinions as they ta...

Re: How Do You Decide On What To Act?

....... best way I could answer that question was to speak from my life experience in an attempt to explain that following your bliss and trusting your gut (intuition) is the way to go for me in this manifested world. :D Thanks for the reply. It all starts there & sometimes before I realize I miss ...

Re: How Do You Decide On What To Act?

As far as deciding when & what to act...what I'm learning from taoism is to take the trying out of it all. The less we try, the more the source is able to flow through us. Or as ET puts it, the more still we are the more consciousness will put us into action. <Do not try to solve a problem, but rat...

Re: Not noticing improvements

If an emotion is already present then what is there to do? You can't "toss it out" because you don't like it. All one can do is accept the fact of its presence, and then watch it. There is no need to indulge in the story behind it or get down on yourself for a perceived weakness; in fact, that will...

Re: Is this an ego?

From my own personal experience when circumstances appear to be difficult, in the end they are never as bad as we tend to worry they might get, and even if really bad things happen, they are rarely as difficult to bear as we imagine they might be. What is unbearable, is when you worry about somethi...
