Re: I can't seem to be without physical pain

As the acceptance of pain is the denial of the self, and the self stands in the way of true happiness, the wholehearted acceptance of pain releases the springs of happiness. I think this is it. I have been in states where I could watch the pain without judgement. And interesting the pain didn't bot...

I can't seem to be without physical pain

Hi everyone: I have had various different kinds of pain going on for many years now. I found that whatever pain is the greatest I focus on and the others seem to go away. I do have a mechanical problem with my lower back that may need surgery, (unless I can heal it without that?) and I have some dam...

Re: Help/thoughts Sought regarding my pain body

But what sometimes seems to make me think I haven't is when I speak to friends my own age, or even younger than me who are talking about their young families. I feel bad because its something I had and lost, and I feel as though it will be a difficult life to contemplate without having this in my l...

Re: Help/thoughts Sought regarding my pain body

Find a thought that feels better than the one that is bringing you pain. If you are depressed, get angry. If you are angry, get frustrated. If you are frustrated, reach for hopeful. If you are hopeful, reach for confidence. If you are confident, reach for appreciation. If you are feeling appreciati...

Re: I fear following ET in case Christianity or Islam are tr

So, Webwandere, the demon 's face that I have seen in my mind is because I hold that belief. Yes, you take the medication and it goes away. And the Gods wrath that I felt was me punishing my self. In the middle of that experience, which is demons tormenting me and feeling God's wrath, I have asked ...

Re: My pain body has taken over a lot and I have gotten very

Thank you both for your responses and your caring and concern. He has not shown any indication of violence. I have spent quite a long time reading that website you put up far_eastofwest about codependency and children of alcoholics and I have found out about meetings in my area and plan to go to one...

My pain body has taken over a lot and I have gotten very

unconscious lately. To start I guess I should admit that I wanted to manifest someone into my life. I started out saying someone that would be "loving and caring" and blah blah and then I started saying that I wanted someone who I could be loving and caring toward. I guess I felt it was more "enligh...

Re: When you decide to accept things in your life does God e

I cannot shake this and I cannot let it go. And why is that? Take a close look because resolving why you 'can't' is the road to freedom in how you can. Is it your money you are concerned about or is it hers? Will life not go on regardless of the outcome? Does your fundamental happiness hinge on wha...

have a sense of humor and throw a bus at you? I know I wrote about this before. My family, (or I should say my mother), lost an apartment building in hurricane Sandy because she had no flood insurance. And now she wants to sell the property for literally 53% of the asking price. I had taken it upon ...

Re: Help me - I need to let go a dear one...!!!

The Course in Miracles says that relationships never end they just change form. The love that stays is real. I agree, hold on to the love but you can spread it on yourself and every person you meet. That way it is true love, not the conditional love that is sometimes brought about in relationships....

Re: I can't determine if there is a Self or not.

One could say we are that unmanifested, void-like potentiality. But the thing which claims to be that is, again, only a thought. Is there a core-Self? A controlling agent, in some format. Something to which life happens to. A center. I don't know if this is ET's beliefs because I can't remember but...

Re: Having a problem that is causing me a lot of pain right

I may have freaked out too soon. When I went with that other person to try and get her cats a home a the no kill shelter she never offered them a donation. I think if I offer them a generous donation, which I'm sure they could use, and give them my cat trees and other things I have maybe they would ...

Having a problem that is causing me a lot of pain right now.

I've talked about my cat here. I may have mentioned that I have two cats. Both came to me, I never went looking for a cat because I know I am allergic to cats. It was OK for a long time because they both spent a lot of their time away from home. Then I was told that the kids from the neighborhood we...

Re: What does Tolle and other enlighten beings say about chi

I don't know if this one has been posted yet. This is an article about a monk who has spent many years meditating on compassion and he is dubbed "The happiest man in the world" because of the things they found in his brain while doing cool new brain scans. There is also a video. http://www.dailymail...
