Re: Mindfulness... looking for a way out

to rideforever: Your last post here is so insightful, very inspirational, thank you.! I was an early poster to this thread, but I backed out after I recognized that I had nothing left to offer the OP. In my own journey, I finally recognized within myself the untruth I was living amongst the bazillio...

Re: I'm new here

Hi Kiki, Isn't it just wonderful how the Spirit shows itself to us in ways we don't even notice---until we DO??? I have learned a lot of things about myself in simply reading my old poetry. I haven't written much in the past few years, don't know why that muse has receded, but it is what it is. Mayb...

Re: I'm new here

Thanks, Kiki, your words are encouraging to me. What is really notable about this poem is that I wrote it years ago, long before I came to any conscious awareness of "mindfulness" or Present Moment Awareness. Even before I was able to meditate or understood at all about my Inner Being. Just goes to ...

Re: I'm new here

Hello, treasure and kiki: Thank you for the welcome, and I could not agree more with your words about writing. I have called myself a writer for many years, having begun a personal journal in 1970 and continue to journal today. I have played with fiction writing, to no great end, and I have written ...

Re: I'm new here

Hi SighClone: Thanks for the links, I'll check them out. And thanks for the welcome ! I'm not sure if I'm here to ask questions or just gather info for myself. Seems like I had a lot of questions when I signed up, but now i'm feeling like I just need to nose around and see what others are saying. It...

Re: Mindfulness... looking for a way out

To Emcconnell: So if we can simplify your troubles to the word "unhappy" for brevity, let me summarize. If you are unhappy, and you try to improve yourself by methods suggested by others, ie. therapy, spiritual pursuit, etc, and none of that has any effect on your problems, except to exacerbate them...

Your words are encouraging to me, and I cannot tell you how much they speak to me. The link you added was very interesting reading, albeit just a little over my head. I will lo...

Re: Mindfulness... looking for a way out

To Emcconnell: In my experience, I understand that the practice and purpose of meditation, of mindfulness, spirituality, etc, is all about reaching the Inner Being, the "soul" experience, that fundamental "person" within that is the essence of who we are, where we came from, and where we are going. ...

Re: Poetry: The language of the Divine

Submitted for your approval : THE WIND SRoemer The poetry of the ages cannot begin to speak the myriad small wonders that make a life complete. The soul of man is centered by the music from within-- spoken in a whisper and borne upon the wind. Given thus unto the world, it cannot be refused-- for lo...

Re: Mindfulness... looking for a way out

Emconnell: I hear your struggle so clearly, I too have been in a place where I saw nothing beyond mind and personality. I could not understand what was meant by "loving the inner being". I knew I loved my children, my family, friends, etc, but I had no love for myself. I had an understanding that th...

I'm new here

Hi everyone, I've done a little looking around, and I'm hoping this will be the forum I've been looking for. I am a 57yo mother of 3, grandmother of 4, divorced, seeking that which will make my life feel "right'. I've been spiritually aware from a young age, although for most of my life, I couldn't ...
