Re: Frustrated with people on other spiritual forums

Since you responded, you've not been blocked. Just to be clear, I've not talked to WW, so my post was speculation, but I did read the other thread and my conclusion, was just my opinion. Anyways, maybe take a day or two to think about if you want to continue posting here or not. Another words, this...

Wrong ... just ... wrong.

"I almost got hit by a VW van"

Was the author asking for help in that thread ?

Re: Frustrated with people on other spiritual forums

People don't know what to do with that? Ya know? ...and I think that's were WW was coming from. If frustration with me is the issue, let it be called that. The right thing to say, then, is, "I am frustrated with you, painBody." The wrong thing to say is, "This is irrelevant to this forum." Do you s...

Re: Frustrated with people on other spiritual forums

However, many times, at least from what I have witnessed and experienced firsthand myself, peoples egos are the biggest and strongest on spiritual forums. And sometimes, these forums attracts those who might even be termed "evil" or "cruel" getting pleasure in manipulation and hurting people. I hav...

Re: Request to y'all

As moderator, I don't see this forum as a place for people to come and just vent their frustrations about the world and their perception of their life. This forum was born out of an interest in the growth of consciousness based on the Tolle teachings and other useful avenues of growth. I would requ...

Re: Request to y'all

Where is the devil's advocate in my comments? You have to know that being so general is simply a way to avoid the core issues. And my goal is not to debunk anything. I'm just a guy in the coffee shop asking questions to understand the real concerns. You have yet to state what is really bothering yo...

Re: Request to y'all

...This has reminded me of something that happened to me last year. I went to a diner alone for lunch and while I waited for my food a much older man stopped at my table while I was reading something on my phone. He said, you're just like the rest of them...what a shame. I said, excuse me? He said,...

Re: Request to y'all

It seems you are avoiding the question. I asked what makes you unhappy and you give me you "don't believe in getting by". What has that to do with unhappyness? What are you really unhappy about? More coffee? WW LOL, ok, fair enough. The world has just become... ...so inhuman. Everyone's plugged in....

Re: Movies with a spiritual message ?

Ok, got it. Well, maybe I haven't understood this issue because I don't think I'm "lost" in this modern day technology. I use it, but not to an extreme. I got my first computer when I was 31 and had no cell phone either at the time. I held out as long as I could. Yes, your age might be your savior....

Re: Request to y'all

Why is wallowing a bad thing ? / Can you learn from your pain and still wallow in it at the same time ? For me, wallowing in suffering is an escape from what's really going on, a refusal to see and deal with the big picture. Surrendering to pain is, for me, very different than wallowing in it. How ...

Re: Request to y'all

That I am forced to be here against my will, like I'm in prison. If a person wants out, he/she should be given it, no questions asked .. at least for a lump sum. Even if that were true, what about that makes you unhappy? There are lots of people that are here like you, and for that matter even in a...

So, help me understand...I'll use her language. She's so lonely. Why? Because, she craves people not engaged with modern society? What's the disconnect..exactly? She craves genuine human interaction, not the pseudo-communication that people mistake for real interaction and are so lost in (Farcebook...
