Re: Help with sometimes getting stuck in ocd-like thought loops

Thanks WW that was very helpful. It just so happens that I just watched a short video saying exactly what you just said before I read this. :) https://youtu.be/-M1-TxRY-Ec It's the fear of it not leaving that keeps it there just like with any other thought form or physical sensation.

Help with sometimes getting stuck in ocd-like thought loops

Hey everyone. I must say that this forum is a goldmine. I'll probably end up reading every past thread on here. So many of you guys explain things with such clarity that I'm often left in awe. :) I suffer with Pure O which is a form of ocd where one has constant obsessive thoughts rather than compul...
