Re: Einstein

Unless... :shock: So we need a big scientific discovery. Something that rocks the world.

Re: Spiritual Teacher & Journalling

Hi zenofsong Thanks for the encouragement Try writing three pages without stopping every morning and don't read them again for thirty days. Btw, don't worry about reinforcing a sense of self. Then you'll just reinforce a sense of self that worries about reinforcing a sense of self. Sounds like good ...

Re: Psychedelics

So..would you smoke dmt? Yeah why not would you take psychedelics? Probably, I've eaten mushrooms, both the laugh-yourself-silly kind and the "this is what madness must feel like" kind. The latter made me want to change career why Why not? The worst that happens* is you have a horrible trip which i...

Re: 2012 - End of psychological time?

http://www.eckharttolletv.com Checked the link, there's a brief clip about self-esteem which is an excerpt from September 2010 issue of Eckhart Tolle TV which is entitled "2012 & The End of the World" But there's no actual talk of 2012, I guess you need a subscription to watch it If I've understood...

Re: Awakening to NOW...and I'm so sleepy!

Try this http://aromeditation.org/ Anyone else have this experience? In stopping to be Present to the Moment (notice my breath, notice my body, see what is here in this very moment) I am more tired. I feel a real resistance to this exercise, and the result is fatigue. My mind gets very busy judging ...

Re: music and the present moment

There's no need to stop it, just stop judging it as being "bad" somehow The music playing in my head tends to reflect my internal state Yesterday I woke up and "I want to break free" by Queen or Freddie Mercury was playing in my head (am anxious to leave my current job) When I'm on a downer lately I...

Re: my story. from sydney australia

I left that course feeling ontop of the world and in control of my life. That's all these courses do really, give you a temporary "high" feeling like you can accomplish anything, but that wears off after a while. Many others have said the same thing I also watched ,read and listened to the secret. ...

Re: Help with Horrible Job

Thank you Spike. This brought tears to my eyes and compassion for myself on a deep level as I read this. This is the truth.
Good to know, I'm always iffy about these kinds of posts; never can tell if I've interpreted the meaning correctly until it's blurted out

Re: Help with Horrible Job

Hello Rachel I understand now *hug* There's no sense in blaming yourself for what happened, I did some reading on clinical depression, it's described as the kind of illness that affects a person's behaviour and decision making ability You've previously said that you feel responsible for the decision...

Re: Help with Horrible Job

Thank you for sharing that inspiring story Dan There is another component here—because I developed a very serious illness this past year that I have to diligently take care of myself physically now, part of the fear was being around sick people and getting sick again. I think this is something that ...

Re: Help with Horrible Job

Dissatisfaction with oneself is endemic in Western society because of the emphasis on the individual, free-will, and sin . Western culture promotes regret, guilt, and self-condemnation and calls it "taking responsibility". It gives rise to the feverish need to achieve, as well as to perfectionism, ...
