What the Heck is Happening To Me?

Per my past posts, for the past year I have been going through some massive changes in my life. To re-cap; A serious illness (OK now, but I have to be careful about what I eat, stress, etc.. or the symptoms can come back and I am basically incapacitated), job loss, relationship loss and now major fi...

Re: THE INCESSANT BABBLING EGOIC MIND

Quas, this is a powerful post. I can truly understand your perspective and I can sense your excitement that you found ET's teachings. I get through your post how who you thought you were and all the painful trappings is disintegrating and the discovery of your true self is arising out of it. I read ...

Re: Deep within the well

Dreaming the days, Your daydream is such an incredible, vivid visualization. It is the truth and that was why it was so profound for you! Sounds strange, perhaps, but it moved me to tears. Have you attempted to meditate since that? How have you been engaging in that still place since then? I know ho...

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Garuda, One of the reasons I DO find your posts so helpful, spiritually intelligent, sometimes profound and enlightening is because you do NOT claim to be an awakened person. (No, the moderators do not do this either but I have heard others do this.) I am always extremely skeptical when people SAY/W...

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Opening the heart may involve: first accepting everything as it is; then totally forgiving all those who harmed or insulted you; then potentially the hard one – forgive yourself completely for all your perceived errors and unwholesome actions from the past; then practice unconditional, undifferenti...

Re: Stuck in outbox

Yes, I know. But One of them has been in there for weeks and it is for a moderator and the other has been in for days.

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Garuda, One more thing: Obviously, I'm light-heartedly exaggerating my role at helping you on your journey. You are the one doing all the work; I merely sit back and and occasionally throw you a bone and offer reminders. All of us here merely try our best to second-guess what you need to hear, and o...

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Garuda, Even when we sometimes offer some seemingly harsh comments designed hopefully to wake you up enough the notice the possibilities that MAY apply to you in helping you deal best with your situation – hopefully we never intend to discount or minimize your pain, feeling of devastation, or concer...

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Forgot, You are right. I think it a time for both of us to heal. You from a heartbreak, job loss and change in living circumstances and me job loss, relationship ending, prior illness and financial issues. What keeps coming up for me is that maybe I am supposed to be unemployed right now so I can de...

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Garuda,

Thank you for your most excellent reply and once again (and I do enjoy doing this!), I will print it out, read it several times and respond back.

Re: Profound Loneliness

Dan, Thanks for your thoughts on my post regarding your experience. What follows is a bit personal but I guess what everybody writes on here is personal, including the stuff I already have on here. Then again, I guess it really isn't personal as everyone has the same experiences, more or less. :) I ...

Re: Profound Loneliness

Forgotaboutbre, I think that once we actually love someone as you have talked about after not having it and not even knowing it was missing (!) then it is gone again, we can feel that profound loneliness. Byron Katie also talks about the fact that there are no new feelings; meaning, we all have expe...

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Garuda, This is in response to your 8/29/10 post: Try to understand that maybe the universe was trying to alert you to the fact that your job and/or your intimate relationship [and maybe even your mental delusion (ego) prior to all that] was causing a problem in your consciousness which eventually e...

Re: Profound Loneliness

Garuda, Also part of the loneliness I feel (although it is less and less acute as time passes with regard to missing the boyfriend) is how much I enjoyed GIVING affection and love to him maybe even more than getting it. That incredible physical /emotional/spiritual attraction which encompasses so ma...
