Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

I believe that many of our illnesses are in fact stress or fatigue induced. These decrease the natural ability of our body to keep itself healthy and renew itself normally. Also, very often the deeper intelligence of our body takes control and triggers an illness as a protection or to make you stop...

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Wow! Thank you! This is great.
While kind of a silly title, I bought the book Classical Music 101. It really is good! Very detailed and quite sophisticated and wonderfully interesting. Rachel

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

rachmeil, that is a good question and I think it is important to clarify for myself as it is diffuse when it happens. I am learning to tease it apart, understand it and accept it through using the MC2 Method and Byron Katie. It is extraordinarily helpful. Let me think about it more thoroughly and I ...

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Thanks Mouse, I intuitively know that is correct and thanks for reminding me! In a sense, my question was half joking/half not.

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Seeker, you mentioned classical music which I am just beginning to learn about. Are there ones you could recommend that are peaceful and beautiful?

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Seeker, You are absolutely right and I see you can understand what I am saying. I think, though, that because I had a very serious illness that for the most part was stress-induced, it feels like I do not have the normal coping mechanisms to not let other peoples' negativity not effect me. Before th...

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Thanks Andy. I am not working and have no money for a vacation. I am going to Austin tomorrow for a job interview on Monday and there are some rural places on the way which is good. Are you saying to make a vacation my number one priority? Or moving to a peaceful place a number one priority? I lived...

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Well, I am learning NOT to resist but rather let the feeling come up and watch it and feel it. That is the only way for it to disipate. Resisting, I am learning, makes it stay.

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

rachMeil, Thanks. You did detect despair in my first email. Again, I do go back and forth between being conscious and being despairing. I am aware of both though and to me that is the key. Awareness of both states of being. If I were despairing and unconscious I was despairing, then I would be in tr...

Oh, Mouse, I forgot to ask. Where ARE the conscious, single men? :)

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Thanks Mouse. When I wrote that email I was in the midst of reeling from feelings after leaving my crazy neighbors house. The email does sound desperate and that is the state of mind I get in sometimes lately. I am quite sane, actually. I would be insane if I were NOT effected by the craziness and d...

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Thanks, Matt, but you apparently did not understand my post at all. I never said I was better than anyone - in fact, I made a point of stating the exact opposite.

How Do I Protect Myself?

I am struggling with maintaining my emotional sanity and any semblance of peace in an insane world these days. Not all the time, mind you, but very often. It feels like I do not have any skin on. I can see how crazy people are more and more (because I am beginning to see it in myself) but I do not k...

Re: Ego and jobs

Colonel, Also, what is the stab in the heart, sinking, dull pain coming from? When does it arise? Is it when you think about taking a job that is "below" what you believe to be on the professional level you are accustomed to? Or, is it when you think about being an attorney? W hat is it you love to ...

Re: Ego and jobs

Colonel, I can certainly identify with your post. I am in the process of re-entering a career I was in years ago and in order to move ahead in the direction I want to go, I have to start almost at the beginning. I struggle with the same dialogue of wanting to be in a field I love versus doing what I...
