Re: The Ego, acceptance and an existential crisis

Hi pyaan 112 thank you for sharing your vulnerability so beautifully - it was a gift of such unconditional love for all who read it, heart-touching, connective, beautiful. Suddenly I saw for the first time in my life what family stands for. Unconditional mutual love for each other. Father to daughte...

Re: Being with sorrow, the precious jewel

For one not interested in discussing people you seem to be doing a pretty good job of it. The invitation stands, with no conditions.

Re: Being with sorrow, the precious jewel

Like one has said, one does not use words like gratitude and generosity as cliche's, nor does one subscribe to the definitions of others who have demonstrated a lack of both an understanding as well as a translation of that word into their conduct. One is absolutely free to choose whatever one does...

Re: Our uniqueness

Now, as an exercise of fun, go tightly into any minutely identifiable parts of that image and try to hold onto it, make a story out of it, heck ;) even try to make it the 'bedrock of mankind's existence' really defend that position as the totality of life, or even an experience or relationship or in...

Re: Being with sorrow, the precious jewel

Y having returned to equilibrium after sorrow's visit, heard the distinctive knock of arrogance on their door. Only arrogance knocks with such certainty and belief in itself.

Re: Being with sorrow, the precious jewel

And yet this is not the only experience of sorrow. Sorrow knocked on the door of Y. Y opened the door and recognised sorrow from previous meetings. The greeting was warm and welcoming, even if not entirely enthusiastic. Hello Sorrow come in and share with me what it is you have come to teach. Sorrow...

Thank you guys for the kindness, my ego is driving me mad the last few days I'm really struggling, keeps thinking of the past, the what ifs, guilt etc. Hi Markf, when we are at ease with what is, the brain seeks no reason for it, the experience is one of acceptance + and...
