Re: Neuroscience, the mind, different selves...

That was good, thanks for sharing 'Trails.

The thing about the three steps of meditating - I'd fall over asleep :wink: but I do do the mini
focus breaths.

Re: Employment

aahh societal realities ;) what a pain they are. Is this change driven by my ego to be a part of something "cool" Should I stay with my current job, which will allow me to have a life outside of work, I could learn how to play guitar, join a choir, etc. In other words, should i let go of an identity...

Re: Last night

Welcome Sal,

Sometimes I find some things speak to the core of us, like a best friend we've long forgotten how okay we were able to be real and authentic with.

That can feel exhilarating and make us a little breathless.

Breathe... breathe and be. :)

Re: Should i accept someone i love, wants to surrender life

Hi gosp. You are obviously a very empathetic person, and that needs careful attention - what is yours, what is not, where are the boundaries? I'm glad to hear you are reading more and opening up to your own learning experiences. My question would be, I feel I have a positive effect on her, I mean ou...

Re: Maybe it's not ego and just a misdiagnosis

It's a bit tricky when we don't have examples (for me) but I'll scattergun thoughts and see if anything is relevant. When one is creating unnecessary suffering for self and others, cause and effect are entangled. If ego is the cause the effect spirals at that level of awareness, making as ET says en...

Re: What about rocks and trees?

Thanks for sharing that video I will finish watching it later. At the very beginning of it, the tiny percentage of our universe that is matter that is somewhat known to us, (4%), compared to and along with, the higher percent and growing dark matter and dark energy, is core in understanding how prec...

Re: Maybe it's not ego and just a misdiagnosis

I know the ego comes into play in order to control, but could this be purely based on hormones/neurotransmitters/nutrients (I’ll call these body chemicals for short)? I understand that both could occur in conjunction, however, is it possible for ego to not be present under the control of body chemi...

Re: What is personality if you aren't based in ego?

Great questions, great response Webby :) WW said: The word appreciate itself means to grow in value. But in more practical terms it is the closest thing I have found to the expression of unconditional love - which is the heart of Source Being. Not that it's possible to stay in appreciation at all ti...

Re: Should i accept someone i love, wants to surrender life

Hi gosp, I'm confused - how can you be 100% with someone who - "I don't know her exact place and name"? All you can do is be aware of how you are, and what you are triggering and experiencing fear about, and there are many examples in your post. Who will you be if she takes her own life? - you will ...
