Re: meds or no meds

Wow... I still have some mild depression or anxiety, but since I started posting on this forum I realized many things and I have hope that I'll be "cured" maybe even soon! :) But my "dark times" lasted for a long long time and I felt like the prospect of "cure" was just a distant dream, now those da...

Re: Brotherhood

Let me give you an example: I cook my own lunch, and you wash your own dishes. So at the end I am fed and you have your clean dishes. But if I wash dishes for you, and you cook me lunch, then I'm fed, you have clean dishes, and we also have the spirit of brotherhood between us :D So it seems that li...

Re: complications in relationships- how to address w partner

Hi again, I just read what you wrote about needing the attention etc to be happy. I agree. I was perfectly happy and un-needy being single (after having found inner peace) for the two years before I met my current partner.Even before that, I never had a relationship like this one. So on the one han...

Re: On validation and more

forgotaboutbre,

I dig your post! :D
Very nice, it has this passion of expression, I read it in "one breath" so to speak :)
If you added a rhyme or two, maybe it could even be rapped! :mrgreen:

Re: Ego / Mental

Let's first try to see what is not "mental", but "real you". In my opinion, "real you" is that awareness which experiences all outer and inner (thoughts, emotions) events. But I think that's just one aspect of "real you". The other aspect is the ability to make free choices, regardless of the outer ...

Re: Emotions: good & bad

DavidB, this is an excellent example on how to handle thoughts and emotions! I noticed you started posting just recently and all your posts have been very insightful.
(But don't let your ego start "feeling good" about it! :D :wink: )

Re: complications in relationships- how to address w partner

My partner invited me to a series of exciting events, and then later said he could only take me to one because his son was still uncomfortable with his and my relationship, and his son would be at the other events. The first thought I had after reading this, is that he was being quite reasonable, f...

Re: Seeing the face of God

Yesterday, while at my job in a retail store, I had an interaction with an older guy. As I "do" with most I meet, I kept my attention in the awareness and noticed any emotions or thoughts that might come up and serve as a distraction to the interaction, as well as being the space for that person. R...

Re: Ego replaying movies, music, conversations...

For the moment, my discernment is that the thoughts that are carrying you, the ones you are replaying where examples have been used above are all love /expansion energies, not an ego or obstacle or enemy in sight in the 'content' of them. For me this shows that in emptying your brain of egoic fearf...

Re: Limitations of the Present Moment

Well I feel really relaxed reading your description, it is very lovely. You do? That's really nice, thanks! :) What I learned in the past weeks on this forum, is that many of the opinions our minds have on how we should see things or behave, are heavy, burdening, unsettling... And we should pay muc...

Re: Limitations of the Present Moment

Wait a sec... The way I see it, attaining "enlightenment" or "spiritual realization" are just fancy words. What I think they mean, is simply becoming more and more normal, natural, more yourself. Maybe it's easier to see it that way if you can see that practically everyone you know, is actually livi...

Re: Parenting and role playing

I was in a visit to friends who have small children a few days ago. Previously, I would feel like not knowing what to do around kids, maybe even a bit embarassed, frozen, I mean it was just silly! But this time it was such a nice experience. I was just there, smiling at them, not thinking what to do...

Re: In need of a little help right now...

what .. you scared now someone will think you've lost your mind? :lol: Welcome to my world, after a while you'll learn to just let that 'be' too. What others think of you is really none of your business. What you did golf, and how you did it is 'perfect'. Emotions are not our enemy, if we can reall...

Re: Well does it really matters?

Many times i don't feel like saying hi or thank you to other people but then if i don't say my mind directly comments "wasn't that just rude, you are a meditator and you should be nice to people" so i change myself to nicely but then again when i say thank you or welcome even though i don't feel to...

Re: when ego is more power full then awareness

I seem to be having a similar "problem". Perhaps there are some unpleasant emotions underneath and the ego is creating noise to try and cover up the pain. When you think so much, try to see if you can focus your attention deeper inside onto your emotions themselves. That may be something I need to d...
