Re: Society's Addiction To Dopamine & The Cause Of Our Behav

There are quite a bit of methods I agree. Just as you have said I can try to tackle it intellectually, spiritually, action wise and many more. I wouldn't be surprised if the problems aren't coming from my thoughts. Even when I talk myself out of it and try to reaffirm to myself that I have no reason...

Society's Addiction To Dopamine & The Cause Of Our Behavior

Hello everyone! It's Danny back here with another question. This time I have two that I'd like to bring up. The first question is actually more of a personal discovery that I've made. It's regarding the neurochemical in the brain known as dopamine. For those of you who don't know what dopamine is it...

Re: Living Your Life On A Schedule

I feel that plans can be dangerous if you force yourself to follow a routine that sacrifices the present moment for the future. You misunderstand the meaning of the present moment, and more importantly, presence. You are in the present moment now. Every moment of your life is now. Any activity that...

Re: Living Your Life On A Schedule

What kind of work do you do? Hello again Jack. I'm 17 so I still don't have a career. I'm in high school at the moment. As far as what kind of work I do I suppose you can call me a musician. I've studied it since I was 12 and I'm currently learning music production and audio engineering. I also hav...

Re: Living Your Life On A Schedule

Hey Danny :) Great question! For me it's about balance. I don't see that there is anything inherently 'wrong' with thinking and using it as a tool to organise your life so that you can fulfil your desires. The problems come in when you identify with the thoughts and they own you, rather than you kn...

Living Your Life On A Schedule

Hey everyone! I'm back again and it's nice to be here again. Today I want to ask you guys a question regarding a daily schedule. It seems that a big part of "success" with anything usually involves setting some type of goal. Not only does it involve setting a goal but it involves making a plan in or...

Re: Is Time Management Conflictive With The Now?

Hello everyone. It's been awhile since I've been on these boards. What I'm wondering right now is whether managing time is conflictive with being present in the now. The same goes for setting goals. If goals are something that can only be reached in the future then doesn't striving to achieve them ...

Re: Anxiety while writing/producing songs

Thank you everyone for the amazing, long responses. You are all kind and wonderful :D I especially like your post danny. The idea of the mind slowing down the process, and just "knowing" if it sounds good or not. But what if you need to write a really intricate part? Like a Beach-Boys-esque vocal h...

Re: Anxiety while writing/producing songs

I get pretty bad anxiety when I write and record songs. If something my mind labels as "bad" comes out, my mind tends to go, "you've lost it! you'll never write another good song again!" This gets tied up too with a concussion I got, so my mind will tell me that ever since my concussion, everything...

Re: Someone help me please...

Danny, I'm reading this thread a few weeks after the last post. It would be wonderful to hear an update from you. The quotes below are from your post on April 18. I made it my goal to become one of the greatest players in the world. ...I would play for 8 hours on school days and 10 hours on week da...
