Re: Someone help me please...

Yum yum yum!! wowzer danny, I'm with the others who say 16 :D Danny said: That is what I am trying to aim for. I want to be able to enjoy the activities for the sake of themselves.

Re: Someone help me please...

You really are wise beyond your years! Perhaps I can point you to some things that have helped me. I think it's helpful to try and understand that true happiness is not really a state of mind. There's an old saying which goes along the lines of 'happiness is the absence of striving for happiness'. ...

Re: Someone help me please...

Try asking yourself: is there anything stopping me feel joy other than the belief in the thought 'I cannot feel joy'? Without wanting to sound patronising you are very young :D I remember my teenage years were one hell of a roller coaster of ups and downs, with probably more downs than ups! In a di...

Re: The Relationship Between Thoughts & Feelings.

You say that the key to more happiness is changing the meaning we apply to conditions as they arise. Reframing the way we perceive situations. Is there really a difference between thoughts and perceptions however? I had always assumed that the thoughts you were thinking ARE your perceptions. If I o...

Re: The Relationship Between Thoughts & Feelings.

My question to you guys is what is the relationship between how we think and how we feel? Is the way we think the only determining factor when it comes to how we feel? It's really less about the thoughts themselves, than it is about the meaning behind those thoughts. Sometimes thoughts are just wor...

The Relationship Between Thoughts & Feelings.

Hello everyone! I've been trying out a new state of perception recently. I've found that one thing that helps me stay in the present moment is to focus my mind on the relationship between what I am thinking and how it makes me feel. This way I can sort out the negative thoughts and replace them with...

Re: Someone help me please...

Hi Danny There is something I need to say . You are obviously having a lot of emotions regarding your goal and the non achievement of it, those emotions may need to be better viewed by you and so I'm wondering if you have had help or explained to anyone about the whole thing. I say this because if ...

Re: Someone help me please...

Hi Danny. I think you are chasing joy and running away from sadness. You are getting dragged down by whatever issues may be behind your sadness and you look at the self-help type books as something you should achieve but can't. You're hoping for the end of suffering. We've read that enlightenment i...

Re: Someone help me please...

I think you're experiencing the paradox that a lot of people have expressed confusion about on this forum: being in the moment can feel like a detachment from life. You talk about not feeling enthusiastic when you get up in the morning; when I awaken with enthusiasm usually that means I'm looking f...

Re: Someone help me please...

I "get" both of these things. I understand that the now isn't something I can receive in any other moment than the present. I accept that only I can change the way I'm feeling. I just don't know how! When I incorporate that clear state of presence I feel much more freedom from suffering than I do jo...

Re: Someone help me please...

Before this happened to me I was watching Eckhart Tolle videos and reading spiritual books. I can't help but notice that all of them are saying the same thing. They simply repeat the phrase that I am not who I think I am. Look towards the present moment and you will see that you have no problems. Li...

Someone help me please...

Please someone help me. I feel like i'm dying. I can't feel joy. I don't know why. I've read so many books and watched so many videos. I feel like some of them have brought me closer but I'm still missing something... Eckhart Tolles teachings offer me a temporary calm from suffering but even then I ...

Please Help! I'm can't stop talking to myself!

Hey guys I'm here with a problem that I noticed started back in about 4th grade. I'm in 11th grade now and this is it. Whenever I think back on past experiences I yell out or i curse out loud. I say things like "SHUT UP BEFORE I KIlL YOU" or something of the sort. Usually these past experiences have...

Re: Staying Sane In A World Filled With Comparison.

So you guys are saying that if I just observe these thoughts then they will go away? I feel like I've been observing them for a long time. I don't feel like the problem has to do with me not being aware of my thoughts. I feel like the problem is me not being able to control when I give into them and...
