Re: Beyond Shame - the power of vulnerability - Brene Brown

Jen, Thanks for your response. Yes, I was suspecting that the reason your books are not out there yet might have something to do with this. You mentioned previously that you needed to gain some more confidence. I understand that completely. Same for me, too. I want to share two more things that cros...

Re: Beyond Shame - the power of vulnerability - Brene Brown

Jen, Thanks for sharing the links . I have come across the vulnerability video before. But I didn’t know about the text about her reaction to her TEDx video. This vulnerability thing is a big problem for me, too. What I found amazing was how the universe coaxed me along the way to share. The first t...

Re: Who is in control?

lost, since you seem to struggle with decision making: That was a huge problem for me, too. But gradually I came to see the following : when I was in inner peace, then I would be able to access guidance in some form. Either as inner voiceless voice. Or as a dream. Or as a pattern of events that had ...

Re: Who is in control?

Hi, I find it hard to discuss these topics theoretically. Therefore, I like to share some stories of actual application. Here is my experience with the issue of choice or no choice: I was able to choose the anger of ego or inner peace. When in anger, light bulbs would burn out. When in peace, little...

Re: The end of a personal you

Yes, Alex , this is indeed what it comes down to. This end of a personal me is inherent in the shift of the identity. And from concepts in comes down to the nitty-gritty real tangible everyday stuff. I define myself as a mother to my children . In my head, the concept of a good mother is that I have...

Re: The Fear of completely Letting Go

Hi , I can relate to that. I was always afraid of how things would turn out. And my coping strategy was not so much excessive worrying , but much more excessive planning. How that has changed? Well, I was weaned in baby steps from this control habit. I forgot little things. And the universe showed m...

Re: Positive thoughts presence......

Hi George, Disturbing Situations when something disturbing happens to me and I feel anger rising, then I try to become quiet inside. That means my first choice is not for a positive thought but for inner peace. Then, from this inner peace I can try to get access to another perspective on the disturb...

Re: Your summary of your search

Ashley, thanks for sharing about the anxiety disorder. That is very helpful for me at the moment. I find that the spiritual path at a certain point requires to let go of fear. At the moment, I feel that I am pushed to do exactly that : putting myself into situations that elicit fear - only to find o...

Re: mind aware of mind?

xpansion, I hear your frustration and am sorry that I could not explain it clearer. I will try again. The inward look is very simple. The simplest presentation I can think of is here http://www.justonelook.org/ on the video. Before I was able to do this inward look, there was some preparation for me...
