Annoyance with conscientious people

I have found that I had started becoming annoyed with conscientious people the more conscientious I became myself. Even if I can value it in myself, I like it less when I see it in others. Yet I am not sure why concientiousness would even be a bad thing to begin with. I know that people can do bad t...

Re: Feel like I cant be free due to knowing too much

I have been seeing in myself now looking at a world where I judge something as pure evil. However, I have been wondering if I am making up this threat in my head of this personality that is so loyal to rules and certain principles, that they will advocate for brutal principles and harsh condemnation...

Re: How can I detach from anger when I hate anxiety/depressi

I have wondered if part of the anger is a defense mechanism from unwanted thoughts about ourselves being put in our heads. If someone shows me disrespect, I have wondered if the anger is over someone putting a thought in my head that I am inferior and deserve that treatment. So I wonder if the autom...

Is distaste for the Fact based consciousness a good sign

For myself, I know that facts are impersonal and neutral. With facts, I have noticed that they really dont give one care about what we do or do not want. I have also noticed that in what I call the laws of the ego is that A) Everything is relative to power and B) Competition or dualism is necessary....

Re: How can I detach from anger when I hate anxiety/depressi

I have been observing that I am getting more and more discontent with identification with the mind, since the only thing the mind can recognize are impersonal facts. Since the way we often times recognize reality is undesirable. Its that question of why should we surrender to reality when reality wo...

Re: How can I go beyond my identification with the will

I dont know if this is a limitation of the mind, but I find that the mind can only recognize something as being ether factual or not. However, I wonder if desire makes something real. At times, I sometimes ask why should we conform to reality when reality does not necessarily conform to our wishes. ...

Re: How can I detach from anger when I hate anxiety/depressi

I sometimes wonder if anger is really so dignifying or if its just proud. It seems like Anger has an appeal of some form of self empowerment, where one wants to change something that displeases them, and if something cannot be done to at least refuse to be sucked into and accommodate what has happen...

Re: How can I detach from anger when I hate anxiety/depressi

I don't know if this is solely my experience, but to me, those 3 emotions you mention are almost not distinguishable from one another. In other words, when I experience one, I often experience the other two as well. Or, perhaps, it might start out as anger coupled with anxiety, then quickly morph i...

Probably not.

How can I detach from anger when I hate anxiety/depression

I find that for me, anger gives me a sense of empowerment, where anxiety and depression just feel like defeat. In the presence of problems, Anger gives me the sense of fight where anxiety has too much flight. For me, when something unpleasant happens, my automatic response is to get angry. For examp...

How can I go beyond my identification with the will

I dont know if others have experienced this before, but I find that my volitional ego has become strong and stubborn. I have noticed for a while that I am fed up with the intellectual ego, in its ability to only see a reality that is exists independent of whether or not it should. For example, I hat...

Re: Do Fantasy and Mythology have anything to teach us

I have noticed that in most fantasies, there always seems to be some battle of good vs. evil. It seems like there is always a good and bad side. Yet I have wondered if that is only the surface meaning. I will admit that a fantasy would be awful boring if there was no good vs. evil. Yet at the same t...

Do Fantasy and Mythology have anything to teach us

Like Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, mythic series like Once Upon a Time, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed, or Lost. Or even ancient myths from different parts of the world, and other different classical and modern forms of folklore

The Lure of the Law of Attraction and enlightenment

I will admit that enlightenment has a greater appeal due to what is stated in the Law of Attraction as attracting more desireable circumstances. I find that the LOA has a certain essence that defies common sense, and the laws of the ego that says things are as they are, whether or not they are liked...
