What makes you unhappy about nothing and everything?

That I am forced to be here against my will, like I'm in prison.

If a person wants out, he/she should be given it, no questions asked .. at least for a lump sum.

Re: Movies with a spiritual message ?

Anesthesia (2015) It's about the lives of multiple people/families intersecting, and about people figuring out what their priorities in life are, i.e. disillusionment . I'm a huge fan of Kristen Stewart, so it was a natural choice for me, but if you watch nothing else from it, please watch the scen...

Re: Request to y'all

I just care about being sincere whenever I allow my mouth to open, and hope for the same from you. You got it! ... I use to suffer all the time. Just about everything made me suffer to some degree. It sucked. I wont go on about it. Many here know my "story". Something inside me changed though, over...

Re: Request to y'all

Why do you want to talk so much about your suffering? This is best explained indirectly with a comparison/analogy. For the same reason that people who have everything they want going for them, ramble on and on in pages upon pages of blogs, video blogs, etc, about which car they bought or which home...

Re: Request to y'all

Greetings pB! I just wrote this on a Krishnamurti site, thought you'd get what I mean: "I've had lots of pain in my life, both physical and emotional. At some point my attitude towards this pain changed ... from bemoaning it to learning from it. Pain and suffering can be great teachers. They can al...

Request to y'all

I speak to y'all now, not as a devoted Eckhart disciple, but as just another human being going through ... it. I have realized, from my time on this site, that I am separated from most of you, by the fact that a lot of you are well read about spirituality and this spiritual teacher and that spiritua...

Re: Movies with a spiritual message ?

Eternal misery? I think I must have missed that. At least the eternalness of it. I've had some tough years as most all of us likely have had. And even though there are still some tough times, I see nothing eternal about it. It may by that you are simply in those tough years that often happen in our...

Re: If happiness is a normal reaction to ... ???

Look at this from the perspective of one single person. Whenever someone becomes depressed, in response to whatever they consider "bad" They? Too often 'they' are the blind leading the blind. The more I learned to consider less what 'they' have to say, the more I found clarity in my own insights. S...

Re: If happiness is a normal reaction to ... ???

WW, I think you completely missed the point of my post (or I didn't make it clear ... or both). What I wrote is more from the angle of "depression" and "mental illness", rather than "spirituality". I didn't intend for this to be a debate about morals and ethics or what is "right" or "wrong". Of cour...

If happiness is a normal reaction to ... ???

Re: Relationships and feelings of need

Hi girlpace, and welcome to the forum. Your question is a totally valid and important one. Now, before you read my words, you need to know that these words are coming from someone who is the biggest failure when it comes to relationships. So, I'm really good at knowing what doesn't work. I have scre...
