Hi from Italy

Postby Dimo » Wed May 29, 2013 10:37 am

My name's Roberto and I apologize for my not perfect English language :)
I'm 25 years old and i'm interested in the awakening because of a series of events. I wanted to find a life's meaning and because of my living questions i had some satori since I was 10 years old. But i didn't know what a satori was, so i didn't care about it.
In the 2010, I had anxiety problem in my first job experience in a foreign country and for this reason I left my job and I came back in Italy. But I didn't accept my weakness, so I began to read some psychological books. I was luck because the writer of thees books is awakened :). So I understood what happened to me while my satori. Since then I began to look for the awakening as the most important thing (or better the only thing) that matters in life.
I read Nisargadatta Maharaj, Eckhart Tolle, Gurdjieff.
Then I met a Master, a 50 years old woman who is awakened by herself thanks to the Osho books. I met her in an Italian forum :)
I know myself better thanks to her, above all the reasons about my dissatisfaction in life. But now i have to wake up :roll:
good awakening ;)

Thanks kiki ;)
Infact I have already two questions :D

1) I wrote two posts but they have not yet been approved, why?
2) why can't I contact moderators or other users privately?

Thank you again :)

1) New members have a probationary period where their posts are looked at and either approved for public viewing or disallowed by moderators to keep out spammers and trolls. I've only seen 2 posts by you, both of which have been approved. Also, keep in mind that moderators aren't always present, so what you post may take a while before being checked out by a moderator.

2) It could be that once your probationary period is up Private Messaging will be allowed (not really sure though, so send one to me now and see if it gets through).

I just found the 3rd one and approved it. Please make sure to read the forum rules viewforum.php?f=9, and remember to capitalize the beginning of sentences. :-)

Ok, I asked it because this post is less recent than the other two

Now, i can't. Where there is "Contact Kiki" there are no links :)

Dimo, click on my name - that will take you to my profile page; then you will find 2 contact links, one for E-mail and one for a private message on the left side of the page. Just a note: I am leaving the house for about 5 hours in just a bit, so you'll have to wait for a response.

In your profile page, on the left side, there is "Contact kiki" but there are no contact links.
But I think I can't see them maybe because I'm a new member.

That must be why. I have asked another moderator about this, but haven't received an answer yet.

Now I see your contact links and my posts don't need to be approved anymore ;)

PM functions are not active until the probationary period is complete.

It is the responsibility of new members to read the forum rules before posting. When a new post comes in for approval and it violates the rules at the outset, it may not get approved depending on severity. Personally, I do not like reading posts written in texting style, or lacking punctuation, or capitalization, or with prolific spelling errors. We welcome new members but our rules are there for a reason.

Writing rules are there to help with clarity on topics sometimes difficult to express in words, even in the best of conditions. Many members have English as a second language and proper writing style helps with the translation.
