A discussion community revolving around Eckhart Tolle but not limited to him
Clouded wrote:I'm just wondering why some people are more blessed than others. Is it already predetermined for us, like written in the stars or something. Does everything really happen for a reason? Do these things really need to happen to me, and why these things out of all things? In all honesty, I'd trade all my life's knowledge with someone whose living a superficial, ignorant but HAPPY life. I'd rather be that girl whose obsessed with parties, being popular, looking good and owning material stuff than Socrates here.
Also, I don't get it, is experiencing negative feelings part of human nature or not? I've read a couple of books and some say that the drive to compete, jealousy, anger and sadness are what makes us human. Aren't most (all) of them caused by illusions? So illusions are part of human nature? But then I'm told that I'm pure love, or does that just apply to my soul and not my human form?

First time I read Fore's reply, I took it personally and I assumed that I was being shoo-ed away from the forum because I was always playing victim and people don't want me to spam the boards with all my unnecessary whining and attention seeking.
Fore: "That was not my intention, I have been away from this forum for some time and had no current impression of you or your current state of mind. I just wanted to give you some perspective on how bad things can really get, and that in all probability things are not that bad in comparison.
Whine away all you want, but what you said was not whining, it was a cry for help, get off the computer and go find a real person to talk to.

Clouded wrote:I am absolutely fine!! Stop assuming that I am depressed/crying for help based on my choice of words, you don't know how I am really feeling.

Clouded said: I don't know what my subconscious is thinking, I cannot give you an answer, I just have ideas, one piece of the puzzle and it may be from the wrong puzzle.
Every night, I fall asleep to the Four Agreements audio book in hopes that it will register in my subconscious and that I will apply them in my everyday thinking.
Clouded said: The I hate myself was a question not a statement, I was just trying to figure out what belief system is holding me back from moving on with my life.
