I think you mean chitta... but, pertaining to the mind-
Manas is the lower mind, Chitta is the memory bank, buddhi is the intellect (decision maker), ahamkara is the ego.
Anyway, yeah, see if these meditation sessions are helpful, why not? I was never drawn to formal meditation, but others are...so have at it. I did what I would call meditation/Self inquiry.
I sort of feel like I hijacked her thread lol which was not my intent.
LTRs and dating always sets off my ego and pain body. It feels lose lose because when I date, I want to be free but when free I crave to with someone more seriously. Not just intimately but that too of course lol
I was out again in a bar recently. I felt social anxiety. Lot of guys. Posturing. The thought of interacting with strangers and of course, guys looking to fight or drunk. So, I am watching my buddy just dive in and this girl is right into him. Our buddies are admiring him because it takes courage to put yourself out there. Later, her friend pulls her away and I remember thinking I should have just invited the friend to come party with our group. Too little too late.
While all this is happening, I am getting in my head, and thinking too much. I am getting older. My friends are married, engaged, having children or doing LTR things. Here I am in a bar. When I was a kid, I thought for sure by now I would be married and have kids. Not sure why I thought this given my dating experiences lol Next a girl tries to give me a drink noticing my being spacey. A buddy comes over and we end up walking around and talking to girls. One sec, I am thinking crappy thoughts and sort of negative. Next I am dancing with a girl and she is giving her number. Its all so weird.
