Ever notice how, when you're in a good mood and being friendly, everyone around you seems nicer?

I don't know what your job is but usually people that work 8 hours every day and have to deal with people in their work aren't always in the best moods afterwards. Sometimes its hard to be happy even if you want to, because sometimes people just bring you down. Thats really great that you can smile all the time and are a happy person, just keep it up. Don't discriminate against someone though if they aren't as happy as you, sometimes its harder than you think.

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

I agree with Kindkesey...how can anyone ever be too happy or friendly?

Beautiful post, Kaiowas.  You always seem to post something like this right when I need to hear it. :heart:

Quote:

there's not enough love in this world, some balance needs to be restored.  :smile: 




I swear I had almost the exact same thought last night.  Sometimes it seems like the Shroomery is the only place I can go to be with people who accept and spread love.  The world is an amazingly beautiful place, but it's also so full of hate and unnecessary pain.  The duality baffles me at times - why choose hate when love can do so much?

I had an 18 year old kid break down on me at work last night because of all the shitty things her parents have said to her over the years.  Only 18 years old and she feels like "a failure at life."  Poor kid hasn't even started her real life (not that high school bullshit) and she's already given up.  The kid's working 2 jobs and starting college next week and still gets nothing but shit at home.

Sorry to veer a little off-topic there, but it's been on my mind all day.  I love you guys. :sun:

Oh man, this thread is exactly what I need. I've been getting so overwhelmed by the amount of cruelity people treat each other with, along with the negative amount of games people try to play. It's entirely boring and depressing to play along with those games and try to outdo & out rank each other.


I really wish there were more people who didn't buy into those things. They never make much sense except to try and serve yourself.


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

jenny, I work two jobs and have to "deal" with people. 

it is hard, believe me,m I've been in some very extreme circumstances.  but se that's the thing, we all have to a certain extent, you will never know how I have suffered, but in turn I will never know how you have suffered.  but in the end, are you going to be the one to say your suffering is more than mine?  no...can you imagine being beat only a daily basis by ones you love for the first 10 years of your life, being in constant threat and fear? if you can then you know what I mean, if you can't, when there there you go.  But at the same time, I'm not going to go up to you and say, hey I've suffered more than you..etc etc and you "should" be this certain way cause "I know more" 

yes it's not as easy at it seems, but we are worth trying for, aren't we? :heart:

bliss is where it is at IMHO.


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.

Lovely post, Kiaowas.

I used to be a proud possessor of the Shiny&Sunny disposition that you wear on your sleeve today.
Yes, what happened? Primarily lack of love, ever since I've lived. It is for this reason that up to this very day, I am often percieved as a cold and silent individual with a dark albeit strong attitude by others who have a limited interpersonal relationship with me, which is most people. At the same time, those who have known me for much longer will have more warmer and fonder perceptions of me.
Everybody has their own unique primary challenge in life, be it psychological, societal or physical.
Without getting into epic biographies and memoirs of my life to elucidate why I have grown to become a love-impaired individual; This is what my personal challenge is... to keep from turning into love-less human being.
I always knew, deep down inside, that love would be my one big challenge in Life.. and often vision myself being an old, accomplished man with an abundance of wealth in many ways..except for one thing: A true love life. No one to share my life with on a romantic level.. Sometimes I embrace it and accept it.. but other times, I can see a glimpse of what a terrible risk it might be... to have no love.

Animals, are my best lovers.
