How are you?
    #3599778 - 01/08/05 07:31 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

This is going to be a simple question, but at the same time not so simple..

So how are you all doing?
How is your life in general, do you have piece in life, are you desperate, lonley, does your phylosophy help you in any way?
Do you feel like you are here for a reason, do you feel like you are heading somewhere? Are you at peace with yourselfs?
Dou you feel you are missing something in life?

I feel spiritually dead. I called my love tonight and now I hate myself for giving in. I am on a journey, but now I'm stuck in molasses. Not at peace with myself. I am missing my love.

I feel completely lost and lonely. I'm not happy with anything in my life and I want to change but Can't. I've been like this for well over a year now too. I feel like im heading deeper into my hole and feel theres no way out. Im missing connection with everyone and everything...

A pretty grim start. I think everyone should puit their defenses (that we see to much on this forum lately) down and say a few words
about what goes on in their minds.

i am knee deep in that old fear personally... with everything thats going on in my life it is all untrodden ground, and uncertainty is no freind of mine... whatever tomorow brings i guess.

I would really like to hear more people respond to this
I always had the idea that this is a place where people
are peacefull and have found themselfs. I hope current responds speak nothing of the majority from SandP

So how are you all doing?
Very well, thanks. How are you doing?

How is your life in general, do you have piece in life, are you desperate, lonley, does your phylosophy help you in any way?
Since my philosophy of life is in accordance with the fundamental truths of the universe, and since most of my actions are in accordance with this philosophy, my life is very peaceful and joyous.

Do you feel like you are here for a reason,
I'm here to spread the light.

do you feel like you are heading somewhere?
I try to be in a constant state of transcendence. If I try to stand still then I'm actually moving backwards for change is the only constant.

Are you at peace with yourselfs?
Yes.

Dou you feel you are missing something in life?
I feel that nothing is missing, but that there still remains much to realize.

You know on TV, those linoleum floors that are covered with muddy paw prints and greasy spills, and then they get "swiffered" by the latest cleaning agents and get all clean and sparkly? Well, those grimy messes were my soul, BEFORE THE FORCES OF DARKNESS SWIFFERED THEM INTO NONEXISTENCE!!! ASRRGGHHHH

That's right people, my insides, the deepest core of my being, feels like a _______*

*Fill in the blank! 1)choose one or more of the following adjectives: dark, cold, empty, swampy, dessicated.

Or create your own! think of the qualities of any of the following desolate landscapes: Desert, arctic tundra, deep sea chasms, bomb-blasted cities, clearcuts, and then use the words you would describe them as adjectives for your own inner world! But focus on the negative aspects of these environments, not the qualities of them that make you feel peaceful and calm, for example.

2)Match the adjective to any of the following nouns: Hole (includes pits and chasm), rift (differs from the hole metaphor in that it implies a blank space opening up between two aspects of, in this case, the self that are slowly but inevitably drifting apart), void, emptiness, etc. If you need more, get a thesaurus and look up "hole".

Boom, you're done, you know how I, and most of you, feel. Not that we all feel the same, we just aren't clever enough to differentiate ourselves with our language or tone.. For that we use "brand-name" shirts.

I guess I'd feel better but I have a STUPID belief system that goes against the natural tendency of the universe. I don't know, constantly fighting against the flow seemed smart until a couple weeks ago, when I read A Beginners Guide to an Introduction to Daoism Through a Simplified Version of the Daodejing. Now, I see my flaw.

Pheonix, or rather, The pheonix, the state you describe sounds like an excellent place to be, like the one daoist ascetics (according to the book I read) strive towards for their entire lives.. I wonder how you accomplished this with only 171 posts, and perhaps you could share your methods? Thanks

I had a vision that man kind was doomed because they are all suicidal monkeys that are just intelligent enough to realize the world is going to hell in a hand basket but to stupid to do anything about it.

And I didn't care, because I too am one of these insane monkeys, stumbling aimlessly and destroying all he touches. So, nothing left to do but revel in my insanity.

"So how are you all doing?"

Okay, you know, life has its ups and downs.

"How is your life in general, do you have piece in life, are you desperate, lonley, does your phylosophy help you in any way?"

Everything is going the way I think it is probably supposed to be going. I get caught up sometimes in thinking the way I used to think, but I suppose that's natural. For the most part, I am happy and find life to be extremely entertaining.

"Do you feel like you are here for a reason, do you feel like you are heading somewhere?"

Yes!!!

"Are you at peace with yourselfs?"

Mostly, yes.

"Dou you feel you are missing something in life?"

No, I feel like life is the way it's supposed to be going.

Your question answers itself. :smile: The number of posts I've made has no bearing on my level or enlightenment. This forum is part of my life, but no less important in my spiritual evolution than any other. Indeed, that's the key: to permeate every single aspect of your life with awareness, to fundamentally change your entire being, leaving no stone unturned, no darkness dark.

What does number of posts have to do with it?
It's not like this site is some sort of academy for feeling good.
Or academy for enlightenement. People find both alone, and then come to talk about it here. But if you are finding enlightenement by listening to other people's opinions here, then I am sceptical about that enlightenement. All you can gain here is perhapse learn to free your mind, but won't directly give you enlightenement.
