  • The loss of the future that cannot be, the loss of the innocents of love is painful.

    There is a time for all things and I think it’s important to take the time to mourn the loss of the imagined future that cannot be. The experience was and is important to you and needs to be respected.

    Such break’s ups also cause one at a conscious and sub…[Read more]

  • Archetypes are the larger-than-life, mythic-scale personifications of the stages that we pass through as we mature. The youth, the lover, the wanderer, the joker, the warrior, the healer, king or queen, the wise man, the mystic, the hero – each of course has there shadow side.

    The warrior can be a helpful Archetype to tap into, especially in c…[Read more]

  • Interesting conundrum
    Does our reality create our thoughts or do our thoughts create our reality? Both?

    There is a hermetic saying as above so below as below so above. We are influenced and we influence,

    The question becomes a matter of consciousness and discernment. When are my thoughts influencing my reality and when is reality is influencing…[Read more]

  • Forgiveness is an Art and takes skill to practice sadly for many forgiveness has become a platitude.

    Forgiveness is not forgetting it’s a letting go. What do we let go of? for one thing we let go of our call for revenge which only bound us more firmly to the ones who hurt us. Letting go of vengeance is often mistaken as meaning a letting go of r…[Read more]

    Dealing with critisicm is a skill
    I would recommend Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes Are High by Kerry Patterson

  • Mourning a loss of a relationship without understanding why makes it all that much more difficult..

    The principle of charity suggests that if we are unable to know the reason for someone actions and that there are many possible explanations then to avoid negativity pick the most positive one.

  • I haven’t read the book but from Goodreads description I’m not seeing any new idea’s.

    For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. “F**k positivity,” Mark Manson says. “Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it.” In his wildly popular Internet blog, Mason doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate.…

    “The most painful state of being is remembering the future, particularly the one you’ll never have.” ― Søren Kierkegaard

    You are torn between two worlds, the dream and the choices. You pursued your dream however missing your family you made the choice to return home and now mourn the loss of a dream. That choice to return home was perfec…[Read more]

    Thanks Anitia
    I’ve had Tinnitus for 13 years now and have done a great deal of research
    For some reason in the last two weeks the buzz has increased in volume significant. enough to keep me awake at night. and question my sanity.

    Its scary… I’m not sure if I will be able to handle it if this is my new normal

  • Peter posted an update 1 week, 1 day ago

    In need of positive thoughts and prayers as I struggle coming to terms with tinnitus and hearing loss.

    • Dear Peter:

      I hope your tinnitus is not severe. I sure hope you can come to terms with it soon. Wikipedia has a good entry on tinnitus (I just googled). It is often associated with hearing loss. It reads that in 75% of people it doesn’t get worse over time- I hope you are within this percentage. Sometimes a hearing aid or sound generator may…[Read more]

    • Dear Peter:

      I can feel your fear. I understand it. I relate in the sense that I suffer from Tourette Syndrome; these tics, there is discomfort every time a tic takes place, and tics happen multiple times every hour. Very uncomfortable. I used to think that through healing, these will stop. But not so. It is possible, very possible that these will…[Read more]

    Nice, well written. In a few words you wrote what I suspect many of us feel. bitter sweet.

    J. R. R. Tolkien

    All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither,
    Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
    From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
    A light from the shadows shall spring;
    Renewed…

  • Do our experiences crate our thoughts or do our thoughts crate our experience? (read create… but I like crate)

    I suspect it both.

    We often have little control over the influence’s coming from the outer world however we can influence the stories and thoughts we tell ourselves and in way create the growth we hope for.

    At 55, I am reeling trying to figure out how I why I remained so long?

    I waited because I believed in him and his goodness. I still do. I realized the commitment we made to one another was no longer viable on his end and had been waning for some time without any in person availability. I knew a phone relationship was not going to build a lasting…

  • I’ve had a similar experience with the relationship to Love as Jock noted.

    Relationships, what’s love got to do with it? Everything and nothing???
    – Love must be present but does not mean a physical/material/worldly relationship should be maintained.
    – Love is “all there is” and so always present even when you don’t feel the thrill of being in…[Read more]

  • Peter replied to the topic In need of guidance in the forum Tough Times 1 week, 5 days ago

    It has been my observation that it is very difficult for family to help family when it comes to depression.
    As you noted any guidance can be received in a negative way. I think one of the problems is that family can’t be natural as we care about what happens to them and well to us.
    It is also likely that each member of family has unfinished w…[Read more]
