  1. I find this very unnerving: It is not necessarily a red flag if she deliberately worked on overcoming this issue and is aware how she got into these kinds of relationships. If she didn't, I would entertain the possibility that you are similar to these males in very unexpected ways and that your relationship has potential to become toxic over time. I suggest that you inquire in this direction. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that you are the first good guy for her and that you are going to save her.
  2. Please elaborate on what your definition of love is. What does it mean that she loves you and what does it mean that you don't love her? What does it mean that you loved your ex and that she did not love you back? Love is not something that just happens to people. It's also a choice that is made and maintained.
  3. During the weekend I was unable to uphold my social media/youtube detox. A lot of emotional turmoil was happening, also between me and my wife and I felt drained. I did cook for myself, but I did not do any stretching and scheduling. I do not feel guilty because of this. What I do feel guilty for is that I did not read as much Bible as I would want to. I'm still 350 pages in. After finding out the importance in Christ in Holy Trinity, I gave in and decided to read the Book of Jon. The fact that I feel like I "gave in" speaks a lot about how critical of myself I am. I'm holding to my promises too tightly, but they are one of the few things that I find dependable.
  4. I don't mind. With this kind of logic, I would have to restrict my options to people I know absolutely no personal details of. Not in my experience. Have a good day.
  5. Hey @Buba. I'm under the impression that you think that this homosexual part of you is somehow going to derail your life, that you will partake in daily orgies or something. This belief is false. If this transition is too rapid for you, rest assured that you are still under full control of your faculties and will do exactly what you want to. You are not doing anything other than that - learning what you want to do. It does not mean that you have to do it. Imagine thinking that mint chocolate is disgusting and awful. Would you react so strongly if you learned that it is actually pretty tasty? Does the fact that mint chocolate is tasty somehow imply that you will stuff your face uncontrollably with it? Does it even mean that you have to eat it if you don't want to? No!
  6. I don't know about you specifically @Patrick Lynam, but I noticed that I have bigger urges to masturbate when I'm lonely. This hole in your chest and calling for mommy sound like an unfulfilled need for love. Porn is often a prosthesis for that just like TV is often a prosthesis for human companionship. I recently remembered that I learned to masturbate as a kid when I was waiting after school for my parents to get back home. I'd investigate loneliness if I were you.
  7. Did you know that the term "projection" was invented by Freud, the father of psychoanalysis? This mother/father stuff is the focus of psychology because child development is additive - new layers/functions are built on top of the old ones. If child's needs aren't addressed by the parents, it will learn to satisfy them unconsciously by adopting coping mechanisms that will last a lifetime unless addressed. That is where the sex part comes in - these unconscious behaviors usually come bunched up with sex because it is an "adult" form of love. If you are interested, you could look up Erik Erikson's model of psychosocial development. It looks similar to spiral dynamics.
  8. Hey @Angelite, sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Karma is usually associated with religions of the far East - Buddhism and Hinduism - and is related to the idea that an individual soul traverses various bodies until it attains wisdom/liberation. Each life is a lesson for this soul and is a consequence of how it shaped itself in (or responded to) the lives it went through. The original "seeds" of karma are created along with the universe. In various religions, this karmic process is interpreted on different levels. Some religions view it in a materialistic, objective, way. Some, on the other hand prefer more esoteric views (such as Zen Buddhism) that this is the process by which thoughts arise in consciousness. In Yoga Sutras, it is said that by mediating (satori) upon the "I", the karmic seeds are dissolved and it is possible to attain knowledge of past lives (as siddhi). My personal beliefs about reincarnation hinge upon my understanding of the relationship between intelligence and ego. Ego literally feeds off intelligence and uses it for the purpose of survival. Upon the death of the body, the soul is freed from its biological constraints and perceives the world with unparalleled clarity. The soul then chooses, selflessly, the best possible action and it may result in an incarnation in a body. Lives it lives through, apart from being a chance to act in accordance with love, are a lesson that the soul learns in each cycle. Ultimately, they result in the union with God.
  9. @d0ornokey I can relate to your pain. Seeing other people hurt themselves because they are hurt is just soul-crushing. It's difficult to not give advice when you see it. I've come to understand that offering solutions does not work because coming up with them is actually not all that difficult. People know what they should do in order to be happy, but they don't take their pain and suffering seriously enough to act on it. Helping them get in touch with it, actually live it with them is much better in my experience. Take care.
  10. For the past two days I went totally off the rails. No scheduling, no promises but I kept to my routines. My back started to hurt because I was trying to keep it straight 😂. I found a comfortable spot where my muscles aren't strained, but I can walk upright like a proper human 🐒.
  11. @Rebecca Kalamata Loneliness is the price for breaking every social taboo... to get to what, TRUTH? Hmm? The ego is deceitful precisely because it is fragile and powerless. By not honoring it, you are disposing of your humanity. Maybe that's why you don't fit in, Mrs nympho?
  12. I can't sleep. I went to bed at 7 p.m. and woke up at 2 p.m. Lots of thoughts about reality, God, Christianity, Islam, reincarnation, Hermeticism and my threefold division of experience. I may have to start an insight journal soon to offload them. The social media/music detox is a success in the sense that I'm munching on Wikipedia instead .
  13. I'm not just new to Qran, but also to religion in the common sense in general. I was born and raised atheist. From my limited knowledge, what Christians call "the day of Resurrection" refers to Jesus' second coming during the Apocalypse (but I may be wrong in this matter). Does Qran address the Apocalypse? Who is the person that is resurrected during Qran's day of Resurrection? Does Jesus hold any special place in Islam's analogue of the Holy Trinity? Is there any analogue of it? Is Christ "Word made flesh": an incarnation of Logos that is sent by God to teach humans His ways? Alright, that's clear. How does this relate to reincarnation? Do people get reincarnated as lower forms because they have inflicted hurt on others and have not been forgiven/dealt with? That makes retribution an act of mercy because unless you give your hurt back, you are condemning your enemy to be reincarnated. When does reincarnation of an individual soul stop in Islam? Is it when the soul achieves certain purity through forgiveness ("Higher ranks")? How does forgiveness and purity relate to Jesus? Is he a special person (or God?) in this regard? This picks my interest, tell me more about it. I can see that may relate to the passage that you mentioned ("So We caused among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection"). What are these two groups? Which among Christians want to kill Jesus?
  14. This is so awesome: To think that these squiggly lines convey meaning is just mind-blowing. ______________________________________________ Here's a link to an article that explains something that bothered me for a long time. Here's more stuff, even more interesting. An excerpt: So, according to Christian doctrine - Christ is both God and man. He is a man born from a mother, but he is also God. He is "not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh; but by assumption of the Manhood into God.". His function, purpose makes him God - a pathway to God, salvation. for other humans. Nope??? There seems to be a difference between Christ and Jesus? I wonder what the "unity of Person" means. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ousia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godhead_in_Christianity
  15. Was the "portion of that of which they were reminded" ever mentioned in Qran? Or is it that according to Qran, Christians are bound to wait until the Day of Resurrection to learn what they forgot? Is the Qran's Day of Resurrection the same as the one mentioned in the Bible? I'm having trouble understanding the underlined sentence. The prophets who submitted to Allah judged by it for the Jews, <~ that is clear as did the rabbis and scholars by that with which they were entrusted of the Scripture of Allah, and they were witnesses thereto. <~ ??? The above sentence is split in two as if prophets did something different from rabbis and scholars. The contents of the sentence however, seem as if they did the same thing - they judged for the Jews according to Torah, which is a part of the Scripture of Allah. So, the whole first paragraph seems as if Allah is saying that one should not fear the judges (prophets, rabbis and scholars), but Him. That is because the Torah is only a part of Scripture of Allah that is for the Jews, specifically? This is also not clear to me. If I am giving up my right for retribution, then is that: an expiation for me? or is it an expiation for the person that had hurt me? These two interpretations give a very different pictures of what a sin is. From the POV of the scripture - yes, the Christian Bible contains the Old testament. Jews, however, reject Christ as their prophet, so no - Christians are not Jews. Here's an article that I haven't read. That is very interesting. I have a difficult case of a hard heart .
