  1. I agree with @Michael569 that a balanced diet is a better approach for many reasons. However, drinking tea, green tea, etc will inhibit your absorption of iron, which is usually thought of as a bad thing, but could be either I guess. You could also donate blood.
  2. @Someone here All intelligence is your intelligence, intelligence isn't owned by anyone so it's not two. Ironically someone can't teach you a thing unless you feel and resonate that it's also your intelligence. All learning is a dissolution of teacher and student, like ice melting into water.
  3. I guess all that matters is the realization that you're doing it. And doing it. and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it and doing it. And if you feel bad for doing it, you're doing it and doing it and doing it... Yup.
  4. OH SHIT. "For him "the installation of the super-ego can be described as a successful instance of identification with the parental agency," while as development proceeds "the super-ego also takes on the influence of those who have stepped into the place of parents — educators, teachers, people chosen as ideal models"." "The super-ego aims for perfection.[27] It forms the organized part of the personality structure, mainly but not entirely unconscious, that includes the individual's ego ideals, spiritual goals, and the psychic agency (commonly called "conscience") that criticizes and prohibits their drives, fantasies, feelings, and actions. "The Super-ego can be thought of as a type of conscience that punishes misbehavior with feelings of guilt. For example, for having extra-marital affairs."[33] Taken in this sense, the super-ego is the precedent for the conceptualization of the inner critic as it appears in contemporary therapies such as IFS.[34] The super-ego works in contradiction to the id. The super-ego strives to act in a socially appropriate manner, whereas the id just wants instant self-gratification. The super-ego controls our sense of right and wrong and guilt.[35] It helps us fit into society by getting us to act in socially acceptable ways.[24] The super-ego's demands often oppose the id's, so the ego sometimes has a hard time in reconciling the two.[27] Freud's theory implies that the super-ego is a symbolic internalisation of the father figure and cultural regulations." "The terms "id", "ego", and "super-ego" are not Freud's own. They are latinisations by his translator James Strachey. Freud himself wrote of "das Es",[48] "das Ich",[20] and "das Über-Ich"[30]—respectively, "the It", "the I", and "the Over-I" (or "I above"); thus to the German reader, Freud's original terms are more or less self-explanatory." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Id,_ego_and_super-ego
  5. He LOVES it. Cause he don't exist. Just some crazy clown to the rest of us.
  6. @dflores321 What do you want to do right now, what's the next logical step? Search for or apply for something else? Maybe the feelings of incompetency and being a fraud of deceptive, could be examined here and now or they might just be thought patterns that follow along wherever you go? Turn "I DON'T want it because" into what you DO want, where you DO want to go, how you DO want to feel. Then you get some ideas, inspiration and momentum. And it doesn't matter if any actual movement happens because the alignment with your own thoughts happens FIRST. Meditation then meditation studio.
  7. @dflores321 I'm not saying that there's anything at all wrong with your desire to work for a better company or for yourself and to do good. My point is, banks aren't 100% evil. The strange thing about life is that usually you have to find a way to truly appreciate something before it'll let you go. All this, THIS, it's all you, it's FOR you. Don't cut yourself off the the good that's available right now, anywhere. That's what meditation seeks to teach and embody and you can do it in a bank.
  8. @Nahm I thought it was the mandAla effect @Shin I also wrote the Berenstein Bears books, not to be confused with the Berenstain Bears books, not sure WTF those were.
  9. @dflores321 Usually when people start meditation studios, or yoga studios, or art galleries, or buy their first home, or do anything to make their dreams a reality, they get loans from big banks.
  10. I love this. Just connect with her as you are, with humor and love, I think that's the perfect approach. Encouraging her to truly connect with her own heart and intuition is a teaching beyond words.
  11. You have to stop seeing the two things at odds, and then you can more easily move more into the thing you really want to do. If you see them at odds you'll actually stagnate with both. Start to open your eyes to how one seamlessly fuels the other and appreciate it for its not separate assistance toward your true passion. You're telling me you don't get insights at work? Or motivation for spirituality? Appreciate the contrast itself.
  12. An awakening experience is causeless, so no matter what cause you attribute it to, it's an experience that is actually an experience of lack. Lack of believed thoughts that something is wrong, lack of thoughts that SAY something is lacking, someone is lacking, that you already know what's going on. So we say it's an experience of love or wonder or however we describe it. It should be seen as an experience that raises your standards, now you KNOW/FEEL what is possible when we drop the thoughts that say otherwise. The way is to sink into feeling, dropping thoughts. It's a very old "trick" to attribute that happiness/lack of anything wrong TO a person, place, substance or particular experience in the past. This is what you've been doing your entire life, Santa Claus brought me what I asked for and I was happy for a few hours. Santa Claus doesn't exist, the toy didn't make you happy, but those circumstances and beliefs allowed you to experience a window of time where no thoughts arose that fueled an underlying feeling that something was missing. 11 year old you thought, "Having a nerf gun would be great, I wish I had a new nerf gun, there's nothing good on TV right now, my brother ate all the oreos, that asshole!" Nothing has changed since. Everything has changed. It's Christmas everyday. Merry Christmas! Happy Birthday! Raise your standards for how you feel! Don't mistake the thought "I should feel better" for feeling itself. That thought is just as useless as a thought equating happiness with oreos or the nerf gun. Also note "feel better" has a double meaning. It means you're more aware, you heighten your senses, see with more clarity, AND AND AND you FEEL love. Maaagic.
