  1. That face he makes when he says "What's dressed up as this person, IS THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE." Had me lolling so hard!
  2. Don't be ridiculous. Only the most enlightened ones among us have experienced the banana life.
  3. @sausagehead Hey somebody mentioned my name, I Have to say something really funny, a belief I Was buffing out of my nervous system recently was that "this will never be healed". When you feel like you can't ever heal that is actually the evidence of this healing taking place. Isn't that a dope realization.
  4. Hi Gadasaa! While the ego is certainly something that is very painful to unravel, the goal on a spiritual path isn't to get rid off the ego, push it away, and nor is it wrong at any point to have an ego. As we go through childhood and conditioning societally, we develop ego to cover up the wounds we haven't been necessarily able to process. This brings two revelations. Firstly, ego is your friend, and you are it's wise guide, it has always been there to protect you from not being able to process the trauma in your nervous system. Secondly, healing and integrating your ego does not equal deleting your personality. You will always have choices, free will, desires and individuality. Ego is just the reactivity we have our personality covered with. So you can totally still find success after fully healing, integrating and awakening. It's just gonna give you a vastly different perspective and experience. To be one with all does not mean give up your autonomy. When you are one with all, you are in an intimate relationship with all. In such an intimate relationship, that there is no separation, and it's really wonderful, and yet this wonderfulness will be experience through the personality of your autonomous individual self.
  5. Id rather turn a human being into a banana. I LOVE bananas. SO MUCH that I am sure that I was a monkey in a past life.
  6. yeah you got it No, because it is coming from an initial place of un-okayoness. I mean think about it, if you were truly okay with it, you wouldn't need to visualize anything. Instead admitting to yourself that you might not be ok with certain situations and emotions honestly, honoring the authenticity in your subconscious mind might be more helplful. This is a really common thing that we take on from our parents in upbringing. As guys, we often get the sense that certain emotions and feelings, and having emotional needs isn't okay, due to the relationship we have with our mother early on. When you think back to your childhood, I bet you could probably find instances of your mom (and I say mom specifically) acting out or being upset and manipulative as a result of you wanting to have your emotional needs met. Then we can actually look at the pattern of you trying to visualize the scenario and say OH MY GOD, it's a continuation of a manipulative pattern that I was exposed to during my childhood. And see that's why it won't work. Its not that visualizing scenarios cant be helpful, but while doing so youre recreating an unresolved pattern.
  7. no you don't have to visualize any bad scenarios. When you're doing this you're actually avoiding the rawness of the experience when bad scenarios actually happen and you're using self-love as a form of emotional manipulation. You don't need to visualize a bad scenario, you just gotta be willing to go through the visceral experience of negative emotions that come as a result of a negative circumstance. Basically you're affirming a belief that being devastated and feeling bad isn't okay. So now you know.
  8. @Charlotte Not sure what you mean. I think theyre all fun to use, it seems to be helpful to people so I just kind of leave it here.... I dont wish to write guides on how to heal oneself anymore.
  9. I think there is a typo in the translation. Picaso in this situation was just being mean towards the man, shaming his "FAT" wife, not actually addressing the flatness of the object on which she was portrayed......... Its a mistake many historians make, heck its still in most textbooks. Only the most up-to date scholars know the truth
  10. @Aaron p wooooo yayyyy 🙅🏻‍♀️❤️
  11. Awesome question and observation. Self-love is a way to melt our own resistance to relief, relaxation and the positive spectrums of emotions. When you sit in meditation, there are two ways in which that can go. Its either to move deeper into our experience, or to dissociate and dis-engage from experience. A dissociative way of meditating isnt the most integrated approach to spirituality as it further denies the importance of our emotional experience. And while it can certainly expand awareness and consciousness, connect you to higher levels of reality, it doesnt honor the gruelling intensity of our human experience. Self-love is respectful in that regard, nay it is of the highest importance. Unless we approach our meditations, contemplations and spiritual ambitions with interest and affection towards our bodies and emotional experiences, we are just playing out patterns of avoidance.
  12. @kev014 Much more relaxed, not too rushed, not as much of a structured way. More of listening to our emotions, more appreciating our inner child, less work, more patience, more kind parenting of ourselves as if we were our own children. :-)
  13. @Jordan94 ps when I wrote this guide I Was in a very tryhard place on my journey. It certainly isnt the most integrated way of approaching ones emotional healing.
  14. @Jordan94 There isnt a really way how its supposed to be done. Its just an exploration into what feels good, relaxing, supportive and nourishing for your emotions. Its not a matter of trying to heal, its a matter of allowing the healing that has always been underway. :-)
  15. I think the living without it is wayy more challenging.
