  1. @Danioover9000 I've actually been contemplating on the role of cognitive dissonance in human behavior in general (esp in the light of Leo's recent video on social matrix), and yes, it can be a major factor of toxicity forcing the mind to conform and/or take sides out of the need to survive. If used consciously, though, cognitive dissonance can also be used to push the mind through doubts and fears and in the right direction when resolving an issue or making a decision, for example.
  2. The ego takes everything personally cos it thinks it's a person
  3. @Sri McDonald Trump Maharaj @Milos Uzelac Thank you, both, for your feedback. I just turned in my essay

  5. Actually, the way it really works is that we subconsciously choose a partner who reminds us of our parent of the opposite sex, for girls it's their dad, for boys their mom. And not just looks-wise but certain personality traits-wise as well. We look for familiarity in who we find attractive, someone we feel 'at home' with.
  6. @Nobody_Here Interestingly, a smart integrated guy like Eben picked a partner who is almost the opposite looks-wise from a conventional 'model of the year's type. Annie Lalla is quirky, short haired, small breasted, hippy-like little woman, not a super young, blond, big busted type. She's not super popular and has very modest YT subscription, which tells me she's not into competition and numbers. Though her content is quite good with a lot of wisdom and substance, mostly teaching about psychology and relationships. Same can be also said about Eckhart Tolle's, Adya's, Rupert's marriages. There is more depth and maturity present than in an average conventional romantic relationship.
  7. @nistake I already knew from reading your posts The awoke in 'me' recognizes the awoke in 'you'
  8. The "Socratia Exorhiza" palm is unique, because it moves from one place to another until it reaches more sunny places

  10. @Gregory1 Check out a local wellness center for a Nutrition Response test. I did a full body detox (including heavy metal detox) a few years ago under their supervision. They use potent formulas that are designed to bind and pull toxins out of the body. This is a process that can't be rushed. Thorough detox takes time to be done safely and effectively. Office visits were $40 plus you buy their supplements which are very affordable. They will also help correct any vit/mineral deficiencies and underlying issues you might have. The results are amazing, you will feel like a brand new person after just a few weeks, and you will look years younger too. You basically rejuvenate on a cellular level. I also go to dry sauna twice a week for maitenance, 180F, 2 x 20 mins sits - supposed to help pull toxins/heavy metals as well.
  11. @QandC 'Remember' what was before your apparent birth
  12. It's been almost 2 yrs since my beloved dog Max passed and I still find myself deeply feeling the loss. He was such a wonderful and loyal companion for over a decade. I was doing fine for a long time, until a few days ago while visiting my coworker who has 2 little dogs. All of a sudden all the emotions and memories about my Max started to flood back, the bitter sweet mix of both the happy and sad. I miss him so much, he's on my mind when I go to bed at night and the first thing when I wake up in the morning. I'm doing some inner work on the stages of grief to consciously process this and heal. Will there ever be a closure, a letting go? Please share if you've had a similar experience with a beloved pet. Thank you <3
  13. @Myioko Thank you for sharing and for the kind and comforting words, means a lot <3
