Re: Help me get over my jealousy

Personally, I am not a jealous type and I could never understand why someone says that love is bland without some jealousy. Until I've experienced being jealous myself. Anyway, the thing with jealousy is, when you strip it down, is that there are previous accounts of some kind of betrayal plus our o...

Re: "Secular" mindfulness apps?

I was really never a fan of guided meditations. They are not allowing me to focus my attention to breath. I know you can choose your meditation object, but I prefer it to be my breath, not some other person's voice. Also, in my own opinion, Headspace is overpriced for what it's offering and I find t...

Re: On the Rohingya in Myanmar

I am feeling very thankful to be part of the Buddhist community who condemns this horrific crime. I am living in country where majority of people are Muslims, therefore, the genocide of Rohingya got some pretty serious media exposure. Most people were actually completely surprised by the fact that t...

Re: How to (try to) resolve family conflict?

Thank you all. Basically, the same thing I've expected to hear: you can't change anything and keep on :meditate: :smile: I am not even trying to help anymore. Back then, few years ago, I was giving my best advice, really trying to wear someone else's skin, but my advice were like steel armor - each ...

How to (try to) resolve family conflict?

Greetings everyone, since I've started meditating and went down the Buddhism rabbit hole, I've managed to recognize a few patterns in human behavior I wasn't aware of before, simply because I was doing (and I still am, but not that often) the same mistakes. Anyway, to keep this as short as possible,...

Re: Diets are dumb

Interesting that we are all different isn't it? And we should definitely celebrate it :) The thing is, in a way, we all advocate our principles, thoughts and ideas, but the silver lining is how aggressively we tend to do that. For instance, I would never approach someone or mock them because of the...

Re: Arachnoid cyst

Thanks for answers! In fact my only option for the next year or two is internet. That is why I asked about the very very general recommendations. I'm not familiar with TM. It may be that there is no possibility to advice something without a personal meeting ) I presume this is very serious thing, n...

Re: Arachnoid cyst

Greetings,

you've made me google this. It's pretty serious and I am glad hearing you are doing better.

However, for the sake of your own health, I warmly advise you to consult your doctor about this stuff.

Re: Diets are dumb

Since the original poster didn't write down any arguments and it's very easy to disrupt the theory that diets are stupid, I think most people misjudge diet as starving. It's not about that, it's about controlling. Yes, some diets do tend to lean toward fasting, but most of those are not permanent. E...

Re: Hello from Bosnia and Herzegovina

I've taken on meditation to cope with some personal problems that I've been experiencing in my life for the last few years. It's been done without any expectations, but that in combination with reading various Buddhist literature really got me on a different path Sounds very positive. Welcome. Than...
