  1. Where do negative thoughts come from.

    The mindset that things should be a different way than they are. It is the epitome of resistance and causes much inner turmoil... ...yet to struggle against the negative is to be in resistance of how things are. Questions like these cause the mind to go round and round. It's like asking "Why do bad things happen to good people?" There may be no "Ah-ha" moment or any answers. Maybe it's just acceptance of it that causes the negative thoughts to start to quiet down. My own experience ... when I really started to seriously practice accepting things how they are... myself...my family... the world... my mind really started to quiet down. Once the mind quiets down, your able to see little threads of thoughts arising. You start to see “why does this thought arise?” Is related to inner work I have to do. Maybe the negative thought/habit has been there since childhood, maybe a past life or maybe last year... it’s like peeling an onion back. The more quiet you get, the more subtle things you notice. Then you think, if I’m accepting it all anyway, then what work really needs to be done? Then i forget the whole thing and go out for a walk and smile. 🙂

  7. What is God from a Taoist viewpoint?

    Why thank you! 😊 I’m not quite the manager, more of a lowly servant...but it’s nice to be appreciated ❤️
  8. What is God from a Taoist viewpoint?

    I would love to see a thread about your own background and stories, like a mini biography. Sounds like an interesting read, if you were ever inclined to share such details.

  10. Gospel of Thomas

    For me this has to do with emptiness and form. Her jar was empty all along, yet she thought it was full and going about her merry way. It wasn’t until she reached the end of her journey that she realized there was nothing there.

    You miss nothing... and I would be open to hearing others thoughts on the matter too 😊

    Especially if you start over and find out you liked it better the first way.
  13. You Will Get Precognition! A new free blogbook

    Listening to impersonal principles more so than feelings... not for me. I’d rather be wrong and listen to my gut.

    Yes, us westerners like our pictures.

    No, more towards the OP.
