  3. Some Signs and Symptoms of Inner Peace

    Warning: If you have all, or even most, of these symptoms, please be advised that your condition of PEACE may be so far advanced as not to be curable. If you are exposed to anyone exhibiting several of these symptoms, remain exposed only at your own risk as this condition of PEACE is probably in its' infectious stage. * A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences. * An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment. * A loss of interest in judging other people. * A loss of interest in judging self. * A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others. * A loss of interest in conflict. * A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.) * Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation. * Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature. * Frequent attacks of smiling. * An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen. * An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it. ...maybe one day...working on it.
  4. Buddhism and taoism?

    for me, this is why i lean towards taoism more so than buddism...i like the fact that it's more relaxed....not a rigid religion.....doesn't mean i won't get into a debate though..
  5. Taoist Physical Exercise?

    try reading the book, "The Tao of Heath, Sex and Longevity" by Daniel Reid....there are several different examples of exercises

  9. Hello

    hello and welcome.
  10. I know very little about TMC, so I can't really say. I think medical practisioners in general would prescribe certain drugs, like marijuana, more often. I have an Uncle in Colorado who was recently perscribed medical marijuana for his prostate cancer. He says it helps with the nausea and lack of appetite caused by the radiation treatments. As far as heroin, cocaine...etc. I can't really see any medical benefits.

  13. low men

    Chris, We have a pretty open relationship. He might not always tell me immediately what's bothering him, but he will get to it. We had a serious talk last night actually. I believe I have found the root of his problem. He has been a little "off" all week and I could tell something was bothering him. He asked me if we could talk and of course I was all ears. He is always there for me when I need him, and I try like hell to be there for him too. He told me last night that reason he has been in a bad mood all week is because Mother's Day is coming up. Now, I've always known that his mother ran off when he was 2 years old and left him and his sister to be raised by his dad. He has always acted as if he didn't care to have anything to do with if he were indifferent about the situation. Last night he broke down and told me that he has always felt that he wasn't worth a shit because even his own mother couldn't love him. BINGO!!!! I think that has ALOT to do with his low libido...deep rooted resentment of women due to the fact that his mother left him!!! I hate that he feels this way, but I can kind of understand. I didnt' met my father until I was 16, so I know how it feels. When I was a kid, I always felt like I wasn't good enough because my dad left. After a few years of therapy, I have excepted the fact that he was the one who wasn't good enough. I mentioned how therapy helped me and he seemed open to the idea. Thanks for all the advice and support everyone. ~Jenn~
  14. Newbie confused by "see and not see"

    yes, it is quiet confusing...i am new to this myself and i'm having trouble understanding certain concepts too. Like "do by doing nothing"...happens to be what i am stuck on at the moment. These fokes are great and will respond with lots of suggested reading and insight.
  15. Test your psychic ability !

    Fringe, huh? Yeah, I'm a bit of a Fringe freak, what your saying is, that this quiz doesn't actually test your psychic's really just a math equation? Figures.
