Lol, I think I sounded like an **** in my previous rant, but it doesn't matter anyways...

Now, serious question Jed; If you really wanted, could you use your "T/R powers" to fly using nothing more than your body? Flying is just an example, the question can apply to anything that defies physics, like live without eating, swimming on lava without dying etc...

I ask this cuz once someone asked Nis the weather in NY in a determined day, and Nis said he could be able to know it with enough training...

Why on earth would you ask? Please give me your reasons, and curiosity doesn't fly with me...

but maybe with enough training...which would be a complete waste of time and effort.

I suggest you find out who/what you are and stop screwing around.

Love ya, Jed.

Now, I'm really stoping screwing around...


... and not only that, I'm mad as ****. I couldn't hate more the fact that I am a weak human being and that I am condemmed to live in this place, in this world... I can't bare the fact that a person's life may be ruined by the minor of details, no matter how much motivation the person has...

...those who suffer from chronic conditions know how sucky life can be, being a slave to you own's body weaknesses and hoping that someday medicine may find a cure for your condition.

I just don't want to depend on medicine anymore... I wanna be the lord of my own life and be the commander of my body.

Right now I lost the last of my ambitions related to this physical world, there's nothing more in this world that may be of my interest; if I could, I would just dwell into a cave like the monks used to do before and dedicate myself to liberation

So, I have 2 questions for you Jed:

I want to get liberated not because I seek truth, but because I don't wanna be limited by the laws of this cartesian world anymore... It's not like I want to control reality so that I can win on casinos or become a famous star, yes that would be nice, but for me, just the humble hability of having control over my body, making it cooperate with me and not needing to eat or consume vitamins or minerals to survive healthy and well would be enough. Do you think this is a silly reason to persue t/r, even if this is the thing I want the most in my life, to the point of having no desire other than this?

I've thought of a method of archieving what I desire; it's similar to what Nis did with the 'I AM" method, but instead of concentrating on "I AM", I will concentrate on the fact that I am an all powerful god 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. What do you think, can this method work?

Sounds to me like a plan... for you. I suggest you just start small. First I think you need to find this all-powerful-god. Then spend you time immersed in that.

As an all-powerful-god try changing something. Start small... and please let me know how it goes.

What kind of ''powers'' do you expect this god to possess? How will you know ''it'' when you find it?

Talk later,

Love ya, Jed.

I don't think I can find this god right now, so I will start with just a mental image of this god in my head, waiting for the real thing to come...  I think I will know it's the real thing when he comes...

and the powers I want it to have? Just the humble hability to have control over my body would be enough, but if I could desire more; I would just change into another universe, because this corporate/relationships based world is just dead.

Thanks for the anwers btw, Jed.

Some days ago I started meditating; I am starting to perceive how mad I am and how other people around me are... During my sittings, sometimes I perceive the inquietude of my mind, the little OCD attacks, how my mind has become a huge monster of compulsions and OCD, and how much energy it sucks from me...

I am starting to perceive how  mad my mother is too; no matter what you say to her, no matter what happens, she always has a negative comment about anything. Being used to living with her, I usually didn't even perceive this mad personality of her that much, but, after sitting, I get mad everytime she opens her mouth to say anything...

Somehow, I'm starting to think my long time depression may be caused by her and maybe moving out could be a fix for my shitty life and general nihilistic vision of the world. Do you think I should move out or just meditate/do autolisys until her negativity stops affecting me?

I get it, thanks. Besides, I'm already an adult and I should face this huge, scary world by myself... Can't be a mamma boy forever...

I've been doing some fasting lately and that helped me realize that we, humans, are programmed towards suffering, not only by society, but by our own genetic baggage.

When I was not eating, true hunger would hit me about 18 hours after not eating anything, but false hunger, i.e wanting to eat so that you can escape the inner suffering, would come much faster. I wold not surrender to false hunger(emotional eating) and, by consequence, I would become depressed... then I would decide to do some exercise to liberate endorphins and lift my mood, but after the endorphins weared off the sadness would come back... and then I would have to do something to escape the inner suffering again... and this is how everyone lives their lives, going from pleasure to pleasure so that they can escape the noise of suffering.

Some people might say that this doesn't happen to everyone and I am depressed, but, I strongly disagree with this; in my life, I'm not sure if I have ever encountered someone who is truly happy; I'm tired of hearing the supposed happy people say things like "I didn't party last weekend and I was so sad" or "I miss her, I'm so sad and empty", so, this means that even for people without addictions, who are sucessful and have many friends, the supposed happy people who take pride in saying they live happy lives, even for those people the law of inner suffering still applies; if they lost their friends or other of those things they would become miserable.

Even children and animals are bags of suffering like us...

Why is our natural state as humans a state of suffering? Is there a way to change this?
