A few years ago a headline caught my attention. A model in NYC jumped out of her apartment to death.
I cannot remember details, however realizing that I recall the story again and again tells me that it definitely triggered some deep emotions. At that time I still read newspapers regularly, probably a few dozen articles a day, and I cannot recall many of them. What’s older than the news anyway - there is not much news in the news …
Yesterday I was having a beautiful conversation with my best friend about connecting to presence.
Recently a friend suggested I should join her for an AA meeting. For the ones who don't know, AA stands for Alcoholics Anonymous, and a meeting is their get-together in groups, sharing their experiences and stories.
Let me ask you: Are you happy? How often? If often, please share your "secret with" us. If not, what actually makes you unhappy?
Can you remember your childhood’s idea of your future - job, life, family wishes? Do you remember what career you dreamed of having when you were a kid?
I feel you. Fully. I have suffered so much in my life. Feeling alone, feeling rejected, not feeling loved. Developing a state considered in psychology a mental illness. Feeling isolated as a result. Feeling that there is no point in life.
Well it would be a bit spooky if I just looked at your photo .. I really don't know in advance who’s going to read my posts, promised. Nor do I look at 10 000’s of profile photos …. But what if I really just looked at your photo, accidentally … what would I have seen?
Maybe it’s just me? I remember very vividly, when I was a child, I wanted to get rid of my shadow. I was jumping high, and when I landed, my shadow landed with me. I turned and twisted myself, running fast, hiding behind a house corner … my shadow was present wherever I was.
I feel that in our society today success is measured by one's individual standing in a hierarchy of status and income. As I look through dictionary definitions of Success it is interesting to see that these do not reflect in any sense my personal definition of success. Neither "the attainment of wealth, position, honors" nor the "favorable" or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the accomplishment of one's goals really resonates with me.
When I ask you how you are feeling, don't reply with "Fine, Thank you." Because you are not! This makes me even more angry! How are you right now, how do you feel? I never want to hear you saying "fine" when I ask you. I ask you to get how you feel right now, because I really want to know, I really want you to express it. I can see you are not "fine“.
