To fullfill my life long goal of finding the truth about life and how i fit into it.
I will practice moderation in everything i do
I will practice mindfullness daily
I will patiently wait for wisdom instead of flooding my mind with unnessesary questions and borrowed ideas.
I will not accumulate unnecessary and worthless possesions.

I shouldn't even be writing on such a deep subject because I'm pretty tired all around right now, but wanted to say I was just sharing what came to my mind when I read your post. sorry if it seemed short I've been tired, but I'll share a bit as well, just what I believe. Just my opinion from my experience, can be different for different folks. But first I believe we suffer because we feel. We are hurting and that is why we suffer. Maybe what we all suffer from ulitmately is one thing, a broken heart. but we suffer because we've been hurting. and that is what the healing journey to me is about. healing our hurting hearts.
secondly I know that as well as having feelings we have consciousness. I know that my consciousness is above my feelings, transcends them, and even guides me thought them. In that way my consciousness is quite actually untouched by my feelings. It feels always fine, peaceful, ever present. My feelings, however, are temporary. Even though the suffering seems permanent, I know it's not because I have experienced moments without it. - Thirdly I believe that consciousness is in all things. Surely in all sentient (emotional) beings. And because of that, and also because we feel, I believe that we matter. In fact I know we do. I cannot prove it. It's just my experience. But I believe that I matter, that you matter, and that even that little ladybug matters. I do. And most of all, they all matter to me. We all matter to me. And I am just sure, that if we all can matter to me, then we all must matter to some Consciousness greater than us (dare I call it Love) that we are all part of, and that exists somehow even in the movement and order of the orbit of the moon you saw through your new telescope.
oh, I need some sleep, but that's my little ramble for tonite. if you take anything from it, remember that you matter. you truly do.
and ps/btw, as I thought more about your post today I just wanted to say that yes, I hear you. the chaos, in the world, in our bodies, minds, in the universe, we can in small glimmers think we "get" it, but it is all such a mystery. consciousness. that is what I think of next.
gosh, Panagiotis, that was really beautiful. thanks for sharing. it makes me think of a tiny ladybug I watched today when I was sitting in the grass. so small. the world, the blade of grass, so big to her.
it's all relative, isn't it? just like einstein said.
I came across this quote today and thought you might enjoy it! here it is...
I recently read somewhere, “Earth is not sick. She is pregnant.” This makes sense to me. Repeatedly, we are experiencing periods of contraction in consciousness in which all of our shadow comes up for review, followed by periods of relaxation in which we integrate what we have learned. These contractions are becoming increasingly intense. They are coming increasingly close together. - Lucia Rene
Hope you're having a good one today in the southern hem!
Hi Panagiotis! Nice to hear from you today. And I wish you well with all, my sister has her own business too and I know how much extra pressure it can be. and with the expansion/contractions of a personal path, takes alot of strength and courage and energy too. Be gentle with yourself, as best you can with alll the other stuff. :)
Wishing you hugs and love...
and snow! wish I could send you some of that as well. lol/ We got our first big fall here in Colorado just last night!!
