Re: How old are you?

Being born on an even decade, this should be a simple thing for me to calculate, and yet I often forget how old I am. Lets see, 1960 plus a few decades, it's 2017 but haven't had my birthday yet, carry the one... I am 56!

Re: The case against coffee (important)

Coffee is a wonderful natural way to help ease asthma symptoms, so I'm a fan.

Re: 2016 Olympics in Rio

I've enjoyed watching women's volleyball, tennis, and some swimming so far. Such heart displayed by the participants, very inspiring.

Because he is a classic narcissist (narcissistic personality disorder), and I would guess he is also a borderline (borderline personality disorder).

Re: What would you tell your younger self

I'd tell her to keep the wild wandering streak and to not fall into conformity, walk away from her career path and just travel, surf, meditate, explore. But how does one do so without a career which gives you the money to travel? I'm sincere in my question because I honestly can't see myself in a 9...

Re: Parents beat and disown 19-year-old for being gay

Makes me sad that nothing has changed in the 36 years since I came out. There's a lot more window dressing in the world, but heart to heart, person to person, we are still reviled by many.

Re: Probably nothing

Thanks for the kind replies, the hugs and the hearts, and the well wishes. My probably nothing CT scan is scheduled for Sept. 2nd. Whatever the results, I am okay. I am a combination of a crying baby and a tough old bird. I wonder what that makes me? Ahhh human! Wishing you peace, but also understa...

Re: Why every small moment of mindfulness counts?

Love the analogies, thanks for sharing them! Many times if I don't have enough time to focus on mindfulness for 20-30 minutes I'll skip it, time to rethink that.

Re: Backpain...

I had endless back pain and spasms for years, then a fella I know recommended a book to me, changed my life... but I'm very open to the mind body connection.

Re: What to do?

I can't quote a scripture to the effect, but don't see the need in letting any being suffer needlessly. Offer aid or comfort to anyone suffering is imperative... for me anyway. Others may choose to ignore it, and that is their choice, I cannot.

Re: Why one meal a day?

Two meals seems to be sufficient for moderate physical exertion throughout ones day, even when the two meals are before noon, in my experience. I've even gained weight this way. It is my great hope that this will work for me as well. Sometimes I cannot believe the amount of time and effort expended...
