I escaped 2 attempted rapes, each time I was in mortal fear, each time I was saved by incredibly fortunate circumstances, but the unspeakable shock I went though has marked me. I've become even more cautious since. The Bu...

Re: How to move past need for attention and acceptance

"I am hurt you don't recognize me".

Remove subjects and objects.

"...hurt... don't... recognize..."

One you feel pain.two you feel empty.
But not just Empty.
Empty from disturbance.

so do you know now what causes suffering?

First of all kamma is intention,so unless you intend on getting killed you are not creating any kamma.

Re: Open mindedness

Hi Cittasanto,

I think open mindness is keeping an open mind to other things besides our belief.It's not that we go just accepting everything.But atleast we can consider testing these various different theories.
