Re: How to move past need for attention and acceptance

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

But not just Empty.
Empty from disturbance.

so do you know now what causes suffering?

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.
