    • Accepting Our Sadness/Melancholy (Last post by Kitsu Tails)
    • My mom actually had the best answer I recall. "Sometimes I just need a night to myself to cry." I had accidently stumbled in on my mother crying while watching Titanic. It's one of her favorite movies and she was always crying watching it. I never understood as a kid... But at some point just before Highschool I went with a friend to watch "Ever After" and I cried....I cried alot. It's not really a good cry movie like Titanic is...but the waterworks were turned on and refused to stop flowing. Afterwards...I felt really good. Relieved. Invigerated and very happy. Later in life I discovered other magical moments that involved crying for the sake of crying. For the sake of being sad. The sake of Grieving. The sake of letting those emotions free. It was the goal....To go into yourself and let it go. Its an important part of life :)
    • PTSD and Nightmares (Last post by Loudzoo)
    • I do not suffer from PTSD, or nightmares and am therefore unqualified to really comment. However, I have a psychologist friend who is has just opened a practice specialising in the treatment of PTSD using several techniques including lucid dreaming, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). Its early days for the use of lucid dreaming techniques for the treatment of PTSD but early research suggests the results are promising. Some techniques for developing skill in lucid dreaming involve the journaling of dreams - so such a technique might fit in well with the journaling your friend is already doing. His details are here: www.counselling-directory.org.uk/counsellors/justin-havens EMDR: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_movement_desen...ion_and_reprocessing Lucid Dreaming and PTSD: journals.ub.uni-heidelberg.de/index.php/...cle/viewFile/591/pdf I hope that helps in some way.
    • Chi? (Last post by Tarran)
    • Quote: Through the use of "compression breathing", the Jing is drawn into the marrow of the bones where it accumulates and develops strength and substance. I flubbed... I meant to say "condensing breathing" :P lol My bad ;) - Tarran ^_^
    • School of Life Short lessons (Last post by Vusuki)
    • History of Ideas- Religion. This might be interesting for some who see Jediism as a religion and are asked the question- what does it serve? What do all religions serve? Enjoy.
    • From time to time a poem (Last post by Reliah)
    • Sonnet 73 That time of year thou mayst in me behold When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang Upon those boughs which shake against the cold, Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang. In me thou see’st the twilight of such day As after sunset fadeth in the west; Which by and by black night doth take away, Death’s second self, that seals up all in rest. In me thou see’st the glowing of such fire, That on the ashes of his youth doth lie, As the deathbed whereon it must expire, Consumed with that which it was nourished by. This thou perceiv’st, which makes thy love more strong, To love that well which thou must leave ere long. -William Shakespeare
    • Robes (Last post by Kitsu Tails)
    • I see in that thread provided that waterproofing was desired....I wonder what would happen if regular Linen/cottan robes were sprayed with Aqua Armor..... [image]
    • Never forget (Last post by Adi Vas)
    • My aunt. She was an amazing person who brought so much love and light into the lives of other people, whether it was in the yoga/meditation classes she taught here in the United States or in her charity work helping build schools in East Africa. I will spend the rest of my life trying to love all living beings as she did, and be the kind of positive force that she was. She was my first spiritual mentor, and a surrogate mother to me all my life, but especially in adulthood. She struggled with many of the things that I struggle with now, like anxiety and depression, and taught me much about how to live with those things. In a few days it will have been a full year since her passing, and I still miss her dearly.
    • Circuitry and Reality (Last post by Adder)
    • I still prefer the fluid flow approach I think. I reckon its the capacity of local flows to represent distinct structures within larger flows... which of course exist in levels up to the whole system layout itself which I'd use external (boundary) interactions to define the limits of. It gives the whole system a depth for complexity which I can translate more easily into perception.
    • Jedi Funerals (Last post by den385)
    • I hope that by the time I die I'll be 100 y.o. and that's enough time for Jedi Way to become at least a little established. And I hope that there will be people who will value giving me a right funeral. Under these 2 assumptions, I'd like my body to be burned on the open fire (although this must stink, I don't know how vikings tolerated this and how Luke was supposed to tolerate open-fire cremation of his father's body). The ashes shot into space and some little sign that I lived on the Earth to remain. If I am to earn any honor, than near the place where I earn it, a small sign. There was a beautiful fantasy rite in franchise, for commemorating Jedi. There was some place where, with each deceased Jedi, one firefly was let out. And they formed a stream. A giant lightsaber, in a way. Of course, there is so much to be done to deserve that sort of commemoration. P.S. Dissolving the body and leaving just a robe is a fine way, but I doubt it'll be realistic in about 10K years, with current pace of evolution :)
    • The 'Naked Rambler' - question on freedoms (Last post by Cyan Sarden)
    • Naked hiking has been in the news here again and again. I'm all for it. I certainly don't find it offensive. Hiking and nudity go together well - just like bathing and nudity. You're in nature in your natural state - makes perfect sense. If people can't bear seeing a naked human being, there's always the option of looking the other way. Probably wouldn't do it myself though. but there are lots of things I wouldn't do but don't mind if other people do them.
    • Saw a dead baby today... (Last post by Cyan Sarden)
    • Quote: Quote: Some 17'000 refugees came in this year - 2/3 of them were moved back to their countries of origin within a few months of seeking asylum. So we maybe took 5000-6000 refugees this year. And our right-wing parties are claiming we're being overrun. They're now demanding that the army be used to lock down the borders. I just fail to see how one can be so completely and utterly devoid of decency and compassion. Are you sure you don't live in the US? :dry: You'd be surprised just how many parallels the current political landscapes of the US and Switzerland have :-/
