He died last year and his sister died a few months ago so I’m kittieless atm=/ the poor wee thing!
I just love cats they are adorable when young and just too crafty when older! What’s your kitties names?
Thank you. We have something similar here and I bet it gave you some memories:)
I’m 15 minutes from the beach or beaches and we have small mountains close and larger ones not too far away.
We have a short summer, so we take in as much as we can because it gets cold in the fall.
I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too:)
Down south they don’t have snow, but the heat will cook you..lol.
I like where I’m at and I travel a bit just to remind myself.
There’s no place like home..lol…some days.
Well he still blares his music, but there have been no more complaints.
As for this exercise… This is the first I have heard of it… at least in the context of your life’s purpose.
I have heard of people doing to find out what is important to you. But that doesn’t mean that it is the purpose of your life.
Yes, the whole book is an instruction manual on how to love yourself. (Not in any wrong way, in all the right way.) It’s brilliant. The only major problem is that it comes from “New Though” ideas, which is like “The Secret” , and her primary tool for psychic change is saying affirmations. But — I think it is effective and brilliant, if you can get past such stumbling blocks.
“Self-love” is the cure, which is deeper than self-esteem. Self-esteem makes people arrogant, selfish and narcissistic. :) But there is a cure to self-criticism and feeling unworthy, and that is self-love (self-compassion.) Or so saith the book I like.
It’s actually not a bad life being a zombie. It’s just there’s nothing to do, everything is too perfect, you just shuffle around being a perfect zombie.
Here’s a thing I felt like mentioning before when you asked about procrastination, because it is so accurate in how you criticize yourself in other ways:

“I Am Unworthy” creates procrastination. If one of my inner belief systems or thought patterns is, “I am unworthy,” then one of my outer effects will probably be procrastination. After all, procrastination is one way to keep us from getting where we say we want to go. Most people who procrastinate will spend a lot of time and energy berating themselves for procrastinating. They will call themselves lazy and generally will make themselves out to feel they are “bad persons.”
However I doubt that they can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that we cannot be a free thinking race.
Even if they prove that out thoughts are just a reaction to outside forces. That doesn’t prove that we cannot think for our selves.
Ultimately what these people are trying to do is say that we don’t have free will. And if we didn’t have free will we couldn’t chose to love someone, or drive the speed limit, murder our neighbour, etc.
Any previous research on this that I have seen has been aimed at genetics… These studies were saying that we did what we did, because that is how our DNA is programmed. And every study on it has been debunked.
I probably sound like I’m rambling… I hope this helps.
Even if it’s all true, and how we act is all based on “beliefs”… are you really going to let it bother you that much? I mean if that’s the case you may as well take up gambeling or something. Something that is random and unpredictable.
I’m saying that life wouldn’t even be possible unless all those crazy things happened. Beliefs or whatever, they all just kinda come from nothing. When you boil it all down though, what we should believe is just the truth, that we can’t control the universe, but we do have some control, and we should take advantage of that control.
So if you wish to embrace your beliefs then great, and if you deny then, then that’s also your choice…
Think of it like this then, and yeah this is all true…
We are made from carbon, oxygen, and h20. The carbon and oxygen are made from dead stars, stars that would have lived billions of years ago. And even our own sun, was created from the same supernova explosion that lead to us being created. All life on earth would not be possible without a star exploding in a massive cosmic explosion billions of years ago.
It’s somewhat true, I mean the brain is pretty complex and even I can barely grasp some of the concepts. So… yeah there might be some connections to us not being able to choose, but then again if you look at the whole aspect of the universe then really we are absolutly powerless. As humans we have the capacity to bring forth change, but we likely won’t ever reach that pinicle. We, individually, are nothing.
