908844 gemma : that's why most people say they're miserable
908845 aegis1 : Do most people say that?
908846 gemma : seems that way to me
908847 gemma : i meet very few people who are comfortable with themselves
908848 aegis1 : I feel the opposite from my scant exposure to social media.
908849 gemma : oh i don't do social media either
908850 gemma : i'm referring to some statistics i've come across
908851 aegis1 : Nor I really. I read some, but do not write.
908852 gemma : on happiness ... on increased levels of frustration/depression/anxiety etc.
908853 gemma : bits of news indicate such frustration
908854 gemma : it's like there's global identity issues they're calling it 'identity politics'
908855 aegis1 : Some frustration might be healthy.
908856 gemma : i'm not a big fan of emotions
908857 gemma : hola patricia!
908858 aegis1 : How do you avoid them?
908859 Patricia : Hola gemma
908860 gemma : i don't 'avoid'
908861 gemma : that would create more of a frustration if they're were one
908862 gemma : it would be like worrying about being worried
908863 gemma : there*
908864 gemma : it all comes down to how we identify ourselves i think
908865 aegis1 : I see your point. I guess I've never considered whether I Liked or Disliked emotions. Imagine conquering them like the Vulcans did in Sci-Fi. How would that be ?
908866 gemma : has to do with the illusion of opposites
908867 aegis1 : Well-stated. That is a good way of framing it.
908868 gemma : also, and i was talking to a younger person about this the other day,
908869 aegis1 : So much of our expression is thru emotion.
908870 gemma : well you've heard of the term 'emotional roller coaster' right?
908871 gemma : some people enjoy those ups and downs
908872 gemma : i don't
908873 gemma : desire drives people
908874 aegis1 : I think I understand. Many want stability instead.
908875 gemma : i wouldn't call it stability as much as a greater awareness
908876 gemma : emotions come and go
908877 aegis1 : Do you always know what you want ?
908878 gemma : i want one thing now
908880 aegis1 : I hope you achieve it ..
908881 gemma : thanks me too lol
908882 gemma : it's not achieved though
908883 aegis1 : Good that you chose something simple <ggg>
908884 gemma : it's revealed
908885 gemma : i believe we're all enlightened, we just don't know it
908886 gemma : some don't want to know it
908887 gemma : i guess it's about waking up
908888 aegis1 : The light is within all of us, if we learn to see it ?
908889 gemma : also the ego seems to be programmed to protect itself
908890 gemma : right, the 'light' of pure consciousness
908891 aegis1 : Pure?
908892 gemma : if you really ask the question: who/what am i?
908893 gemma : you'll experience an 'aha' moment
908894 gemma : pure as in that's all the 'i' is
908896 gemma : that sense of 'self' is actually not what people think it is
908897 gemma : it's not the body, not the thoughts, etc...
908898 aegis1 : Are you the only one who knows this ?
908899 gemma : i remember now that you were going to church one day when i was in here.
908900 gemma : i'm curious what you believe in
908901 aegis1 : yes. it seemed that was off-putting to you. But sok with me.
908902 gemma : no, most all spiritual traditions know this
908903 gemma : they call it different things
908904 gemma : nothing off-putting about a person going to church
908905 gemma : i'm sorry if you got that impression
908906 aegis1 : I consider myself a truth-seeker. I invite people to change my opinions and beliefs with evidence/argument/logic .
908907 gemma : spiritually speaking, there are two paths to the same goal i think
908908 gemma : one is through faith/devotion. the other is through self-enquiry
908909 aegis1 : It seemed you cooled to me after that. But perhaps I created the impression myself. Chat is so one-dimensional, esp with someone new.
908910 gemma : it is difficult in chat to get others - so much is missing in terms of tone, body language, etc.
908911 aegis1 : I always enjoy reading you; hence my Skype invite. Plz note my user in case you are ever interested.
908912 gemma : i realize i'm often misunderstood
908913 gemma : i sent you a invitation but you haven't accepted it yet
908914 aegis1 : "aren't we all" [misunderstood]
908915 gemma : no rush, just letting you know
908916 gemma : when language is involved, yes
908917 gemma : words can't express this stuff
908918 gemma : and words lead to all sorts of misunderstandings
908919 gemma : but language is a tool.
908920 aegis1 : sure. and the subject is 'personal' to invoke that mask yet again.
908921 gemma : it was funny, last week, i wrote an email to my brother
908922 gemma : previous emails he took a way other than i inteneded
908923 gemma : but he was driving and asked me to read him the last email i sent
908924 gemma : then, he understood.
908925 gemma : i think he was reading it in a 'tone' that he assumed
908926 gemma : if that makes sense
908927 aegis1 : Yes, perfect sense. Your 'tone' vs his.
908928 Char : buenas buenas
908929 gemma : buenas char, como estas?
908930 Char : todo bien
908931 Char : y vos?
908932 gemma : estoy feliz porque no trabajo hoy
908933 Char : jaja muy bien
908934 Char : yo trabajo, pero desde mi casa
908935 Char : eso me hace estar feliz tambien :)
908936 Char : de qué trabajas?
