Wow guys, this is fascinating. I have some concept of taoist techniques and a basic understanding of chi and chakras. I can even harness chi to a limited extent from self study of martial arts but much of this is new to me. I’ve never experienced anything even close to what is being discussed here.
For what I want to say I’m going to give you an idea of where I am in my life. Up till age 30 my life was very ugly and I was a very dark soul. Around age 30 however I started undergoing an awakening and my life started becoming beautiful. I’m still going through this process and its to the point now that I tear up almost daily, sometimes many times, from a combination of a connection I feel with other life and a longing for greater connection. Certain thoughts or even a few songs do it almost every time. I’ve kinda thought maybe my serotonin levels are exceptionally high. It’s kinda like being on ecstasy but it has nothing to do with drugs, I’ve been clean for these last 3 years.
About a year after this started I truly connected with a woman for the first time in my life. We had been together a few years prior but there was no connection, we fought like hell, and I was kinda relived when it was over. Now I have this longing to connect even deeper and was struck by the talk of a need to connect with another energy. I feel this very strongly even though we have shared practically everything and spend almost all of our free time together.
I know that some part of this is just the psychological need to bond but I’ve felt it’s something more. Anyway I’m definitely buying the book you speak of in a week or two after my girlfriend has minor surgery next week. Any thoughts would be appreciated also.
None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked in here with you.. YOU'RE LOCKED IN HERE WITH ME!
