  1. I will respond from my perspective because of simple similarities. I will say there IS good in people. It is as simple as things you might do in your daily life to bring it about. Kindness by my mother: we went to have soup and salad at dinner and she thought about our neighbor who is 90. She lives alone and her husband passed away this passed year. My mother was kind enough to think about asking her to join us on our next outing and bought her a big quart of soup for her. It made me feel goodness toward my mother who usually grates on my nerves because her stance is one of constant perspective that the world is happening in her mind and that is therefor the way the world need to drag religion into it but her stance is that her way is THE ONLY way... I felt goodness taking the soup and dropping it off at this old lady's door. So maybe you can agree with me that there IS some goodness by even this small example I have shared above. There IS goodness. I could make a list of a lot of goodness if it would make you feel better. Goodness in my life and my encounters. It is easy to be bombarded by images that don't align with your own and if it is water over the damn by now---stop thinking about it. It is not happening any longer. If you have problems at the store that sells booze...certainly there are other places of employment that will give you some peace. be the change you want to see in the world is a great simple quote by Gandhi. Show me some goodness in YOU wishing you better days
  2. Here goes nothing..

    I have a nice song for you and anyone else as well. its a real risk for me to post it at this forum because I mean nothing insincere. I think it is beautiful and brings tears to my eyes when I hear it. I heard it with my son the other morning and I could not hold them back and I grabbed his leg and squeezed his kneecap. music can be helpful at times.other times no. its artist: Logic and ft. alessia cara and Khalid ....I don't want to be alive ( I think that is title) good night shamdan
  3. Here goes nothing..

    shamdan- I can relate with you very well. My best advise and I hope that I am allowed as another forum dweller to make suggestions. what works for me: notice moments where things are ok. and keep noticing. another strange phenomenon for me was realizing how quickly plants perk up with water! So I am thinking how crucial water drinking is! sounds trivial.. in difficult depression. hoping the best for you

  5. hello intro

    YW- which movement did you listen to?
  6. hello intro

    thank you.
  7. I do not think I ever started in the correct box. and not to be mean or rude....I am not so sure when it says we can help...just what exactly will take place. call me a skeptic. so first hello and maybe its ok post a little pick me up from a few very down days. work is bizarre and people are cheap as hell while I work my ass off....details later music can be soothing and at times it is just background noise. tuned into this one yesterday..... you will have to search for it yourself because I do not do so well on computers. it was classical harmonica virtuoso Bonfiglio-Villa Lobos Harmonica concerto- what I like about it. I had no idea there was such a thing in music with harmonica and it is so light and peppy. the video I pulled up is images of maybe some historic buildings in Europe....similar to Sistine chapel but no... Germany maybe.... but joyful. I posted it some other forum but no one has anything that appeals to me much. something fun for you too(anyone who cares to look it up and listen) let me know if you like it .

  10. Does the Pain in the World disturb you?

    most movies are little interest to me. too, although one documentary recent I do not know why I like it so- on pygmies in the congo. I guess because they live primitive. by primitive I mean with no electricity and plumbing and big box stores. no mortgage bills. they are full of superstitions like not being under the jungle leaves in a rain storm and lots of drumming and dancing for every reason possible. the man filming and learning about them made a statement about how they could identify over 3000 plants, edibles, animals, insects. etc. what do they know about the pain in the world I couldn't say... but during the documentary one guide was taking the visitor someplace and was bitten by a snake. he became worried that this would be some superstitious thing and would stop the journey. the pygmy man knew to put on tourniquet on lower leg and then go into the jungle and machete some bark and leaves to draw the poison. they as a group have removed themselves from the world so to speak. or maybe they never came out into the civilized world but seem very advanced to me. not creating suffering for others nor worrying about it like they need to solve the worlds problems by converting people into a variety of beliefs like I see some religions do creating more havoc.imo..just living their lives as tribal people. eventually one of the pygmies came to tell the visitor that a very dark man with a machine gun was spying on them.....and he fled through the night in fear of being killed as he had to bribe his way with his filming equipment into the country at whatever entry point. there is real suffering in the world. disease, famine, pow's, genocide....I don't think god is to blame to end suffering.... I do not have answers. I am removed from most news of the world. I do feel sadness over some of my personal journey thus far on the planet and my moods and life circumstances. I feel sensitive at times but at other times I do not feel sensitive. I feel responsible for turmoil in my mind and body though. I admire plenty of people. I think some that I might admire would be doctors without borders or something like that.....successful doctors who go to foreign countries to operate on cleft palates or cataracts....making a real difference. just the same as knocking on a neighbors door and offering them a lemon pie after knee surgery.
  11. Being a recluse

    there is nothing wrong with recluse. some people have to do that to replenish themselves.
  12. Honestly! Have you ever turned to alcohol?

    oil and water do not mix same for depression an alcohol. alcohol is a depressant. not much of a story just my experiences booze makes me sad

I was with my nephew. he was happy to see the night sky as was myself in a dark field of a nursery picking up my son at his girldfriends home. an onminipotent god is not going to whisper sweet nothings to someone else that can whisper them to me in lingo like the dingo ate my baby..meryl strep and advertise about don't wait for the drawing. yeah. spIRITS pst. let her have the surfboard
