But, it is coming from our subconscious and has not been examined to see if this is a real attack or coming from a previously laid down fear of harm to us. We see this in ‘knee jerk’ reactions, when a person mis-perceives an insult or attack! (A person is not reading the current situation correctly.) People are killed under these circumstances.

Freedompath replies on Mar 5, 2020:
@JeffMesser I try and speak of what I know from my experience and study. If you are attempting to prove that Indians and Hinduism is superior, i believe you are on the wrong path! I believe that every culture has its brilliant people as a matter of fact my last Psychiatrist was Indian. And I fell in lock step with her. On a side note, she was building a retirement home back in India, but, upon returning she decided she could not live where there was more corruption than here in the states (her report not mine). This same person told me about one of her friends who came from India with nothing and became a multimillionaire, and yet refused to offer health insurance to her motel staff! (She owned many.) There are things that I believe that are very useful from your culture, the same as from other cultures. Some of the people are fine human beings, but like everywhere else there are people from your culture who do not care! I can’t speak for others here, but I take what makes good sense to me wherever I find it and that which promotes mankind to a higher calling and I ignore the rest! At least here in this Country we are not FORCED to believe something. On another side note...a couple of years ago, I was moving and had collected a large number of ceramic floor tiles and was going to donate them, as I had to remove them in a hurry because the new owners to my condo had moved in already! I was staying in a motel own by Indians and they were in the process of repairing a room of broken tiles. I mentioned that I had these tiles and could they use them and they said sure. I hauled 2 loads of those tiles, from a distance of 20 miles away, loaded them up myself (78 yrs old) and that younger Indian couple never offered me even a cup of coffee, much less a small discount for my weeks lodging! I study every experience that comes across my path...actually I have done that my entire life! So when you are speaking about who/what is superior, know that others have knowledge that may be unknown to you. And...yet none of that is superior to anyone else! We do know that there are ‘gifted’ people and they elicit our deepest respect, but they too are not ‘superior!’ You can take this with a grain of salt...or however!
So help me, if the Supreme Court actually strikes down Roe vs. Wade I don't know what I'll do.

I must confess here, that I have had real struggles to overcome with my own 5 children. I caused them real hurt out of my brokenness, and they needed to heal too! But, we are on a level playing field now and it all seems fine! Yes...we are sisters! I have lots of them and you can too!

@OnTheInside Over my life time, I have been exposed to and somewhat part of...religious leanings, but...this point in time seems different! The ‘leaning’ into religion has taken on a whole new meaning! My sudden thought is...combining politics with religion...and it is not a good thing!

@OwlInASack it seems to me Jeff is confused as to what his ‘real’ purpose is with these exchanges. His sub-conscience overrides his surface thinking! This produces conflicts for him, that he appears to not be aware of at this junction. He is driven by his indoctrination (self imposed or otherwise). That is what I see! We need no defense (for self or with others) when our subconscious and thinking are integrated.

Freedompath replies on Mar 4, 2020:
@JeffMesser if I can say just one thing here...it appears (solely my opinion) to me that you are ‘leaning on’ all the ‘rules’ that you have learned from your religion. And instead of just ‘living’ them, you are busy justifying them to (us) around you! I am not looking for a Guru and I doubt (from my experience here), that others here are, either. So are you trying to force something on us, OR are you trying to have other people understand you? And...if you are trying to have us understand you...it appears to me that your psyche much be ‘strained’ through your religion first! How can I understand you, in that way? I understand how religion works, but I can never understand YOUR religion through your psyche (Nor you mine)!!! If I studied Hindi, I would strain it through my own psyche...my perceptions, not yours! So it would be changed....UNLESS, you are ‘living’ out your religion by MEMORIZING the passages and rules? You sound like a very smart man...be happy with that and the way that you have chosen to live your life. And, if you are not happy with IT, or even parts...then you are free to change that to something that fits you! How simple can that be? You sound like you are wrapped up in yards and yards of ‘fishnets!’ My best!
Such truth in a meme!
demifeministgal comments on Mar 2, 2020:
ughhh yes.... so sick of toxic fam members undoing any progress made... it is like I go 1 step forward and those fckers hurl me 2 steps back :/
Freedompath replies on Mar 4, 2020:
@demifeministgal most parents cannot give their children the gift of believing in dreams because they fear it is impossible and their child will just be disappointed! But, everything we want can be gotten in increments, nothing is gotten in one swift leap. First you define your dream, that comes from a nudging inside us. Then we do big and little things that centers around our desires. We can’t know all the ways that will help bring our dream to full reality, ahead of time. But sooner than later, our courage is such, that we take a big leap of faith toward what makes us happy...that which gives us something extra that we are missing! Live in each moment and gain all that is found there, but hold your dream and how it could work out, on your ‘back burner,’ simmering. It took me many years to follow my own dream of being in the West and mostly in the desert. And it did come about with long increments in between. And, even when I had my situation pretty much nailed down, I was faced with major resistance from many sides. But, by that time I was strong enough to know that others, would need to deal with my decision as best they could...I was not responsible for their loss or hurts! The best part is, everything is really better than before...and everyone may have discovered the same as I...that people can love and be close to others, at a long distance! Dependence or neediness is not love...that is born out of fear. Fear of loss, I would say. So don’t give up your dreams...just head in their direction and the rest will work out as you go!😍

Freedompath replies on Mar 3, 2020:
@JeffMesser Why do you ‘withstand their ignorance?’ Your job(my job), is to accept where each person is in his development and be at peace with that...how would you like for someone to try and ‘hammer’ his/her knowledge of anything into you? It has been a long time since I was exposed to the Hindu religion, and I would not be opposed to your sharing and explaining your perspective on your Hindu beliefs. But, the way you are presenting it now, is confrontational...then you seem to be offended because we can’t get where you are coming from. And, there is a chance many still want get you...no matter how well you present your position. But, if you want to be heard, then you must accept that you will be challenged by other ideas (that sometimes sting). This can’t be personal, we don’t even know you! And my last point is...there are far more smart people on this site than me, but I have found that it is best to start with one or two simple ideas and let them play out! We have nothing but time! I believe everyone benefits more, as we must write our ideas down and frankly I don’t have the time to read and comprehend a lot of the very long post! But, like I said...I am not one of the quick minds here. And, even I cannot agree with certain ways of operating in this world, and I may challenge them, but I will respect that other person to be what he wants! Even if I must do that through ‘gritted teeth!’ Making over another person in my image...is not my right and visa versa!

@JeffMesser But, he and no one else wants to become a replica of you. Just claim your position and stop trying to justify it. If we are satisfied with what we want our life to look like (and it is honorable), we never need to justify that. The whole world can disagree with IT and IT can still be where we stand. How can what we hold dear, be proven to anyone else? Relax, in who you are and leave it alone...when we try and prove things to others, they will always come up with other options against what we believe...maybe it’s human nature? We feel a little safer with people who hold our specific ideas! However, when you dig a little deeper we are all different! Just be...no need to keep defending, protecting, justifying...hold IT close and be IT...
