concept of .....
http://innerpilgrimage.wordpress.com/2012/08/20/into-the-woods-yet-again got me thinking... lecturing again... oh well.
I went through that kind of a process. Abandoned the do as I say Christian stuff was on of my best concepts.
The line that got me through is in BB 3rd ed, pg46, Our own conception, however inadequate... god is just a concept, nothing more. It is all about belief, not what we believe. It is about the assurance of knowing we are right, correct, and rigidity to those beliefs that gets me through life for the first time.
I believe mathematics, physics, chemistry, evolution- why not a set of as yet unknown rules to get me through these food/ overeating issues. I need to plan my way through life in general. (prayer and mediation) This is the first time I have been through life. For today, now is all we have.
I learned to meditate well enough to be able to feel the vibration of the air in my ears, and not interpret it as sound. That is the separation of the physical and mind. I studies Buddhism, and became a book buddhist- know it only from books. I read others, Tolle, Brown, jon kabit-zinn, etc, all interesting conceptions. For some, we are reborn each day as we awake. but I digress.
Keep up the struggle, for this life is all that we have. It is the first time through so we are bound to make mistakes. In additions, there are many choices in life, and some are bound to put odd stresses on our mind and body. We are bound to get pulled off our pathway. Broken people get recycled.
