Hi Im new here. Ive experiences many lives. i will writ about them later. :)
An interesting thing happened to me yesterday, I was driving to Beaverton with Meeper Kitten to get some really good Sushi and I gradually starting feeling more and more like it was hard to breath. The air became muggy, humid, and almost unbreathable, while in my mind swirled thoughts about all the things that I've never been happy about. It was like I was being forced to think about all the things that would make me lose hope and just want to give up the way I've seen many people do. I mean it could just be that it was a really bad day for greenhouse gasses or some such, but to me it felt as if there was not enough air to breathe. The thoughts that accompanied this feeling are highly unusual since I don't tend to take on a defeatist attitude about anything. Ask anybody I know and they will generally say that I have my ups and downs but never do I just give in and stop trying. However, that being said this whole turn of events has prompted me to restart my exercises in the Five Rings study. Assuming I can come to the complete physical awareness that I once had I might be able to shun this stupid stigma and hopefully keep it from happening again. Another thing that I would like to get into is Ancient Taoist Magic. I've seen it in books, movies and heard a great deal about it's practices and how effective it can be. I just wish that there was more info on it to look into. If anyone knows anything about it or perhaps a good book or three on the subject please let me know, it feels as if I should already know it and it feels vastly familiar to me, I just can't localize it long enough to draw a memory. Also, if anyone experienced anything similar to what I felt yesterday, (Monday, March 8) than please also let me know. I'd really like to see if it's just me or is this something that is spreading throughout the entire populace of this world...
Hi, Meeper_Kitten pointed me to this community. I checked it out and it seems interesting enough. Where to begin? I'm as human as I care to be I guess. I have much vested interested in the Draconic nature of myself and all things and am always entertaining discussions in those areas. I do a lot of traveling between planes, sort of a planar nomad if you will. I've seen things and been places that I imagine few others have, or have they? I guess I'll find out. Anyways, I hope that I'll get to learn more about everyone as I hope everyone would like to learn and know about me. See you then.
Good evening to all. I thought since I decided to join the community I'd better introduce myself:
All in all: I am me, whatever that is.
Everything and nothing at once, as we all are, which, although poorly put, has been the best way for me to describe it in the english tongue, in which I think of as crude and far too in-specific for my tastes.
Mostly I am just a lost and lonely soul that has wandered to and fro for seemingly an eternity, although in comparison with all things, it has only been a short time....
I've been met with skepticism (even from myself), scrutiny, and even downright cruelty when sharing memories et morte, from past lives. Once being subjected to the whims of a man I KNEW from a life, and who played mind games with me, driving me to the brink of insanity.... He'll deny it now, say it was me playing games with him, but I will not forget the day he admitted to me what he had done.... And then another of my friends who was sweet to my face and then called me crazy behind my back... *sighs in remembrance* I hope that such repetitions will not occur, least of all here.
A formal title of mine is The Lady Sorrow, and to it I keep, for it is still a true title.
I shed my tears in the night and think of the sea....
I am not without my share of sins. I have done wrong and lamented for it, but I rejoice in having found new beliefs which have consoled me. May I continue to strive forward and not falter. May we all learn and grow to become the one thing our hearts ultimately ache for: to be whole again....
Hey there. Just a question out of curiosity.
Does anyone here concern themselves with spirits? I’m not referring to dead people or anything, really. I mean...like, spirit guides and such. It's more like...people from your past life who, say, are present inside your mind sometimes. And if you don't associate with them, does anyone have any opinions on the subject or anything relative to it? (I just say "spirits" because it's a bit of a personal habit.)
Responses greatly appreciated. I'm just wondering if anyone knows what I'm talking about. ^_^
Hello from Michigan
My name is Chris, and I have always belived in the "un-real." Last year, during my first year of college, I realized that the un-real was more real than I had ever believed. In that time, I have remembered images I have seen my whole life. I believe in my most recent life I was a sorcerer of types during the middle ages in Europe, possibly present day germany. That is the most clear one anyway.
I believe that I have been human in most, if not all, of my lives.
The question I pose to the community is how to deal with past lives issues and destiny. I believe that in every live, I have been given a choice. A choice between happiness through myself, and happiness through relationships. Everyday I feel the pull of my past lives pulling me towards being alone, independant of the rest of society. It feels as though I have never even made a choice, it was simple logic to rely on myself.
This life has proved otherwise. No matter what, I keep screwing up relationships (both friendship and romantic). However, this society is not as accessible to hermits as previous societies have been. How do we cope with new societies?
I feel so... out of my element. I would give anything to go back to my last life, to be happily alone.
If anyone has any suggestions, please post.
