You are going WAAAAAAAY off the deep end and projecting ideas into this thread that NO ONE and I mean NO ONE even REMOTLEY said or even eluded to.
"feelings don't matter" REALLY???
Is that what you took away from this?
Is that what you honestly believe the OP is trying to promote?
I would sit here and try to break it down for you but something tells me you are going to take my words and twist them into something even MORE
rediculous than you did with the OP.
This mindset that the OP is referring to, detatching yourself from your EGO isn't for everyone.
ALOT of people believe they are one and the same. You = your ego.
You= your emotions.
If this is your thinking then this thread most definately is not for you and any attempt whatsoever to explain it will only fall on deaf ears.
If you believe in "Right" and "Wrong"
If you beleive in "GooD' and "EEEEEVIL" or "BAD"
Then you are not going to be able to make heads nor tails of this way of thinking.
If YOU get offended when someone calls you a fat ass then you are not going to get much out of a thread about ego.
If you are able to understand that YOU are not a fat ass but the bio suit that you are wearing IS then you may get something out of this thread.
If you are able to separate YOU from your bio suit,
If you are able to separate YOU from your Emotions
If you are able to separate YOU from your Name, clothes, car, family, friends, job title, bank account, awards won, time served, and every other
title,designation,label, and box that this world uses to define the REAL you then you obviously understand what we are talking about here so feel free
to jump on in.
I honestly don't think that it's wrong for a person to have their feelings hurt by such language,
Who in the WORLD said anything about it being "wrong" to have your feeling hurt?
You are in good company.
There have been several people in this thread who have totally made up words that were never spoken.
The great thing about communication online is that there is a record of the entire conversation which can prove such.
it is a natural reaction
Yes, as is screaming and running when you see a bear in the woods, which will.............GET YOU KILLED!!!
There is a reason we don't cry, and slap, and hit, someone who throws sand at us in the sandbox anymore.
Hopefully (most of us) have learned to control their "natural reactions" by now.
Prisons are full of people who couldn't control their "natural reaction"
This world is the way it is because of "natural reactions"
Fear is a "natural reaction" and it has been used to control humanity for long enough now.
It is time we conqured our "natural reactions" and make them serve us rather than US serving THEM.
If none of this makes any sense to you and you feel inclined to chalk it up as some "New Age hocus Pocus" then you are going to have to take it up
with Socrates,Plato,Jung, and a host of other "New Age Hippies".
Don't take it up with me, I didn't invent nor create nor discover this new age mumbo jumbo.
If you don't "get it" you weren't meant to just yet.
