Color RE:I need help with something personal going and looking for spiritual answers

That is just how I write things. I do understand that I can be a little sensitive to my environment only because I don't understand it and I don't understand the people around me.

I didn't ask those questions because I felt attacked. I asked those questions because I wanted to understand why I was being asked those questions. I understand why now. I am not going to be asking anymore questions unless I feel I need to.

No, people aren't reflecting something within myself. I don't believe that I lack self-love. I truly believe in my heart that I love myself more than anyone else does. I don't feel any negativity towards myself. I just don't understand my surroundings because I am Autistic.

I already got it checked out. I am not on the spectrum as I was diagnosed as having Autism.

I never thought once that anyone's responses on here were attacks. I wasn't talking about any of you on this site. I was talking about my experiences with people over time. I understand that everyone here is being helpful. Thank you everyone for your responses.

I just think people don't get what I am asking and I am not asking the wrong questions. I know what I want and I feel like I am being misunderstood.

Yes, that is true I prefer to ignore the people around me and I am focus on myself most of the time and not other people. I understand that now that they can perceive that in my demeanor. I will take what you said into consideration and I will check the channel out.

I think so. I think there is a little bit of that going on. I am not sure exactly. I think that I pick up on other people's pain and I absorb it. I don't know what to do with it and I feel like I carry extra baggage. Sometimes I carry too much and then I get emotional. Sometimes I feel like I have to feed off of it just to survive.

In result, I turn inward and then I shutdown and the sometimes life can be unbearable just because I carry that extra baggage.

Spiritually, this is you creating your own perceptual reality. In Sanskrit it's known as 'Ahamkara' or the 'I of invented things'. According to the philosophy/religion of the Indus valley all perceptions are subjective/'invented', in the case of Ahamkara they are 'invented' by the Chitta or 'Lower Mind'. In very simple terms, your reality is defined by your perceptions, your perceptions are defined by your beliefs and your beliefs are defined by your definitions. You define it as 'attack' and that is what it is in your reality, regardless of any intentions they may have to the contrary. Maybe it's simply non-agreement.

You yourself are creating your own reality by defining it as an attack, when you could just as easily define it as a reason for introspection, or if you are one of those that believe "We are here to learn the lessons" then you could define it as a lesson to learn about yourself.

And you react accordingly?

What you're experiencing is a reactionary response to your own perceptions, and unless you're being more mindful (the Eightfold Path is a good read in this context) you are reacting. Again, you used the word 'hostile' and that is how you perceive their interaction with you but that is your choice, and seemingly you have little control over how you respond. You could just as easily respond by taking a good look at yourself first and foremost, and questioning the reasons you use the word 'hostile'.

You yourself are central to your experiences so you need to look at the part you play in this. If you're looking for Spiritual answers, this is how you create your own reality. This is the reality that you yourself have created. Where you go from here - or not is also your existential experience in whatever shape or form that takes. You need to be the changes you want to see, as Gandhi would tell you.

Theres this quote "the wise man/woman builds a house with the stones his/her enemies throws at him/her". The reason you're being verbally attacked might not matter so much as what you do with it. What are they really attacking? Is it you, or just an image you have of yourself?

Hmm. :)
Or are they attacking something that is in themselves they don't like?
(And haven't faced.)
I bet they were mean bullies as children, also. Grrrr.

Hey J,

Ok, good luck with that.

One of my friends, an administrator on a smaller forum, is also autistic, so he sometimes has trouble understanding the motivations of others and he frequently misunderstands them as a result. On the other hand, he is fiercely smart, especially when it comes to scientific phenomena and we have some really good, detailed discussions on many and varied topics.

So, I guess, you have to take the bad with the good and learn to live with it.

Something that came to me this afternoon, in connection with various topics, is how much we rely on the help of others. Life really is a series of being helped by others and you helping them in return.

With that in mind, I would be upfront about your autism and just explain to people that you have this condition and you need them to be extra-patient and understanding with you. Some won't bother, but most will be willing to help you out and go the extra mile in accommodating your condition and treating you with compassion and kindness.

2 steps
Forgive them unconditionally no matter what.
Avoid using the words 'I' and 'Me' as much as possible.
