''Bliss and silence is relatively the same for everybody.''

Good one, running.

"Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by riding daily in a balloon of divine perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones...Meditate unceasingly,
that you quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence"
~~Lahiri Mahasaya, the guru of Yogananda's guru

I have no scientific evidence for anything I say.
Better to PM me if you want me to see a post to me. I miss a lot.

Although I think god would welcome our love I don't think he actually "needs" it.

When I read these words it gave me a sense of what it means to be uniquely myself. I get to be me - as if its a privilege. I love that way of looking at it.

Ive been looking for ways to reconsider my wasted youth and feel better about it and youve provided a couple insights here that are very helpful to my situation.

I'll echo the same sentiment as running. I'm lucky I didn't end up in jail during my early years. I look back on it with utter amazement. It was a wild & crazy time and I was totally irresponsible and without a care in the world or plan for the future.

But you know what? I wouldn't trade it away for a different past that would have allowed me to realize my 'potential' because that's who I am and I can't deny myself. It's the reason I'm where I'm at now and there's no guarantee a 'better' early life would have deposited me in a better place.

Seeing that you're here now and posing these questions indicates to me you've taking away some strong life lessons and want to do something different.

All the Woulda-Coulda-Shouldas
Layin' in the sun,
Talkin' 'bout the things
They woulda coulda shoulda done...
But those Woulda-Coulda-Shouldas
All ran away and hid
From one little Did.
