    I think I'm going to stop eating eggs and chicken... Or at the very least switch to cruelty free/free range. Has anyone looked into the practices of the poultry industry? So cruel, saddening and unnecessary. >:(

    Yeah, I only eat pastured eggs. 'Cage free'/'free range' is usually not at all what you'd imagine. It's far better for the hens and us (since the eggs are more nutritious and can taste better too). But note the term 'pastured' isn't regulated, so check with the particular brand to see exactly what that means (how much space per hen, how much time outside, are they walking around in what looks like a nutrient dense environment with grass/weeds/seeds/bugs etc).

    I was actually just googling that! Apparently there's no qualifications as to what can be called free range or not. It's so difficult to actually know what you're getting when false advertising is so rampant. Cutting poultry out of my diet completely wouldn't be a big problem for me though, as I'm not really too fussy about what I eat.

    The fact that this process is not considered needless animal cruelty is astounding. You can pump hens full of antibiotics, fatten them up until their legs break, and keep them scared and confined in a cage until they die, all in the name of cheaper eggs, and that's percectly fine? Who the hell needs eggs that badly?

    Well anyway, the culling process is what I really, really find sickening. Creating mass amounts of animals under intensive farming just to destroy them when they serve no use to you is utterly despicable, in my opinion.

    went on holiday for just over a month, thought things would change. How naive of me..

    feels nice to browse back on this forum here though, its been a while since i surrounded myself with somewhat like minded people :)

    Another thought, sometimes when i say things to other people i feel as though my words do not match up or best express my thoughts and it feels as though im speaking an entirely different language to them.

    Learning that apparently I am a major problem solving = caring person. And when someone I love is sick or in pain and I can't fix it, it is supremely....feelings-making. I don't even know what feelings. Sad/frustrated? And intensifies the caring/loving feelings I have toward the person, too. And some sort of protectiveness too? Also makes one feel kind of useless against certain life events. *shakes fist at the sky* all I can do is be there and I'm sure that means a lot but it also just feels..impotent lol
    But really, I didn't know I was so strongly like this. Surprising.

    Allowing yourself to be vulnerable is a double-edged sword.

    On one hand, it is very liberating to express devastatingly raw honesty. To admit things or gain perspective and not worry about... "safety."

    On the other hand, it is Pandora's box. After the thrill/novelty wears off a little, I'm often left with anxiety, self-consciousness, hypersensitivity. Nauseating. Additionally, having to face the reality of what I released... nose-to-nose, in a way, with my weaknesses. The aspects of myself that I normally push out of the way because I have bigger things to deal with.

    Did I hand over the weapon or just turn the gun on myself?

    Don't generally comment in regard to someone elses post in this thread as it feels intrusive, but what you wrote brought this to mind and thought might share on the chance that it'd be interesting to read.

    The Genuine Heart of Sadness ~ Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche
    The sitting practice of meditation… is the means to rediscover basic goodness, and beyond that, it is the means to awaken this genuine heart within yourself. When you sit in the posture of meditation, you are exactly the naked man or woman… sitting between heaven and earth. When you slouch, you are trying to hide your heart, trying to protect it by slumping over.
    But when you sit upright but relaxed in the posture of meditation, your heart is naked. Your entire being is exposed-to yourself, first of all, but to others as well. So through the practice of sitting still and following your breath as it goes out and dissolves, you are connecting with your heart. By simply letting yourself be, as you are, you develop genuine sympathy towards yourself.” “When you awaken your heart in this way, you find, to your surprise, that your heart is empty.
    You find that you are looking into outer space. What are you, who are you, where is your heart? If you really look, you won’t find anything tangible and solid. Of course, you might find something very solid if you have a grudge against someone or you have fallen possessively in love.

    But that is not awakened heart. If you search for awakened heart, if you put your hand through your rib cage and feel for it, there is nothing there except for tenderness. You feel sore and soft, and if you open your eyes to the rest of the world, you feel tremendous sadness. This kind of sadness doesn’t come from being mistreated. You don’t feel sad because someone has insulted you or because you feel impoverished. Rather, this experience of sadness is unconditioned. It occurs because your heart is completely exposed. There is no skin or tissue covering it; it is pure raw meat. Even if a tiny mosquito lands on it, you feel so touched. Your experience is raw and tender and so personal.” “The genuine heart of sadness comes from feeling that your nonexistent heart is full. You would like to spill your heart’s blood, give your heart to others.

    For the warrior, this experience of sad and tender heart is what gives birth to fearlessness. Conventionally, being fearless means that you are not afraid or that, if someone hits you, you will hit him back. However, we are not talking about that street-fighter level of fearlessness. Real fearlessness is the product of tenderness. It comes from letting the world tickle your heart, your raw and beautiful heart. You are willing to open up, without resistance or shyness, and face the world. You are willing to share your heart with others.”
    — from Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior

    I think my bro's favorite animal is the otter. It's come up twice now. My bro bringing anything up twice is a sign.

    sometimes i look at people and i see them , well on the outside at least, doing all these things and saying all these words and i wonder what it would be like to act that way... am i missing out on something? perhaps not but what if i am? does everyone or anyone at all else think this way? surely there must be. Do i appear odd to others? sometimes i just feel out of place

    We are all alone in our own minds, and it saddens me sometimes but i am somewhat ok with it.

    I wonder what it would be like to seem so unfettered from what i can only assume is over thinking, to live in... would you call it ignorance? the grass is greener where you water it i guess

    tl;dr - If how i feel today was a colour, it would be grey.
