Re: Matt from Colorado

Hi Matt, Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my questions! I enjoyed the bigger story behind your initial post and I look forward to experimenting with the geese who frequent a lake near my home where I walk :) Because of your post, I remembered to notice the change in "my" cats' (not reall...

Re: Addiction and it’s impact on Desire

Hi Mareen, My apologies for anything that sounded ungrateful or dismissive. I did recognize the gift in your post and perhaps I'm not feeling you correctly. I realized a little while ago that I do abdicate power and although related, that has a different flavor than abdicating responsibility so mayb...

Re: Addiction and it’s impact on Desire

Hello Maureen, I’ve been reflecting on what you wrote in response to my questions about desire waning after some traumatic events. While I agree with some of your initial statements such as bringing these questions to God — absolutely and that applies to all questions — I feel that in most of your p...

Re: Matt from Colorado

Hi Matt, There are a few people from Colorado on the forum. Maybe there’s a mini-movement going on here. Being close to so much wilderness I often feel it’s easy to connect with God in the mountains, or by the ocean but only occasionally on the open prairie for me. As you said, “I felt about God out...

Re: Addiction and it’s impact on Desire

Hi Nicky and Amanda, Once I realized I couldn't edit or delete my duplicate post I thought that it was probably by design and a wise provision. Thank you Nicky for deleting the double post for me and the explanation about the purpose for that provision. I had a good chuckle at myself for exactly the...

Re: Addiction and it’s impact on Desire

My apologies for the double post. I was trying to edit the previous post because of a couple of repeated sentences at the top due to writing it in a word doc and pasting here. I haven't been able to fine how to delete the duplicate post.

Addiction and it’s impact on Desire

Note: Just considering how to compose this post I feel I’ve had an important realization which has to do with addictions and acting on desires. I appreciate having a venue here to express these types of complex issues! First, some context: I am a visual artist, always have been, never considered any...

Re: Another hello from Colorado

Thank you, Nicky. You've picked up on the area that has been baffling me in recent months -- will along with desires and action. I will post in the appropriate section to ask about these issues. Sometimes just articulating a question (taking that small action) is enough to bring an answer before I'm...

Re: Therapy

Sure thing, Katherine. I discovered after writing that original post that I am also not able to use the IM portion of the forum, so I'll email the info to you. After listening to a portion of the Healing Group video that Lena suggested, I realized that what has probably been the most effective part ...

Re: Therapy

Hello Lena,

Thank you for those links. I will watch the videos you suggested, plus view the links in that other thread on the subject and see if they answer the questions that came up for me after reading that Elvira had a very different experience from mine.

Much appreciated,
Rita R.
