I'm new to this site (you probably figured that since I'm posting here :- ) and the reason I came here is to try to find answers. My life philosophy is "The reason for life is to enjoy life, live and let live". I believe that we are all eternal beings in a temporary world and what we see as reality is part of giving us new experiences. I also believe in God but religion is a construct of man to put God in a box that they can use to control other people.
As deep seeded as my belief in the para physical is, I can not make any connection to it. I say para physical because I don't believe it para normal nor do I believe it's super natural. If you can see it, smell it, hear it, taste it or feel it, then it's temporary. What's real is what exists outside the senses and into the heart.
The biggest obstacle I face is my myself. Physically, I can not setting my mind down enough to meditate, when someone offers a series of tasks, I get bogged down in the minutia and I'm so overly analytical of what is being said that I have problems coming up with a plan on my own.
I think that the key to overcoming all of this is to have a coach or partner to help with meditation, but I have no idea where to begin with finding someone. I tried hypnosis, but I could not afford to continue seeing her and progress was being made so slowly that it would have cost thousands of dollars to get where I needed to be just to begin.
If you're still reading at this point, I really appreciate you taking the time to read everything. Please let me know you read to this point if you comment on my post. Thanks :-)
