I honestly think sometimes, that talking to myself in the mirror is insane. Or that thinking about something before it happens hoping i'll effect it, is equally insane. That visualizing myself doing shit is insane, anyone have any resonant answers?

who is being the judge of sanity anny way? there is different level of understanding in this world some are only babe.and some other are adult.will the babe judge the adult out of ignorance ? or will the adult judge the babe for is lack of understanding? the answer is not in judgement but in understanding truth and harmony. what one can see as insane might be very sane for someone else. the one that see stuff as insane might not have understand something. and is still in ignorance for now.

So as @white tiger says, only in silence where there are no questions you can find your answers. ;)

(20 Dec '12, 02:32) CalonLan

i would not say in silence. i would say in your self in your reflection on the water,where you see your spirit(light) and soul( mind and heart) that is the place to make the search.and complete the puzzle.every question as answer, and every answer have question.that is part of the inner quest. to find the truth and solve duality.

(20 Dec '12, 05:26) white tiger

@white tiger, silence as in experience. For experience is silent. It cannot be spoken, and cannot be heard. And even if you try to speak of it or hear of it, you will only understand it if you go through it.

And to experience you have to be now, live the moment. Even mind is silent then. You only sense, don't think. Would you not agree?

(20 Dec '12, 06:21) CalonLan

@calonlan then why do you not go through it. then you will experience it.you could start right now. mind is not silent if mind is silent you would hear your heart properly.and if heart is silent you would hear your mind properly. like the indien say the greatest voyage to experience is between the heart and the mind to soar like eagle.

That's an easy fix.

Stop doing things that YOU believe are insane.

Now, you may end up doing things that, other people believe, are insane.

In this case it helps if you don't worry what other people think.

Because people, who just don't get what you get, will always insist that you are insane.

Think of it another way: If you see a mentally impaired person today, you might think that he is crazy and insane to some extent. But have you ever thought about it from the point of view of the mentally impaired person? To him, the rest of the people around him might be the ones who are crazy instead, not him.

As long as your craziness or insaneness does not offend or hurt anyone, I don't think it really matters in the end. When working in a company last time where there were motivated individuals around me who were aiming for high achievements and goals in life, they always said, : "Our friends may think that we're crazy for doing this and not living a normal life like everyone else, but we are definitely not stupid!"

(04 Apr '13, 02:24) ele

Hurt, maybe yes. But maybe that's because I cut myself with knife in last weeks so many times when cooking that my perspective on hurting is a bit amplified. But offending people? Fuck off will you. haha.

It's impossible for you to offend anyone. It's always the one who gets upset who's to blame. You can get offended, but noone can offend you.

(04 Apr '13, 04:49) CalonLan

@Calonlan "It's impossible for you to offend anyone .It's always the one who gets upset thats to blame "
It's it really "blame " or more like unawareness , not everyone is at the exact same place in the spiritual journey , does it really hurt anyone to speak with consideration , just curious like ?

(04 Apr '13, 21:43) Starlight

@CalonLan that is partially right that it is impossible to offend anyone unless they give you permission to, but then it is something that takes two hands to clap. If you know a particular thing you are going to do or say will offend someone before you do it, would you still do it? What for? If someone murdered your love ones out of the blue tonight for no reason, would you not be at least slightly offended for a few seconds, no matter how great a person you might be?

if your actions give you an internal joy and happiness of already possessing your desired thing, then this feeling of insanity will disappear...Because when you already have it, why would you think you are insane? if you rely on the world within, you don't need any conformation from the world without, they will naturally come to you. Faith changes everything. :)

It does seem less crazy with self love and acceptance, it looks more like eccentric or being a character, or being who I came to be.

Love this question Ben Plur SubCulture Framed

First let's see what sanity means;

It is based on the latin words "compos mentis", "having mastery of the mind" which literally means "being in full possession of one's mind", most interesting.

Now in practice we know that there're many people who aren't even aware that there's a constant flow of thoughts flowing through their minds and those that do realize it often have quite a difficult time mastering it.

Now let's examine what happens when we're in full possession of our mind, we become master of our reality, we can choose to live in harmony, abundance and peace.

Conclusion; most people live in a state of craziness, when i feel at peace and in harmony with the world natural abundance comes to me, i know i'm not crazy, though sometimes to some people i may give that impression :)

It's a crazy world, we're all crazy whaooooo

Insanity is defined as something that most people don't do. It's sad to say but the world in general doesn't accept ideas that they don't understand.

I channel, and in my story of how i met my channel

( here )

and in this story when i met him, i too believed I was crazy. I now understand that i am far from it, in fact coming in with such great insights that have helped thousands of people.

So we look at crazy, or insane, and we see that it's because as we grow from children, we are taught what is right and wrong, and we are put into a box of definitions. The definitions are set in place to keep us limited. It's not unintentional. As a collective consciousnesses, we do not believe that we are powerful. We do not see the true abilities we CAN have.

As sad as the idea of being closed off in general as a human, you should find comfort. As most people are waking now, you have a jump start. When you learn to quit judging yourself or other's ideas and people as good and bad, right or wrong, and see that all life is the soul's desire to grow and to experience life, then all other things are pale in comparison. Please watch these two vids if anything I have said resonates with you. Hope this helped.

You certainly cannot keep doing something if you think its insane. Also no one technique works for everyone. But there are lot of amazing array of tools available :-) so you can choose which you resonate better with.

There are a few ways you can approach it. One, you can try it for a little time like 21 days etc even though it does not feel natural. And see if you start to like certain aspects of it. Then you keep those and discard the others you don't resonate with.

Or You can try various different tools. Even i don't resonate with standing in front of mirror and doing affirmations but i listen to guided meditation with music which uplifts me and then i get lot of positive and high vibrations flowing and i get lot of clarity.

It doesn't matter even if you are insane, because you are seeking to improve your self. Visualizing is a good thing. Talking to yourself in a loving way is a good thing.

If I talk to myself in the mirror I try to move away from anything negative..ok, yes I do too talk to myself :) , in the mirror.

Are you involved in other things besides talking to the mirror?

Only a mental health professional can tell you that. People can say, "You are crazy." But you can't put credence to that, you need to check with a mental health professional.

Only a mental health professional is fully qualified to tell you that you are crazy.

@Wade Casaldi If I MHP made that diagnosis, they would lose their license. Now I'll share a part of my life with you. 15 min's away is an assisted living facility for mainly the mentally challenged. It' s located in the country on an old farmstead. It used to be the county farm for the indigent & mentally ill. The ol' timers call it the funny farm. Sometimes I stop in the evening when I'm driving by. I know the security code. I let myself in & make my way up to the top floor (boys) &

(04 Apr '13, 22:01) ele

& slip into the smokin' room & they deal me in. They go into town a couple times a week & they get a pop at the bars. They know all the local gossip & they spin great yarns & they are soo funny. They also critique my hair & my clothes & they have no issue telling me the truth. I have no choice but to laugh. I have a room picked out with an amazing view just in case. I could use a smoke; I wonder if its too late to stop.

@Wade , you introduced me to Kevin Trudeau , the first thing I took from him was this "facts are just other peoples opinions" so in that light I wonder , how often do so called MHP's , get their mental health checked up , one has to wonder alongside Catholic Priests who listen to "confessions " how does that affect their capacity to label anyone ? ....

  • 1 point @Wade for making me laugh so much lol ... the medical system of which you speak, is a man made belief system just as is mathematics, science, magic, law of attraction, cosmic energies, teddy bears etc. ... nothing has any value except the value that we choose to give it and that also applies to what i've just said, lol
