At its core, emotional pain is an intense feeling of distress, anguish, or suffering that stems from non-physical sources. Unlike the ache from a stubbed toe or a headache, this type of pain originates from events or circumstances that hurt us deeply on the inside.

Jealousy is a complex emotion that encompasses feelings ranging from suspicion to rage to fear to humiliation. It strikes people of all ages, genders, and sexual orientations, and is most typically aroused when a person perceives a threat to a valued relationship from a third party. The threat may be real or imagined.

Terror takes away our sense of safety and may also make us feel helpless, hopeless, and angry. After a scary or traumatic event, a person may no longer be able to go about their usual life in the same way as they could before. This feeling of overwhelming fear can have both short-term and long-term consequences.

      Good news about Iowa!

      You're very welcome. Btw I was just looking at their bookstore & wanted to specify you'll find the books I recommended under the "mystical insight" tab. https://shop.yrf.org/yoga/books/books-mystical-insight/   And if you want a very brief and impactful primer on Vedanta philosophy, this little book is awesome.  https://shop.yrf.org/items/books/waking-dream-and-deep-sleep/

      @Vidanjali Thank you! I'll take a look at the books and ask you if I have more questions <3

      Such synchronicity - I also just posted in the Hinduism forum. My guru, Swami Jyotirmayananda, has written many enjoyable books which provide accessible insight into Hinduism and the mystical meaning of dieties and their doings. I recommend his books "Mysticism of the Ramayana" to learn about Rama, Hanuman, and others; his "Mysticism of Srimad Bhaghavatam" to learn about Krishna and other incarnations of Vishnu; and his "Worship of God as Mother" to learn about aspects of the Devi or goddesses for starters. You are also welcome to ask questions in this thread or DM me with any questions you have as it is my pleasure to discuss aspects of Hinduism. I have been a devout aspirant and student of Vedanta for several years now and have begun to work on developing some educational materials on behalf of Swamiji's Yoga Research Foundation.    Here's a link to their bookstore. They do ship rather promptly. https://shop.yrf.org/

      Good morning everyone,   It’s Monday for those that work, and a day of continued recovery for me. I feel a little bit better today however I’m going to continue self medicating.    I slept most of the day yesterday, as well as all night. Yesterday my wife went to the store and bought me several cans of chicken soup, which was really nice of her since she had already completed the weekly grocery shopping Saturday.    @Willow I hope and continue to pray for your health, and understand your concerns about progressive loss of speech.    Hugs,   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      I'm very much not an expert in Hinduism, but the things I have read were very intriguing to me   That being said, I recently got a story idea involving Hindu deities. It's really only a bare idea right now and not anything solid worth sharing, so I'll skip over that part to the point. If I do end up writing it, I would want to make sure to get things right even if I never share it, so if anyone has good places to get good research on the topic at large done for said story idea, I'm all ears

      This morning I was watching my guru's daily livestream on twitch. We're watching Hindu scriptures depicted via an Indian TV show from the early oughts & Swamiji provides commentary giving spiritual insight into the events and characters in the storyline.    If you're reading this and know little to nothing about Hinduism, here's a very brief primer. Vedanta is the mystical philosophy of Hinduism. Vedanta purports that Truth is One and is spoken of in countless ways. Hindus believe God is One - absolute, indivisible & all-pervading. That Absolute is called Brahman and is also refered to as The Self. The many Hindu dieties represent various aspects of God and are meant to help the spiritual aspirant to learn, reflect, and be inspired to emulate. The demons depicted in Hindu scriptures represent various negative qualities present in the personality - impurities which the aspirant endeavors to sublimate by self-effort and surrender to God's grace.    That said, in the series we've come to the story of demons, Shumbha and Nishumbha. They represent "me" and "mine", respectively. I've heard Swamiji tell the story of Shumbha and Nishumbha many times as they also appear in the scripture devoted to worship of God as Mother & each year in October, the 9 day festival of Mother worship, called Navaratri, is celebrated at Swamiji's ashram.   Me & mine relate to ego and attachment. Today, Swamiji framed me & mine in the context of self-doubt and doubting the world. Egoism or self-doubt means you are identified with the mortal personality and body, whereas your true identity is The Divine indwelling all.   In terms of doubting the world, Swamiji humorously said, you think God got a headache one day and didn't create the right way. I found this quite fascinating, to think of mine-ness or attachment in terms of doubting the world. When you assign the label "mine" to anything, you imply that there is also "not mine". That which you call mine is dear to you; you identity with it. Conversely for not mine - at best you are indifferent about it & at worst you hate it. Such is the trap of attachment - attachment and hatred go hand in hand as you also develop hatred to some degree towards whatever you perceive as a threat to that you've identified as "mine".   Broadly speaking, the label "mine" is assigned to parts of creation. Conversely, "not mine" is assigned to other parts of creation. Every being does this all the time to some degree unless you are enlightened. And there are those who assign "mine" to parts of creation they consider acceptable, and "not mine" to parts they consider unacceptable. Certainly this is related to points of view which consider certain groups of people, including transgender people, as inferior, wrong, or evil. This is due to ignorance.   In today's message, Swamiji imparted that those free of ignorance see all of creation expressing the glory of God. God is all-pervading or omnipresent. That is easily said, but deeply profound and not so simple a point of view to attain because in so doing one must also see all seemingly adverse situations also as God's glory. This is accomplished progressively by spiritual practice - by learning, deep reflection, developing trust and faith, and constant surrender by seeing your body-mind-personality as God's instrument.   I am sharing this message as I am aware many trans folk struggle, internally and/or externally, with the idea of God having made a mistake. Here are some clips from today's livestream in case you're interested.   About "me-ness" called ahamta: https://www.twitch.tv/1391ijimaws/clip/ProtectiveBetterSpaghettiHassanChop-CycVSKmub2HU9XKJ?tt_medium=mobile_web_share&tt_content=clip   About "mine-ness" called mamata: https://www.twitch.tv/1391ijimaws/clip/FantasticBlueNostrilPeanutButterJellyTime-b3Bmo10LmukqGi_X?tt_medium=mobile_web_share&tt_content=clip   God doesn't make mistakes: https://www.twitch.tv/1391ijimaws/clip/AnimatedRelievedLadiesOMGScoots-Ojk5Y-rPndUS7AWX?tt_medium=mobile_web_share&tt_content=clip

      Good morning @Birdie   I hope you're feeling better today. What will it take for them to understand you are an intersex person fully capable of being the woman you always were? You don't have to answer that because I know the state you live in and the troubles you face. I wish they could get over themselves and accept you for you.   Hugs,   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Perhaps I'm in the minority but I generally put on light make-up unless I'm just working around the house. Foundation, darken my eye brows a bit, gel eye pencil along the bottom of my eyes (normally blue), mascara, a bit of rouge on my cheeks to add a little color and then lipstick.   Each of us is different and going with some make-up helps tamp down my dysphoria so that's the way I ride. :-)
