    I am thinking about going to a Past Life Hypnotherapist.

    Reincarnation and past lives

    To me, reincarnation and past lives always seemed scary because I don't want to be a terrible person in another life. I already feel like a terrible person in this life, but what if in another life I was truly awful? Despite my fears, I do believe in it. I believe there's a cycle and that life...

    life just seems like one giant obligation.

    why do we force people to live against their will? If suicide is selfish isn't it just as selfish to force someone to live an life of abject misery so you don't get upset for a short period of time? If someone genuinely doesn't want to be here any more isn't it more humane to help them end their...

    My summarized view of a depressed life

    I think people need their good moods/feelings (their feel-good chemical/neurotransmitter induced states of well being) to allow them to perceive (see) the good value, joy, beauty, happiness, love, and worth in their lives. I don't think our way of thinking, our outlooks, actions, and our value...

Before merging with my chest and leaving me with a wonderful feeling of confidence and courage. It struck me afterwards in the morning how important the quality...

    Finally found the reason of my creation

    Hey, I think I finally found the reason why God created me. I've thought about it a lot and very frequently, checking every possibility, ruling out stuff and so on. But every time the conclusion is: God created me in order for other people to see and cherish their own lives and thank God. He...
