Seeing yourself limitless. When you think about a baby crying, one way of seeing them is as being hopeless. And while that is true in one way, in another way it powerful beyond measure. Imagine the amount of pain, irritation and attention it is able to create with this action inside it's parents and others close by. Imagine how it could also choose to lay there quietly and die. If you could choose which of those options is the one where the baby is the victim and in which one it is the creator, which would you choose? And we cannot measure just how much pain it is inflicting with that. Interesting how inflicting pain can be a good thing, if it is for survival. If you think of an embryo, in one way it is so fragile. In another, just imagine how quickly it is able to multiply itself. It doubles and doubles and doubles and doubles and doubles and doubles and doubles and doubles and doubles and doubles. It is creating isn't it? Wowie! If you think of us right before we are born, pure raw energy. What would it feel like to feel limitless rather, instead of hopeless?

Insightful, sometimes after crying for so long, I felt just like let it be, and just give in to others request, to tired, as the will to fight is gone, became no interest in anything and just wanted to live in peace. Should I continue crying, and attract attention?

Well I always thought that the crying of a newborn is also a way for him to speak up and to present himself imitating the speech that he does hear from the adults. It is also a way to proof that he does breath properly after that the breathing was a function related to the ombelical bound that he had with the female that did bring him in her belly for long 9 months.

Andrew Lim Mao Tung, thanks for sharing. I imagine it might be vulnerable for you to share what you just shared. There are several different ways we can productively engage with sadness. One is to realize that feeling sad is often experienced as a stuckness and the feeling needs to be able to move to be processed. The way to do that is to grieve. Meaning you accept that you may have lost something that was dear to you and you respectfully make a gesture saying goodbye to it. One way of doing this is imagining you are at a funeral putting something to rest. This way you actually process the emotions. This can be done also without crying by the way, even throughout the day during other activities. Another productive way to engage with sadness it to realize that you experience a sense of loss of some form or positive energy/feeling in your life. What you may then do is actually take a look inside yourself and realize that the energy may still be there. You may have lost some outside circumstance but you have not lost the positive experience. You may also feel powerless in your sadness. What you can do it look inside yourself and recognize that you are actually powerful. The energy you thought you lost is still there and you redirect your attention towards your own power. We can process sadness by going into the emotion to an extent, but we can also process it by identifying with those parts in ourselves that can carry the sad parts of us. We can also aim to actually be a bit playful about what we feel we lost. Life keeps on sending us challenges. Let's explore ways to engage with them playfully.

Thank you Marijus! It is a combination of many things. I don't have a clear approach ready to explain this. But I expect to reflect on this more in the upcoming days. If an answer to your question happens to drop in I will share it.

For babies they recognize a limitless love from their parents, which they can't understand because they don't see worthy in themselves, but just in the eyes of their parents. So, we don't grow at first with self-love, but our first love was the love from our mother to us, which became the love from us to our mother.

In my work of giving people access to their inner resources, I found that words have a distinct quality of experience they illicit when connected with. Qualities of experience are the qualities we ascribe to what we are experiencing at a moment. So for example, feeling expansive, flowy, full, empty, loved, welcome, productive, these are qualities of experience. Some people say that words are neutral, and we humans give charge to them, either positive or negative. While I agree we can project positive and/or negative qualities on a word, my sense is that they do seem to have their own experiential qualities to them already, possibly transmitted from the noosphere. Then they transmit what we as a collective human race project onto these words. They seem to elicit more homogeneous/universal qualities of experience in different individuals. That is what we have experienced in the collective I play with. What I find remarkable is the quality of 'Work'. 'Work' is actually a core inner quality next to for example Love, Power, Affect and Intellect. It is not something to aim to transcend, aiming to not work anymore. You can if you want to, but 'work' is that quality that has us actually make the effort to make a decision, to consciously choose our values and live by them. 'work' is that quality of not going with every direction of the wind, and instead following our path purposefully and intentionally. Even if we may never need to work again in a near future scenario, I don't think work is going anywhere. Work is virtuous. If we want to feel we keep on growing as individuals work as we know it may change, but work itself isn't going away.

It is necessary to be okay with not knowing to find inner peace. As long as we have to know there is always something to think painfully about.
