    Are you kidding me right now?? I’m literally watching my kid die a slow miserable death? over this disease and that will probably take me out too! Thats what I know!

  • pecanpower says:

    I’ll just say that I have received immense guidance through the teaching of Bashar. And I have yet to wear out that resource.? He speaks on beliefs and how we create our own reality and if you take it far enough, this resource will be invaluable.

  • pecanpower says:

    But it is in your way. Once you know what you are after, then you can receive help in many many ways. And some sources you may have to take the good with the bad. I let my own clarity and interest lead the way, and discard what doesn’t work. Bits and pieces everywhere in many forms, even including mainstream sources. So, I’ll rattle off some ideas and I’ll just leave it at that- Eckhart Tolle, Adyashanti, Bashar, Gangaji, Mooji,? and that’s just the best I can think of to recommend.

  • pecanpower says:

    In that first comment I said “aspects”. I’m sorry. I should have just written aspect. The most fundamental aspect of your mind is existence. But many doctors and advice givers aren’t aware of it or have experienced these things themselves. You could probably teach them some things. I could go on and on. But I would just like to encourage you to go all out to find the deepest truth about your truest self. There are others on your path? and there are others that teach that can help.

    You may see that the mainstream conformist psychology is on a slow and mundane path that? leads to ruin. And part of your psychology is still a bit conformed, because it is a basic survival instinct. And the bit that is still conformed is struggling with the part that has tasted freedom. And this manifests in many ways. Once you tap into mere existence, the main aspect of your mind, you do not need all of this conformity and everything will begin to heal.

  • pecanpower says:

    Ok. You have to perhaps see that there are aspects of your mind that the general public is not in touch with, but maybe you are a little more. Because there isn’t any mainstream wisdom in this area, you won’t really get the real help you need from? the mainstream. The mainstream is really about a weird survival conformity which makes “us” just get crazier. You are on a good path, and you probably know it.

  • Dana Baker says:

    BULL! This video is how many years old and yet we still have the same issues. I am living the same life with a child with co-occurring disorders and I have been to every one of those websites, cried, begged, spent money I don’t even have and still every facility I find that comes even close to more than a week or two of inpatient care want? THOUSANDS of dollars. If you have a disability as in mine and my son’s case you can forget it. Everyone should be ashamed that this is still an issue!!!
