Pinned toot

Ok, round 2. I grew up in a small farm town in AZ, in a southern Baptist Church. Moved to LA and started deconstructing my faith after working at Fuller Seminary. Lots of books, podcasts, and conversations have allowed me to settle into reconstruction and the ongoing cycle of skepticism. Pressing into oneness, vipassana meditation and mindfulness. Thankful for community where I can truly be all of me. You're all like family. As always, ask me anything.🤘🏻👌🏻❤️

yo yo yo yo, I'm Aaron, I live in and do IT/Infra Engineering. Love tinkering, making, floating, cooking, playing music.. so many things. As you might guess, I'm 7w8. previously @FullerSeminary

Life is far more joyous when you appreciate the few who really get it, rather than resending the many that don't.

That's not to say that things won't objectively be better, after certain things happen... or that we shouldn't push for justice and equality. I only mention it because I think in western society we can focus so much on the next thing, we tend to lose potential joy.

I've found that I can trap my self in the idea that "things will be better, when..."

The truth is that I can find and wake up to the NOW that's always happening. There's beauty, joy, bliss and mystery around us all the time. If I wait for something to make my life better, I'm going to miss out on so much NOW.

Psychadellics 

Have any of you had experiences with Psychedelics? If so, which psychedelic and how was the experience? What did you learn?

Psilocybin for me, when I look back I'd say it was one of the more formative experiences I had. Lots of self introspection and connecting of dots I didn't know connected. I realized the ways in which I judge myself. Good times.

CBD oil question, mh-, boosts appreciated 

Does anyone know of a good online source for CBD oil that's not overly expensive? I've gotten some from a local store, and while I'd prefer to support them (esp. as it's someone I know), it's far too pricey for me to take it as often as I need to manage my anxiety and depression. If I took it daily, which would be ideal, it would cost me $100 per month, and I just can't pull that off comfortably right now.

Just heard a teenager refer to Weezer as 'vintage dad rock' I'm fucking dying
The guy behind them looked so offended ·

It's easy to live third way when things are good. It's pressing in when life is challenging that is the true test.

Working remote in Tempe is always an oddly cathartic experience.

Every time I see this liturgist photo on patreon I think of Mike Wazowski. 😂

What are some books y'all can recommend that were thought provoking for you?
-Things in the spirituality vein but not necessarily Christian (specifically not evangelical, right now I'm distancing myself from the religion/spirituality of my past)

Being tired is not a badge of honor. It just means you're tired.
