@mike I remember you mentioned a study on how different view of god influenced how people view themselves and the world. (simplified) believing in an angry god makes people more angry/anxious | believing in a loving god makes you more compassionate.
Am I remembering this correctly? Where can I find this study?
Over the past 1.5 years my wife and I decided to start swinging and just last week decided to be sexually open (with guidelines)
This journey has revealed so much to both of us, uncovering deep insecurities & jealousies that would have otherwise laid hidden.
If you feel sexually attracted to other people, have the conversation. If you decide to remain monogamous, great! If not, great!
Honesty is far more important than not hurting someone’s feelings or feeling insecure.
I’ve noticed people turning their heads to look at me as I pass them on the street.
At first I thought It was because I looked weird.
Then I thought I was getting hotter.
After a week of this someone finally approached me and told me the real reason people keep looking at me. She said, “OMG! You look so much like JVN! You know, from queer eye‽”
Hey @vishnu! I just wanted to say thank you for your thoughtful answer to my (many) questions about Buddhism and social activism on @mike’s podcast last week! Your answer was very freeing and affirming, and it really meant a lot to me, so thanks :) Also, yes, I will absolutely be your friend! I wish Detroit and LA were a little closer—hopefully I can catch you at a Tabs & Wafers or a Gathering sometime. Until then, if you ever need another friend in Michigan, you’ve got one!
down the rabbit hole and trying to wrap my head around what it will take to set up my own home server...
does anyone know about this stuff? specifically getting and setting up a Raspberry Pi or something similar to run Nextcloud on?
pointers to articles or instructions for dummies would be greatly appreciated.
@Vaashtii I too find these statements pretty insensitive, and annoying at best. Not because I really think there is absolutely nothing good to come in the future. But more because these statements end up hushing someone in process or in grief. It silences rather than opens dialogue. It's a patronizing, pacifying platitude. Like I said, annoying at best. It says more about the person speaking it than about the future of the person it's spoken to.

@mrhurricanefred that’s okay! Honestly, I didn’t either until I had a transcendental experience with Kundalini meditation. It was the most transformative experience I had other than the first time I spoke in tongues. After my experience, I wanted to find answers.
