    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.

  • TheManolakis says:

    these “professionals” are the least likely to be accurate or honest. They make their living off the suffering of others. They prescribe to a paradigm that offers little hope and almost no chance of recovery. In fact their industry is in the back pocket of the big pharmaceutical companies who’s only interest is in obtaining and RETAINING customers not in recovery and succesful treatment.This show is more of? a testament to their egos than helping others.
