    Haha.. Hoka Hey!
    Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, are given a chance to climb. They refuse, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is. —Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish, Game of Thrones

    Hi gypsy

    Im a quarter of the way through the recommended book you retracted and finding it interesting. Even if the remainder is shite I'll listen to it through.

    The second half of the Tara Brach book is much better than the first half, especially the stuff she says about forgiving yourself and everyone around you. This is especially helpful for me being surroundD by 4500 men I dont really like

    Hey BB

    Oh I'm glad you ended up finding the Tara Brach one helpful. I'm surrounded by billions of men I don't really like

    I just came here to post another article about courage by Gary Z McGee: https://fractalenlightenment.com/358...mbs-into-lions

    Hi gypsy

    i read the courage article you posted. Kinda Tara Brach using different words.

    Am 70 percent through the Brain book and can see now why you trashed it. Ive so far learnt some scientific info but nothing practical which isnt obvious. A lot of triggers in it too which means you need to be in a good frame of mind to read it.

    I'll finish it eventually hoping to learn something new in part 3

    Hi gypsy

    Just finished listenimng to that book and yes, another good recommendation. Some parts caused my anxiety to spike but overall its inspiring.

    All this neuroscientific stuff is new. It makes me realise how amazing Claire Weekes was to get it so right so ahead of her time.

    What was the book that you recommended but got stolen in the post? something to do with acceptance I think

    That wasn't me.. I get my books on iBooks and Kindle

    There's the Ruby Wax books on mindfulness though. I've been reading fiction mostly so I have a few of those to recommend if you're interested.
