how do you quiet your self (mind/heart)
telicat77: I don't think about it as expressing it to people but just letting myself feel the sense of justice when it needs to be felt . The Bible says God will repay but it doesn't mean that we can't sense what's wrong. Watch out for self gaslighting
Trail_7: But often times I feel a strong urging to tell the person who I feel wronged by, and not just feel but strongly beleive I am wronged by just how wronged by I am. Often times this is or was accompanied by entitlement/proud spirit rather than a humble, meek spirit and openness otherwise. It is not that I am self seeking I would say (seeking my own over what is good for my brother(or any person for that matter I suppose) /what they want to give to me but just telling it like it is.
I feel that my if you could call it "sins" have come up enough times for me to notice and to even question if I am truly even being sanctified in the Lord. My mother used to tell me that I go to church but still hurt her in the meantime. She also hoped I would be well behaved. Or so I was told through word of mouth, coming from my moms hospital stay, near death timing. Usually I think I am well behaved with people I do not feel entitled with or comfortable with - such as family or the rare person otherwise. However sometimes I also would tell people things such as - you think your opinions are the best, I think it were, to which I would get a response that I am abusive. It made me sad, hurt to hear such words about myself, uncomfortable, as I can vaguely remember it anyhow, but now I question if that person was even fair towards me.
DIAMONDfire: Those with lower natures (ignorance, delusion to be taken with a grain of salt really), should meditate and do some strenuous, physical posturing over a long term period.
Language (writing) is the way in and the way out.
telicat77: I get t a lot of help by reading Christians from all ages even early church fathers. One of the things that they tell us to do is mental stillness by keeping the mind on the body, it can help build up a positive emotional energy and peace of mind. St Gregory Palomas on defense of those who practice the life of stillness is where this is described in best detail.
Trail_7: OK. I noticed that on my own too but perhaps something worth practicing. Is that a book? P.s- I saw this comment earlier too.
tina_time7: i was traumatized last night but I went to sleep earlier for it but when I woke up I felt like I was about to fall over off my head when I sat on my bed. Then I felt better again, then I posted some stuff online about my emotions and felt weaker again. But not falling over weaker. Somewhere deep in my heart I at moments was jealous of or envied? - I think it means the sake thing? Of people who have smooth for the most part at least, loving relations. It is truly very hard to be hurt by men because a woman feels closer to a man than with another woman, and even more so if she felt a connection with him. It's devastating and hard. No wonder they said "dating is not for the faint of heart". Very wise man indeed who said that. He is a loving husband by the way. But anyone can love their friends Jesus said, so maybe she pleases him. But even he said - could she be someone who's quirks I tolerate and he said yes.
