clement ci - day 318 attempting abstinence, 238 from self
posted in chat:
12:50:58 ‹clement› ok instead of working myself into more and more stress due to my paralysis, i'm going to read "15 points" as my plan states
12:54:15 ‹clement› I am quite dissatisfied that this is working.
12:54:41 ‹clement› as i was reading, i was thinking the idea i posted before, that this reading is actually changing the dopamine balance in my brain.
12:54:58 ‹clement› so today, as i was reading, i was also thinking "this is changing the dopamine in my brain"
12:55:37 ‹clement› and, i think it was. it was making something that was previously low-dopamine (going up stairs and getting something) into high-dopamine (i have the motivation to do this)
12:56:13 ‹clement› so why am i so dis-satisfied? Because solutions are devoid of mystery. of challenge. problems inspire me?
12:57:04 ‹clement› I dont want to live in a materialistic world, where everything is all levers and causality.
12:57:19 ‹clement› I want to live in a spiritual world. I want to believe i am a spiritual being having a human experience.
12:58:10 ‹clement› I want to believe there is more. That Real True Love exist, that the Perfect Ideal exists. That Beauty is not just an impression, but a reflection of something infinitely deep
I like this: It helps me daily.

Thanks to everyone for the lovely welcome-back messages! Here's my best guess at God's plan for my Tuesday so far:
I have a major fearful procrastinated financial task that I just don't see how to fit it in the day without sacrificing sleep. I will pray today for honesty, openmindedness and willingness to receive godly inspiration on when and how to schedule and accomplish this BHT (Big Hairy Task).
