Oh yeah! Enjoy the ride alright! I wrote about this in my 'well shit...' thread...

This is a fantastic thread!

I know people come here in pain and I know we are all at different levels with this, but I can't help think that we are exactly where we are meant to be. That old saying 'the teacher will appear when the student is ready'... thus the penny will drop when the time is right.

I'm loving my non-limerent brain and the limerence journey as I wouldn't be in this position without it... I'd be stuck in sleepwalking mode, defence mode, blaming others mode, looking to LO for answers mode.

My new mantra is 'I CAN' and that is to combat all the crappy narratives I created throughout my life. Because in reality, I can! And if I can't, I'm going to do it anyway! :-B
Have conquered limerence.
I'm no expert, but have learnt enough to know where to look for answers.

Well, I felt like I wuuuuz being punished by God or something because the pain over my condition was off the charts.
Given how opinionated I am regarding limerence, love, desire, etc... I guess I can be true to myself even in this topic:

God doesn't punish us, no matter what we do. That's a lie pretty much intentionally fabricated by a certain mainstream religion to gain control. Which seems to make some sense just because that's how we operate.

Here's a sampling of an Eckhart Tolle....
I didn't knew about him until I started reading references here. Now I'm glad I do. He seems to know a thing or two. :D

Spinnaker, I am glad to hear that you are recovering from surgery and used this time for further growth.

I always appreciate your wise words and your view of the path from a bit farther ahead.

Thank you for sharing!

Thank you for the kind responses.

Update:

This immersion into self work has been beneficial and got me to climb what looks to.
