With regards to the question Arvarna has asked and the general confusion within the thread, I feel a really great way for us all to learn about how to share ourselves in the most loving way possible is to find Mary's posts on the differing threads across the forum and study/feel about how she structures her posts towards others. I feel Mary's posts are a great example for everyone and a great model for us all to aspire to.Arvarna wrote:I would like to ask though:
Do we need to always state how we feel about things for people to know us? Because I find sometimes that I share certain things (with people in my everyday life) but then think 'did I really need to share all that?'. Because I find that we can also be addicted to sharing how we feel all the time.
I guess I am not clear on how to let myself be known by others without oversharing about a whole heap of stuff? (This is something that my family does too)
Of course, Mary is the highest developed person in terms of love who has been posting on the forum therefore most of us wouldn't be clear and comfortable with offering direct personal feedback to others like she has done in a few of her posts but I feel the key is to observe how Mary goes about answering or getting involved in a certain topic and seeing how much of it she relates back to herself etc.
Again as I mentioned in my previous comment here, a lot is down to how we are actually feeling at the point of writing a post on the forum so again, I'd encourage us all to just be aware of this and take a few moments to feel about this when posting. Is there a compulsion/desperate feeling in me to make a thread or post? If so, I am probably in addiction so maybe I should reflect and feel the compulsion before posting OR is there actually a sincere feeling in me wanting to help someone or wanting to know answers to my questions?
