No because lying to someone as highly intelligent as Trixie is too much effort [ although I do not actually
lie myself so just saying ] Besides I have way too much respect for her to do such a thing even if I did lie

I was speaking about the below...which you said...

Every day when you wake up from now on I want you to say in a loud voice five times

My name is Trixie and I am a human being who has meaning in her life and so my life is worth living


If she doesn't believe this, feel this, how is it going to help her, even though you meant well but remember, hell can very well be paved with good intentions.
I was speaking of Trixie lying to herself - not you to her.

Besides I have way too much respect for her


Now, if you actually do have so much respect for her, you will put your money where your mouth is, and that will be helpful to her. I've noticed from some of your posts that you do seem to like and care about her.
So your money and your mouth are in harmony.

Maybe I'm wrong about the mantra thingy though. But I do seem to intuit that we need to at least believe what we're shouting to the heavens before any good can come from them (mantras).

BTW, intelligence and emotions can be seas apart. One may be highly intelligent and give into the lie. Emotions play a great part in our beliefs towards ourselves and things.

When I was dungeonized in KT, it made me feel like a worthless loser, the worthless loser that I still am. But I still had ILP to keep me going on and not totally despair.

So I thank you for these boards and I thank you for never banning me, I would probably not be here today if you did.

I'm surprised you feel such value of the forums.
Hopefully the mods will understand.

HaHaHa,


I hope you never base real life upon dreams. The outcome will probably be contrary to what you're expecting.


Let's not go throwing the baby out with the bathwater, Sir.
The outcome may be contrary to what we're expecting but very often much better than what we're expecting - at least if we pay attention and have the courage to ask: What are you trying to tell me? What are you trying to show me?
Our unconscious may be far wiser than our waking life is and it at times saves little pearls of wisdom for us and has beacons waiting to show us the way.

You're so silly.
