How many of you guys are hikkis? It is not something I am proud of personally, yet, it's only been about a month into my second relapse. Have any of you been through this, and have you any advice?

I'm sorry to hear that man, your story sounds a lot like mine. How are you holding up?

Do you have any support, family or otherwise?
Have you tried medical help? Is that accessible where you live? Antidepressants are far from great, but in a desperate situation, they can help restart things.

Mind that despite the shared goals and values, Buddhism can be very different in attitudes and practices between the schools. I checked different ones (started with Tibetan, peeked into Zen) and ended up with the Thai Forest Tradition linked above because they:

1. Feel the most down-to-earth, pragmatic and "academic", with the least "religious" vibe (compared to something like Tibetan schools full of mysticism and gods or poetical and lofty Zen);

2. Are the closest to the early Buddhism both in theory (focusing on the Pali Canon and meditation while ignoring many later additions) and in practice (the tradition is actually "anti-Thai" and was started by dedicated ascetic monks who were going deep into the jungle to avoid the laid-back clerical lifestyle in the cities).

I'd still recommend therapy for depression/anxiety/etc. because self-managing them is hard while a trained therapist can help to navigate those issues from the 3rd person view. Still, Buddhist mind training works well as a complementary approach, and while therapy helps to get back to what could be called "the ordinary level of unhappiness", the Buddha taught methods to go beyond this level and achieve the unconditioned happiness that comes from within the mind.

Jordan Peterson is interesting to listen to, but, yeah, I wouldn't recommend anyone use his philosophy as a replacement for real therapy.

thread OP here. just got a new part-time job, and I'm starting community college this fall. I get to do almost all my classes online, a great way to ease back into things. i'm pretty excited and hopeful this time around.

I searched all boards, and was surprised to not find a thread for tulpas considering the imageboard we're on. I'm sure a few of you should have one though, so let's share and discuss everything associated with tulpas and tulpa creation.

If anyone isn't familiar with this, a "tulpa" is an entity created by meditation and imagination, which splits off your own consciousness in your mind and learns to act, feel, and think independently as its own personality. It becomes very much like a real person that talks to you and you experience life with it, but it's different from an imaginary friend in that it's sentient. With enough concentration and practice you can eventually superimpose your tulpa onto your own subjective reality and feel it with all five senses like a real person. A "wonderland" is an imaginary world that you construct in your mind to hang out in with your tulpa, scenarios can begin unfolding there on their own if you learn how to get into a hypnotic state via meditation and it's not unlike dreaming. As for dreams, you can meet your tulpa there and experience the dream together like a multiplayer game. This is just a simple explanation, and there's also lots of other stuff that you can do with your tulpa, but most other people make them at least for some kind of companionship.

For those of you who have tulpas, tell us about:
>who they are, what they're like, what they look like
>your wonderlands, what goes on there
>their creation/development process, how long it's been
>what your life is like with them, how it changed for you because of them
>whatever interesting experiences or problems you had and anything else you wanna share

I tried tulpamancy but it turned out I had undiagnosed psychosis and paranoia at the time. Embarrassed myself greatly talking to my ex thinking my tulpa was speaking. My mind is very weak and fragile. I don't recommend doing something like this unless you're prepared to handle it.

No.937

>tulpas will fuck you up in any meaningful way
If a tulpa does not recognize that its continued life relies on your health, wellbeing, and care for it, than you're probably dealing with a DID alter, or a demon lmao. not a tulpa
>do not make a tulpa if you are unprepared
Tulpas are actually very theraputic and helpful, if you're a loner, or need someone to look out for you verbally. Fleshed out tulpas can offer unique perspectives on things.
>i made friends so i didnt need my tulpa
this is retarded and cruel. get fucked.
>life moves past her attention
this is a truly difficult hurdle. when i had a wagie job, my tulpa was very young. i did my best to interact with her, and if anything, it increased a romantic bond, and a respitual feeling i would get from her between moments stolen where i could just embrace her, or laugh at her visual gags she would play on me.

her name is mont.

Glad you had a positive experience! I just couldn't handle a tulpa without my mind shattering, plus I only seem to attract negative entities so if I tried to create a tulpa no doubt they would turn on me and bad things would begin to happen. Plus I've talked about it with my therapist, and she agrees that it would be incredibly unhealthy for me.

Can you explain exactly what you mean by this? The idea in quantum physics that observation changes the outcome of an interaction is purely limited to the physical observation of small particles like the spin of an electron or the polarization of a photon. Plus you're not modifying the state by thinking about these things, the act of measurement collapses the possibility state into a single state which doesn't really have anything to do about your own subjective reality, it's an objective measurement.

Lately, I've been struggling with keeping a positive attitude and continuing on being productive in these trying times. In the spirit of this, I decided to make a thread about the battle for constant self-improvement! I saw an anon on /fit/ recommend this guide, and read through it. It was very brusque but I did find a lot of parallels between my life and that of failure avoidance tactics that we either conciously or unconciously employ.

I was having zoom therapy course as part of a legal case. I found that my low moods come from me not working and being productive enough but that came from me not working as much cause of my accident. I started getting more productive and making more money again and have felt a lot better for it. So my therpay stopped. Ive been tired last few days but I will make myself get out there again.
Ive also told myself I cant drink until I reach certain goals, perhaps by then I wont want to. SO be productive and have goals is my advice.

I fail to see the benefit of a "positive attitude". Falling for the Cult of Positivity has no relevance to the real world.

Last night was… bad… I had a psychotic episode and I called a friend I hardly know 23 times. I don't even remember what dumb shit I said to get.

I woke up this morning and found a sticky note on my bed telling me to call her when I was feeling better. I stressed out about calling her but I eventually manned up and called her. It went… Shockingly well, actually. So well that I've actually got a date lined up for Saturday. Life is funny.

What, so you can't share your issues with the person you're having a relationship with? Do you know what a relationship is? If the girl is really just doing this out of sympathy for OP, that will show very quickly. I can hardly see how this will 'destroy' the girl unless OP is an XXXTentacion-type violent depressive.

I read once that if you go deep enough through your anus, you can reach the spleen.
Suposedly massaging the spleen internally grants an incredibly intense sensation, like a constant orgasm that doesn't run out.
Couldn't find any info on Google, i doubt there's any truth to it, but i'm still curious nonetheless, have you guys ever heard anything about it?

OP here. Got out of the hospital last night. I went in thinking I had pneumonia (had started to exhibit all the symptoms, really). It was pretty quick as far as ER visits go and everything was free (thank god). I have bronchitis though and they did find a small number of solid particles in my lungs as well. I've been feeling a lot better since.

When I was hospitalized they ran some tests and confirmed it was the flu. Unless they are just incompetent and was wrong. Wouldn't surprise me, the hospital here really sucks.

That's good that you're doing better. What do you plan on doing once you're back to 100%?
