First time posting here. I've followed your blog for years, but just recently followed my inspiration to join the forum. I felt to post today, if for no other reason than to say thanks.
Steve, thank you so much for all of your posts, especially those from this month. They have shown me that I'm on the right path. I'm seeing parallels in my life of almost everything that you have written about. Not just one or two, but in nearly every line that you have written.
I started a similar experiment at about the same time you did. I wasn't calling it living from a subjective viewpoint, but it was basically the same thing. Your posts have definitely helped me to clarify what I was trying to do.
As a result of this experiment, I too have seen dramatic improvements in my relationships, and frequently in ways that I never would have imagined. I'm communicating much more often and making deeper connections with everyone I come in contact with. Things are just falling into place for me and for those around me. Friends that are unemployed are finding work. I'm just happier.
I'm definitely seeing that living life this way is much better just because I feel so much more connected with everyone and everything. The anxiety of perceiving myself as separate and therefore not being safe is fading away, and rather quickly. The concepts of "oneness" and "being the thing that you desire" suddenly make sense, both of which are concepts I've struggled with for a long time.
And thank you for the blessing of abundance and a windfall of money that you left us. I'm looking forward to that. Especially since I am hoping to win a home in an auction on Friday. Regardless of the outcome though I'm going into the event in an non-attached way, just curious to see what the outcome will be.
I'm still working on immersing myself as deeply as you have into subjective living, and I'm finding it easier to do so every day. I can't wait to see what I'll learn tomorrow.
So again, thank you, thank you, thank you. I love you, and appreciate what you do (while realizing of course that we are one).
Oh, as a final thought, as far as the stress management goes, I've been exploring style number 3, and I've been trying to let go of beliefs. Really it has probably been more of a combination of all three styles of dealing with stress that you mentioned, but I've slowly been leaning towards number 3. While meditating the other day I came to understand intellectually how our beliefs, even those that we deem as positive can really limit not only our progression, but also the progression of others. Now I'm working on experiencing that understanding. I'll let you know how I progress.
