Hey everyone, I'm new here, but glad I found other existentialist nutbars like myself to empathize with. I'm fairly new to this-always have been a worrier and hypochodriac-but everyone here has that 'deep-mindedness' syndrome going on without doubt. We're victims of ourselves, our own curiosity, our own perpetual desire to 'figure it out'. I see so many patterns here, it's almost humorous. Beautiful, eloquent writers, philosphers, artists, etc. The majority of us in here, I believe are what make life worth living for so many others. You should all know that this is the way people see you, despite our worry. Hell, I even have my current girlfriend, because she 'likes the way I think' Back in 4th grade I was awarded 'most inquisitive' at the end of the year. By the time I was seventeen I had already discovered Buddhism and had gone through enough existentialist rubbish to last a lifetime. Now, it's back right? Remember though-the condition exists not as this 'spooky' kind inexplicable 'altered state', it exists because we're all predisposed to anxiety, worry, and inadvertently curiosity for whatever reason. Even those of you that are suffering after drug use. We're simply caught at a higher degree of worry than everyone else-like hyperworry. And if there's a way in, there's a way out, but it shouldn't be ignored. This is YOUR life, regardless of how wierd and uncontrollable it feels. YOURS. To the Buddhists and existentialists: It's all rubbish. You're experiencing an anxiety disorder, not a fateful, oh-so-important, perpetual koan. Internalize what you've seen instead of letting it control you. Has anyone experimented with The Linden Method? I'd like to know. Thanks, doubleplusgood.
