    This made me smile and made me think of what my dad often says, "one of the first miracles God did was change water into wine." Have no idea if that is accurate, but he says it a lot!

    Yeah, I also chose to incarnate during the brink of madness/chaos.

    In addition to your comment, I find that my memory helps a lot, as one who forgets their past is truly lost...

    Yes, healthy distractions/hobbies/interests are important--especially to stop you from thinking negatively and instead get you into a positive frame of mind.

    Exactly same goes for me as well.

    So just following remaniki here.

    Really the inner feeling that everything passes by with time. For that matter even good things we cant hold on to also. So if good goes by then the bad also moves on.

    Thanks.
