    Making TT FRIENDSHIPS This thread is for those of us who sincerely want to create connections with other TT members and establish lasting and deep friendship. It is so important to find people we can call, text; visit. People who receive our bids for connection and who desire the connection with us enough to initiate conversations in return. There seems to be a lot of blocks towards TT members taking more action to establish networks with each other. People talk about it but we need to stop isolating away in our own pain and take action to actually. make. the connections. with each other. I spent the past night and this morning feeling completely alone. Realizing how desperate I feel for connection with friends. Not romance, not casual interactions, and especially no more "just talking" about it. ACTUALLY DOING IT. I text friends every day, but I have come to a place where I realize I am doing the majority of the initiating. I desire a friend with whom i can truly connect and who initiates with me as much as I initiate with them. Let's find each other! And initiate those connections we seek! here is a thread for you to find each other expressly for the intention of connecting.
  2. Looking to meet like minded people- Illinois suburbs I want friends who are going through the journey of authentically expressing themselves and consciously choosing to feel and love themselves. Online friends are great, but I am really looking for people who I can meet up with who will be a regular part of my life. I want a tribe. Who else wants this and lives in the Chicagoland area?
  3. Looking for People to Connect with If you are a Tealer and an avid Osho reader, if you love color as much as the absent of it. If you want to chat daily, whether is ranting or sharing a piece of music or a beautiful image you saw on pinterest. If you don't care about distance but if given the opportunity you'd like a meeting to take place. If you wish to talk about your interests or miseries. If you're a Lostie and have trouble finding another Lostie. If by any chance you're into choirs and are able to appreciate the beauty of religion and it's gifts to the world in the arts. If despite all people do and are capable of doing you can see beyond that darkness and don't condemn such darkness. If you know the world is fucked up and at the same time a breathing paradise. If you wish to live the mystery of life and share with fellow humans your realizations, glimpses and thoughts. If you resonate with this post, please don't give it another thought and message me, i'll be around and respond to you. Thank you for reading Edit: Do message me through gmail, aleistersdaughter@gmail.com.

    Unsolicited Advice Hey all Long time no see. I've been though quite a bit since I've been on here but I really missed this online community in the time I've been gone! Anyways, back into the heart of it... So, lately I've found myself having resistance to a friend of mine-- TOTALLY subconscious for a while, where I would end up flaking out when we would be about to hang out, until I was like, "what the hell is going on here" and decided to dive into the subconscious thinking behind my actions, since I didn't actually understand why I began acting the way I was. I found that I didn't like being around her because I felt ashamed for being the way I am. She met me at a time in my life where I've basically been my worst self... I've been struggling with suicide, self harm, and honestly I'm quite reckless when I get into these spaces, and I know this. Yet at the same time, I value authenticity. So I have made it a goal of mine to be as open and honest as possible about how I am feeling, regardless of how I think it 'should' be, and regardless of how ugly it might be. Our relationship is kind of based around these open exhanges about the workings of our inner world. We both are recovering from trauma, and so I really appreciate how she understands me in ways that other people don't seem to get me, and how we can both share tools that have helped us in our process. However, we kind of take different approaches. What I came to notice when uncovering my subconscious anxieties about hanging out with her is that she actually voices her opinions on how I live my life, quite frequently, and these opinions are actually quite the opposite of what I think is best for me at the time. She gives advice unsoliticted and it causes me to doubt my own intuition, especially since it so frequently seems to contradict the direction I myself feel pulled to going towards. It puts me in a state of polarity then, every time we hang out. Because it's like on one hand, I want to be seen, and I want to be open about what I'm going through, but on the other hand, I am really tired of feeling ashamed for wanting to take my own course of action, since it so often seems to be in the opposite direction that she thinks is logical. In fact, when I'm around her I've noticed I start saying I will do things her way because if I don't, she has a way of making me feel insignificant for wanting to do things my own way. Even if the decisions I want to make are ultimately destructive, it's the sort of thing where I want to make my own mistakes and learn from them, then live my life by how someone else tells me to. I feel like those mistakes are more valuable than anything else I could learn by playing it safe. I want to continue the friendship, but I am a bit conflicted internally about how to begin a conversation about this... And I'm not sure if a conversation would be the best course of action at this point. What are you hearing when you read this experience? Do you have any thoughts about something I could do to bridge the gap between my feelings in a way that makes sense? I would love to find a way to just be open and own the fact that holding my own is something I struggle with, without making it into a manipulation to get her to stop doing that. The last thing I want is for people to 'walk on eggshells' around me, but it is a boundary of mine that I didn't realize was until I noticed I felt uncomfortable about it.

  6. Hello there everybody. I'm giving a shout out to all those in my region and anyone else who's willing to travel to where i am so we can start something up! Could even start with one person just setting things up with me, find out what we can do that will benefit all those in the area, to catch peoples interest, etc. I want to make a big difference but in such a subtle way by just being fun and down to earth.
  7. Synchronization Workshop In Vegas April 2017 Hello friends I saw the synchronization workshop with Teal scheduled in April of 2017 in Vegas, I would like to go, but am not completely in love with the idea of going by myself. Just wondering if anyone from the tribe is going, and if you want to get to know each other so we have a base by the time we meet in Vegas! I am in a huge transition in my life, and so at this point I am sending out my intention to meet new friends, have and give support and share moments with other present souls Warmest regards, ~Katie Lee
  8. I would REALLY love to start finding friends on this site. I also have you know that i have big dreams for where I am currently living. Soon enough i'd like to offer my home from time to time for the occasional Teal-Tribe meetup. For every other thing like i this i wanted to create, even in my first highschool.. It never got to fully take off. Never got the proper mentorship, encouragement and the like. Back then it was a sort of big cultural thing, I was about to introduce a type of theater that i wanted to introduce to my school, which was like any typical western private school. every time I got passionate, i just got moved away... perhaps i'm just moving closer and closer to this passion? I do feel in a way as i write this that i'm getting closer to achieving even those things i missed out on when i was a child. Anywho. I REALLY want to make this intentional community thing REAL. I want to make Teal proud!! Let's realize her ideal together! But remember, we've shared her ideals for generations. And now as individuals, we can all become like Gandhi and the many others that have come before and after him, and just purify this world by taking action and doing something with the energies we hold. I want to do this above all for Gaia.. For the infinite one..~~ Much love to all that come across this. I must add though that i came here for just this but not many seem to be offering such things so i will be the one to do so openly. I would love to see more action taking place here.. to do what Teal has wanted initially for this site... I am quite available most of the day so i am ever watchful for those who are in need of help and simply just connection with another who wont judge them Edit: I'm looking for those friendships where you can really do anything together. The kinds of ones that are full of laughter. Forming long lasting mutual bonds, a circle of friends i can really belong to. But more are also welcome to join. The more the merrier.

    I'm stuck in a country that's full of unconscious people. Not much better than where i came from In Canada. I'd like if Teal gave us an energetic look on Landgraaf, Veenendaal, and places within British Columbia: Vernon, Edgewood, Lavington, Enderby. Also, it's like wherever i go, it's like everyone is just so darned asleep or self inflated.. What's the point of expansion if I keep getting flattened and mistreated every which way i go? Why must i go out of my way to just have a meaningful and fun relationship with all outside my door? ( Even people back in Canada are hard to relate to.. even the people i did have as friends are long gone and hardly reachable.. And i'd only be wanting to be with them to try and mend something old that just needs to be let go.. Hell, i even remember people after brief encounters whilst they mat soon forget about me. even if it's moments that were rather embarrassing for me to some degree. ( I don't know where i am going with this anymore but my life has just been so weird, despite all the great things i've experienced during those times when i was super young. But against everything else.. it amounts to nothing and can't be used for much besides being a window of nostalgia. I have luckily managed to get myself out of my past situation but still i cannot cope with anything.. even with things that should be simple with everybody else.. even if you take them to a new country... Although this all seems to be an act between eachothers ego.. even with nice people.. i still freeze up or exude some sort of weird behavior they may or may not have paid mind to etc... I was one of those children that needed to be nurtured, to get the attention Teal has mentioned about in regards to the school systems and stuff. Hell, even the person who was delegated to helping me sometimes with writing stuff into my agenda book back in elementary ditched me and i had to do it on my own and i must say it'd take me forever and not be that neat at all. And it was hell when my mother was trying to teach me over and over how to handwrite... when i liked it better to print. and that was hard enough for me.. i still draw each letter when i write, even at ties i can be fast and smooth and neat. - I also must let you know i suffer from social anxiety and my own versions of post traumatic stress disorder from early points in my childhood.. And I suppose i cause alot of worry and perhaps some sort of disappointment in me and herself for not being able to give me what i need.. ever since about the age of 3 I was already stamped with all sorts of labels.. I love my family so much despite how unconscious they are and brutal at times.. even to this day i feel like i am living a synthetic life..with full consciousness.. even right now i feel like i'm the only person alive with this experience.. It's like i just belong in the worlds of magic and dreams.. i do recall a time when that existed here and anxious to watch it all return.. Because only being to stay in dreams for certain amount of time during sleeptime is like trying to weening a child from the tit.. I feel boundless love within me and deepest knowing but it's from places i can't seem to return to.. - I must note that i must have fractured parts of myself that just left to live in those realities or even versions of earth.. And I don't blame them at all.. and perhaps they are the tethers i have to my homelands... and i'm still not used to this linear time thing either among other things.

    I have painful anxiety. But I didn't realize how bad it really was until I went to an orientation at work yesterday. When I first got there, I was soo stiff and slouched. I tried soo hard to relax but I couldn't. At that point I realized that I didn't feel safe. The environment was safe, however, emotionally I didn't feel safe. My chest was tight and painful, my throat was closing up and I was shaking really bad. And I'm not exaggerating. At that moment, I realized that I have really deep shame that's rooted in me. I've experienced a lot of traumas in my childhood. Being made fun of throughout middle school and high school. Along with covert abuse from my mother and my little brother that eventually had me believing that I deserved to be treated that way. And til this day I still believe that I should be treated that way, because I am bad person. (This makes me want to cry. ) I can't afford therapy. And I need help. I want to believe that I'm worthy and good enough.. And that I'm not a bad person. But it's soo hard when everyone that I'm surrounded by (family and family friends) treat me otherwise. They kick me when I'm down. They talk bad about me when I'm not around. They try to bring me down when I'm happy. They make jokes that aren't really jokes, but are insults disguised as jokes. I could feel completely grounded one minutes, and then the next minute I'm crying because someone ignores me when I talk or they talk over me. I'm fed up. I feel like it's me against my family. If I'm happy, then they get offended. If I'm depressed, they kick me down even further and condescendingly talk to me as if I'm the pessimist of the house. I want to believe that I'm worthy, I want to believe that I'm good enough. I want to live a great life. I want to believe that there are good relationships out there. and I want to live peacefully. ....But I'm starting to loose hope. If you have any advice, opinions, questions, comments feel free to message me or comment below. I look forward to hearing from you.
