    This feeling. Do you get it?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Cicero, Dec 14, 2007.

    It's unexplainable, and the only way to get a vaguely-near-accurate description is mostly based off of odd paradoxes that I also cannot explain. It's a good feeling, but it's much more than that. It's like you're in love, but you don't know who you're in love with. You're grooving to music, but no music is being played. You have a vast amount of hope, but you don't know what you're hoping for.

    I can't explain, and the more I try the vaguer it gets. I'm not high. Does anyone ever get this feeling? I used to get it every once in a while, but I've been getting it a whole lot lately.

    No, it's not that. Or either I've never known what happiness was, but I'm pretty sure I have. Some happiness is in there, though.

    When that happens are you drinking anything with caffeine in it? It is a bit of a hyper feeling?
    I get that when I drink lots of caffeine or get lots of sugar. I dont act silly or anything just motivated and happy, and a bit foggyish.

    wonder if it is the same thing

    It's more of a humble feeling really. Iknow what you are tryuing to say, I get the same feeling. It is very hard to explain though. It is an unusual and yet very comfortable feeling. The only way I can describe it is it is like a very humble feeling in a sense. Other wise I really can't explain it at all.

    That doesn't sound humble to me.

    Haha.

    I love that feeling when you sort of phase out of reality for a bit and everything is sort of in slow motion and you can't focus on anything and when you try to it's like a foggy dream. It's weird when it happens and I want to know what causes it.

    This feeling: It's falling in love, but there is no object of love.

    It's flawless.

    I think I know what you mean. Like, you're in love with the world. You want to dance for no reason. If a bum came up to you at that very moment and asked you for change, you would gladly give it instead of lying about not having any.

    Yeah, I feel like that sometimes. Usually it's when I'm about to get out of work on Friday night.

    I believe it is called joy. Joy is deep... way down deep. Happiness is on the surface. "I am happy I saw my friend" vs "I am joyful to be alive". I believe joy lives way down in the bottom of our souls and longs to be awakened... and ever so often we dip into it and pull some of it out. The more we dive into its depths, the more we can bring to the surface, the more we can enjoy it day to day. And it is something that we don't even know we are longing, diving, living for... it just is. I truly believe that is the ultimate difference between happiness and joy. Joy is forever, eternal. Happiness is right now.

    I think it's the feeling of loving life.

    The feeling...it's kind of like you're really satisfied with what you've done and has happened and also really hopeful for what is going to happen. Eager to live and enjoy more. Grateful for the enjoyment. It feels like you're savouring your own private theme song for life that no one else can hear.

    Don't worry, I'm not high either.


    By the way, who lies to bums that they have no money? Just spare the guy a bit at least. Or pretend like you didn't see him. Not only does it make you look stupid, it's a blatant lie because you must have something. If you've only bills and can't ignore the guy then just say something about not having change. It's slightly better.

    I hardly ever have cash. I almost always only have credit.

    I only ever carry enough change for either dinner at school or bus fare for work, other than that its all on card simply because its easier.
