Disclaimer: this post contains discussing feelings of sexual urges, and has been tagged as NSFW.
I'm a guy who's 21, and is in nursing school.
Recently, as I've meditated and learned to come into the feelings in my body, I can feel when I am present that I am more in touch with my more raw "animalistic" side and feel more physically attracted to people. The other week I took THC and was in basically a meditative state with a girl I met on Tinder, and I felt much more alive, in my body, and a much more physical sense of power in a way.
I also feel that as I exercise and meditate I feel more "awake" or "alive" and feel the urge to do things physically that are fun or competitive just for the sake of doing so, in a way being more in touch with my masculine side of aggression, strength, and the desire to compete, whereas previously in my life (athletically and sexually) I've been less dominant or aggressive, more calm and compassionate, and more in my head and disconnected from my feelings in that way.
I was wondering if feeling more in-tune to the almost "animal" side of us is normal? And also if it is how that works or is thought to function? If there is something about the modern world or our thinking brain that disconnects us from some of our more raw urges that can be a healthy part of our lives?
I know normally meditation and psychedelics put people more in touch with their spiritual and/or compassionate sides, and I feel it does that for me too, but I find it makes me feel more awake to sensations I have pushed down or ignored as well such as sexual desire and physical aggression. And then I feel more awake and alive even when I'm not high or meditating since I am more awake to them and aware of them.

2021.12.05 20:43 MattMoose23 What to meditate on and why
Hi dear friends, hope your practice is going well for you.
I have increasingly felt like asking my community, what I could or should be meditating or focusing on.
I can easily drop into a state of calm and aware focus these days. That's great. But then there arises what I consider to be the politics of meditation... like, what do I (or anyone) do with this precious state? And for what ends?
As someone interested in Buddhism, the general advice seems to be to cultivate bodhicitta - the dedication to the liberation of all beings. And then, the idea of using meditation analytically, ie. to see deeply into this or that problem, also arises. And so on.
So I'm delighted to be at the forefront of using meditation in a variety of modes, but I guess my question is how best to time-share those modes, if I wish the best for myself and all other beings?

So they have the ressources to give the two first games a fully fleshed out multiplayer game modes. But now for some reason they only have the ressources and development time to a measly two player coop. Why? Where exactly did they moved their ressources towards?

I was just wondering what some people's plans are for the weapons they will use. I never really use the lance or spears in general in dark souls and i am probably going to try them in elden ring. Who else is thinking of using spears or the lance?

2021.12.05 20:43 Colorblind_cl I was thinking of the times when CAPCOM made licensed games and was wondering how a licensed Monster Hunter title would be. Any thoughts?
Something like Monster Hunter: Runeterra or Monster Hunter: Forgotten Realms. In my opinion, so far, the creative team behind Monster Hunter is doing great work, but remember that there are two studios developing MH titles, so maybe it could be an interesting exploration of the genre.
What do u guys think?

While it is ones own choice to forgo parenting or having one's own children please understand that sane parents who love their children do not want your horrible vicious fur baby beasts in our children's faces as we are walking along hiking trails, sidewalks and the like. When you cannot control your hideous animal even on a leash and you lead your predator to a child's face saying "he's friendly" and parents are obviously pulling their children away from you and it offends you perhaps you should ask yourself why. Sane parents don't care if protecting our children offends you!
