    • (0:21:16) Donyale: I’ve never been single since college. Why weren’t you single? I feel safe. Why didn’t you enjoy the moments alone? Life didn’t feel as robust…

  7. (1:05:12) JLP: Nobody learned anything in relationships. It’s impossible. Only when you overcome the relationship and get to know you. We learn practical things, but not about life on our own. Emotions are death, not life. There’s no 
    • (1:07:29) The curse of the fall: Pain in childbirth. Original sin. Kids aren’t cute / wonderful. 
  8. (1:08:26) Biblical Q: Are you a pitiful person? Anthony answers… (1:09:20) Yes, woe is me. Feeling, victimhood. Not now, I can see. Anthony again… 
    • (1:11:36) Doing better… learning to watch it like a movie 
      • (1:12:45) Doing the Silent Prayer? No, school… 
    • (1:14:09) Marissa: Yes, but others are more pitiful. I’m depressed, in partial remission. I’d zone out. (1:16:00) Alissa (sp) yes. Hard to let things go I see as good. There are no good people in your life. (1:18:34) Are you thinking you’re pitiful at the time you are? 
    • (1:18:46) Lijie: Pitiful, undeserving, but I am deserving. 
      • (1:20:05) (4ab) You’re deserving of love? Why? I hope so, I wanna go to heaven after I die. Why not go to heaven while you live? 
      • (1:22:43) (4c) Where’s Job now? He’s in the Bible (funny). Everybody wannabe Job
    • (1:23:05) Donyale: I’m not. Manipulative, wanting attention. Were you ever? I thought circumstances were pitiful. 
    • (1:26:11) Is correcting someone pitiful, rather than letting them suffer? Imposing is pitiful.

    • (1:27:35) Raymond… I don’t know how

    • (1:36:53) Franky… 
  10. (1:37:39) Hands of people who overcome being a pitiful person?

    • (1:40:20) British gal: Let my ego die, not listening to thoughts, praying, being still, aware, watching. 
    • (1:40:44) Nick: I realized everyone’s going through the same thing. No one’s better. 
  11. (1:41:18) (5) JLP on BQ: Overcome your state of being: Anyone who gets sad, glad, gossips or listens, up and down in time, overreacting to situations (it’s not happening to you, but you think it is), anyone who thinks they’re good or bad, have done good (sorry, Joel), shy, pretends not to be, puts up a front, pretends they know, has fear, doubt, loneliness, looking outside for any peace, tries to get love or anything from anyone else. 
    • (1:43:47) (5a) JLP: No one has a right to be mad at anyone for any reason…. When you join teams, like the war, personal attacks on both sides, pitiful people. Can’t admit to self I don’t know and leave it blank  …. Pounding what you think you know…. All thinking erases. Layers and layers of thoughts. Stay present: Your only job. The Kingdom of Heaven is in the present. 
    • (1:50:10) You’re not guilty of anything you’ve ever done. Stay with it, work on it, see what’s going on with you. Don’t be afraid to let things out here happen. See how you feel about someone not liking you, about your wife or husband wanting to leave, or cheating. You don’t have to be nice to try to keep them. If you lose all your children, you’re not moved, God is with you. Stop letting Satan tell you you’re a sinner. Unwilling to forgive, loved playing God. 
  12. (1:52:47) Feedback: What do you understand from that? Above all things, get an understanding. You want the intellect to die. Psychologist PhD lady got it hearing Jesse. You want an understanding. 
    • (1:53:49) Lijie: Pride keeps me from God. An idea made me glad. As states of being 
    • (1:55:47) Young black man… (1:56:23) (5b) The worst thing you can do is not stay with prayer. 
    • (1:57:18) Young wife, mother
    • (1:58:18) JLP: Everything you’ve done has been vanity
    • (1:59:26) The Devil hates laughter. It feels good to laugh. Don’t identify with it as “I,” let it pass though. Don’t go looking for a laugh. Let it pass. 
  13. (2:03:52) Who gave your impression of your mother / grandmother? (New BQ)
