I can't put my finger on it.

I go through this strange feeling and confusion often, as if my mind is suspended. It's a feeling of being bothered ,knowing that something is not right. Just cannot put my finger on it. Is it something i've forgotten to carry, to say to someone, some pending task and even sometimes when i am working,eating... and find it different as if something is missing or changed.. Do you often feel this way too ?

We all feel this way sometime or other I think.It is the intuition we have inherited from our ancestors through evolution.Some defense mechanism against dangers.I have felt this many times.For instance if I don't feel like driving I can see in the news a terrific traffic snarl in the route I decided to go.There are certain things we can always feel which cannot be explained.I always consider the human being is marvelous product.

I share the same opinion on the defense mechanism and thanks for the example. Yes, the human being is indeed a marvellous product.

This is a feeling of insatiation in life. Even I go through this often. I feel, the fact that I have not lived my days, that I have not done my parents proud and happy and that I could have done so much in life, has always consumed me consciously and subconsciously. So, even with so much happiness, fulfillment and love around, I grope for that few years of the past that had left me accountable. I am still living in the past subconsciously. Even though most of the things we can redo or alter but that time and people do not come back, at the end of the day, it isn't the same. It's more hypothetical! Yours must be a similar situation. Letting go is difficult. The process takes time and always its a feeling of unfulfillment, not right there with the thing we are upto. Having a goal helps and also getting busy with thins we love doing. But first and foremost for the conviction that we can do without this, we are happy, we need to meditate. Alok, its just a matter of time. Just relax, let go, and do the things you love doing. [b]Remember, You are the happiest and I am following you. [/b]

I could not have explained this any better. Yes it's a similar situation and i guess it is a matter of time too. Living in the past unsubconciously is something we have to get control off or we just do not get the joy and happiness out of the special moments in the present. Thanks for the direction Mimpi. We must always be happy and get the best of the moments.

And now as you post 'health benefits of friendship', you must be knowing how you can actually overcome this with company of good friends. You can always count on your friends, don't you? They are amazing in motivating and sometimes giving you the kick start that you weren't getting for long.

Yes, it happens with every body. I also feel sometimes that I had to execute some task, which I appear to have forgotten e.g. making a telephone call to someone or to buy something from the market, which my better half asked me a day before. I try to keep a tab on 'to do' list and go through it, when I find there are many tasks to be completed. If I find I'm not able to recall properly the tasks which I was supposed to do, I just go to an isolated room and close my eyes for few minutes and then try recalling the pending tasks.

Keeping a tab on tasks certainly helps us in planning and making sure that we do not forget things. But there are instances that we feel this way about things which may be missing in our life and can't place it, then it does become a little perplexng i suppose. Thanks for the response dpk.

We need to find the ways and means to come out of confusing state of affairs, otherwise things will not run smoothly.

Yes I do feel this sometimes too. There are occasions where I check, double check and even triple check things and STILL leave the house or the office thinking that there is something that I have overlooked. Nine times out of ten though it ends up being pretty clear that the only thing I have forgotten is my ability to be sane! I am not sure why we get like this though and rather than make an effort to break it down into pyschological influences I think I will stick with blaming it on getting older!

I too go through this at times. Put it down to stress...or perhaps age is catching up....Just close my eyes for a few minutes...try to calm down and think of what is missing....or changed....or forgotton

Trying to keep oneself calm and not getting into a depressing state of mind sure helps. Thanks for the response Mayka.
