    I'm not a Buddhist and care a lot about material matters, but I do meditate daily. I managed to overcome my dysphoria completely, but decided to continue transitioning anyway just because I'll be happier that way. So basically for euphoria's sake.

    Nothing really changed in regards to my plans for the future, in fact I'm having FFS next week and SRS in December. The main difference is just that I'm much happier now that I don't hate any part of my body anymore, and feel at peace with who and what I am. But that doesn't mean surgery won't still be an improvement.

    The whole lesson of Buddhism as I understand it is that you take things for what they are and without judgement you can reduce suffering. Buddhism isn’t about having an internal anti trans dogma.

    Zen meditation is not a one fits all cure for mental discomfort. I practice zazen daily and from experience, it will improve your life, but not in the way that you expect.

        It depends on your initial condition. I was very depressed and alone. Through it I was able to see more clearly the toxic environment I was submerged. I also started taking the focus away from myself and noticed the suffering of other people around me. Helping them allowed me to connect to other people, easing my loneliness. It turns into a virtuous cycle. But the experience varies, depending on the circumstances.

    Yes and it was a complete and utter failure. I slipped into feminine mantra shit really quickly and basically got so in touch with my "inner feminine spirit" that it grew strong enough to overpower my animus. Convinced myself that fucking my ass and wearing girls clothing was some kind of spiritual exercise that was venting that energy but I just got more and more into it till I gave up on the philosophy shit all together. I can still play a singing bowl pretty well though

    you cannot cure gender dysphoria

    If you stop having desires and stop interacting with people then you won't feel the pain anymore.

    So it's really just a repression method, all you have to do is give up all that makes life worth living and live in the abstraction of thought.

      Yes, this is what I desire. I want to detransition and enjoy the benefits of being cis (male) like being able to have a job and talk to people and stuff because I can't pass

        if you don't feel good being a cis man it won't work, simple as that. as the anon said, you have to give up everything enjoyable in life and stop interacting with other people. you'll be a shell of your real self

          Sitting under a tree and meditating for the rest of your life doesn't seem so bad

          That's not true. It's all about accepting things as they are and letting go of attachments. Sometimes that attachment very well may be trying to live and act as a man even if you don't feel you are one. Buddhism can very well cause you to troon out because your suffering results from your attachment to trying to live as your birth gender.

        you can't really live a normal life like that.
        boddha didn't live a normal life.

        the hard thing is interacting with others, and as social animals we need to interact with others so you can't cut that off completely.
        If you have a job that doesn't require you to see or talk with people or you are rich and can live the neet life I guess you could do it. Replace the interaction with humans with interaction with animals, go out in the park, raise bees and birds, that sort of stuff, and limit, but not erase completely, the interactions with humans.
        But if you do that there's no reason not to do that on hrt and feel a bit more comfortable in your body.
        And it won't be a happy life anyway. Just a way to limit the pain.

    fuck the slow-mo enlightment, unless thats youre pace of course. doctors hate it - but theres' an african penis ritual for this. you simply need to dive head-first into the lowest circle of hell and pluck the fucking devil out, then play some sabaton with him. Link your Sapient Dream. its not that hard to find out. if you're still feeling tranny after going through ego death, it wouldn't be a big surprise. you're already looking within as it is. look no further, or look the furthest.

    you can’t cure mental problems, do you think you can curse schizophrenia with meditation? no? then what tells you you can cure gender dysphoria with it? you are born with it and you’re going to die with it, be glad transition is an option.
