Hi Ryan, on your old account, it's not here any longer as this is a second forum launched in 2011.
Another perspective on the 7 years, it is mostly a time-frame but as many of us have realized, it definitely doesn't meant that after 7 years one is done with it, it's simply a first-set of years wherein through constant and continuous application one gets to a point of stability, self awareness and self-direction - however time in itself doesn't make the days count but who we are within each of those days and our application of it. So this process is certainly not measurable though years I'd say, but more through the actual living application of the corrective process which is where the real deal of establishing self-honesty exists. So that's for your consideration.
Being without a computer 2 years.... wow that's something I haven't gone through at all, would be cool to know why that happened as well.
The 'falling' in this process is something that I suggest also looking at. I was translating some interviews about weakness by the Atlanteans
and there they explain how we create these polarities of 'falling' in/giving in/giving up and how we create our own 'falling' starting points to then get back up again, which only perpetuates the 'fall' instead of rather assessing what is required to be changed and how. So I recommend those to get further perspectives so that you can begin looking at any judgments, experiences that may come up when it comes to your process, falling or points you haven't been able to yet align/correct. And also looking at the comparison to others that have remained here throughout the time, I mean each one has a very specific process so what I would see here is most important in your case is to assess how you have supported yourself or not throughout the time since you got acquainted with the material here, which are the points you still have to work on - which is what we all do here anyways - and so simply walk along with us.
There's sometimes the perception that because you were not present in forums or else that 'you didn't walk process' but process is here for everyone, whether people are aware of it or not is another story, what Desteni provides is the set of tools and support such as this platform to cross-reference, support each other and walk as a group since we do now how tough it can get at times when doing this, which is essentially creating ourselves based on living principles, which is something we have never ever done here. Therefore, it's cool that you can be here again and cross-referencing your writings as well as reading others, that's the point of support that is available for all here, so share.
Cool you're almost done with DIP Lite, definitely a necessary rehash in your case and getting yourself ready to start DIP Pro then.
About the sleeping point, were the 3 hours mark something that 'happened' to you before Desteni or is this something that begun after you read about the 4-6 hours of sleep. That's also a consideration for when you share more about your situation.
