Living is not something we do, it is a truth we have to reallize. There is no special incantation that will make it any better, the reallity is that we exist and while it may seem cruel, is a joke played on us by the universe at large. To enjoy it, all one has to do is reallize this and laugh at the joke.
Every great book has a detailed glossary. I am trying to get the reader of my posts to think as an individual that is part of a greater whole. I point out truths and it is up to the reader to read it or accept it as the rantings of a crazy old man.
Agreed. It is a shame that some would take things like what I have just said and turn it into doctrine. They are truths that are as intangible as "I". Life is intangible and because of this people tend to see absolutes that don't neccesarily exist.
To add to this, I would tell you that the main reason for believing in religion and God is for fear of dying. It is the most impoverished and vulnerable that fall into the pseudo-comforting arms of religion.
Hope is something that humans grasp for, if there was no hope, they would kill themselves.
In that respect, I can understand any vulnerable person's belief in something irrational if that keeps them alive.
For anyone who believes in organised religion and their descriptions of God, there is only shame
Those that don't fear death are crazy, those that fear life, find religion. One must find it within themselves. latching on to a belief or a book, will not lead one to truth. If one is to believe in God, it should be a belief from within and should come as a form of truth. Fearing life is obsurd, fearing death is fearing the inevitable. Both are happenings of the universe and should be accepted as such, then such fears will slide away.
To fear death is natural - nothing is crazy about it. Animals fear it, human too. Death is the end of life and we do not want it. Life is such a miracle, we should enjoy it, we should get up in the morning with hope to have another day full of wonderful adventures and happy encounters. Some lucky ones live like that. Most of us do not. We fill our lives with misery, worries,sicknesses, hatred, anger, all kinds of problems, some of those we create ourselves. We apply to somebody upstears who supposed to know better and solve our problems. Poor creatures! No one can solve your problems but you, because YOU ARE YOUR OWN GOD, and you have to learn how to relay on yourself - your knowledge, wisdom, experience. You are not born with it but you are born with abilities to learn, to be wise, educated, knowledgeable and kind,helpful,forgiving as long as you are alive you can be all that. A wonderful unique human being - you.
Thus it is as I have been saying. There is no special technique or incantation that will make it any easier. We must just accept it as it is and enjoy it as much as possible. There will be pain and there will be desire, but these are only facettes of life that we have been alluded to. I have been conditioned to see mysery and I can override the conditioning, but only if I truly want to.
Since my early childhood I've been conditioned to live in constant fear (fear of a system), misery (anything can happen to you why be merry?), self-denial and sickness. My mom lived like that and I've been taught to live like that. It took me many years and lots of bumps from life to learn to live differently. I hope I do live differently now.
People not fear to live. People fear to be sick. People fear to lost of their loved ones. People fear to die. From incantation couldn't get the life success. Only right practice can achieve the success and happiness for life. It is true this life is playing a big game with us. if you could not understand it properly and not taken right action in urgency you also will be a victim of this marvelous game.
Generally, Christians and Jews seem to regard Muslims as too out of the ordinary yet, they seem more God-fearing. Among other things, they seem more thankful to "Allah" by praying morning and evening, and...
Everyone dies, but not everyone livesWe have pushed Death away from Life, the dying away from the living - all in order to impose the illusion of control on the uncertainty of change. We have lost touch with the natural...

It has always struck me as odd that "God fearing" is considered a good thing. I was raised Christian. It is my understanding from my studies and conversations with others that God is all about love and...
I believe this simply because it appears that everyone is looking for salvation. They are so afraid of life that thier only choice is to look into what appears more pleasing. So what can be more pleasing than having to...
