If that is possible, I will try to learn as much as I wanted to seek the way of enlightenment which I have yet to succeed.
Going back in time might give me another chance of success.
I think if I were able to turn back the clock there would simply be moments in my life that I would want to experience again. I would spend time with my first dog who I absolutely adored, time with my grandfather on his farm, time sitting and talking with my grandmother and drinking some of her homemade sweet tea, time with my sister at any point when we were doing anything. At this point those moments are out of reach, but if I could turn back time I would go back and experience them just one more time.
I would return to the 1950's when family meant something special and there was a more wholesome attitude and way of life. We still had some growing to do back then, but it was much better than now, even though we now have modern technology, we had all that we actually needed back then to enjoy our lives. The constitution was whole and was respected. People went to church for the right reasons. Sex and perversion were taboo and rightfully so. Our children were not exposed to chemicals in meats and other foods that would harm them and their children in the future. Teachers were respected. Education was the basis of platforms in congress and it was meant and not false. People looked to a brighter future and did not worry as much about national calamities and world destruction by asteroids and sun spots. God was still in schools and public meetings and rightfully worshiped by devoted human beings. The flag was respected for the freedoms that we have and in honor of men who gave up their lives. Love meant something special and not raw sex and explicit commercials on television that exposed our kids to the seamy side of life. More national pride and respect. A dollar was a dollar and not make believe. Life seemed to have more meaning to me back then, and I pray that things will get better if we just try a little harder.
I am with you on this one. I would love to be a 1950's housewife and let the man take care of every thing else. I always had an interest in Marilyn Monroe and the whole JFK situation.
Yeah, the 50s were great... if you were a white male. Anybody else was pretty much screwed. Remember those segregated buses, schools, lunch counters, etc.?
Yeah..you can find negatives about any age, I don't even want to get started on 2012 and in fact I get nauseated., FatFreddysCat
Those were the times, those were the days... you said it all.
I would go back and advise my younger self what I must do to get the life I wanted. I would try to prevent some of the bad things happening and make good things happen instead. Of course, there's the risk from the butterfly effect, but I'd take that chance.
Love the question. Finish university in Houston under a different major and find myself a lot sooner through psychotherapy.

Do you believe in reincarnation or is it just another chance to 'mess things up' again?Do you think the Hindu philosophy of reincarnation is a Master Plan or is it perhaps not as practical as one might assume, at first glance. What's your take?

What is the true purpose of religion/spirituality? To bind us with rules, or to open our hearts and our minds?Where does atheism fit into the above? Does tolerance go hand in hand with enlightenment, and if so, how do we promote enlightenment (in whatever form it takes) over dogmatic...
