If you cold be the conquer of any one thing what would it be?
My name is Connor and I have been informed that it comes from a Gaelic term meaning conquer; yet I am unsure of this. Yet I sometimes contemplate what indeed I would want to be a conquer of? I am thinking perhaps death or evil; however, I am interested in reading your opinions...
There are many things I'd like to conquer--although if I think about it--I guess all these things have already been conquered on my behalf through Christ. I just need to agree and receive and live from the place of the conquered life. Otherwise living life trying to conquer things that in the flesh alone cannot be conquered leads to weariness and frustration and more.
One emotion that I experience often is frustration--I would love to experience the conquering of frustration.
I believe names have purpose so if that is what your name means--then this is a good topic for you to ponder. :-)
I would conquer the "Pit of Despair" which is my eldest daughter's bedroom! LOL
I love this, it makes so much sense. If I interpret this correctly (and that is indeed suspect) you are referring to the internal battle in all of us of our 2 entities?
I suppose it's how you define it I was thinking of the 'I', that demands so much attention, the ego?
The same answer, in Buddhist terms, would not be about the ego, but simply about having any self-image or self-centered idea at all. One who conquers the self simply lives naturally, caring for self and others equally.
Of course, the whole concept of 'I', brings up the question, what is the 'I', that has this self perception.
Yes, in both Buddhism and Hinduism, we use meditations asking "What am I?" and rejecting any answer in words until the illusion of a self is conquered and the nature of reality becomes clear.
The Buddha had ten titles. One of them was "Conqueror of Afflictions." I like that. To put an end to suffering - my own - and show the to all the way to conquer their own solutions.
So, I guess I'm like Frodo. To destroy the ring that holds all the evil in the world. That would be cool.
And Frodo, Aragorn, and Gandalf are all very clearly expressions of the servant, King, and Risen Christ. It has been done for us, and has to be done again by each of us. That is what, to me, it means, to accept salvation.
May we conquer our afflictions, each and all.
I am a procrastinator. I wait until the last minute in many areas of my life. While I make my deadlines and appointments, it feels like such a major challenge. If I could conquer something in my life, it would be procrastination!
I'd want to "conquer" the achievement of understanding. We live in a universe driven by science, we understand quite a bit but there is so much more out there we can learn. You could look at this as a simple journey for knowledge or journey for the truth.
Please don't take this as an heretical argument but I believe in science and God at the same time. The bible tells us a story when our society was still very young, too young to understand the concepts of the universe around us. Now that we are potentially reaching maturity (I say potentially because only hindsight can really determine if we hit our cultural golden age), we are beginning to learn at an exponential rate. One day we may understand what governs physics in our plane of existence, what came before the big bang, and what gives matter mass.
It is completely possible that it is a Deity that gives us these pieces of universal history, or it might be something more chaotic and random.
In either case, if there is a god, he made us intelligent for a reason, so we shouldn't waste his gift in ignorance but strive to write our chapter on scientific discovery and knowledge for the next generation to build from.
I would like to conquer fear. That tiny questionmark which hovers around and tries to undermine you. Thankfully I was never that good a listener......
Yes indeed a worthy adversary for most; difficult to do, yet some have. If one could not fear death than perhaps one could conquer fear...
I dont fear death at all, but I do fear those I love dying and me losing them. We are such complicated creatures
one simple thing the heart of people around. The best thing one can keep for his life time is love of the people around you. All other are materialistic.
