I have had my share of philosophy guys, and I must speak the thing in your face- you got little idea of how things revolve in reality. Check your pulse, and consider the fact, you are drugged with religious ideas. Give a heck, happiness is the only wisdom. Stop that cry for enlightenment; it's your imagination of a bum.
You still don't get it. I am not religious by any means, I'm not even realy Buddhist. I'm just following a path that I've laid out for my self. I want to be able to see the "trees for the forest". If all I do is focus on how I feel about things and forget to include the feelings of other's, then I have totally missed the point. I share this moment with everything, so therefor I must be mindful of everything. That includes people, places and things.
Hey Robert, I did not mean you personally. I actually see a lot of folks here, who seem to be suffering in an illusive-hell for nothing. Was it all about- pain?
Get happiness. That's wisdom.
It's heretics that brings meaningful change. No one gives another. We make it. We have to. Isn't that reality?
Reality is also sadness, suffering and pain. In accepting totally, we take the sting out of it.
Happiness can be produced. Here is the element. We can *make* it happen. It's a by-product. Most of the grief is man-made, get the fact and ponder over the deprived.
That will not stop me from grieving and feelings of loss or sadness. They are the polarity, which makes us human and whatever else we are. I must accept the unknown, so that I will be able to act accordingly to the feeling.
Let me assert the fact once more, which is, most of the sadness is man-made. We can't cure death, that's another thing, though I can not say what solution may future bring. But those other *blues* are human productions.
When my mother died, she died on thanksgiving day. I had to accept the loss and move on or that moment in my life would have destroyed me. I was totally insane for 2 long years. I drank and drugged and went through all sorts of religion trying to find happiness. It was not there. I had to realize that it was an unavoidable aspect of life to suffer. I am caught between sweet and sour, bliss and pain. As salt and pepper are separate, they taste better together. If I am to know any true happiness, I must also know true sorrow.
The basic premise of Buddhism is happiness. Personally I find happiness to be very unproductive. I could have been perfectly content all my life and no nothing.
thing is people are not thankful anymore for life. Whatever religion you choose it doesn't matter. None have seemed to get it right anyway. You would have thought after 9-11 people would be happy to be alive, instead they choose to lay in pity people offer them. Be greatful life is very short!

why do people find it so hard to believe there is a God? or that there is a supernatural realm? yet we here about demons and supernatural activity and feel a kind of natural drawing towards these things and I guess we dismiss it because we fear the unknown... yet our spirits know its real!!! anyone...

That's the typical Sam Harris argument. How does suffering negate God's existence? Maybe He's just watching. It doesn't mean He doesn't exist and for anyone to bring up suffering as proof of no God is indication of a logical fallacy.

Okay, if God does not give you more than you can handle, why is my plate overflowing?

Do you think things are changing for the better or for the worse?War, depression, no jobs, hunger, prices skyrocketing, is this a good thing? Are we heading for something that will be better; or are we heading for more of the same?

Can there be happiness without sadness? Pleasure without pain? Peace without war?
