One thing I can say to those arrogant people who think they control things is that life has developed from 'simple' (single celled or multi-celled) lifeforms to humans, (and everything they build - buildings, roads, cars, etc.) without the conscious planning of humans, or any other being in the long line of descendants on this Earth.

From before a single plant or tree grew on this Earth, and before any creature walked upon the land, before there was even an atmosphere to breathe and protect the Earth - to today, where there exists a symbiotic system, with a vast, vast array of creatures, plants and other living things, buildings and structures, supporting each other to exist as a system ...

I can tell any arrogant being with certainty -

You did not design this!

You did not plan this!

---

In fact (of course) no human could have planned this because (of course) they did not exist while it was happening!

Today, we feel responsible for life as if it is in our hands for it to continue to exist - but this is false.

Life will continue on this planet regardless of what we do (short of creating a black hole, or other similar event), though the continued existence of humans are uncertain.

---

So humans came to be on this planet without the help of humans. And life came to be on this planet without the help of humans. And so it shall continue (life) with or without the help of humans.


Like bees who are not conscious of the fact that they also serve to proliferate the great many valuable trees and plants of this Earth, so we also may not be conscious of our part in this system that is greater than ourselves.

Just because someone is not on the same path as you does it means they are lost?

Judge and be judged.

For all we know the human animal may be designed to blow up earth with nuclear bombs to create a new galaxy. Who could possibly know?

Your wrong. If I didn't exist there would be no universe. Deal with that.

Who are you talking to? Genetical designers, like Monsanto?
We need to modify life, if we want f.E.: Terraform other planets. Mars comes to mind.

Bees are dying out, just as a side note. Is that what you wish for the future of mankind, or wouldn't you agree we have to bring everything we can to the table, in order to
1.clean up the mess we already made &
2.improve what mother nature gave us, because maybe, that's what humans are here for, and we got that wrong with all the "no science" sayers, but what the "creator" actually ment when it said, subdue the Earth...

Everything is in perfect balance. There is neutrality, yet the individual fears for it's life. The one that feels that it is not life itself will continue to seek immortality in time (which is mind).

Everything that appears to be happening is arising from the source of all that is - can it be said to be wrong?
The individual will always look at the world and think it needs fixing - but it is only ever really trying to protect itself.
When it is realized that there is nothing individual, that life is just happening and that it is just a movie showing, the feeling of 'it all being wrong' will lift and there will be wonder and delight.

If only I knew how, maybe I should read all the helpfull threads about the site. Now I know I'm not the brightest but this site could have been made easier.


It probably is easy once you get the hang of it. Still I am like: ????

On-topic: Why do you claim people being arrogant acting as if they "know" stuff and then in a way claim to "know" stuff yourself. If anyone claims to know things for 100% certainty and they make a thread about it and they were wrong, was it a wrong thing to do? Is the thread or the original poster's idea the most important impulse? Or was the interaction with other people more important?
So what if the person was wrong all the time, he would have sensed pride and then fell.. Like angels fall from time to time, just to get back up.. So if all those negative things become a positive thing and he becomes actually a complete whole being is the infamous thread or idea then negative? Or was it a key towards an higher understanding? And what if he misled alot of people in believing him and those people began searching for answers of their own, they could have fell too, but maybe they then somehow found the right answers?

Who knows, in a world of unlimited possibilities I try not to judge anyone or anything just because I have an idea, wich could be in fact wrong in itself, therefor doing the same of what you accuse other people off.

Understanding is a key to alot of doorways... People should try it more (I am speaking generally, I do not wish to offend anyone)

Even this very post could be wrong in so many ways, but eventually make a right. Or vica versa, but if it were otherwise and it would cause harm, would that harm in itself be not just a lesson from wich we can learn?

He does not mean that he is living in an utopia, but he has a perspective wich may give him a feeling as if he were living in an utopia, this does not mean he's not capable of critical thinking or experiences negative emotions.

Think in a broader way. Things can be #, but if you like # or you understand # you may have peace with #. That does not mean you don't know it's #.

I don't like this world either, but I enjoy life.

Okay. Can totally not argue with that. I try to be happy at least five tiimes a day myself, that doesn't explain, how you can justify the sentence: "Everything is in perfect balance"
Doesn't work. At the point Zero everything is in balance, but ....
I don't know, explain, if you can what is in balance?
The oceans, the air, society, what? And how are things so very different there than where I live?
Different planet? Parallel matrix? State of utter and complete denying reality for the sake of personal peace?
Ignorance is bliss, or what?

We cannot say for certainty that things are in Balance because we do not simply know the future. But read my post in above...

If things must get #ed up to eventually become something glorious? Is that not balance?
Ofcourse I agree, things are not balanced, not even close, but you don't know if it is neccesarry for a certain evolution to be this way...

Again, since we don't know the future we cannot tell for certain.

But if you find peace with this and accept that tomorow anything can happen and that the world and universe has unlimited possiblitys you may find peace with the concept of balance.

Like explained somewhere else: Good deeds and bad deeds are like throwing stones in the water, the both cause ripples wich eventually will interact with eachother, in such a good deed can have a bad result and vica versa, in essence this says that good and bad in the way we know at a "small conciousness level" (I don't like to define it like this but I did it anyway) does not excist.

If bad results in good is it still bad? or is it only bad if it was intended bad, but then still if it had good results was it bad? Maybe the one doing the bad deed thought about it later and changed in a way that is good? So many possibilitys, so many ripples...

We don't know the future, but I feel in my heart we can expect glorious things... Do most humans not only change when the hurt they are feeling is so great that the hurt of change is less than the hurt they are feeling at that moment.

In a way... But again , so many possibilitys.. You can have endless discussions about this really.... Perspectives...

Please when you are finished with your magic lamp, do lend it to me! Ive few wishes of my own. Because you cant possibly expect or even hope for this to happen globally, only a djinn could. People that are at the point to be aware of that much will always be the minority, a tiny one at that.

Like bees



This op is amazing in a way because, it states something blatantly obvious (for a few) which will fall on deaf ears (and empty heads) since it is a fact too important but too out-of-the-current-box and depressing to be considered, while the op also contains many wrong assumptions on a few other very important matters.

Its a simple a truth but requires much effort to be accepted even by one. But it is a necessary step if one wants to evolve mentally..
