Speaking with a world-wide view, much is lacking within humanity to progress - we stumble and fall, then get up and do it again. What is lacking there?

If you blinded by the world there can never be peace.

One must find out what is real!

Look to see what is real - does imagined others lack make your life miserable? Shouldn't there be concern for ones own unhappiness first? How can you stop making the world an unhappy place if you have not found peace/contentment?

The movie of life is just doing what it does - does it upset you?

How can one find peace and contentment while others suffer? Through lack of love and compassion?

This movie needs a rewrite.

Well if you are not content you will make others suffer and you will feel that and that will make you suffer.

Yeah - it is bad and should be good!!
That belief is living a hellish life.
Right here and right now is what there is - forget labels for a minute - it is not good or bad - there is nothing lacking.
As soon as concepts like good and bad happen and are believed in then off you go - out of paradise.

What if it was realised that everything is unfolding perfectly and no one had to do a thing - that all is being done and you just witness the movie.[

It is bad when some acquire wrongly-perceived Earthly pleasures or riches at the expense of others less fortunate in societal systems that work for the few, not for all.

Divine spiritual riches/pleasures have been supplanted with beliefs and twisted concepts of what is good and what is bad. The divine is good and loving, and what is lacking is a collective consciousness to look outside oneself at others' plights and realize everyone wants or needs change for collective good.

At the end of the day, the reality is that we are physical beings in a real place which needs to be transformed and manipulated to aid us in bettering all humanity. What continues to not be lacking? For good men and women to do nothing.

There's no need for research. It's a spiritual book not a mathematical one.

Not for all. And even from Robert's tape, he seems to be seeking happiness, therefore, it must be lacking.

Did you hear Robert speaking in the video?? I listened again and did not hear him say he is seeking anything.

He speaks of how to find happiness at the end of his spiel. It may be that you hear one thing and I another, but that is subjectivity at play.

At the beginning he states that it is blasphemy to believe that you need something or that something is wrong with you or the world.

An odd contradiction.

True happiness cannot be found because it isn't anywhere - it is where you are but it is veiled by the belief in other. The thought says 'There are people suffering somewhere else so I cannot be happy' - just that thought is enough to keep the peace that surpasses all understanding at bay if believed.
If you need the world to be a better place to be happy then 'happiness' will hide. If you need nothing to change then happiness will come out from hiding.
No thing is needed to be happy - some thing is needed to keep it away.

Around the 15 minute mark on the video, he suggests we find compassion and mercy (using the word find is suggesting a lack exists) to achieve a goal (that goal being lacking in the moment), then goes on to explain how happiness is to be achieved (again, suggesting something is lacking and can be found).

It is more about accepting our physical reality and others' experiences within this perceived reality as true and not divide oneself from this collective experience.

Have you divided yourself from yourself though, by believing that you can know something outside yourself?
If the thought 'I cannot be happy if there are others suffering' is believed then that just keeps you unhappy.
If you have no thoughts about anything then there is the happiness you are seeking.
Only nothing will make you happy - all the things in the mind conflict.


The mind will always tell you what is missing or wrong - but is there really anything lacking?

It is the belief in lack which makes one unhappy - but has anyone ever really checked to see if there is anything lacking?

The choice to ignore the suffering of others' is not the road to happiness for me.

But who is really suffering??

The only thing that you cannot deny is your own existence - if your existence is suffering then surely that needs sorting out first. How effective can you be at removing suffering from the world if you are in the same condition. Look at it this way - if I was suffering and wanted a cure for my suffering I wouldn't go to get relief from suffering from someone who cannot cure even themselves.
