Beautiful lbl. That is some qoute!


OK.
Isn't Nietzsche the one who said that god was dead?
freddy's nightmare
nihilism

FWIW...
I took to living a minimalistic lifestyle too...
Would I trade it for a vault filled with gold?
Absolutely not!

It's a hard path/road ahead but totally worth it.

I don't think money, nor poverty makes happiness.

You can be rich and happy. You can be dirt poor and happy. It's about embracing life with all is ups and downs.

Just to comment on my reaction to this post:

The OP doesn't exactly do a great job explaining or expounding upon what he means - and his invocation of Jesus Christ may trigger a lot of people to become irritated and not want to 'reward' the OP with a star or a flag - and indeed, this is my impulse as well.

For me, this sort of response is intellectually brutish: it derives from a reflexive "my way of thinking is better than yours", and helps fuel the irritation response.

By recognizing where this response derives, my brain-mid establishes a more coherent relationship to the OP's efforts: not particularly developed, and invoking a particular religious motif that excludes anyone who doesn't subscribe to that ideology - but for the most part, isn't it in my interest to promote the sort of thinking and feeling that helps us better understand one another so that we wont reflexively introduce stupidity and mindlessness into our interpersonal atmosphere? The OP's motivation to make this thread comes from a pure place, and so I'd like to honor that need.

To find true peace you must first kill your higher self.. only then will you discover your true self.

The points made in your post are certainly valid in their logic...but there are certainly plenty of humans that have sought to maximize their share of the pleasures of this life. So in light of that fact....would it not be reasonable to assume that some humans would be called to deny themselves those pleasures...so that each polarity might be developed equally (within the whole of humanity ) ?

And if it is true that consciousness exists as a fractal construct. ...would it not be reasonable to assume that one man's victory or development is accredited to the whole of humanity consciousness? So that whether we live in want or abundance each of us forges our own piece of the great puzzle ? So that the one great man (next fractal level ) is complete in all things.

Just a random thought, could mean something, or nothing at all. Do birthdays/ numbers play a significant role in our development? Example: me being born on 12/25 and feelibg weird about it?

I often wonder where the people who are stuck fighting for oligarchs end up.
Some people are wired for fighting ,it's never an intent of evil or service to self ,yet the standard concept of HEAVEN seems WRONG as well..Hell may have it's places for men who have dishonored their own humanity but I highly doubt THAT sin nor any have bought me THAT ticket.

STILL want to know what a demon looks like ...

Maybe when a person is suffering, they should embrace that state and learn from it. If I am reading you correctly OP, I agree that suffering and pain are one of the greatest instructors this reality has to offer.

Humans are the only species that feels that there is something missing, something lacking. A belief in something other than what there is arises in the human form and this is the cause of suffering. Denial of what is in favour of stories about how it should be - full of what isn't leaves one feeling lacking.
This that is here now as it is, is complete and whole.

Well, I suppose that depends on if they're fighting for evil consciously, or if they think they're doing the right thing. And also their past record of deeds.

I mean, one life is really such a small drop in the grand scheme of things.. Most people are "lukewarm"..

Mm, it's true. Some people are warriors.. either genetically or in their very spirit. And I agree, this is a category beyond evil and good.

I suppose this all depends on what kind of view of the afterlife and such one has. I find the mainstream Christian perspective limited and false. One life and then hell or heaven for an eternity doesn't really make much sense to me. I find it somewhat childish when compared to other perspectives which are more coherent logically.

Either way nothing lasts forever.. even the higher planes are consumed and destroyed eventually according to the Hindu cosmology.

You want to know what a demon looks like.. A million different ways, a dark figure with a skull like face, simply a dark figure or any variety of ugly and horrible ways of looking.

Either way you'll get your chance to find out soon. We only have a few years left now and you're one of the people that are fated to survive the collapse.. at least initially.

Personally I wonder how bad karma a person like Hitler would get.. or someone that blew up a whole planet.. Because that person didn't just kill an entire planetary population but he also killed the planet itself.. A planet that is alive and has been evolving for billions of years. All of that ruined. How bad would that karma be?

And how about doing something of great evil or great good that would continue to influence people for a thousand years or longer? I mean that must be the jackpot right. You invent penicillin or cure cancer. How far does this karma reach? Does it almost count as if this guy personally saved all of these people? Does he get some kind of karmic royalty fee for every life saved?

I mean, karma gets pretty much infinitely complex once you start thinking about it practically.

Either way you'd want to be an older spirit.. there's more freedom in choice as far as incarnations go. You can try to position yourself to be of great assistance to humanity and then you reap the karmic rewards.. I mean, Jesus is probably still balling in heaven right now 2000 years later for all of the good # he did.

There's a lot of places to end up in to be fair.. but I think most reincarnate fairly shortly after their death, after a while of staying either in purgatory or some heaven.

My enlightenment levels are still incredibly weak so my understanding is very limited. I'm mostly concerned with necromancy and death magic.. I didn't care about developing empathy in this life as they wanted me to incarnate my demon form for the end times. Maybe I'll change later if a good enough woman comes around and makes me her project.

You needn't worry of hell though, if you were worried that is.
