Why are we here, what is the purpose of life, what is the purpose of ANYTHING? I don't want to hear life is what you make of it, I don't want to hear just do what makes you happy, I don't want to hear any of the sappy bull$hit, it's fake.

Life is a facade, it's crap, it's a measly existence and a futile struggle for money until we die.

Why do we work during the prime of our lives (18-65) only to live a lesser existence before and after those prime years? Why is everything about money? Why is the entire construct of humanity and modern civilization so pathetic? Why are the scumbags of the Earth wealthy and why do horrible things only happen to good people? WHY IS EVERYTHING ABOUT FRIGGIN MONEY???

Get a job I actually enjoy? I don't enjoy rotting away in an office or doing anything else that's ultimately useless.

Just do things that make me happy? Nothing makes me happy anymore because everything's fake, and besides you still need money to do anything at all. Hell you need money just to live, breathe, and eat.

Why am I so jaded? Because at the bottom line the world isn't fair, it's just one big circus, a giant cluster F*(@. Stupid people get wealthy, good people get poor, and worse.

If your mentality is that life isn't fair, and that I should deal with it, then please don't bother responding, I really don't care to read what you have to say.

Hahaha, I posted something almost exactly the same years back when I first joined. I'm going to try and look it up now.

Oh that is so much crap.

EVE DID US A FAVOR!!!!!!

Eve gave mankind the gift of knowledge. She provided the path for each and every descendant of man the path to Godhood.

Were it not for her bravery and curiosity, you would be nothing more than an ape in a tree.

If I could give any one anything, I would give them knowledge, so that they could learn and grow and be better than what they were destined to be.

Eve was the first hero, The greatest hero, for she looked into the face of ignorance and said, "SCREW THAT!"

We all will be forever in her debt.

Well, it was just a joke...

But anyhow, what knowledge did Eve give us that we didn't already have? The path to Godhood is a little vague to me...

I have a link that will make you feel better for just a little while, you may have seen it before though.

www.youtube.com...

No, its not kittens, jesus, starving children and or funny stuff. Please watch it.

This is the exact reason (we are robots) I didn't look for another job after 3 months of Crappy tire (I'm 28). For me though, I only really have a problem with peoples mindset's, the whole "we don't care what you can do, we care how much experience you've gotten making money for some one else!". I have a problem with 95% of girls who say they don't want a player/lier, yet turn you down when your honest with them. Alot of girls "expect" you to go completely against your nature of truth and honesty. They do this by asking "do you want to go shoe shopping with me, I want to make sure you like the shoes I get", then it turns into an arguement when all the shoes she picks are not to your liking yet you've given constructive ideas!

It almost seems the only way to get ahead is to not care about others at all and or bend to their will/ways, you can't be yourself!

The only way I can cope is building stuff, going fast on the stuff I've made, music and the knowledge that I don't need to know whats going on in the world or how full my email is.

When you feel you are hating everything just compare your situation with someone living in, say, Ethiopia or Zimbabwe. There, it's not about money. It's about survival. There is always someone worse off than you are; always.

God I hate this approach. It sounds so much like 'Suck it up and quit whining'. Cause really, you can keep going forever. For everyone in the world, even those guys in Ethiopia and Zimbabwe, there are people worse off than them. So they should shut up and quit whining too.

I suppose the ladder down has to get to a bottom rung eventually, the one guy who is worse off than everyone else in the world. But really, what does it matter? My problems are the absolute worst problems in my world. And that's where I'm forced to live, in my world.

I'm unhappy. Are other people unhappy? Sure. Are other people more unhappy than me? Probably. Do other people have more of a right to be unhappy than me? Perhaps. Does this deny my of my right to be unhappy? Hell no.

That's too bad you're unhappy. Not everyone is unhappy. Just because you're unhappy doesn't mean that it's inevitable that everyone is or will be unhappy.

Like I said, if you don't like living in luxury then move to the country and live off the land. Maybe you will find happiness in the physical labour needed to survive in this situation. You will have no need of money. Do everything by your own two hands.

Why are we here


To allow our spirit's an opportunity to experience itself. We are a spirits having a human experience, not the other way around.


what is the purpose of life


To hope to remember what your unique spirit's design is meant for. Unfortunately, these days we as children are inundated with other peoples contaminations of truth. We must first unlearn the falsehoods, then we may begin to scratch the surface of existence accordingly.



what is the purpose of ANYTHING?


Clarity reveals a better picture of purpose. Unlearn before you seek timeless truths. If not, those truths have to trudge through crap just to surface. Afterwards, they may stink.



I don't want to hear life is what you make of it, I don't want to hear just do what makes you happy, I don't want to hear any of the sappy bull$hit, it's fake.


It is the decor of the idea only. If you don't put in the work to aim to live altruistically, you will not taste the gems of spirit. Calm down. Focus on patience and being tolerant.


Life is a facade, it's crap, it's a measly existence and a futile struggle for money until we die.


If you see it that way, sure.


Why do we work during the prime of our lives (18-65) only to live a lesser existence before and after those prime years?


Because children of old listen to others contaminated truths of their elders. Be the change you want to see in the world. Free yourself first. Be the example. The rest will find you.


Why is everything about money?


Greed infected all of us. It is an addiction that has no rehab outside of personal fortitude.


Why is the entire construct of humanity and modern civilization so pathetic? Why are the scumbags of the Earth wealthy and why do horrible things only happen to good people? WHY IS EVERYTHING ABOUT FRIGGIN MONEY???


Don't judge a man by his journey but by his destination. Don't point the finger, it is a waste of time. Set an example and empower your eternity.


Get a job I actually enjoy? I don't enjoy rotting away in an office or doing anything else that's ultimately useless.


Then don't. No need to compare yourself to others. Create yourself!!!


Just do things that make me happy? Nothing makes me happy anymore because everything's fake,


Stop looking outward and focus inward. Your position will only rot you away.


Why am I so jaded? Because at the bottom line the world isn't fair, it's just one big circus, a giant cluster F*(@. Stupid people get wealthy, good people get poor, and worse.


"You" be the purity you need in life.

Don't be so tempered. You will be fine. Calm down and think about it with pure thoughts, rather than intolerant ones. You will see the difference immediately.

Happiness is a choice, that's ALL it is.


We are not meant to be happy or rich.
What gave you the impression we are?
The useless media that bombards us with visions of having it all?
What is it all anyway, Being stick thin with a Rolls in the driveway?

Yes, you can pretend to be happy all the time,
as well as convince yourself your sadness is neverending.
Pretending is not real though.
Life is a range of emotions and intelligence.
That reach different levels through all of our lives.
Many different perspectives will force us to change and grow.
The death of a child, a partner, a parent.
Lost loves and health...are all contributing factors.

If you hate everything, you are clinically depressed,
and need to deal with that.

Maybe I will find happiness there. Or maybe I'll find happiness in meditation. Or medication - like the handful that I've tried. Or maybe I'll find happiness in therapy - the handful of therapists that I've found.

Maybe you're right, maybe I will find happiness there. But I've tried so many things so far, I'm not really all that psyched about trying one more thing on the off chance that it will help me where nothing else has.

I actually did consider moving to Tanzania and doing aid work there, but it's just too expensive to actually get there. My point is that nothing works for everyone. And when you've tried a whole spectrum of things, you gradually become enthusiastic when people start saying 'Maybe you should try such and such'.

And I don't believe I ever said that everyone is or will end up unhappy. I simply said that the universe invariably throws us curve balls. Time and time again. And I stand by that statement.

No argument there. I thought you meant the money thing. It does kind of suck that we need to make money if we want to live within today's society. Money is the means by which we acquire our needs and our wants. You could always go Freegan in that respect.

Maybe the key to happiness is to be satisfied when our needs are met, and not to get too upset when our wants go unfulfilled.

I do hope you find a way out of your depression.

Thanks for your kind wishes. They are appreciated. I guess the biggest trick is figuring out what's a want and what's a need. I'd call love and affection a need, but I'm sure lots would call it a want. Maybe that's where I'm getting hung up.

Anyway, nice chatting with you, and again thanks for the kind wishes.

Watch your physical abilities and health go in the dumpster over three years with chronic illness.
Watch everything you worked so hard, so diliigently, and so gladly for go south.
Watch your 401k and savings go bye bye.
Watch your fiance abscond with a 5400 dollar engagement ring and find out from friends she's got a new bo.
Watch as every last member of your family bites the bucket.
Health is everything. You don't have that you got nothing.

i get by by appreciating things.
i really like being outside because nature is so cool!
i i think to myself how plants work... no clue its so interesting though.
i also wonder what animals are thinking when i see them doing different things.

gettng stuck in an angry mindset can happen, as everyone else thats posted has said. for me i end up finding some eastern / spiritual / meditation video or article on the internet that gets me really excited about being alive.

im at the point now where i appreciate things alot, especially my own life.
just switch up your routine.
do you do the same thing every day? try something new. go visit some place in your community. go walk around outside for a while.
finding the stimuli that will change your thoughts / perceptions of things is the key.
um.. if u want you could take a drive out to illinois and we could chillax.... and do alot of drugs if your into that


peace though, (for real!)

Ajax, I think your insights into "life" are accurate. You sound like Sartre or the Buddha. The only difference between you and them is they didn't stop with those insights. They looked for another way, within the ordinary way that we all follow. Have you tried that?

To the OP:

I'm sorry your life didn't turn out the way you wanted it to.

You sort of described how I think, to a certain extent.

While I don't "hate" life, I see it as ultimately pointless; all life is basically pointless.

You can see it easier if you look at bees or ants...

Huge societies based on eating, and breeding, to ensure there will be more generations to do it... and for what? so some animal higher up in the food chain can do the same.

And really, there's no point. Obviously you could argue that there's the search for knowledge, but if the right people aren't interested in furthering it then that becomes pointless too :S

Hey amigo I hear what you are saying. Civilization is spinning out of control. It's too bad so many people in positions of power rolled over and let the elite mount them. "Evil men will only triumph if good men stand by and do nothing," forgot who said it.

It ain't the hand your dealt but how you play your cards. See sig for path to happiness, peace.

I hate to say this - but I am going to say it anyways!

You are absolutely right - the world we live in does suck! I have witnessed people that lie, steal and cheat get ahead - and they do it without any thought or concern - while the honest, hardworking person gets trampled on and taken advantage of by the deceivers of the earth!

It is all a big waste of time - work 20 years doing something and then the technology changes and all that you have spent your time on - is not useless to society - and we are suppossed to be OK with that?

We live a substandard life to the ant!
