It's kinda interesting that you chose to word your Rant in that manner. Although I really think the 'Point' can be communicated with just a
fraction of the words you used. To illustrate what I am talking about, look back at your original message which is quoted above, but only the section
. Now let's read it again but with special consideration to 'Believe'. (as in: Be-Lieve, Be-Leve, or Be-Leave)
- v. First and third person singular past indicative. To exist in actuality; have life or reality.
Lief same as Lieve
- adj. Ready or willing.
Leve same as Leave
- v. Left. To have as a result, consequence, or remainder. Omit. Exclude. Abandon or forsake.
Now let's read that message again!
You will never (Exist or Live) more than you (Live Forsaken), unless you stop (Excluding Life.)
You may also wan to include something at the end though, that Way the message not only makes others 'Aware of being Lost', but also to help guide
them in 'Finding the Way to the True Path'. Something small like,
Stop Be-Leaving(Living a Forsaken Life) & Just Be(Exist in Actuality, Have Live Reality)!!
I'm don't think you actually meant what you said, in the same way I read it or adjusted it. It was most likely just some 'Mud Pit' attack against
other members and/or certain concepts they may have, only you know for sure. However, I still think this makes a good example of how Language can
have various meanings while still keeping the same 'Words'. Seeing and Knowing The Way to the Correct Answers Exposes the Incorrect Answers, just
as Seeing and Knowing the Incorrect Exoposes the opposite. Thoughts and ideas of this nature are always fun IMO. Plus the more visible it becomes as
one's perception changes, the more fun it is to reading all those 'Buddhist Koan's' and 'Bits of Wisdom' that we all come across now and then!
