Says who? what do you think will be waiting for you when you die, puppys and cakes filled with candles that display how much you loved and became one
Firstly right up until recently I was an atheist but from being a member here and from my own personal journey into my own mind/ego via years of deep
introspective meditation I have come to the conclusion that there is much more to life than just being flesh and that there is another life that
consists of pure energy going on that is bound to this fleshy vessel and it means something of vital importance to everyone even those that have no
idea that it is there. Just because someone believes it does not exist does not means it does not exists it just means they have no idea it is there
– yet. For most of my adult life I have tried to do better and to try to see the better side of humans that travel with me but of course it is hard
to do so when so many humans will shaft you and nail you to a door if it suited their purposes at the time to do so.
I do not know what happens after death but I have experienced some things during several events that had me facing death or at the very least being
maimed. Therefore I have some theories that for now I will keep to myself but I am now sure that the mindset of an atheist blinds him or her to a
hidden realm that exists alongside this one and is intrinsically related to this one and probably a countless other realities/realms.
Without dwelling upon the details I had to contend with humans attempting to take my life and had to undergo the trauma of accepting that my attempts
to fight back were not going to work, I was outgunned and outnumbered and I was looking death straight in the face with a level of hate you do not
want to know, ever!
I failed and found myself waking up to a body that was broken and would remain broken for years to come. I was paralysed down my right side and It
took years of relentless near hopeless hard work to recover and for all that I had to kiss my military career goodbye which was not an easy thing to
say goodbye to as my family tradition and background is/was military.
Even then I knew it could have been worse and at least I stood a chance of getting better. I shared a ward with a man who had been shot through the
head, a hole in the side of his head big enough to fit a can of Coka Cola in (I hated it when he did that) and his mind was shattered, and every night
screaming for someone...
The point I am making is that to face such murderous intent caused me years of extremely self destructive anger and bitterness, thoughts of suicide,
fear and paranoia with much deeper psychological problems that involved loud noises, crowds and groups of strange men. However now that I have grown
and come out the other side as a reborn person (not religious) I feel no bitterness to the men that tried and very nearly succeeded in murdering me
and I know for a certainty that I could sit in a room with any one of them and honestly shake their hand because I think it is harder but better to
give up things that eat the soul and bitterness from painful past memories tends to eat you alive and cause others close to you to suffer in the
I am happier and more relaxed and after travelling the way I have and coming to understand the nature of karma I realise that I would gain much more
to give forgiveness and to move on rather than perpetuate the mechanism of hate that works in the way of passing on a contagious disease.
In my world I choose to see hate and bitterness as a kind of game and to associate that game as being nasty and of no overall benefit to anyone. The
stakes of the game are much more expensive than losing the worst game of poker in Vegas and considering I do not gamble – I no longer play the
Originally posted by strangleholder1 Look through the lies people, it doesn't matter if you love or hate. They are just concepts made
up by man for reasons of control.
I do not believe for one instant that love or hate was created as a concept by men to keep men under control. Hate is something so incredibly debased
and so regressive to our deeper spiritual nature that it could not have been created as a part of social programming even by the most ingenious and
As for love, how could anyone have ever created love? Love is that thing we can never touch but that which touches us with something so positively
powerful that it warms the spirit, blows the mind wide open. Love is what keeps me alive not food, not water but the love of my wife and my
daughters, my friends and with love comes hope of a better time. Sure food and water sustains the body but love sustains my energy and spurs my karma
to new heights. Love is everything and no conceptualisation could ever have given rise to it because to me the meaning of love is esoteric and beyond
comprehension in any explainable terms.
Love is therefore many things but a concept it most certainly is not!
Originally posted by strangleholder1 Do whatever you want THAT! is spiritual free will. If we all were honest with each other, aren't
you just being nice because you believe it will benefit you in the afterlife?
People who pretend to be nice cannot fight their true nature permanently or sanity and the ability to hold on to it might become an obvious problem
that manifests itself in countless ways that screams psychological damage because you must be what you are and yes you may act nice but if you are not
nice then you will pay a heavy price at some point in psychological terms because the only person you are fooling is yourself but the conscious you
not the unconscious = bad energy and risk of illness.
You can deny that and I assume you will and that is fine of course but I have personal experience of this when I was ill and heartsick and I have seen
the effects of negative thinking in others and when negative thinking is used as part of living life and used to help make life choices and thought
processes then life can turn into a very real nightmare. It is already easy to turn a life into a nightmare it is therefore a shame that many fall
into this trap without even trying to avoid it – as if they never saw it coming.
Therefore it is not about playing nice but being who you are and if you happen to be negative then as a human soul you do have the choice in changing
for the better by recognising the defect in karma and rectifying the defect with effective meditation and the introspective insights that can be
gained for this course of action.
Originally posted by strangleholder1 Isn't then EVERYTHING! you do tainted with self-interest and therefore a negative? You are missing
out if you live by only one emotion, the others are just as valid for spiritual growth. You are just love extremists, blanking the rest of the
spectrum of emotion. This ultimately stilfles and blinkers your life experience...
You could have a point but not if you point that accusation at me because with respect I have no agendas whatsoever when it comes to people. I like to
be treated as a human being and I like to treat others in the same way.
I do many things in my life that benefits others and I take no money for it.
