I love a lot of the stuff you said, it feels like I am closer to Heaven since I've grown out my materialistic ways. And I wonder if its true for
everyone, but for me, I'm much happier even though im still poor and everything else, ever since I started really putting a lot of effort into
selflessness and dedicating time and energy into helping others and asking for no reward and even refusing it when offered. I try to tell other people
this, but I don't know if they will find the same happiness out of it as I do. This is one of the parts that is hard to explain, but it seems that
your mind must be in the right place, you can't just go through the motions. It seems silly that I should feel the need to explain this, but I do
feel the need and I don't know why, but: I know that I'm not perfect, and I know that I still make big mistakes all the time. All I'm trying to say
is, I've found a level of happiness that I feel can never be taken away from me.
There are a few things I don't understand about what you said. Why shouldn't we have sex with our mate?? How do you, or god, expect new people to be
made? Is that the ultimate goal? For everyone to live by these rules and eventually we reach a point where we stop having babies and our species dies
out, in the process ascending to some better place? I may not have such high standards for myself as you, but my rule is no sex without love. No sex
with anyone that you would not be willing to spend the rest of your life with. Also, no contraceptives, if pregnancy happens, it happened between two
people in love and it was meant to happen.
Also, I failed to see in your set of "commandments" where it said anything against drug use?
If you do reply to this, could you please send me a u2u letting me know so that I may return to read your answer? I rarely ever return to a thread
after I've posted and I just know I will forget with this one even though i mean to. There's just too much else to do, too many new threads, too
many new things, I can't bring myself to spend so much time going back to check and see if anyone had anything to say about what I said or had
anything new or interesting to add to the thread. Thank you very much for posting here, btw.
