my problem is not that i do not see purpose in even unfortunate things. My problem is not that i do not see my own purpose. You are excusing the fact
that you assumed this issue about me. you also excuse the fact that other people might get upset by things you say, by saying it is all their
No, it isn't.
there is a flip side to each coin. YOUR words can be just as accountable as my interpretation.
you see, everything is connected, until you disagree. THEN, it's my interpretation causing the problem. that is YOU externalizing something. admit
that you are not a master of this philosophy and we will have much less of a problem in my eyes.
I do not completely disagree with what you say, but i firmly believe that the only way you can say it... it to do exactly opposite of this "all
connectedness" & place yourself on the good side of that interpretation.
If all is already perfect in your eyes, then why was there any reason to reply?
You must admit that even you believe things cannot just be ignored into a state of utopia which is what this philosophy of all being perfect suggests,
else you would do nothing. You would feel the need to change NO THING.
It's not that i do not get the philosophy, it's that YOU think you are more enlightened than the average joe i guess and feel that you have grasped
something they cannot grasp. How can you say everything is already perfect when there is such a thing as 'imperfection" ah, but that is just the
faulty interpretation, right? how can there BE a faulty interpretation if everything is just as it should be?
If these problems are meant to be "drivers" to keep us busy... then that means the worst thing we could do is tell ourselves we are so enlightened
that they simply no longer bother us.
i'm just trying to get you to see this huge contradiction and why it would make so many people angry to say.... there are only problems in life
because you perceive them as such.... yet that same person is eyeballing a problem in the philosophies of others.
YOU are not even practicing what you preach.
look, I don't have a real problem with you unless i think you are taking this so far that you just want to immobilize people by convincing them of
this complacency with everything... even if they don't agree with it. Emotions were not meant to be simply buried that way... you push them back into
the sub, they resurface.... unless you are living off of STRONG medication to the point where it at least does not rear it's head in this life.
i honestly feel that you are explaining something to people, because you think they might be a little dumb... when for all you know, they have
considered things like this on and on and on in great depth.
listen... so all is a whole?
ok... to each whole, there are two halves.... there are MANY more smaller pieces.
those pieces do not have to be the same. You have duality, you have positive and negative. they say energy cannot be lost but it can certainly be
so why in the world do you think that a concept of "there are pieces within this whole that i don't want to be a part of"...and this drives my present
character, my present brain...since my brain is just a part and not the whole... to be what it is. why do you think that concept cannot be just as
real and valid as any other?
...and don't even try to say it's a matter of how happy you want to be... that is all relevant to the current life. i see myself as a VERY happy
person... until i am in the company of certain other people and i am TRYING to do something about it. that is not self made misery and i am NOT a
i am simply stating that if everything has so much purpose, then why do i see such purposeless deeds manifest in the actions of people who for all we
know... would make a much better tree?
that way they cannot project their will unto others, like murderers who take lives.
some things simply DID NOT have to be.
Can you not just concede to the definition of "needless".... because the concept very much exists!
If the concept exists, then surely... some things are truly needless. how could it be any other way?
YES... i can fully encapsulate the notion of the full spectrum, i just do not think that those words are a good way to inspire anyone to a more
if someone is upset... you say? "no, all is perfect"..... then so was their opinion and emotion that lead them to the state of being upset. this is
NOT a good way to say it in my opinion. Why? because it sounds like you think you have an authority to insist upon something that in this constant
fluctuating duality *it just might be wrong*
why can't you instead say, "try to see the upside, the benefit to this problem, the chance it could manifest for you"
seriously, you think i cannot conceive of such a thing? i do it every day. please do not dumb me down that way.
i think your words are sterile and maybe lethargically untailored to the individual you speak to.
