I have to agree with the other poster, everything you presented so far is twisted logic.


And yet none of you explained HOW the logic was twisted.

I would hate to live in the world you envision, a world without love, a world without compassion.


What were you reading? No where did I say the world shouldn't have any love or compassion.

A world where our vision of tough loves prevales


It may be tough love to allow people to develop and learn to grow and survive to be free and independent , but it certain is a good cause.

I never said not to help anyone AT ALL. Sometimes people need help, that is reality, I just don't think it is helpful at all to keep them depending on YOU when they can learn to be strong and help themselves.

Nope. The world of 1984 is where we'd end up if we keep going down this path of depending on others instead of learning to be strong and being individual.

It'll lead to trading away freedom out of fear and collectivism instead of being your own person...

BECAUSE you provided us with an example yourself of how the logic is applied and it was evidently TWISTED!!!! I mean Hello Moon to Mars is your receiver working!!




In fact I specifically pointed out how an attacking back someone who attacks you could be a form of love, and how being service to self could be empowering for others...


OMG the tangled web of logic is shackles designed for the hearts of men and woman.

I read through all that and i can sum it up to say your philsophy is offence is the best form of defence in matters of the heart. In other words you have sublimally revealed your true nature... the inquisitor for delivering the message of the Divine....do untoo to other before they can do it to you...Oh what a tangled web we weave!!!


Not do unto others BEFORE they do it to you, rather, do unto others AS they do unto you so that you will not be taken advantage of and they can learn to treat others more kind.

When you do to others as they do to you, you act as a MIRROR so that they can see how their action affected others. Which is why I said it is love. You are TEACHING them (if they choose to learn).

I do not think we should just be mean and rude to people just for the sake of being mean and rude, in fact, I believe that is not natural. Being yourself and looking for your self interest is natural - intentionally setting out to hurt others just for the sake of hurting others is not.

I just never relate to these big principles meant to summerize all that is good or bad.

It is all RELATIVE. Relative to the individuals involved, their intents and will; relative to the circumstances, the surrounding environment.

To speak as generally as I am willing, I'd say living in service to others (selflessly) is no better than living in service to self (egotistically). The ideal might be somewhere in between, always searching that balance point where both are served mutually.

But yeah, sometimes reflecting someones behavior back to them is best for you both, (eye for eye) sometimes it isn't .

I think there is just no easy way out of beign completely in the moment and present, to be in sync with all elements involved. There are no hard and fast rules you can come up with which will dispense you of that intimacy in the future.

They'll live in denial. What else can be done? If they attack you and cause you to suffer and you forgive them, and they keep doing it and you attack back, and cause them to suffer, and they try to "refute" it as not actually being "destructive" then they will be in denial until they do.

Your logic is typical pyschological new age mumbo jumbo of its all about me, and if its not me its not Divine. And what is the Divine its the harbinger of hatred disguised falsely as a mirror of love. I see no love in the Mirror you speak of, i see only a portrayal of death...the death of humanity.

Sounds like from the OP the best way to show "a person injured on the side of the road" is to just keep going, as it shows more love to not help, because it makes them stronger. WOW!!! Even a chimpanzee has the capasity to help another in need. Show you have more compassion than a chimp.

Retaliation? Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth?

All that makes you is blind, toothless, and bitter.

Foolish.

The mirror does not lie. It shows you your reflection.

No. No where did I say that others are not Divine. You added that in there.

The mirror is not disguised as anything. It just exist, showing you your own reflection. It is a mirror of love, only if you are loving.

Then change your actions, and it won't reflect death.

If you harm someone and they harm you back. You get to see a reflection of your own actions. If you don't like it, stop doing it.

If you see actions of death in the mirror, then change it into actions of life...

Every actionand word you take in thread only digs the twisted hole deeper. A mirror by its very nature only shows a reflection of reality, the real reality of emotionals and feelings are hidden from site. Your mirror is very clear..a conceited person standing in front of it saying..mirror mirror on the wall who is the fairess of them all....now your want the honest answer or the Divine truth!!!!!

Emotions are hidden, but actions are shown. If you don't want to see death/destruction in the mirror, stop choosing death/destructive actions..

It's called the criminal justice system. If THEY cause you that much suffering/destructiveness report it to the police and take them to court. This society is governed by the Rule of Law, not the Law of the Jungle. If not criminally, go to civil court. THEY will get the point when restitution or jail time is required. What you suggest is being a SOCIOPATH.

Not good. Not healthy.

Reporting them to the authorities IS a form of responding to the harm that they are giving you. Forgiving them would be to let them keep doing it.

Hope for what?

I'm smiling in the mirror, all is well. If I see someone frowning in the mirror and suffering, they can see me smiling and change the frown into a smile.

By keeping yourself happy, the happiness spread...

If you are not happy and you interact with others, you stand the change of spreading that...

one person's mood can affect another's.
