Nah, Peeps isn't evil, she's actually one of the few people on this site who isn't.


Easy to say, until Jody, the evil talking pig shows up.

Laugh more.

And don't scream until you're hit.

Nice cliché.


Truth is timeless. Only those who are not comfortable with the truth finds ways to dismiss and belittle it.

Clichés aren't necessarily truthful, just that they are overused, unoriginal platitudes.

Funny you avoid the truth behind the statement the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

How many people have been murdered with the mind set of, “only if we could get rid of ‘this group of people’ the world would be a better place.” Everything from Jews to gun owners.

There is no 'truth' to it, it's a stupid, overused saying and totally not relevant to the Original Post which is about mediation and self-centering.

I guess some people cannot handle the truth, and what lead to many a murder of an innocent person. Nazi Germany believed the world would be a better place without the Jews. Is that false. How does “the road to hell is paved with good intentions” not apply.

Special with in the context of:

quote]originally posted by: Peeple
Evil is relative. Ask a pig and we are evil.

It's there either way, if you pay attention or not.



But it was relevant to this post.

Bottom line. “Kindness” often has dire unintended consequences. Which does happen. Is that false. Thus the term the road to hell is often paved with good intentions. Or it is somethings kinder to be cruel. Such as ripping a bandaid off vs trying to pull a bandaid off gently by going slow. I am sure I can bring up some examples of amputations by old school surgical saws if you like? From around the era of the civil war?

And how is “the road to hell is paved with good intentions” any more of a cliche than the opening post in a modern world where actual freedom of movement is based off a virus.

So. Lockdowns where not a road to “human rights hell” based on good intentions?

If most people couldn't identify with these statements, would we even classify them as a cliche'? No, it would have been forgotten already.

Do you really think meditation and self centering is going to change the outcome of People's reality? No, it's a good intended effort to do so, but it's only a temporary effort. Sometimes good intentions can still lead to disaster.

Blah, blah, blah, Nazis. Not relevant to mediation or self-centering as the Original Post discussed. Another non sequitur.

Hitler meditated.
He was also a vegetarian, uncontrollably flatulent, did coke...and injected bull semen.

Meditation is a good tool for internal focusing and shutting out external stimulus...but, whether you come to the realization that you must dedicate your life to helping the less fortunate...or invading Poland...depends on the person you are.

Yes. I think changing your mindset and being positive will certainly alter your engagement with everyone else around you. If you are a negative person you tend to behave/act negatively which impacts every aspect of your life.

Sadly...with all the available beauty and love in the world...we still create and perpetuate adversity, anger and hate to prevail.

You're so spot on here...sigh...we've a long way to go yet...*

How do you know what intentions are behind it?
You decided that's how you can cope. You don't really know. Like the rest of us.

It's quite funny watching you getting all defensive.

My intentions are what Tulpa said.
But kindness is not justice.
I want justice.
And the truth.
You are completely wrong with what my intentions are so you're obviously not Baby Genius.
