Isn't all of us having it kinda the same as not having it?
It becomes worthless when it's given to everyone, like a participation trophy or something.
Not if it is unique to you. I have a purpose that is different from your purpose. Maybe your purpose is to support me so I can do great things in the future.
What if they're their own god, like a Satanist or Turquie?
So what if they are? I do not care.
Who's to say drifting wasn't itself a part of the path?
It can be nice if it is part of the path, but IMHO people who drift and wait for the day to come when they becaomerm aowejriwojaeoijaoiwjeoi ja
Anyway, drifting is OK as long as you get your act together AT SOME POINT. Better not take too much time drifting or you enter a cycle.
By Deterministic themes anyway, God or not you're basically trapped within a causal clockwork, and the only thing of note is our own confusion over half-noticing it.
Deterministic themes, they ain't for me. I can't prove determinisim anyway. Why not just adopt a more open mind? I mean you can choose whatever you like. IAnd I can choose what i like.
What evidence do we have of causality beyond the things we understand anyway?
I do not feel like most people here get it. I am not being rational at all. My rationale is not rational, it is based on emotion. I do not need to explain myself to anyone. I only answer to God.
But instead of making a clown of myself, how about I actually try to be a decent human being and help the people here? Is that not a better purpose than to randomly troll people on the Internet? Sure.
So I guess I am just deep-down an incredibly selfish person and that is why I want God's forgiveness and I want to repent for my sins. But unless I make a life-long change, I am just a fraud. Like the rest of the people.
All those people who keep on and on.. Talking about how they DREAM of things. I will become people's dreams. I am tired of being disappointed. Instead of looking at people and seeing if they can reach new heights, why do I not do that myself? I am nowhere yet worth noticing on the grander scheme of things and I am sure God has a few surprises waiting for me. I can not wait to see what those surprises are. I hate people who tell me I have achieved something when I have not made a single dent in human history or changed the cosmos.
So what's he been up to these past few months then?
Stuck in LA for weed trafficking.
I'm going to link some... inspirational material.
Wizard of Odd
All Gas No Brakes
Vice has featured quite a few "Free Thinkers" as well who seem to be on a similar page. I guess if someone wants to think they're a Mermaid and married to Jack Sparrow, why not?
If you want more links like that I spend tons of time finding people untethered by convention as a hobby.
But in the same strain, if I want to question people for their strange self-made entrapments, why not? If it's "Live and Let Live", why not live and let me ask these questions and carry these judgements?
Or is it only "Live and Let Live" only until they feel bad, bad over being sensitive enough to treat words as violence (or by Leftist circles, "rape")?
That is near, thank you TC. I was thinking more like something htat will change all of history forever, not granny going to buy milk for kids after doing drugs 24/7 for 60 years although that is prettyu admirable.
What if those are what feel worth dreaming about?
There's a beauty in the void, in meaninglessness, just how there's also value in everything being connected.
Is there really though? If nihilism floats your boat, feel free to go for it. I prefer my meaning. I crave for meaning, it is ingrained in my brain, and it will be ingrained in my children's brains, and they will go through life chasing for a ghost that does not exist and it will always be their life's purpose until the end of my genetic line when Jesus finally takes me and tells me what my life was about and where this all started and how it all ended and how I am special and unique.
What about you? What is your purpose in life? When you get up in the morning, what keeps you going? Feel-good chemicals in your brain. I will rise above that and find my meaning in life through suffering and atonement.
I prefer the I <3 Huckabees message; that everything matters but that it's no big deal. It's the streamline between a surprising number of paths.
As a consequence of I <3 Huckabees' message how has your life changed? I will watch the movie.
I mean I like exploring those worlds too, but there still ought to be a method behind it instead of merely going with what you'd prefer plainly.
Method behind religion or choosing a religion? Why does there need to be a method?
Within many spititual paths, there's legitimate material growth within it to find. Split the gems from the roughage and there are things that can be taken away from it that can apply to the general consensus over what constitutes our world.
I love looking up religious materials, but I don't see why you have to go into it like a cultist to gain something from it. There's much room for material gains (in lieu of spiritual) through looking at these more like a theologist, like seeing the symbols between multiple paths for what they all have in common for instance.
Even treating Astrology as more of a seasonal calendar of human trait clusters allows material things to be gleaned from what's otherwise been shrouded in mystical bullshit.
Because it is a magical world and if you look at it through the lens of science it becomes plain and boring and unreal. My view of the world is the truth, and nothing less and nothing more. There is nothing to "gain" from it except the love of God and direction. I worship God because it is a fact that God exists and that I was born to worship God. Why do you need reasons for something like that, or benefits for yourself? If you are faced with truth, do you choose what is beneficial over what is real?
I get that, real is blah blah. And blah. I do not give a fuck. God is real.
In fact, I have not yet decided if I am *in fact* Jesus or just a regular worshiper. I used to think I am Jesus when I was young. Maybe I should re-visit those thoughts now that I am older.
So what religion are you going for?
If you had to put a name tag on it, Christianity.
