More musings on love. [Oct. 23rd, 2005|12:25 am]

i am still interested in what others perceive love to be.

to me, love is power. with it, anything is possible.

it should be unconditional. when you love someone, you love their strengths, and accept their flaws. there is no judgement, only acceptance.

and yet, it is such a difficult concept for us to grasp. which is a shame, considering that it's one of, if not the, greatest gifts of life.

If you keep thinking "That man has abused me," holding it as a much-cherished grievance, your anger will never be allayed. If you can put down that fury-inducing thought, your anger will lessen. Fury will never end fury, it will just ricochet on and on. Only putting it down will end such an abysmal state.

we can share ideas that wrok to extract ourselves from slavery, extoll and generally make our world a better place....one straw at a time. In this, my closet LJ friends list, reside scientists in several disciplines, INJTs, ENTPs, teachers, geeks, and hippies, and hecklers too. Lets give them a show? Eh?

A few of us can teach us how to raise, milk, make butter and cheese from goats, others can describe how to legally withold money from the government. I can tell you how to get off the grid (the tit) of big power. We'll see.



hear that EMPIRE!! There's a thunder off in the distance, that is a collective of thoughts coming to get cha.

Bring it!

I bet that if a situation like this happened to Hollywood, or wherever there are lots of white people with money, people wouldn't be suffering as they are. I swear, I saw the first white person who has been hit by this on the news tonight... everyone else is black, and of a lower economical status. I guess it makes sense that these are the people stuck on rooftops, because if they had enough money to leave, they would've. And I also keep thinking that if so many of our armed forces weren't fighting this war, they could be here, helping our citizens.

I have yet to decide if there is anything I can do to help. I avoid giving to charities because I don't feel my money would be put to the use that's told to us, and also that my effort and what else I could give would be more worthy. But, I do nothing. I'm torn... in a way I feel guilty, and also deeply appreciative for the life I have. I also wonder if these events have anything to do with the decline of this world... if it's still going to be a gradual process or will quickly worsen. But I cannot worry, for what good does that do? I should take action instead.

What do you think is our greatest challenge? What do we struggle with the most? Is it love, anger, equality, religion, acceptance?

(My answer is love.)

Is it just me, or does science suck? I mean, knowledge is great and all... but all these "miraculous discoveries" will eventually lead to a monumental writer's block....or many blocks that will stack up to rival the grandoise pyramids of Egypt.

Death/fear. [Aug. 17th, 2005|10:48 pm]

Why are people afraid of death? Where did this concept come from, that it is a bad thing to die? It just seems easier to deal with if we don't see it as a negative thing, and accept it as part of the cycle.

Purpose [Jul. 25th, 2005|05:54 pm]
Expand your mind...
karmagini
Does anyone feel like they are close to achieving their purpose in life? Or even feel they have a purpose? Or are you aware of your purpose?

I feel that every thing we do and act upon, every bit of our character, could be utilized to fulfill what we are meant to be. Or do you feel like you alone determine your purpose, instead of it being "written?"

I believe my purpose is fated, yet I determine how it shall be. That there's a general sense of what I am meant to do, and to complete that could be a variety of things.
