Possible options:

Get a job, sell stuff, sell your sperm, participate in a healthy study, soup kitchen, free samples at the grocery store..and lots of other things. That's leaving out the more underhanded ways.

Quote:

fuck enlightenment, its all an illusion created by the cessasion of our attachment to our sensory produced ego.



The sensory produced ego is a raft of order to hold onto in the chaos of reality. When you aren't holding onto that raft, you will most likely drown. However, some people adapt and 'learn to swim', meaning they will awaken to a different, equally valid reality. This is what most people refer to as 'enlightenment'.  It is a transformation of the ego, not the death of it.  It is the cessation of desire or want... This creates an ego that is more fluid, peaceful, and harmonious.
We should all really learn to swim... It would make things so much easier.  :smile:

"We should all really learn to swim... It would make things so much easier"

i think a speedboat would be much easier than swimming.....until you ran out of gas.

Luxury.


When I was a youngster, our family of 17 lived in a rolled-up newspaper under the bridge. We spent all day foraging for cigarette butts and when we got home our daddy would beat us unconscious with a broken bottle, and that was if he was in a good mood!

I stopped trying to make sense out of the world a long time ago. The problem i have with people is, enlightened or not, there is nothing to stop anyone from be-having in any manner they choose, and second you are gonna die anyways, death does exsist, no one knows, enlightened or not hat happens when you die, the human mind is either intentionally designed in a limited way, it was a fluke, or somewhere burried beyond enlightenment we have the resources to become almost completely independant gods, however i highly doubt this last one.

If you seek to fulfill your self with "toys" you will end up in deception and eventual boredom.
Saying that, we live in a material world, and for all of those that are in the low end meaning pretty broke, you now know what your spiritual work should be, to better your economical situation.
You need to have a minimum of command of the physical world before jumping to the spiritual.
I remember the time when I did not know how I was going to be able to pay my rent, and the state of my mind in those days comparing to now, that I have my home paid off my land money saved up and much more free time, I can say the later is better.
I live very simple now, but when I really want something that I think I can get some use or pleasure I don?t hesitate to buy it.
I recommend you guys buy a book that helped me a lot "your money or your life

...smuggle illegal aliens...

Yeah, I am set for life after sneaking in that brood of Reptilians from Alpha Centauri in the hold of my star freighter...
