I Am Provided For
    #1918213 - 09/15/03 03:14 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Aren't you? :grin:

Seriously, I think having the unshakable belief that "I am provided for" is one of the most important that one can have..

I constantly find myself being provided for when I constantly remind myself of this. Shit seems to work out like seconds on a clockwork when I never forget that I am provided for. I hold my intentions and intentions are fufilled.. as long as I do my part. No free welfare checks coming in for me... heh.
Peace.

This isn't about asking for anything. This is about "being provided for". If you have something, then you are provided for, right? And this isn't about materialistic means. This is just about being provided for.. heh.

Anyways, do you get what I am saying? :grin:
Peace.

Reread my post.  :grin:

It is trying to say that we should be thankful for what we have been provided with (or will be provided with) rather than asking for something we think we need or want.

Well, yeah, exactly. Material possessions aren't meant to bring any sort of fufillment. They are just toys for us to play with.

The concept of "I am provided for" is more of a mind calmer-downer.. but, like I think it was DoctorJ, maybe?... who discovered the positive effects "I am provided for" contains?
Peace.

we are definitely all provided for


does that mean people dont starve? no... unfortunately in this world there is alot of karma

but karma is provided for us as a process to forgive us for our past actions...

so in the end...

every little thing its gona be alright.


people who have spent all their time crying for god and truth have been served by animals before...there is a sacred name for a holy person and its meaning is "one who has been served by animals"
I have heard of truely auspicious occaisians where this has happened, in the biography of a saint

theres alot of beauty in this world, I hope I continue to focus on it

I hope I learn how to focus on it. You're right about beauty being everywhere we look but there is also so many things that can distract us from the splendor of everyday life. How can one keep such a positive outlook on life when people are starving daily? I assume I'll just have to accept that suffering is part of life and not all are as lucky as I am.

I guess I just answered my own question. 

:tongue2:

"I assume I'll just have to accept that suffering is part of life and not all are as lucky as I am."

not many people have that outlook, to appreciate what you do have because when you really look at it, you are typing on a computer, and if you have a comp, then you have shelter, which means you have been provided for. I like this one quote that said, "To be upset over what you don't have is a waste what you do have." I like to look at everything I do have because even the smallest things are important.




--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

never underestimate your environment's ability to give you just the information/thing you needed before you even realized you needed it

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
