Life is Fucking Great!
    #2039253 - 10/24/03 07:56 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I'm sorry, but the attitude you take towards life creates the experience of life that you receive. This thought is so simple and yet so easy to forget.

Take a deep look into your feelings. Are you satisfied with your life? What is it that is keeping you down?

All it takes is a snap of your fingers and some positive thinking to instantly get up off your ass and do something about this life that you are living. You can either change or you can be ground under by change.

Life is fucking great. If you think it isn't, then you are fucking missing out.
Peace.

Anthrax Be All, End All lyrics
Yes, no, yes, no
Not, another word
You'll know what to do
Right!
In your face they see it
In their face you...
Take it
Make up their minds
Aggression turns the screws
Fight!
Take your piece and hold it
Make your piece and...
Stand up, you know what it means
Wake up, time to live your dreams

Down by,
Law and they can't hold you
Dictate and control you
Hold onto your ideas
Down by,
Law and no one owns you
And all the shit they've thrown you
Pay back is a real bitch

Nothing's ever easy when you do it yourself
All you can do is try
Life's not, unfair, life's just life
Death not suicide

Be all, and you'll be the end all
Life can be a real ball
State of mind
Euphoria

Think,
On your feet, and stay one step ahead
Break
Take your brain and use it
Take their mind and..
Change,
An attitude, like you change your shorts
Right!
In your face they see it
In their face you...
Stand up, you know what it means
Wake up, time to live your dreams

Down by,
Law and they can't hold you
Dictate and control you
Hold onto our ideas

Down by,
Law and no one owns you
And all the shit they've thrown you
Pay back is a real bitch

Nothings ever easy when you do it yourself
All you can do is try
Life's not unfair, life's just life
Death not suicide

Be all, and you'll be the end all
Life can be a real ball
State of mind
Euphoria

Always takin', always faking
Ignorance is so frustrating
Always taking, always faking
Ignorance is,
No way, no way, no way, no way out!


...........................................
Specificaly...
Change,
An attitude, like you change your shorts




I believe the secret to happiness is in this song.
Be all, and you'll be to end all.
Life can be a real ball.
State of mind.

Be all and you'll be to end all

Every moment you are doing something that matters. Every moment you are exerting your own bit of influence on the direction of life, on the direction in which your world is moving. Even when you are doing nothing, it matters very much. For by doing nothing, you allow some of your greatest possibilities to pass by without ever being fulfilled. Whatever you're doing right now truly matters. It will make a difference in the way your life proceeds, a difference for yourself and for all those around you. What will the difference amount to? That depends on what you're doing.
You cannot escape the consequences that will surely come from this moment. Yet you can have a very influential say in what those consequences will be, by virtue of what you do with it.
Live every moment as though it's the most important thing you can do. And soon enough you'll discover that it is.

This is good Karma. Inner change brings the most powerful outer change. Outer change brings only minimal inner change.

Granted, but to play devil's advocate since Swami is not here, what if instead of being a Westerner happily typing away on your computer, you are an Ehiopian child who is starving and roasting under the hot desert sun?

Would your attitude carry the day then?

What would you suggest the child tell himself to get pumped-up and perky?..

"Boy I tell you, this starvation.. these flies covering my face, and this sweltering desert are all part of God's marvelous creation! Do I feel lucky to be alive baby, wo0t!!"

If I was an Ethiopian child, and had to live like that, I would still think the same way only if there was some sort of circumstance that allowed me to have access to similar thoughts.
Peace.

how could one know how that would feel? these kind of questions are ok to make a point i guess, but no one can know anothers reality

If you were an ethiopian child who was half starved to death, had seen his/her parents die and was suffering from various illnesses, life would not be great and saying a few "affirmations" wouldnt change that. Life is not always, fucking great nor is it particularly amazing all of the time.

The attitude you take towards life creates the attitude you take towards life. It does not on the other hand create your life experience. It may effect what life experience you have as a positive frame of mind can lead you down different paths but just having a postive outlook does not mean you are going to avoid unpleasant life experiences.

Oh yes, that's very true! But a positive frame of mind will also help you deal better with life's little "problems". At least I think so. :smile:

Hell, if I was that kid, I would say "What the hell do I have to lose now", and then pursue something knowing that if I failed at it, it wouldn't really matter in the end anyways.

At least that is what would eventually pull myself together if it was me that was dropped in Ethiopia, it was me that was starving, and it was me that had my parent's die. If i was a different person entirely, there is absolutely no way I could know ANYTHING about how I would feel, because my only experience of life is what I have now.

But if I was put through the same experiences as the Ethiopian kid, no matter how much "life would suck", I know that I would get back up on my feet. I have seen what it is like to truly live and would NEVER give that up, no matter what happens.
Peace.

You seem pretty sure how "you" would deal with these situations and dare I say it, you sound fairly impressed with how "you" would deal with that situation.

Perhaps you should try a little experiment. Spend a couple of weeks surviving on half a bowl of rice a day...Just to give yourself a sense of perspective on what you are actually saying. You dont really buy into this suffering is all in your head nonsense do you? I know you think you could positive think through anything im just saying dont believe everything you think, even if it is positive.

If you were an etheopian child starving I doubt you would ever have gotten to the point to reach the wonderful conclusions that seem to work for you now. You would be a completely different person. Life would more than likly suck for you if you didn't die within the fist few years of your life from disease and such.

Also you cannot really have this logic only go in one way if it is what you really believe due to duality. "The experience of life that you receive creates the attitude you take towards life." Can also work. If one is true so if the other, because we are nothing but reflections of our opposites. One cannot exist without the other.

Well, if you dare say how that I sound fairly impressed with it, then you dared to say it... but it doesn't mean that I am.

I sound pretty sure of myself because I know the way that my mind works and I know how I deal with different situations. With the knowledge that I have received from life so far, and a certain state of mind that I can relatively easily enough access, I KNOW that I would eventually pull through anything and get back on my feet. The way I have raised myself to deal with shit makes it that way.

I mean, sure, there are a lot of times I start to get depressed with something, and I end up laying in bed starting to fucking not want to get up. My thoughts in that situation always lead to these kind of thoughts "Well, that shit is in the past. Nothing I can do to change it, I can only get up right now and make something worth living for." "There isn't any point in laying here and fucking hating myself." Shit like that.

There isn't any point in dwelling on shit in the past. And if I am in a situation right now that I don't like the way things are going, I will get up and do something about it. I mean, life is too fucking short to fucking sit around on a couch all day (or on the side of the road, or what the fuck ever) and fucking feel like life sucks and there is nothing I can do about it. Because there IS something I can do about it.

Dude, I have a sense of what it is I am saying. Do you know how many situations have caused me to question this shit? Do  you know how many times I have battled in my head over this shit? There is a reason I believe what I believe and think the way I think.

Suffering IS all in your head. Suffering is a negative feeling caused by a certain experience or situation. However, it is only our mind that links the certain experience to suffering. I can't say how I would cope if everyone in my family died tomorrow, this house burnt down and I was left with no money, no home, and no family. However, no matter how much it would suck, I would HAVE to get back on my feet and still live my life. That is just the way it is. :grin:
Peace.
