So what???
    #2110515 - 11/16/03 02:17 AM (14 years, 6 days ago)

We live we die, we romanticize that are lives mean something, that we have a purpose.

I once worked at a shithole called neff printing. Employees joked that neff stood for a never ending fucking fight. That's how I look at life. It's a continuous fight against the elements for survival. What's the effort worth?

hmmm...it really isn't worth a whole lot, unless you want to apply a worth. the worth isn't what matters. I think in life we experience everything we need to experience before "that time comes"

don't you notice that everything is noise???


--------------------
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

It is all noise
Everything I say is empty rhetoric
I go from moments of celestial peace
to hours of blatant fucking hatred anger
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHh

yeah, tell that to a boy who lost both arms in iraq during us bombing raids. Just cultivate an appreciation for art, oh fuck, I guess you can't create art, since you ain't got no arms

if you don't mind awareness and love, you might want to try on a new reality tunnel that makes your life more perfect, don't worry, you can always switch after that too.

Maybe I should try on a bag fat whinny reality tunnel. Or a pitty party tunnel.

If I were unfortunate enough to lose my arms I hope I would learn something for it. You should be able to learn something from any and all experiances or you are not paying attention.

I can only say that i've had experiences that suggest that all this has a purpose, and its all going exactly the way it should. And that good and bad in this life are perceptual illuisons. But i can't make u believe that too, i can't give you any meaning. Only you can ascribe meaning. But honestly i believe that whatever you do, you had to do, and at best you can learn to be ok with it all. Ofcourse whether you can do that or not is even faited. If there is any consolation for any of us it is uncertainy. We dont know that tomorrow will suck or not. We can only hope that we arent the one who gets the shaft, because all this is unfolding as it should and with out regard to our personal happiness in this moment in time. But even finding or not finding comfort in that, and hoping or not hoping that we dont get the shaft is faited by the unfolding of the system, though probably subject to some randomness. Take comfort in uncertainy if you can. Look for meaning untill you find it, because you can never know if you will find it or not. We all do what we must, no less, no more. I had to write this, and it will either be helpful or it wont.
Sincerely,
That which is, and has no choice but to be.

It all boils down to one thing really

To be, or not to be
William Shakespeare
[Hamlet]

To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them. To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache, and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: aye, there's the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: there's the respect
That makes calamity of so long life;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law's delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscover'd country from whose bourn
No traveler returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry
And lose the name of action.

trying to find the purpose of life is like searching the earth for the arc of the covenant. the only purpose of life is to live it. dont waste your time searching for something that is so basic that its so frequently ignored. ego is the source of this feeling of purpose. let go and realize that existence does not imply purpose or necessity.
