Why I think "Hell" would really be that bad
    #2332999 - 02/14/04 01:13 AM (13 years, 9 days ago)


I do not intend to moke any religions, or be disrespectful, but there are many things to me which dont seem to make sence or which could be argueed.


Now I have only been thinking about this for a week but it seems to make alot of sence to me. and it is that;..
Hell dosent really seem that it could be that bad of a place.
Ok, Ok I know the whole, "pain for all eternity, pitchforks, demons thing" but if you think aobut it it wouldnt be that bad. first off you cant die twice! so you know you wouldnt feel the ultimite pain in Hell, yes they could torcher you alot (by they I mean who evers in charge of hell). But if the tourcher was for all eternity dont you think you would get use to it after a couple of years? Its like if you go to a dump or somthing, the smell is real bad, but after a while you dont notice it. So then why wouldnt it be the same for pain?
Now say you couldnt get used to the pain. Say it was terrible pain, day in and day out (if there are even days) then I still say it wouldnt be that bad. Again WHY? simple I may feel alot of pain, but I would simpley focus my mind of the best parts of my life, the good times that I had, and the good things I did. I would remember family, and Friends. That would make the pain somewhat more bareble.
OK so say MY mind was erased and I couldnt remeber my life. Well then this is the greatest benifet. If I couldnt remeber my life, I would have no understandin of pain, or of good and bad. All I would know Is what I experiance in Hell. So this means It would not be a bad place, it would just be the place in which I exist.

Again there are probably flaws in my thoughts but , Hey this is what I think, and It seems like a good rant to me.

Until I have another SYCO rant.

An interesting idea that I had pondered before, but I still think hell sucks. And I'm not trying to be a stickler, god knows I mispell all of the time, but the word is torture!

I think that if you're in hell with all this excrutiating, eternal pain, that you wouldn't be able to possibly think of anything but the pain. Also, it would be your soul and not your body, so it wouldn't be physical pain would it? I  think it would be incomprehensible (maybe the wrong word?) emotional pain. We can't even grasp how painful it is i bet. Hmmm, anybody here justified to answer? :wink: Peace

Yea, i think someone once posed the idea "What if this is another worlds hell?"

that was a wise man.

My idea of the state of hell would be one of sorrow. Not pain, but mental anguish. It's what's left of a soul when it is disconnected from god - emptiness.

Yea I was kind of thinking the same thing.
Hell is whatever heaven is not. It does not have to be a place of demons and pitchforks as western mythology portrays it, but rather a state of being where you are in some "numbness" for lack of a better word.

However, it is not necesarily a punishment. It is a spiritual checkpoint, where we can "reflect" and then apply what we've learned into our next life and move little further towards the ultimate destination of heaven. It may take several lifetimes to arrive at our goal, but we'll all end up in heaven eventually. I hope so anyways...

I agree with this statement.  I often see people posting how bad it sucks to be on this planet, and more specifically, in the United States.  Now people are saying that life is hell. 

It causes me to stop and look around, to check and see if I'm living on the same planet, in the same country, as people posting here.  Hmm, headlines look the same.  The date is the same on our posts. 

Why do I not see life as hell?  Why do so many others see life as hell?

And personally, I think hell might not be torture.  I think hell might merely be absense of God.  We may not know how much of God's spirit we experience, here on earth.  If God's spirit was suddenly absent, I'll bet we would notice.  I'm thinking that hell is absense of God.  I could be wrong, so I'm going to go talk to my guru.  :grin:

192 -12 N/A Extremely negative body state where one is still in the body, as in an intense migraine attack, in which one's own consciousness is shrunk down and inhibited and the awareness is only in the present in one's pain. The pain is such that one cannot work or do one's usual duties. A limitation is placed upon one's self, one is isolated, a bad inner state.

384 - 6 N/A Similar to +6 except that it is extremely negative. A purgatory-like situation in which one is only a point source of consciousness and energy; fear, pain, guilt in the extreme; meaninglessness prominent.

768 - 3 N/A Like +3 in that one is fused with other entities throughout the universe but these are all bad and one's self is bad and meaningless. This is the quintessence of evil, the deepest hell of which one can conceive. This can be an extremely high energy state lasting eternally, though by planetside clock one is there only for a few minutes. No hope in this state. No hope of escape from it. One is there forever. (See the Cosmic Computer write-up in the chapter The Guided Tour of Hell in Center of the Cyclone, 1972)

I agree with Shroomism as well. But then answer me this, how come people have vivid memories of hell upon leaving their body (NDE, dreams, OBE's, etc...)?

Because the telluric realm.. the second dimension.. the astral plane.. is often seen as the original hell.

*sighs*

Do we have to go look this up for ourselves or would you be kind enough to post a link to something that would explain this?

Better yet, you could give us an explanation!  (In nice, short paragraphs, of course.  :smile:)

Man, it must be Saturday.

>> Hell is like World 8 in Mario3

:lol:


>> Hell is a state of mind

In Buddhism, each of the six realms are considered to be creations of the minds of those who inhabit those places.  For example, in this, the human realm, our collective karma has allowed for both great ease and great suffering.  We might think that if we are born and raised in an American suburb, that this is a result of our excellent karma.  On the other hand, if we are born and raised in a place like Ethiopa, it is beacuse we harbour very bad karma.  Neither of these are necessarily true.

The more our lives are filled with ease, the less likely we are to question our experience, to see it as a necessity to escape suffering.  We become quite content with our luxurious furniture, easy and delicious meals, warm home and wide variety of instant entertainment.  We may waste our entire lives achieving no more than what animals can: gathering items, protecting family.  In this way, rebirth in luxury can be very unfortunate.

The more our lives are filled with adversity, the more likely we are to seek an avenue away from adversity.  We are much more likely to probe the nature of suffering, discover it's root, and if we are skillful, put a stop to the causes of suffering entirely.  If we accomplish this, we have surpassed even the sufferings of those whose desires rarely go unsatisfied.

It is our minds which create our surroundings, and it is our karma which determines the good fortune of those surroundings.  As humans, we have excellent karma because we possess the mental tools necessary to attain liberation and full enlightenment.  Animals do not have this intellectual potential.  They have this potential in their hearts, but it is bound up by their limited animal faculties.  Animals have less favourable karma for this reason.  If a living being has taken rebirth as an animal, it is because their karma has protected them from the sufferings of even lower realms, but has not earned them the capacity to escape suffering entirely. 

The lowest realm of experience is the hell realm.  It is called the lowest realm because it brings us the most suffering.  The hell realm is also a creation of our mind; it is the sufferings we have brought onto others since beginningless time manifesting to our minds directly.  When that karma is exhausted, we escape the hell realm and take higher, yet uncontrolled rebirth.

As humans, we are gradually exhausting the karma which afforded us this opportune life.  If we bring much suffering to others with our human life, our potential for lower rebirth increases.  If we bring much happiness to others with our human life, our potential for continous human rebirth remains.  A rebirth in a higher realm is considered as unfortunate as a rebirth in a lower realm.  If we have lead a life bringing joy to others, yet perpetuated our own ignorance or the ignorance of others, we will take rebirth in the god-like realm, where the bliss is a constant ecstasy.  Because we are in constant ecstasy, we do not seek liberation from suffering and eventually exhaust the karma for bliss and take lower rebirth.

It is important to note that the experience of terrible sufferings in the hell realms are not a form of punishment arbitrated by a divine entity.  It is the potential of our mind for the experience of suffering manifesting directly to our conciousness.  We create these potentialities in our minds with our actions.  By the same token, the experience of immutable bliss in the higher realms is not a reward for good behaviour, it is the potential of our mind for the experience of bliss manifesting directly to our conciousness.  These potentialities are also created by our actions.


>> It causes me to stop and look around, to check and see if I'm living on the same planet, in the same country, as people posting here.

Never cease this investigation. :smile:
