Worthless human beings and the key to life
    #2519371 - 04/02/04 05:16 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Hey guys, long time no see. Well, I thought I'd take some time to share my opinions on the key to life.

All anybody needs is a skill. That's about it. You've got to find something you like doing and pratice and refine it. It's rare that I would classify somebody as being completely worhtless, but there are a few out there, and their only problem is a complete lack of skill. Career, jobs, none of that matters. Almost all skills can be used to promote survival or gain money, but your skill doesn't need to put food on the table. There's plenty of unskilled labour for you to do. You can live on the street and do whatever just please find a skill, refine it, and master it please!

If you ever feel like your life is worthless and don't know why you're here, then pick up a skill and start working on it. If you need to start right now, go get some throwing knives and practice 3 hours every day and then go to the park and bag yourself some squirrels and you'll be good to go. Rock out.

But maybe a knife thrower doesn't need to worry about paying for gas. :grin:

see that's where I disagree. I don't think we need to worry about paying for gas. My statement is:

If you have a skill, you're going to be juuuust fine.

I have no problem with being homeless, sleeping outside, and things like that. The universe is always ready to provide fat squirrels for us. It's not like you're going to violently starve to death if you perfect a skill that doesn't pay your way. I find skilled people easy to respect, it doesn't matter if they're hard up for cash or sew patches on their clothes. It's all in the attitude.

Keys to happy life:

No money, house, etc. does not mean end of life. Don't worry about where your next meal comes from.

and

get a skill and perfect it daily for the rest of your life.

i don't see how you can say some people are worthless. everybody has worth its their self image and self perception that they think they are worthless. you have no right saying somebody or some people are worthless. and its not a matter of having skill in life if just your determination and going after your dreams that make a person

You're absolutely right. Everybody has some skill that they exceed at, even if they haven't discovered it. Exercising your skill will keep you out of depression, because depression is destruction, and the antithesis of destruction is creation. So go out there and create! Create art, create music, create conversation, create a car, create a movie, create a fashion style, create a personality; just create something and you'll see your life-energy revitalized.

Welcome back, Mixomatosis! We (I) missed you!

I agree that everyone needs a skill. I actually believe that everyone is born with a talent at which they would to well upon turning it into a career, they just have to find that talent.

If everyone worked at what they loved, none of us would be working.

I work all the time, but to me, it's like playing, so I don't feel like I'm working, even though I almost work 24/7. It's like a high, doing what I love to do.

Eh...I disagree.  The key to life isn't absolute expertise in one skill, but a balance in several skills.

Isn't moderation key :wink:

I agree, viaggio. I didn't say we should each do only one thing. Some of us are very good at doing several skills. And some of us are good at doing just one skill. (Me!)

But in general, we are each here called to do something at which we are gifted. We have skills for doing many things, and we can engage in many activities, but as far as a career goes, usually a person is gifted in at least one area. One just has to find the area in which he is gifted and then will have a full and blessed life.

Some of you are thinking that I'm saying that you need to have a skill to be worth something. This isn't what I'm saying. I'm saying that by working on a skill you become a worth something.

There was this guy I met when I was working in an orchard once. He hung out all year living in a little shack watching TV, playing video games, and memorizing facts from CBC radio. He had no responsibility whatsoever, but he stressed really really hard all the time. He was a worthless human, and I realized it was because he had accomplished nothing with his life. He didn't have stories about travelling, he had no skill, he wasn't even smart enough to gather riches. I realized that throughout his life he hadn't cultivated anything long-term. All he did was pleased his central nervous system with the most readily-available things and activities. If he got just one house plant, his entire perception of the universe would have completely altered, I'm sure.

I don't agree that taking what you love and doing it for money is a good idea. It's at least something you should be very careful about. Taking music as an example, the day you decide that you are going to be a pro musician you could start sacrificing honest self-expression for record sales and then boom, you've destroyed your own art and your left with nothing but some cash.

In my case I'm a hard working fit individual so I can make it working 4 months a year at unskilled physical labour. This is a nearly-ideal situation for me. I choose "honest" jobs and find them to be surprisingly satisfying. Common sense would tell that you should work towards getting a good job, but you gotta remember, jobs suck! All through high school they were preparing us to become worker drones by encouraging us to get jobs we would enjoy doing all the while sidestepping the simple truth of the matter: jobs SUCK!

PS Last night we scored $15 worth of organic strawberries. 2 pineapples, a melon, a bunch of lettuce and a few beets from a dumpster (I apologize in advance to Frog for my "thievery") and tonight we're going to the beach to start a fire and roast the beets. FUCKIN A!
