How would you know that God Himself is always good?

Life is filled with suffering, but it is also filled with many wonders, like the blue sky, the sunshine, the eyes of a baby. To suffer is not enough. We must also be in touch with the wonders of life. They are within us and all around us, everywhere, any time. If we are not happy, if we are not peaceful, we cannot share peace and happiness with others, even those we love, those who live under the same roof. If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace. Do we need to make a special effort to enjoy the beauty of the blue sky? Do we have to practice to be able to enjoy it? No, we just enjoy it. Each second, each minute of our lives can be like this. Wherever we are, any time, we have the capacity to enjoy the sunshine, the presence of each other, even the sensation of our breathing. We don't need to go to China to enjoy the blue sky. We don't have to travel into the future to enjoy our breathing. We can be in touch with these things right now. It would be a pity if we are only aware of suffering.
We are so busy we hardly have time to look at the people we love, even in our own household, and to look at ourselves. Society is organized in a way that even when we have some leisure time, we don't know how to use it to get back in touch with ourselves. We have millions of ways to lose this precious time we turn on the TV or pick up the telephone, or start the car and go somewhere. We are not being with ourselves, and we act as if we don't like ourselves and are trying to escape from ourselves.
Meditation is to be aware of what is going on-in our bodies, in our feelings, in our minds, and in the world. Each day 40,000 children die of hunger. The superpowers now have more than 50,000 nuclear warheads, enough to destroy our planet many times. Yet the sunrise is beautiful, and the rose that bloomed this morning along the wall is a miracle. Life is both dreadful and wonderful. To practice meditation is to be in touch with both aspects. Please do not think we must be solemn in order to meditate. In fact, to meditate well, we have to smile a lot.
-- Thich Nhat Hanh

“Everyday we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child - our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”

Psalm 107:1
1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Psalm 145:9

I think it is true that you can't be genuinely GOOD without being Enlightened and hence one with God.

:lol:

There really are no rules. Karma perhaps. But meth is just dopamine flooding, it helps to fight off the effects of antipsychotics, which are useless. :yoda2:

I.e., telling people to do meth,

laughing at people who correct you on this,

and so forth.

it's a bit psychopathic.

Are you alright?

You're misinterpreting most of what I'm saying on these forums. The laughing emoticon is because I thought you were having a joke and I was laughing at your joke...

You dont get it at all do you.

Meth destroys families. homes. lives.

STay. AWay. FRom. Me.

That doesn't mean -- ask, "Are you ok?" or aggressively pursue me.

Stay. Away.

It doesn't mean, keep pushing meth.

Stay. Away.


Doesn't mean say how only a little bit can't hurt you.

Stop pursuing a conversation with me.

Get. Away. From. Me.

Perhaps A.I can make the family unit unnecessary, after all it's an expedient for continuing the race. In the future perhaps other structures will form; and if a life belongs to it's owner it's theirs to dispose of.
