Music.

I often think along those lines. I can't seem to put faith into an afterlife, or a Grand Purpose, or anything like that. I entertain such ideas, but it doesn't go much further. So yeah, music is what grounds me. I can only hope that my music lives on after I leave this world.

p.s. Thanks for reminding me  :wink:

My children and their children. Who needs a better reason as this one is sacred.

I hope that something from this mind of mine will live on after my body is dead and gone: that some of the thoughts and ideas I have had (and will have) should live on in the minds of others.

I can think of no greater honor.

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

When I am diagnosed with some terminal illness, I am going to have all my friends over for a Swami cannibalistic barbeque so that everyone can take a piece of me with them.

Who's up for ribs?

The proof is in the pudding.

I think ritual cannibalism is a very respectful undertaking. Do we have to wait for a terminal illness, though, might spoil the meat. Make sure they use K.C. Masterpiece...that's good sauce...man, I'm getting hungry.

I like to photograph everything and write journals. I have this crazy idea that someone will care enough about them someday in the future to enjoy them.

im glad u think having children is sacred..
maybe u should think about wether or not we really need more right now tho.
what consequences come from bringing new life into the world? how does it effect the rest of the world?

It is the prime "purpose" behind all life to have its genetic material passed on to another generation :wink:

Trendal nailed it. When I say procreation is sacred that also means it should not be entered into frivolously. Having 12 children because you are too lazy for birth control is stupid. When something is sacred then everything about it should be carried out with thought and concern. Our population does need to moderate, but new blood needs to come into the species to prevent stagnation. To hold procreation sacred is to also consider if it should be done.
