i have been looking through posts the past day. and was wondering if contemplating, theorising, philosphising, about aliens, time traveling, hypotheticals, fantasy, i know that there is a possiblity that these things might exsist but does it do you any good in your life in this present time??? or do you just enjoy food for thought??

You are correct that spirituality should be DIRECTLY applicable to enabling one to live a more content life. Esoteric babble has not helped one single person. Do alien / Atlantis / photon belt believers have fewer divorces, depression and suicides? No. (I would wager they rate worse on all metrics for emotional health.) The sort of SpaceDragon mind candy that people here eat up endlessly is a distraction and an avoidance of real understanding. This is why the Buddha would ONLY speak of things applicable to living a fulfilling life.

The proof is in the pudding.

asking is the way you get your answer, simply because it brings you to the next question?

Doesn't matter. It's all fun to think about. Some of it is actually relevant to my life.

Spirituality can often change what one values as "fulfilling".

Here's how I see it.

This forum, like life, is like a giant football field. You can be one of any charater at any time or many at once.

You got players on the fieled and observers in the stand and some on the bench being called in to play from time to time.

Some know how to pass the ball, some know how to catch it and run with it and score their own touch downs.

You have some ball hogs and non team players out to be the star.

You have some people who are standing on the fieled and want to be in the game but the ball keeps flying over their head or nails them hard and they say "ouch! that hurt, you guys play to rough" or they catch it, but fumble.

You have people fouling and refs calling for suspensions and time outs.

Ya got people playing defense and offense and some good line blockers.

People love the game, it's exciting and action packed weather you're playing or watching.

The cosmic joke comes into play when you realise, we're all on the same team.

People who get nothing from this forum and have nothing to give leave and thats okay. Down time is vital to good health. Take a long break and see if you miss it. If you do, ask yourself why? Then you will get some insight into what you were getting out of coming here or any fullfillment recieved by giving.

i also like the analogy.

i divide the posts i read here into a few categories, those that actively challenge the way i think about and act in life (not many but some) , those that provide me with new thoughts and ideas to contemplate and enjoy, if not accept, those that provide me with simple amusement, and those that are an opportunity to test the 'airtightness' of my own beliefs. Their all good, in my oppinion

Lakimada,

I just noticed this is your first post here. WELCOME! I hope you'll jump in to some posts and create your own and show us your equipment!

Maybe some of us will want to play with what you play with or sit on.
