psst, the meaning of life is Yes
    #3682130 - 01/26/05 09:08 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Has anyone tried faith?

Im not talking about any complicated theory.

Imagine things are very simple.

That you have allready figured out life and there is no need to keep looking for answers.

...

Dont try too hard to understand or interpret my message.

If you see - there isnt anything to debate. My message is simple.

Yes is the answer to life.

With Faith comes Love.

I want to keep looking for answers. I don't want to pretend I know everything for the sake of comfort.

If I convince myself I already know all the answers, there's nothing new to learn.

I can't think of a more boring prospect.

that is a very good idea, because the world can be as simple as you make it.

But I don't think you can say "yes" unless you fully understand what you are saying "yes" to.

Some people expect that their cancer will be healed if they say "yes" and put all their faith in jesus christ as their savior. Sadly this doesn't work. They might be able to heal themselves if they learn how to discipline their minds and redirect their energy in order to purge the cancer (or other such metaphysical crap), but I seriously doubt that just hoping and praying will do anything for their health. And likewise I doubt that it will help them find salvation...

Quote:

quoted from Waking Life
"Actually, there's only one instant, and it's right now, and it's eternity. And it's an instant in which God is posing a question, and that question is basically, 'Do you want to be one with eternity? Do you want to be in heaven?' And we're all saying, 'No thank you. Not just yet.' And so time actually is just this constant saying No to God's invitation. That's what time is, and it's no more 50 A.D. than it's 2001. There's just this one instant, and that's what we're always in." Then she tells me that actually, this is the narrative of everyone's life. That behind the phenomenal differences, there is but one story, and that's the story of moving from No to Yes. All of life is like, "No thank you, no thank you, no thank you," then ultimately it's, "Yes, I give in, yes, I accept, yes, I embrace." That's the journey. Everyone gets to Yes in the end, right?

YES! Yes is a wonderful word, fantabulous it is indeed. It knows no restrictions and opens doors to new experiences everywhere it is uttered with a smile.

Just for a day say yes with a smile to EVERYTHING you read see and hear, regardless of what it is, just be goofy with it for the day and see where it takes you and see how you feel by the end of the day.

It's like opening all of the windows in the house on a breezy warm spring day-refreshing.

No is a restrictive word, using it a lot makes you feel like you are trapped in a dark closet. Try using that to everything all day and see how you feel and where it gets you.

I remember when my nephew first learned the word. He was saying yes with a smile to everything, even stuff he didn't like. It was awesome as his face kept brightening and his smile stuck throughout the day and it had such a contagious effect on me and I felt so joy full to be around him.

He was saying YES to life AS IT IS with a smile and it was wonderful.

I just had to say YES to the power of YES here! It means freedom and acceptance, or freedom through acceptance.

Good post! Yes! :smile:

I want to add the simple dynamic or principle involved here.

YES accepts
NO rejects

YES allows
NO denies

YES opens
NO closes

Do you feel better being accepted or rejected?
Do you feel better be allowed or denied?
Do you feel better being open or closed?

The faith part in the original post has to do with TRUST when using the YES word. Trust that everything is and will be okay in the big scheme of things.

What happens to people around you when you say NO to them a lot, deny, reject and close them in? They become miserable to be around.

What happens to people around you when you say YES to them a lot, accept, allow and open them up? They become enjoyable to be around.

It is a powerful word, both are. It's not a bad idea to come to understand the unique type of power both words wield and how you are using their power in your life to effect it for yourself in your environment.

Just say no to 'no'?

Fuck 'yes'. Is our instinct to embrace the affirmative, to associate it with goodness and kindness any more correct than our instinct to feel jealousy or rage when our ideas and fundamental beliefs are opposed?

'Yes' and 'No' are answers to questions you've never heard, and can't possibly understand.

Ok, I'm done with the pithiness.

so existance is just one big physical manifestation of the reprocusions of the creator saying yes to and accepting all as one thing that is everything and nothing existing and happening all at the same time and infinite number of times and infinitly fast.

or something

I was waiting for someone to spit out that image!

Take first light consciousness in denial of every thought it imagined and it keeps closing in and and in and in on itself in denial until the pressure is so great, it finally says YES and BANG it all came out, like the build up of an orgasm, no no no we mustn't no no no we shouldn't no no no this is wrong, no no no this is too good, oh GOD YES!!!!!!!!!!! BANG :rotfl:
