life?
    #722506 - 07/04/02 01:52 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

The thought of life makes me sick
Life is sick
Life is pointless
Life is what you make
Life is whatever you want it be
Real or not
You have or you don?t
Why have it, but then why not
Religion is fucked up
People are fucked up
What if god is real and what he says is true
Does it matter?
Should any of us matter?
I don?t want to live forever
I don?t want to die
What am I - and for what selfish reason was I created
Out of love
I am but bones and flesh
Am I alone seeing everything everyone else doesn?t?
People say it doesn?t matter as long as you?re happy
Happy is just an emotion like sad or angry
Should it matter what emotion I have
Life IS what you make it
So then what have I made it?
Nothing
Nothing to me
Do people matter at all?
Should anything else
I will soon die and be nothing
And what then what
What was it for?
Nothing I meant nothing
Should it matter if I even did?
Life is like a big black whole
You never see anything and you just keep falling
I want to say I don?t know, but I do
Life hurts so bad it?s full of disappointment and death
People rape each other and kill they do disgusting things, there?s violence everywhere
Everywhere I look there something bad
Even inside of me
I hate to never sleep then when I finally do I wake up to nothing , I know exactly what ill be doing tomorrow and the day after that and week after that and a year after that
Ill be somewhere feeling the same way knowing where I was going
What?s the point of life, to be the best you can to live forever in a paradise on earth
Why would I want to live forever with nothing?
With nobody
But why would I kill myself, to kill something so beautiful so remarkable
???
Really all life is ?is nothing? but people live on because there confused and don?t know where to turn, some people turn to god some don?t.
I?m so sad
And I feel so hurt............
I don?t want to live and I don?t want to die
I?ll wonder this earth my whole life with nothing not knowing what to do then I?ll finally die and it will all be over



any coments??

I quite enjoy life. I just think it is fun. There is a lot to learn and a lot to enjoy. I enjoy you!

I agree life is very beautiful , and brilliant , full of pleasure and excitement, love and creativity, emotion and feeling , depth , taste , touch , its like a miracle , its so complex and delicate , it must be treated with intense care and love . Beautiful smells, life is wonderful I agree, but you have to think beyond that. I have to wonder what it?s all for and what the hell was god thinking when he made us!!!!

These things listed above aren?t always what life is. There are so many things that are sad and sickening. Think what if someone you loved deeply was kidnapped and raped through his /her ass and beaten to death, chopped to little pieces and thrown on your bed. People do this kind of shit, and it scares me. It could happen to me or you any second. But I also try not to think too much of these things, because there not always good to think about. But I also believe that since there is nothing I can do about this life and this world I am living in I should try to be happy and only do what makes me happy. But this is not easy. I can?t smoke marajuana my whole life and shroom, doing these things is really only running away from my problems.

Or where you referring to something else

I definitely agree with the people here who say life is beautiful and worth living... And yes, life is just plain fun.

Sometimes.

I also agree with you and your poem though, munchi. Life can be sick, sad, depressing, and sometimes just plain scary. But of course it is important to try and focus on the good things... On being happy and enjoying life and living it to its fullest. Doing shrooms has actually given me a real lust for life that I have never had before. I never thought a fungus could do that for me, but it is something I am deeply thankful for.

Here is a poem I wrote a while ago, before being introduced to the magic of mushrooms:

Life is nothing
but escaping the cold,
trying to keep warm,
and seeking shelter
from the storm.
Life is nothing
but getting ugly and old,
running from the pain,
gritting your teeth,
just trying to stay sane.
Life is nothing

Nothing happened
but what you remember,
random memories in your head.
Nothing happened
but what you remember,
your memory goes and then your dead.
Nothing happened

Now I tend to think differently though. Life is amazing, beautiful and wonderful. We just need to remember to focus on these aspects of life instead of getting bogged down by the bad parts

These sound like fears to me, not problems. In my opinion, most fear is completely irrational and only serves to make our lives less worth living. Of course, fear of something that could cause you bodily harm, death, or some sort of trouble or pain is understandable.

But what are those fears that you listed serving to do? Nothing but make you worry, make you sad, and make you feel that life is bad. To be truly happy and be able to enjoy life to its fullest, we must learn to control fears of this type. Push them from your head and laugh at them, knowing that you are making a great improvement on your life and your emotional well-being.

Fears like those are just not worth it.

I wasn't suggesting doing mushrooms your whole life as a way to help at all... I was just saying that doing mushrooms has opened up a door in my mind that allowed me to see how truly wonderful life is.

I don't need to do mushrooms my whole life because that door has been opened, and as long as I remember that lesson it will remain opened whether I continue to do mushrooms or not.

It's all about learning from your experiences, and most of all, remembering the lessons you have learned so that you can use them to improve yourself and make your life better. IMHO

i agree completely ! i can find immense awe and beauty in the simplest, most base experiences (and i do) - but that doesn't change some fundamental facts, for example, that suffering exists in immense amounts, that the circumstances of our lives are quite largely outside of our control, that we don't really know who we are, where we are from, or where we are going, that life on earth appears flawed and existence is a paradox (or, more likely, our reason is flawed).

but that's life - make the best of it - nothing matters - yet - some life circumstances are certainly preferrable to other life circumstances - find your preferences, plan for your future. thats what i try to do anyway.

chaos AND order. holding hands in perfect harmony, like two lovers on a warm summer day! after summer, winter, and after winter, summer. expanding and contracting all at once, this beautiful fractal prison provides the tiniest glimpses of what could be.

"take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind
down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
the haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow"
- dylan

You must face your fears... every one.
Pushing them away or running away will only delay the time of confrontation.
Gather strength in the fact that for thousands of years, millions of people have faced the same kinds of fears, over and over again, and when you look at your own fears, they don't look so terrifying anymore. They are basically the same fears viewed through different situations, and people have been overcoming these fears again and again, transmutating them with light.
I have perhaps elaborated too much on my one piece of advice: to illuminate the darkness of your fears with the light of truth, which will lead you to love.

Krishnamurti once said people are afraid of dying because they can't bring their loved ones with them, they can't bring their house, and their possessions along when they die. It's the attachments we make with things and people that give us security and comfort, death will erase all that and bring you down to nothing. its just you and death. no money, no comfort of your family, no nothing. and that's why people are afraid of death. Fear of the unknow is really the same thing, there is no security and psychological comfort when you venture into the unkown.

I agree , I don?t want to leave the people I love , actually I think I went a little crazy while making this thread . I think I?ve been spending to much time in a dark room late a night with my computer , I should get out more , though everything said here has been of much importance to me , and I thank everyone who replied .

That is what scares me about death is the possibility that I might not get to see my girlfriend again...this is no fly by night relationship, I have actually know her 25% of my entire life! I am NOT comfortable in a world without her. Some view love as a weakness, some as a strength, I have not decided...but weakness or strength I have got it, for better or worse:)

I agree wtih munch. life sucks and I am not at all afraid of dying, death would ROCK I would love to die and get away from this shitty life and all these possessions and so called "loved ones" that only dissapoint and create HAVOC. I am SURE that all of you will dissagree but love and possessions all hte "good" things that most people consider to be life are the things that PISS ME OFF. How is loving anyone or owning anything going to make my life full or happy. there is NOTHING in my life that comes anywhere near even being content much less enjoying it. how in the HELL can anyone enjoy living in thes SHITHOLE of a planet. where the only things you see around you are death famin war fascism, and alot of people walking around with this fucked up idea that in the end it is all going to be good. Even God cant save this miserable planet and fucked up life. so why doesnt he just end it and get ME the fuck out of here. You dumbasses who walk around in your little bubble thinking that everything is good can STAY and live out your ignorantly blissful lives.

There I said it.

You are very angry (as you said) and (I hope you don't mind me saying so) I believe this may be why you are so unhappy.

You obviously have had a very bad experience with love, in particular girlfriend/boyfriend relationships so that has, IMO, tainted your idea of what love is. My relationship is not a binding, it is a freeing. My girlfriend fills me with life and joy, she creates no more havoc on me then I do on her

I also know (or at least have this opinion) that possesions and even relationships cannot, alone, make you happy. IMO, happiness must start from within and then move to the external world. You must be at peace internally before you can be at peace externally.

Also, I don't remeber saying that EVERYTHING in life was all peachy. I am not blind, I see the death and war and famine, etc. If you think I am optimistic because nothing ever happened to me than read my post about my girlfriend, who experienced one of the most examined sexual abuse/assualt cases in CA history. Allow me to tell you about how 4 of my best friend all died untimely and preventable within 3 years. Allow me to tell you about when I was a young lad and my mother kicked me out of the house because she couldn't afford her pills and litterally went insane, and somehow I had to explain this to my 8 year old, crying sister. Certaintly I have not had the worst life my any stretch but I don't think life is happy because I am ignorant.

You said "the only things you see around you are death famin war fascism". That is not all I see. Sure, I see that to, but I also see a lot of opportunity to make it better. I also see parents raising their children to smile, and people who care.

While I don't see the need to call me names, I respect your opinion, even if I disagree
