My question is why you let dumb people make you sad and bitter. I think that's dumb. Who cares how dumb they are? Let them be dumb for fucks sake.

In reply to:

NO ONE pisses you off or MAKES you feel sad. These are reactions that you have subconsciously chosen. You are free to unchoose them at anytime, but you must first take responsibility and stop looking "out there".

You think that you are making a statement about others, but you are only revealing your inability to stay centered when another does not meet your expectations.

Master this one thing and you will go further than years of tripping, meditation and book study.




No kidding. It took me twenty years to learn this. The best way to live life is to not react at anything. Just relax, think, act, in that order. Most of use aren't actually in control of ourselves. Can you really not help but get sad or pissed off because somebody you can't control does something? That's slavery man. Getting pissed off is a bad habit that we have to make us feel comfortable. Everybody does lots of dumb things all the time, and if you dwell on them you think that's all there is. If you don't like people they won't like you. Accept their 'flaws', and they just might accept yours.

You said:

MY WAY is being tolerant of people and trying to percieve a situation with regard to people's feelings and opinions.

And then you said:

people who follow blindly to the beat of the GW war drums are FUCKING STUPID and are worthless as individuals


You would do well to think about Swami's advice. If you can't see that, then you have to ask yourself why.

my point here is that the average 'sheep' is not taking anyone else's well-being into account. they want what is easiest to accept. yeah maybe in the whole it really doesn't matter how people think or act, but when people suffer or die because of it, its gone too far.

If you're frightened of dying and you're holding on.you'll see devils tearing your life away.
But...if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels
Freeing you from the earth.
