I am a strong proponent of giving up.
No, don’t get me wrong.
It is just that I am a fierce seeker of solution and I don’t dwell on a predicament much. If something doesn’t work, I walk away faster. That’s the giving up.
I will change things a million times until they are comfortable.
It is often preached to us to change our ways by religious leaders.
Some will say, the number of pants you are removing, or the men you are sleeping with, is detrimental to your future.
Or, the way you’ve taken to the bottle, there’s a danger lurking ahead.
Have they asked one if they believe in a future or even if they seek a different non-culumitous one?
I believe it is all for good, but the problem I have is that no one asked me if I still want to live.
No one has or will even take time to listen to why I even feel that the lurking danger is good because it means death and a getting away from this place.
The hedonistic commandment states that life is for the living and it is to be enjoyed fully.
The religious thought, abhors this for its reasons. The biggest reason is that one will not see heaven. But what is heaven?
I have been around 3 decades and for nearly a decade, I’ve had the chance to interrogate that much and I’ve come to some conclusions.
Heaven is a place in the spiritual realm, that can be felt even visited while someone is still alive in the physical body.
Further, it is a boring place.
There are multiple existences that one can capture after death. Death is not final and I tend to agree with the proposers of the thought that at the point of exit from the earth, one follows or creates a word that matches with their dominant thought.
So, a Christian will wait for Jesus, a Hindu a holy cow, a Buddhist, just float towards light, etc.
The questions and grey areas in religious texts are easily answered by the self. It is not easy to explain to anyone.
Also, if one found happiness in the bottle, in fucking, in all those, who tells you that they won’t find happiness in the life after in those things or in the things that represents those things? Who is to decide?
So, when you see someone down and wanting out. It is better to listen and not give advice. This is the first rule.
The second, do you have a way of helping? If yes, help. If no, leave them alone.
Life ultimately ends, spirits of ancestors and those who we briefly meet on earth would want a certain ending, but who is to chose other than the free-will human being currently existing in the physical realm?
Who is to chose what to encounter in the after life other than the person?
I believe we reincarnate. We come back to try to clear up some stuff.
It is a loss to the person if they fail to do that.
