Re: What happens after suicide?

So what actually is it about suicide that makes death via suicide less auspicious than a natural death? I am not entirely arguing against you; The more I think about it, the more I agree that your model is quite valid - in which the last moment of death plays a extremely important role, especially ...

Re: Tips on clearing nasal breathing

On topic, here is a slightly humorous video talking about biological flaws in human body design (compared to other animals), including about the flaws of human sinuses. This seem to imply: human bodies are built/evolved for variety of DESIRES, and TOO MUCH DESIRES makes it wonky & too difficult to h...

Re: In between Taoism and Buddhism

Oops sorry, I wish to retract point #2 regarding " 2) Taoism supports duality , while Buddhism is about non-duality. As in Taoism, " Followers must accept that there is duality in everything (Yin Yang)". " It appears Taoism supports non-duality too, sorry I did not see this earlier sublimeness: http...

Re: What happens after suicide?

Do you know many people that have had insight into the dependently originated nature of phenomena because they have died of cancer(for example)? So where is the guarantee (where is your proof) that a long and tortuous death is better (or more beneficial) than a quick one by one's-own-hand? We have ...

Re: What happens after suicide?

Thus suiciders would have less chances and time to learn the deeper impact lessons during life that could lead to liberation, thus more like getting stuck in the loop of life and death, than compared to cancer or other possible death outside of one's own direct control. Do you know many people that...

Re: What happens after suicide?

Why do you presume that a slow and "natural" death by cancer (for example), is any more liberatory than death by suicide? I am interested to hear your logic. One possible logical explanation would be based on "time" and "ignorance". First of all, let's start with the definition of liberation: https...

Re: What happens after suicide?

Let old age & illness naturally take it course, in order to learn the lesson about death and impermanence sufferings be known in full, in order to not repeat the horribly futile loops of samaric reincarnations of life and death again and again. Experiencing suffering per se does not necessarily tea...

Re: Antinatalism and Renunciation

Technically, even Buddhism doesn't solve suffering, if you believe Buddhist cosmology. After some amount of time(millions of kalpas, or whatever) the universe will simply die out and be reborn. The whole cycle just repeats it'self forever. So technically the only way for suffering to end, is for th...

Re: What happens after suicide?

So a person that commits suicide with a mind full of hatred or sorrow will have a different rebirth than, for example, the Arhats that committed suicide during the Buddha's time, in order to avoid relapsing into an afflicted state before their parinirvana. Interesting point you have raised there Gr...

Re: The World’s First Poor Rich Country

I think the shift in values needs to move towards well-being, in the eudaimonic sense, and away from materialism or the pursuit of wealth, status, power, and the like. In the USA we are trained to pursue the latter, and at least in most cases at the expense of the former. Is anyone trained to pursu...

I hope these internet resources might be useful for VPN / overcoming regional restrictions. Open Source tools tend to require more time for experimentation and setups. In case VPN does not work, maybe consider using proxy servers too. https://www.fossmint.com/watch-blocked-youtube-videos/ https://ww...
