What is your opinion on my view?
It all falls apart like sand from sand castles. Sand and dust! If you're looking for what remains, isn't that the ticket? IE remaining is counter productive. pardon me :mrgreen:

Re: Greta Thunberg

You know the person is just a vehicle and, of course, standard practice to shoot the messenger. So we say don't shoot the messenger in reaction. We say somone is this, or that, but it's a poor attempt to shut someone up. Let the truth speak for itself, and not make personal attacks! If you meet the ...

Re: Greta Thunberg

In the near future we may see a carbon tax for paying lip service in support of our own pet theories and flights of fancy. Then saying someone is full of hot air will have a new unique meaning. ! :offtopic: :tongue: Poor people won't be able to afford to speak?! The elites will continue to run their...

Greta opening words at the climate action summit were: "this is all wrong, I shouldn't be up here."

Re: Right-wing psychology

'Bread and circuses' might be palliative for some people but the class/racial tensions are part and parcel of a sharp dip in quality of life. Far be it from me to cheer-lead equality though, who wants to give up all their stuff? :thinking:

Re: Right-wing psychology

Anger is huge and hugely poisonous, fer sure. And a big part of the real destructiveness of the current flood of anger is that most people never learn a constructive way to deal with their anger ... or to even recognize it that it's there! Therapy can help, a lot. Perhaps what we need is an army of...

Re: Thanks guys and apologies!

I don’t have the courage to be tested by wrathful Bodhisattvas right now. I have offended Vairocana’s lineages. If it wasn't intentional then it's not bad. Karma is intention! :rolling: A lot of people tend to dish out unsolicited information. I imagine it goes like this: " What I think is importan...

Re: Animal Activist: Let Mosquitoes Bite You As They Are "Mothers" Trying To Feed Their Babies

Samsara is ALL conditioned existence not just the bad bits or the bits of which we disapprove. Without putting words into your mouth, it seems logical that samsara in this instance is also the bits we like and hold sacred?! I mean samsara could be just a tiny enclave in a seething mass of chaos. Of...

Re: Why do monks and nuns deny Romantic Sexual Love?

I wonder sometimes if the percentages of child abuse are really more prevalent in religion (all) or more reviled. If we look at the news teachers seem to appear all the time and if it is a woman teacher and male student the attitudes are not the same if it is reversed. I am fairly positive there is...

Re: Why do monks and nuns deny Romantic Sexual Love?

A good monastic wastes no time on such poisons. They look at them like you look at a dog turd on the side of the road. I'm sick of truth. i'm sick of the reason and sick of the turd. Now, in contrary, there's probably a massive positive correlation between less murder and biological appeasement (re...

Re: America is hooked on violence

America is hooked on security and outsourcing (violence). As a species many of us have become increasingly voyeuristic. on TV a whole bunch of heroes and zero's. 'How it looks' and outsourcing are very connected! just in case. :twothumbsup: It doesn't help that our biological hedonic set point is se...

Re: Cold Showers

My apologies, that was a lazily crafted post on my mobile unit. I imagine the spartans would eschew such a practice. In fact I don't even know if they showered regularly.

Re: Cold Showers

I wonder if its like a sequence of repetitive music or a mixtape. Each piece is so dreadful that the change comes as an excitement?! In other words the main benefit of a 'cold shower' is that it stops, sort of like a retrospective thankgoodness. Let us swing to and fro and may the following branch n...

Re: in search of a ethical way to deal with spiders

Hmm, not much of a negotiation when the spiders are only little. I mean if they we're big enough then you'd have to harm them, because a 360 million year old species doesn't deal, it is stuck in it's ways (unless you use a non lethal deterrant or move house). BTW why am I posting in a 4 year old thr...
