    The meaning of life....

    Post by Guest on Thu 20 Sep 2007, 8:40 pm

    >_> one word...pointless....


    life is but the path that leads you to death....

    it is but what little time you have between when you were born and when you die

    >_> it's full of horror and suffering and pain....to make someone happy...someone must give up their own happiness...

    -nods is agreement-
    There is also the thrill of life, the thrill of being rebelious.
    Whatever you do, you'll die at the end. Why not do something that'll make you be recorded into future history?
    I'm still interested in that GUNDAM plan you have.

    Not much people look at the death section in their newspaper...


    Go do some UNIQUE, create something that people will recognized you for.
    Like this:

    I agree with you in part, life is suffering. But we do not necessarilly need to give up our own happiness to make someone else happy. I often increase my happiness by sharing it with others. As to the purpose of life, that is impossible to know...

    lol....at times it seems that way......but there's often an actual loss where someone does feel pain....it's just not direct sometimes......oftentimes it's indirect....and the pain may be very small and therefore, even that person may not realize it.....

    for kito...it's just like a T-account....for every Debit (happiness) there must be a Credit of equal value (sadness/pain.suffering)

    My personal belief is that happiness is just lessened suffering. If you walk around in the dead of winter, then stick your hand in the fridge, you will feel warm, even though you are still cold. I think that we are constantly suffering, and that this feeling called "happiness" is produced when our suffering is slightly and temporarily alleviated.

    so life is just a path filled with sorrow and pain and suffering that eventually leads us to a place where none of that exists.......

    Unless the Freudian psychologists are right, and we just dream forever after we die... That would suck.

    Why don't you help EVERYONE and suck the Sun towards the Earth?
    I'm sure you'll end up in future history for quite a while.

    Well, our existence may be dark indeed, but that only seems to make the light of altruism shine brighter...

    "Under heaven all can see beauty as beauty only because there is ugliness.
    All can know good as good only because there is evil.

    Therefore having and not having arise together.
    Difficult and easy complement each other.
    Long and short contrast each other:
    High and low rest upon each other;
    Voice and sound harmonize each other;
    Front and back follow one another.

    Therefore the sage goes about doing nothing, teaching no-talking.
    The ten thousand things rise and fall without cease,
    Creating, yet not.
    Working, yet not taking credit.
    Work is done, then forgotten.
    Therefore it lasts forever"

    - Tao Teh Ching - (2)

    He is my idol. xD I learned about him in my Cantonese classes.
    For JK, I'll like to debit my happiness and never credit. :/
    Credit on my bank account would be nice.

    There is a meaning.
    We are just little white lab mouses being tested around by a greater power.
