Re: DAM asked: "Is being born worth it - or is it better to have never been born?"

The last thing, I found, that a person wants when they are 'down' is to be told things like; "You should not feel that way and it is better if you do this and do that". When 'you', human beings, start REALLY Listening to each "other", then you will move forward, instead of moving down that downward...

Re: DAM asked: "Is being born worth it - or is it better to have never been born?"

Who told you - you are living? Are you asking ME? Yes I am. Who told you - you are alive? I didn't say anyone told me -- so I don't understand why you're turning this question on me when it's YOUR question, based on what you've been saying -- although I'm getting the sense that you don't want to ad...

Re: DAM asked: "Is being born worth it - or is it better to have never been born?"

no one who is living ever had the choice of whether to live or not How do you know this? How do you know that there wasn't some awareness and creative surge completely different than what you're aware of now? Who told you - you are living? Are you asking ME? You are the one who made the statement a...

Re: DAM asked: "Is being born worth it - or is it better to have never been born?"

no one who is living ever had the choice of whether to live or not How do you know this? How do you know that there wasn't some awareness and creative surge completely different than what you're aware of now? And why are you acting so enraged about it? So you find yourself alive and you don't like ...

Re: DAM asked: "Is being born worth it - or is it better to have never been born?"

I agree. It is logical to ask if life is worth living if there is no universal purpose to it. Does a child ask if life is worth living if there is no universal purpose? Or... does a child stay open (as Age said) and full of wonderment at what is? Without the influence of adults, would a child see a...

Re: DAM asked: "Is being born worth it - or is it better to have never been born?"

Do you mind me asking: Would you do it all again if the choice was possible would you choose to come here again, knowing what you know now about life and reality? Good question. Yes... I would. I don't really know why... :lol: ...it just seems that there is something amazing or sacred about being i...

Re: What do men and women actually really want from each other?

I wasn't sure about him at first because one cannot tell who people really are by just going on what they write on a forum. But it wasn't until I was feeling really pissed off one day on the forum that I realised what a decent character Harbal actually was. I found that out one day when completely ...

Re: DAM asked: "Is being born worth it - or is it better to have never been born?"

When I had my near-death experience, it did not matter at all to me, one way or the other, whether I remained in this world or didn't. There was absolutely no desire or fear either way. I was just "hanging" there waiting to see if my body was saved by "the humans", and that would determine whether I...

Re: What do men and women actually really want from each other?

I peronally don't think life is worth the addmission fee for a human, but that's just my opinion. A new topic on that subject could be started actually. I wonder if the subject topic ( Is being born worth it - or is it better to have never been born? ) would be worth talking about? :idea: Sounds go...

Re: What do men and women actually really want from each other?

what about attachment? It's something we form isn't it, and yet nothing is ours to attach to as everything is constantly changing, coming and going, it seems there is nothing we can call our own. It seems ONE is a lonely number Some might say that ONE is the ONLY number, and that everything is ours...

There are certain humans that nature doesn't seem to want to have pass on their genes.
Yet there are plenty who pass on their genes to the detriment of humankind. Doesn't seem like nature is controlling that.

Re: What do men and women actually really want from each other?

… Please excuse the length of this... every bit of it is honest and heartfelt from a state of presence. :) What we (you and I) make of what we see is different, of course. We see a lot of the same things, but our perspectives about it are formed (perhaps) by the way we connect the dots...and there ...

Re: Göbekli Tepe

… Despite the effort, we are not connecting. I observe the way you twist and turn every little phrase -- complaining that something isn't answered in one paragraph, when the answer was clearly answered in another paragraph -- claiming that I never answer your questions, which is a lie -- and it's h...

Re: What do men and women actually really want from each other?

… I said I would respond to some more of your comments/questions, but I think I actually already did enough in my last post. Here's what I'd like to add... I think it's helpful not to take any view too seriously. When we start feeling too spun up or discouraged, we can turn our focus to the gentle ...
