Proposition (3)

Post by waechter418 » Sun Jan 03, 2016 2:51 am

Ever man and woman is his/her own creator and has thus infinite self-design possibilities – each of them having, when motivated by the Will & Love to realize Oneself, the potential to bring about a self-image wherein all creations complement each other.

I didn't create myself , idjit. Don't start blaming me for the existence foisted on me by creatures that couldn't control their urges.

Seriously, how did you arrive at this moronic 'philosophy'?

We can influence our fate every day a little bit at least.

By what we do and what we don´t do and how we do what we do.

Every word we say has consequences on our minds and on the minds of people around us.

I'm going to have nightmares about me, alone in vast a white room, with a gene-splicer, forever.

Sorry to hear that your Self is a nightmare - but you are not alone with it.

How so if it is our "fate"?

I try again for Mr Arising´s sake:

We can influence the story of our lives just a little bit.

It´s not perfect yet, I will work on it more and present a new version soon.

We can influence our sake.

We can influence our luck.

We can influence our ... adventure on earth.

I'm not sure. Why don't you go through my posts and refresh my memory.

Besides, if a philosophical system is sound, why would I deviate from it?

I don't think we are self-creators, but self-developers yes, after we formed(our spirit and body accordingly) in nature - itself. And to the extent we develop ourself and others do to, we sit complementing one another, to the extent we make a show of it, we invite criticism, disdain, dislike, hatred, jealousy, envy, otherwise we don't.
