I have found my own personal truths as to the reason for being. Not *THE* truth... *MY* truth. I happily share my truth with those who want to listen, but I'm under no obligation to prove my truths. And realistically, there's no way for that proof to exist.


"My truth"

Self-centred as always. Belief-centric as ever.

A child that believes in Santa has no obligation to prove his existence either. Santa's existence may be true in the child's mind but it doesn't mean it's the truth. The same goes for unicorns and fairies. :roll:

By the way, Superman - as a fictitious character - and Gandhi - a real one - is irrelevant to the point I was getting across, but, if you want to make it part of the point I can put it to you this way: Gandhi, as a real person, could not be more influential than Superman, a fictitious extraterrestrial from planet Krypton. The truth is that, worldwide, Superman's ways appeared to be more appealing than Gandhi's. :D

Looks like the pot is calling the kettle black.
Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? Morpheus

Yes, Summerlander. *MY TRUTH*.
You seem to take that statement personally and you also seem to make your statement as some kind of attack... trying to hurt me or something. LoL

Of course it's self-centered (just not in the way you think it is).
And of course it's belief-centric... to anyone who isn't me, that is.

I'm really not going to get into why you're misunderstanding, because I'm certain you wouldn't understand why I do the things I do or say the things I say. You've proven that (and I don't mean this with any ill-intent) you're simply not ready to understand... you're, no doubt, going to take that as a personal insult though.

By the way, Superman - as a fictitious character - and Gandhi - a real one - is irrelevant to the point I was getting across, but, if you want to make it part of the point I can put it to you this way: Gandhi, as a real person, could not be more influential than Superman, a fictitious extraterrestrial from planet Krypton.

It's okay to be influential in different ways.

Here is a great video. I found it very interesting and insightful, and it makes a lot of sense too! I hope others find it the same!

I really only had to see the title of the video... lol

YES, violence is definitely sometimes the answer. It's true, some people don't listen to anything but violence, this is a fact that I've known for a very long time. However, it's the Intent behind the violence that's more important at directing that violence than violence itself.

Thank you for posting that! I really do wish more people would realize it too. :)
Especially here in Canada... >.>

I know what your saying about intent and such Ryan but itits kinda like...I dunno... No shit?

I still don't really understand what you mean by spiritual and tending towards "Love", it sounds like any normal person who does something they feel is a good thing to do is a spiritual person... why even have the label spiritual at all? What is the difference, thats what im trying to say.

You'd be surprised how many people have absolutely NO IDEA about Intent.
If you look closely, you'll see some examples of it in this very thread. :)

That's the point actually... there is no difference. They're just labels.

SPIRITUAL LOVE- THIS KIND OF LOVE HARD TO SEE, COZ IT DONT NEED ANY KIND OF BOUNDARIES OR CONDITIONS, AND IT ALSO CALLED UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. (SIMPLE AS THAT) A MOTHER'S LOVE TOWARDS HER CHILD IS A GREAT EXAMPLE

WEN IT COMES TO "LOVE" TOO MANY VARIATIONS- LOOK AROUND. DONT NEED ANY EXPLANATIONS. JUST ONE EXAMPLE- HE LOVES TO B**G HER. IT DOESNT MEAN HE ACTUALLY LOVES HER. PHYSICAL LOVE CANNOT BE ASSOCIATED BY SPIRITUAL LOVE. WAT U GUYS THINK. IS THIS CLASSIFICATION MAKES SENSE? AM I RIGHT? OR AM JUST GETTING DELUSIONAL?
I see the Truth now.

I think you need to lay off the caps.
