My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
Most times, that's true! Sometimes, it depends..:)
It may not be the only sin, but it is certainly a big one. I completely concur. Life is a gift. Enjoy it.
Nice one, NP! Life should truly be savoured.
I agree, and as Janene pointed out 'life is a gift'..: )
I certainly agree with this!!!
I agree. This is true even when it sometimes seems to be impossible.One way to turn life into a burden is by not accepting yourself for who you are. It's good to improve yourself but it will still be you. Struggling against playing your unique role in life instead of accepting it makes life a burden.
With all due respect, therapists or clergies probably won't agree with you here: those who perceive life as burden are primarily their clients or "brothers and sisters", rather than sinners...:):)
So, let's enjoy life and sin not!
and try our very best to make up for it :)
This is a great attitude. I wish I was better at living it.
And that *sin*, is due to our *fundamental ignorance* of who and what we truly are!
Terrific - but then that is the lot of humankind - to be involved in the pain and happiness of life - to treat it as the real thing that it is - and not always to step back and take a sublime view.
Very nail-on-head insight! Thank you.
truly a light ,should not waste such a tiny period called life,lets try to find joy of its hidden in every moment.god bless NP
Glad I checked in. As miserable as my life seems physically, emotionally and spiritually, my glass is more than half-full. It's part of a religion that's the closest to my own views (half of it, anyway), Zoroastrianism. It's an obligation to the universe--and to understand sin as a "mistake" born of emotional or mental anguish--to nurture anger, hatred, and see life as monstrous, a lo Schopenhauer or Hobbes--is a sin. Put out good vibes in this dimension, not b/c some future reward, but as a civilized, evolved being. In that sense, we all sin at some time; the important thing is not to hold on to it, and see your mistake. Resilience is the key; for depression, gratitude and voluntary action w/compassion is the cure. I hope I'm clear; not thinking very straight these days. Sweet tides, Linda
