http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgNPGBp4Ygg 'The riddle' by Five for fighting The first step to a perfect belief system is to determine whether we are living as components in a flawless system, i.e. does everything EXCEPT FOR the system we are in have inherent flaws? How can it be perfect? It can be perfect if it is not governed by a God or Goddess, or by physics, but by an all-knowing, all-seeing system of unbreakable, unconditional, absolutely universal law, a force that will never have awareness. The second step is logically believing, given that that is in the affirmative, that major suffering cannot be perennial and that awareness never ends for any entity. The third step is to determine all the reasons for that limited suffering. The meaning of life is this - We have hard times, some of us. This is to test our level of compassion in hard times. If we pass these tests, we're the best of heroes, and our tragedies and successes will somehow be highlighted by this system of law when it's workings and processes are complete and finished. FIVE FOR FIGHTING - "The Riddle" There was a man back in '95 Whose heart ran out of summers But before he died, I asked him Wait, what's the sense in life Come over me, Come over me He said, Son why you got to sing that tune Catch a Dylan song or some eclipse of the moon Let an angel swing and make you swoon Then you will see... You will see Then he said, Here's a riddle for you Find the Answer There's a reason for the world You and I... Picked up my kid from school today Did you learn anything cause in the world today You can't live in a castle far away Now talk to me, come talk to me He said, Dad I'm big but we're smaller than small In the scheme of things, well we're nothing at all Still every mother's child sings a lonely song So play with me, come play with me And Hey Dad Here's a riddle for you Find the Answer There's a reason for the world You and I... I said, Son for all I've told you When you get right down to the Reason for the world... Who am I? There are secrets that we still have left to find There have been mysteries from the beginning of time There are answers we're not wise enough to see He said... You looking for a clue I Love You free... The batter swings and the summer flies As I look into my angel's eyes A song plays on while the moon is high over me Something comes over me I guess we're big and I guess we're small If you think about it man you know we got it all Cause we're all we got on this bouncing ball And I love you free I love you freely Here's a riddle for you Find the Answer There's a reason for the world You and I... Does God exist? I have no idea. It really isn't my focus in life. My focus in life is to surrender to a path of compassion for others, you might say 'You haven't done much' That's because my level of surrender is so extreme http://www.suicideforum.com/showthread.php?t=71315 . I would do more, I would travel the world and help people, but my body and brain are too sick. If your health is good and you have some spare cash, I urge you to help others less fortunate. Like a sick child in Africa. I do it through World Vision. **** the political stuff, these are children's lives, and their family is helped too. I receive photos, med reports, letters, pics and updates, oh and drawings. That's the best thing I have ever done in my life. And that's not the only thing you can do, but the first step you take is the longest stride my friends. I know I have flaws, I accept you no matter your flaws, and I'm sensitised to pain and shock, so don't abuse me please ._. . Be an instrument of good, instead of ordinariness. So that one day you will rise above the masses. Do it for others? No. **** them. If you think of others too much and you are not built to handle it, you'll break. Do it for yourself. Forgiveness of yourself and others is only found in compassion for others. The direct result of success and fulfilling relationships is happiness, but truest happiness only arrives from long-suffering in a path dedicated to compassion, but it's never too late to shoot for the stars as ***a single deed can make up for a lifetime of hate***, no matter who you are, so do whatever it takes not to be destroyed by the darkness. Compassion for others is a bug I hope most catch, it's fun, especially when you think it's all over . Be gentle to all. Remember, each day's a gift and not a given right.~ This post is devoted to my best friend Kate/NoGood who helped me today in msn, and to Irish Doll who added me to Messenger today. Also to AlexDanish who was very sweet when I was in a black place. And to those who will ever suffer or go through tragedy, good or bad.
