Buddhism isn't a religion, it's a way of life. Plus, it's all about the freedom of speech. As long you don't bring pain to others, you're allowed to think based on your experiences and interpretations.

Go to the library and ask for the Vajracchedikā Prajñāpāramitā Sūtra, u will see that reading the book will enlighten the mind of the poison we have received from Babylon.

Don't doubt me.

I have a long, semi-real world analogy for you guys
that touches on some of my issues

Ok - I was watching a television show about Candy Spelling - and the mansion she built
and the part that struck me as just flat out retarded and irresponsible
was that she had something like - 26 acres hardscaped with imported italian limestone.

Right off the bat - She could have paid a crew of 12 landscapers to maintain a
- completely illustrious garden -
had them employed for the rest of their lives - and for half the price

She could have...paved 6 acres and supplied a re-emerging downtown
with 10 city blocks of - low rent spaces for boutiques, restuarants, small business, and art galleries
exp. as self-centered as this may be...someone like myself
- could have 300 sq ft of space to show my work...and the work of others on a rotating basis

So flash back to actual reality...and I'm at school doing a project
Where we have to cut a piece of stone into cabachons...1 round and 1 oval
and so I get some Mexican Crazy Lace Agate
and as I'm grinding the stones under water
It's creating a blood colored slurry
My hands are cover in "blood" - The water is tinged in "blood"
and I have to keep stopping and washing everything down because it looks horrific

and I'm thinking - this is wrong
and I look back at the italian limestone cutters...Who supplied Candy Spelling
And now I'm the enemy- reaching for the plastics

So she better order some Babylonian grade walls to go with that
Because she's cutting me up...in so many ways.

Cool, does it have anything to do with discussing the number one problem with humanity?

I'm all for people acheiving their own stuff....but seriously

How much does a single person need....

I would much rather take part in bringing - even if it's just for viewing pleasure
Life Pleasure - to many, many more people.


and stop fucking up the earth...


stop eating tuna for 5 years...eat fried sweet potato sushi instead

everyone - tuna fishermen need to be supported during the moratorium
They need to figure this out...I don't know

Our fear of feeling, or more importantly showing our feelings.

We're so deathly afraid of being laid out in exhibition to our peers because we know some will sneer. As time rolls on and society represses the wailing, laughing, screaming, multidimensional men and women inside us till they forget what sunlight feels like, we become those who sneer. We cling to identity presets to stave off the terror of actually becoming an individual, thrusting our limbs out into the elements and utilizing that large portion of the brain that stays dormant most our lives. We collect, and conform. We then look down at the others in their cute little presets, fighting and sneering, but save the deepest disgust for those who have the audacity to face what none of us can, who fearlessly smile and love life as they love themselves in their unique naivete, and infect everyone with their individual brilliance, while we throw proverbial tomatoes at their stage, deep inside wishing that we could be that soiled, crazy diamond screaming upon that rickety stage.

We do live in tribes. The similarities between tribes living in jungles and tribes living in cities are perhaps masked or not always obvious, but they are there.
nah don´t get confused with that urban tribe term, i agree that we still have some legacy of our instincts and is fun to find paralelism in some actitudes that haven´t changed , but our lifestyle is completly mutated from the tribesman life.
The majority of people in urban environments spend their days looking/working for food, create a territory of their own, chill with their friends, play, fuck, breed and eventually die.

The majority of people in tribes spend their days looking/working for food, create a territory of their own, chill with their friends, play, fuck, breed and eventually die.

The particular circumstances may be slightly different (working to get money to buy food vs working to find food, perhaps somewhat better mortality rates) but I would say that a good proportion of urban humanity conducts itself no differently than non-urban humanity. You are just romanticising the concept of living in a pre-urban tribe.

What i mean is that there is no ultimate reason to live. No god to please and no heaven to gain entry to. In 200 years time it will matter not if we lived our lives to the full and saw or did many great things or whether we sat in our bedroom and watched telly all day.
Perhaps that all depends on whether you find a ultimate reason to live - not sure why god or heaven have to exist. I would agree that seeing/doing things that have no impact on the future of the world would be not much different from sitting in the bedroom all day watching telly. Therefore, I'd say that the best way for a life to have meaning would be if it resulted in a better future.
