Is common place in my head the last few years. Especially at night when I go to bed. Wondering if at the age 43 this is normal I know it is extremely bothersome :gaah:
I like that.........I had this problem a little bit......for me i came to realize it was that i wasnt living my life as i knew in my heart I should of been living.....I felt as though I was wasting much time and not being true to myself......Not to accomplish any one specific goal or task but as a whole.......once i changed some of my behaviors, and started living as I beleive i was supposed to, the fear of death quickly leftCarl Jung said something like: The fear of dying is really the fear of living. Thinking of death reminds us that we have things still to do in our life. Most people who have really lived their life aren't really afraid of dying. It's the people who haven't done what their soul tells them to do that are.
I recommend you ask yourself what you are afraid of doing because it is usually a good indicator of what you need to do.
Very nice! :2thumb: (I also follow the spiritual of the native americans )I am 47 and more spiritual in the native american sense than religious.
Much like thunderdan19 said I try to be more affectionate with family. I make a real effort not to let the last thing I say to a loved one be negative. You never know when that will be the last thing the ever heard from you.
I watched Kung Fu Panda last night and they had a quote. It's corny but rings kinda true.
Yesterday is the past, tomorrow is uncertain but today is a gift that is why it is called the present.
technology singularity here we comeI have contracted with a relative's biotech co. for a secondary reprieve. The system will excise my brain, hook my brain up to a computer, and we go from there. It costs almost $750k. What will this be like? Think of Stephen Hawking. That is the next step on the stairs to eternity.
What makes Man different than animals ?my life hasn't been golden by far, but much better than some. I never craved riches, as I know that it can be more of a curse than a blessing to have an abundance; if you don't use it for lifting up others.
Grizzly Adams was a symbol of what I thought Id be like when I got older..
It just seems there isn't enough time on the clock.. and the clock is ticking. No one has given me a countdown number, but I do know the men in my family check out before 65;with only a couple exceptions.
Days fly by and years just keep rolling off quickly. Mostly the fear of the unknown. Not knowing what's to come bugs the ch!t out of me. My dad believed that once you dead your done, gone, no more -
I use to be a decent bible thumper, until I ask'd god to search my soul and all of a sudden It was like I was put in isolation and shame fell upon my life.
Maybe this is why Humans need " Hope" to inspire fulfillment.
This is the very thing that separates us from all other living thing on this planet. When I am asked to show me proof of "GOD" I try to draw the line between animals and humans. This " line " is helps me hang on. How is it we are the only beings in this vast space that Inspires hope for an after life?
Why are we the only beings that has to atone for SIN. My dogs has no grief, guilt for his sin. My Dog Places a stumbling block before me, causes me to cuss, and he kills for no other reason than for sport. He doesn't obey - Some times. He is actually minds better than most kids but I'm trying to draw an example about how is it we are the only ones that have to the burden of SIN.
I mean I wasn't even there when Adam and eve sinned. Why couldn't God wipe sin from the world like a fly in your house. Why is it that we have to walk in the mess our parents made with no chance to fix it. What would the world been like if Adam and eve hadn't sinned, was Sin coming or was Sin always present? It just pisses me off...not knowing..and having to fret over it. Whould be nice to have a " RED Phone " to GOD.
Assuming your religion believes in sin and is guilt based. Mine does not. As for choice, we do a real shitty job of choosing the right things to do as humans versus animals.What makes Man different than animals ?
A hawk sees better. A horse runs faster. A lion is more ferocious. Whales communicate from one side of the Earth to the other without the benefit of electronics. They all have a nature given by God and they follow it. I believe this pleases God. They do exactly what God created them to do !
Man has a natural side also and without God , he follows his nature but this is not enough to please God , for man to just follow his own nature.
The one thing God gave man that separates him from the animals is the ability to rise above his own nature and become like God.
If man fails to do this, he refuses the gift God has offered to him.
This is the only unforgivable sin, to blaspheme against the holy ghost.
Man is the only creature that God created and gave this choice to.
The ability to choose is the difference that sets man above the other living creatures God made.
Where there is no choice, there is no sin. We have a choice!
