It's good to let things breathe in your imagination because often your initial response to it is not the best thought-through response. I savour little glimpses of life. Mine and those of people who turn me sideways and around. Friend or stranger. Even a child. (the world looks different from down there) Sometimes an author, photographer, artist. I let things saturate and incubate here. Hopefully, deeper meanings can percolate up and flower.

Things just suck, people are stupid.

I'm such a perfectionist; failure is worse than death, less than stellar is terrible.

*SOB* *SOB* I'm better off dead.

Life never unfolds the way I want, I'm such a loser.

*SNIFF* Life shouldn't be this hard, What did I do to deserve this?

Feeling complete and total despair settling on your shoulders, even as you rise from bed each morning…

* SIGH* What a joyless, tedious, striving treadmill life is.

Oh wait... what about the desolation and emptiness that envelopes your soul when you slip in the bathroom...

WAAH!! what can possibly go right when you're down and out?

Doom and Gloom
Grim and Bleak
Wretched and miserable beyond description...
I'm old, broke and fat...
unlovely and unloved.
... Life is TRULY terrible

Aaahh... depression, isn't it grand?

Please, please, read this story.

It's a story to make you feel both truly pathetic and truly blessed

Life is so unfair...
... whinge... whine... moan...groan...

Snap out of it, will ya?

yes, that's so true. the story makes me feel so lucky and blessed, makes me wonder why i complained so much when there are others far worst than me... but the incredible thing is some of these (supposedly) 'far worst' than me people are so strong and show such grit and determination to keep on living no matter what.

yes i agree with her... life and death is the same.

"The Descent into Hell" in this week's The Herald (p.24) is both interesting and relevant. It is, as the article says, a consoling doctrine within Catholicism for people who feel despair and desolation.

This lady, Haw Ching is EXCEPTIONALLY courageous in her suffering. What, for me, is most inspiring in her outlook is this statement: "... it didn’t matter how long I lived as long as life is meaningful."

Whether life is meaningful or not is always actually left to the individual to intepret based on what current criteria is used. The criteria of beliefs, emotional attachments and conventional values.

The individual contract with life was made and forgotten but that remains binding.

The means on how to live well and properly is more important than the idealized goal. Righteousness don't appear just because of physically joining a Club. That is more deeply rooted thing.

Beware of getting too attached to "Piss and Moan"(naturally). It grows one one like all singularly strong and favorite attachments.

"who made the contract? "

Monotheists will insists that we are Created (and therefore owned). That the contract could only have been made with Him. But the "Him" is a Concept that depends on the person holding it. A highly evolved person naturally can conceptualize something lofty while an unevolved person, something not much better than that of a primitive war god enabling fear and demanding obedience. So beware of the "God" we worship.

Christians are on the safe side in emphasizing love. Anything less is untenable.

I can even take it with a grain of salt, its expected 'Only way' assertion. ;)

What if we are in fact the Co-creator of this Space Time Continnum? Every living thing.

Shakespeare wrote, "We are the stuff that dreams are made of...."
He seemed to have that certain insight beyond.

But for now, I should say that Mind makes Matter, never the other way around(as Seth and Buddha). And Matter is but slowed-down Energy.
