    Default How often do you think how silly life is

    How often do you think , how silly life is ?

    Silly/ adj. having or showing a lack of common sense or judgment; absurd and foolish.

    I watch the TCM channel and see these beautiful actors, actresses, in their important roles impressing millions of fans and viewers. All wish we could be them, to have their lives.
    Then In a heartbeat, they are old, decaying and dead and forgotten . Fin !

    And our geniuses. What have they solved? homeless, hungry? starving? disease? aging? How about Loneliness? NOPE
    They have solved how to make more money. There is no money in these other things I mention or they would have been solved.

    We all know this, have it figured out, yet we buy in

    Looking at things squarely, we are playing a game. And the game is somewhat meaningless, as all games are. They are fun and meaningful in the moment, then forgotten.
    Who won the World series 6 years ago? The Stanley cup 10 years ago?
    Who cares?
    Yet we can't help but take it all so seriously as its happening . I do , then I dont, then I do.

    I guess we're here to experience it as is. So our race differences and the **** storm they are causing is supposed to be as is. We are all playing out our part for the universes amusment.

    I love the question, Why am I me? and not someone else?

    Well, that's it, no revelations here. Just silliness, add some if you like

    Too late. I came too far being me and I'm not giving me up. So, .... sorry, you can't be me. And, no offense, I don't want to be you. And, just maybe nobody else wants to be you either. So essentially, you got stuck playing you because no one else wanted the part. And a fine job of being you you're doing.

    Soooooo, three cheers, two beers and look in the mirror. (You may need to do the three cheers, two beers and look in the mirror a few times). But after a while, when you look in the mirror you may not look so much like you. Then, for a while at least, you can try and pretend you are not you, but rather that other fella you see staring back at you in the mirror.

    But I have a feeling that after that little charade, you'll come to the conclusion that being you is the best thing you can do.
    I am enlightened, ............ Oh wait. That's just the police shining their spotlights on me.

    I have always thought there is a very comical aspect to all that stuff of "i'm this or that"

    Like someone saying "i'm a doctor, i have 40 years of experience!" and expects people to somehow care or act amazed. Who cares?

    Someone could be the king and still slip on the soap taking a shower and then be found in a ridiculous, comical position that would make even the most serious person on this planet to laugh uncontrollably, and so what?

    Taking oneself too seriously, because of life achievements, takes away from just "being human", because in the end, someone can also die while eating an olive and no matter how high in society or life that person went, it all ended with a stupid olive stuck on their throat, that's all there is to it

    Life is so silly
    I bet you're naked under those clothes, how indecent of you...

    It is all so fake, but that is the challenge of waking up to the illusory nature of "reality". Double fake because those that knew more than me exploited their knowledge and power to twist even the fake fake and make it harder to thrive in love and harmony.

    This world is already a beautiful place, just go out into nature and see it. These clowns cannot take it down.

    The game really is almost over now.

    We live in a very much well built hyper-reality, waking up from it only takes you to another level of it, if you go talk to people, they mostly wish or have this idea of 'waking up' but they don't understand or could put into a specific idea or concept what 'waking up is'. Waking up is used as a way to achieve something, put you in a state of longing for a 'better reality', and once you finally 'wake up' is into this more perfect reality, but... it's just another wrapper around you

    Most people truly don't know what to expect, they think it's going to be 'light and love', stable, clean and pure. All of that is based on the same concept that has ruled the world for thousands of years. That being "The next world after this is perfect" or "Heaven" etc

    But who knows, i for sure don't.

    My experience of life cannot be described as silly. We are not given the opportunity to change anything. The money/slave system sucks all good from the world. Joy is not possible except to fools or the temporarily blind. Compassion, anger, defiance, and finally sadness replace all opposite feelings we bring to life when we arrive. Greed, stupidity and evil seem to be the required route on Earth. All the goodness and hope we bring into life it seems must be cruelly extinguished, most of all, love. For our good we receive evil. Should we then confidently expect that if our spirits survive our bodies that we can expect sweetness and light? Therein may lie the silliness.

    From a Buddhist point of view, no

    The expectation that 'surviving the suffering of this world' will lead to a better one, immediately turns thing around and causes damage to the soul, so reincarnation, if possible, will be on a lower level than before

    It's like saying "i worked so hard to help those people, so therefore i must for sure have won a better afterlife!" and nope, the person did it with a purpose, one of "if i do nice things i'll earn a reward in the afterlife". And then just there, even if it was one year or 50 or whatever, they have causes themselves the most harm and took several steps back, they did it for a gain, for themselves, earning your way to a nice life after this one through the suffering of others? Nope

    Do not hope or expect anything, it is what make life silly. Be aware of the 5 basic senses we have, do not get much attached to it and life won't be silly, and anyone can experience that, you will see what is what, how life can be silly after that?
    To know the truth is to get hurt, most of us are addicted to daily life and to withdrawn from it, is a very hard task and yes it hurts, since nobody wants to get hurt, pretending is the easiest way.

    I always found it interesting that the word 'silly' comes from the German word 'selig' meaning 'holy'.

    They have solved how to make more money. There is no money in these other things I mention or they would have been solved.

    We all know this, have it figured out, yet we buy in

    Looking at things squarely, we are playing a game. And the game is somewhat meaningless, as all games are. They are fun and meaningful in the moment, then forgotten.
    Who won the World series 6 years ago? The Stanley cup 10 years ago?
    Who cares?
    Yet we can't help but take it all so seriously as its happening . I do , then I dont, then I do.

    I guess we're here to experience it as is. So our race differences and the **** storm they are causing is supposed to be as is. We are all playing out our part for the universes amusment.

    I love the question, Why am I me? and not someone else?

    Well, that's it, no revelations here. Just silliness, add some if you like
    I have always thought there is a very comical aspect to all that stuff of "i'm this or that"

    Like someone saying "i'm a doctor, i have 40 years of experience!" and expects people to somehow care or act amazed. Who cares?

    Someone could be the king and still slip on the soap taking a shower and then be found in a ridiculous, comical position that would make even the most serious person on this planet to laugh uncontrollably, and so what?

    Taking oneself too seriously, because of life achievements, takes away from just "being human", because in the end, someone can also die while eating an olive and no matter how high in society or life that person went, it all ended with a stupid olive stuck on their throat, that's all there is to it

    Life is so silly

    I love this post. And then we find out that so many things that we consider life's achievements, like a doctorate, or a high paying job are really just a reflection of how programmable we are. How many questions will we NOT ask. At least in most cases.

    Every day at some point I think I am in Clown World!

    It is all so fake, but that is the challenge of waking up to the illusory nature of "reality". Double fake because those that knew more than me exploited their knowledge and power to twist even the fake fake and make it harder to thrive in love and harmony.

    This world is already a beautiful place, just go out into nature and see it. These clowns cannot take it down.

    The game really is almost over now.
    It's really a challenge when the programming really begins to crumble. At first you get a small piece falling down... Then there are several at a time...then chunks of the wall start breaking apart...and on and on and on...Clown world, the house of mirrors, the roller coaster, the bumper cars...all of them collapsing one by one.

    I give up in this silly world. I am staying in bed today. I have a man who gambles all of his money away. It happens over and over. He has not touched me in four years. How silly is that? I am a warm, loving, genuine, honest person. Time to get off this merry go round. Things will not change until I change. Today I am going to stop cleaning up after him and stop paying his way. I am putting out an add that I am looking for a room mate when my darling daughter goes to college. I am going to experience life and not just cook and clean for someone who is not grateful. I am funny, witty, comical and warm. I am a damn good catch! It is silly to let a person who hates life and blames everyone else for everything bad that happens to them stay in the same space as one who seeks joy. I have a six month plan to wean him off my financial teet and for me too seek out my next journey. Here I come world! I am silly and vibrant and full of life and love! Can ya handle me!!!

    Love
    Good speed, God Speed in your simple quest to live in Love

    This Love is not defined by illicit companions,
    Stealing away who and how you are,
    As we are not limitation.....
    We are expansion into the Love.

    May the journey be one of protection from the lost
    Empowered by Your Speed To Grow out of that shell,
    That hell of servitude to an undeserving mate.

    This human thing, this built in expectation of deserving the best
    Is worthy of the journey
    When I value what is common and available,
    Seemingly hidden in a deeper understanding
    Of myself..... as the unlimited Self of this little world,

    And of Itself it is not, only, ever alone.
    It never feels alone.
    So far away from the world of words,
    Yet an erstwhile companion, a reminder of the experience.

    Not willing to be lost in the arc of another world turning
    Away from the darkness,

    The words, a declaration of independence
    Written by this Heart
    Listening to itself.....A comfort that cannot be described

    The world attempts to blame you for not fighting,
    Thru the triggers it has hidden in familiar places,
    Engaging that tilting windmill that even Quixote would refuse to fight.
    No worries, as it tilts and falls all on it's own.

    You'll be much more than okay...
    You'll Thrive.....


    I wrote this in response to your declaration,
    And know that somehow we all think that the silliest of things,
    Like declaring your human rights...
    Your right to Live in Love
    In Your Own Home,

    These things must be started, and stated
    And they have been,
    All related to those here who will answer
    This growing declaration
    That difficult and completely unnecessary experiences
    Are deserving enough to find their own space,
    Without a trace of You.

    As soon as I saw your post I ran to enforce your expressions, before you removed them. They are important. In the past I have removed some of mine also, thinking why would I share that....
    Then, finding value in the sense, the strong feeling of their value to others.... I posted them.

    And I don't share anymore of the things, hard core language, much more descriptive and challenging to those now running for office in the craft I'm leaving.

    It does no good to write without response, nor to limit the connection with those who have the same core Loves we have. The support we have for each other is the expression of our value of life itself.....

    I also wrote this post while I had just watched a reading by the author, C. Bukowski's Final Home Movie https://projectavalon.net/forum4/sho...=1#post1466146

    In the midst of apparitions in churches, aliens, comets and newly discovered old worlds Up At The Ranch and Beyond, all of which are an amazing compilation that Blue Green Grows for us to enjoy, I also found Dorothy Parker's writing....and I have deliberately not read the writings of many authors.

    In these I was instantly reminded of people I knew and how some of their inhumanity towards me and others stood out like the dull lives they live.

    Seeing your expressions of independence and right, I responded....leaving the sillyness for those who I talk to personally....and the short stories I've written with imaginative endings and silly premises...or so I think, but not expecting...

    Go where you know Love is, I tell myself.
    And I start here....

    Hym,
    I love, love, LOVE you! You get me! Yes I am odd, different, and nonconventional. I am called a f…ing lunatic on a daily basis. But I have an affinity to spread love and appreciation to those around me. I can make something out of nothing and I do it all the time. I can look at the ugliest things and see the beauty. But when I am not loved or appreciated I won’t waist my time. Two days ago My father turned 79. We had a wonderful birthday party for him to celebrate his life. Unfortunately he has dementia and I am not even sure how much he took in. But he was loved, accepted, cherished and celebrated. When I was taking my grandkids home they said, NeNe you need to move closer to us. We could create and craft every day. It would be so much fun. They put the wind under my wings. I have had two days of silent treatment.I am responsible and take care of everything! No more! I will value myself, Even if I have to stand alone. This silly human has a future!
