You should remember at all times that this is your ONE and ONLY life. You don't get anymore shots left.

If you're born short, there won't be a time where you're born tall. If you're an ethnic minority there won't be a time where you're born white. If you're poor now, there won't be a time where you're born rich. If you're young now there won't be another time where you'll be young again. If you're born in a poor country, there won't be a time where you're born in a rich country. Stop letting your mind play tricks on you. This is all you got. If you're born with all these disadvantages this is your only fucking shot. No more.

If you spend your time caring only what others think of you; If you burn all your time orbiting women who don't give you the time of day; If you squander all your time lazing around, not lifting, oversleeping and not approaching, then you will die having done ONLY that. You will never get a fucking chance to rewind. This isn't a game where you get second lives. You will never be this young again.

If you spend your life focused on your disadvantages like being poor, short, a minority, being dumb, having a disability, being shy, having a fucked up childhood or any other obstacle then reality check: This is your only fucking chance to get whatever you want. If you don't take it, you will rest in the cold ground all the same.

This is why we were born mortal. Because we are mortal, we are free. Because we got one shot, we make this the best fucking shot we can give. Fuck the limitations. You fucking chase your goals.

“This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time”

Delete your Facebook, end the excessive masturbation, stop shopping for new clothes, and stop

texting girls all fucking day on your phone. You should be hunting wild game or digging huge

trenches to bury your enemies in, you shouldn’t be spending your time chasing skirt or looking at your

friends’ facebook pictures. Stop stalking half­ass HB7s, stop playing world of warcraft, and stop

watching porn for theatrical purposes.

Everyone’s always complaining about how life gets harder as you grow up. That’s because these people

SPEND their time. As they get older, they run out of more and more time. Successful people INVEST

their time. Life should get easier as you get older, not harder. Why do some people have “everything”

while others have nothing? Because spending vs investing time is a habit and there’s no gray area – 95%

of our population have a habit of SPENDING time and only 5% INVEST their time; hence you have a

huge concentration of talent, fortune, and success in a very small portion of our population.

“In life, you will either live your own dreams, or someone­else’s dream.” Choose, or someone else will

make the decision for you.

“Warning: If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this

useless fine print is another second of your life. Don’t you have other things to do? Is your

life so empty that you honestly can’t think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are

you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all that claim it? Do

you read everything you’re supposed to read? Do you think every thing you’re supposed to

think? Buy what you’re told to want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the

opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight.

Prove you’re alive. If you don’t claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have

been warned”

4 upvotesMarcus11383 years ago

Just note that while it's important to invest time into things like academics, that doesn't give you an excuse to not be social. You don't have to get wasted every night and stay up until 4am at the clubs, but you do have to understand the benefits of networking and social influence.

I've come to learn that if it increases your "skill stack" (skills available that you can use at some point to better your life/achieve goals), improves you in real ways, or gives you ideas you can implement in real life, then it's not a waste.

I quit reading things that are purely for intertainment - that's time I burned up without really gaining anything.

I read (typically, sometimes paperbacks too) Kindle self-improvement books by succesful men or similar. Along with things here and at other helpful websites.

A void that can only be satisfied by the pursuit of Truth

What is the [definition or referent of the term] Truth?

consistent upright behavior

Where is the line / how do you tell the difference between upright behavior which will have a good result and upright behavior which comes from an attachment to right and good?

Edit: clarification

1 upvotesStoicCrane3 years ago

What is the [definition or referent of the term] Truth?

The Absolute Reality and Source of the Highest Consciousness from wence everything in existence stems from. The problem facing Humanity is that instead of abiding by the framework set by the Original Source of Consciousness we were deceived into believing that we can govern and control ourselves independent of IT'S influence.

Where is the line / how do you tell the difference between upright behavior which will have a good result and upright behavior which comes from an attachment to right and good?

The underlying spirit in which the behaviors were committed. If one is under the influence of Truth upright behaviors will stem. If one is under the influence of deception chaos in mind, emotion, and deed will stem forth. It's either one or the other. There's no middle ground between vice and Virtue.

1 upvotesendogenic3 years ago

The absolute Reality and Source of the Highest Consciousness from wence everything in existence stems from.

Okay, so, what exists in reality?

What can you see from the level of the Consciousness you refer to?

instead of abiding by the framework set

What framework do you mean? I'm looking for the exactly correct teaching itself.

we were deceived into believing that we can govern and control ourselves independent of IT'S influence.

Do you believe in evolution?

If one is under the influence of Truth upright behaviors will stem. If one is under the influence of deception chaos in mind, emotion, and deed will stem forth.

Okay, interesting. But how do you confirm what is completely true? Can you confirm the degree of precision with which you can make confirmations about what exists in the world of the Truth?

1 upvotesStoicCrane3 years ago

Okay, so, what exists in reality? What can you see from the level of the Consciousness you refer to?

Reality is the underlying essence of all existence. By aligning with the Highest Consciousness one can see that all of Humanity is in a state of mental bondage by way of deception. By taking in an adequate knowledge of The Truth one can be liberated from the influence of false perception and moral degradation. Experiencing life as we were meant to as opposed to the destructive, disjointed, lawless chaos we're bearing witness to today.

Do you believe in evolution?

Ancient alchemists attempted to transmute gold from lead and failed miserably. A species can't suddenly become another species.

Overtime individual species may develop adaptations in relation to certain environmental factors like light pigmentation in darker climates and dark pigmentation in bright ones but a duck doesn't suddenly become a jaguar over time. A duck is a duck.

Okay, interesting. But how do you confirm what is completely true? Can you confirm the degree of precision with which you can make confirmations about what exists in the world of the Truth?

By the manifestation of IT'S presence. Truth is self evident and absolute. Eveything that varies in degree in reference to the Truth stems from falsehood and delusion.

1 upvotesendogenic3 years ago

Reality is the underlying essence of all existence. By aligning with the Highest Consciousness one can see that all of Humanity is in a state of mental bondage by way of deception.

So do you mean to say that in reality the Consciousness determines the operations of everything in the world? For example Christians sometimes use the term, "the author of a life".

A species can't suddenly become another species.

A duck is a duck.

Yes, I agree. The reason is that they have their own origins of life. In order to change into another species they have to abandon their existing self and change problems. Would you agree with that?

Truth is self evident and absolute. Eveything that varies in degree in reference to the Truth stems from falsehood and delusion.

That may be completely true, but it doesn't prove you know what the Truth is or how much of what you can see is in Truth. Don't you think it's important for your truthfulness to know?

1 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 years ago

What you may be missing is that those small adaptations get magnified over immense amounts of time. Descent with modification from common ancestors is reality.

Good shit I like to live by the " If I died today what would I think of my life" perspective . Sure i've done some things but for all those things I've never tried, experienced, explored, or had that I truly want one day I need to start finding ways to achieve and experience those things . When I die I'd like to say I lived a life and enjoyed experiences that made me proud . The less regrets I have the better I sleep each night when met with the prospect that Today could be my last day and you get to revisit that idea and create more goals and decide on more experiences to enjoy the next day .

Life is a gift as long as your heart is beating you owe yourself to enjoy that gift .

This is a bit more poignant for me. I was blessed with ridiculous top one percent genetic advantages. This by itself did little for me except create a dissonance with how I felt about myself. I was raised bp by divorcee mother of four. Breaking the deeply inset binds on normal male behavior is royally difficult. People in my life kept telling me I was special. My life was telling me I was shit.

I have a different perspective now. I am special. I am one of a kind, similar to a snowflake. Yet I am simply a man like any other. It is on me to recognize where I have the individual advantage over other men. I am recognizing these differences as important now. Kind of leverage.

upvotesSinuhee3 years ago

I've always considered that there are three possibilities for existence:

We die and that's it forever - most likely We die and there's a religious heaven - least likely in my opinion We die and consciousness continues in some form like out of body experiences/near-death experiences etc.

Even if we do survive death and there is a heaven or alternate realm, you will never be you as you are now, with your quirks, talents, likes and wants. When your heart stops, all that is you ends no matter what happens after.

So why not spend the 80 or so years you have to be fucking awesome and pursue what you want to be and what you want to achieve with every fibre of your being. There is NO excuse for complacency. There is no room for concession. Especially not after you've become aware of the red. Do it and do it now.

great perspective first of all, it came to me, the idea of this post sort of just last night. and as a christian what am I to look forward to?

and reading post how christianity has become so bluepill even within the church, preaching basically bend over backwords for your wife.

not the point, but I began to think about how some people get seriously involved in the church and that's great if you want to help people but some people revolve theirwhole life around going sunday and wenesday and people they've met in church and so on.

Just for what? so they can have a "garunteed" ticket to heaven?

I don't go to church all the time or considor myslef a perfect christian, but I want to live this live to the greatest, I hope I can do good for people in the future but I won't base my life around it for some afterlife ticket or risk my life preaching in some country where christianity is illegal like a dumbass, I value my life alot.

if someone wants to do that then great, maybe you die and think "I know I am surely going to heaven spreading the word of god"

but I value my human life more, I have my beliefs and I'm not going to live my life waiting for the day to "go to the better place"

I hope all christians think about that sentence
