How we react is Key.

No reaction?


Is that the same as, How do you stop a thought?

Is that not still a reaction?

Re: X Marks the Spot
I think that is beautiful.

And exactly my point. When the anger does flare one is presented a choice.

A choice to react out of Anger, or to react out of Compassion.

Compassion in this regard being the very forgiveness mentioned above...


The meaning behind, Forgive them Father, they know not what they do.


Brief's statements today hit on another thread I commented on a few days ago. I had been wondering to myself the ways society deals with people like this.

And if any culturally implemented 'treatment' really works to alter behavior.

And if not, what to do...
 Quoting: Seer777


Alter, yes.

Repair? No.

...

Only an opiate could do both seamlessly.

That reminds me of SOMA from A Brave New World.

That book disturbed me, in several ways.


Is there a way for inherent morality to Stand by its own Merit?

Or will, one bad apple spoil the whole bunch remain?

I am not sure how that pertains to my question...

IOW, is a reward/punishment system the proper way to correct behavior?

Or is there another way?


One can not just 'forget', as much as one tries.

One CAN disregard.

One can forgive.


Forget?

How?

Distraction seems the only way, and even that only temporary.


Therein, perhaps forgiveness is the medium we move past transgression.

And in that is ALL forgiven?

And if so, what is the result of forgiving all transgression?

I have decided to take leave of this place.

I have found an alternative of expressionism.

I think will miss dion the most, and El, as well as all you other ones.

Mostly dion, because he always remembers to laugh,
El, because he always remebers to be positionless.

Back to the drawing board.

Another echo elswhere. Ive given enough, and nothing at all. From this point to further confir, woud be addiction to philanthropy.

For example...

When one is cold do we not first and foremost seek warmth?

When found, do we not plunge ourselves forward toward said...?

Moving and dancing with the heat, whether it be through the form of fire or manufactured warmth...


Hot water.

We adjust to find just the right temperature so as we are not burned, but yet are comforted under said.

I remember not how that story ended.

Was she eaten by the bears or does she successfully flee?

I'll just address this bit for now.... am running on psychological fumes at the moment... yawn

Anyhow, I feel that a reward/punishment system, imposed externally, is not only the 'wrong path', but indeed it is sure to fail; the more the doctrine is forced, the more catastrophic the failure.

Allowing a 'self-appointed' purpose, on the other hand, I believe cannot help but succeed.... after all, we are the best judges of our own skills and merits; assuming our self-esteem has not been destroyed by contemporary society.
