Choose Compassion by MissLunaRose Choose Compassion by MissLunaRose
What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?
—Rousseau

"Kindness don't have no boundaries."
—Aibileen, The Help

To me, compassion is everything: it is reason, it is why, it is how, it is always, it is yesterday and today and tomorrow. It is behind all actions, before all things, entwined in every aspect of life. How do I write about the philosophy that drives everything for me? I call myself a writer, but the more I think about kindness, the more my words slip away.

I want every choice of mine to be motivated by compassion. Let me balance a love of myself with a love of others, and devote my life to their smiles. Let me shine like a flame wherever I go, illuminating people's lives and leaving a lingering brightness that builds them up. Let me inspire others to do the same.

May this stamp be an inspiring affirmation to you. Place it on your page as a reminder if you wish. Choose the person you want to be.

I love you all :heart:

you Know Miss Luna, I really like your point of view towards the kindness, specially in a world like this when everyone are just super aggresive towards everything, specially when we have different opinions, I think the best thing to do is not trying to change point of views, is more respecting the others as human beings despite we have totally polar oposite ways of though :)

So you're an impulse-driven ghost roaming the world because of your evil deeds in your past life?

At this point, I would believe it.

Oh, dear! :lol: In that case, let's hope that whatever you did in your past life wasn't too bad; else you might be condemned for all eternity or something.

Meh, I'm not saying I believe that; I'm just saying I would. I'm saying that my life is pretty much like a nightmare, written by Buddhists. And as such the only negative fate I seem to be able to consistently avoid, against all odds, is death... which I have indeed avoided against all odds on repeat occasions... which really does just prolong my suffering.


Remember, the point of Buddhism is not to vilify 'past life deeds', but to vilify the idea that life is worthwhile in spite of suffering. Hence, Buddhists tell people that the more they choose to feel that life is good, the worse of a 'future life' they will be reincarnated into.

'Life is good' as self-falsifying prophecy, in other words.

The preta is essentially the worst weapon in their prophetic arsenal, and the only one they can really level against people who don't ever think of life as inherently bad. Keep in mind, Buddhists are the people for whom the ultimate hell is eternal life. Not eternal life somewhere particularly bad, or anything. Just, eternal life, at all. In any way. That's their idea of 'hell'.


And if you disagree, and say something like, "actually, I think that life is pretty inherently okay, unless you're sick and starving or something"... then that's the ghost story they tell you, is that "if you choose to feel that way in this life, then you will be reincarnated as a 'hungry ghost' in your next... condemned to sickness, starvation, and inherent, inexplicable pain, and yet physically unable to die..."


...which pretty damn-well describes my real, actual life, ghost-stories aside.

Wow, I had no idea that Buddhists believed that! You're really knowledgeable about Buddhism. Thank you for educating me on that.

I'm really sorry to hear that your life has been like that. :tighthug: That sounds awful. I hope that things get better for you. Let me know if there's anything I can do.

It's going to be so hard to find a fine place for this stamp.
And the amount of hashtags that you've placed here. :happycry: I just... I don't know if there's even a word to describe how happy I feel to read them all. It's not easy to fit everything in there, I understand, but you've done your best. :aww: And that matters, yes?

I like to browse tags sometimes, so I gave this stamp a lot of tags in the hopes that lots of people would notice it. Whether they read the description or not, I figured that seeing it would be a nice reminder to them. :)
