My view of life, death, afterlife, psychedelics etc.

think about it... it continues the cycle of suffering (life) and if we all stopped, we would get into nirvana (death)
Paradoxes? Where?

hmm i think it is a bit stupid, (because it is so simple if you view it like thatSmile yet it is part of the four noble truths...all life is suffering etc.
i mean it is really simple in a way ... you can only suffer, if you are alive... if you're dead you can't suffer,.. however it doesn't logically imply (in my opinion) that all life is suffering...

but how come you say nirvana is death? don't quite understand that... well of course if you'd be dead, you'd be free from suffering...
but well..... maybe you are not free from suffering after dying, as many people think on this planet, maybe if you want you can go on suffering... maybe you are a soul that exists beyond physicality and therefore you could (maybe) still have sentiments and emotions and therefore have the ability to suffer.


hmm i don't know... but apparently (it is said) the buddha reached the state of nirvana before dying, so hmmm but well that might be because he is so awesome and it doesn't mean that death isn't nirvana ... but well death could be nirvana, if you think that you would be reincarnated anyways if you hadn't reached nirvana while living then well yeah....

it's interesting... however i hope what i wrote is in some way valuable at least... Big Grin

conclusion: we should all kill ourselves or what do you exactly mean by "reincarnation as child-rearing" ?? Big Grin so that the children don't cling too much mentally to life so that they don't fear death, etc.. ??

peace :weedman:
i'm so disgusted by the world of today.. Sad

Individual beings don't reincarnate, existence reincarnates. It's constantly reorganizing itself through reproduction and death. You are a temporary nerve ending of existence. The temporary suffering of individual beings is insignificant in the grander scheme of things. Realizing this, one will no longer identify with individual pain and pleasure, and thus become liberated from samsara. Once liberated, one embraces life in all its facets, including death.

Is that your opinion or what is taught by some Indian esoterics ?

Would it be playing a role in your decision whether you agree or disagree with it? I honestly like the decription which CM dropped.

i would agree with CM, except im not sure about the individual reincarnation, in my opininion its both individual and existence, a part, and the sum of the whole in whichever metaphor you want to use Big Grin

from what iver read about death and afterlife, usually you have to get passed the astral, like if you die and theres shit and or negative thing/emotinos from your previous life, you have to find a way to drop it or you dont move on, hence ghost/intelligent hauntings, then once you let go you move to a higher realm and so on a forth of whatever's next.

some call it summerland, the after life as a one style place with thislte huts and stuff, and the celts, or i think irish believed in this other one where in that afterlife instead of young to old, you go to old then young.

but quite a few of practitioners of esoterics have reached "nirvana" or enlightenment without having to die, jus the term is more metiphorical then literal the meaning of completely being abel to leg go of conciousness upon other thigns of the individual in order to reach such a state.
just my opinion/belief
"as long as there has been one god there has been killing in his name!" and u ask y im pagan.

"from what iver read about death and afterlife"

Can you please tell us where we can get books written by dead people ? Or are you talking about comercial books written by confused esoterics for money ?

I believe that probably some ideas can be "reincarnated" through our dna. Like that we, as modern people, still love to sit around burning fire, although we do not profit from it in any way. I think this is transferred to us by our genes, and these unconscious archaic ideas and feelings might sometimes give us the feeling that we have been living in another place before. Which we, as individuals, haven't. If you see humanity as a whole, then yes, we have been living in other times and places.
