Anything goes (almost).

What is Man's True Objective in Life?

Postby freefromsamsara » Sat Sep 01, 2012 1:12 pm

For the past few thousand years, Man has always strived to be a master of the 3D material dimension.

But instead of being a master of just the lowest dimension in existence, why don't Man learn to be a master of ALL DIMENSIONS?!

As above, so below as they say.

When will Man realize that whatever outcome or results they desire in the 3D material dimension are all influenced by actions and decisions made by higher beings in the higher dimensional planes?

Only when one is not free! When one is already free, one is free to choose evil or virtue, being aware of the consequences of both, thus knowing the virtue is better than evil, knowledge of this is the intellect. The intellect is what will be guiding oneself next. In other words, the objective is based on intellect, not ignorance.

:broke: I'm failing miserably :toilet: :jumping:
Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.
~Lama Surya Das~

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.
~Lama Thubten Yeshe~

One whose mind is freed does not argue with anyone, he does not dispute with anyone. He makes use of the conventional terms of the world without clinging to them
~The Buddha~

Exactly, am sure the response would apply to the great majority of human beings on this planet called earth and those on the other planes of existence.
Very wise words indeed Jyoti.

To experience pleasantness and avoid experiencing unpleasantness! Even though doing so is completely impossible...and completely doomed to failure!
One should not kill any living being, nor cause it to be killed, nor should one incite any other to kill. Do never injure any being, whether strong or weak, in this entire universe!
