Most of us believe we live compassionately. Most of us fail. I know I do.
OMG... do I fail too.
As a Buddhist, cultivating compassion is a primary goal...one that I still fall quite short of attaining.
Political forums don't help.
Have you seen how many stupid people there are in here?
Sadly, I have to agree.
I fail too
Everyone always thinks they are right and anyone who does not agree is, as you say, "stupid", though I prefer the wording of "having a differing opinion" myself lol
It is by acknowledging my faults and ignorant attitudes, that I am forced to make efforts to consider my actions and words.
Doing this conflicts with my central mantra of laziness.
In addition and in any event, I'm afraid my ego will not let me make any such acknowledgement or admission.
gosh darnit lol
The older I get the more compassionate I am but I still fail.
Age is the only thing I have going for me.
It seems to compel me to be more compassionate despite my arrogant selfishness.
I don't envy the young.
I'd hate to have to learn these lessons all over again.
**** compassion If you haven't tried there is nothing to fail at
Tell me about it. I would never want to go through that again.Much happier being older and wiser.
I haven't failed because it was never a goal.
When was this?
This is just another thread pushing Communist ideals. Be compassionate on your own time and dime buddy.
When has anybody advocated anything but that?
I would think taking personal responsibility would make you all warm and fuzzy.
But you seem to see the world through red-colored glasses.
Ah, the objectivists, Darwinian to a fault.
Never play poker with them, they cheat and drink all the beer. Better to rob them immediately and throw them out on the front lawn, so the rest can play a decent game.
Oh look! Another drive-by asinine comment.
Again - I'll ask you this. Do you have any desire whatsoever to engage in a conversation on these forums or do you plan to continue posting little one-line ignorant comments and not bother actually discussing anything substantial?
Onto the topic of compassion, I can honestly say that I'm feeling a little bit of that right now.
I'm a selfish xenophobe working too hard to provide for my family and ignoring the rest of the world.
Clearly, Communism is yet another subject you know absolutely nothing about.
This is an interesting point, but isn't compassion something that can be expressed both locally and globally? Can't you be compassionate to your family, your friends, and your community? Or do you think modern life is a choice between making it or being compassionate?
Yeah capitalism would be all compassionate and junk, but what's in it for them?
As for failing to live compassionately, it's one thing to have compassion, it's an entirely different thing to actually do something with it. Some problems are too big for one person, but usually there are others out there who feel the same and together they can make a difference. <- Does that sound communist? What if I told you that they put it to a vote... now it's democratic... strange how that get's flipped around doesn't it?
WTF is your problem exactly? Who was even talking about money?
Hey now, you should be compassionate to those of limited means, be they economic or intellect.
a few ex girlfriends would tell me just how many items on that check list I missed
