Then why did we develop emotions…I’m sitting here listening to music that reminds me of my childhood and all I can think of is how sad I’m going to be when I am on my deathbed. I think of all the disappointment and regret that is partnered with living. If we are all just vibrations on a universal chord then why does it have to be so emotional? Living (and dying) would be much easier without evolving so much. In fact, the human race has such a small chance of surviving whats the point of anything?
“Life isn’t a question to be answered, it is a mystery to be explored.”
Why do you choose to know what you find diffculty in understanding? Why not cultivate what you believe you have a grasp on already? Assist others in a creative manner. Make bank and live how you see fit brother.
While i can understand your angst, you have to realize that emotions are a part of the experience. The sadness and disappointment is needed for contrast. without it the very happiest moments of your life wouldn’t be happy. Even if we are doomed, that doesn’t mean that the life you could have in the ridiculously short time spent on earth can’t be wondrous and beautiful.
With sadness comes happiness. With happiness comes sadness. The depression makes the inevitable joy much deeper. Emotions is all there is. Waves is all there is. You choose which frequency to resonate on. Accept all and your life will flow like the waves you are.
We’re vibrating multi-dimensionally. We have a physical body, and senses to perceive the physical world. You also are a spiritual form, with emotions and thoughts to perceive that higher dimension. When you meditate, you’re raising your conscious’ vibrations to the point that you’re aware beyond your normal physical and mental senses. Try meditating to gain some peace of mind, and always practice giving and receiving love. Simply being thankful for a handful of things each day will help awaken you to the simple joys and moments that remind you it’s all worth while.
Death is the great equalizer, the ultimate forgiveness of your life’s achievements and sins. I don’t think anyone’s going to be judged, but rather cleansed. It’s not terrifying or painful or depressing to die. I’ve come to appreciate pain as it’s my only reference to enjoy the happiness I can find. But when you die, you’re leaving the physical dimension, dropping those physical senses and with it all your emotionally painful and joyful memories. How is that not bad? Well I don’t think that’s the end of the story, I imagine your soul being relieved to finally be freed from its fleshy vessel.
@cbrock, Music is a collection of vibrations. Music has the ability to evoke a very specific emotion. By specific emotion, I’m saying that a single song IS a single emotion/mood/vibration/ambience package. Its all just vibrations.
Ever heard of Fourier Series? Its something we learn in engineering that tells us from the most scientific perspective: everything in the world is analogous to a vibration.
The emotions we experience in our lives are a vibrational component of the signal that we’re made of. We’ve been conditioned to believe that emotions are something simple that can be separated into anger, happiness and sadness but its not cut and dry like that. There is nothing discrete about emotion. Every emotion experienced is a unique part of our waveform that would never have happened had we not emanated it into the universe.
You sound so sad.
Cheer the fuck up.
Instead of vibrating sadness, vibrate higher in happiness.
It does not matter why we are here, how we got here, why we feel, why we think, the fact is we are here, alive, breathing, living, a fucking mess yes, but whatever. We may be vibrations on the frequency of the universe, but imagine how beautiful that must sound, to whoever the fuck is listening to it. So, make your vibrations sound like a concerto.
