What do you do with an emotion that causes more pain than wars?

Love does not cause pain at all, let alone more than wars. It is attachment that causes the pain. Love is brilliant. Nuff said.

^^I like this guy.

Ramo I like you.

You know that right? You didn’t just read it in a book, you see it in your world?

I think he sees it in his world.

I like you Ramo

@Stephen, yes I read it in a book, numerous books, numerous times. I watched many people preach it in videos, on youtube and elsewhere. Like so many things the concept is easily understood, experiencing it requires much more than rationally grasping it (or in a way, it requires much less. And yes, I’m being purposely vague)

It is actually love that made me realize that attachment is the only thing that hurts. I lost love, at least I thought I did for some time. I came to realize that I had made myself believe that I had owned a person. As soon as I uncovered this illusion, as soon as she had made me realize that she was still the same, and I was still the same, love was still the same, nothing was lost. I still miss love sometimes, I’m not saying I’m immune to attachment, I’m not. But I’ve managed to see part of the truth about it, and it’s comforting.

I read a few posts on your blog, I can relate to much of what you’ve written. The destructiveness of some of it however, scares me a bit. I’m not sure if that is the kind of language I like the world to be described in, although I feel like it points to the truth.

@Aaron, haha you just turned all this into a language game. Al right, so if love is all there is, we don’t have anything to talk about any more which is why we should just shut up about it altogether, which we of course won’t because silence beats the purpose of this place. So now love is al there is and we’re talking without saying anything.

ps. I thought consciousness was all there is XD

Does consciousness even exist?

Looks like an abstract concept to me with little to no sign of existence in realty.

Maybe I’m unrealistic, but I kinda thought love = consciousness = infinity = god = all there is

no santa
