Thankmindfullness

Thankmindfullness.  I am grateful for my love.  Grateful for my family. Grateful for my friends. I am grateful for this journey and how I carry my pack. Grateful I get to share it. There ain't no heaven and hell but what we create here, humbly i walk with the universe. I'll keep listening, ever tuning my ears to hear the story. 


So thank you universe! I am so very very lucky.

Excuse my complete lack of understanding of the kind of appreciation you have here. But isn't it that we were thrown into this universe? Isn't it that we don't have a chance to end being in it by will? I mean there's a severe penalty for suicide, isn't there?

I don't know what happens after death. Hamlet said it best,

"For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
Th’ oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law's delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns

That patient merit of th’ unworthy takes,

When he himself might his quietus make

With a bare bodkin?"

Answer: "But that the dread of something after death,

The undiscovered country from whose bourn

No traveler returns, puzzles the will

And makes us rather bear those ills we have

Than fly to others that we know not of?" (Sorry, quick wiki reference this morning. I prefer original trans).

Anyway, I do know that suffering on earth stems mostly from us and our choices. We're talking privileged folks here. I don't think about death. I do know I can control my suffering on earth. And its not all nihilistic responses either.
