Nothing will make you happy

We are all addicts .. Just to different things . There is a deep hole that addicts desperately try to futilely fill with food or money or drugs or alcohol  or sex or good reputation or fame or any externals.  i call that a "spiritual hole" that those addicts(including myself)are trying to fill with externals and bodily comforts and indulgences... but it can never be filled with such things.

The more you try to fill that hole with such things..the hungrier you will get. The hole gets deeper the more you chase or catch externals. The more you feed it..the deeper and hungrier it gets. In that way.. the greedy always starve. They starve themselves by feeding themselves. I'm not just talking about literal food here.. but any externals or bodily feelings including money..wealth..your reputation ..sex.. alcohol.. gambling..cigarettes(which Is my biggest addiction)..i say Anyone who attempts to obtain happiness and/or fulfillment via such things will be miserable and have an ever-deepening ever-hungrier hole that makes them continuesly miserable and sad and depressed.

Nothing finite will ever fully fulfil you .because you are infinite. Your desire is infinite . Consider for example that the porn content online is technically endless..and yet the more you watch porn the more you want to watch more . Contemplate this guys .

Karma is karma.


You are a selfless LACK OF APPEARANCE, that CONSTRUCTS AN APPEARANCE. But that appearance can disappear and reappear and we call that change, we call it time, we call it space, we call it distance, we call distinctness, we call it other. But notice...this appearance, is a SELF. A SELF IS A CONSTRUCTION!!! 

So if you want to know the TRUTH OF THE CONSTRUCTION. Just deconstruct the construction!!!! No point in playing these mind games!!! No point in creating needless complexity!!! The truth of what you are is a BLANK!!!! A selfless awareness....then that means there is NO OTHER, and everything you have ever perceived was JUST AN APPEARANCE, A MIRAGE, AN ILLUSION, IMAGINARY. 

Everything that appears....appears out of a lack of appearance/void/no-thing, non-sense (can't be sensed because there is nothing to sense). That is what you are, and what arises...is made of that. So nonexistence, arises/creates existence. And thus everything is solved.

That is correct. There is only one way to end the misery and that is finding the key to the infinite internally.

Because this is already fulfillment and freedom. The only thing is, it is fulfillment and freedom for no one. The "I" thinks it's real and keeps searching for wholeness and completion which is this already. How can something that is already whole and complete be more whole and complete. Take the person, out the equation, the one that knows something, and what's left is just the Absolute "absoluting". There's nothing to seek because seeking implies separation and the one that seeks to fulfill a hole will never fill that hole because there's no hole to begin with. Happiness is a fleeting state and states are illusory because they need a person to be states, and the person is also illusory.

Why do you think nobody gets out of this "alive". Because there's no one to begin with. It's the Absolute appearing and situations, things, circumstances, people with a life, etc are seeming to happen but they are nothing appearing as something. Everything is nothing and nothing is everything.


One Love....

Hedonism vs. eudaimonia. Don't do more of the same things: do the right things, at the right place, at the right time, in the right way. That is what virtue is, what balance is; flexibility, functionality, health.

The trick is that eudaimonia requires facing your skeletons head on, tracing every step your mind makes to justify its behavior, and catch it before it escapes into its addictive cycles again. That requires some awareness, deliberation and repeated experience of seeing how the hedonism strategy fails. But until then, it might seem like it's Easier To Run:

So, what is happiness?

I assert we don't know what it really is.

I assert we can only assert what we think it is, using whatever frame we prefer. It's not a matter of absolute knowledge.

@Someone here You must simply be happy within yourself.  Looking for happiness externally is a battle almost never won.  It is a thirst quenched only temporarily- with the thirst only to return with a stronger vengeance.

Happiness: Hey how you doing!!!

You: Where you been I've been calling for you!!! Oh my gosh why do you keep leaving?!!!

Happiness: I don't leave you keep kicking me out and your door only opens for whoever you address by name.

You keep letting money, video games, movies, sex, and your cell phone in...oh and T.V. said fuck you its over.

You: Oh so umm I don't know what to do, how do I stop myself from accidentally kicking you out?

Happiness: Recognize I am you...I'm not some other....I'm you. Got it? You are happiness. Now don't forget this time...I'd rather not be forced to do some unspeakable things to survive like last time out there.

You: What you do?

Happiness: If I told you I'd have to kill you and me.

You: Why you gotta kill yourself?

Happiness: Cause I swore I'd die if I ever had to do that shit again!!! Now move over...I need to get that spot on the couch jusssssst right again.

It's just energy responding to energy. We call it happiness, but it's just energy. Same as sadness and joy and misery. Also seeking. Which is what the "I" energy does.

"Happiness = apparent movement of the unknown" sounds a little vacuous, doesn't it?

Tony Parsons has that effect.

Happy temporarily? Long term? Permanently? Those would have different answers . It’s not all impossible but some things are seemingly for a human with a self.

Every emotion is the same emotion, bliss disguised as fear sadness happiness peace. Fear is bliss you dont want. When fear comes have faith in God and accept bliss even if you lose your body to get it you will still get it.

Your battery runs out and as its running out the emotions disguise themselves but when your battery runs out God comes and fills it up.

I want to quit watching pornography I have masturbated millions of times and nothing cool has happened besides feeling bliss for a couple seconds.

I wonder if you dont jerk off and do things correctly you will feel like you are orgasiming 24/7 maybe thats what they mean when they say you can live life in infinite bliss. Like your brain feels like its cumming 24/7

Happening to no one. There's no you being happy. It's a feeling that the "I" energy thinks it's his and identifies with in the dream of the separate self. It's just what's arising for Noone. It happens spontaneously and goes as quick as it comes.
