One day, the trees were just thinking casually about getting involved with autumn
A week later, Autumn arrived on steroids. I’ve been living in New England for 30 years and I think this is the wildest autumn color I’ve ever seen.
Can we really know everything?
No. It’s hard enough to fully know one thing much less everything. It’s a very big universe. No one knows everything and most people don’t seem to know much of anything.
Where were people before they were born?
Honestly? We weren’t. Anywhere.
I need to point out the concept of life before and/or after death is not common to every religion, much less every individual. Judaism — the parent religion to both Christianity and Islam — has nothing to say about it. It neither accepts or denies it.
It does not propose heaven, reincarnation, hell, or anything else. It has no suggestions. Whatever suits you, you are free to believe it. Judaism has more rules and laws than any other religion and yet in this area, it has no rules or laws. Different sects may have their own particular beliefs in the matter, but Judaism leaves this question in your hands.
Does the Law of Attraction exist in which positive thinking brings about good changes. Some say it’s made them wealthy. Others say it improves their health or their outlook on life.
For as many people who believe thinking positive thoughts makes their lives better there are homeless or deathly ill people who give it their best try and all they got was nothing.
Positive thoughts are all well and good as long as they are your own thoughts. No false flags or phony smiles. A positive attitude is great help to you get through a rainy vacation, but for most of us plebeians, real life requires work, persistence, and a sense of humor which maybe you want to call a positive attitude.
Do we love ourselves more in the virtual world and less in the real world? If so, why? If nay, why?
I don’t know. I think I’m more peaceful in the virtual world, but that’s because virtually-speaking, I don’t have to make virtual dinner every day. Virtually-speaking, the shower is perpetually clean. It’s easy to love yourself when you don’t have to do the work.
Are you happy?
Yes. I’d be happier if we had a lot more money and at least one more dog, but over all? Yes.
