    I just realized, i dont understand this world.

    There is so many things in this world i do not understand why others do :oops: equally there are so many things i wonder why people do not do.....
    The more time i think about it, the more i realize i dont understand this physical way of living.
    It kind of scare me a bit, being 43 years old and feeling completely lost when i look around me :(.
    Maybe this is how a newborn baby see the world? Very confusing.......

    I do not blame others for my misunderstandings in life :)
    But i have so many questions that if asked i will look completely like a fool or i will insult people because what i see as normal to me, is very unnatural to them.
    What they see as normal to them is very unnatural to me.

    Honestly i feel more comfortable totally alone, then in the big world.

    ( dont worry, i am not going totally kookoo, just realized a few things that feels strange)

    To me, the beginning of wisdom is realizing that you just don't know.

    Take the subject of Philosophy for example. People study it to try to find truth, but if they think too deeply about it, it's like looking Medusa in the face.

    You are one of the most altruistic people I have ever met online.:)
    You don't have to be afraid of asking questions or of making observations.
    You have the duty and the right to do so.
    That is what knowledge is all about.

    Socrates felt a fish out of water 24/7...but he was the wisest man who have ever lived (imho:p)

    Remember your freedom of thought , your freedom of choice is the most valuable thing you have.

    I once played a video game that I interpreted like this....

    A cast of characters with great faith in the gods decided to seek out a sort of reveal-all of knowledge. They elected for one character to go up to the podium and gain all knowledge. Unexpectedly, once that character learned about everything including the origins of life and the universe, he went mad, and had to be stopped by the other characters with no great ending for him as he wanted to wipe out the human race.

    What later happened in the game is the characters decided to be heroes with the hopes that their gods would eventually take over for them, by restoring peace and humanity to their world in the meantime. The gods never came, so the characters just ended up being mortal saviors who did save the world, but still had to rely on faith.

    One of the big jokes is the Western cultural idea of Objective Rational Knowledge and Truth. In effect it is a belief system and you don't have to understand the world as such. You only have to understand how it works for you. There is a difference and you can't solve the former, but you can solve the latter.

    Amanaki..... Hi... :)

    I often get the feeling that you are not happy, not excited, not positive... about life and living. All these negative ideas seem to surge around you like swimming in a tideway. That's just my perception.

    I was a bit like that, constantly wondering what everybody else was thinking and doing, and wondering what they were thinking about me.

    I was told to go and do something, anything, that would just make me smile, fly a kite maybe, see a good film, float a model boat ........

    .........Amanaki, I feel sure that any aware God would be delighted if you would just have one day, any day, being happy. ...... And then the next.. and then the next.....

    Other people's ideas and thoughts can blooming just leave you alone for a holiday of happiness. A holiday is a Holy Day.

    Today I'm going to the shops with my wife. I will see if we can get a takeaway McDonalds and take it to the sea front to eat. We'll go home and play with the little hounds. We'll just be happy. To Hell with what the world thinks about any of that. :p

    What happens when someone ( me) does not even understand how the world work for me? Yes i can do my thing, have my spiritual belief, being with other people in a day, but the big question for me is, what is it all good for?

    Maybe i am at a point in my life where what i Search for isn't there anymore :confused: did i find it, or did i get lost :confused: what does other people has to do with my own seach for answers in life? Do i use the resource wrong?

    Hi @oldbadger

    I started this thread because i am not happy with my life :) so your thought was spot on.
    My problem is that fore more then 25 years i been there for everyone else, my parents got sick, i was there for them, my brother dominated me for 3 years after our mom died, so i did everything for him ( i cut contact 2017)
    My ex girlfriend become sick after two years of our relationship so i again stepped in to take care of her, it lead to our brake up in Christmas 2019, still good friend.
    But all this lead to, i do not know who I am, i dont find the person Amanaki anymore.

    Honestly, Islam opened my eyes to what i was doing was good deeds toward others, but i spend all my energy to be there for others. So when someone tell me, you can go on vacation, be alone for sometime. That is when i get bad consiouesness because if i have gone on vacation, i am not there for others ( i do know its the wrong way to think)

    I've talked hypotheticals in this thread but I wanted to share something a bit more personal...

    Before I do, I wanted to say, I wasn't trying to create a narrative in my posts that being more knowledgable is a bad thing. If the message I was sending was anything, it's that sometimes to be careful of what you wish for.

    So I was trusting in my Hindu gods and I felt I was becoming more enlightened. It was great at first but I soon realized it was making me into a massive empath and someone who followed collectivism. It was a bit too much for me and when I asked my Hindu gods about it, the answer I seemed to receive was that this is just one path and that it wasn't a required path.

    I soon realized I couldn't do it. Being enlightened through my higher self and being so selfless I care about the whole world was a bit too much for me.

    So my current conclusion is that it's a burden I myself wouldn't be able to bear.

    My later choices of where to take my personal spiritual path are more debatable, but I'm not going to get into that as I want to leave the rest of my personal spiritual path as just that, mostly personal. :)

    What is it all good for? Here is my take: I leave that to God. I only try to figure how it works for me as human among other humans. The big answer as to All Good I leave to God. I go for good enough as I can do it. That is different.

    It sounds like a compulsive disorder of sorts. Could it be that some people from the past often judge and/or blame you and made you feel bad about yourself, as though you were never good enough no matter how hard you tried?

    I have my scars too. I wasn't so much a bully victim, but In my adolescence I had a hard time keeping up with society's expectations. I often got judged for that and began to hate myself for that. It made me feel like I was "broken". Like my birth was a mistake or something...

    I'm doing a lot better now but it has definitely changed me.
