I'm just curious, what do you expect, or want out of your life here on earth. Are you hoping to change the world? Are you hoping to live a humble existence, achieving the goals that you have set for yourself, no matter what they may entail?

Or... are you like myself, trying to figure out why it is that I am here, and what my purpose is here?

The point I am trying to make of this thread, is that I am young and confused. Hard times bring out the best and worst of yourself. I have come to realize that different people have entirely different world views and goals for their existence. I just want to know if anyone else is in the same position as I am.

just stop thinking about it and go get shwasted.
92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you are part of the 8% who still listen to real music, copy and paste this

I think a lot.

I think, first of all, that my biggest strong point is also my biggest weak point: I believe in the ability of the human nature to be more than it currently is. I believe we all have it in us to be better than we are. Smarter, more compassionate, and more capable.

With that in mind, my life is pretty much dedicated to getting the people I interact with the start achieving their potential. I don't want to save the world, because the world we live in isn't worth saving. I want to change the world. How? Intelligence, compassion, and evolution. I firmly believe that, if humans are to make it another 11,000 years, we MUST learn to embrace elightened self-interest. Within that, I believe we MUST understand that suffering anywhere is suffering everywhere, and that if something happens on your watch, you're just as responsible for it as whomever the perpetrator is. This is especially true for Americans. Our government is elected by us, and they do everything they do in our names. So, when a child in some hell-hole country that nobody's ever heard of dies, it doesn't matter if I actively killed him, because he died on my watch, from conditions I knew about, and with the supervised complacency of my government.

So, I guess my answer would be to live a quiet, humble life, achieving the goals I've set out for myself: which is to change the world in a deep and meaningful way.
I know that I will die. Everyone "knows" this; few people ever truly realize it. Accept it, get on with it. We're all on-call, and everything we do to put it off is a stall tactic.
I know that I only get one chance, so I have to make this one count. Maybe I'm never rich or famous. I'm definitely going to be remembered well by those who remember me at all if I can just help it (and ultimately, I can). Mrs. Johnson from the apartment upstairs who needs help with her groceries and the neighborhood kids I play basketball with and the VM I volunteer at will not forget me, even if I die right now. That's what matters.

I'm very spiritual, and there's one Bible verse I live by more than any other: "He has showed you, O man, what is good, and what has the LORD asked of thee but to act lustly, love mercy, and walk in humble adoration with the LORD your God."

I believe that you can love God without loving people for a little while, but that you can't continue to love God without understanding God, and since God loves people, the only way to understand God is to love people. If you love God, love people, love mercy, and love justice, you're probably doing it right. At least, that's how I see it.

dude, man, your signature. has anyone ever told you what a real life HERO you are for fighting the good fight and not "moving on" to rap? it's that kind of bullheadedness that really defines a person. and to shut the door, to just say "no" to an entire GENRE of music...wow man, you are just unbelievable. and a minority, no less! i never knew such a meager percentage of teenagers like yourself were so unwilling to listen to music they weren't used to. in fact, i'd like to know exactly where you got those statistics, so i can tell all my friends about this COOL guy i saw on the internet. so if you'd be so kind as to just direct me to a website or provide any kind of support for this data which i'm sure is based on CAREFULLY conducted research and wasn't completely made up. thanks!

I would like to change the world, or at least the people of the world, for the better. Most people don't realise that we are all one nation, one race, one society, not 300+ different, divided nations. That's what I would like to accomplish, ultimately. Whether I tell it to people, or sing it to people, just as long as someone gets it and someone understands.

Don't encourage me. This is all going into that suicide cult.

"There are no real barriers, my friends. We're all the universe. We aren't a part of the universe, we are the universe. Now.. Lets take our lives, for when we die.. our atoms will become something else, and in that sense we are immortal. Now.. It is time."

To get over myself and live alone. I want to learn to appreciate the beauty of everything.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Make music which will likely never be heard by anyone, get a shitty job, get a shitty flat, save money perhaps selling drugs on the side, try as many weird and wonderful drugs as possible, travel to many different places, do plenty of snowboarding, study the occult and perhaps practice a little, write book addressing certain aspects of spirituality as well as ethnobotony and mind-expanding drug use as opposed to recreational use.

When above is carried out, suicide.

Yes to every question. And I've realised I'm never getting the answers I want, at least not before I die, or even acheive my life goals, so I've kinda given up. I have no direction and no motivation. It's shit.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.
