How is it anymore evil than dying of anything else? Sure, you suffer more, but it's all the same in the end, no matter how you go.

It seems more evil than instantly dying because it takes much longer and it's tougher on the person who has it. Dying really quickly doesn't seem so evil. Everyone has to die at some point, it's part of being alive. We all face it.

I used to wish the world was like this when I was a kid.

It may be just a question of linguistics, but to me evil is an act of malevolence carried out by a person. If someone dies of cancer or dies of AIDS that is sad / unfortunate / tragic / various other adjectives, but it isn't evil. However, if someone deliberately exposes someone to a carcinogen that causes cancer or knowingly gives someone HIV then I'd class that as evil.

I don't know what evil means, to be honest. Or even if Santa made the world.

Wow..that's the way i walk..in real life..like i'm floating on a cloud..

At least for me..

you must be psychic...
as this is precisely..
a great illustration of my reality...

In my opinion..if there is any evil..humans create it as an abstract construct...

And yes..i do know full well now..that any emotion..and even positive energy..is possible to control..

with total mindful awareness..

And the phrase mindful awareness..means little..if a person does not have the ability to control their emotions..and
free flowing energy...

How to do it...How to do it..

Work IT baby...
The same thing all other animals do...

They keep moving in the challenge of the moment..

There is no time or need to worry about an abstract concept like Satan or Evil...or HELL..

But as a metaphor...i have been as evil as they come..i have visited Satan..

and yes..
i have visited the REAL HUMAN HELL TOO..

BUT ..I live in heaven almost all the time..now..
if i can continue to ignore my wife's nagging...

There is always a challenge..

But that is what can create the best bliss of all in
the longest of runs...

LIFE..

AND YAH..THIS MIGHT NOT MEAN ANYTHING TO YOU nowKNOW..AT 40..
BUT who knowsnOW at 50 or 53...

as it meant little to me...
at
52...

Life is a practice..

i would have never been able to float on land like a butterfly..

if i did not become a butterfly..

and continue to practice floating..as such..

Hawks.. fly beautifully...

But take away the practice of flying...

and they simply
fall..
they simply fall..

Humans are no
different.

PRACTICE..PRActice...Practice..pra.......

Well..i seriously did experience the worst documented pain known to mankind..type two atypical trigeminal neuralgia..for a full 60 months..

I thought about calling it evil..but i knew it was nature..

So who was i gonna get mad at..GOD..the Universe..nah...

it would have done no good either way...

So i never cursed GOD..for my 'gift' of pain..

But it taught me more..than three degrees and college taught me...

Or even over two decades working with the general public...

It taught me to control my mind...

The greatest gift of all...

As with mind and body...

It starts tHere..with spirit..and soul...

and emotion 2...

and keeps growing..

if one can simply

find a way...

And nah..i cannot ever see..
where complex thinking methods..of finding bliss..

ever work in our basic animal human nature...
that does aim toward .. bliss..but loses the way...
through abstract concepts of others..to create this human hell...

that
can be heaven..in the NOW2.
