How to find peace?
« on: July 10, 2013, 12:42:06 pm »
We will find complete peace only when we express unconditional love, because to love is the true nature of our spirit. When we choose selfishness over love, we go against God and our true nature.  This causes turmoil in our spirit. Furthermore when we choose selfishness we hurt ourselves and others by the anxiety, envy, greed, and hate it produces. Selfishness also leads people to violate the natural order established by God. Such violations include contraception,   in-vitro fertilizations, abortion (which is the cruelest form of violence), divorce, fornication, adultery, and perverted and sterile sexual acts.  Such violations result in breakdown of the moral fabric of the society and of family life; resulting in much suffering, especially to little children.
   Unconditional love is the spirit God which is expressed in selflessness, sacrifice and service. To fall in love is to embrace this spirit; and trust in God enables us to embrace this spirit.  Because love is selfless, it frees us of selfishness; which in turn frees us from everything that selfishness enslaves us with. When we embrace love we will love our enemies by our acts of sacrifice and prayers for them, will not speak or think evil about others, offer the other cheek when slapped on one, give to everyone that asks, do not ask back what we lend, give and expect nothing in return (Luke 6:27-30), consider our opportunity to sever others as our greatest gift (from God), live to love and see the presence of God in every human being.  We can embrace this love, if we let the spirit of God which enabled him (in the person of Jesus) to sacrifice his own life those who hurt and betrayed him, touch our heart.

I express unconditional love for my parents. Why aren't I completely at peace?

As for the rest, TL;DR.

There's no way that's pot. Well.. there's no way that's just pot.

And leave your pants.

Just kidding, you can stay as long as you don't break the forum rules. But don't be suprised if people don't suddenly convert with just some copy-pasted word-salad.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

I found peace by placing a small ad in the Classifieds.
I am an old man, and I've seen many problems, most of which never happened.

Let me guess, you also love your guns, and so long as your government is Republican, you love them, too.

Question: What about people who find peace through religions other than Christianity? Buddhists, for example: from what I can tell, they have just as much inner peace as Christians, if not more so. And what about people who find peace and unconditional love without any religion at all?

Does their peace and love not count?

Whatever happened to finding peace through simple things, like meditation, music, or masturbation?
Her3tik, you have groupies.

There are a number of ways, though my favourite is simply to take them by surprise. They're just walking down the street, minding their own business when suddenly, WHACK! Penis to the face.
