What they teach us is what we overcome them with

They wrapped up their heart. put it in asafe place, closed up and far away. they saved their heart for other occasions. true, they do wear it as a necklace when guests visit, but the moment the guests leave, back into the safe it goes.

without a heart its easier for them, for the new people. the heart is heavy, and why carry it around everywhere is they dont use it? so you put it away. vaccuum-sealed. lock it up. its better off there.
and really, look how pretty out heart it when its not in its place.

whoa, what's that from?
it's weird
pretty cool

why don't they use it?

*Miriam* said...

Joi, are you still here?
Where did u go?

michael said...

Believe in god,
believe in self,
believe in good.

*Miriam* said...

The only problem is, many times those three thiings MAJORLY conflict each other. Believe in god, you say, but you also say believe in good, but if u believe in god and what god says then u don't encessarily do what is GOOD, u do what you're TOLD. and believe in self? but u said believe in god, u can't really fully believe in both. it's either u or god, it's either good according to ur standards, or just listening to someone else, which means giving up some of the goodness u would want for yourself.

sorry about all the typos

ok so if i understood the post correctly then i totally agree, the things you learn from someone is the way u r gonna defeat them. there was once this general called general patton, in world war two and part of the reason he deafeated the other army was because he read the book that the other general wrote, about military tacticts...so basically he learned all the tactics that the other general had to offer and was able to defeat the other army!!

but mayb i got your whole post wrong...

*Miriam* said...

No yeah, u undrstood it right.

And they teach us to defeat the world, but they are part of the world.

And they teach us how to overcome obsticles, but they are the obsticles.

They want us to be strong, they want us to be courageous, but then they lose their own power.

They raise us high for one purpose, but once you have the strength, it can be used in any way. So in a way, they cause the problems. They helped us defeat them.
The beat themselves.

They gave us the power they could have saved for themselves.

2 questions-
who is they??? you talk about an obstable, a problem, almost an enemey. who are you fighting??

and second- did you think maybe its on purpose? maybe they are trying to raise a better next generation? they teach us everything they can, uncluding how to be better than them...

michael said...

just take it easy,
the world will be going better,
no one tried to hurt others,
they just wanna survive,
fact we all "know" there is no god,
cause we cann't see it, talk to it,
so basically we mostly belive in that there is no god,
fact ,
what is believe in god is that,
believe in what you think is good,
fact that is much more like good itself, something you believe,
we are human,
we build this world,
we have common sense,
we are animals too,
we have to survive,
that is all,
believe is a good thing.

and i think love is a powerful weapon,
even the world is going to be destroyed,
only love leaves,
love of the nature,
love of life,
love of good.

michael said...

sorry for the words to use too,
i think my english still needs improvement,
maybe it should be "remains",
not "leaves".

*Miriam* said...

When people want to survive
It's not all they want.
Because if that's all we wanted
We would keep ourselves sheltered in a metal box.
We want not only to survive, but to win.

Love is the most powerful thing.
In some ways, it's what helps us win.
Sometimes, it's what fails us.
It gets in the way, for good or for bad.
It's always here.
Always.

And maybe we don't want to "hurt" people but we do want to prove something, and that means either raising ourselves higher or putting everyone else down.

We fight for recognition.

*Miriam* said...

by believing in god ppl are actually believing in good, they want good but since they cant find it on their own, they look for a god to give them guidelines.

Or they just feel obligated, and if they don't believe in Him they'll feel guilty.

Wait, if all we want to do is survive-then why do we even want to survive, there's a reason to survival. You may not know why you want to survive yet, but if you were to just survive there would be no point, i twould be boring, you have to have a reason.

the only reason someone would want to survive would be because he has something he wants to do...

michael said...

we gotta survive,
there is an old chinese proverb,
translated into english is:
"to live in danger, to die in ease"
what ever don't need to be that nervouse,
but it is in some way reasonable.
to fight,
to win,
to get what you want.

michael said...

this is human nature.

Gabi said...

I didnt mean that you dont have 2 survive, but you have to have a reason to survive, what good is it to survive with no reason?

*Miriam* said...

I don't believe in the whole thing of a "mishlachat", that we're here to fulfill god's will.
I wouldn't say it's bullshit becuz that's very extreme, but I do think it's an explanation of ppl's being here for people who really do not know why they're here.

We're here by chance. You're parents decided to have you. Once we're here, though, we need a purpose.

We need to make ourselves happy and make the world a better place just out of a courtesy to future generations.
We don't really OWE anything to the world, but we all want to be remembered and we all want to make things better for everyone.
So that's what we're doing here.

Evidentally, I'm not completely satisfied with this answer, bc I think there must be something more that we should be doing, but I don't know what it is yet. YET.

michael said...

finally, i thought, you are right,
something what we learn is what we overcome,
its not only to fight to win,
but also to get along with friends,
with more people, like you or not,
you like or not,
be getting along with people is more than fight against to win,
to get along well is good for people's healthy and life.
