Facepalm

I didn't think it was possible for anybody to be that self-unaware. You really do need help.
Thanks for the advice but I prefer to live in unmedicated, awake, reality. Any coward can medicate their problems away, or so they think.

The cosmic membranes of wisdom swing noisily at the flap of the dingbat of history.
Even though we find a defective branch or leaf upon this tree of humanity or an imperfect blossom, it, nevertheless, belongs to this tree and not to another. Therefore, it is our duty to protect and cultivate this tree until it reached perfection. If we examine its fruit and find it imperfect, we must strive to make it perfect. There are souls in the human world who are ignorant; we must make them knowing. Some growing upon the tree are weak and ailing; we must assist them toward health and recovery. If they are as infants in development, we must minister to them until they attain maturity. We should never detest and shun them as objectionable and unworthy. We must treat them with honor, respect and kindness; for God has created them... In brief, all humanity must be looked upon with love, kindness and respect; for what we behold in them are none other than the signs and traces of God Himself. All are evidences of God...

Abdu’l-Baha (Promulgation of Universal Peace)

RE: ATTN: Theists - Four Questions
“Love the creatures for the sake of God and not for themselves. You will never become angry or impatient if you love them for the sake of God. Humanity is not perfect. There are imperfections in every human being, and you will always become unhappy if you look toward the people themselves. But if you look toward God, you will love them and be kind to them, for the world of God is the world of perfection and complete mercy. Therefore, do not look at the shortcomings of anybody; see with the sight of forgiveness. The imperfect eye beholds imperfections. The eye that covers faults looks toward the Creator of souls. He created them, trains and provides for them, endows them with capacity and life, sight and hearing; therefore, they are the signs of His grandeur. You must love and be kind to everybody, care for the poor, protect the weak, heal the sick, teach and educate the ignorant.”

‘Abdu’l-Bahá - (The Promulgation of Universal Peace)

Figures since people think the simple things I say are deepities they might like these.

Peace

By coming here and sharing your delusions you are attempting to convert people.

You are disputing others' viewpoints and trying to convince them of your own. Drop the bullshit word games.

Lack of pride? Such as the pride or arrogance of claiming to have a personal understanding of god? Of a being capable of creating the entire universe? This supreme being is your little buddy?

That's not pride and arrogance?

And any judgemental fuck can opine about mental health problems they do not understand apparently.

Is this the same god that became angry with humanity and drowned the entire world (including innocent babies and plants and animals)?

And promises to one day burn most everyone in fire? For eternity?

Same god right?

I said you need help, not medication. That you can't understand the difference is yet another sign that you need help.

The key is "knowing" which is not the same as "believing" or, in your case, "imagining".

We've had this conversation. You think I need psychological help, the extent of which is talking to someone and taking mind altering substances.

Imagined...really? Proof?

Didn't think so. Hypocrite.
