No trap. It's kind of like Iraq where you fight on and on until no one wins. I don't think the best way to get people to think about God and the immortality of their consciousness is to engage them in verbal sparring. I used to, but over the last six months I've come to see how pointless that is. It's like if you want to spread the Hinduistic acosmic monism, it's probably better to make a movie like The Matrix than to argue the philosophy with people who disagree.

RE: I Think I'd Like to Change
Just let him work towards a change he's seeing in front of him. I understand people having questions about the sincerity, but you don't nee to voice them. How this turns out will be evident in his future actions. Just don't respond if you're simply voicing an expectance of failure. If he is trying to expand his own understanding and become someone he'll like more let him. We should not be here to stop people on their search for meaning and importance. Let him searh and give him suggestions of where to look. It's better to help people, then to hinder them to the point that you go against their own growth. Yes you can grow into the wrong ideas, but as long as you continue to grow that can always change yet again.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

RE: I Think I'd Like to Change
uhhmm... I think my words might have been misinterpreted, I didn't asked if Egor is giving up in a sarcastic or ironic way, actually I have nothing against him as he never said anything offensive to me, I've read some things and I know he can be irritating but that's fine with me in a forum like this. But in any case I wouldn't like him to give up, I'd like him to change in a positive way, but not to just let things go because he thinks it's pointless, frustration isn't the best motivation to change

I don't think it's that. I think he's realizing (like I told him a long time ago) that you are a more effective communicator if you're not all WWEish on people all the time.

Godammit Egor! Don't matter what your threads are about, they always get so much attention! Lol

Good man. Always looking to better yourself is a stand up way to live.

So many cats, so few good recipes.
