    In the end, does it even matter?

    Most people on here seem to be athiest, and only the true slaves are "true believers."

    So in the end, does it matter if you were a good person, or if you had a positive impact on the world. Or does it not?

    If no, then do you still have a moral obligation to be a good person?

    so if you kill 20 people, and don't feel bad about it, it makes it right?


    feelings is just your interpretation of your world. Often, how you feel does not coincide with what it truly is.

    Most people walk through life in a trance, rarely pausing to think about the real reasons behind their actions. They ignore the uncomfortable truths of their existence and react to world on emotional autopilot. Instead of conceiving a crystal clear vision of how to be the person that they want to be, they look to others to determine it for them.

    Life is full of pressures – pressures to act in a certain way, pressures to appear like a certain type of person, pressures to adopt the tastes and values of other people.

    There is always a temptation to be drawn in by these pressures and place more value on what other people think of you than on what you think of yourself. But ultimately, when you give away your power like that you sell yourself out.

    You are an individual. Your value starts from there.

    And if you kill 20 people, I will say you are a $h!tty person

    But I can feel good, if I try and help the kids left motherless after you kill them

    And that's selfish?

    1. Life means suffering.

    To live means to suffer, because the human nature is not perfect and neither is the world we live in. During our lifetime, we inevitably have to endure physical suffering such as pain, sickness, injury, tiredness, old age, and eventually death; and we have to endure psychological suffering like sadness, fear, frustration, disappointment, and depression. Although there are different degrees of suffering and there are also positive experiences in life that we perceive as the opposite of suffering, such as ease, comfort and happiness, life in its totality is imperfect and incomplete, because our world is subject to impermanence. This means we are never able to keep permanently what we strive for, and just as happy moments pass by, we ourselves and our loved ones will pass away one day, too.

    2. The origin of suffering is attachment.

    The origin of suffering is attachment to transient things and the ignorance thereof. Transient things do not only include the physical objects that surround us, but also ideas, and -in a greater sense- all objects of our perception. Ignorance is the lack of understanding of how our mind is attached to impermanent things. The reasons for suffering are desire, passion, ardour, pursue of wealth and prestige, striving for fame and popularity, or in short: craving and clinging. Because the objects of our attachment are transient, their loss is inevitable, thus suffering will necessarily follow. Objects of attachment also include the idea of a "self" which is a delusion, because there is no abiding self. What we call "self" is just an imagined entity, and we are merely a part of the ceaseless becoming of the universe.
