    Yes! However, I'd say the importance lies in the wisdom gained in dealing with such times, not in the difficulties or the loss per se. There is no glory in suffering or loneliness.

    Oh I agree. It can be taken wrong. When Mother Teresa said 'suffering can be holy' Christopher Hitchens twisted it to mean she wanted people to suffer. But we are intelligent people here?

    Mortal coil....interesting, I always thought that meant the earth...but it refers to the suffering we have during life, the trials and tribulations. Many consider this a normal part of existence on the planet to get used to what is normal.

    I do find the altitude of ones attitude to have a huge pact on perspectives.

    How about this!
    What do you believe of the hereafter? I believe..for there will be absolutely nothing!..
    Yes..and there I WILL go.

    One must remember (nothing) means ‘no thing’ or ‘not a thing’..
    Nothing means and purpose, a reason of being born...like humans, water, trees, animals..etc...they all have meaning and all are based from an noThing.
    Do not get fooled by which they had taught us about the word ‘NoThing’.

    A thing would be like a phone, tv, ball, pen, shoes..etc, its something that is not alive..and that something is to be named ‘everything of all things’, Except for nothing..lol, I know it gets quite confusing..but when you see what I see, it all makes perfect sense.

    Next question is..
    Would you define yourself a human being a (thing)?
    Or Not a Thing(NoThing)?

    I am the most wises person alive for I know only one thing...
    Absolutely [NoThing], and therefore I know what everything is..lol.

    For I am nothing..and therefore Some claim to know everything, but in the end everything will pass and nothing will last forever.

    With nothing, everything cannot exist or everything cannot exist without it being from nothing..

    It is similar with numbers..
    The number 1 cannot exist without the zero(0)..or without number 0..number 1(no.one) will not count.

    Everything has meaning with purpose, but if you purposely without meaning..you are not meant to be.

    Nobody knows everything .. no, I don't mean you (noone/nobody)

    If you are nothing, then I assume you don't feel pain like the rest of us do :rolleyes:

    Let me make this clear..that mail was not directed for you..it was for ‘need2believe’ in (something) for (himself)..wasn’t it the reason by this thread? and those sayings were by for him to take for making a change in a different view looking into life..
    This works for me..maybe for him and clearly was not for you(since you already have a belief),..if by you were taken by what it claimed..don’t go jumping into conclusions.
    It was not for you.

    Anyhow!..what was your partake in this thread from other than your quoting “do you live in a light house?”..do you seriously think that is good advice? Or do you think this is a joke?

    And out of respect for your question..NO I don’t feel pain like you do..I dare you to ask me why?

    It doesn't matter .. I have no intention of disrespect to anybody.

    Dare me as much as you like .. I see no point in asking.
    It is a personal thing. Perhaps you are on morphine or something [joke] ;)

    I think @Need2believe is a she?

    We put thirty spokes together and call it a wheel, But it is on the space where there is nothing that the usefulness of the wheel depends. We turn clay to make vessel, But it is on the space where there is nothing that the usefulness of the vessel depends.
