Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it's called the present. ~the turtle from Kung Fu Panda

Even if the morrow is barren of promises, nothing shall forestall my return. To become the dew that quenches the land, to spare the sands, the seas, the skies. I offer thee this silent sacrifice.

If that's what you want in life, then yes, it is a wise thing. But this comic was trying to say that you should live in the moment, and not spend time planning for a future that may never come true.

To live in the now requires absolutly no thought which means that absolutly no judgement about a situation is possible. You can still use your mind/brain as a tool though.

Well, living in the now as he do is somewhat a state of consciousness which resembles your consciousness on magic mushrooms (aside from the hallucinations) since shrooms lower the level of thought going on in your brain.

There are a lot of kids in the comments below who haven't left high school and probably still live with their parents.

I can tell, because it's extremely obvious none of them have ever blinked once, and realized it's three years later, you've had barely any net-gain of money, your work is unappreciated at best and actively criticized by supervisors at worst no matter how hard you try or how earnest you are simply because people remember the bad, and not the good, and you're still single, still poor, still in a job you'd intended to use as a stepping stone, and still going to sleep cold and alone in a crappy apartment so you can go to work tomorrow to earn the money to pay for food so you have the energy to go to work again the next day. Your friends, too few. Your coworkers, annoying. Your life, a wreck. Your view looking forwards, no different than it was when you started. Your free time? Not nearly enough to accomplish anything meaningful. Every uplifting movie and book lied to you, every happily ever after is ********* , and they're so endemic to modern culture because it's a vision of what we want, but will never get, and cannot have.

Three years. Gone. Just poof. Time doesn't fly. Time is a jet engine on wheels doing lines of cocaine off your ass, which it just ran the hell over. And for how many people is the three years twenty? Fifty?

Millions of people live and die in the hole society threw them in after college or high school. And society charges them ******* rent for the hole.

I know this world is a terrible place, because I've come to sympathize less and less with heroes, and more and more with the villains. The madmen, monsters, the tyrants and deluded dreamers.

What value does life have if so many get nothing out of it? What monsters are we that this system is our creation, and ours alone? Can a man not be forgiven for looking up out of his hole and seeing the stars, and screaming as loud as he can, just once, so the world doesn't forget he's there?
User avatar #56 to #48 - pioneermhm (06/25/2013) [-]
You do know that these people could turn their life around. If that was me, I would rethink my choices. Maybe get into adult education, get a better job, better life. We shouldn't base our life on a job. I'm pretty sure things could be changed if someone tries hard enough.
#59 to #56 - lordraine ONLINE (06/25/2013) [-]
And you've already bought into the lie, because you believe that "trying harder" equates to "being successful" and "having happiness."

Punching a concrete wall harder just breaks your hand more.

There are three kinds of people who are successful in life.

The ones that were naturally talented and able to channel that gift into something that was profitable, and use that profit to make themselves happier and enrich their lives.

The people who were born into privilege, and had doors opened for them as courtesy that most could only dream of having slammed in their faces.

The people who got lucky.

Every book written that tells you how to be successful is a ******* lie, because there should only be one page in it, and it should say "When all else fails, convince a million suckers to buy a ****** book filled with office buzzwords and motivational language. You'll make a killing, I promise."
#91 to #59 - trollolololgabe (06/25/2013) [-]
Have you ever considered that you're really just immature and pessimistic? I have family members like you who went to amazing colleges like University of Michigan and never accomplished anything and my parents tell me everyday why my aunts and uncles failed and they didn't. It was because my parents weren't unmotivated, self-sorry asses who believed they were deprived of something in their lives. The world, and society doesn't owe you ANYTHING; so stop blaming it for the misfortune in your life. The unsuccessful people who spend their entire lives working a job they hate aren't victims, they aren't oppressed, they aren't "slaves to the system".
"All mankind is divided into three groups: those that are immovable, those that are movable and those that move." -- Benjamin Franklin.
Don't be a close minded unmotivated bitch who gets angry at high school students because they have hope and you don't.
Don't be a following pussy that gets mentally bullied by your co-workers and bosses, and "the system". ; who believes that murders and dictators are "normal" people because they have a desire to be remembered.
The Fact is you are whining like the kids during occupy wall street (the very same kids you renounced in your previous post); sounding like the world owes you something.
Unless you have a birth defect or grew up in an area of instability governmentally then you have no excuse to be whining on the internet about how "deep of a hole you've dug yourself into". Work around the system, it is true that a man cannot punch through a concrete wall. To this I say build a battering ram and be a "moving person". Everyone can affect the world in a positive way no matter how small, and you should find happiness there.
#101 to #91 - lordraine ONLINE (06/25/2013) [-]
And people like you are the reason we'll never be able to change the system unless we use violence. People that are more comfortable believing the happy lie will lash out and defend the status quo, uplifting the stories of the few who were lucky as reason for the tens of thousands of dispossessed to blame themselves for their situations, and not the world around them. As though hard work, and not luck, is what is actually responsible for success, or that anyone can actually get ahead in the world without being grandfathered in by friends in higher places.

For every story you can tell of someone who made it good, I can tell you a hundred about an IHOP manager who hates himself because he never got the chance to live his dreams, or a girl that couldn't stop being a waitress until she was fifty five.

Look at all the assumptions you made in your post. The personal attacks. The pure rage at my words.

You'd defend the illusion to your dying breath, and justify it all the way to the depths of hell with arguments like "what right do you have to say this" or "people who fail are never victims, they just need to try harder."

There are only two responses a reasonable person can have to the modern world.

The first is to recognize and accept that they are not talented, not unusually skilled, and the only hope they have of true success in life is to keep trying until something works, not because hard work is actually effective (it is not), but because they are playing the lottery of life, and hoping to get lucky at some point.

The second is to realize that even if you get yours, millions will never get theirs, and that the only reasonable and unselfish thing to do that takes everyone into account is to start a revolution and change the system.

You can die in your hole, you can try and get yours, or you can grab a shovel and start digging people out.

Or be an ostrich, like yourself, and pretend that nothing is wrong, I suppose.
#104 to #101 - trollolololgabe (06/25/2013) [-]
again you speak as if the world owes you something then you justify violence while you condem personal attacks?  Dude your morals are just all in the wrong places and I'm guessing the events that have taken place in your life to change your point of view so drastically must be out of the ordinary.  The world isn't perfect and theres many people who deserve better.  But you aren't going to change that through some type of revolution. "There will always be kings, even if we don't call them that"-- Napoleon Bonaparte.  The fact is the only way we can change the world and help the people around us is by working hard at what we love and if you can't do that then you do whatever you can do to find the best possible situation.  I had a babysitter from Turkey (she's socialist) who wanted to become a musician but couldn't because she knew she couldn't make enough money.  Now she works for the Turkish representatives in the U.N. and is very happy to do so.  I think for every truly unhappy iHop manager you found I could find a hundred people that believe they have affected the world positively or lived a good life.

The world owes no one anything. What you fail to understand, presumably because you are still a child, is that modern society gives you less than nothing. You do not start out in the neutral. You start out in the negative, and continue in that direction. The lessons and stories you were told as a child were nothing but sweet lies. You're doing nothing but repeating the rhetoric of Hollywood movies and motivational posters. Don't think they've lied? There is no girl waiting for you, and there is no prince on a horse either.

Almost everything you will learn while school is completely useless and will not help you, unless you enroll in an internship or apprenticeship, and we live in a world that would rather teach children who have no future in an area mandatory advanced courses in it that they must score well on to move on, than how to do something that is actually useful that they will use, like how to file taxes, start a business, or get through insurance paperwork.

The school system is completely pointless. It requires general education all the way through, and thus favors not people who actually have talent, but people who are average at everything, and the entire test taking system is pointless, because all any of them really test for is for skill at memorizing facts, which is no indication of intelligence or skill at all.

That's the part you don't understand, presumably because you are either still in school, or have just recently gotten out. You have no idea that this is even a problem, because you've lived a sheltered life. You haven't yet realized that you or your parents spent thousand and thousands of dollars on an education that is, in essence, valuable only because not having means no one but a McDonalds manager will look twice at you. Your college education doesn't actually teach you anything useful, again unless you're an intern or apprentice. It's just a stamp on your record that means employers don't automatically fail you from the word 'Go.'

Ever watched The Pursuit of Happyness? It's based on a real story. He lived a ****** life, had a son who he couldn't afford and a divorced wife. He turned everything upside down. Take it from me. I had ancestors who had ****** lives and they had managed to change it. Now, I'm one of the lucky ones in a good university because of them.

Damn. That was deep man seriously. Makes me wonder why am I here.

I wanna.stay optimistic but it seems no matter what you do or how you look at it it amounts to nothing in the end. The only thing I can gather is to live only for me and give my life meaning regardless of what others think. ***** deep

I totally agree with you, but this is an entirely different matter. What we've got here is a man who's never had to work a single day of his life who goes around preaching his "don't let your life be dominated by money and working" crap while he obviously knows nothing about normal people's everyday struggles. I'm probably overreacting, but this pisses me off greatly.

I see your point, but you might want to look into what the Dalai Lama (Tenzin Gyatso) has been through and worked for, he's not exactly had it easy...

Think of the dalai lama as such, with a quote from Morpheus in The Matrix. 'The Oracle tells you what you need to know, but not what you want to know'.

If you are looking for spiritual guidance, more often than not, you would seek it from a person who is happy with his own life, even if they aren't familiar with the situation.

That's why we seize the moment try to freeze it and own it, squeeze it and
hold it
Cause we consider these minutes golden
And maybe they'll admit it when we're gone
Just let our spirits live on, through our lyrics that you hear in our
songs and we can...


Ok not exact wording but am I the only one that noticed that line in the description was from an Eminem song?

I tried in school so I get into a good university to get a job.
I paid for university and pried my way through it so I could get a job and make money.
I make money to pay for university, but furthermore be happy and survive.
In those happy moments I know I am spending money and I know it cannot last.
In the end, I die.
All was vanity.

You are wrong. There is a meaning to life. The meaning to life is what each individual man, woman, and child chooses it to be. Our lives have different purposes from one stage to the next, but we always have some sort of goal. Even if that goal, that meaning, that purpose, is simply to find happiness. If you have no meaning to your life, that is your choice, but I sure as **** choose to have a meaning to my life. Otherwise, what is the point of living it?

finally something that describes the way I think. I'm 19 and I like to have plenty of free time to do actual productive things that i ENJOY. people call me a slacker because i don't really have a steady job and didn't really focus on college too much. My parents make me feel like a huge mooch even though I pay for my own gas and l haven't asked them for money in literally two years. I'm obsessed with exercise so that is where most of my time goes. I spend most of my time bicycling, working out and playing sports because I care way more about being healthy than i care about money. Most people I know just see it as "oh he doesn't have any of those achievements that the world expects him to have" and just treat me like a slacker. What about my ******* goals? sorry this is so long.

**** this stupid ass hippy **** . If the man didn't work then that kid wouldn't have a ball or a ******* house. If the man didn't spend his money on his medical bills he would be dead.
