So, I will stick with the idea that love is a choice. It gives me hope that one day, I will choose to love someone capable of loving me back.
Я бы продала одну из квартир, чтобы были деньги на осуществление плана. Потом я бы закатила громкую вечеринку с шампанским рекой, куда бы пригласила всех родственников и друзей, а на следующий день уехала бы из Москвы. Сначала в Мексику, чтобы посмотреть на пирамиды. Потом в Камбоджу, чтобы увидеть Ангкор-Ватт. И, наконец, в Париж. В столице Франции я бы сняла что-то вроде квартиры-чердака на Монмартре. Поставила бы себе большое кресло, а вокруг целые горы книг. Каждый день, я бы ела в брассери, дышала воздухом этого города и гуляла по его улицам. А вечерами читала бы русскую классическую литературу, вроде Пушкина и Толстого. И так, пока бы не пришел конец.
Would tell me to study very, very much, that not for one minutecome to think it was silly.
Would tell me that in the future more valuable friendships. Some friendships need to be watered more frequently than others.
Would tell me to learn from new to be less impulsive, reckless.
Speak so that I respect more the feelings of others. Love is no joke, even if it's love child (perhaps this is the largest and mostsincere.).
Would tell me to start to develop patience as a child in the future I would need much.
Would tell me to think long before you do anything, because someerrors are not forgivable.
Would tell me to learn to be strong since then, as in the future, Iwould pick up a lot and need that strength.
Speak that no matter what people say, promise. Ultimately, each onewill look only for yourself and you will be left if it is expecting something from someone.
Speak you have two friends who will never abandon you, God and the mirror.
And last but not least, talk to enjoy the childhood because it is awonderful moment that will be missed forever. Take advantage ofmy grandparents because in the future, will only have memories ofhow good they were and how these moments were priceless.
This is hardly a freewill vs fate question. I mean please,. If we're talking Determinism vs Free Will at least come up with a better question.
like "If all our actions are determined by society and our subjective perception, how can crimes be punished?"
or "Can Combatibilism solve the problem of Free Will vs Determinism?"
or "Does Free Will only exist in the fact that we percieve our actions to be determined by choice?"
You get the picture. Just... Never ask a philosophy student about this :D I was about to start banging on about Ayer!
Anyway, this is obviously a concept based question. What they're really asking about is the responder's concept of love.
PS: Azula's face is appropriate.
I used to believe in destiny. I used to believe that one true person would show up on my doorstep one day. And one day, someone did just that. She even had pie. But it was all a lie. It was one of my biggest mistakes. Now... I'm not sure if I believe in love at all.
It's a choice for rational, clear-headed people. For some it's not a choice because they are swept away by a flood of hormones, pheromones and unfulfilled psychological needs to the point that they can't judge the risks and benefits of falling in love with someone before they do. The sense of destiny when you find someone you're compatible with is an illusion, and you would feel it upon meeting anyone you share compatibility with, anywhere in the world. The world is full of people you could potentially be romatically compatible with, but you only meet a small sample of those people in your own little corner of the world, so you feel erroneously that the agreeable person you happen to meet is the One, the Only One. This may seem pessimistic, but I think it is actually liberating. Even if you lose one person you care for, you haven't burned your bridges with everyone you could potentially feel the same way about. Those feelings are in you, not intrinsic to the other person.
Ugh. I actually think the idea of a perfect "other half" (sometimes referred to by the phrase "soul mate", but meaning other half) is actually deeply damaging to everyone involved.
We don't necessarily get to choose who our heart goes for. You could think someone should meet all your criteria and be perfect, but feel nothing moving in your heart in that person's presence or when you think about them. And then, you could know with absolute certainty that someone else would be a Very Very Bad Idea in terms of dating, and your heart chases after them anyways. I firmly do NOT believe that means you are "destined to be together" or have past karma that needs to be resolved by dating (even if it would seem like dating again). I also firmly believe that having been in an intimate relationship in a past life DOES NOT mean it would be a good idea at all in this one. Sometimes there really are good reasons why a relationship ended, and it may be best to accept that.
I think that as a pan-affectionate lesbian who is considered conventionally attractive by many straight men, I got hit with this from several different angles. My heart can still chase men, even though I have never been sexually attracted to a man - my emotion needs and sexual needs are not intertwined so strongly that I only get attractions one way with people I could also be compatible with the other way. I've been sexually attracted to women I would never actually get into a regular relationship with or trust emotionally, and I've fallen in love with men, and even dated quite a few, and never felt any sexual attraction to them whatsoever, even if I did feel very strong trust and love for them.
And, I've had "sensitive new age guys" try to approach me with One of the World's Worst Pickup Lines more than once: "Hey, I think you and I were together in a past life", and after I am vastly unimpressed "But you're my soul mate! I need you." Oh yeah, that's attractive. I can tell up front you don't give a flying $#!^ about my needs and desires, or have any interest in considering consequences of past mistakes. Ooh, how enticing is that?
The last guy who kept insisting on that one pissed me off enough that I came up with a mean snarky response:
"Ok, let's say we were together in a past life. Are you good at math? How many past lives have I had? [note: these guys always insist I'm an "old soul" too] I'm polyamorous by nature; how many lovers have I had per lifetime? Multiply my number of lives by number of lovers. Do the math dude, I currently have 6 BILLION soul mates on this planet. Take a number."
Snarkiness aside, I really do see the idea of having one single perfect soul mate as problematic on several levels. I think it encourages possessiveness, clinging to a relationship that isn't good for either of the people involved, screening by the completely wrong standards, going into relationships repeatedly with unrealistic expectations, and shirking responsibility 'because Fate meant it to happen' or 'it was in the stars' or some other excuse to not think about the consequences of one's actions or choices. Plus, it does nothing to explain how anyone could possibly be polyamorous by nature; even if you say that some of Plato's original souls could have split into more than one part, that would still only cover a limited scope of polyfidelity. There's a lot more polyamory out there, some of it working better than most common examples of monogamy and/or poly-fi. Human relationships have a much broader range than what suits certain political power structures. (I see Plato's as conveniently serving his own political/cultural context rather well)
Getting back to the original question a bit more, while I believe we don't necessarily get to choose who the heart goes for, we do get to choose whether we pursue that interest or not, and/or whether to pursue a relationship with someone the heart has not leapt off a cliff for. I'm still proud of myself for NOT going for the first 2 women I had a very strong crush on in years, in my first year in California. Both of them were well beyond monogamous into codependent territory. Me and codependence are seriously not compatible, at all, not even a little. I do see variation in how much I will depend on a partner or let them/ want them to depend on me, and I do see interdependence as a totally healthy thing. But what experience I have with people with codependent patterns has been Very Very Bad.
And, I have sometimes tried dating people I did not have strong heart-pounding feelings for up front, to see if something would develop over time. Sometimes it did, sometimes it did not. It took me until last year to finally figure the main key ingredients for whether it happened or not for me: trust, and compassion. If they proved very trustworthy and compassionate, my heart would go there. If they were flaky, unreliable, or I questioned their integrity, or they never showed a great deal of compassion ever, then my heart stayed nice and reserved. That really did seem to explain all of my past experience with this. So, once I figured that out, I've been working with that information, and it seems to be working really well actually. :)
So, I guess to summarize, I would say we definitely do not get to pick who our heart goes for up front, but we do have a lot of important choices to consider as far as relationships go. I see responsibility going the same way: I would not blame someone for who their heart showed interest in (which includes when someone I'm not interested in has feelings for me). But, I do hold people responsible for inappropriate behavior and bad choices, even if the behavior or choices were driven by the feelings in their heart.
And the funny thing is, I'm still a romantic, but only by some definitions. ;)
2. Показала бы всем большой куш и сделала наконец то, что давно собиралась сделать для близких людей!

I think that many people think they have been in love, maybe even many times. How do you know it until you feel it? Sometimes it can be fate (a long lost friend), sometimes by choice (someone that you do everything to impress). I think this is a trick question.
Well, I meant don't love people in that lovey-dovey way. The kind of way in which you want to devote your entire life to them.
Of course, why not love your career, hopes, dreams, and ideals? Stop crushing on boys and girls and start loving the future, so you can do awesome things like get a stable job D:<
Life sucks so don't bother yourself with love
Well I honestly think destiny is a word for a reason. Its occurent. Whatever decision you make, is a decision that has already been made by the Powers That Be, Going with freewill being your fate, because you can do whatever you want to do. Its just semantics.
Я продолжала бы жить так же, как живу, потому что не имею права жить иначе - у меня сын.
Я знаю людей, смертельно больных. СПИДом. Они думают только о себе, они жалеют себя и им наплевать, что кто-то пытается работать и содержать семью. Им нельзя работать - они смертельно больны. Я говорю о наркоманах, моих ровесниках, которые в 30 лет висят на шее у родителей как тля или саранча, и им за это не стыдно. Ведь они СМЕРТЕЛЬНО больны...
Бы да кабы, чтоб во рту росли грибы! :)) *показываю язык и ворчу, ага...
Это присказка такая, а
сказка, ясен пень, впереди! :)) на самом деле невозможно ответить на вопрос, не узнав по-настоящему...
Первый класс, вторая четверть!)
Можно накуролесить семь вёрст до небёс, и будет всё не то...
Ну, попробую, штоля!... ;)
расцеловать всех в обе щёки доделать все дела, что начаты, замириться со всеми, кого добить не успела :)), всё распродам, чтобы родственники долги мои на себя не вешали, и чтобы мне потом в гробу не переворачиваться, раздам все свои животинки в добрые и надёжные руки, если таковые найдутся так срочно, вскопаю огород и засею разумным, добрым и вечным засажу картошкой, чтобы родственники ели и меня нахваливали...
Ну, вроде всё!
И переведу старушку на другую сторону дороги! :-Р
Стив Джобс все правильно сделал
Мне вот тоже осталось пару лет. Пока еще совсем не больно.
I believe it is destined. People are brought together all the time and sometimes, they're meant to play out a long, grand story. Sometimes, they're just meant to be in a vignette. I do believe that there's someone out there for everyone. I've seen too much evidence of that to believe anything else.
- My horrible immaturity when it comes to potty humour. I honestly can't tell a joke that has anything related to poo in it. I just keep laughing like a little kid... ._.
- The phrase "Seriously Business" or SRS BSNS. I can't say the phrases, it's just so.. funny.
"He's gone all.. SRS BSNS!" *giggling*
Sure you can go out with the girls and complains and trash talk, but it's only a momentary fix. You have to honestly let your emotions out to get over whatever it is.
Then promptly stuff your face with something you enjoy. Maybe that doesn't work for everyone, but do something you enjoy, something that you'd normally feel guilt about.
It's about enjoying the little things that make you happy and help you thorough the day, they will help you thorough whatever it is. Don't lose sight of it by trying to reason it all out, or tell yourself you'll gain weight and hate yourself later blah blah. Typical womanly excuses!
My go to for being horribly upset (and usually needing a good try) I watch A Walk To Remember. It's my to cry to movie.
If I'm watching it, I'm upset.
На самом деле, мы все смертельно больны с момента рождения. Старостью. Умереть сейчас или через 50 лет - никакой разницы нет. Поэтому каждый день нужно жить так, будто он последний. Следовательно, последний день нужно прожить так, как и все предыдущие дни до него.
A bit over cast-like, with a little cool (breezy) air not cold. (Ideal Fall weather)
I do not like the extreme heat, I do not like the extreme cold. I like the months that have just a little of one or the other. :)
I wish every one could IMAGINE... RIP John
Скажите вам когда-нибудь приходилось давать взятки, либо присутствовать при даче взятки?
А как же иначе? Одна поликлиника чего стоит или больница? В нашей стране да без взятки? Чинуши без неё и пальцем не шевельнут. Но давать протиииивно ужасно, а куда денешься!
El amor es un sentimiento confuso para muchos. No para mí. Una vez, hace mucho tiempo, una persona citó la Biblia en un pasaje que decía que las mujeres ancianas debían "enseñar" a las más jóvenes a amar a sus maridos.
Con esto, esta persona explicaba de esa manera una idea que me quedó para toda la vida: el amor se aprende.
El amor está fundado en la fuerza de voluntad. Uno no se levanta todos los días queriendo abrazar y besar a la persona que tiene al lado. A veces hay discusiones, aveces malos entendidos. A veces, hay sentimientos muy diferentes de la amabilidad y el romanticismo.
Pero eso no significa que no haya amor.
Si el amor solamente fuera predestinado, qué mal que estaríamos todos. Pero por otra parte, sería demasiado cómodo, pues nunca nos equivocaríamos al elegir, pues el que viniera, sería el que el destino preparó. Nunca habría errores ni aprendizajes. Nunca habría discordias terminadas en bellas reconciliaciones. El amor sería mecánico y robotizado.
No, no. No creo que sea el destino, sino una serie de decisiones que tomamos en la vida basándonos en nuestros gustos, nuestros intereses, nuestras ganas y determinación de querer y respetar a una persona en las buenas y en las malas.
El amor, definitivamente, es una toma de desiciones. Está mientras lo mantengamos vivo. Se va cuando nosotros lo decidimos.
Anyways, in short, you fall into love completely blind with no directions. You don't get to pick why or how you love the person... you just do.
все сложно и очень сложно...
"некий" в беде и просит убей, добей.....??????
БЕДА ж. или бедство, бедствие ср. бедень ж. вят. несчастный случай, несчастие; происшествие, приключение злыдарное, гибельное, несущее вред, убыток, горе (Толковый словарь живого великорусского языка Владимира Даля).
правильное принятие решения для каждой беды... да и куда меня понесло...
а вообще да ... хотя столько черствости
сколько себя помню, мне всегда кажется, что я смертельно болен. люди вокруг меня стареют и умирают, проходят века, а мне всё кажется, что я еще не начинал жить, что это еще какой-то пролог, что всё это не может быть по-настоящему. есть такая категория персонажей - они всегда считают, что "и не жили еще". даже если им скоро на пенсию, или уже, или как мне - 452 года. обычно это накладывается на мировосприятие в виде некой пелены, и такие люди одинаково слабо воспринимают как присутствие жизни, так и присутствие смерти. а люди, которые ярко проживают жизнь, наверное, постараются поскорее её спалить каким-то образом, чтобы был фейерверк. кто-то будет вампирить близких, цепляться за них, осознанно или неосознанно. а кто-то умрет еще задолго до физической смерти.

i always said that i think philosophers are bored old men who havent figured out how to masturbate -.-
becuase they just have an incredible amount of time on their hands and sit around doing a whole lot of nothing
like i remember one of the things that annoyed me back in high school
debating "free will" vs "predetermination"
which sounds simple, but then you can counter-argue
yeah.. the only phil majors i knew were super annoying and just liked to argue about pointless shit
do you have the freewill to think everything is predetermined; or do is it predetermined you will think you have freewill?
how do you know? how do you know it's not just predetermined you will have free will?
because i am smart
and my opinion matters
but my point is... i dont care, because NEITHER matters... knowing if things are predetermined or knowing if i have freewill wont change anything... because if everything is predetermined then it wont matter one way or another... and if i have free will then i will continue on... so in the end, the answer never matters, it doesnt change anything
and being forced to sit there and write papers on it or write essays or listen to lectures
i found them absolutely useless.
i agree completely which is why i said before, phil majors only like to argue pointless shit
makes them feel good about themselves
i r teh smart i argue
and by the way, i was just pointing out how i do know how someone can "counter" the free will argument but like it's just circular logic... its like being stuck in one of those turn-doors, you know the one at big buildings
debating free will vs. predetermination is like being stuck in one of those
Copy paste for the win. And yay I don't care if anyone finds out my AIM screen-name!
I worked for a Friends school once. As you know, the Friends are Quakers. I wanted to work for them because of their social activism - their feelings of world peace. Peace is their identity!
Well, guess what...I was victimized by their anti-Semitism. I left in tears just a few months after I started there. How can I believe there could be world peace if I was bullied by Quakers?
As a 14 year-old girl raised in one of the most conservative areas in South Georgia, I can reply "No, never, not until one country has taken over the entire globe and I fairly certain no one wants that."
Hee, I'm done and I'll finish with something I'm sure you would like better f-list.
"Hello, you're going to grow up to be just like me and love Rose forever"
Long answer: No, there won't ever be world peace. World peace isn't possible as long as people are too caught up on in their own personal melodramas. People will probably always be too selfish to truly care about doing what is best for the world.
I wish that I could honestly say yes. But our race is so messed up, we're greedy, and wanting, and selfish, and if we cannot fix these things (which we can't, it's human nature to want things), then we will never live in a world with peace. I believe that there will forever be a war raging somewhere. Unfortunately.
I hope I am proven wrong.
Ps. Blessed Earth Strong To John
There are more and more people transforming their minds and selves each day, and our generation has been filled with visionaries trying to get this message across to us, if only we would listen: Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, Thich Nhat Hanh, the Dalai Lama...and sure, John Lennon. Our problem lies in the feeling of righteous indignation we have towards our own anger, feeling we are justified when someone has hurt us. While it is a natural response, it helps nothing--but acting or speaking out of anger hurts everything, and only continues the cycle.
So long as that cycle continues, then no...there will never be world peace.
Warfare is part of human nature, so no; it's the same reason there'll never NOT be some form of capitalism - too many people for too few resources, either in reality or in the perception of those willing to fight to gain said resources. Especially since we don't show any sign as a species of slowing our reproductive rate.
only if there is another plague and aliens invade the world.
