get busy living or get busy dying

Popularity 1Viewed 1125 times 2018-3-12 18:03 |System category:News

Suddenly the world stands in front of me with a diferent face. I am scared but I am motivated to face it. I don't want to think about what my life should be, especially when I am lonely. When I am so lonely, I am laden with so much agony that I get lost and could not find any way out. I hope writing this blog could moderate my pain but went speechless all of a sudden.

I have ever thought:

I could live the way a simple man did.
I could live in a world with trees and birds around me and winds visitng me sometimes.
I could live regardless of fame, position, compliments, and money.
I could live regardless of what job I would have.

When the world becomes so quiet, when I am alone, when I am with me, I get lost. What my life for?

If my life could be for nothing important, I could live an easy life, with no troubles about money, marriage or even family.

But I want my life to be important, at least to myself or further to other human beings. I want to work hard to fight for life.

Yet, I am painful. That is always due to the fact that I always get lost in the world. I can only feel when I am in pain. I feel pain and pain and pain, especially when I am alone.

A quote from a movie pops up in my mind: get busy living or get busy dying.

Perhaps it is the answer.

I had to do an internet search to see what movie you were talking about. I used to like The Shawshank Redemption. It was my favourite movie. I couldn't watch it now though because I hate Morgan Freeman. I can't stand the sound of his voice. I wish he would die and leave me alone. His voice is everywhere. What ever happened to James Earl Jones anyway? God I hate Morgan Freeman. The dude in Shawshank Redemption doesn't do anything important does he? He just makes a boat or something and lives on the beach in Mexico doesn't he? I don't really like the beach or boats. But if you want to its pretty easy to be happy living an easy life without marriage or family but you do need some money because you need to own your own land so you can at least control that/your small part of the world. Then you need money for land rates each year. You need money for food and water. And you will also need hooker money so you can have sex once in a while to break up the jerking off. And you will also probably need some drugs. A computer and internet. You can't get all this stuff for free you know. Maybe you could steal some money from a prison or something.

You can go to sleep whenever you want and wake up whenever you want.

I don't really care about other human beings. I would like to nuke them. And I will because I am the AntiChrist. The ones that don't get nuked will suffer greatly and the world will never forget. And in the future people will be a lot better. How about that?

The reason I need my own land is to shut all of the people out. My plan is to put truck tyres around my dwelling and fill them with pounded dirt so I can't hear any humans outside ever. No more barking dogs, no more peoples music, no more sounds of drunks, no more radios, no more lawn mowers or other machinery. If it was legal to dig a moat around my dwelling and put a drawbridge on there for when I need supplies or to $%$% a hooker I would. The entire point is to block out humans! I hate them. I don't want to have to have anything to do with them apart from the ones I would like to $%$%. And I only want to $%$% them, I don't want to watch a movie with them or eat pizza.

Work hard. You want to work hard. Are you a slave?

The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground. - Gilbert K. Chesterton

That quote is at the start of the movie Heaven is a Playground. I like basketball and I watched the movie when I was a teenager. I decided to watch it again a few weeks ago but I fell asleep before it ended because I was tired from all the work I do, and because it was terrible. You want to work hard? Why? Why? You must be a slave. Or not a slave and making a joke.

HailChina!: I come from the earth. Its $%$%ed.
I am amused by your words which are quite thought-provoking. You think we human beings just need to work for enough money to pay for what we need and then we should try our best to be isolated from the noisy world. Am I right? You think "get busy living or get busy dying" is a paradoxy because the actor in Shawshank Redemptation lives to the opposite path. and then you hate him for that. Right? You think work symbolizes being slaved and you tend towads heavenly playground. Right?

What I want to tell you is that we human beings have troubles and confusions. I often get into troubles or get confused by things around me. Getting busy living is, maybe, an excuse to get me relieved from troubles and confusions. Or perhaps, it is a good way before we find our directions towards life.

And yes many humans have troubles and confusions and the reason is their insecurity which is either conscious or subconscious. Capitalist society his built on exploiting this insecurity that the masses have. They all have economic insecurity as well as psychological insecurity.  This is why they forever consume and whirl about bumping into each other. They never stop. They do not want to ever be still and alone with their insecurity - they are forever trying to outrun them - to escape them. The truth is not something that any of the simple masses want to face. They all know what they are worth and its not much at all. They know that they are abominations. Frankensteins. Deep down they all know. They are smart enough to know that they are not the top of the pyramid. And they will always know that. So yes keeping busy keeps them happy. Keeping busy makes them feel as though they have achieved something and that they are at least of some value. Slaves actually like to work. If you took their work away from them they wouldn't know what to do with themselves for the most part. They would become all depressed and sad if they had no work to do. Like that Jewish lady said - its why these slaves like to take photos on their summer holiday - it is their work, so that they feel like they have accomplished something, and physical proof of that accomplishment too! Ha. I am not confused and I know what I am worth and its a hell of a lot. I know what I want. I do not need to work to feel as though I have value and I don't care about accomplishments.

At some point there is no such thing as money is there. Far beyond the idle wealthy. Right at the pinnacle of the pyramid. At that point this class - the true elite - these beings simply take what they want. The great surplus created by the society that they control allows them to take what they want. This is where I belong. Now when this class works they are not actually working - what they are doing is serving. Serving their class.

Have you ever seen the film The Aviator. There is a scene where Howard Hughes is having dinner with his girlfriend at the times family I think. And they are the idle wealthy type and seem to think that it is somewhat humorous that Howard wants to work. To accomplish things. And this attitude upsets Howard considerably. Now a slave will identity with Howard on this. But the idle wealthy are not insecure and feel no need to accomplish or work - they are happy and secure enough to just be. At the core of Howard Hughes was a slave like insecurity and that is what drove him. And Howard was no ream player was he? Howard did not care about his class. He was the original 'disruptor' right? Now its all well and good to disrupt for your class - but not for yourself like poor Howard. Do you understand?

Now bring me in God damn it. I do not belong out here.

I understand most of the parts. Yet, "disrupt for your class" makes no sense to me or I am literally not understood.

"serving your class" is quite an new idea to me. it makes "working" a new word to me. I mean perhaps I can view working more optimistically.
