I tend to look at life in terms of what I have which is of real value such as being born with vision, hearing and those things that many seem to take for granted. Even to the fact that I have been healthy all my life and was born without the terrible kinds of deformity that some start life with.

I also like to think in positive terms about the things we do not take with us when our visa to life expires and do not worry so much about material things as being more important than who we are ourselves. In fact being content with who we are and what we have I believe is very important and is good for mental health.

However, all about me I find those who are discontent with themselves and their possessions, and they seem to forget that our time here is transitory and we take nothing with us when we go. Not even the vehicle called 'our body'.

Many believe that success is first achieved when you have an inner understanding with oneself and that success follows naturally from this.

Do you think that is true and what would you wish for in life?

Something for yourself or somehing for another?

And do you wish for something you may never get?

I wil kick this off ..........

I wish this forum were not so much of a children's playground and more like a discussion board ...........     {:soso_e183:}



Or is that too big a wish  .............

Thanks  .........

I think the new mods did try very hard initially  ...........

But became 'hoist with their own petard' ..............     

And their actions have been seen at times to be rather arbitrary ...........

Good call expatter, good call.

Who would like to listen to you ?

..........

Unless you are the leaders of them ?  ......


But I know at least one would follow you--netgress ...

As she can come up here in the middle of night to defend for you.

Good call expatter, good call.

Who would like to listen to you ?

I don't think NE Tigress does just that  ............

She often defends her ideas on China and indeed herself against those that would attack her for her personal ideas and views ..........

Why  ......  ?

I have even see you defend yourself and you have every right to do that  ............

But it does not mean you are doing that for someone else  .........
