Do you ever meditate on the profundity of existence?

    And, if so, have you come to any conclusions?

    Daffodils really are very pretty. The human body is amazing. And then there's the ultimate question...does my cat really love me or is she just hungry?

    Have I set the profundity bar too low?

    I don't think you have entirely plumbed the depths.

    Death and taxes. The only certainties.

    Life isn't s h it and then you die.

    I think I've cracked it tbh.

    I wonder that...

    Ah Nazi cat is being nice to me, oh his food bowl is empty... are they connected?

    I have a meditate now and then. My meditation nearly always takes a strange turn towards how bizarre our lives have become and how insignificant we are as individuals. A giant colony just rushing around trying to exist but with most of our efforts going unnoticed and will mostly be unrecorded by history.
    I try not to meditate too often :oops:

    I thought about the The Unbearable Lightness of Being with the afternoon sun on my face. When living, in my house, in my country.

    I do not have time anymore!

    Nope. I am merely alluding to a post made by Jude Fawley on badger-girl's thread about her desire to be rich and thin. I spend little time meditating on much at all, particularly the profundity of existence.

    We're all just ants. Only a bit bigger.

    Enjoy it while it lasts. Except, in the fable, that makes you a grasshopper. Be more grasshopper.

    I find the afternoon sun on my face very bearable, though I prefer it on my arms and legs and shoulders too when I am swimming in a pool, preferably in somewhere like N Cyprus.

    Yes. No conclusion so far!

    I meditate on the superficiality of it all. I am a carbon based life form on a remote planet on the outer spinal arm of one of millions of galaxies.

    You get out of life as much as you put in.

    I have wondered about reincarnation, nothing conclusive but a fascinating thought IMO.

    I sometimes wonder, if there is life after death, where do we all go and how do we all fit in? Thousands of years and billions of people! Would we get fed? And if we're supposed to meet up with our loved ones, how do you find them amongst that lot?

    You sound as if you think life after death is a physical existence. I am not sure whether you are referring to reincarnation BTW.

    I expect, if there is, that they put up the razor wire ages ago to protect the borders.;)

    Reincarnation is different to what I imagine. I was being silly - we won't be all milling around up there. Maybe our 'souls' go back to the mother planet: sometimes, I think we're descended from aliens.

    Did you see the first 'Matrix'?

    That was actually a documentary. But then they brainwashed you afterwards, you see.
