    Default The struggle of the human mind

    In keeping up with the style of modern culture and staying alive what do you think is the struggle of the human mind?

    1. Embracing new technology

    2. Peer pressure

    3. Keeping up with the higher cost of education

    4. Danger of being caught in sudden outbreak of unknown diseases.

    5. To be free from every sort of bondage.

    6. To remain curious, open, unsatiated in all its relations with nature.

    7. To bring food to the table for the family.

    8. To find an immediate solution to the current down turn of the economy.

    9. To get rid of the fear of being attack by so called organised beliefs such as those so often known as the "terrorists".

    10. The financial and medical problems associated with the aging population.

    What are your views on the above or is there any other struggles you may have encounted?

    After read that and thinking about what I have to do in conjunction with all those pointers, I am lucky to get one hour of sleep every week! heh.

    One phrase comes to mind.... Anal Retentive Compulsion.

    My struggle with what some may think of as a "human mind", is staying insane in a world that is sane
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    The relationship between a man and a woman can be a bondage
    when the relationship goes one sided.

    A good way to find out whether the emotion in the relationship is godly
    love or just ordinary human love.

    Usually Godly love is defined as all-embracing, while ordinary human love
    love focuses mainly on one object exclusively, thereby inciting jealousy
    and other not so acceptable emotions.

    Godly love seeks to benefit others, while ordinary love is tinged
    with human selfish desire.

    A human mind always struggles between joining a sweet-young-thing photoshoot for $40 or a decent meal.

    The former a feast for eyes and the later keeps the tummy happy.

    Nevertheless, time will tell as you go through life beauty and struggle.

    Somehow in one way or another you're bound to pump into some kind
    of bondage. The easiest way is to adopt a belief system.

    After shooting a few dozen sweet-young things and having to pay only for the film and
    processing, you won't have the same level of mind struggle as you move forward to
    see a real Lin Ching Shia and Jack Neo in front of your camera.

    The level of struggle is even higher for you are paid to produce pictures of these
    fabulous actor and actress. The subjects are more than feast for the eyes, they keep you on
    your toes with super duper mind struggle during the entire shooting sessions too.

    that is not true, human love or compassion do rise above narrow & selfish defined objects.

    maybe some have a difficulty looking pass themselves. cos in most cases the world view is built around the limits of self.

    "i see you as i see myself, i treat you as i treat myself."

    therefore some need to believe in an entity greater than themselves to do good. when all there may be is the power from within (yourself).

    does it really?

    or does human love or compassion serve a selfish innate need to preserve a good self-image of one's self?
