False gods

‘Renounce your sins, give up your worldly possessions!’

Is that really possible though? And for the non-religious, what constitutes as worldly, when there is no unworldly?

Without delving into the argument of whether people need religion to guide their morality, lets just go with the assumption that people want to lead lives with some kind of goal or meaning, having achieved something, whether it’s having made a change in the world, or achieving personal satisfaction while still fulfilling your duty to your family, or simply leading a upright, decent life

I don’t like how some behaviour or desires are labeled as ‘base’ because we would be we would be shameful of doing them in public. I think desires are only base if you indulge in them, or let them take control of you.

If you have a greater goal, don’t sacrifice it for a short-term pleasure. The monastery is upon a mountain at the end of the road, don’t keep stopping at little sideway shrines.

 

Goddamn it, procrastination!
