Eating food from trash cans? Yeah, I've been there. Sharing, as a commodity, is particularly profound when it isn't projected from the materialistically moneyed? Meh. However, poverty is not a guaranteed precursor to altruistic giving. I CAN attest to that as well! :) I'm saying that spirituality, whether it is founded in kindness or founded in foolish optimism, CAN (that is, there is a "chance of") do some good things. Again, I'm not hopeful. But maybe it might... ;)

I found out that when you let go of whatever weight you carry and just let go, give in to life, stop resisting and just breath, amazing, amazing things happen, you just have to see for yourself.

Do this while meditating, in the midst of your meditation, suddenly let go, let go, let go, accept whatever is, do not resist, let go, breath, let go, let yourself space out, let the weight fade away, let go. Let go of everything, worries, plans, people, situations, memories, problems, happiness, sadness, let go of everything, let go even of yourself, how you do this? Space out, embrace the space, the emptiness, the nothingness, give in, give in. Soon you will arrive at your natural state.

Mantras have this mystical thing about them, they open you up to more, they wide your awareness. Just the simple repeating of words that mean something to you has the power to put you in a light trance to receive answers to whatever you seek. If you ever get an audible answer, a meaningful message, something motivational, use that as a mantra, it has even more power.

People are just people, regardless of the context they're in. "God made man, man made religion" and "Every religion was right for that people at that time."

Whatever happens 'out there' also happens 'in here' because everything has one thing in common. The greatest of deeds are not going to be done by those that believe they are Spiritual, they are going to be done by those that are human.

Talk to that older person and give her a hand, she's cynical of this world too and the next time she interacts with someone will be the next time she goes shopping. Find even small acts of kindness and don't expect any rewards but do then because that's the person you are.

Dare to be different.

Hello,

It seems that saying such things as “ be the change you want to happen”
“God helps those who help themselves”, suggest that it takes more then prayer to make things happen.

If no action and/or effort is taken then one can pray all he/she wants, but change, comfort, or whatever is being sought will not happen, IMO.

Yes, there are times in which prayers seem to go unanswered. What is the intent behind the prayer? What is truly being sought after? Is there doubt? These can affect where focus is placed?

Big requests like world peace, end to suffering, end to illness, takes more then prayer. Takes change and agreements. Takes efforts to change how “we” as a society lives. Takes looking at ourselves and what causes such “ill” effects.

Can be given all the signs, guidance, encouragements, and opportunities. If one just ignores them or takes no effort to create change, then will remain where one is at, IMO.

Not always easy. Sometimes what may be desired or wanted may not be what another desires or want. At times it is just the time for the other to move on. Sometimes, patterns will repeat until efforts are made to change them.
Sometimes, it has to do with more then what I want or felt is needed.

Life is interwoven with in and with out. Prayer can bring focus, comfort, and hope. What is done with these seems up to each and every person, IMO. Also, how willing and able one is to follow through, adjust, and listen.

My thoughts on this.

Your point?

Awareness is the most fundamental building block of existence. :P

That's why I used the word "can" instead of "will," to express ambivalent reticence from making a definite proclamation on the matter of correlation of such (e.g. "greatest of deeds") to spirituality. Way ahead of you! ;)

i think evil, negative side is more forceful at stage 1 or so but in the end good will win.

I don't think there's any one home to answer our prayers, God in my opinion is imaginary, why?, because he doesn't have a physical presences.
