    Default WTF

    I have this thing about standards for what is offensive. What is wrong ? To me sensitivity, empathy, implies that people are themselves familiar with the fact that judgments exist.

    Ugh don't know how to say this right.

    Familiarity equals the past. The past being what we already know or have experienced. When people are sensitive to perceived negativity, it is because on some level they have experienced it's truth. Either by thinking the same thing or experiencing someone who has been through the same thing.

    This is where our standards come from. Is there anyone who looks at, what if the circumstance didn't exist. It would not be bound to the same standards. It would be truthful. Truth and recognition is N O T offensive.

    eh just a thought.

    Emotions rise due to past experiences?

    Would have been a better thread title.

    Just a thought.

    Emotions are not limited to the past, at least shouldn't be.

    it's fun to be a Buddhist that girl. You get to have a lot of nasty sex without thinking about going to hell. as long as no one gets hurt (which is highly unlikely in your case I would guess)

    Samskara in Buddhism short and sweet -

    Everything we like to everything we dislike are short term or long term Subconscious mental conditionings due to our desires and dislikes picked up by the 5 senses (mind included).

    Therefore these form the 5 aggregates.

    And the 5 aggregates are called the aggregates of clinging.

    Why?

    Because we cling to them without even knowing that we do.

    It is also explained in Buddhism that these 5 aggregates form our personalities. If we learn to be mindful of ourselves (deep level of introspection which is called Vipassana) we begin to realize that our likes or dislikes are actually not permanent. That they are ever so changing.

    One day you like this, the next day you are bored with it and the next day you hate it, etc

    We also begin to realize that our negative and positive emotions are only temporary. We begin to slowly lose our die hard bonds with these emotions (which is inevitable if you keep on seeing things as temporary).

    We slowly begin to see things the way they are……
