    I usually shout " All I hear are problems! I want solutions!" at everyone until the problem stops, or the room clears out.

    You could apply that to existential crises as well.

    Yes. Exactly. Compassion is one of the best (in my opinion, the very best) forms of taking responsibility and "letting our own light shine." That is exactly what that quote is talking about.

    People say that the next stage or era we as conscious beings, are going into is a time of self love and self compassion. I really believe that by starting with our own self compassion we can leave our hearts open to show compassion to others.

    I think compassion in all forms is just one of the many by products of taking responsibility for ourselves.

    I agree. You are truly a wise woman.

    The answer is being and non-being.

    We perceive being through non-being, and we perceive non-being through being.

    We try to avoid our destiny as beings through technique.

    And of course our technique on Typology Central is mbti.

    Some of us are skilled technicians.

    We are so skilled, we pull the wool over our eyes, and forget who we are.

    That's what Christianity is supposed to be.

    Christianity is about the blood sacrifice of the Son to appease the anger of the Father.

    And then we are told to adore the Father.

    Normally parents adore their children, but child abusers tell their children to adore them.

    Christianity is based on the child abuse of Isaac the son of Abraham when God told Abraham to tie up his son and stand over him with a large knife ready to cut him up alive.

    Image how Isaac felt.

    This is a clear case of child abuse. And forms the basis of Christianity.

    Christianity is supposed to be about stopping slave revolts by promising them heaven in the after life if they just hold on a bit longer...

    I don't know the absolute answer to everything, but I have a range of partial ones.

    Well... in some ways... Christianity itself is another reincarnation of the life-death-rebirth mystery that existence is infused with. The question, if you will.

    Jesus' teachings are the answer to that question. If that makes sense.

    Well, in a way, yes, exactly. Sacrifice yourself to heal the wounds of another. Love.

    I sort of see all religions/belief systems in that light. The structure is the question. The principles are the answer.

    IMO the question doesn't matter half as much as the answer.
