@massdebater
"What else can I do to keep me from suicide."

I've joined religion, pursue the achieving of a traditional family, rejected hedonism, and realized that the system of pursuing innovation will ultimately lead to human misery, yet to live well in it means to contribute to it, ultimately I've always felt an overwhelming emptiness and purposeless darkness, but my new life choices have never made me feel more alive than I've ever been.

Be as bad as the world will let you be.

Reasoning is if I can do 'degenerate' shit like fucking every weekend, cheating, getting fucked off my chops, hurting people then the universe must be evil for allowing me to do so. I'm not going to live a good life searching for truth while this inherently bad universe rewards loose women better. We don't live in a movie world where the good wins in the end. Blame God don't blame me.

However, for the man who studies to gain insight, books and studies are merely rungs of the ladder on which he climbs to the summit of knowledge. As soon as a rung has raised him up one step, he leaves it behind. On the other hand, the many who study in order to fill their memory do not use the rungs of the ladder for climbing, but take them off and load themselves with them to take away, rejoicing at the increasing weight of the burden. They remain below forever, because they bear what should have bourne them.

"I take upon myself the deeds of all beings, even of those in the hells, in other worlds, in the realms of punishment. I take their suffering upon me, I bear it, I do not draw back from it, I do not tremble at it. I have no fear of it, I do not lose heart. I must bear the burden of all beings, for I have vowed to save all things living, to bring them safe through the forest of birth, age, disease, death and rebirth. I think not of my own salvation, but strive to bestow on all beings the royalty of supreme wisdom. So I take upon myself all the sorrows of all beings. I resolve to bear every torment in every purgatory of the universe. For it is better that I alone suffer than the multitude of living beings. I give myself in exchange. I redeem the universe from the forest of purgatory, from the womb of flesh, from the realm of death. I agree to suffer as a ransom for all beings, for the sake of all beings. Truly I will not abandon them. For I have resolved to gain supreme wisdom for the sake of all that lives, to save the world."
