Why dont we?

Why don't we try to create heaven/utopia on earth?


At the core of most belief this is its purpose, to create community and help us make a good one with moral decisions.

Yet look at the world its nothing but destruction. Every move we make destroys something and often with out creating.

We speak of peace as we smash into people.


I personalty see little hope for mankind.


I once watch a movie I think it was called pay it forward well what every that was the point. The idea was you had to do something(to help) for 3 different people. those 3 people must help another 3 people and the idea is this would keep cycling endlessly. The idea is nice.


The ultimate problem I think is that we have become to big. There are too many of us we weren't meant to cover the earth in this way. A small community could easily have an understanding and peace.  





Is there hope?

I think part of the issue is getting everyone to agree on what heaven/utopia is.  I live with only one other person and we seldom agree on many things.  We love each other so we make sacrifices to help each other.  I find that our individual uniquness is what makes us special.  We are all at different stages of maturity and understanding.  Learning to accept each other and be happy can be very diificult.  I find that I have trouble being kind and tolerant let alone happy when I am stressed.  Just the stress of daily life can be difficult.

I have an idea in my head of what I think life "should" be like.  It is peaceful and happy.  I understand that today it is not that way all the time.  The key for me is to do the best I can to help others and set a Good example.  I've learned that I don't need to tear down others in order to build myself up.  Helping others is a better way.  Now if I could just do it without getting tired.  LOL!!  Oh the humanity!!

Good to hear from ya!!!!  thanks!

Yea I can see that being a problem but I'm guess we all would agree on a place that is loving and kind but yea its sad and far from us

I'm reading "The Case For A Creator" by Lee Strobel.  He describes a story he covered very early in his career as a journalist, where Christians in Charleston, West Virginia, boycotted public schools in protest of books they believed led their children astray from the principles of right living as taught in the Bible.  Like him, at one time I would have thought those Christians stodgy and stuck in obsolete modes of thinking.  Like him, with the help of seeing what has resulted from abandoning the guiding instruction of God's loving guidelines, I now see what was lost when children were taught that right and wrong are relative to a situation and it's okay to decide for yourself whether a thing is good or bad for yourself or someone else.  I believe a renewed respect for the Bible is coming, a revival, if you will.  I only hope that the historical tendency for humans to take things to pendulum extremes doesn't hold true, with an extreme backlash of self-righteous morality instead of an embracing of God's tenets of love and mercy as the guiding principles most cherished.

If we have created heaven/utopia on our earth - then my belief of god and spirtuality would change. The beauty of god and humanity - is we DONT KNOW. NO ONES DOES. And to try to create our own as a a whole - is simply not going to happen. Even back when there was "peace on earth" there wasnt - there was still a drunk father beating his wife and kids - a killer stalking his next prey and so on - because as one of us is thinking i want to send money to feed  kids starving across seas - another person is thinking of getting his next fix. Every person in our lives impacts us. Whether something bad happens to us...your thinking is stronger and you gain knowledge from it. If your talking about creating your own utopia - god has guided us in to do that. Create a family. Raise your family. Be good to your wife/husband - love and pass on your good. But GOOD is harder then it sounds. Because if it wasnt challenging - I know it wouldn't be real. We are tested everyday to make our choices. Some good. Some bad. But to who - to you? to the man next to you - to your mother - to mother nature. I believe the best good is raising a family. Supporting your family. loving your family and praying. There is no one between you and god when it comes down to it. You face god infront of judgement day. He already wrote our book. He knows how it is going to pan out...we just make the choices whether good and bad. Our life to god is but a few days - just as an insects life compared to us can be a few hours but to them it seems like an actual life time. Scientist can humanize it. We cant humanize it.
But i knw my beliefs and way of thinking is not like alot of people. But that is Islam.

Hello all, i am wishing cloudwindgate was still active as what is being said in this thread is just what i am interested in discussing. Is anyone else wanting to talk about this earth and what to do to stop or slow the destruction. Or is there no hope.
     Earth will recover i think but all the beautiful animals and the flora and fauna will be gone i think. And then it all starts over?
Earth
