when i read the title of this thead i thought it was going to be about the problem of when praying in public of keeping your prayer directed at God, and not thinking about what the people around you think of your prayer

No, content does not imply improvement or use of a talent, but rather stagnation.
Only if one is happy with stagnation. We, obviously are not.

the sense of happiness is the insistence to get the chance of being fake

reality is present constant absolute realisations and freedom constant increasing needs to b right
when u r real, being positive is the least condition of being in constant needs of self superiority that would allow a sense of freedom to realize right

meaning happiness ends is being opposed to reality
positive cant b an end, freedom only is always right

being superior as free will is much less opposed to truth then being positive

being superior is relative so not really existing while being positive is against all existence right that have to b absolutely free too

and i think roast is right in saying that content is for stagnation always

content is always else right, so insisting to b in touch with else is stagnation will, this is what prove how natural life is an evil lie will

and what i start my post with, ur happiness is fake then happiness is never true

Happiness is not fake, I am a happy person by nature, Am I happy ever minute of every day, no.. thus that is my human side.

but I am happy a lot more often than I am unhappy, because I accepted God's promise.. of Life and life more abundant. as have my childern, wife parents... My father passed in 88, I am happy I will see him again, and we will fly fish for Bream on a crisp spring morning anytime we wish.

Tell me, does your originality make you less fake than who you speak of? Are you not trying to say your truth and your freedom are no less diminished than else's? Are you truly free, or simply acknowledging that there is freedom?
I did not say i was happy, merely what i define it as. Fake or not.

what is relative could b right or even mayb true, but what is objectively absolute fact is not related to any nor one so certainly to truth

so it is never about me when i mean existence fact

this is where our divisions is the most clear

u cant but mean u or to u or out of u or for u

while for me, i never confuse myself with else and truth is the most real else absolutely

since u r asking for smthg honest about myself i would say that i hate u and ur life

i hate life, that is why it is easy to me to claim how all natural life is evil

i hate ur life i mean ur happiness i cant stand it, i hate ur ways of sounding contempt and repeatin ur comfortable stands in using others energies

free is mostly about being independant while it is mostly for rights, objective rights before too oneself rights

I'm in agreement with the op. I liked "the purpose driven life" it goes with my core belief that you must match action to words.
