Hope vs Despair

 Share

Recommended Posts

Please add memes / posts to this thread about hope. Someone out there will be despairing and may be uplifted by remembering the awesome power contained within us.

 

 

Hope =/= wishful thinking. 

 

Hope =/= positive thinking.

 

Hope =/= turning a blind eye. 

 

Hope =/= pretending everything will work out well. 

 

Hope =/= ignoring the horrors occurring around us. 

 

Hope =/= dismissing evidence.

 

Hope =/= feeling happy. 

 

Hope =/= a closer of minds.

 

 

------------------------

 

 

Hope = the antithesis of despair. 

 

Hope = the fuel that keeps us going through great adversity. 

 

Hope = a tool to keep our mind open to possibilities. 

 

Hope = an acceptance that we don't control all things. 

 

Hope = the reason many people are still alive today. 

 

Hope = an infectious vibration that others can contract.

 

Hope = a cultivator of productive mental attitudes. 

 

Hope = understanding that we can't always see all paths to resolution.

 

Hope = a healing energy.

 

Hope = a source of resilience.

 

Hope = something that can't be forcibly taken from us. It's all ours.

 

 

In other words hope = an actual, well-documented solution to a great many problems humanity has faced and will face.

 

 

Despair is not. 💚

Hope.....all these nice sounding words on hope is not as good as it looks

Essentially hope is sitting on your arse and waiting for something to happen.

You think something good is going to happen

Someone like god or rambo or james bond will come and fix everything for us all

We just got to wait with a bright optomistic hope-mind

 

I never come across a successful buisnessman saying that he owed his success on hoping a lot

Never come across a successful musician, football star, bodybuilder ever praising the virtues of hope

At its best, it keeps you from dipair and maintains a kind of bright optomism. I ll give it that.

You wait for some "benevolent universe" to magically put right all the wrongs for you

 You get things fixed or changed by taking action, not lying on your bed dreaming it ll all work out if i think hard enough

Epically conflating hope with wishful thinking and then attacking hope instead of wishful thinking.

I dunno about hope being the "chief happiness", I'd say psilocybin, LSD25 and cannabinoids are better contenders, but it's a good quote nonetheless. 😎💚

I'll accept Truth, and nothing but The Truth. With Truth is certainty.

It's not necessarily what some might think or say it is. In fact, what some say it is is actually the opposite of what it is. As such, they will have to "live" with/experience those beliefs whatever they might be...as we are doing NOW. (what is repentance?--change of mind).

In Truth Is Reality. Ya can't have one without the other....

By Grace and Mercy It has entered this deceptive nightmare- fraudulent "reality", It came here with us, but has been forgotten, and has had shit heaped on it to keep it out of our awareness, to discredit It, but that which Is True Eternal cannot be hidden forever or destroyed, that which is of untruth is of the limited and has an expiration due, inevitably, it will be discarded for The Real.

"when you have given up hope,i will teach you will"

 

elps to cure one of fear. ‘Cease to hope … and you will cease to fear.’ … Widely different [as fear and hope] are, the two of them march in unison like a prisoner and the escort he is handcuffed to. Fear keeps pace with hope … both belong to a mind in suspense, to a mind in a state of anxiety through looking into the future. Both are mainly due to projecting our thoughts far ahead of us instead of adapting ourselves to the present.

Heres my position on hope

I can appreciate the posative, beneficial aspects of hope

But considering the great mess we are in i say its a time for action to fix the problems rather than sit and wait hoping all the time

 

Our situation is urgent. If we dont DO SOMETHING in the next few months we are seriously fucked.

They are building the prisons and straightjackets now as we speak

 

Digital currency

Social creditscore

Mass detention of non compliers

Mandatory chips

Tracking our every action

Etc etc

why do you say that??

 

Well, this is the OP where it states the sole purpose of the thread:

 

"Please add memes / posts to this thread about hope. Someone out there will be despairing and may be uplifted by remembering the awesome power contained within us." 

 

 

But it seems to be attracting the despairing who - instead of adding something about hope to counter the despairing - have come along and attacked hope itself.

 

I find that kind of ironic, but sort of funny. 😂

Don't worry about it. I'm not even joking when I say that it's given me more laughs than I've had since Saturday. The irony is really tickling me the more I think about it. 😁
