The topic of the thread is this so called porn. Hence was "focus".
As i said both views are useful.
As for being an "optimist", in our sink or swim world, it is neccessary to survive. You have to find you path of least resistance or be left behind.
As for beauty, too complicated of a topic. Beauty is somewhat subjective. Being beautiful and being ugly can both be bad in some scenarios.
Beautiful women sometimes are given advantages but they also are sometimes subject to prejudice and harrassment.
You cannot pommel Taoism out of me. You certainly can find ibstances where i fail to follow the path of least resistance
Consider for a moment, a Canadian hero, Terry Fox. He had a bitter battle with cancer. Don't get me wrong, it ruined his athletic career. It killed him. He died a painful, early death
All the same, faced with adversity, he ran half way across Canada. Able bodied and disabled celebrate him to this day.
Life is short. Celebrate it. Make the best of your oppirtunities.
And read tge Tao de Jing.
There is no telling what feats he would have accomplished had he not been struck by cancer
But certainly, logic says he would havr been an ordinary man, like you and me. Perhaps
he would be taking a stroll with his kids right now.
I am sure however, he would not have rsised millions for cancer or inspired millions to
Refuse to give up.
You have to play the poker hand you are given. A good poker player can sonetimes make more money
With a bad hand
Don't focus on positive or negative. Focus on making the best of what you have and look out for
Opportunities to find silver linings.
Considrr also Rick Hensen who followed terry's foot steps and toured the world in a wheel chair
He raised 200 million dollars for spinal chair research. Had he not had that terrible accidrnt at 15,
I am sure he would not have achieved the success he did. He married his ohysiotherapist
And has 3 kids.
People over come adversity and sometimes achieve greater ends. Obviously, he was strong and has strong character. His success was still born out of adversity.
