Do you have a neat web community or chat group you'd like to invite people to? Maybe want to drop your messaging handle and strike up some conversations? Do it here.

Chat/community/personal ads are no longer allowed on the rest of the site, except maybe on /hell/.

Important Note: This doesn't mean that you can't talk about communities or chat groups. You could, for example, have a thread where you ask people about web communities they visit. You just can't open your thread with an advertisement.

One post per service please! Duplicate ads may be deleted. This especially includes discord links. To make a permanent discord link, click on instant invite, go to advanced settings, and change the expire time to never. Dead links suck. If your discord link expires, your post will be deleted and you may receive a short warning ban.

I wish I had at least 1 person who I could share my thoughts with and those thoughts would be heard.
At the start of this year I've lost the ability to feel anything, so now all the chances of getting to find that person are down the drain. I've become more fluent socially because I lost the fear, while at the same time I've also lost any desire to communicate whatsoever. Can't even finish this post properly now.

I'm a peaceful and squeamish guy. I even feel sorry for killing bugs
even so, I took an interest in the army and the navy (I'm not a yank). there's something so cool about their disciplined and hard life, how those institutions can whip people without courage, without a purpouse, a goal, or a skill into shape. it truly is a beautiful thing to behold. I like how they harden mind and body just so average joes can face the unexpected. plus you learn cool things too, from survival techniques to self-defense and trades
and hey, paying you to learn all these things is great

still, I can't even think about myself harming someone else, and that's the biggest downside. it's pretty much what they train you for, too. are there any other similar careers that teach you similar values but don't revolve around harming others? I was thinking about becoming a fireman or a park ranger. similar enough?

Martial arts teacher.
Not a very stable kind of profession, that is granted, but it may be fulfilling. You need a whole lot of self-discipline too, so if you don't actually have that to start with it's going to be a problem. Well you actually need a teacher first and that goes a long way actually.
[read last few posts]
Those are pretty cool ideas too!

I think that part of that hardness comes from being faced with the ultimate reality: death, and the fact that this death is not merely your own, but the death of your family, your progeny, your civilization, your fellow man, your brothers in arms, everything that your fathers ever worked for and everything you hoped to build for your sons. The ultimate reality is that all of that can and will die. I think part of what you're seeking (and maybe I'm projecting, because I'm sure as sushi seeking it) is to be closer to this reality. Everything in civilization insulates us from that reality, from the idea that things that we love can and will die, and that we can face that death in either a glorifying way, or a cowardly way. We can do what is required to prevent that death, by making someone else face it in the combat, even as we face it our selves in that same encounter, and by acquitting ourselves well, we accept and transcend this death.

You want to face and transcend the death, not just of yourself, but of the oblivion of all, and both the monastic and soldierly life deal with that in their own way, but I think that's what you're really after.

Go rucking. Get a backpack, fill it with weights, go for a walk or a nature-walk (or a space-walk). Breathe from your belly and keep your spine straight, as a general rule.

A lot of military jobs don't involve combat and a lot of soldiers never see action, even if they've been deployed during wartime.

Armies employ medics, orderlies, cooks, HR specialists, accountants, therapists, doctors, firefighters, etc. Combat training for these people is less about getting them to kill others and more about keeping them from being killed should the worst happen.

>>5565
It sounds like you're needing something to take the wheel in your life. A lot of the problems and depression of NEET life come from having too many choices and no strong pushes in any particular direction. The structure of army life might do you a lot of good.

The 944 is a great car. Good for a lot of highway driving and is set up stock as good cruiser and its pretty easy to maintain as there were a lot of them so parts are easy to get and despite not having a lot of room in the engine bay, they are pretty easy to work on so long as you dont try to race it everywhere and warp the head and valves.
They also look great and feel like you are driving a jet fighter.

I've got a 2007 toyota camry which is still in really good condition. It was previously owned by my uncle who only drove it to work and back (he also has a minivan which he used whenever they went anywhere as a family). The car was also kept in a garage for its entire life, so the paint is in really good condition. I actually just recently passed 100k miles just last month!

My dad has a new 5 series BMW, and while it's a really nice car I wouldn't recommend buying one outside of the warranty period. These cards need repairs every year and they can get very expensive very quickly. It's perfectly fine to splurge on it if you can afford it as a fun toy, but it definitely isn't a wise choice.

I had a friend tip me off about some caves. Went today late, brought water and such but also an instrument, a laptop, and a usb microphone. Teamed up with a couple and explored/scouted the caves, then found a nice spot to record. Haven't listened back to it but it needed new strings anyway and the acoustics weren't so resonant.

Fine so far.

Here in the British Isles, we've been having horrible weather. It has rained almost constantly for over two days now. It's June, for Christ's sake! Anyway, the winds have also been howling through the night and they blew down a few trees in my garden. Luckily, the house was not damaged, but the boughs are pressing up against my window. On the one hand, this blocks a lot of light, so I have to have my lamp on all day. On the other hand, it looks cool. As if I'm living in a tiny botanist-hermit's hut, tucked away in a massive greenhouse.

Pics related, excuse the cameraphone quality.

Do you have faith, sushi?

I have this old memory when I, as a kid, lost a precious toy. Asked God to help me find it, but to no avail. I blamed God for this misfortune and declared that I no longer believe.

Now I would say I am an agnostic, but I think I really want to find God. God, as someone to talk to, to confess to and to find support in. Lately I faced a lot of difficulties and praying helped me. I even made few liabilities, that I now struggle to accomplish.

When things go well I forget about my prayings and obligations, there is that thought that it is all my work and not some old dude above my head. Until now I went by this and it made me feel like a tiny, tiny man.

I really want to believe, but something is stopping me. Please, share something about yourself.

I can't help but see all churches as nothing more than cults.

 No.5626

nothing organized
I believe there is at least one other higher being, and that being is instrinically tied to this material universe (not apart and distinct from it, as with Judaism)
furthermore, that the interaction of one with the universe is significant, that the overall purpose of life is to transcend this material existence, and to understand the process by which the supreme being/universe is self-creating
I don't have a good framework for this thinking yet

I believe in god but I don't pretend to know anything about him. I consider myself christian in culture at the very least, and I would say I'm a supporter of the church in gwneral. I like catholics a lot, they seem like they look after their own properly. Lots of denominations are too "open" for my liking.
Even if not spiritual, a religion may serve to keep a group working together and looking after one another. Thats the real reason every town would have a church.
If they start caring more for people outside their group then I think it fails at its most important function of keeping a society united, cooperative and secure.

I expect my views are very outspoken though so it's not like I'm going around telling people their way is wrong. I just keep such opinions restricted to people who ask or in the actions I take.

Well, the reason we think cults are bad is because they often turn out to be hotbeds of insane, immoral doings. The Jim Jones cult ended in a mass suicide; other cults only exist to provide a harem for an abusive sex addict. But, some fringe churches aside, the case is not similar in most churches. It might be different where you live; where I live church means a weekly meeting of generally friendly believers who listen to a priest. There isn't much room for a sex cult there.

>I believe there is at least one other higher being, and that being is instrinically tied to this material universe (not apart and distinct from it, as with Judaism)
Interesting. There was a philosopher called Benedict de Spinoza who thought that the world was God. That is, all that exists is the same thing as God and he is not apart from the things He created. The physical universe is the physical manifestation of God and all the minds of people and animals are the mental manifestation of God. Sounds like you might be on to something similar.
