My long term goal at the moment is to go to India. To do this I need to maintain good grades in college. I ultimately want to find a good woman to enjoy so that I can finally relax, thing is though as much as sex is extolled in the media, down on the ground in real time the system doesn't place much emphasis upon validating people's basic emotional and biological need for affection and security.:( I have hereby given up the notion that the college experience is full of getting laid every weekend and having a good time, notions I was spoonfed and lied to about before I arrived here.

Now it's all long term, get good grades, strong finish in all classes, get to India, land a job as a historian or museum curator, make $$$ and finally attain my ultimate desire after many years of anxiety, asceticism and exhausting mental labour.

Give me that piece of paper that says I'm entitled :deal , get the job, get the money and then it's FINALLY about what I REALLY WANT Dammit!

Develop myself, my family and people towards the archtypes and pro-creative images we inherit within our racial soul. To me development towards the ideals and heroes of ones race and people are the ultimate purpose in life, as they are our guides towards perfection (and growth) of what we call "soul" or "eternal self" or whatever you like. I guess thatīs just what nature and evolution make us do, whether we like it or not.

Big part of that is the struggle for pro-creative politics in my country i.e. the struggle for National Socialism.

For the simple joys of life.

I expected more people to comment on the concept of "Germanic Cultural, Racial, and Spiritual Preservation." Some people seem more worried about "The simple joys of life" forgetting to mention our future as a people. I believe that I live almost entirely for my folk...much more than for myself as an individual.

Edit: No disrespect was intended against NP by his quote. His statement just summed it up well and helped illustrate my deep belief.

The answer is obvious, I live...to die one day. I would like to say I live to have children, but I have not chosen that just yet. If I did, have I really died? My genetic material will live on, so am I really dead? Or just recreated...in another younger soul?

I donīt know, I know what I have really lived for and now everymorning is such unexpected as the following one if thereīs one. It is beautiful to fill oneīs mouth with plenty of words about destiny, live and death but the I can be only be sure about nothing.


Thanks Jennifer, you "reinforced" my confidence on "web-dating".:D

Sometimes I wonder. Even with my intense curiosity about almost everything, life begins to pall at times. I guess that the main reason I continue to live is that I want to see what's going to happen next. I suspect that Kull must be VERY young. I wanted to live forever when I was 11 years old, but, I now realize that long life can be a burden and a curse. I have watched two relatives decline into helpless senility, existing because thay weren't allowed to die, in nursing homes. I consider that a horrible fate. I have accomplished all that I REALLY wanted to, but I can't say that it gives me any great satisfaction.

A post of mine at The Phora:

"I'm tired of being a teenager. I'm tired living in this modern world. I don't enjoy 'metal', I don't enjoy rap. I don't enjoy fucking women I meet at clubs, I don't enjoy drugs and I don't enjoy getting shit-faced on alcohol every weekend. Which is why I don't. 'Time is out of joint'. I don't need a God to tell me how to be a decent man. I don't need to universalise any maxims of action, I don't need practical reasoning to understand what is virtuous and what is not. I don't like do-gooders, messianists, and some people I find... degenerate.

I think I have a lot more in common with Mazdak and Ixabert than I let people know. I am not a perfectly normal guy. I've had discussions with friends about 'hitting rock bottom', and I've come to the conclusion that hitting rock bottom - far from being a 'what does not kill you makes you stronger' trick - isn't worth aiming at. I'm not trying to make myself miserable, or more 'happy' in the same sense Christina Aguilera fans are attempting to. Happiness is not as important as doing what is proper, and pursuing excellence, and having a bit of crazy fun every now and then.

Right now I would like to phase into another time/space/era where I can find a beautiful and intelligent and kind hearted (and areligious) woman, get married, have a few kids, and read them Aesop's fables, the Illiad, teach them virtue ethics and greek philosophy, Shakespeare and Charles Dickens, boxing and cricket, target shooting and the art of eating pizza at one in the morning after you use black-powder in the garage to smoke spiders out, an appreciation for fine music, history, and the best western civilization has yet produced.

Unfortunately I was born into an era culturally dominated by decadent scum."

what kind of a question is that? we live because our conciousness tells us to, for our own self-preservation. if you mean in specifics, like things that are tangible, then I would say that knowledge, wisdom, music, happiness, and love are among the most important things in my life and they are what makes me live on.

Anarch, you are an anachronism. Thank God (or whomever) that there are still a few like you around. Sixty years ago, most college students were much like you. College was a place for intellectuals, not a refuge for social misfits. Intellectualism is not only uncommon these days, it is despised, even in the colleges and universities where it should be fostered. A person with refined tastes is regarded with suspicion or even contempt. Values such as yours are, alas, a rare thing these days. This is why I have often said "This is not my time; this is not my world; these are not my people." I find the values which I have lived by obsolete and derided. Anyhow, you have my sympathy and admiration.

Wow, I couldn't have said it any better. Today I went to the "Dharma Talks" club at my college, and it was just me and one other guy. We did a death and dissolution meditation, and it was really interesting, because a common thing that happens to me when I've smoked pot and gotten really introspective is I become COMPLETELY aware of my own mortality. Sometimes it scares the living shit out of me, but it made me think of all the importance we place upon elements of the "rat race" of the modern world and our society. How much of this is really necessary?

And sometimes my more extroverted "peers" i.e. family and friends ask 'Well if it terrifies you, why do you do it?' well, my answer would be that becoming aware of my mortality, making a "friend of mortal terror" as Marlon Brando so eloquently put it in Apocolypse Now when I change my perception, it can make me feel truly thankful to the Absolute, that I am alive.
