The remorse associated with fear turns a person into a sadomasochist, who is very pleased with his own suffering. Suffering, such as if a person atones for their sins and it reduces the pain that causes him a conscience and guilt.
Of course, boredom is a mortal sin and a source of endless suffering. But boredom is necessary for a person to find love and so be saved. Trying to kill boredom with entertainment and vices is obviously more like firewood under the devil's cauldron than saving you from suffering.
Pride is a desire to change the outside world, not yourself. Different variations of this desire are the desire to save the world, nihilism, the eternal search for the causes of their problems outside themselves.
A sinner, doomed to suffer, is a person whose main aspirations are peace, pleasure, fulfillment of desires and passions of the body. He can not find peace until he satisfies the passion of his desires and strives for them to find peace.
When you love and admire a person, you learn good things from them. When you are afraid or envious of him, you learn bad things from him. From the first you grow and rejoice, from the second you degrade and suffer.
The carrot and stick in life are the same, but there is a nuance. We quickly get used to pleasures and there are always few of them, but we run from pain and are afraid of it. As a result, subjectively, the bad turns out to be three times more than the good.
You feel bad because you're bad. You could be good and you will be good, but you are lazy, you are looking for the easy way. Alas, the easier the path, the harder it is. The more you avoid doing what needs to be done, the more you make it worse.
Epiphany is when you relax and stop whining and suffering about the imperfection of the world. The world is beautiful and perfect. The world loves us. Only a fool and an ignoramus scolds and fears the world.
You are angry at imperfection. This is stupid. Everything is perfect in this world, but there is no limit to perfection. Uniqueness is what distinguishes one perfection from another. Your desire to make all perfections equal is pride, the source of all your suffering.
A person is always dissatisfied with something, and this is fine. As long as there is discontent, there is life. You should be happy with your discontent. Discontent means that there is work, there is a hell that can be turned into heaven.
Resignation is when you take flies from your soup without too much suffering and keep eating it. Arrogance is when you are choking on your soup with flies but keep eating it. Alternatively, you refuse it and die of hunger.
A paradox is two opposite two points of view. Intelligence easily combines the opposite into a whole and is not afraid of paradoxes. In the absence of intelligence, a paradox is perceived as a major problem, engendering fear.
