Speaking to Soon, Spiritual Enlightenment

I've been having tremendous anxiety as of late. To alleviate these symptoms I turned to the wise teachings of the Buddhist's of Western Australia, whom I've been following for years, and years to come.

I'm trying to stay in the moment. To rest in peace. Attitude is everything. Ajahn Brahm goes as far as to say to find beauty in the worst of life, like rapists and murders.

I want to be reborn into the heavenly realms. Brahm, says that you have tremendous powers in the heavenly realms, like being able to search for your old friends in all the realms of existence, you're basically a trans, hyper, dimensional being that fly's around all over the place, I think you got a body, you would probably be a purple ghost, with lots of arms and flowing robes, like ten heads, and dance and gyrate all over the universe. I want to be that!

Which leads me to my next contemplation, Nirvana, the cessation of suffering. Buddha, is said to have reached this ultimate bliss. When I think about it, I wouldn't mind not living another human life. I think in this lifetime I can learn everything I want and prefer not to come back and experience this again. I just want to not exist. I want my mind, and spirit to not think of anything anymore. I want to reach the end of experience. I would like to be nothing.

Thats what reincarnation is all about. You keep getting reborn until you figure out what life is about- enlightenment. I guess the more compassionate, and pious you are, that will determine your next life. When I go, I hope to be a heavenly being, than get bored with that after ten thousand years, and go into non existence.
