“There seems to be an inborn drive in all human beings not to live in a steady emotional state, which would suggest that such a state is not tolerable to most people. Why else would someone succumb to the attractions of romantic love more than once? Didn’t they learn their lesson the first time or the tenth time or the twentieth time? And it’s the same old lesson: everything in this life—I repeat, everything—is more trouble than it’s worth. And simply being alive is the basic trouble. This is something that is more recognized in Eastern societies than in the West. There’s a minor tradition in Greek philosophy that instructs us to seek a state of equanimity rather than one of ecstasy, but it never really caught on for obvious reasons. Buddhism advises its practitioners not to seek highs or lows but to follow a middle path to personal salvation from the painful cravings of the average sensual life, which is why it was pretty much reviled by the masses and mutated into forms more suited to human drives and desires. It seems evident that very few people can simply sit still. Children spin in circles until they collapse with dizziness.”

quamraeros asked: I actually was talking about the whole standard for white people being attractive is incredibly low compared to black people/poc. If you look at most notes on posts, most average white boys get tenfold of a drop dead poc dude.

manhood:

I know, that’s what I was adressing aswell. People on here will go crazy for guys who looks like Gollum (anorexic + got the seasick look going) or basically any white guy with the holy trinity combination tattoo beard and any hint of muscle
