I need to reap rewards from good deeds.
I do NOT want to waste energy from bad deeds.
So, I'm very happy.

Az if you're not going to do stuff for others, then how are you going to clock up good deeds from which to reap rewards?

Very valid and good question!

Yes, I love what I do... that includes creating art, designs and stories for others to appreciate, inhabit, use and enjoy. When they love mine, whilst I lay ZERO expectations on anything in return, I may be surprised to find rewards that these people give to me!

That is what I call 'passion', 'intrinsic motivation' and doing so for the love of work's sake, regardless of whom I'm working for - I could be all doing it for myself, and in fact, such works turn into usable fruits for anyone else to use, i.e. I run website and deliver all the gifts I could find all the people to give to FREE OF CHARGE - hopefully that they read my terms and conditions as stipulated somewhere on the website: no selling off artworks without my consent!

Please note Az that the other thread has been deleted as a duplicate, the question is, of course is, was it a duplicate and this the original because this was the second thread you created. I would have to argue that this is the duplicate and since the duplicate thread has been deleted this thread should spontaneously vanish as an affront to causality.

I still say that you Anonymous should try the former some time and might discover how one actually achieves the latter.

How is that relevant?
It's from a very well loved fictional story by Douglas Adams. The book is called "Life, The Universe and Everything", it's the third book of five in the "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" science fiction trilogy. In the book they discover the meaning or answer to Life, the Universe and Everything is the number 42.

The stories are rather nonsensical but contain some of the best humour ever written, in my opinion.

It's relevant to your OP in that it's complete nonsense.

Azu, we're deleting and combining your duplicate/similar threads. Then moving the finished *product* to the Belief area as it has zero to do with general discussion about atheism, and references religious stuff such as "heaven".

Do not try to tell our moderators how to do their jobs please. And stop cluttering up the forum with multiple posts and threads on essentially the same topic(s). All discussion on this should remain here.
