    I'm The Great "Liar"

    This is Jack Ron, I lie lots of times when I get stuck with life. I just like to get away with things so I don't get into a big conflict. The bible helps me with my life that I carry but I don't care about it because it is kinda a bullshit.

    I am misanthropic out of pity

    for humans, I suppose. I don't inherently wish for the race to expire, but I know there's nothing I can do to fix things. Why do I feel this way? More importantly how do I continue living without the misery of living in such a repulsive world?

    There are three precepts by which I live: the first is "Now" : Focus on the present. The second one is "Time" : Nothing really matters with time. And third is "I do not know." Because the moment one thinks one knows, the mind becomes closed. Those three precepts are going to be...
