Om Mani Padme Hum

Matthew 25:40

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 7 1-6

1. Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Groundhog...the movie

This is one of my favorite movies, it's not that funny, and I'm not really much of a Bill Murray fan, even considering there's a faint chance, very faint, that he might be related, but the movie makes you think.
The first and most obvious thing is how fantastic it would be to start over and know what you know now. Granted, doing the same day over and over seems to be taking it to a ridiculous extreme.
Coming to the main point,  it takes him how many times of doing it over to finally get it right? How many to figure out what he wanted?  Was what he wanted, love or Andie McDowell, really worth it? 
More important by far, over all those days he finally, somehow, learned to be a decent person.  How many lives must the average person live through to accomplish the same small thing?
There's more to learn, much more, but for that watch the movie if you haven't.  I've hopefully made you want to look under the surface.
