Awake

-Are you a God?
- they asked the Buddha.
- No.
- Are you an angel, then?
- No.
- A saint?
- No.
- Then what are you?
-
I am AWAKE.

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.

You Can Comment On Or Follow This Blog If You Want To

Hint, Hint....  
My philosophy in starting and writing this blog was to post about things that interest me,  pretty much everything does, and if other people were also interested great, if not also great. My friend and so far only follower calls this is a lofty perch.  The other thing is that I don't pretend to be an expert on anything I talk about, I have some knowledge true, and lots of opinions, theories, guesses, conspiracies, whatever, but I've been wrong before and will be again, so I don't worry about it.  But I'm sure many of the people that have visited are as knowledgable or more, and able to add to, or correct if needed something I've said, or suggest other things to talk about...
For example, one commenter mentioned some of the sacred books of India, which got me looking at the Shiva Samhita again, then the Gita again, and now I'm rereading the Mahabharata again, (the one by William Buck), I have the 12 volume set but it's not as easy to get to. Which proves that comments are useful, educational and motivating. I hadn't read any of these for several years, after packing most of my books for sale, but keeping a lot, don't worry, for an eventual move back to Calif.  He started me thinking so I dug some out. 
So anyway, the point of all that is, if you want to follow please do, if you have a comment critical or not, don't be shy, tell me, if you have a subject to discuss, tell me that...  If you have a blog that you think would interest me or that I'd want to follow, please tell me.

By the way, my friend, and so far only follower "MorongoBill," mentioned above, has his own blog, dedicated to preventing the area of the California desert around the Morongo National Preserve, as well as other areas, being overrun by industrial solar and/or wind farms. Which amazingly, I have learned from him and other environmentalists he's turned me on to, will destroy habitat of the desert turtle and many other species native to the area, as well as the views. Personally, I'm a mountain person, I prefer the woods, and streams, to the sand and creosote bushes of the desert. But amazingly reading Bill's blog, and those he's pointed out, has got me thinking the desert has a lot more to offer than just a place to 4wheel, dirtbike, or go shooting.

  1. Hi Folks,
    I am the "morongobill" mentioned above in the post, and I'd like to invite you to join the conversation here at my friend's blog. I've known Leroy for over 30 years and it still amazes me how much he knows about so many topics.

    I just discovered the other day here, for example, that he owns and has read those 12 books, Hindu I believe,and I knew along he is well versed in things like the occult and ancient civilizations, reincarnation- you know the stuff you hear about on the overnight radio program- "Coast to Coast".
    Heck, he'd probably do pretty good with his own radio show, as he really knows a lot about things.

    However, I will throw out there, that I held my own against him in chess ;-)

    Join the conversation here on this blog, feel free to suggest topics even, I'm sure my friend won't mind me saying that. And tell your friends and family to stop by as well.

    Vaya con dios, my friends.
