-Are you a God?
- they asked the Buddha.
- No.
- Are you an angel, then?
- No.
- A saint?

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.

Ran over a Groundhog Today... Destiny?

I was on my way to Joe's down in Sherburne tonight to pick up the lasagna that I'd ordered for dinner. I was driving my van down the road toward Rte 12 when a groundhog ran out from the side of the road.  Normally they turn and go back when they see the lights or feel the vibrations of a car, but this one ran right under the wheels of my van.  It started me thinking, was it his destiny to die being run over? Was it my destiny to cut his life short? Did I cut his life short?  When we were planning our coming lives was this part of the plan? It had to be. One second either way and he'd still be alive.  It sure makes you think.
