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.

Interesting Concept

Came across an interesting concept. Each of us is born into a world that is centered around us. In other words, my world is slightly different than your world, although they appear the same in every respect they are in truth slightly different. It requires a lot of thought to follow this, because on the surface it makes no sense at all, but when you think about it, it does.  Each of us perceives the same thing differently, even when we think or even agree that we're seeing the same thing. It's this perception partially that makes the point.
I'm rapidly moving out of my depth, but here's what I think it means. The world gives the illusion of success, success in business, having a good marriage, living a good life and having great kids. But my reality is none of that, true there've been temporary success's but eventual failure in everything. Someone else inhabits the same world and illusion, but is successful, has a great job or business, meets and marries the perfect mate, has great kids and a fullfilling life. It's the same world, or seems to be yet it's not. Does this make any sense at all?
