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.

Are You a Slave Too? Stop Being A Slave To The Banks And Credit Cards

Have you seen those commercials on tv for those companies that sell fixing your credit problems? They say something like let us fix your credit, we can reduce your balance by as much as 50-60% or even more. Well I've got news for you, forget that, if you're up to your neck in credit card bills, car payments, mortgages, etc., file bankruptcy, yes file bankruptcy, and STOP being a slave. Let's say for some reason you're having trouble paying your bills, you're just able to make minimum payments or have missed a few.
That's what happened to me, I had what the Dr.'s said was two mini strokes, and missed one months payment on my credit cards, on which I'd never missed a payment or even been late in 15 years. Did any of that count? Hell no, not even a little bit.  Suddenly, rates went up, accounts were closed all with no warning. A couple of them did work with me on setting up hardship payments, but they closed the accounts anyway. Two I never missed a payment, making the effort to find the money to pay them through the problem, but as soon as they found out I was having problems, they shut me down, but of course I was expected to continue making payments at interest rates now of 26-30%. So I got back to work and got back on track making my payments as newly agreed, but their one wayness, their back stabbing, their loan sharkness was on my mind. I was selling things to free myself and also pay for my move to Calif.  Some of that went toward paying bills, in addition to getting ready to move. Finally the day came and I moved. I got to Calif and continued to pay, though money was short. But I was still burned up over the fact that I'd never missed a payment or been late, then after one bad month, my name was mud, I was a deadbeat as far as they were concerned, my previous history counted for nothing. Then I found out the company I was working with was closing their doors. I immediately stopped paying my bills, called a bankruptcy attorney recommended by a friend, made an appointment and drove 50 miles or so to consult him. I retained him, paying 2700.00 for his services. I filed bankruptcy and freed myself. I am no longer a slave to the banks and credit cards. If I'd kept paying realistically I'd have been working for them the rest of my life, and still owed them money when I died. After my BK I owe nobody anything, except rent, and utilities.
Free yourselves, file bankruptcy today.
