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.

This Is A Sad Comentary And Not A Pretty Picture

Found on Facebook and wanted to pass along

  1. The police supporters in the media would have us believe that society is getting worse, hence the rising numbers of police killings.

    I look at it from a different viewpoint. If the only tool in the box is a gun, that is the tool that you go to.

    1. True, but unfortunately a gun isn't the only tool, there're common sense, compassion, intelligence, kindness, just plain reluctance to kill, before you get to the real tools of tazer, and baton or just plain physical intimidation and fists. But, and it's a big but, the gun is the easiest to get to, the easiest to use, and the most permanent. Not to mention that if whoever has decided to kill for whatever reason the victim is unlikely to object. At least until now with the proliferation of the video camera.
      Murder by cop has been around as long as there've been police, and there've been police in one form or another as long as there's been people. But now it's being observed because everybody and their brother has a video camera, and the evil is right there on the TV screen or Youtube for everybody to see.
