IT IS INTERESTING to notice how some minds seem almost to create themselves, springing up under every disadvantage and working their solitary but irresistible way through a thousand obstacles.

Simple as Apples....

Karma is as simple as apples.

KARMA is not something complicated or philosophical.  Karma means watching your body, watching your mouth, and watching your mind.  Trying to keep these three doors as pure as possible is the practise of karma.

Lives Like Ours...

YESTERDAY an irrational current ran through our land once more.  A massacre occurred in Tucson, Arizona, and lives like yours and mine came to an end instantly because a madman confused individual freedom with a call to arms. 

We relive this mass horror too frequently.  Those of us who embrace love and fairness, are astonished again by the random power of evil.  Why is there surprise when sick minds are stirred to commit terrible acts?  Maybe we should pull back from hateful and angry rhetoric that goads the irrational to take murderous steps. 

God bless and heal the wounded, heal our pain and weakness, and take the departed into heaven.
