You will also know full well that every predator close to you will probably smell that entire bloody situation happening – which is why you need to close the Read More >>

On Hungry Ghosts by L.B. Johnson

In Buddism hell doesn't exist as a "place" - it's created by individuals, actions, thoughts, and words---a consequence of life for which each individual is accountable. Other faith-based believes notwithstanding---that is also true here on earth, not of the "hell" as depicted in scripture but those places we find ourselves where we don't want to be. I was at lunch at a chain Italian restaurant with a group of ladies from a volunteer group.   One of them was NOT having a good day, and when our very young waiter came by and asked how we were doing she said, quite boisterously  "We're all Read More >>

That is Read More >>

The Times They Are a Changin’
