Yo Sri Bruceji,
Thanks for sharing these (last) words of the Buddha.
While reading them, I was listening to the Daily News
Live show on Comcast and they had Darren Daulton on.
As many know, he was the Phillies catcher for about 15
years, and although an all-star baseball player, he was
never know for his spirituality. As a matter of fact,
he was well know for partying and getting busted for a
DUI. He now is promoting a book he wrote that will be out
next month titled "If They Only Knew". It turns out that
he has become aware of higher states of consciousness, has
been astral traveling, realizing his universal content and
context, etc, and is sharing his experiences as he feels
we all will be having them very soon (apparently relative
to the 12/21/12 Mayan prophecy of the end of the world).
So, keeping in mind the
advice from the Buddha not to
believe anything until we have explored it, etc, we can
now add Sri Daulton to those who are pointing to "IT".
Who would have guessed!

Peace and blessings,
PS: What I was trying to find on the Daily News show was
more about Sri Trotter being a Buccaneer and how this
event will affect the birds. Now that's real spirituality,
cause since they released him I sure have been praying a lot!
