Boddhisattvahs of war, Friends of the mediators,
Friends of the media, Friends of Iraq,
Friends in the middle,
We all have this component some to a greater
(and hence more hidden lack of depth)
The reason I meditate is to expose this
Interestingly those who become realized
tend to INCREASE their spiritual practices
after attunement/realization etc.
The human race
finds it very hard to focus on what is important
(tell me about it)
and therefore the distraction has to be focused
- the horses have to pull the chariot of
our being in the same direction . . .
hence meditation . . .

any obviously suffering crusty brain

When we suffer
(Cructacean speciality ~ into the pot ~

we try and prove to anyone that
might listen [yawn] that the eiffel tower does not
how funny is that?
I suppose it is whether we wish to
devour the teaching:
or be at peace with ourselves:
Peace and Love
