March 7, 2012 No comments yet

Tweet Your parents have pure love for you in the depth of their heart. Of course their personalities may not always be aware of that.

Osama and the Karma of State-sponsored Killing

May 4, 2011 12 comments

Tweet In the light of 9-11 and the killing of Osama bin Laden we understand the reactions of revenge and of hatred. Their expression was easy enough to see in the outburst of joy at his death in many parts of the US. It made some of us rather uncomfortable. That we are staging the [...]

September 1, 2010 1 comment

Tweet Everyone is our teacher, everyone is part of God, the only question is: are we listening? Of course at times I am far too busy with my self-importance to listen to anyone.
