:D

 

People are more violently opposed to smoking than to potentially-extinction-level nuclear accidents, endless oil spills killing the oceans and rivers and their live creatures by the billions, and hundreds of thousands of toxic chemicals in our food, water and air because it's so much more satisfying to harass something with a face.  

 

Also quite a few are more violently opposed to meat eating than to monoculture plant agriculture because meat comes from an animal they can theoretically pet but monoculture plant agriculture kills whole species of animals they can't pet -- from soil-based microorganisms that made the earth fertile and livable, to the Amur leopard, Javan rhinoceros, Northern Sportive lemur, Western Lowland gorilla, Leatherback sea turtle, vaquita and saola (you probably haven't even heard of the last two) with hundreds of thousands of in-between species of birds, insects, fish, and wild plants --

because hypocrisy and voluntary cluelessness make for a better foundation to take a holier-than-thou stance upon.

 

Oops...  that was a long one line.  Couldn't help myself. 

Dang look at the big brain on her!!! :D

Mistake is not for mistake. Mistake is for correcting. Is it not so?

A few years ago, a friend of mine walked in on his girlfriend cheating on him with his buddy.

 

This was his one-liner, said immediately (and quite loudly) upon entering the bedroom and catching the two of them in the act:

 

"Damn, he's pretty small."

Both Wisdom and Love are lost in the pursuit of self-righteousness.

Recognize mind has never once had a thought that wasn't your own choice already.
Mindfully choose compassionate thoughts that are a pleasure to experience and the urge to silence thought passes.
With no urges, the need to cling to some thought passes with it.
Unlimited love,
-Bud
