52- Everyone,whomever he/she may be is a teacher put on your path
to learn.Just spoke with someone from Amazon,he was so happy to speak to me.He had never met a Buddhist,and he had just finished
reading his first book on Dharma.What surprised him is the calmness in my voice, the way I answered his questions.The non-agressiveness of my tone.I bought a book and due to the seller's
way of doing business I shall not have it Before one or two months.I usually buy my Buddhist books in england at the same shipping price but get them within 5 days.Compassion,comprehension,lack of madness.is part of what the dharma shows us.

53-I thought about the garden tended by a monk living in Mindfulness.His flowers are
Always fresh and green ,nourished by the peace and joy which flow from his mindfulness.One of the anciants said,


When a great Master is born,the water in the river turns clearer and the plants grow
Greener.

56- For those taken by hate or resentment,meditate until every approach and hatred disappears,and compassion and love rise like a well of fresh water within you.Vow to work for awareness and reconciliation by the most silent and unpretentious means possible.

lineage."The Green Tara" whom by the way is Lisa Erikson"s Avatar
This Goddess ,is the mother of all Buddha's.

59-The Four Noble Truths are ,I believe,the core of Buddhism.
Humans suffer......This is the first truth.
Out of compassion,Ihave been sitting in a restaurant for hours,listening to a woman
Who is in human suffering right now.

Iam so glad to have learned Compassion.Compassion has no limit.It also helps developping Metta.Humans suffer,it is their fault.
Ithank Buddhism for such gifts.

61- Idle chatter.one of the vows pronounced by monks.I beleive applies to everyone.The text that follows was sent to me by Bhikkhu Samahita from sri-lanka:

Friends:Empty Gossip & Void Babble Infects & Spoil any Social Sphere!

Once in Savatthi the Blessed Buddha said this:
What, householder friends, is the Dhamma explanation befitting for oneself?
Here, householder friends, any Noble Disciple reflects thus: If someone were to
to address me with gossip, idle chatter, empty babble, hearsay, and void prattle,
that would neither be pleasing nor agreeable to me. Similarly, if I were to address
another with gossip, idle chatter, empty babble, hearsay, and void prattle, that
would neither be pleasing, nor agreeable, nor acceptable to that other being either!
What is displeasing and disagreeable to me, is also displeasing and disagreeable
to any other being too. How can I disturb & bore another being with what provoke
annoy and exasperate myself? Having reflected repeatedly thus, then gradually:
1: He/she will carefully avoid all gossip, idle chatter, empty babble, & void hearsay...
2: He/she will persuade others also to avoid all pointless good-for-nothing speech...
3: He/she will praise speaking well formulated reasoned facts worth remembering...
In this very way, is this advantageous verbal behaviour purified in 3 aspects!

Loong's comment:If this was applied in everyday living.by anyone
living by any government.PEACEat last.

See how hard it is to go through a day without infringing the 3
rules?

With loving kindness
