What the world needs more than anything is bodhisattvas, active
servants of peace, `clothed,' as Longchenpa said, `in the armor of
perseverance,' dedicated to their bodhisattva vision and to the
spreading of wisdom into all reaches of our experience. We need
bodhisattva lawyers, bodhisattva artists and politicians,
bodhisattva doctors and economists, bodhisattva teachers and
scientists, bodhisattva technicians and engineers, bodhisattvas
everywhere, working consciously as channels of compassion and wisdom
at every level and in every situation of society; working to
transform their minds and actions and those of others, working
tirelessly in the certain knowledge of the support of the buddhas
and enlightened beings for the preservation of our world and for a
more merciful future.

Since we are the Creator... we do as we please.
We create and we destroy... we pollute and we purify.
We hate and we love... we kill and we heal
we remember and we forget.

But whatever we do
we must experience the Consequences.
All Consequences teach us... unmistakably
that Love is the Answer.

So... the next time we disagree with Foreigners
we send them Bread... Cookies and Wine instead of Bombs!

Violence Creates Violence... Love Creates Love

I am the goal of life, the Lord and support of all, the inner
witness, the abode of all. I am the only refuge, the one true
friend; I am the beginning, the staying, and the end of creation; I
am the womb and the eternal seed.

I am heat; I give and withhold the rain. I am immortality and I am
death; I am what is and what is not.

-Bhagavad Gita 9:18-19, posted to MillionPaths
