An idea worth spreading

For a Brilliant Life
Shinjuku (Tokyo), Japan July, 1991

No matter what the reason,
one must never kill another person,
one must never kill oneself.
The wisdom of the Buddhist teachings
begins and ends here.

Daisaku Ikeda From the photo album, “For a Brilliant Life”

I'm passionate about

"Human kind has to get out of violence only through nonviolence.
Hatred can be overcome only by love.
Counter-hatred only increases the surface as well as the depth of hatred."
Mohandas Ghandi

Talk to me about

“First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win."
Mohandas Ghandi

Sincere Ridicule Is a Step Ahead of Being Ignored

Never Give Up, Always Persevere Miracles are 98% effort, 1% faith & 1% patience. Be careful what you wish for,all things are possible. With effort, faith, and patience any being can change creation and/or build a bridge over the theological differences between all of the major world religions If the best way to convince a fool it is wrong, is to give it exactly what it desires. What is the best way to achieve your dreams? Always Persevere, Never Give Up.

The reason I brought up the "interfaith action coalitions" is that I believe this is an excellent example of one of the first steps involved in having individual members all of the major world religions attain true wisdom and understanding.

Most of the belief systems commonly called major world religions have beliefs that are very similar, some examples are: 1. A variant on “We are one!” a. Some version of the golden rule, (includes the idea of karma) i. An awareness that if we are ever to experience world peace the various religions need to treat themselves and each other with kindness and respect 1. Balanced by an EGO centric belief that they possess or have special knowledge of the one true path and/or teaching, thus making their belief system superior to all others 2. We will actually have a true lasting world peace when we can really see how ridiculous this is and learn to laugh at ourselves.

Could the findings at the LHC regarding the speed of neutrinos someday support the idea that quantum mechanics can operate on a larger scale
Quantum mechanics currently functions at all scales. Understanding a basic paradox and its function in our dimension; then incorporating this into the “Standard Model” will eventually enable us to fully understand gravity/time/quantum mechanics. The basic paradox: “Absolutely Nothing” exists an entity, it coexists at the same space, place, and time as its equal and opposite entity “Absolutely Everything”. http://7777777s.com
