Avuṭṭhikasuttaṃ

This was said by the Lord, said by the Arahant, so I heard: "Bhikkhus, these three kinds of persons are found existing in the world. What three? 

One who is like a rainless cloud, 
one who rains locally, 
and one who rains everywhere.

"Now what kind of person, bhikkhus, is like a rainless cloud? Here, a certain person is not a giver to anyone; he does not give food, drink, clothing, vehicles, garlands, scents, ointments, beds, lodging, and lamps to recluses and brahmins, to the poor, destitute, and needy. This kind of person is like a rainless cloud.

"Now what, bhikkhus, is the kind of person who rains locally? Here, a certain person is a giver to some but not not a giver to others. Food, drink, clothing, vehicles, garlands, scents, ointments, beds, lodging and lamps he gives only to some recluses and brahmins, to some of the poor, destitute and needy, but not to others. This is the kind of person who rains locally.

"Now what, bhikkhus, is the kind of person who rains everywhere? Here, a certain person gives to all. He gives food, drink, clothing, vehicles, garlands, scents, ointments, beds, lodging, and lamps to all recluses and brahmins, to the poor, destitute, and needy. This is the kind of person who rains everywhere.

"These, bhikkhus, are the three kinds of persons found existing in the world.

"Neither to recluses nor brahmins
Nor to the poor and destitute
Does he distribute his store
Of food and drinks and goods;
That base person is called
'One like a rainless cloud'

"To some he does not give,
To some he offers alms;
That one wise people call
'One who rains only locally

"A person renowned for his bounty,
Compassionate towards all beings,
Distributes alms gladly.
'Give! Give!' he says

"Like a great storm cloud
That thunders and rains down
Filling the levels and hollows,
Saturating the earth with water,
Even so is such a person.

"Having righteously gathered wealth
Which he obtains by his own effort,
He fully satisfies with food and drink
Whatever beings live in need."

即使一個人用心照遍十方的任何角落, 都尋不到一個珍重愛惜他人的程度超過於愛己命。 同理,十方所有眾生沒有一個珍重愛惜其他超過於愛惜自己的命; 因此,願自我得到安樂的人不應該傷害凡有情及生命的。 【相應部1-75】. Pages. Home · 巴利文-中文【A-N】 · 巴利文-中文【P-Y】 · 巴利- 漢語 · 聆佛教唱誦【真好聽】 ...

From Cafe Corner
I will leave this here and go center my thoughts, center my work, go answer to this internal dialogue or questions on creating a life, work and financial wellbeing.
I left my work for the summer study, and to finish some of my trainings.
Now, I am wondering if, that is what I would like to go back to ?:)
I love the work but, it takes up all my time and doesn't really pay my bills.

Minimum wage in U.S. has to be really a focus of politicians.
Working, studying, managing family/ children, caring for ones own health...it all takes time.
If we have to work for a company, that does not mean ones life is given to them, retire with sickness and be stuck with big medical bills later into life.
I wonder where money gets created, how some care for profits than the people but.....face the reality, come up with a better plan for life and living💖💐💜🌺🌹💝

1984 Genocide In India
I came across this movie and I was shocked to learn about the Genocide in India. Here is the link to the movie Amu:
https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=eqqtxZMG_Zk

I remember Indira Gandhi dying and some sort of curfew, or violence in India but I never knew about this. A horrible situation. I will be reading on this for a while.
It's interesting to see a mob behavior, people don't really think, just follow the mob and what they do as a group.

Using little babies for their political relations.Hypocrisy of Syrian government officials.

The newborns were evacuated from a rebel stronghold to the capital, Damascus, after lengthy negotiations earlier this month. Today, they died of heart failure as they awaited surgery.

India is crazy about WhatsApp. In the end FB probably wants to own the world.

http://money.cnn.com/2014/02/19/technology/social/facebook-whatsapp/
 
Your individual messages on WhatsApp are still safe; that end-to-end encryption isn’t going anywhere. But this change introduces a more insidious kind of privacy erosion, of the very sort people flocked to WhatsApp to escape.

Facebook is evil, tho...!
