Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

a little gem...

Found this on a blog that changes so drastically and so often that putting in a link to the relevant article is utterly pointless (sigh), as is getting angry about it:
Anger closes the heart. It is hot, burning, fire. In its passion it pushes away, condemns, and makes everything wrong except itself. Your heart goes out of reach, and you lose basic sanity. Anger can appear as irritation, frustration, fury, rage and hatred; repressed anger can manifest as depression, emptiness, coldness. Because it contains so much energy, anger is not all wrong - it is an expression of the passion for justice and fairness, for basic rightness - so in denying it you are also denying your feelings, your engagement and passions for life, for what is appropriate and humane. But the expression of anger can cause tremendous damage and hurt; it is described as a single match that can begin a forest fire. The fallout can be huge and you invariably have no control over the repercussions, Finding a way through this, where you can keep your passion but change your unskillful means of expressing it, is the path of transforming it into gold.' ~ Ed & Deb Shapiro, Unconditional Love: How to Live With an Open Heart in a Changing World, pp. 68-9.
One day I will learn to deal with my anger better...
