No tofurkey, either…

“Destroy ‘the ego’, hound it, beat it, snub it, tell it where it gets off? Great fun, no doubt, but where is it? Must you not find it first? Isn’t there a word about catching your goose before you can cook it? The great difficulty here is that there isn’t one.”

– ‘Posthumous Pieces’ by Wei Wu Wei.

Discrimination at home

True Home – Thich Nhat Hanh

Who do you discriminate against?

Who do you wish suffering on? Who do you suffer for? What arbitrary characteristic calls for discrimination and suffering?

Individuals with different politics? Other races? Genders? Cultures? Religion? Education levels? Sexuality? Species?

See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?
– Dhammapada

An earth for all sentient beings

“It is our earth, not yours or mine or his. We are meant to live on it, helping each other, not destroying each other.”

– J. Krishnamurti
