Not to be reached by traveling is the end of the world,
Yet there is no release from sorrow
Unless you reach the end of the world.

The one who is wise and lives... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: FIRE TOUCH
vertical line Posted on Jan.11.2008 @ 08:53PM EDT by chontri

"The fire did not intend to come to contact the hand;
The hand did not intend to reach out to contact the fire, either.
But when a man put his naked hand into the fire;
It got extremely hot like hell and blistered really bad.
In crying, he ran out to share his burned experience with others.
Some would give him a vaseline bandage,
Some would give him a sigh,
Some would give him a laugh.
But none of them wants to have any experience like that,
because they already knew and sweared never touch fire again."

And they're really free from the fire burning and hot.

You're ok now, that's good.  Make sure yourself won't get lost next time by copying your post somewhere safe then you can re-post it when needed.  Sometimes, ChonTri got lost his, too.  And he does that way.

vertical line What about those baby cows, y'know the ones taken from their mothers and put in dark crates, kept out of the light so their flesh remains white, fed powdered milk and stuff in buckets, while their mothers are crying moo and being milked. Do you do them too?
