One day when P'ang layman (740-808)was selling bamboo baskets at the market place of Hung-chou. Seeing a monk begging alms, he took out a cash and said:
-Can you tell me how to appreciate alms?
The monk had nothing to say.
How can you construe a truth and turn it into a lie? Ya, can't. Truth is truth.
If you have diverged from a truth and emotionally set your intention on a lie you're going to get hell or pain.
Who the f*** cares when it boils down to the illusion of power?
Wise compassion is needed. You're not going to help those who are clearly aware that they are playing in the mire of ordeals. Wise compassion is needed because it's more intelligent to help those who want to be helped instead of wasting your time on a**holes.
Let the masses claim their territory. While you prepare your silent retreat. F*** them. Seriously.
