    Obviously Lilith you have never been to Tibet to see the treatment of Tibetan women at the hands of these Tibetan monks and their leader The Dalai llama
    Women were not allowed to be educated and were treated like slaves and not allowed to Socialise with males and not allowed out after dark

    When the Chinese entered Tibet this worm the Dalai lama and his cohorts fled the country with the Nations Gold and left its people bankrupt
    Sadly this scumbag in spite of all his wealth is still leeching funds from the gullible of the western world.

    “When even the brightest mind in our world has been trained up from childhood in a superstition of any kind, it will never be possible for that mind, in its maturity, to examine sincerely, dispassionately, and conscientiously any evidence or any circumstance which shall seem to cast a doubt upon the validity of that superstition. I doubt if I could do it myself.”

     

     

    “There isn’t a foot of land in the world which doesn’t represent the ousting and re-ousting of a long line of successive “owners” who each in turn, as “patriots” with proud swelling hearts defended it against the next gang of “robbers” who came to steal it and did — and became swelling-hearted patriots in their turn.”

     

    “The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot.”

     

     

    “Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.”

    What if we stopped celebrating being busy as a measurement of importance? What if instead we celebrated how much time we had spent listening, pondering, meditating & enjoying time with the most important people in our lives?

    Racism is a refuge for the ignorant. It seeks to divide and to destroy. It is the enemy of freedom, and deserves to be met head-on and stamped out.
