Caring ~ Dalai


The paradox of our age
We have bigger houses but smaller families,
more conveniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicines, but less healthiness;
We’ve been all Dalai Lama way to the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street
to meet the new neighbour.
We built more computers to hold more information
to produce more copies than ever,
but have less communication;
We have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.
These are times of fast foods but slow digestion;
Tall man but short character;
Steep profits but shallow relationships.
It’s a time when there is much in the window,
but nothing in the room.
Dalai Lama

The Cracked Pot

“A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master’s house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. 💥

For a full two years, this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his master’s house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect to the end for which it was made. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.💥💥

After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. “I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you. “Why?” asked the bearer. “What are you ashamed of?” “I have been able, for these past two years, to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out back to your master’s house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don’t get full value from your efforts,” the pot said.💥💥💥

The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in his compassion he said, “As we return to the master’s house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path.” Indeed, as they went up the hill, the old cracked pot took notice of the sun warming the beautiful wildflowers on the side of the path, and this cheered it somewhat. But at the end of the trial, it still felt bad because it had leaked out half its load, and so again it apologized to the bearer for its failure.💥💥💥💥

The bearer said to the pot, “Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of your path, but not on the other pot’s side? That’s because I have always known about your flaw, and I took advantage of it. I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back from the stream, you’ve watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my master’s table. Without you being just the way you are, he would not have this beauty to grace his house.”💥💥💥💥💥💥

Moral: Each of us has our unique flaws. We’re all cracked pots. In this world, nothing goes to waste. You may think like the cracked pot that you are inefficient or useless in certain areas of your life, but somehow these flaws can turn out to be a blessing in disguise.”💥💥💥💥💥💥💥

CARING ~ Buddhism 🗝☸️🗝

Story ‣ Drunkard Disciple

Drunkard Disciple 2 - Story ‣ Drunkard Disciple
Drunkard Disciple 3 - Story ‣ Drunkard Disciple

A Zen master had hundreds of disciples 🗝

They all prayed at the right time, except one, who was always drunk. 🗝

The master was growing old. 🗝

Some of the more virtuous pupils began to wonder who would be the new leader of the group, the one who would receive the important secrets of the Tradition.🗝

On the eve of his death, however, the master called the drunkard disciple and revealed the hidden secrets to him.🗝

A veritable revolt broke out among the others.🗝

“How shameful!” they cried in the streets,🗝

“We have sacrificed ourselves for the wrong master, one who can’t see our qualities.” 🗝

Hearing the commotion outside, the dying master remarked, 🗝

@peacewriter51 Shalom 🗝🗝

“I had to pass on these secrets to a man that I knew well.🗝

All my pupils are very virtuously and showed only their qualities.🗝

That is dangerous, for virtue often serves to hide vanity, pride and intolerance.🗝

That is why I chose the only disciple whom I know really well since I can see his defect: drunkenness.”




And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sahara, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth.

Abraham asks Sarhahar to prepare food using fine meals for visitors passing through. As Christians, we have the responsibility to provide for one another just as God has provided for us. An act of selflessness and kindness certainly goes a long way. When helping a friend in need, we are also demonstrating the love of God, so we must give our best! God has blessed each one of us in unique ways. Let’s be on the lookout for opportunities to bless others.

Editor: note the spelling of ABRAHAM & SAHARA in the Bibliography format translation does very as history has shown

Abraham and Sarah are longing with all their hearts to have posterity and now, in the opening scene of chapter 18 of Genesis, the Lord appears unto Abraham. (Genesis 18:1) We don’t know anything about this vision, but then three holy men come to visit Abraham and Sarah on the heels of this vision. They give them two messages. The first message is that Sarah would have a son. (Genesis 18:10)

Now, when Sarah, who was in the tent door behind them, heard this, the King James Version translation says that she “laughed within herself.” (Genesis 18:12)

He continues: “The name Sarai, which God would later alter to Sarah, means “princess” or possibly “queen,” suggesting royal blood. Was this perhaps a reflection that her bloodline ran through the royal patriarchal line to which Abraham himself was heir? Or was her father, as an Islamic tradition tells, called Haran and did he rule as the king of Haran (perhaps Abraham’s uncle)? Or, as another Islamic tradition relates, was Sarah closely related to Nimrod or one of his highest officials? (Given Terah’s high place at court, some sort of blood relationship with the Nimrod dynasty does not seem impossible.)
