If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.

The Sandy Hook Incident

God bless the little departed ones. . . 

The world is still mourning and regretting this recent event. 

In the past, this humble blog has presented similar incidences and scenarios, the last one was the incident in Norway here being an active shooter/mass killing scenario.

With regards to adopting certain security measures, Israel being a nation and a people living with a grim reality of unrest and terror in their midst, have adopted these strong learnings in their daily lives which we've also featured in this previous article relating to airport security.

Now, this very recent article is another expansion of policies and measures by the Israelis again to cope with the dangers that has confronted its school system, in which the young are very vulnerable.

While such measures are still very much up for debate, including how viable they are in our own settings, it does make one pause to think and consider just how much are we willing ensure our level of safety and security in today's world.

Types of Gun Owners

Been watching this guy since sometime back. Not the most subtle but very knowledgeable indeed. Can't really add much of anything since most of what he says hits the mark so to speak.

So which type are you?

Not a gun owner/user? Ok then, think wider, broader and more honest in terms of your lifestyle, training and outlook in life.

Tough answers, eh?

Heaven and Hell

I've been wanting to write about Meister Eckhart for sometime (after I finally get my lazy ass to do so though. . . )

Anyway, a movie back in the early 1990's called Jacob's Ladder made a reference to him. It was a supernatural drama about a man being troubled psychologically by his personal crises and dreams. 

The scene below is when a very helpful chiropractor aides the main character "Jacob" not just physically but also spiritually from the teachings of Eckhart.

The Tao Of Yao (Ming)

"How does a single blade of grass thank the sun?"

"It is not a violent strength like fire or something aggressive. It is like the ocean, very peaceful, very quiet when you look at it. But you can never underestimate the power that is in there."
