"Good and bad are fairy tales. We have evolved to attach an emotional significance to what is nothing more than a survival strategy of the pack animal. [...]. Good isn't really good, evil isn't really wrong, bottoms aren't really pretty. You are a prisoner of your own meat." Sherlock's Sister

"you are a prisoner of your own meat, good or bad but curiously conditioned -
regret is the mind killer"
Danie van Wyk
Very interesting !
Scholars taught this in 500BC
Giving is the first of the "Six perfections" for living a meaningful life - Giving, Moral Discipline, Patience. Effort. Concentration and Wisdom
From Giving comes wealth
From Discipline comes Happiness
From Patience comes beautiful forms
From Effort comes the fulfillment of wishes
From Concentration comes Peace
From Wisdom comes Liberation
Giving our time, our knowledge, our money.
Possessions, our good heart, etc etc - never expecting a thing in return is the first and important step to Liberation of the Mind - consciousness !
