In our ignorance we imagine a degree of omniscience which is largely unwarranted. This is especially so if we are one of THE gang, the boys club, the jack the lads, who slap each other’s backs in the full and extensive knowledge that they, we, know it all. We are the best.
I have a very weak and loose hypothesis based on visions and dreaming, that it is possible that I am an incarnation of one of Buddha’s closest disciples namely the scholar Bakula.
In Tibetan terms that would make me some kind of a tulku. It would be I who pass the white scarf of blessing over to you.
But if you have and continue to “diss” me and belittle me as a loony, what would be the implications for you?
It is one of those “place your bets” situations.
I am JUSTIFIED in being a complete and utter dick towards this being. He is wrong and we are the righteous.
There is no such thing as karma, I am right, I know best. My wonderful career is tantamount!!
There is no karmic implication for our nation in treating this being so poorly.
Or is there?
It is funny how people in ignorance despite imagined knowledge, fail to appreciate that other people have different values.
Oh well, perhaps over thinking, pass the Merlot…
