Ha. Love it. But I don't think we need worry about "why" just as I doubt most of us remember that day anyway.

Most of us? You know about me then? It was chilly and foggy in the morning of my birthday but warmed up nicely by the end of the day. The next day it was both cooler in the morning and warmer in the day as I tweaked my powers. :mrgreen: .

It is our deeds, the accumulated of goodness and kindness, that define us and ultimately are the true measure of our worth. Service is the coin of the spirit.

And how you ask are we to walk the spiritual path? We answer: say little, love much, give all, judge no one, aspire to all that is pure and good - and keep on keeping on

It's difficult in times like these: ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us, only to be crushed by grim reality. It's a wonder I haven't abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I still cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart
- Anne Frank

How does one gauge between what is "good" and "not good"? Is there a set of criteria?


Criteria will lead you astray. You know what is good and what is not good. No point relying on either religion or government.

Thanx luv, but even Krishnamurti would ask you not to quote him.
You cannot barrage the world with quotes and expect some kind of result.

Krishnamurti was advocating a genuine inquiry.

Even if things don't unfold as expected, don't be disheartened or give up. One who continues to advance will win in the end
