Hillary Clinton Just Obliterated Jeb Bush In Front Of Jeb Bush

In verbal battle that may be a sign of things to come from the former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton just destroyed all of Jeb Bush’s talking points, and even his superPAC, right in front of his face. While at the annual convention of the National Urban League, Clinton took to the stage before Bush, and was able to state her case before the former Florida governor even got a chance to say…

Have you heard the 'you can break my soul, take my life away, beat me, hurt me, kill me, but for the love of God, don't touch her!' Phrase ? Can you make eremika fic out of it ?

I really, really wanted to do this one in canon but with the lull in action right now it was hard to do something, and we still don’t know too much about our human villain yet so I didn’t want to speculate a ton and write something that hasn’t happened yet. Besides, I never really have them in danger in a modern au so that was kinda fun ^^

“Eren, please, it’ll take a second,” Mikasa said rolling her eyes when Eren locked his car behind them.

“Then it’s a second you’ll have company for,” Eren said, tucking his keys in his pocket before gesturing for Mikasa to go. She looked like she was gonna fight him on it again but she seemed to realize waiting on whether Eren came into the bank with her or not was gonna take more time than just walking into the bank.

The AC hit him immediately, making him regret walking in here with just a t-shirt and long shorts. Why did they always have to overpower the air like that? It was August yeah but they didn’t live in the middle of the desert or something.

“Okay, so bank and then to the mall,” Mikasa said, taking her place in line behind a few other people. “What time is Armin gonna get there?”

“Probably about now. You know he’s like a half hour early to everything,” Eren said.

“It’s to make up that you’re a half hour late for everything.”

“C’mon, Mika, I am not,” he whined but he knew the smile on her lips.

“Yes, you are. You’d be late today too if I hadn’t been at the house forcing you to leave.”

“Okay, that may be true.”

Signs And Symbols- Dharma Wheel

Continuing The Reading…
Id like to make a correction to this part of the reading I normally catch issues in this book that I know about. For instance the Dharma Wheel here each spoke represents something… In this reading it only tells 7

Dharma Wheel
~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Dharma wheel or Dharmachakra is used as a symbol in both Hinduism and Buddhism. It is an eight spoked, sometimes rendered quite decoratively. Each spoke of the wheel represents one of the pillars of belief that applies to these Dharmic religions.

1. Right Faith
2. Right Intention
3. Right Speech
4. Right Action
5. Right Livelihood
6. Right Thought
7. Right Meditation
(Edited and fixed below. I just typed how it was in the book)

The wheel symbol in general is complex and is covered elsewhere; this particular wheel represents the notion of overcoming obstacles, difficulties, and challenges.

Buddha’s Right Action

What is meant by “Right Action” in Buddhism? Right Action focuses on the physical. Actions of the body. We must seek to live in harmony and compassion. In order to accomplish this we refrain from the  ten unwholesome actions. 

These are:

  1. Refrain from taking the life of any being 
  2. Refrain from taking what is not freely given
  3. Refrain from inappropriate sexual conduct
  4. Refrain from speaking falsely
  5. Refrain from divisive speech
  6. Refrain from using harsh words
  7. Refrain from idle talk and gossip
  8. Refrain from coveting other’s possessions and positions
  9. Refrain from resenting the good fortune of others
  10. Refrain from holding a closed mind
Trust life, even if you cannot trust people. For human nature is unreliable, but life itself is ruled by immutable law. Right action leads always, in the end, to victory.
—  Swami Kriyananda

It’s really funny how nobody even tries to defend Planned Parenthood’s organ trafficking. The feminist argument doesn’t work for that one. It’s really hard to spit out words like “empowerment” and “equality” when we have video evidence of abortion workers dissecting the dead bodies of what are clearly children while haggling over prices for their parts.

Why the fuck are my tax dollars paying for that?

The Basis of Right Action: The Four Noble Truths

‘The Buddha always taught that we should practice the Four Noble Truths:

1. There is suffering.

2. There is an origin of suffering.

3. The end of suffering is possible.

4. There is a path to the end of suffering.

With the practice of mindfulness we are already working with the Four Noble Truths. When we practice mindfulness, we learn to stop and to calm ourselves; then we naturally recognize our suffering and the suffering of others. By looking deeply we see into the causes of suffering and the way to transform our suffering and the suffering of others. When you can transform the war and violence in yourself, then you can truly begin to help others find peace.

Suffering is a part of life. As bodhisattvas in training, we have vowed to use our Mind of Love to alleviate and transform suffering and the roots of suffering, we put into action the First and Second Noble Truths. By looking deeply, we can see the cause of suffering, we can see that it’s possible to end suffering, and we can also see the path that leads to the end of suffering. This puts into action the Third and Fourth Noble Truths.

Taking action to stop suffering is Right Action. Understanding is the foundation of every good action. No action can be called Right Action without Right Understanding. In order to understand, we have to listen, but how do we know we have Right Understanding? If you try to help someone but your actions only worsen the situation, then you do not have Right Understanding. If your government passes an unjust law, it is because your representatives did not have Right Understanding of the problem they were trying to address. All actions - all our personal, political, and humanitarian activities - must be based on a clear understanding of yourself, of your situation, of your own people, of your country.

Deep listening and loving speech are wonderful instruments to help us arrive at the kind of understanding we all need as a basis for appropriate action. You listen deeply for only one purpose - to allow the other person to empty his or her heart. This is already an act of relieving suffering. To stop any suffering, no matter how small, is a great action of peace. The path to end suffering depends on your understanding and your capacity to act without causing harm or further suffering. This is acting with compassion, your best protection.’
