Thoughts


From, The Law - Frederic Bastiat

When Plunder Becomes A Way Of Life For A Group Of Men Living Together
Within A Society, They Create For Themselves, In the Course Of Time,
A Legal System That Authorizes Such Plunder And A Moral Code That
Glorifies It.

From the Lectures of Michio Kushi

History is an open secret to the one who understands the importance of
food and the way in which it transforms and creates man after its fashion.

Mans customs, societies, wars, the pattern of his evolution, the changes
in his thought, and the possibilities of his future, are impossible to
understand without this simple key.

Most Historians, after a lifetime of searching for cycles of repetition,
intellectual currents, and patterns of behavior, either conclude that
history is meaningless or develop an assertion of Blind Faith that
transcends their " Learned Knowledge ".

Neither Approach Is Necessary; Every Aspect of the Past, and Every Aspect
of the Present, Can Be Easily Understood By a Study of Mans Eating Habits.

Once This Is Understood, Man Will Be Able To Fashion The Future He
Wishes, And To Become Whatever He Wants To Be!!

The Words of Mr. Norman Cousins

Death Is Not The Greatest Loss In Life. The Greatest Loss Is What Dies

From Columbus and Other Cannibals - J.D. Forbes

" Civilization Does Not Mean Electric Lights, It Does Not Mean Producing
Atomic Bombs, Either. Civilization Means Not Killing People.

From the Tao Te Ching

Stop trying to control. Let go of fixed plans and concepts,
and the world will govern itself.
The more prohibitions you have, the less virtuous people will be.
The more weapons you have, the less secure people will be.
The more subsidies you have, the less self-reliant people will be.
Let go of the law, and people become honest.
Let go of economics, and people become prosperous.
Let go of religion, and people become serene.
Let go of all desire for the common good,
and the good becomes as common as grass.

The Book of Lieh-tzu

Your own body is not your possession....It is the shape lent to you by heaven and earth. Your life is not your possession; it is harmony between your forces, granted for a time by heaven and earth. Your nature and destiny are not your possessions; they are the course laid down for you by heaven and earth. Your children and grandchildren are not your possessions; heaven and earth lend them to you to cast off from your body as an insect sheds its skin. Therefore you travel without knowing where you go, stay without knowing what you cling to, are fed without knowing how. You are the breath of heaven and earth which goes to and fro; how can you ever possess it?
