PEACE TO NIGERIANS IN 2011
The awakening of the patriotic spirit of concernedNigerians; young, old, affluent anddestitute has been accelerated by the uncontrollable greed and corruption ofthe likes of Obasanjo, Babangida, Tinubu, Akingbola, Cecilia Ibru and theircohorts. These are people who continueto plunder the populace, even aftertheir scandalous pillaging has more than satiated their needs.
To continue to further "chop" like this can onlylead to one inevitable outcome: vomiting of the excess"food". Thisbizarre malady can no longer beexplained on the grounds that it is a desire to fulfil a need or to drive awaypoverty. It has become akin to an eating disorder triggered by ? a mental illness.It is similar to the psycho-neurotic disease called bulimia nervosa, in whichthe patient gorges on food till he/she becomes nauseous and vomits the whole imbibed stuff out of his system.Rather than thrive and be nourished bythe alimentation, he shrivels and rots till he eventually dies.
Nigerians are no longer afraid to condemn thesevain-glorious, shameless nonentities, nor to verbally insult them, to theirfaces, in public places or on the pages of newspapers. They know that they darenot sue for slander, because, for starters, they cannot account for theirwealth and what is worse, the Inland Revenue or Tax authorities are waitng forjust an opportunity like this.
As we are constantly rightly reminded of the rule ofequity: "Those who come to equitymust come with clean hands"
I am four-square behind these Nigerians and urge them to continue to"GET INVOLVED, MAKE US INTO A TEAM, WE ARE ONE"
"I honour the place in you, in which the entireUniverse dwells,
I honour the place in you, which is of love, of light oftruth and of peace,
When you are in the place in you, and I am in the place inme,
WE ARE ONE"
Just as Buddha prayed in deep meditation,
one of Buddha's students approached him and asked:
Are you the messiah ?
No! he said.
Why then, are you a Hero ?
No! Hereplied again,
Are you a Teacher?
Exasperated, the student asked...then who are You?
I AM AWAKE !!!
No matterwhere you read it,
No matter whosaid it,
No matter, ifI said it,
Unless it agrees with your own reasoning, and you own commonsense,
First rely on the spirit and meanings of the teachings
NOT THE WORDS
Second, rely on the teachings
NOT THE TEACHER
Third, rely on real wisdom, NOT SUPERFICIAL INTERPRETATIONS
And fourth, rely on the essence of your pure wisdom mind
NOT ON JUDGEMENTAL INTERPRETATIONS
If you know what I know about the Power of giving, you willnot let one minute pass, without you sharing it in some way
Thousands of candles can be lit from one candle, and thelight of the candle will not be shortened,
Happiness never decreases by it being shared
Neither fire nor wind,
Neither birth nor death
Can erase our good deeds
The POWER of the UNIVERSE
within YOU." ...Buddha
