"There is no point in telling people about Jesus when they are starving."
Teach them to fish
how to fish for themselves.
The fishermen had been in the water all day
but they didn't catch any fish.
There's no fish in the water, man.
He said, "Cast your nets into the deep."
They pulled up so many fish it could sink the boat!
Later everyone was together and hungry.
There were only a few fish to eat- not enough.
But he multiplied the fish. And everyone was fed.
"I will make you a fisher, man!"

At the base of Mt Kailas are two lakes, one shaped like the Sun
(Manasarovar) and symbolic of when the mind is still, a higher awareness, enlightened inner consciousness is reflected.
The other is shaped like the crescent Moon. The crescent lake, (Rakastal) partakes of the dark forces; being under the sway of the lower desires and impulses.

The deeper we go, the more we feel, so eat 'those' fish at every meal!

Cool song, awesome post in many ways, Man!

Great post.

I love that quote by Ma T. I would go one step further and say that it is CRUEL to tell people about Jesus when they are starving. It's like blaming them for being starving.

Can you say, "The Secret"?

haha! Yeah maybe it should have been kept a secret! ;)
