Four injured in iPad fight at Apple store

Postby Ben » Sun May 08, 2011 12:41 pm

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

I was once waiting in queue to board a flight to Guangzhou via HK, and we all have our boarding cards and all ... but I am not kidding that the the mainland chinese passengers were all elbowing themselves trying to be the first to board the aircraft!! It's madness.... :rolleye:
All beings like yourself are responsible for their own actions. Suffering or happiness is created through one's relationship to experience, not by experience itself. Although I wish only the best for you, I know that your happiness or unhappiness depends on your actions, not on my wishes for you.
May you not be caught in reactivity.

Another example how powerful and damaging craving can get.

Chinese people are very pushy. Maybe Apple can come up with a way of making them stand in line--that would be a serious invention. Good luck, Steve.

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -

That's a drag, isn't it, BlackBird?
Pushing and shoving seems to be a way of life in some parts of Asia. I find it very stressful. And depressing.
