Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

I have no doubt Snowden is brave; both independent in thought and action! He knows the government has become 'big brother'. It takes incredible courage to do as he has. Most people wouldn't have the 'knowledge' or the nerve. A real maverick! I hope one of the South American countries help him out so he's not trapped in transit for an indefinite period. I guess they're trying to break him!

As a sidebar I find myself wondering , and not for the first time , if some citizens of the USA realise how this kind of hysterical over -reaction makes them appear in the eyes of the rest of the world.

One should not kill any living being, nor cause it to be killed, nor should one incite any other to kill. Do never injure any being, whether strong or weak, in this entire universe!

Speaking about the plane situation, I must say that I feel ashame for my government (portuguese) actions. Its natural to let a presidential plane to land on amy countrys, unless such countrys dont have any diplomatic relationship.

The Venezualan and Bolivian people said many bad things about portuguese government; if they stick just to the government (I hope they dont think the same about the people), I completly agree with them. Its a disrespect to do such act, forbid a president to land on a friendly country. Portugal its just a puppet in the hands of USA gov. Portugal should start to show respect for itself: If I was in the lead of my country I would demand respect and explanations from Obama! Spying all the citizens in the world? What the hell do they want? Why are they always thinking that they are in control of the world? As a citizen I am very concerned about my privacy! I dont have nothing to fear or to hide from USA gov, but I dont have nothing to show them either! My life is my life, I have the supreme Right to my freedom and privacy!

Edward Snowden deserves my consideration. He is a hero for me!
