I sat down today to check the traffic on my blog at WORDPRESS.COM They must have a computer SNAFU. WORDPRESS.COM has a unsolicited “pop up” that will not let me write ANYTHING unless I answer their question, which is:
“Who Do I Envy ?”. So , here it is.
Very Strange Indeed ! Nothing like this has ever happened before. So I thought about it for a long time…. I do not envy “money and toys”. I already have more than I ever dreamed. I have a wonderful wife, a wonderful daughter and granddaughter and other family and friends. I have a new life and I am alive.
I do envy everyone in our world that is oblivious to all the pain and suffering that we inflict upon each other in our world. I envy people that are capable of seperating themselves from all the pain and suffering that we all witness in this world. I do not know how to achieve that goal. I have tried and failed and I suspect that most of us have failed that test. I respect the goal of Buddhism to achieve “Oblivion” but I do not have a road map to that address. I suppose that I only envy the men and women that have led their lives serving others in so many ways and have passed away surrounded by friends and family and loved ones with smiles on their faces and a clear conscience. I do envy the innocense of children. ( Our gifts to the future ). We all have baggage. When I catch the train , I hope and pray that I will be allowed leave my baggage behind.
