Really scary stuff

And the Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus, saying: "Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!"

The only thing that is scary is how much it costs taxpayers when law enforcement gets "clever"and "organized" and wastes resources to combat irrelevant nonsense.

That is scary. The noose gets tighter everyday and i dont really see that anything can be done about it. Not unless you want to become a martyr to a lost cause.
"Even if you've read the whole Canon and can remember lots of teachings; even if you can explain them in poignant ways, with lots of people to respect you; even if you build a lot of monastery buildings, or can explain inconstancy, stress, and not-self in the most detailed fashion ... The only thing that serves your own true purpose is release from suffering.

"And you'll be able to gain release from suffering only when you know the one mind."
