Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

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

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

I'am sorry, i will use strong words, if they are to strong, please delete it.

Life is a virus.

Virus existance have one condition, one action and one aim :
- good environement
- consumption
- reproduction

Virus attack a cell, comsom it until destruction, and serch for nother cell.
Humanity have the same mouvement: environement, consomption, reproduction
Buddha preach an another mouvement: homelessness, dana, chastity (very first rule of Parajika)

Psycologicaly, reproduction is a "my self" cloning.
Education of this clone, and punishment when this "clone of my self" don't follow "my self" education, become different to "me", the original version.

All religions who dope family, reproduction followed by borning, agging and death, in my personal opinion are Mara's fruit.
All society who dope consomption, destruction followed by greed, hatred and delusion, in my personal opinion are Mara's fruit.

@ Dawn, I think you may have watched the Matrix one too many times.
