IS GIVING TO THE POOR AN ACT OF PIETY?
1) A well ordered society should have no beggars.
2) If the people heed the advice of the wise and seek to maximize their efficiency, minimize waste, refrain from damaging inbred marital unions, reduce population by procreating less and adopt sustainable practices the number of poor is bound to come down by a huge percentage.
3) It is not one's moral duty to fund the poor since each one's destiny is shaped by his own karma and by the decisions he makes in life.
4) Sensible inputs that serve to help deserving people walk upright are welcome but habitually giving away money/material resources out of sentimental weakness or egoism to lazy persons and to self-made beggars is a waste and will only perpetuate the vicious cycle of poverty.
5) On the one hand, where giving dole is concerned, do as you please but if you give to the poor it does not generate positive karma because charity is rarely disinterested and usually it promotes laziness on the part of the receivers of the help and in the process it does not provide the solution to dissolving poverty and on the other hand if one does not give to the poor it does not generate negative karma provided one decides not to be a part of the blind philanthropic mechanism of supporting inefficiency, laziness and the vicious cycle of poverty.
6) Giving away to the poor is not gonna eradicate the root causes of poverty and we see this fact personified in the growing number of poor everywhere in the world despite colossal amounts of money being given away in charity.

ONLY THE SEER CAN BE TRULY COMPASSIONATE

1) Compassion should not be confused with weak sentimentality which passes off as compassion.

2) Only a person with sufficient direct experience of the actual play of the gross and subtle forces that is based on the cosmic causation as manifested through external nature and individual being can know how to correctly react in any given circumstance by perceiving what exactly needs to be done as of then.

3) Such a person, the seer, would know the true state of evolution of consciousness of the individuals he meets and he would know how best to help the concerned person without breaking any of the critical causal laws that if violated would bring more misery than illumination in the life of the person.

TRUE KNOWLEDGE & FALSEHOOD

1) The first glimmer of the unified state that's free of division, contradictions and the play of the opposites commences from the supramental plane which is also called the plane of the truth-consciousness.

2) In the unified state of the supramental consciousness with its intrinsic energy field that rises beyond all dualisms, the true state of an object in its essence can be known.

3) Below the supermind, the dualism or the symmetry-break from the unified state gradually increases and ends in falsehood as the consciousness with its innate energy wave condenses into matter (concentrated energy).

4) Science is a study of surface phenomenon based on the falsehood of appearances.

5) What appears true to the superficial mind of the scientist on the plane of gross matter conceals a greater reality that keeps increasing in intensity as one scales the cosmic hierarchy and if the awakened psychic can merge with say even the higher mind plane it sees that what science considers a fact is a mere surface effect of deeper causes that lie far beyond the reach of science. For example, the ignorant man of science will, using mathematical models and deductive experimental results, tell you that a proton is positively charged and is thought to be extremely stable for many cycles and that it is thus a building block of matter. OTOH, the yogi takes a look at the energy field or merges with it and sees that the various particles and waves that science studies are simply surface effects or superficial formations of condensed subtler states of energy and that the frequency of vibration of the energy field that manifests as the proton has its origin on higher frequency planes like the subtle physical or the vital and that by an act of self-manifestation the particular line of energy with its concomitant consciousness has been reduced in rate of vibration thus making it correspond to the well-known frequencies of energy/matter that science studies and manipulates. Similarly, the seer will trace the origin of the functioning of an organ or the emergence of a disease condition of body, emotion or mind to its subtle cause which is usually found in such cases on the physico-vital plane (that has its specific frequency of vibration) that permeates the being.

LET THE POOR DIE

1) I often give away a lot of money to the needy out of sentimental weakness. But, my inner mind usually says - "Let the poor suffer and die of hunger. Don't care. Each one is the architect of his/her own destiny. One should walk upright with minimal inputs from others. This is called being a responsible person who walks as far as it is possible in tune with the laws that support growth. Becoming a burden on others is not cool."

2) In a way, I am quite cruel - if once I turn away from a person, I will never respond to him even if he pleads with me to save him. However, I am pretty tolerant and give a person dozens of chances before I break ties with him. Usually, those who I walk away from suffer all the more more after I part ways with them even if they happen to be wealthy.

``I wish to be left alone,'' said Scrooge.``Since you ask me what I wish, gentlemen, that is my answer. I don't make merry myself at Christmas and I can't afford to make idle people merry. I help to support the establishments I have mentioned: they cost enough: and those who are badly off must go there.''

``Many can't go there; and many would rather die.''

``If they would rather die,'' said Scrooge,``they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population."

HARD TASK MASTER

Where money is concerned, I am very particular about the finest details in account keeping and will not spare anyone cheating me or misplacing the smallest amount.

I want persons to be alert, level-headed and responsible when handling money or material objects.

If a servant breaks an expensive vase or an exquisite crystal piece or if she stains the rare carpets, I overlook it if it is a genuine accident but give the maid a polite talk about being alert and avoiding negligence at all costs.

To me, negligence is the worst form of ill-will.

If the incident is due to deliberate rashness then all hell may break lose as it has happened on a few occasions in the past and in a cold voice I ask the servant to leave the apartment immediately and not to show up for work until I call her back. If any of the costly cars are damaged due to rash driving, the driver may lose his job. If it is a genuine accident, then it's ok. Another thing I can't tolerate is absenteeism - if a servant wishes to take an extra day or 2 off due to family ceremonies or illness aside from the usual 4 holidays per month that they are entitled to, I don't mind since there are other servants to do the work for me and besides I understand that they too at times feel the need to relax with family and get away from the monotony of work but if the staying away from work is due to shirking of responsibility then I am very firm and do not tolerate such lax behavior and issue a stern warning to the person concerned.

I treat my servants very well and pay them much more than the current market rates in elite South Mumbai households and always make it a point to gift them with high quality clothes and substantial cash bonuses. I have taught them how to handle things in and around the house, in what tone to speak, how to walk/sit with poise or without slouching, how to maintain presence of mind, how to present a dignified appearance, how to make surveys and maintain domestic stocks, how to clean, how to dress neatly, how to maintain personal hygiene, how to serve/arrange/store/inquire and so on.

I want everything to be in its proper place and don't like clutter or dumping things in haphazard fashion or loud talk and moreover I can't stand lack of hygiene - if any of the servants touch their nose or hair in my presence I ask them to wash their hands and then come before me and when they enter the kitchen they have to wear hairnets to avoid lose hair from falling. The floors of the entire apartment are cleaned twice a day and linen is changed daily or sometimes twice a day.

I am a stickler for perfectionism and remember all my student days when I worked my ass off and never ever took my studies lightly.

When it comes to charity, I give away a lot but when it comes to work/professionalism, I am a very hard task master and set extremely high standards for myself and for those I deal with or for those who work for me. I don't tolerate shoddiness or tardiness or negligence.

In September of 2007, I was at Walmart using the pay phone, I noticed this piece of paper folded up, I got it, unfolded it, guess what it said, "D**n the Holy Spirit God!!!". You fill in ** with am!. That's bad ain't it?.

Hugh---- I agree that Joel's comment is a racial comment. However, I do not feel HATE in it. His comment is no worse than your recent Negro remark that Maat had to rebuke you for and the truth is your feathers were ruffled when you made it.

Keep in mind that you and Joel are racially the same meaning of the same seed.

Indeed, I am not "pocket size". I know that when you grow up you want to be just like me.
