The mind is the world,
One should purify it strenuously.
One assumes the form of that which is one's mind.
This is the eternal secret.
And so the Hell on earth is allowed to continue.Is it just me, or have all the major powers gone very quiet?
yikes! we are arrogant. arrogant arrogant arrogant. someone needs to smite fuck out of us so we can start over again, i really mean it.
debiovery quiet indeed. Apparently the raw materials are going to China in any case so no matter to us eh? It makes me so angry as to bring tears. I think we have to NOT remain quiet.thank you for coming by.
darthI am so absolutely going to steal that phrase, "smite fuck out of us"; bloody brilliant that is!We have to MAKE the politicians listen, and our way is with letters, blogs, and our votes I think.thank you for coming by.
annieindeed.thank you for coming by.
So tragically, words do not suffice. If we truly have convictions about what is going on, then we must show the courage to speak out and denounce.Unfortunately, courage and international geopolitics are contradictory so we can placate China and get enthusiastic about their Olympics.
This is one of the most horrific, yet uplifting news stories of our time. These people have literally put their lives on the line for the Buddhist monks. As with Zimbabwe, no one wants to interfere. Must not be any oil there either.
Just another person going about his daily life, too awful for words...
elleeThe photographs are very powerful aren't they? I assume that's why the junta cut off the Internet and outgoing news.thank you for coming by.
WUASTCTrue enough, it is a reciprocal effort - the monks are putting their lives on the line for the people and the people are responding in kind - it is both uplifting and horrid.The raw materials from Burma are promised to China, poor Zimbabwe is under the radar, and as you say... no oil.thank you for coming by.
ianI am encouraged at how many blogs I have visited the past day that have posted about this catastrophe.If the international community refuses to deny China the Olympics as long as they support the actions in Dafur and Burma - we are all at fault. Thank you for your comments, and thank you for coming by.
Such brave people. Very powerful images indeed. Thanks for sharing them Lady Mac.
It is horrific. The only good news is that Aung San Suu Kyi has not yet been incarcerated in Insane prison
jmbThey are indeed. I am in awe at the courage of these people.thank you for coming by.
wwThat she is still sane is amazing in itself isn't it? Fortunately the junta does not dare make her a martyer - yet.thank you for coming by.
I'm not encouraged by the responses I'm seeing from the U.N. and from other nations.I wrote a piece about it for a newspaper here, but I don't know what difference it will make. Especially when no foreign journalists can get into the country and no native journalists can get their stories out.
