Met a Buddhist in my travels, he was locked away with the key in the hands of his tormentors,
they called it religious delirium for doing nothing but drawing Buddhist symbols on paper
out of boredom,I don't know what happened to him, I just remember his anger at his very real
situation and his disillusionment with the reality he now faced. As I have accepted my situation
and adapted instantly to be given freedom as reward, he stayed, denying his current reality
until the very end. I don't know what became of him.
My advice to you, don't go down that hard path of realizing that you too are bound by
this world's many laws. He found out the hard way. When your fate lies in another's hands,
I highly doubt it to be illusion.
Wake up from your slumber and awake into reality,
dreaming too much causes cloudiness when it comes to your vision.edit on 2-4-2012 by Radekus because: (no reason given)

Wouldn't it be nice if we all had those magical powers?
Is your need greater than children that get sold into prostitution when they're 9 years old?
Is your need greater than children that starve to death, or get turned into child soldiers, turned into monster killers?
Is your need greater than all the people of the world born into the bondage of poverty with no hope of anything else ever better?
Your needs and wants seem quite selfish, and self centered.
What I need is free and openly available education, housing, and food for everyone on the planet, without reserve, without restriction, without requirement or any precondition.
What I need is for all the petty squabbles and arguments between peoples over land, politics, religion, race, and or economical standing to stop.
What I need is for all of us to get along, with, or without me ever having the satisfaction of seeing it happen.
You should be ashamed of yourself for having such selfish wants when there are so many more people that have greater need and greater want than you will ever know.
