The G code is a set very basic rules that if you follow very carefully, you will have the upper hand on anyone who means to do you harm. it is not so
much a secret, as a humble understanding of the ways of the world. to boast and to flaunt are direct violations of it, so those who frequently speak
in public about the G code do not fully grasp the concept. the G code is a way of life, a survival technique that has endured conflicts since the
arrival of the first slave of the eastern seaboard.
Typically, the usual suspects that come to mind are loqued out OG's and fools starting fires with match sticks, lol.
Nay, this stereotype is a disservice to many. Those of us from the wrong side of the tracks, are often just as spiritual or even moreso then your

Growing up, I often found myself in a rush.I consider myself of an idealistic bent, and have practiced living my life and reaching towards goals.
Unfortunately, I rarely stopped to smell the roses.I confess, I've often been the type to focus more on the next thing I was going to say, rather
then practicing really listening to what others had to share.
My world changed for the better once I remembered & started practicing something my grandfather always reminded me to do.
Simple really. Youngest before oldest, ladies first. In mixed company, putting my elders first, unless given the opportunity or asked.I find this very
I have built my own personal CNC machine for hobby machinist use and I have learned G-code for that. I am a programmer by day and my colleagues and I
never speak of G-code though a few of us do know it. I use the machine to fabricate parts for robotic experiments and all sorts of model railroading
accessories. Anyhow, I am not sure why you have asked to know about this.
Sometimes, individuals may feel like they are walking around with an X on their back.
I feel for them, it's tough not knowing if you're going to open your eyes tomorrow. I usually share with them a bit about this kind of philosophy,
remind them to practice praying, and share a little story from Anthony de Mello...

One of the disconcerting – and delightful – teachings of the Master was:
God is closer to sinners than to saints.
This is how he explained it:
God in heaven holds each person by a string. When you sin you cut the string.
Then God ties it up again, making a knot – and thereby bringing you a little closer to him. Again and again your sins cut the string – and with
each further knot God keeps drawing you closer and closer.
I have missed the mark more times than I can remember, life is about living and learning. The learning curve can appear very steep sometimes, but
others owe it to themselves to realize that each day is a new opportunity to practice doing things better.

Better to listen to a wise man’s rebuke than to listen to the song of fools.
Should the righteous one strike me, it would be an act of loyal love;
Should he reprove me, it would be like oil on my head,
Which my head would never refuse.
My prayer will continue even during their calamities.
The one who listens to life-giving reproof
Is at home among the wise.
For the commandment is a lamp,
And the law is a light, [speaking of God's law, as described in the Bible]
And the reproofs of discipline are the way to life.
Do not reprove a ridiculer, or he will hate you.
Reprove a wise person, and he will love you.
Listen to counsel and accept discipline,
In order to become wise in your future.
“Speech is silver, silence is golden.” So states an old proverb said to be of Oriental origin. According to Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and
Fable, its Hebrew equivalent is: “If a word be worth one shekel, silence is worth two.” And wise King Solomon of ancient Israel wrote: “For
everything its season, and for every activity under heaven its time . . . a time for silence and a time for speech.”—Eccl. 3:1, 7, The New
Silence is a sign of respect or honor. Even in private one-on-one conversations, being a good listener is a mark of respect.
Evidence of Discretion and Discernment
The Bible states: “The one keeping his lips in check is acting discreetly.” “The man of broad discernment is one that keeps silent.” (Prov.
10:19; 11:12) Consider how beautifully Jesus manifested discretion and discernment by keeping silent. Upon discerning that speaking in the hostile
environment generated by his enemies would serve no useful purpose, “Jesus kept silent.” (Matt. 26:63) Later, when on trial before Pilate, Jesus
“made no answer.” He discreetly chose to let his public record speak for itself.—Matt. 27:11-14.
We too are wise to keep our lips in check, particularly when we are provoked. “He that is slow to anger is abundant in discernment,” says a
proverb, “but one that is impatient is exalting foolishness.” (Prov. 14:29) A hasty oral response in a trying situation can result in rash speech
that is later regretted. Under such circumstances, our words may appear foolish, and our peace of mind may suffer as a result.
Although silence carries no words, it can have a positive effect. Concerning one of his contemporaries, the 19th-century English writer Sydney Smith
wrote: “He has occasional flashes of silence, that make his conversation perfectly delightful.” Indeed, everyday conversation between two friends
should be two-way communication. A good conversationalist must be a good listener.
“In the abundance of words there does not fail to be transgression,” warned Solomon, “but the one keeping his lips in check is acting
discreetly.” (Prov. 10:19) Hence, the fewer the words spoken, the less the chance of committing an indiscretion. In fact, “even anyone foolish,
when keeping silent, will be regarded as wise; anyone closing up his own lips, as having understanding.” (Prov. 17:28)
Funny, I just used that song in another thread, then I read your comment about listening.
