Re: Guess who said this?

Perhaps one of the Brahma-viharas led to the original post.

Maybe eventually one of the mods will delete it because after all cleanliness is next to godliness.

From the context of Buddhism, judgment starts with discernment, discernment is a necessary quality to have, but combine discernment with ignorance, and you have suffering.

We care because about judgmental people because it must be very painful for people to be judgmental.

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

Here's an interesting one. Suicide rate versus homicide rate. https://tinyurl.com/yao68a27 I can't really say we in the US are performing as well as we should be on this graph.

How is that graph relevant to this discussion?
Life expectancy is related to the murder rate and has been improving worldwide for the last 200 years.

If it is not relevant, then feel free to ignore.

Now dreams are sometimes the cause of future occurrences; for instance, when a person's mind becomes...
