Farmer's Donkey

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!


Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happens.

3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less from people but more from God.

Why We Are Agitated By Belief

Talk: J Krishnamurti

    Your religion, your belief in God, is an escape from actuality, and therefore it is no religion at all. The rich man who accumulates money through cruelty, dishonesty and cunning exploitation believes in God; and you also believe in God, you also are cunning, cruel, suspicious and envious... Because you collect sacred books and symbols of God, does that indicate that you are a religious person?
    Religion is not escape from the fact; religion is the understanding of the fact of what you are in your everyday relationships;
religion is the manner of your speech, the way you talk, the way you address your servants, the way you treat your family and neighbours. As long as you do not understand your relationship with your neighbour, society and family, there must be confusion; and the mind that is confused will only create more confusion, problems and conflict.
    A mind that escapes from the
actual shall never find God; a mind that is agitated by belief shall not know truth. But the mind that understands its relationship with property, people and ideas, the mind which no longer struggles with the problems which relationship creates, and for which the solution is not withdrawal but the understanding of love – such a mind alone can understand reality.
    We realise that life is ugly, painful, sorrowful; we want some kind of theory or doctrine which will explain all this, and so we are caught in explanation, words, theories, and gradually, beliefs become deeply rooted and unshakable because behind those beliefs and dogmas, there is the constant fear of the
unknown. But we never look at that fear; we turn away from it. The stronger the beliefs, the stronger the dogmas. Beliefs divide people. Each dogma, each belief has a series of rituals and compulsions which bind and separate man. So, we start with an inquiry to find out what is true, what the significance is of this misery, struggle and pain; and we are soon caught up in beliefs, rituals and theories.
    Belief is corruption because behind belief and morality lurks the mind, the self growing big, powerful and strong. We consider belief in God, the belief in something, as religion; that to believe is to be religious. If you do not believe,
you will be considered an atheist; you will be condemned by society.
    One society will condemn those who believe in God, and another society will condemn those who do not. They are both the same. So, reli
gion becomes a matter of belief and belief acts and has a corresponding influence on the mind; the mind then can never be free. But it is only in freedom that you can find out what is true, what is God, not through any belief, because your very belief projects what you think ought to be God, what you think ought to be true…
    We are confused, and we think that through belief we shall clear the confusion; that is, belief is superimposed on the confusion, and we hope that confusion will thereby be cleared away. But belief is merely an escape from the fact of confusion; it does not help us to face and to understand the fact but to run away from the confusion in which we are… Belief only acts as a screen between ourselves and our problems. So, religion, which is organised belief, becomes a means of escape from what is, from the fact of confusion

When a Fast Fails: Lessons From Gandhi

After Anna Hazare went on a fast unto death, this non-violent means of protest has once again gained a lot of traction in India – sometimes successful, sometimes not. In the India Ink blog, Samanth Subramanian traces how even Mahatma Gandhi’s fasts at times resulted in failure, and his thoughts on how to use them.

Even Mohandas K. Gandhi, the architect of the Indian obsession with the hunger strike, did not always succeed in his fasts — although success was, admittedly, measured by Mr. Gandhi’s own standards.
He considered, for instance, a 1918 fast in Ahmedabad a moral failure. He had stopped eating in solidarity with striking mill workers, and three days into his fast, the factory owners agreed to raise worker wages by 35 percent.
But Mr. Gandhi was unhappy: some of the workers had contemplated a suspension of the strike in favor of violence. During the strike, he had exhorted them to stick to the pacifist path, reminding them that they had “their hands, their courage, and their fear of God.” After the fast, he would regretfully say of the workers: “They have not won their masters’ hearts, as they were not innocent in thought. They were only non-violent in deed.”
Mr. Gandhi could be ruthless about the conduct of his hunger protests. On Sept. 20, 1932, on the grounds of Pune’s Yerawada Prison, he started a fast to protest the notion of creating a separate electorate for Hindu Dalits, because he feared that the move would fracture Hindu society. His health deteriorated rapidly.
B. R. Ambedkar, who had advocated strongly for this electoral structure, had initially called the fast a stunt, but as Mr. Gandhi grew sicker, Mr. Ambedkar came under immense pressure to negotiate. The Poona Pact was born out of compromises that Mr. Ambedkar and Mr. Gandhi reached on Sept. 24.
Mr. Ambedkar would insist on portraying the pact as a failure for Mr. Gandhi. In a book titled “What Congress and Gandhi have done to the Untouchables,” Mr. Ambedkar would write: “When the fast failed and Mr. Gandhi was obliged to sign a pact … which conceded the political demands of the Untouchables … he took his revenge by letting the Congress employ foul electioneering tactics to make their political rights of no avail.”
Mr. Gandhi himself identified a 1939 fast in Rajkot as an unsuccessful, “tainted” one. The ruler of the princely state of Rajkot had revoked a set of political reforms, and when Mr. Gandhi’s fast did not produce the change he wanted, he asked the viceroy to intervene. “There can be no room for selfishness, anger, lack of faith, or impatience in a pure fast,” he wrote in Harijan. “It is no exaggeration to admit that all these defects crept into my Rajkot fast … I had in me the selfish desire for the realization of the fruits of my labor. If there had been no anger in me, I would not have looked to the Viceroy for assistance.” He left Rajkot “empty-handed, with body shattered and hope cremated.”
In Harijan in 1940, as per his custom, Mr. Gandhi posed himself questions and answered them. In one such query about the ethics of fasting, he argued that a fast “out of love” might appeal to the senses of a friend going astray. “There is a possible risk [that] he would be tempted to go back to his old ways,” Mr. Gandhi wrote. “But then I can fast again. Ultimately the increasing influence of my love will either convert the friend to the extent of weaning him completely from his evil ways, or repeated fasts may lose their novelty, blunt his mind, and make it impervious to my fasting.”

Kapitan DIWALWAL, City of the Cursed Gold

Lost in the mountains of Mindanao, the rebellious province of the South Philippines, DIWALWAL is an illegal gold rush town ruled by the guns and also, according to the highly respected Blacksmith Institute, one the top twenty actual worst ecological disasters of the planet.

On top of a mountain of gold surrounded by jungles roamed by tree active guerrillas, two Muslims and one communist, Franco Tito is fighting, corrupt politicians and unscrupulous multinationals, to protect the rights of the 40,000 small scale miners who are living in this infernal universe.

What seems to be at first a local political conflict happen to be a social, economical and sanitary international emergency which's consequences are accumulating in the environment and oceans for eventually creeping back, through the food chain, in everybody's plate everywhere.
