Do you think the Dalai Lama walks around with a gun on his hip?

I'm not sure. There are certainly many who want him dead. In any case he has stated his position on the matter.

Hi,
I can only share my personal experiences with guns. I was in the army for a short while. I didn't mind carrying a gun. But, when I was handed bullets for the gun, I stalled. To me, guns don't kill people, bullets do. I just simply could not and would not touch a bullet. That's where I drew the line.
I am suggesting for you to go to a shooting range and fire a gun for yourself. Just to see how it makes you feel to fire one. Just to feel the power of life and death in your personal hand.
And then purchase a gun and carry it on you, loaded. See how that feels. As long as you don't carry one you'll not know if you are able to do so.
Be well.
Chris K.

    I know as an awakened being that you will always be in the right place at the right time. I have personally experienced what my father used to call dumbfounding. When I can bring my power up people who are of a lower vibration are dumbfounded. There brains sort of short circuit for a period of time. It is not something that I can do all of the time, but I have been shown that it is possible. My father also told me that while in a fully awakened state that nothing can harm you. We can be so connected to the universe that we are always in the right place at the right time.

     Having said that, I have to also say that I can not bring these states of awareness on at will at this time in my life. And being spiritual to me does not mean that I have to also be stupid. Some times you just can not fix stupid in someone else either, so protecting yourself and your family is OK in my neck of the woods. There are consequences to all actions.

     As long as we are still in duality consciousness we will always have drama and conflict. I look forward to turning my swords into plowshares, but today is not that day. And if you want to be dumb in my neck of the woods, you had better be tough.

Pointing2, I respect your position. Owning a gun can change the way a person thinks. I think it's great that you are certain of where you stand. The truth is I'm still a bit conflicted on the matter. Guns may not kill people by themselves, but they sure do make it a lot easier to do. I've decided to purchase one, and I will take all the classes and training to gain a concealed weapons permit. Considering the way our society has become I've decided that I feel safer with one than without one. Who knows? Maybe I'll get to the firing range an decide that it's not for me. I guess I'll see.

Are you enlightened?

Interesting, maybe you could send some positive energy my way?

Yea, ACIM tells us it's all about the guilt that our actions and thoughts generate in us. The guilt gets projected and manifests in our lives, and so Karma is really something we do to ourselves. That's good news because it puts us at the cause rather than the effect, but it also reminds me just how out of touch I am with my mind. Apparently nothing happens in our life that we did not choose on some level.

As long as we are still in duality consciousness we will always have drama and conflict. I look forward to turning my swords into plowshares, but today is not that day. And if you want to be dumb in my neck of the woods, you had better be tough.

The day will come when the lion will lay with the lamb and all conflict will be healed. As humans we naturally try to avoid suffering as much as possible. Eventually people will realize that doing bad only hurts themselves in the long run. My only hope is that I'm never put in a situation where I would use a gun.

   Sorry I was trying to do a quote thing in blue. I have had taste of being fully awakened in my years, but I have not cleared enough out at this time to hold that state of awareness. I am not sure that I could function in everyday life with that awareness. Not to mention the reactions of people who come close to you. Some fall to the floor in ecstasy while some others have their fears come up and they run off screaming. A lot of people play around with these words when they have no clue. It is like LOVE we think that we know something about it when we do not. Words can not describe what can only be known threw experience.

I do believe in gun ownership, but i think anyone who wants a gun must be toughly checked out first, just to make sure no nut is going to own a gun, I was shot once by someone along the highway out of town while driving my car, I still remember lying in my car with a massive hole in my leg, all I could think of is that person coming to shot me again, but thankfully he didn't, if i had a gun with me and things did turn nasty, at least I would have a chance of protecting myself......but yea, its a hard one alright.

Were you not shooting kangaroos when this occurred ?

Well howdee psychoslice, your old friend here, of course I'm using my Shawnee name Atehequa.

Anyway back to the subject. I pay no more mind to my few hunting rifles than I do my fishing rods. One will put venison on my table while the other will provide me with fresh fish. I'm not really the type who gets all dreamy-eyed over a glock or assault rifle as if it they were sweethearts like some of these buffoons.

I wonder who you are ??.......I was shot while my friends and I were coming home from a swimming hole. I'm glad your not in love with your guns, I think a gun can give some a feeling of power, or compensate for something between their legs lol.

Odd, the last time we talked I could of swore you said something about shooting kangaroos when you were shot. Perhaps I am mistaken.

How's the artwork going ? Hopefully some envious Yengeese has not screwed around with your shared works as what happened to mine over at that other place I once belonged to.

A gun to me is naught but a tool like my 50cal. Pennsylvania black powder rifle and recurve bow which put venison in our freezer so as to have meat on the table for awhile. Hunting is not only necessary, but very spiritual for us indigenous people. Too bad that was beyond the understanding of some of those Yengeese moonbats over at that other place.

Anyway, it is good we can make talk somewhere else, pyschoslice.

Sad.

You're a good artist and probably can do better than spiritualforums.com.
