Well my friend, I see we finally understand each other.. HOW DA. I'm glad you recognize that we are allies and not enemies. Though we come from different parts of this world, from different languages and cultural backgrounds, still we share the same hope and the same dream. That all men will in the end be free to live their own lives according to their own lights and understandings.

There is a right way and a wrong way for everything and if we expect to see a change in the way of men we must begin with ourselves . Our Ancients taught us that the greatest wisdom and the greatest virtue is KINDNESS. We cannot enlighten another by killing him, but only by teaching him to walk upon the true path that was known by all of the Ancients and was handed down to us through many different languages and traditions. What was true of the Buddhah was also true of Moses and Jesus and it is also true of every man who seeks enlightenment in the true way.

When I look up at the sky I see the same sun that my ancestor saw and when I hear the wind I hear that same voice. When I walk upon the earth I know my mother, and when I see the face of another man I know my brother. But my brother has forgotten who he is and so I must remind him.
