    March 7, one of my relatives, sent me message on FaceBook:
    "If you want to awaken all of humanity,
    then awaken all of yourself, if you want
    to eliminate the suffering in the world,
    than eliminate all that is dark and
    negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest
    gift you have to give is that of your own
    self-transformation" - Lao Tzu}
    I think it isn't that simple in modern industrial world.
    It wasn't my experience:
    At age 4, I was setup to offer suffering humanity "Contract with the people",
    But Russia and Moscow sentenced me to death, even contract worked,
    Because I refused be plagiarized. Russian government said in open:
    "You are not Russian, Prussian, or Brit, your God's destiny is our!
    You will not live, except in pain amplifier, "transform" to Pillar Monk!"
    "Jesuits" in our times sound not unlike "Lao Tzu", still are "Jesuits".

And as in the dark all Cats are grey, the Pleasure of corporal Enjoyment with an Old Woman is at least equal, and frequently superior, every Knack being by Practice capable of Improvement."

      If your reply is related in any way to my most above, what you see
      Is not unlike you challenging old sayings, comparing man to a tree:
      "The roots are in the dirt, trunk is covered buy muddy dust, however,
      Washed by rain crone of the tree is shining under sun and breeze."
      So is hiding aging flesh, like the roots, man face looks at Heaven,
      With eyes, mirrors of his soul, celebrating light, you don't believe.

      Sorry, Zelkiiro, I am new here.
      I meant in my last line that Benjamin Franklin probably didn't like light
      (not you), as one would conclude from his quote above.
      Also one wouldn't call him "good", remembering his "Mason trick"
      that lead to conquest of French Canada by British and virtual genocide
      against new Citizens of USA, the wealthy French...
