In today’s news, Qatar Charity provides impoverished Pakistani citizens with free health care services, Brazil’s Amazon experiences severe heat, drought, wildfires, and air pollution, abandoned coal mines utilized in United Kingdom to provide clean geothermal energy to hundreds of homes, haptic technology helps deaf and hard of hearing people to appreciate music in Australia, refugee from Ukraine (Ureign) saves driver whose car went underwater in United States, Korean nun inspiring chefs across globe with vegan temple food, and Canadian study concludes those living with animal-people companions are more positive towards others.
I have a helpful tip for people with animal-people companions. When it gets cooler, paying attention to see if there are any drafts close to where your animal friends are sleeping is very beneficial, because this can cause them discomfort. Adjusting their bedding or moving the location of their bedding is better for them, so they aren’t laying in a draft. With cat- and dog-persons, to stay inside when it’s cold outside is preferable, because they are prone to frostbite and hypothermia similar to humans. Certain dog-individual types, such as Huskies with longer hair and thicker coats, are more accustomed to colder climates and are therefore more tolerant of them. However, no animal-resident should be left outside for lengthy periods of time in below-freezing weather. Be warm this winter, friends!
Let’s pop that joke of the day album into the guffaw player and enjoy. This one’s called “Productive Argument.”
A man saw his friend, Sullivan, for the first time after Sullivan’s marriage. His face looked very cheerful. He immediately asked:
“Why do you look so happy?”
“Ah! My wife and I just had an argument with our neighbor.”
“But why are you so happy about arguing with the neighbor?”
“Well, you know, it's been a long time since my wife and I were on the same side!”
And now we have a heartline from Jia-Qing in China:
Most Beloved God-Master, Tim Qo Tu, and the most respected Supreme Master TV team, I can’t express enough how grateful I am to watch Supreme Master TV programs. When I watched the gospel of God-Master broadcasted on Supreme Master TV on August 7, I felt incomparably blissful, and all I wanted to do at that moment was go to the most remote cave to meditate. God-Master’s conversation with the king of the zealous demons let us perceive once more the unparalleled Love Power: Even the zealous demons who had been against God-Master were also influenced by God-Master and stopped making trouble. If humans can stop killing, the world would change greatly for the better!
For a period of time, earthquakes, torrential rains, floods, all this extreme weather has been occurring around us, and people affected by the disasters are struggling painfully. People are asking, “This has rarely happened in history. What’s wrong?” People are commenting about global warming, but seeing that it’s similar everywhere around the world, the confusion in people’s minds seems to calm down. However, people rarely mention: EACH YEAR 700 MILLION PIG-PEOPLE ARE SLAUGHTERED (in China)! It is something that has never happened before in the history of this country, which does not yet include the cattle-, sheep-, chicken-, fish-, and shrimp-people that have been killed just to satisfy people’s appetites… In history, even the butchers themselves could not eat that much pig-people meat in one year! Now, the huge amount of fresh blood shows that people are more vicious than the butchers of the past.
Oh, God, if You punish us, we really deserve it. It’s just that, while there’s still a ray of hope, please tell us how to wake up those still in slumber to perceive and understand that it’s a brutal, absolutely unnecessary, meaningless war against the great animal-people kingdom! We are all paying bitter prices for such a stupid war, with animal-people struggling and people crying. When will the time come when people with a butcher’s knife in their hand are able to see clearly and recognize the cause and effect between the slaughtering of animal-people and disasters, natural as well as manmade?
History has it that Patriarch Bodhidharma, being misunderstood, His two front teeth were knocked out by others, leaving His mouth full of blood. Patriarch Bodhidharma thought, “If I spit the blood on the ground and have my teeth fall onto the ground, it’d cause three years of severe drought.” The evil karma of hurting an enlightened Saint is very deep and heavy, and for the sake of people then, Patriarch Bodhidharma swallowed His broken teeth and blood to avoid the disaster.
It reminds me that all these years, for the sake of loving and protecting sentient beings, God-Master has undergone endless terrible sufferings; in order to reduce the heavy karma of sentient beings, She is still praying to God, “If only it can be of help, please give me more suffering.” Oh, the world has owed God-Master far too much. However, how many people would come forward, respectfully kneel down, and say to Master, “Greatest King of Kings of Kings, we’re grateful for Your incomparable Grace bringing us light, truth, and hope, giving us real beauty and freedom…” I sincerely thank God-Master! Jia-Qing from China
Insightful Jia-Qing, Receiving your heartline, we ask ourselves how we could ever make the sacrifices we see our Beloved Master making each moment of each day. We shed tears in gratitude for the God Power Master wields in all domains, Her Almighty Love. Thank you for sharing your sentiments with us. May you and fair-minded China be forever protected and safe in Heaven’s radiance. In Cosmic beauty, Supreme Master TV team
P.S. Master kindly replies to you with these truths: “Wise Jia-Qing, it is true that the karmic law is just, and retribution serves to motivate noble changes in beings as they become awakened to their wrongdoings. It is equally true, and simple, that once enlightened to the carnage inflicted daily upon our most innocent and loving animal-people, sincere repentance and change to a vegan diet will liberate that soul. For this we must be eternally grateful to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas who have selflessly suffered to save life on Earth. May the fortunate Chinese people choose the Divine path of compassion always. Love you!”
