I’m really working on me
I know it’s hard to accept
I’m really working on me
I know it’s hard to forget
There’s nights that I couldn’t stop
I don’t know when to quit
I’m carelessly exact
You can call this selfish, my self self-benefit

People who carry concealed weapons think and act differently than those who do not, primarily based on the fact that they have the weapon. For instance, would the confrontation between Zimmerman and Martin have even taken place if Zimmerman did not have that gun on that night? Would he even have left his car to pursue Trayvon? Not likely, especially if he were fearing for his own safety. Given the events as related by Zimmerman, it seems that having the weapon emboldened him to act in a manner that created the situation where he felt (reasonably, according to the verdict) at risk of serious bodily harm and then justified by law to use that gun to defend himself. The result – a dead teenager who otherwise would have had an uneventful walk home with nothing out of ordinary having happened.

"Zimmerman with no gun” equals scared racist in his car approaching no one.

A quick PSA, because working in a New Age store I realize a lot of people don’t know this.  Keep in mind this is the simple version.

The fella on the left-hand side, that’s Gautama Buddha, the Buddha, the central figure in Buddhism.  Note that he is not considered a god, but a teacher and spiritual leader, the first to attain Enlightenment in his era.  Note also how thin he is.  This is because the Buddha fasted a lot.  He was born Siddhartha Gautama.  Buddha is a title, and not actually his name.

The fella on the right-hand side is not Buddha.  This is a common misconception in the West.  That is Hotai (or Budai or Hotei depending on the language), a Buddhist monk from China and folkloric hero.  Hotai is thought by many to be a Buddha, but he is not the Buddha.  Unlike Buddha, Hotai actually is revered as a god in Chinese folklore, although not in Buddhist practice.

This post is based on things I’ve been taught by my Buddhist coworker but if I forgot or mixed up something important and you are Buddhist and you notice, please let me know.

This has been an informational post.  Have a nice day.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD EVERYONE READ THIS. READ IT. LEARN IT. PREACH IT.

I AM SO TIRED OF EVERYONE BELIEVING THIS MISCONCEPTION.
