                     :————————*+*———————:


If the night turned cold and the stars looked down
And you hug yourself on the cold cold ground.
You wake the morning in a stranger’s coat,
No one would you see.
You ask yourself, who’d watch for me?
My only friend, who could it be?
It’s hard to say it, I hate to say it, but it’s probably me.

When your belly’s empty and the hunger’s so real
And you’re too proud to beg and too dumb to steal,
You search the city for your only friend,
No one would you see.
You ask yourself, who’d watch for me?
A solitary voice to speak out and set me free.
I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it’s probably me.

You’re not the easiest person I ever got to know
And it’s hard for us both to let our feelings show.
Some would say I should let you go your way,
You’ll only make me cry.
But if there’s one guy, just one guy
Who’d lay down his life for you and die,
I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it’s probably me.

When the world’s gone crazy and it makes no sense
And there’s only one voice that comes to your defense.
The jury’s out and your eyes search the room
And one friendly face is all you need to see.
And if there’s one guy, just one guy
Who’d lay down his life for you and die,
I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it’s probably me.

I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it’s probably me…

"dancing with hungry ghosts."

Thus half I heard: “Impatience may be costumed as zeal for truth; lust, as love of beauty.

Gossip may pass as sharing commentary on a sutta, as craving for power begs with no bowl.

Bhikku, the fear of disclosure may appear as reclusive bodhichitta, and pride in scholarship may mimic dhamma-talk.

Thus it is said: While cherishing illicit pleasures, one is dancing with hungry ghosts.”~Buddha

As a businessman I read the Journal every morning, and enjoyed the front page human interest piece. When Murdoch bought the WSJ, changes came, and I soon let my subscription end. October 13, 2014 at my local library I read the day’s Journal, only to find no human interest stories, and every page filled with calamity, dilemma, and certain financial ruin worldwide. In the words of Didi, “Nothing to be done.”

Quote:

" BP PLC. The British oil company says it loses about $275 million in annual pretax operating profit when Brent’s price drops $1 since the company’s so-called upstream division earns less for the oil it produces.
     But BP’s and Royal Dutch Shell PLC’s refining operations—which have done so poorly in recent years that investors have pressured some companies to leave the business—now provide some insulation. That is because the downstream operations, which refine oil into gasoline and other products, become more profitable when the oil they use is cheaper. Prices of refined products such as gasoline typically don’t fall as quickly as those for crude.
     For each dollar-per-barrel of improved profit margin for refined products, BP generates $500 million in extra pretax operating profit annually. In recent weeks, that refining margin was $5.70 a barrel higher than in the fourth quarter of last year, BP says.
     Companies get “short-term support in downstream earnings” when oil prices fall, says Jason Kenney, an analyst with Banco Santander. “

My broker sent me that tidbit this morning, after reading which he advised “When others cry, Guy, it’s time to BUY” and in this case, he meant buy oil.

To me, that means his firm is shorting BP.

Vedam Rudram

"The sounds of this mantra connect you to your inner being. Listening and chanting it with deep understanding will give you the meaning of life, its pain, its bondage and shows the path to liberation through surrender to Lord Shiva and Lord Rudra…. the destruction and regenerative power the key to our evolution" ~Ramesh Krishnakumar
