Random quote: "You must be what you would see and give what you would have. If you would have more substance, you must share more substance. If you point the finger at another part of the garden and illuminate its lack, the bleakness of your gift diminishes the beauty of the part of the garden you are in." ~ Raj

Raj never said to abandon our common sense. If we stay in our peace then we will be able to hear guidance and take the most appropriate action.

Sometimes that might mean killing madmen who endanger other's lives. Sometimes that might mean having the right words to say that will change someone's heart so that their life can also be saved.

Raj talked about a policeman who had to shoot to death a mad man. It was his MOTIVE that was the crucial thing. If he shot the man to save other's lives as well as his own, he would have acted with integrity. If the police officer was a racist and the madman was non-white and the officer took this opportunity to justify killing someone he didn't like, this would be a crime and should be addressed.
