My dis-ability to not being able to understand people and their anger

It seems to me, that i suck at this skill.  I love and love and often am met with anger and angst though i've attempted to make amends.  I have have changed immensely -- You ask many in San Diego,Ca, who knew me when i first got out of the service.  I was not a nice person to be friends with, yet many braved and chose to.  I am grateful to those people.

Do You believe we might be different spiritually and emotionally if we do not have the handicap the world tags us with?

A Beautiful Mind
and a close 2nd -- Phenomenon

By now it's not surprise that i cry a lot and these 2 films found me either bawling or quietly sobbing.
I still cry each time i watch anew.

Are You OPEN to public emotional expression?
Why not?

I cut myself to the point of bleeding and soothe myself with the blood all over my skin.

Then clean the wound and bandage and tomorrow i will cut somewhere else.

Yours (same Question)

I used to own a 357 magnum and a speed loader for the weapon but i no longer live in a poor neighborhood AND when i became a student of zen Buddhism, felt i no longer should have a need for such things.  

Do You feel safer with a weapon in Your possession providing You could own one?

dealing with toxic people and bad associations I have learned there is a time to walk away rather than allowing them to pull you down

what is your favourite Buddhist teaching?

when i chose to leave Christianity, i sought out what felt like the most gentle of the Buddhist beliefs and zen resonated with me.

Most of my family on my Mom's side are Buddhist (no idea what type) and so only on my caucasian side am i the most misunderstood.

But my Sister and her husband accept me and that is a lot.

How much time past by should it be to be forgiven, providing someone has improved themselves and via actions -- changed for the better?

depends on the crime and damage done I have a short list of people that I will not forgive, I cannot forgive and If I seek forgiveness and it is spat back in my face I tend to walk away

should everyone be forgiven?

I believe -- from intimate personal experience --
the only way for me to heal and heal others is to forgive those who harmed me.  I no longer need them to acknowledge me and my forgiveness.  Just that I have and DO is enough and more than enough for my spirit.

I have suffered physical shit i pray no one ever has to endure in this or any future lifetimes.  I still forgive my abuser.  I pray that he finds the compassion and will to forgive himself and find peace .........maybe joy, as well.

Is all sentient life a sacred thing?
