Random acts of kindness

In love, we don't exist; We are just an instrument of the Hand that created everything.

In love, we don’t exist; We are just an instrument of the Hand that created everything.

In love, we don’t exist; We are just an instrument of the Hand that created everything. — Paulo Coelho

It must be something to do with Buddhist culture.

Can anyone imagine such an advert in UK? Where the emphasis is on greed, must have, will make your life better, and so the moronic consumer sets out to the shopping centre.

The opening chapter in Revolution, Russell Brand describes the arrival of a shopping centre called Lakeside, it had to have a lake built to make sense of itself.

The first betrayal is in the name, ‘Lakeside’, the giant shopping centre, mall to Americans, and maul is right, because these citadels of global brands are not tender lovers, it is not a consensual caress, it’s a maul.

Growing up in Greys as a bored teenager, hanging around a shopping centre, with a lake to make sense of itself, brainwashed into thinking, if only could have the goods on display, life would be better, only it is not it is an addiction, the need for fame, celebrity status, all an illusion, addiction to drugs, clean for a decade, but the desire is always there, help from recovering addicts, one step at a time, mental breakdown, wandering the streets in a pair of pyjamas raving, but getting away with it because rich and famous.

Greys, the very name depressing. The only excitement for a bored teenager, the arrival of a shopping centre called Lakeside. It had to have a lake constructed to make sense of itself.

Our largest buildings make sense of society, they tell us who is boss.

The mediaeval church, cathedral, palace, castle. The 19th century bank. And now the shopping centre and the corporate headquarters of global corporations.

Our largest buildings are temples to greed.
