mark boyle and the dalai lama

Lately, Englishman Mark Boyle thought that he could walk from Britain to India without having a penny on him, only relying on men's bounty. He got only as far as Calais, France, from which he had to return to England. He stated, "I was pretty much out of food, hadn't slept for days and was really cold. I had to reasses the whole plan."
dalaï lamaIs there any connection between Mark Boyle and the Dalai Lama then, apart from the fact that India where the Dalai Lama lives as a refugee was Mark Boyle's aim and they both belong to the human race?
There is a connection
. Buddhist bikkhus or bhikshus can live on charity throughout their lives, but a Westerner cannot do more than thirty Miles and not be left starving and freezing to death by his own kind. This story bluntly shows the conflicting perspectives of spiritual humanity and materialistic humanity.

Billions of believers have been poised between the two humanities and in anguish still unable to decide on either. It will take more than four generation to decide (Rev of Arès 24/2), but The Revelation of Arès makes us more aware of the right decision. Man has to regain spiritual life.
mark boyleI can just imagine my fellow-countrymen saying : "Yes, but be carefull...Be careful!.. What did Mark Boyle try to do? Just make the most of men's stupidity so that he could take a trip for free, while the Dalai Lama is the natural head of Tibet who was forced to flee by the Chinese, followed by his monks, who have been pursuing very high ideals."
Very good! By the way, what about Mark Boyle's ideals? Did anybody ask him about them in Calais? I have my doubts. As there is an English look about him (just see the picture), he has no right to ideals other than the ideals of Descarte (or of Francis Bacon) and of public subsidies. No right to the charity copper coin (Rev of Arès 34/4) given to the unexpected one, the man of the time to come (30/13). If only he was a bum, his cap glued by 2-year grime on his mop of hair, his breath winy, but no, he wasn't! Mark Boyle had new clean clothes and gears on, his head was well-shaved, he had a nice face approved by the Department of Health (see the picture again). But the Dalai Lama also has a well-shaved head, clean clothes... Come on, come on! Let's not complicate things! The categories have been set. Mark Boyle has no right to anything, particularly no right to have non-homologated ideas.

Without the slightest hesitation I say, I like the Dalai Lama very much. He could be a good Arès Pilgrim and I could be a good Buddhist, if it weren't for the reincarnation point—but the point will be solved by the spiritual intelligence (Rev of Arès 32/5) once man retrieves it—. In any case, there are in the Buddhist ideals and the Aresian ideals a lot of concepts in common, notably the concept, which is essential, that "doing" is more significant than "believing", and that kindness, forgiveness, peace, freedom, are the beacons on the route to Good. Jesus and Buddha have more values in common than differences, even though the former used to mention God and the latter did not or, at least, did not mention him in the same way. Their differences were particularly due to their cultural environments, a Jewish one for Jesus, a Brahmanic one for Buddha. Which just shows that culture hampers evolution, is definitely an obstacle on the road to Truth.
I like Mark Boyle just as much, although he is probably not an Arès Pilgrim, because his surge of freedom and the faith he put in men, even frustrated in Calais, France, are close to ours, unquestionably.
The idols of the mind (Rev of Arès 23/8) have been striving to divide and blind all of men that set new targets for themselves, but we are perfectly conscious which people are our kind in the global expectation that the world will be changing (Rev of Arès 28/7).

Very good blog about the Lama and the European! (I hadn't heard about it, of course.)
Dare I say that I think things are different in the New World? When I had been here for only several days, a man asked for a dime for a cup of coffee. But he didn't whine, like an English beggar; he asked in a friendly manner — Tomorrow it could be my turn to be out of luck.
At a church supper, a woman asked my fiancee, "Who is that young man?" "He is a friend of Brian's." "But until he met Brian, he had nothing to eat and nowhere to sleep."
That was in Nevada, the real West. In Manhattan, I was walking along the street and someone asked me for a quarter. I thought, "What is a quarter to you?" and put my hand in my pocket. Immediately, he said, "Oh, don't bother!" and turned away. ????
Greetings to Sr. Christiane, your daughters, and Fr. Gerard!
The peace of the Lord!
