    Very interesting question. If it were at all possible I would make sure that everyone is happy. Not some materialistic happiness but real happiness that comes from within. If everyone were to truly be happy with life then very many of the causes of what is wrong with society would cease to exist. The world would most definitely be a much better place to live and we could all coexist with one another.

    That is a pretty good quote from the Buddha. I think one of the problems of religion and paths are that people just assume that they are in the correct mode. One of the first things my monk taught me years ago was that you are not a Buddhist because you read a book and and call yourself one; you are a Buddhist when you are a Buddhist.

    If I was God for a moment I would really reconsider whether giving us human beings "free will" was the right thing to do. ;)
