do not recite poetry to one who is not a poet.
Ch’an (Zen) Buddhist aphorism
Ultimately, in one form or another, we must all answer for our actions
and those that can operate with clean conscience due to the rightness of their actions
will always be better served than those that seek to rationalize their self-serving or otherwise malevolent behavior.
And we all would do well to remember that, when confronting a swordsman,
our own blade must be fast and true and without hesitation, for the
“fluent blade cuts cleanly…”
……limit your interactions wherever possible to avoid those that would employ the ancient strategy of,
“To hold a sword behind the smile.”
...Malachi Martin says is the greatest of all evil....
....the person/situation that smiles in your face while all the time sticking the murderous knife in your back that you don't feel,
due to the power of The Smile.

by destructive or antisocial impulses in oneself and others is as valuable today
as it was in the time of Jesus, the master Exorcist.
Just as modern biblical scholars suggest that the demons that Jesus cast out

from forces that we feel are beyond our control.
Shamans, for example, conduct rituals
for the release of negative spirits

there is contained a singular treasure concealed in the form-mountain--
—the numinous radiance of sentient things.
Utterly empty, still, and difficult to perceive within or without,
it is styled the “mystery of mysteries.”
Its skill reaches out beyond the [celestial palace] of Purple Subtlety,
and its function resides in the very midst of empty nonbeing.
