    Through intellect you know the difference between the permananent and the impermanent.

    CUP OF BLISS

    Sorrow touches me not,
    Pain affects me not;
    All joy, all blis I am,
    Eternal satisfaction I am.

    The silvery moon, the brilliant sun
    Are my eyes.
    The rivers are my veins.
    The stars, the mountains,
    The herbs, trees and plants,
    The Vedas and the Devas
    Are my expression, my breath.

    My exhalation is this universe,
    My inhalation is dissolution.
    The world is my body,
    All bodies are mine.
    All hands, ears, eyes are mine.
    The fire is my mouth,
    The wind is my breath.

    Energy, time proceed from me.
    All beings throb in me,
    All hearts pulsate in me.
    Causation I am,
    In all quarters I am,
    Quarters are my garment.

    All time is now,
    All distance here;
    I fill all space,
    Where can I move?
    No space to move.
    Infinite I am,
    Unconditioned I am,
    Bhuma I am
    Bhumananda Svarupoham.

  4. It's holiday time which means Jewish fans from around the world are celebrating Chanukah which includes playing the traditional game of dreidel. The Yiddish word dreidel is derived from the German word drehen meaning "turn." The Hebrew word for dreidel is s'vivon. A dreidel is a four-sided top with a symbol on each side. Each symbol represents a word which put together say in Hebrew "Nes Gadol Hayah Sham" it translates as "A Great Miracle Happened There." (However, in Israel the letters on a dreidel are changed to stand for "A Great Miracle Happened Here.")
    Some religious scholars believe that the dreidel game originated during the times of the Greek-Syrians, and is closely connected to the Chanukah holiday. Because the ruling Greek-Syrians outlawed Jews from learning the Torah, the Jews needed a way to hide their studies. The dreidel became a clever decoy. When Jewish students saw the Greek-Syrians coming, they would hide their books and play with dreidels instead, which tricked the Syrians into thinking they were just playing a harmless game.

    In this Star Wars variation, the dreidel and the droid R2-D2 combine to make Droidel! Print out the PDF and follow these instructions to construct your very own paper Droidel.

    How To Make a Paper Droidel:

    1. Print out the Droidel PDF and glue it to a thin piece of cardstock or cardboard like from a cereal box

    2. Once the glue is dry, have an adult carefully cut it out along the edges (including the flaps). Also cut out R2-D2's circle dome.

    3. Carefully cut out the circle. This is where the small pencil or a straw will go -- so you can spin the dreidel like a top.

    4. Fold along the lines on the inside, then glue or tape where the flaps tell you. Do the top part last.

    5. Fold the top extra R2-D2 circle top into a wide cone and place on top of the dreidel with glue or tape. Make sure the holes line up.

    6. Then stick in a small pencil or a straw through the holes you cut at the top.

    7. Now you're read to play!

  5. Those are some crazy posts, do they relate to the comic? I think I must have missed some deeper hidden meaning!
    Wow.
