We are sacred beings.
Therefore, when others try
to "shovel dirt on our graves",
they are actually
"shoveling dirt on their own graves" unawares.

By the time they might be thought
to realize what they are doing,
it is too late....

Nature traps those who think that men are not gods.
However, all beings are sacred.
Therefore She provided plenty of "earth"
with which to "bury ourselves".
This is The Law of Justice operating self-service style.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Christ's admonition,
'Judge not lest ye be judged' (Matthew 7:1)
I paraphrase and articulate as
Judge ye not vengefully lest ye be judged by thine own Conscience or The Laws of Nature/God first,
and perhaps the laws of men second.

The original could be truthfully worded as
'Judge not vengefully lest thou judge thyself so',
but most people would not understand
what 'judging thyself' means.

I have elaborated upon the asserted original
with the truthful concept that
the Conscience is one's judge,
plus the Laws of God and laws of men.

However, 'Judge not lest ye be judged'
doesn't make perfect sense,
as 'to judge' means to form an opinion,
and the admonition implies that
the questionable judgment must be at least
harsh in thought if not vengeful.

Perhaps something was lost in many translations,
or the church altered the wording.
Anyway, because the wording has
never made sense to me,
and one other thinker noticed this also,
I know the addition of the word "vengefully"
is justified, at least in the mind of a thinker
unconcerned with the church's approval.
