Arrow Wheel Eternal


Why is a spare tyre called a Stepney in India?..

Right at the centre of the wheel is usually depicted a pig, a chicken, and a snake..The positioning can vary but in the image above we see that the pig has both the feathers of the chicken and the tail of the snake in its mouth..So not only is the pig the dominant character in the scene, but the scene itself is at the centre of the entire wheel, the everyday world in which we find ourselves is viewed as unsatisfactory..We constantly strive to improve our situation, but are only ever able to find temporary happiness..In our modern society it is easy to see this: many of us believe that happiness will come with a new job, a new partner, a new house etc. but once we acquire the object of our desire, before long the feeling wears off and we return to our dissatisfied state..On a more fundamental level, life can seem meaningless as throughout all of our striving we know deep down that we will eventually die and lose everything..

What About The Chicken And The Snake?..

Ignorance is 1 of the 3 poisons, the other two being attachment (represented by the Chicken in the Wheel of Life) and Aversion (the Snake)..The Chicken and the Snake are in the jaws of the pig, demonstrating how ignorance is the cause of the other two poisons..It is easy to see how ignorance creates attachment..If we are ignorant about the true nature of the mind we will believe in that external objects can make us happy..We will think, “when I get this new job/car/house/partner/etc.. I will be happy”.. So we become attached to something temporary, clinging to it as if it was solid: we will regret it if we do not obtain it, if we lose it we will resent its absence..If we desire something that we do not have, we may become jealous of a person who has it – which can drive us even to hatred..It is the identification with this self that brings us suffering..In this way ignorance is said to give rise to all the pain and suffering in the world..The Bay of Pigs Invasion was a failed military invasion of Cuba undertaken by the Central Intelligence Agency -sponsored paramilitary group Brigade 2506 that eventually led to the events of the Cuban Missile Crisis..

And then the Lord came to the River..

Did you say that you were interested in Astronomy or Astrology, Simon?..Beings are swept along by the powerful current of the 4 rivers..Tightly bound by the chains of their karma, so difficult to undo..Ensnared within the iron trap of their self-grasping..And enshrouded in the thick darkness of ignorance..There’s a street called ‘Stepney’ in the town of Llanelli in Wales..Story goes that a mechanic on Stepney street was the first to provide the ready to use spare wheels..And the spare wheels therefore began to be referred to as Stepney..his intention-quickly excused himself to the American woman, and cut off the Duke's advance..The Spare wheel cover protects spare tires from the dirt and the sun's rays in areas with many days of sunshine..Before, they had been beasts, their instincts fitly adapted to their surroundings..The Swina is a river in northwest Poland, between 2 to 4 km from the German border - The Generation of Swine discuss the politics and culture of the 80s, with significant coverage of the Iran-Contra Affair..It's just great that we should become acquainted at last through you..Swine is a village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England..Two miles south-west of the village are the earthwork remains of the medieval Swine Castle..Where is the Swine ..The New Swine dying on the vine..He who seriously wants to dispel all the misery of others, because in the stream of his own being he has understood the nature of misery..Is an excellent man... are times when the little cloud spreads, until it obscures the sky..Ah Sirius!.My Astronomy is so rusty..Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces..I suppose everything in existence takes its colour from the average hue of our surroundings...
