I will repeat this mantra to stop myself from letting the panic take over the time with my kids and husband and work. I will do what needs to be done to get rid of them but not let them into my brain...ommmmmmm.
And in other good news my coop with now start searching every apartment with a bed bug dog! YAYAYAYAY!
the true Self stands motionless on the foundations of eternity, whatever forces of nature may storm outside. Everything that arises eventually passes away, leaving only the Self. The true nature of reality is joy. therefore, rest your mind on the unshakable within, the joys of existence. And after a period of reflection and rest, gather your strength, and kill the b*stards!
PS--while generally it is considered bad karma to kill other living beings, 9 out of 10 yogis agree that bed bugs don't count.
Oh I really hope that it is not bad karma to kill them, otherwise I am doomed. In my next life I will come back as a bed bug fighting for my life, trying not to be squashed by the giant I am stealing bloodlife from! No I don't think I would like that one bit.
Thanks for the inspiring quote. I think I will think that as I get ready to bed. Gnight!
I'm just goofing around here, and not preaching at all, but for my own amusement I started pondering the Bhagavadgita, and there actually is some good stuff in the Gita that can help with the bed bug crisis. In the story, the Hero, Arjuna, is at war with his evil cousins. He gets really stressed out and overwhelmed and sits down in the middle of the battlefield, full of despair, eyes downcast and utterly lost. Krishna gives him this huge pep-talk and ices it with "there is no greater glory than the war against evil. Therefore, Arjuna, fight in this battle!"
Whoo hoo! Besides, bedbugs probably came back as bed bugs to burn off karma, so you're doing them a favor by killing them and helping them graduate to the next life.
Oh, and it's self defense. They are eating your blood.
Outstanding the Mangy Mantra.
