Who not to Invite for a Banquet-Dealing with Issues
As you make arrangements to gather for the Holiday Seasons, a few things to observe and ensure with the concierge:
- 1) When asking your friends to come for a serving at the table of charity, be careful that you close the windows of inopportunity, for she shall open it to "gluttony", who shall leap thru and devour what goodwill is available.
- 2) You should be careful not to allow "hatred" to shatter a lecherous relationship, for then "malice", (the remembrance of wrongs) will stand in the way of reconciliation. This is because a prayer will not stand in the company of malice.
- 3) Be careful regarding rough words and gestures, for they are a stick in the hands of "Ire".
- 4) When resentment becomes intoxicated she spouts off, "I can be anything I want, vainglory, love of money, greed, lust; for my mother is conceit."
- 5) I ask that you restrain these and all tyrants with twines of meekness, and beaten down with patience, for anything else, ignites a into a funeral pyre.
- 6) Remember to be this way in calling upon the assistance of "tameness and patience" for in so doing, as if with a two edged knife, you will cut the throats of "sadness and unfounded sorrow" that tends to follow from all this; for their voices are not to be heard!
- 7) I tell you truly, if not, you shall be that one who dismisses these instruction now, and later accept anothers' wealth and delights, is similar to the one that stones a hungry dog with pieces of meat, even though they seem to pursue it and chase the dogs away. Yet, in fact, this is keeping those things around for this reason, for with the trying, one seems to be discarding delights, yet, in truth, they have discarded "truth and reason".
