    If anyone speaks ill of you,

    Praise him always.



    If anyone injures you,

    Serve him nicely.



    If anyone persecutes you,

    Help him in all possible ways.



    You will attain immense strength.



    You will control anger and pride.



    You will enjoy peace, poise and serenity.



    You will become divine

    If anyone speaks ill of you,
    do not allow it to arouse
    the smallest ripple
    of disturbance in the mind—

    In a single stroke,
    simply cut off their head.

    But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

    Jesus the Christ 33 A.D.

    It is a good viewpoint to see the world as a dream. When you have something like a nightmare, you will wake up and tell yourself that it was only a dream. It is said that the world we live in is not a bit different from this.

    He was dead by then. He was born about 4-6 years before Christ (?!?) and died at age 33. Therefore he died sometime between 26-28 CE.

    Some theologians believe that Jesus actually only lived to see 30-31 tops. Tradition holds Jesus was 33 at the time of his death because the Bible lists a passover feast with the disciples three times. It is entirely possible that the three listings are describing the same passover feast. It is also thought that Jesus's ministry was so radical there is no way the Jewish leaders would have stood it for three years, especially after cleaning the temple of moneychangers.
