"They" and "their-fruits" are cyclic; feeding each other for good or ill! Bitter fruits contain the seeds of the trees and plants which bear bitter fruits. Sweet fruits contain the seeds of the trees and plants which bear sweet fruits. If we desire bitter fruits, we plant the seeds of our bitter fruits. If we desire sweet fruits, we plants the seeds of our sweet fruits. The tragedy is that some of us have not know sweet fruits, having known only bitter fruits. Some of use have been so confused that we have confused bitter and sweet fruits; and plant the wrong kinds of seeds --- and maintain our tragic confusions --- and confuse many others. Some of us are so confused that we resent others who seek to help liberate us from our confusion, pain and loved bitter fruits. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
