Jesus Said, "Carry Your Cross:" Nothing About Strolling on Hot Coals

I read where Twenty-one (21) unfocused souls were treated for second
and third degree burns after their 'Peak Performance Strategist'
( read Guru Grifter) talked them into Doing The Stroll 
over glowing hunks of Kingsford.

The injuries took place during the first day Thursday of a four-day event at the San Jose Convention Center hosted by Robbins called "Unleash the Power Within." Most of those hurt had second and third degree burns, said San Jose Fire Department Capt. Reggie Williams. Walking across hot coals on lanes measuring 10 feet long and heated to between 1,200 to 2,000 degrees provides attendees an opportunity to "understand that there is absolutely nothing you can't overcome," according to the motivational speaker's website. 

Have you ever taken a gander at this Robbins cat?

Man, I wouldn't take seconds on lobster tails and drawn butter,
if he thought it was a great idea.

If one is unfocused, lost, overwhlemed,
guys like this James Bond villain can lift their
wallets and make them like it.

The best teachers, Catholic, Jewish, Evangelical and Muslim, tend to stay
underpaid, but never overwhelmed, let alone unfocused.
They require hard work from their disciples,
but never seem to require a stroll over hot coals.


Jesus and the guys worked on vacation -

Mark 6: 30 - 34

The apostles returned to Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught.
And he said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a lonely place, and rest a while." For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat.
And they went away in the boat to a lonely place by themselves.
Now many saw them going, and knew them, and they ran there on foot from all the towns, and got there ahead of them.
As he went ashore he saw a great throng, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.,0,4469568.story
