    Time to buy?

    This is a great opportunity to buy this stock IMO.

    Backing out cash at the holding level, you are almost getting CNA, DO, BWP, Highmount, Hotels, etc... for $10B.

    That is nuts. CNA may be worth $10B, if the market catches up.

    Like all companies, there is risk, but damn, I can't think of a cheaper stock.

    • Curly: Do you know what the secret of life is? [holds up one finger] This.

      Mitch: Your finger?

      Curly: One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and the rest don't mean s***.

      Mitch: But, what is the "one thing?"

      Curly: That's what you have to find out.

      -Me: ...okay. Done. There is only one thing that actually exists.

      Curly: There is nothing like bringing in the herd.

      - Me: ...Well...[ blah, blah, blah...] Nothing is the absence of everything. Or in other words... [blah, blah, blah....]

      Curly: Do you know what the secret of life is? [holds up one finger]. This.

    • The seed inside describes the tree outside.

      ...but a Man ascends up into Heaven, and measures it.

      On Earth as it is in Heaven.

      • Jesus said, "Congratulations to those who are alone and chosen, for you will find the kingdom. For you have come from it, and you will return there again."

        Another statement not in support of the transmigration of the Soul.

        Alone and chosen; as everything that is, an essence of God is His Singularity.

      • The essence of God is His Singularity.

        Made in His Image.

        But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: you are of more value than many sparrows.

      • Generation is mortal.
        Regeneration is immortal.

        Tat. In the general Speeches, O Father, discoursing of the Divinity, thou speakest enigmatically, and didst not clearly reveal thyself, saying, That no man can be saved before Regeneration.

        Hermes. This is Regeneration [I'mmortal], O Son, that we should not any longer fix our imagination upon this Body, subject to the three dimensions, according to this Speech which we have now commented.

        The sensible Body of Nature is far from the Essential Generation ; for that is subject to Dissolution mortality, but this not; and that is mortal, but this immortal. Dost thou not know that thou art born a God and the Son of the One, as I am.

        ===

        Regeneration for us is not regeneration for God as His Understanding was set up at the first - which is the Essential Generation of His Understanding.

        Essential Generation is not subject to dissolution. Dissolution is the tangible mortality of the intangible immortal.

        And as all understanding is His Understanding [Essential Generation] and since it is from His Understanding that we are each granted the immortal understanding of one [regeneration], "dost thou not know that thou art born a God and the Son of the One."

        Essential Generation: That which is made but once, is never corrupted, neither becomes any other thing. The essence of God.

        And so it is that Essence of God that is the basis for the regeneration of the immortal. I mean it ain't God that is being regenerated.

        I'mmortal

      • And so as we are the living proof of the tangible re-birth of the Soul,

        Jesus said, "If they say to you, 'Where have you come from?' say to them, 'We have come from the light, from the place where the light came into being by itself, established [itself], and appeared in their image.'

        If they say to you, 'Is it you?' say, 'We are its children, and we are the chosen of the living Father.' [It is His Understanding you see.]

        If they ask you, 'What is the evidence of your Father in you?' say to them, 'It is motion and rest.'" [You and the absence of you. The pairing of the mortal you and immortal you in what amounts to eternity is you.]

        ===

        And so as we are the living proof of the tangible re-birth of the Soul,

        Jesus said - which each us may also say, "I am the one who comes from what is whole. I was granted from the things of my Father."

        ===

        And so as granted by God [as all understanding belongs in the universe] we are the living proof of the tangible re-birth of the Soul in you as a mortal in the universe and as an immortal in God.

        God is the universe.

      • Pay dirt!

        I marvel at how this great wealth has come to dwell in this poverty.

        Dust to dust!

      • Jesus said, "A person cannot mount two horses or bend two bows.

        And a slave cannot serve two masters, otherwise that slave will honor the one and offend the other.

        Nobody drinks aged wine and immediately wants to drink young wine. Young wine is not poured into old wineskins, or they might break, and aged wine is not poured into a new wineskin, or it might spoil.

        An old patch is not sewn onto a new garment, since it would create a tear."

        ===

        So what is the above all about?

        The transmigration of Soul is as ludicrous as the transmigration of self understanding. What is unfailing and enduring doesn't keep changing its identity as well as its location in God.

        The understanding of somebody else ain't you and won't ever be you.

      • As your existence in the universe is both the proof and the understanding of the proof, not even your faults allow you to escape your destiny in God as His Understanding of the universe from which you are made.

        His disciples said to him, "When will the rest for the dead take place, and when will the new world come?"

        He said to them, "What you are looking forward to has come, but you don't know it."

      • - Tell me where I'm going to die so I won't go there.

        Okay then.... Well... tangibly, where you end is when you begin, and intangibly, when you end is where you begin.

      • Keep God in mind because God is the universe and the universe expands into itself.

        And the mind into which the universe expands would be considered the Mind of God.

        For example Jesus has the Mind of God because he keeps in mind is that he is one that comes from what is whole.

        Or in other words, "If the flesh came into being because of spirit, that is a marvel, but if spirit came into being because of the body, that is a marvel of marvels."

        See what his body keeps in mind? Thus he marvels at how this great wealth has come to dwell in this poverty.

      • Or in other words, with one thing in mind keep nothing of you and everything of God.

        As the intangible life is in tangible life, everything of God is stable and immutable.

    • In full light of the Sun, grown and raised from the earth is You.

      And You are the understanding of the universe.

      • Compared to a plethora of other names I ain't so smart at Science.... or English.... or much else for that matter.

        Rather, the true circumcision in spirit has become profitable in every respect.... lucky me... :)

      • The seed inside describes the tree outside.

        Without going outside his door, one understands (all that takes
        place) under the sky; without looking out from his window, one sees
        the Tao of Heaven. The farther that one goes out (from himself), the
        less he knows.

        ===

        It ain't the fruit that fights gravity. It is the seed that searches for light.

        And there is nothing buried that will not be raised.

      • Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: And it came to pass, as he sowed....

        Raised in full light of the Sun You are borne from the body of the earth.
        You are an understanding of the Universe. And the Universe is the Father of the World.

        This returning to their root is what we call the
        state of stillness; and that stillness may be called a reporting that
        they have fulfilled their appointed end.
        - Lao Tzu

        Endless return to God is the endless return to Life.

        Jesus said, "Look to the living one as long as you live, otherwise you might die and then try to see the living one, and you will be unable to see."

        Endless return to God. Not even Buffett can match that return! [well... at least Mr.Wonderful should be laughing at that one. Hehehehe...]

    • Hermes. Consider this also, O Son, That God hath freely bestowed upon man, above all other living things, these two, to wit, Mind and Speech, or Reason, equal to immortality.

      Does a stone reflect His Understanding? Does a stone reflect light? Is a stone outside of the universe?

      His Understanding is His Light and His Light is your Speech and your Speech is His Understanding.

      ===

      For the blessed God, the good Demon said or commanded the Soul to be in the Body, the Mind, in the Soul, the Word, or Speech, or Reason in the Mind, and the Mind in God, and that God is the Father of them all.

      Therefore the Word is the Image of the Mind, and the Mind of God, and the Body of the Idea, and the Idea of the Soul.

      His Understanding is His Light and His Light is your Speech and your Speech is His Understanding.

      It's what comes out of your mouth that will defile you.

      ===

      His Understanding is His Light and His Light is your Speech and your Speech is His Understanding.

      Jesus said, "Why do you wash the outside of the cup? Don't you understand that the one who made the inside is also the one who made the outside?"

      ===

      Your Speech is His Understanding and His Understanding is You. And Your Life is He because He is the universe and there ain't anything else.

      Hermes:
      And Man had more than all living Creatures, and the World, because of his Speech, and Mind.

      For Divinity is from or under God, and Understanding from the Mind, being the sister of the Word or Speech, and they the Instruments one of another.

      For-neither is the Word pronounced without Understanding, neither is Understanding manifested without the Word.

      ===

    • The opposite of the truth does not exist.
      Truth is the Word of God.
      It's what comes out of your mouth that will defile you.
      On earth as it is in Heaven.
      After all, what goes into your mouth will not defile you;

      ====
      The opposite of the truth does not exist.
      Truth is the Word of God.
      His Understanding is St.Able and I'mmutable

      ===

      The opposite of the truth does not exist.
      Truth is the Word of God.
      When he has cleansed away the most mysterious sights (of his imagination), he can become without
      a flaw.

      On earth as it is in Heaven.
      When the intelligent and animal souls are held together in one embrace, they can be kept from separating. [stable and immutable]

      ===

      The opposite of the truth does not exist.
      Truth is the Word of God and God is good.

      • Where there is no understanding, understanding doesn't exist.

        All understanding belongs to God as it is in the universe and God is the universe.

        Understanding is inside out because understanding reflects the light that travels outside in.

        In all yours ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

        Understanding is inside out because understanding reflects the light that travels outside in.

        The (Father's) kingdom is within you and it is outside you.

        God is the universe. And all of you fully exists within it as part of the Maker.
        Made in HIS Image.

        Why do you wash the outside of the cup? Don't you understand that the one who made the inside is also the one who made the outside?

        Understanding is inside out because understanding reflects the light that travels outside in.

        Know what is in front of your face.

        You examine the face of heaven and earth, but you have not come to know the one who is in your presence, and you do not know how to examine the present moment.

        God is Life and His Understanding is Light.
        God is good.
        God is the universe.
        Understanding is inside out because understanding reflects the light that travels outside in.
        God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.

        In the complete dark, what does a mirror reflect?

      • Do you see yet?

        Truth is what you demand. Is that not an obligation to then demand that from yourself?

        That's simple but that sure ain't easy. And what ain't easy is difficult.

        "It is a venerable way and plain, but hard and difficult for the soul to go in that is in the body."
        - Hermes

        "Rejoice, O young man, in your youth; and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth, and walk in the ways of your heart, and in the sight of your eyes: but know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment." - Ecclesiastes

        Luke 12:19 And I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry."

        Ecclesiastes 12:14 For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.

        Genesis 3:19 In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread, till you return unto the ground; for out of it were you taken: for dust you are, and unto dust shall you return.

        ===

        Karma is the fate of all. It what it is because what it is ain't up to you. But it is up to you to understand. So understand it for what it is not for what it isn't.

        There is no suffering in the Mind of God. Since God is Everything then your mind is His.

        Since there is no suffering in the Mind of God then if you are suffering in mind then guess where you ain't?

        Understanding ain't always a journey you know. Flip. In the dark. In the light. In the dark. In the light. The flip of a switch ain't exactly a journey.

        God is never upside down.

        So then man's fate is what?

        Understanding of man. And that understanding belongs to God. And God is good.

        That Good.

    • If the writer is not the reader then the writer has absolutely no idea to whom he is writing.

      "Therefore all things whatsoever would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them."

      Trismegistus. O Son, he that hears must co-understand and conspire in thought with him that speaks; yea, he must have his hearing swifter and sharper than the voice of the speaker.

      To those who are good (to me), I am good; and to those who are not
      good (to me), I am also good;--and thus (all) get to be good. To
      those who are sincere (with me), I am sincere; and to those who are
      not sincere (with me), I am also sincere;--and thus (all) get to be
      sincere.
      - Lao Tzu

    • I just don't get it how people can coo over the guy and yet be completely lost in translation.

      His Understanding back then is of back then. So you really gotta be quite some guy to appreciate Shakespeare's true genius. It was written for the common man who by the way, today, ain't got no idea what the guy is talking about.

      As a result, I am freaked out. Reasonably so that is.

    • SayTen,

      It's what comes out of your mouth that will defile you.

    • The scope of morality is ever-widening to encompass what was once considered enemy territory.

      If you can't beat them then join them.

      And it ain't immorality that tries to beat morality is it? All immorality is defined by morality and morality keeps changing the definition.
