We share this journey

.

.

We share this journey with others, we lend a helping hand to the needy.

We are not in competition, better positions are not available for conquering others in sport, in business, at home or at play in the after life.

You do not earn extra years of life for defeating others, gaining status or power.

The recipe for happiness contains large quantities of gratitude and giving.

Hate, jealousy, worry, anger and fear are ingredients that spoil the recipe.

The suffering I witness is overwhelming, no way I can even dent the surface.

I can selectively help a few. I volunteer, give freely without concern for reward, and dedicate my meditation to help the needy.

It distresses me to see the hate and vitriol in politics these days. America hates on a level I have not witnessed since my youth.

Each side justifies abhorrent behavior for its purpose.

Politicians make me puke, corruption, graft and special interests rule the day.

Be a giver, have gratitude for every small blessing you become aware of.

Giving is permanent, not many things are!
