Taking Stock

Some have labeled me OCD, I commit all out effort when undertaking a challenge.

Example: Taking up a meditation practice to heal, I sat five hours a day for five years.

That’s what it took to heal, half measures did nothing.

It is how my mind functions, how it survived daily childhood abuse.

Surviving childhood trauma developed an incredible ability to endure hardship in the face of terror.

My thoughts were about unworthiness, avoiding and escaping.

I was consumed with myself, my suffering and possible healing.

Healing changed that focus.

Now, my compassion center has opened wide, I feel others pain and suffering.

I have day dreams of being able to alleviate suffering of our homeless and all children.

I carry this helpless feeling, not having the resources to change any of this suffering.

Look at the world, refugees suffering everywhere, poverty, corruption and war dominate.

In America our politicians are more concerned with lobbyist, power and party than the poor.

Hate dominates our politics.

Sad to see rich millionaire lawyer politicians vie for absolute power.

We are lost, most are on a journey to accumulate trophies, possessions and power.

Where does your mind gravitate to?
