Elaine, thanks for the post. It’s a treat to have flesh and faces attached to these simple black sqiggles on my screen. I try to come to this cyber party often... and like so many others, sit back, quetly sipping my O2 cocktail, enjoying the lively , loving exchange of ideas and emotions that takes place here.
But this post of yours has prompted me to want to share something with you that is an important ingredient in my medicine bag. Take what you need and leave the rest behind.
Blessed are the poor.....in everything. “Poor” meaning “needy”. “Blessed” because when we are needy we reach out.....if we know what’s good for us. And it is only when we reach out do we open ourselves to others.
The “rich” ( self reliant, self sufficient, Pain free) are more likely to be islands. Establishing loving relationships with the world around them is much more difficult because they simply don’t “need” to.
The Buddist’s used the image of a bowl. The bowl’s great usefullness, it’s value, comes from it’s “emptiness”, it’s “neediness” if you will.
Blessed are the poor in spirit ...for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
Simplistic as a smile. Had not all of us “needed” relief we wouldn’t be here at this site....relating....sharing. The last thing I expected and wanted when I picked up this hand was to get the Queen of Pain....but I gotta play whats dealt.....together with my Queen of Hearts this may be a winning hand afterall.
I’m where I’m supposed to be and so are you. I pray there’s a kernal of comfort somewhere in that for you. You deserve it.
