Crunchy ground….crunchy thoughts….

I have the tendency to get sucked down the path of…everyone knows better than me…

Perhaps it is due to my history….Perhaps it is due to loss…Perhaps it is due a basic conception that I have been taught to not trust this self….this being…

And it appears to be validated daily….

One struggling will believe that all it takes is positive thinking…meditation and calling onto the forces of love…and that will make tranquility…

That the mire will abate…and one will now be in the land of splendor…

But does that really happen….?

One basic principle of those floundering and thus stepping into success is this…

Basic human needs were met….the basics…

Food…Drink..Shelter…clothing…Safety…

If those are not met….incomplete steps will be on display….

So those who have “made it”…

Made it by having all those needs met….

They did not have to worry about feeding themselves or their children…keeping the lights on…or how were they going to sleep under a bush….with the added bonus attraction of freezing temps or rain….

It is easy…quite easy…with maybe a shot to the ego…to say I got 6.00 in my pocket and I am worried about the light bill…and dinner for tonight…when you have FAMILY…because no matter how messed up you are…they will make sure nobody goes hungry and as an added bonus…buy you a cell phone…with a shot of shame…BONUS…

No matter what the disturbance…you will be covered…because you have coverage…

You have a support system…you have a net…you have a self help guru…you have your positive affirmations…your cheerleaders…you got it made…

So it is easier…to tout the great program one has made to be the millionaire…guru..relationship master…how to go from Ice Queen to Loving Baby Doll 10 days or less….with 6 simple steps…all for 99.00…

Quite easy…

But how do you do it…with nothing…except this heart…?

It is a near impossibility…

And those people we shame and judge and give praise to the movie star…

How do you explain to one who has always had…about one…who has never had…

How do you tell one who grew up abused…had no shoes until they were 9…which sucks in cold weather…barely had 4 maybe 5 meals a week…that…

If they just think right…all will appear…like fairy dust…sprinkled on my head…and my attitude will adjust itself…

Why do we not tell people…the truth…?

Because it is so much easier to ignore the struggle, because it is not your struggle…

And why oh why would you be bothered with someone..whom you believe…does not have the right attitude…why…?

Success involves support…

Success involves cheerleaders…

Success involves daily food..drink…shelter and safety….a place to rest my head…a reason to continue on…

Everyone I read about who has made it…and is now touting the “WAY” to get it done…had all those things and more….

It is great to do the diet to get fit and make your body strong…when…

You have food…money to buy shoes, workout gear..gym memberships…

Try getting fit when you have no place to rest your head…you eat sporadically..you work just enough…to feed yourself and keep gas in the car..to keep it warm while you try to rest…

It is easy to teach programs and give special pricing discounts on how to get money…be a millionaire…live a rich and famous lifestyle…when…

You got the backup…the start up…those who will support you…feed you…listen to you…

Try it with standing on the corner..literally begging for food….

Or having to live in a space that is unsafe…

Let me know how that works out for you…

It is hard…to live your dream…find your passion…love…

When you are viewed as disposable…

Fighting for truth does not work…we have become a society that no longer wants to hear the truth…or follow any rules…

We want what we want…when we want it damn it…

The only thing that works…

Is the one thing we all crave..demand…and yet toss aside easily….

LOVE….

Love is not that feeling of sitting at a table with an satiated full belly…adoring one for the hot meal…that is just a high..an extra for being in the path of love…

Love is this…

Sharing your knowledge…for free…

Sharing your food…with no conditions…

Love is direct and to the point…it does not mince words…it is straight up…

it says things like…

No I cannot let you get into that car…you have been drinking…

It says…

No I cannot get you that gaming system or take you out for fast food…I have the power bill to pay…and groceries to buy…

It says…

Put down the cell phone when driving or I will take it away…before you take away your life…

It says…

You cannot do this alone…you are not meant to do this alone…and there is plenty…

It says LISTEN….

I dare you….
