¡We can no longer be a bunch of empty minds living in critical times refusing to recognize real lies!

FRIENDS DON'T...ENEMIES WON'T...

Many of my FRIENDS tend to forget that I am a unique person whose attributes, attitude AND perspectives are to be admired even if they do not fully gel with their own. For this reason I tend to seek out uniqueness in others AND relish in their individuality AND differences. However, as of late I find myself shying away from people because I can NO longer make excuses for the life they live; and I am NOT about being anyone’s moral compass. Call me crazy, but I thought that being a TRUE friend meant that I should see you as my equal? Nonetheless, I’ve to come to realize that I have to be a friend to myself first and foremost. Hence I try to live for the GREATER cause. I find that SO many of my friends seem to OVERLOOK the FACT that we’re part of something greater than ourselves. So if we all are about LIVING a life that is worth something, I can’t in all in consciousness keep the close contact with certain friends of mine. I find that most of them focus on the short-term, that tangible gain that drives them…all for what? So do I really have any choice but to expand my mind so that I can transcend the distinction between self and them? Why should I SACRIFICE myself and maintain a relationship that ONLY seeks the scraps that life offers? I would like to think that me deciding to NOT be what friends think I should be a good thing since I am honoring them with MY honesty. Isn’t it? I live a life that offers VERY little room for fear OR doubt. So if my choosing is to actually LIVE, why would anyone want to be punished because they are not? Just shows me that as humans we take what we need and the other stuff we cast aside because it does not serve our purpose; and that would be all good with me but…Life is all about growth AND evolution so if I am pulling my friends across the fence with me and all they do is weigh themselves down, what should I do? I get my place in the human system AND I understand the order of things; yet it HURTS me to walk away, but what choice do I have? I can’t continue to bring persons with me that hurt themselves AND call it life when it is NOT! It is a KNOWN fact that ALL actions have CONSEQUENCES and it is OUR responsibility to be good to karma because it can bite you in the ass later. Yet my friends would rather that I compromise myself so they can feel better about themselves when they know that I can’t. I guess the notion that the OLDER we get, the more JADED we become is true…Pity most of us don’t change as the seasons change AND progress…I am NOT about forcing others to do as I see fit. The only thing I have control over is MY inner thoughts AND outer actions. And I can provide information, influence AND suggestions, but the desire to live decent human lives must come from them…FRIENDSHIP TO ME IS AN EPITOME OF WHOLENESS & INTEGRATION, WITH A WARM SPOT IN THE CENTER THAT’S THE SYMBOLIZATION OF OUR COLLECTIVE SPIRITS. LIKE A CANDLE USED TO LIGHT ANOTHER, THE CONNECTION THAT RESULTS GOES BEYOND TIME N’ SPACE…HOWEVER, I AM THE LIGHT THAT HAS TO KEEP ILLUMINATING THE OTHERS BECAUSE THEY REFUSE TO TRY. THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS & I BELIEVE WE CAN INDEED CHANGE, BUT I NEED MEN & WOMEN THAT ARE READY…SO AS I WALK THROUGH THE WORLD, I HOPE THAT REALIZE THAT MY REAL FRIENDS DON’T EXPLANATION FOR WHO I AM & MY ENEMIES WON’T EVER BELIEVE IN ME…SO THEY’LL HAVE TO CHOOSE A SIDE, I KNOW I HAVE…

  2. I think you are right to start and inface the attitude toward yourself by looking at you as a friend. This is the first STEP to true happiness. How can we overpass this step ?
    I your case my dear friend, I am sure you will make this STEP to happen as your FIRST PRIORITY.
    I learn so much about life and myself since I first knew you. I thank you very much for all that.
    From your Friend from Canada who really consider as a very good friend.
    Take care and continue your very nice work.

  3. I know exactly how you feel. Carrying others though life can be debilitating. At some point, we must decide whether we are to pursue absolute freedom or continue carrying "dead" weight. What I've found is that people are forced to make a decision when more responsible persons remove themselves from the equation. I am inclined to welcome the return of a friend who has seen the error of her/his ways and made the necessary corrections. Be good, man.

  6. OTHERS SEE THE LIGHT, OTHERS ARE BLIND, OTHERS NEED TO BE HELD BY THE HAND SO THEY CAN FIND THEIR WAY, AND EVENTUALLY THEY DO. AND OTHERS? LOST CAUSE. WHAT CAN WE SAY? C'EST LA VIE. IT HAS BEEN SO SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME, AND SO SHALL IT BE TILL THE END.

    UNFORTUNATELY, SOME WILL STILL BE FEELING THEIR WAY RIGHT THROUGH TO THE END, WITH FINAL BELLS RINGING & APOCALYPSE ON THEIR DOORSTEPS & THE SON OF MAN SENDING OTHERS TO THE PIT.(laughing outrageously)

    BUT THE WORLD NEEDS WARRIORS LIKE YOURSELF, OTHERWISE WE'RE IN TROUBLE.

    THIS WAS ON MY MIND YESTERDAY, THOUGH MY ANGLE WAS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT.

  8. WE'RE ONLY HUMAN, WHO WOULDN'T GET TIRED? WE GET TIRED, GET PISSED OFF, BUT EVENTUALLY WE CALM DOWN AND START THE PROCESS ALL OVER. WHY? BECAUSE IT'S IN US. YOU ARE WHO YOU ARE.

  9. MAYBE YOU DON'T DO IT WITH THE SAME GROUP OF PEOPLE BECAUSE THEIR EARS HAVE LIDS THAT SIMPLY REFUSE TO OPEN, PERHAPS BECAUSE THEY'RE GLUED ON WITH EXTRA STRONG SUPERGLUE(?), BUT YOU'LL DO IT WITH OTHERS.

  11. In have a Dear friend that I think is on the same page as me. She told me that she get's angry with me after some deep convos. I think it is because I tell her exacty what she refuses to see. I agree with you, I will just work more on myself and give advice when asked for. I cannot passify my friends and I do not want to be passified.

  13. Being who you are and knowing who u are means that u have a purpose and u are serving that purpose. A real friend will be there for you just as much as u are there for them....or will at least make an attempt. Sometime circumstances won't allow someone to be there for u the way they would want to be. You have to look at their heart. And if u cant see it then they aren't a friend. They are just someone who is riding you coat tales. eventually they will fall off because your going too fast and too far for them to follow. So dont ever feel bad. We take along people in this journey of life who have the desire to continue it with us. The rest will find their own way. Or just wall by the way side. I say just let them be.

  14. We just have to always ask ourselves is this who we are...not who we want to be? To just kinda bring ourselves back to reality.

  17. There's no greater power than the power of goodbye

    Saying goodbye isn't a bad thing - just have to honor the fact that some people will not be with you forever but that they will be there for some part of your journey and hopefully you benefit each other but only few persons are in your life for a lifetime - that in itself would be a privilege.
