The sheer range of suffering humans under-go down here is mind boggling and thinking of my relatively unscathed course through life makes me wonder if I've somehow, at sometime, missed any valuable lessons through not suffering to the degree others have via terrorism, war, hunger disease etc.
Feeling a bit unsettled at the moment but glad I saw this video.
My dad always tells me that no matter how tough life is, there's always other people who have got it worse. If you've come through life unscathed then that suggests you've made good life choices and perhaps had a bit of good luck, and there's nowt wrong with that. My heart sinks for the plight of some mental patients, their lot seems both tragic and never-ending. I think there's something in the air at the moment, like things are building up to something. I've been feeling like that since reading the latest C's session, like we're gonna be plunged into something worse again. I don't usually feel like that, so I'm being ever careful and watchful in life at the moment.
One thing's for sure, there's never been a more opportune time to "clean house". I doodled a sketch the other day idly, then the picture caught my eye. It was of a man wearing a crafty expression, and he was tapping his wristwatch. My subconscious was relaying something to me, maybe "it's time" . Time to get cracking and get into good shape too, in order to face the challenges of the future with a soul ready for the fight.
