How to avoid home business failure!
When I appreciate what I have,
I will best choose what I want.
How does this apply to 1000s of Americans and others around the world who want their hunger satisfied but are victims of greed and hatred?
This must be a trick question and no matter what answers are available they will not be what you want to hear. As long as one thinks of themselves as a victim of anything they will never be satisfied. There are many people who feel they are victims because they want everything given to them.
No, good things are good and bad things are bad, but mostly if we are honest things are not black and white, all good or all bad, but shades of grey.
But cutsie sayings about how everybody just needs to learn how to be satisfied and everything will be ok lull us into a false sense that if we just change our attitude we will see “it’s all good”. This opiate is how the “haves” attempt to make the ” have nots” think “it’s me, I need to learn to be satisfied as a second class citizen.”
There is imagination and there is reality. It’s imagination to think we don’t need to be concerned about our fellow human beings. That there are no problems to fix and it’s really all about their learning to be satisfied.
People living in poverty in a society geared towards benefiting the wealthy can’t be fed, find jobs, afford education or health care and become contributing members of society just by learning to be satisfied with being oppressed. These people aren’t looking for handouts, just an equal opportunity to build their lives and families.
Being grateful is very important to our mental health. But we also need to look outside ourselves at the unsatisfying things that have been put in place and try to be the agent of change that moves things towards becoming more just. When that happens true, not imagined, satisfaction will take place.
I’ve had people do wrong things to me in my life. Several were Major wrong doings.
One might say that I was victimized or harmed by each of these clever slobs.
Some losses were easier to absorb than others. Some I simply dealt / deal with and
There are two essential truths about it in how I define myself to myself and the world around me.
1 Being victimized on these several occasions was each time a simple historical event worthy of being set right in some FINITE AND HONEST MANNER, RATHER THAN AN INFINITE AND SLEAZY/ CLEVER MANNER.
2 NOT BEING A ”VICTIM” in my mind or how I communicate directly and indirectly is the other.
I observe that “being a victim” or VICTIMOLOGY is quite a treacherous art form… you
dig up goodies, and just keep on taking and taking , years, decades, even generations
after any type of justice and reparation is long drained.
