” YOU NEED NOT DROWN IN THE RIVER OF LIFE WHEN YOU ENCOUNTER THE STRONG STORMS OF TRIALS. LEARN TO BE AN EXPERT BOATMAN AND YOU CAN ROW ACROSS THIS TUMULTUOUS RIVER TO THE SAFE SHORES OF GOD. ‘HE THAT ENDURETH TO THE END SHALL BE SAVED’ (MATTHEW 10:22). AS YOU WORK AND PLAN, REMEMBER THAT IT IS GOD WHO IS WORKING THROUGH YOU. YOUR MIND SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH JOY AND DETACHED FROM ALL UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCES. BE ACTIVE, BUT NOT CONSTANTLY ACTIVE; RELAX COMPLETELY WHEN NOT ACTIVE. STRENGTHEN YOUR WILL POWER SO THAT YOU WILL NOT BE CONTROLLED BY CIRCUMSTANCES, BUT WILL CONTROL THEM. DEVELOP YOUR WILL POWER BY STRIVING TO DO THINGS THAT YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD NOT DO. WORK FOR OTHERS. THUS WILL YOU DEVELOP ENDURANCE AND STRENGTH.”
I have these little pocket-sized cards for different topics. The card, Endurance, I have copied verbatim for you [above].
I read this damn thing 50 or 100 times today while going through some personal health drama.
Detaching from all unpleasant experiences is damn fuckin’ hard man. It is hard to detach when I know I am not the only person going through what appears to be a lack of actual “health” or “CARE” in our Nations healthCARE system… and it feels as though there is nothing I can solidly do about it.
It is hard to detach when what I see around me is a bunch of sociopathic control freaks running our healthCARE system, that are systematically removing the CARE from healthCARE. Fucking sphincters [assholes].
And now our Government wants to force me to pay for this shitty excuse of a medical industry so that a bunch of sad excuses for [un]human beings can continue to profit on the death and destruction of fellow American Citizens? American Citizens that these individuals profess to give a shit about…? Hmmmmm Sounds fishy to me, and I don’t mean the good kind.
I am not being controlled by my circumstances because I know what my rights are and I know the difference between right and wrong, however, there are many people who do NOT know what their rights are and do NOT know how to defend themselves and their families when things go terribly wrong.
I do not believe in constantly being in a state of FIGHT or FLIGHT, however: There is a time to flight [run] and a time to Fight [stand up for yourself and others] and this is one of those times.
Just because I am a generally peaceful & joyful person, this does not mean I will not become a she-bitch triple-headed dragon when injustice and unethical behavior is being tossed around and disguised as “CARE”.
So, I endure…
I endure the injustice,
I endure the unethical behavior,
I endure the sociopaths in charge of MY healthCARE,
I endure the fake compassion I receive in place of the genuine concern I was falsely advertised,
I endure the few in positions of power figuratively and literally ‘raping and pillaging’ the very people these individuals were sworn to protect and serve.
What a racket.
What a fucking racket. HeathCARE system. What a joke.
I see no heath and I see no care. All I see is Lazy, fearful and ignorant behavior oooozing from the pores of those in positions of power.
Enduring trials and tribulations is NOT the same as burying your head in the sand and being just plain complacent.
-an American Citizen that has rights [even if, as a society, we have forgotten this fact]
enjoy my generalities. And if you are not like this and you really do CARE in the healthCARE system…then it is about time you fuckers stand up for the rest of us!!! Since you KNOW BETTER, YOU have MORE responsibility…NOT LESS.
Believe it or not, I am not really emotionally worked up about this anymore…I am slipping into an apathetic disgust. Not sure which is worse.
you know, Jesus endured a lot…but he sure as hell didn’t turn a blind eye to unjust and unhealthy and uncompassionate behavior…HE POINTED THAT SHIT OUT.
so…wWjd [what WOULD jesus do]?
