the laborer’s contributions
On this weekend celebration of the laborer’s contributions, I present you with my calling:
Life is a series of challenges that one must resolve in order to survive. Courage is required. Courage, persistence and personal power. Each of us has developed methods, habits to take care of ourselves, to increase our strength, to remain virile. Yes, even children. I have been speaking to people, in one manner or another for a great deal of my life. I have spoken to children who were troubled, unloved and abused, to prisoners, to people who just can't take this crazy world we live in, or who can take it only in moderate doses, people who desperately need someone to listen, to really listen, to care, people alone, as I am alone, as we are all alone, wanting to reach out, to connect, seeking answers. I have spoken to people who have truly humbled me with their courage, their wisdom, to people who are dying, old, cancerous, victims of AIDS, to people suffering catastrophic loss to their body.
It is my method, my habit to listen to you, to help in what manner I can, to lend a hand, to open my heart and my mind, to truly listen, to stand by your side, to respect you, to behave in an ethical manner, and to love you, to apply all the knowledge, the power, the wisdom I've developed to assist you. I am committed to you. Together, we seek a further understanding of the mysteries that surround us, of our vulnerabilities, we speak of love, no matter who, no matter what the situation, death, dismemberment, imprisonment, illusions, hallucinations, we speak of love, love, we want love. Our conversations continue only so long as we have a task to accomplish, a goal. We are workers in the field of love. It is the great mystery. A secret is imparted in love, one no longer struggles, is at peace, the world sparkles, how to get back there? Love imparts an energy that makes us strong, invulnerable, able to create harmony among others, it returns us to a state of childlike innocence and it flows from us to the world. A circle, the correct path, doors open, psychic energy is unleashed, the proper connections are made.
You and I together create this energy, and it spreads. It is where my heart resides. It is my energy, my power source.
