"The Big Issue"

The Big Issue Foundation's core ethos is self help. We offer support to homeless and socially excluded people who seek to gain control of their lives and help them move off the streets and into a home and a job.We work with over 2000 vendors across the UK, supporting them with a diverse program of opportunities either delivered through our own services or in partnership with specialist agencies. Each new vendor has a Needs Assessment, and from this an individual action plan is set, which is monitored in supervision sessions with support staff.





Ghandi

There come to us moments in life when about some things we need no proof from without. A little voice within us tells us, 'You are on the right track, move neither to your left nor right, but keep to the straight and narrow way.

A person falsely claiming to act under divine inspiration or the promptings of the inner voice without having any such, will fare worse than the one falsely claiming to act under the authority of an earthly sovereign. Whereas the latter on being exposed will escape with injury to his body, the former may perish body and soul together.

You have to believe no one but yourselves. You must try to listen to the inner voice, but if you will not have the expression"inner voice", you may use the expression "dictates of reason", which you should obey, and if you will not parade God, I have no doubt you will parade something else which in the end will prove to be God, for, fortunately, there is no one and nothing else but God in this universe.

For me truth is the sovereign principle, which includes numerous other principles. This truth is not only truthfulness in word, but truthfulness in thought also, and not only the relative truth of our conception, but the Absolute Truth, the Eternal Principle, that is God. There are innumerable definitions of God, because His manifestations are innumerable. They overwhelm me with wonder and awe and for a moment stun me.

DonInLondon - ‘Day In the Life’ Truth Will Set Us Free

Fear

Something we have in us as nature intended. That is the ability to fear what we encounter and fear life generally. It can become overwhelming and we can be overly fearful of what we do and the consequences.

Consequences

When we fear hurt from others and have been hurt by others obviously we do fear some relationships may head the same way. And we become cautious and don’t tell the truth in case we are wrong and worse don’t ask for truth because it may be hurtful one way or another. Just simple human doings I guess.

Imagination

We all imagine everything all day long and sometimes do not see what’s in front of us. We are particularly good at wanting and not meeting our simple needs. Imagination is useful, its part of us, and sometimes we may have our head in the clouds and our feet on the ground. Dreams of what is, dreams of what if, dreams of outcomes we may prefer.

And we forget to look at the day. A bit like me sometimes and a bit like that yesterday.

Photo DonInLondon

I have my website and the photo part is emphasised quite a lot. I enjoy and like to take photo’s around London. And particularly love taking photo’s of people. Why? I guess because for me people are the fascination of life. What is going on for them, how we show the world our insides on our faces. Candid shots of people and their living and doing. These photo’s intrigue me because I will never really know their insides out.

Its been a good day or two to get back to ordinary and be a part of living in Chelsea. I am right in the centre of London, the centre part I like best. I could not have asked for a better place to pitch up and settle down if I had been in charge of the whole living accommodation thing. Somehow I find myself in the right place at the right time, and I had pretty much no control over the whole process. Is this how life is these days?

Life and the Universe

There is often much talk of God in my fellowship, the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. Odd really because if there is a god, he she or it sees everything and nothing is anonymous at all, except the illusions we prefer keep, as we still are concerned our truth may find us out?

Anonymity

In a world full of judgment and ready to mete out pain. Well its not wonder we confuse anonymity and spiritual in the fellowship of AA.

Anonymity affords Fellows of AA the opportunity to share their truth in the meetings we have. It means we are less likely to be judged and cast away just because? Because we are all still capable of judging a person harshly when in the heat of a disease which takes away our morality first and our doing last.

Anonymity is often quoted as the spiritual foundation of our fellowship. I would challenge this simply because truth is the spiritual gift and learned in so many mistakes and restarts to living.

Truth is Spiritual

As in this exact moment of seeing hearing and living truth. Denial of disease, we humans have denial as a ready and trusted friend to make truth as scarce a commodity as the rarest diamond found in the earth and as precious.

Anonymity in my experience offers our best shot at finding our truth, anonymity is a state of being which enables some who would otherwise stand no chance of spiritual, getting a leg up to where truth spiritual exists in our conscious being.

I may be misinformed or misjudging, I do care one way or another, as truth spiritual makes for a better way to live than denial and brave facing my existence.

More later, maybe…




September 16th 2006 [ all about last year ]

Thick Head

My head was thick with sleep this morning. After months of insomnia and other restless nocturnal twists and turns sleep is something I had not expected.

I had breakfast and got myself together and out for a meeting at 8:30 AM. And good to see a friend in the fellowship in fact more than one, who I was worried about. I need not have been as worried. So its ok.

And then I had a hypo on the way home, my blood sugar went really low and just made it back. Not good. And sort of messed up plans for the rest of the day. I have been wanting to see a friend of mine and have had to postpone.

A large glass of orange juice and lunch sorted me out and had a sleep. It did help me get my feet back on the ground.

But my head is still spaced out. I reckon it’s the pain relief making me groggy and ill at ease. I have less pain from neuropathy, but know the vagueness is back and I am uncertain how long this transition may be, and my marbles are restored.

Never mind, its just a day at a time…

AA - A Personal View



Be Tolerant

You have the power to tolerate anyone and any situation. But tolerance is not just suffering in silence.

It means going beyond any personal discomfort you may feel, and giving a gift to whom ever you would tolerate. Give your time, attention, understanding, compassion, care - all are gifts, which paradoxically, you also receive in the process of giving.

And, as you do, you will experience your own self esteem and inner strength grow. In this way you can turn tolerance into strength.
