Big Issues London











"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’ Living In The Solution

My World - Climate

In my world of DonInLondon, in London UK its been a couple of grey days and the lack of sun feels like a heavy weight. We are animals after all and we forget we are of nature as much as we are feeling and thinking beings.

Where some in the world would crave cold and clouds, the more temperate climates would love some more sun.

We want what we don’t have?

Maybe this is a part of our human make up, we want more of what we feel better having. And weather is usually a good barometer of grumpy behaviour as much as warm and giving behaviour.

Dark

As we of nature we are still excited by the dark of living. It offers fear and ways to overcome, it can be welcoming when we burrow and make warm places we call home and safe.

Yet we prefer light. We do best in the light and dark is a time for nocturnal goings on. Some delicious and some about rest from endeavours. Much about fear when we have no campfire to call home.

Boundaries, we seem always to push our boundaries. We are best when we feel at ease, have love in our lives and love certainly conquers all.

Control

As we are taught to control, we do control, it’s a subtle blend of nature and nurture as we make our way. How is it we fear loss of control, that we make our known universe our prison and we still endeavour and crave adventures? Are we mad? Not so!

We are at odds often with our feelings which encourage one way and our thinking and nurture which say another. Almost like an internal battle of right and wrong going on in heads. We need find there is no right or wrong, that we learn a path which fits us. And then we see the right and wrong of it if we are so gifted.

Prisons in the mind - Good conscience

Good conscience is no prison, and yet it defines the acceptable of living and the unacceptable. We humans so conflicted as we form civilisation and deal with our inner natures. No wonder the path to hell is paved with good intent.

Colossus

Nature takes us where it will, not our will as many would prefer. And that colossus is held fast by generations of struggle to add meaning and purpose to our living.

Simply to find love, and live a life.

As time impacts on weary journey’s we look for safe havens. We seek stories and adventures from time and endorsements to our being. If we are lucky we find truth is God, and God is truth, God made man and man made God.

There is no disappointment in living, more likely its ending with so much lost to future times as we dreamed away these moments of now, stuck between memories and adventures not yet lived.

Now is our ever present, present moment, best lived as human being.




25th October 2006 [ from last years journal]

[from Don] Smiles here XXXXX,

when the mood and inclination come, there is never a rush and only when the time feels appropriate. It does become easier after we realise it is ok to say just a few words, and often the least said the better it is, as people keep telling me!

Shy sharing

Well I didn’t ! Smiles here I kept to my word, not that I had any intention, but suddenly realised there a lot of new faces and it meant there time not mine. Quite frankly is was good to sit and hear everything.

For me [my fellowship meeting of AA]

Great connection to everything said tonight. The most important affirming the patience needed for any change we may make to become recovering alcoholics and stay long enough to realise that time is the key. With time we can change, we can make a difference and we do learn if we are willing.

Denial and honesty play heavy in my head so often. Less often at the moment. And this is another key. As denial was a great asset, so now to honesty and being where I felt best all my life. And how sad so many distortions have been made as the years roll along. Although without denial there would be no measure of honesty.

In this world we are given every gift we can envisage and imagine, and utilise. The good of nature and our bad of nature. The polemic of life, that we all have, where self will drives and narrows us, and free from self will our wildest dream is not merely a possibility it is a reality. For indeed as we go with life and flow with good choices made with freedom, the path is as providence and nature enables.

So with a sensitive reflection and with more understanding and compassion for all of humanity, which somehow today includes me, forgiveness of our human condition is also a key.

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.
