So, I am worried about Man.

I was listening to a song on the internet, yes big surprise, and I thought about how I am pretty much failing college, going to be kicked out and how my parents are going to be so pissed but I really don't care. I always thought about running away and leaving my life behind, but I decided I could never do that to my family. Especially now. So I listened to a song I showed my best friend when she was having a really hard time in high school and there was more than the usual drama in her life (her life is dramatic like most people but there were some people that were causing extra trouble). I remembered why I showed her the song in the first place, it was the lyrics I always took to heart whenever I listened to that song:

"There, there, baby
Its justtext bookstuff
Its in the ABC of growing up
Now, now, darlin
Oh dont lose your head
'Cause none of us were angels
And you know I love you, yeah."

Imogen Heap, Speeding Cars

And for the rest of that year whenever things got hard I would sing her thatsnippetof the song because that was always the best thing I could do for her. I couldn't wave a wand and make the problems go away. All I could do was assure her that things would get better and that I was next to her no matter what.

But society has me worried. The greed of man is increasing at a steady rate and soon we won't be ever to satisfy the greed in our hearts. I'd be happy to get to work for my great uncle on his farm or get to garden with my grandmother. Pickingstrawberrieswhen I was younger was fun enough (they have to red but not too red), and then we got paid for the strawberries we picked (and we got to keep them I think...Idon'tquite remember, I was about 6). I kind of want a simple life but everyone else wants to make life a competition, and I have had enough of competitions.

Hi Kim, the only person you have to compete with is yourself. Se your goals and do the best you can to reach them. That is all any of us can do really. I know for me knowing I was empath at a young age I would have done things differently growing up. I know there is a lot on your plate with school but treat this also as a school. You have a VERY BIG support group here and I suggest you use it. I know I am.

Over the last few days I've been contemplating how spirit wants man kind to make a more direct path to a state of pure love. That's a pretty tall order considering that we live in a world of me first complicated by greed and materialistic ideals. I don't consider myself to be a greed based individual but on the other hand there are things that I would like to have without having to fight so hard to achieve. And some of those things are more luxury items then real needs and then I kind of chastise myself for being just a bit greedy. Life is certainly tough, but I agree with your sentiments here and wish the path of spiritual growth was an easier one for all of us!

Kimberly, you obviously like to write, 31 blogs and counting. This is just my opinion, but I think you should put more effort in writing because, one, you seem to enjoy it. And second because I just get the feeling that you have a great many things piling up in your psyche that need to be unleashed.

I think you should also write letters to your local paper and magazines in your area about things that concern you. And you might even want to open another blog site outside of Emapth Community as well. Just a thought. I'm also sending you a friend request, how is it that you only have one friend?
