Hold on.. HELP!

Interesting that song lyric have been popping into my mind relating to experiences lately. Today, I visited someone who is detoxing. I am praying this person will relate to the last line copied above.

I discussed the issues humans have juxtaposing SHAME and PRIDE. Shame binds us from believing we are worthy of _________ and pride keeps us from asking for __________.

Annoying to have philosophic conundrums whirling around my brain w/o any discussion.. help!!!


Let it be.. let it be.. just me sitting here.. just me.
I want to set these aside my thoughts but I cannot
being drowned by thought after thought.

Catching life through outstretched fingers
so much slips through and is lost

Someone will die fighting for life and another gives it away
which one is more valued, who can say, who will say?  

no resolution no understanding and I am left, I am left auguring in and climbing up ©

Can you call your job work or a job when you love it?

 I have been been asked, "How can you do the work you do?". 

Yesterday.. amidst the silence as I let a long pause "hang" the patient asked, "May I tell you something?" 

I replied, "Of course.". and as we were less than a foot apart.. him laying in his bed..
my hand on his arm.. he told me something.. and then said, "I've never told anyone that before.".

What's it all about?

What's it all about, Alfie?
Is it just for the moment we live?
What's it all about when you sort it out, Alfie?
Are we meant to take more than we give
Or are we meant to be kind?
And if only fools are kind, Alfie,
Then I guess it's wise to be cruel.
And if life belongs only to the strong, Alfie,
What will you lend on an old golden rule?
As sure as I believe there's a heaven above, Alfie,
I know there's something much more,
Something even non-believers can believe in.
I believe in love, Alfie.
Without true love we just exist, Alfie.
Until you find the love you've missed you're nothing, Alfie.
When you walk let your heart lead the way
And you'll find love any day, Alfie, Alfie
would you tell me what's it all about?
what's it all about? Alfie, Alfie, Alfie.
What's it all about? Whats this all about?
what's it all about Alfie? tell me
what's it all about Alfie? what's it all about Alfie?
just tell me yeah. what's it all about?
what's it all about?

Alfie..   I never really liked this song, no matter who was singing. Maybe that's because I never liked how it was being sung so I never HEARD the lyric.

For some unknown reason this song popped into my mind this morning [pretty odd experience I must say. Now that I have read the lyric. Maybe not such a horrible song after all.
