Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

person in blue denim jeans standing on brown soil

My heart bleeds buckets 
as I continue to walk the mountains and think of you
I carry 2 buckets  up the hill… 1 for me  and 1 for you

I stop to do what I can 
some ready for the offering
others lost or there for the taking

I continue to walk 
wishing I could do more 
but more is never enough

I carry your blood and then more of mine
I pass a wishing well and throw a penny and a blessing
My longing never stops

While I may appear stoic
it’s true ….
If I stop I would be devoid of life…. so I walk 

I pause to for a glimmer of hope but move on to
who might need a hand. 
Love is sometimes walking away even when your blood bleeds black

I wrote this poem as I was walking up the mountain the other day and thinking about my brother who has lived with schizoid affective disorder for most of his life and is in a psychotic state as I write this. He left his facility and took to the streets last year when Covid started and 4 months later he was able to find housing in a board and care facility with others that suffer from mental illness. He left his next one again on the 4th of July. My heart aches for him and my mother and his adult children; 2 of which have mental health issues as well. One of my nephews is 34 and has lived in a facility for 12 -14 years. My other nephew, 32, lives on the street in Southern California with his mother. Luckily my niece who is the youngest has broken away (kudos to you ) and is working and going to school and left the area but suffers from PTSD.

It is truly heartbreaking to witness and see someone you love live this nightmare and to feel so helpless. I have learned over the years that my own mental health suffers when I get over involved. I have also learned to love from a distance with boundaries which constantly pulls at my heartstrings but is necessary for my well being.

It is particularly difficult being in my field where I help people discover their truths and inner wisdom so I feel particularly helpless. My heart goes out to any of you that suffer from this horrific illness personally or have family members that do. I truly get it and my heart bleeds with yours. Take good care of you, do what you can and know your limits❣️

Thanks so much for visiting today. The world needs us to take such good care of ourselves that we might be a beacon of hope for others. Loving without judgement or attachment is one of the greatest challenges.

Blessings of love to you and all of those you love and a special prayer of protection for my brother.

Thanks from the bottom of my heart,

💖🙏

Cindy

Oh, it’s too hard to hear that my dear Cindy. My clotted blood has started streaming thru my eyes to read this poem n this post of heartfelt deep feelings fallen from a kind heart. I can emphasize very much as I too have a sister resting in the heaven who had lived such hell of life since her 5th year of birth until her last breath. My prayers for them and all those are suffering with such difficulties in the world. Dear God touch them, bless them all n heal their pain right away, your name will be glorified. In the name of Lord my God. Amen. 🙏❤

Cindy, best wishes my friend. Your poem is heartfelt, but the story beneath is heart absorbing. We are care takers to a relative who has challenges, but is managing pretty well and lives close by. Yet, some of the conversations around the “sticking thinking” as the therapist paints it, is illuminating. I wish you the very best to be strong and wise, knowing when to push the accelerator, when to coast and when to apply the brakes in he relationships. Take care, Keith

Dear Cindy, I feel sorry, so truely sorry to hear about your brother and his families suffering. Life can appear truely harsh to some at times. If my wishes can change anything they are all with them right now.

Your viewpoint seems correct too. Beyond what you can do, you have to live for yourself also, and for all others that are attached to you too. Life can pause momentarily but cannot stop.

Your poem is poignant and truely beautiful, but I think the message of this post is beyond the poem.

Take care 💖

This is heartbreaking and beautiful all at the same time <3. It's good that you have created boundaries. I can totally appreciate how it would pull at you. But it's necessary. You cannot risk compromising your mental health. No one can. I admire you for exercising that kind of strength, love, and openness. It's refreshing and there needs to be more of that in the world. Sending lots of prayers your way as you continue your journey and extra prayers for your brother and family <3. May you continue to stay strong, loving, open, and be a bright light 🙂

💜 If; a Poem By Rudyard Kipling Being Paraphrased For Gender Neutrality

‘If you can keep your head when all about you, Are losing theirs and blaming it on you

If you can trust yourself when all people doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about; don’t deal in lies

Or being hated; don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good; nor talk too wise

If you can dream and not make dreams your master, If you can think and not make thoughts your aim

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster, And treat those two impostors just the same

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken, Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools

Or watch the things you gave your life to broken, And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools

If you can make one heap of all your winnings, And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss

And lose and start again at your beginnings, And never breathe a word about your loss

If you can encourage your heart and nerve and sinew, To serve your turn long after they are gone

And so hold on when there is nothing in you, Except the Will which says to them “Hold On!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Monarchs nor lose the common touch

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all folk count with you but none too much

If you can fill the unforgiving minute, With sixty seconds worth of distance run

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it , And which is more you’ll be Evolved, My Child’

Cindy, I know so well how it feels to look on helplessly while someone you love self destructs. It means a lot to me that you have shared your experiences and this beautiful heartfelt poem. The imagery is very powerful. When you talk about not allowing yourself to be destroyed, I think about what my sister says, “I will swim beside you, but I won’t let you pull me down.” All the best, Cindy! <3

As a doctor, I encounter many such patients, friends, and relatives in my personal and professional life. One needs lots of patience and good counseling skills to patients and especially for his relatives to handle such situations and circumstances of life.Off course spiritual teaching , yoga ,pranayama etc are of great help.Ok Good bye and have a nice day.💐💐💐💐💐🙏 Namaskar
