Hello every One, welcome to the Wednesday Witches, Wizards and Warlocks Edition of the Good News Journal, thank You for being here. Today I met a young lady who is war King on her bachelor degree as an addiction counsellor and We began tall King about how difficult the addiction Issue is to address – nobody really seems to know what the answer might be, including Me.
Well, as is often the case in My Microcosm where there are no coincidences, when I returned home a Friend had shared a TED talks video on one of My Facebook pages dealing with addiction. I knew the video was one I was meant to share with My audience the moment Johann suggested the solution was connection in the community, and Living a Life with Purpose.
After watching the video, the solution seemed so obvious. There are a lot of parallels between Johann’s proposed solution to addiction and My proposed solution for ending homelessness. I believe the moment those subject to poverty and homelessness believe their Life has Value and meaning is the moment those individuals Will Wish to Give back to the community. It would seem the solution is similar for addiction.
Very much like the Way I have proposed the taxpayer money spent to manage homelessness by contracting with emergency shelters would be much better spent getting the same individuals into dignified housing, Johann proposes that by decriminalizing all drugs and using the money allocated to policing addiction to create social programs designed to Give addicts purpose and meaning in their lives would not only be less costly, it might actually work.
Waking up every day with a Lust for Life is an intoxicating experience. And according to Johann, potentially more intoxicating than heroin or cocaine!
I am going to Keep this Post short today, but I thought this was a video well worth sharing. I Keep suggesting that if every One were Living their Life with determination and purpose, virtually all of Our world’s most critical moral Issues might be resolved. If Living a Purpose Full Life can have this kind of effect on a heroin or cocaine addict, Imagine what kind of effect it could have on other mental health issues like depression and anxiety many People Keep hidden and deal with in isolation.
We all have something of value to contribute to society. I believe when each of Us are able to pursue Our Life purpose and encouraged to do so, it Will have a transformational effect on Our planet.
I hope You are all having a fabulous week and a wonderful, ‘Lucky’ Wednesday.
Love and Blessings,
