What if an addiction is an addiction?

What if there is nothing for us to judge about the addiction of another person? What if you smoke three packs of cigarettes a day but I eat 5 pieces of cake for lunch or you gamble away your family’s money but I drink three+ glasses of alcohol every evening or you smoke marijuana and my house is filling to the brim with useless clutter or you work 24/7 and I use heroin to keep going or you shop until you drop and I watch TV for 14 hours a day?

What if in our society, there are popular and unpopular addictions and we feel sorry for some and seem to look down on others? What if we all got arrested for addictions that hurt us and I found myself in jail for eating a 1 pound box of chocolate? What if we are all just trying to find happiness?

What if it fades away?

What if, in this century, all things not done in integrity will soon fade away?

What if I am observing others doing things with little integrity and still succeeding?

What if I do not judge them or gossip about them or get angry with them or wish them bad luck but just bless them and within a few years I find that things are a bit difficult for them and their success has waned – or not?

What if my only job is to live my life with integrity?                            Marilyn

What if that is not the way it is?

By Lynne Cory

What if everything I have been told about religion, finance and politics has been untrue? What if it is a much more tangled web than we know?  What if I knew of the greed, cruelty and unfairness that is used in creating those myths and I became angry and spiteful? What if I only need to focus on my life and how I live it?  What if peace is what I strive for?
