Tales of a Double Virgo
boil it down
did you know
that the most important ingredient
for our happiness
is not time. money. a good job…..
it’s the reason we call someone when we are feeling down
want to celebrate!
the reason we talk for hours
to a friend in need.
the reason we show up
for each other.
i learned of a study
there was a group of rats alone in cages.
they were given 2 water options:
one with drugs (cocaine or heroine)
one with clean water.
the solo rats always drank the drugged water
got addicted and died.
keep in mind
those rats were ALONE.
on the other side of the room
the rats had the ultimate play land.
tunnels. colored balls. lots of friends.
they had the same 2 choices of water.
they didn’t go for the drugged water.
they had community. love. support.
i have long sought to understand what the F is happening
what space are we filling?
what lack are we making up for?
all signs are pointing to———> MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS.
community. friends. people you love and trust.
back in the early 2000’s
Portugal had a BIG drug problem.
they took some drastic measures to find REAL healing
not listening to the:
‘it’s a disease’ or ‘your brain gets hijacked’
old school thoughts about addiction.
they broke in to a totally new direction
with incredible results.
they decriminalized ALL drugs
put all of the money they used to fight, shame and punish drug users
in to their rehab.
what a beautiful thing.
there is hope for us all
i know it.
fighting creates more of the same.
support offers healing.
all we truly need is each other.
take a good look at your life.
boil it all down.
when you life reduction is finished
you look in to its pot on the stove
what do you see?
do you see happiness? love? freedom?
do you see conflict? anger? loneliness?
look at your life
boil down each aspect.
each experience. day. moment.
which ones boil down to a nutrient dense yummy sweet syrup
which ones boil down to a blackened toxic paste?
do you feel you have a community of support?
do you feel loved and supported at home and beyond?
do you have trusted people to lean on
are YOU a trusted person on to be leaned?
which water do you choose to drink from?
so many thoughts
so many questions
boil it down
all of it
may your life reduction be a delightful potion of the highest vibration.
