That; the enemy is us, is so marginal. Should not unwell people seek happiness despite their weaknesses?
In the NA fellowship, we are considered sick, rather than bad. If someone has a stigma that lowers their self esteem, then that very blemish ascribes a lower status in society, just like the lepers of old. They were liberated by Jesus' love. That vision is BEYOND the status of humanity as defective.
It is no fault of their own. In fact, many people have sickness of mind and/or body. That is no reason to ascribe a spiritually "homeless" condition to those who are not personally at fault. The line is very,very thin between sick, and outright bad according to merciless philosophies. Today, it is a shame to denounce others due to any lesser conditions of living.
I am amazed that judgement can be so lean on the inside of people's minds. I don't subscribe to such persecution-type ridicule. That is so empty of human kindness. No one could be gentle and brave without the accompanying compassion that comes with years of application. Yes, I said application. It is a self-taught practice that grows stronger and sweeter with such years of practice. I am still working upon my "automatic" belligerence that is no good for anyone, even myself.
So, again I greet the day, weak, yet determined to stay at inner peace (a very hard job). Life is tough for us old folks while our bodies decay a bit everyday. So, cheer up, the next dawn is the cherished goal of sanctity, (a whole person).
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.
