More on Brent Shapiro

Statement from the site: “After eighteen months of sobriety, he thought he could experiment with alcohol. He drank at a party and took a half of a tab of Ecstasy, then he went into a coma and was buried a day and a half later.”

Do not forget this may have been suicide

Look at these two experiences:

A man from a very wealthy family went to Switzerland in 1931 to get treatment from the notable psychiatrist, Carl Jung. He spent an entire summer with the Doctor. Trying to formulate a manner of living that would not include alcohol. He left the good doctor and headed home on a cruise ship. Sad to say he was drinking while on the ship, before reaching harbor in USA. He returned to Dr. Carl Jung. This is a rendition of what was said: The doctor said: “You have the mind of a chronic alcoholic. I have never seen one single case recover, where that state of mind existed to the extent that it does in you.” Our friend felt as though the gates of hell had closed on him with a clang.

He said to the doctor, “Is there no exception?”

    “Yes,” replied the doctor, “there is. Exceptions to cases such as yours have been occurring since early times. Here and there, once in a while, alcoholics have had what are called vital spiritual experiences. To me these occurrences are phenomena. They appear to be in the nature of huge emotional displacements and rearrangements. Ideas, emotions, and attitudes which were once the guiding forces of the lives of these men are suddenly cast to one side, and a completely new set of conceptions and
motives begin to dominate them. In fact, I have been trying to produce some such emotional rearrangement within you. With many individuals the methods which I employed are successful, but I have never been successful with an alcoholic of your description.”

Roll the clock forward to January 1976 in Minneapolis MN, a psychiatrist of German decent told me the same thing.

When our minds come to the point as these two very well known psychiatrist and come to know that we are powerless over this addiction, No prohibition, no education, no laws, nor guns will heal anyone that has my illness nor the one of Rowland Hazzard, the man above. Nor will it keep anyone one from becoming afflicted with this illness. The first step is we know nothing.

Studying drugs to end addiction is the same as studying concentrated sweets to end diabetes.

Why would I send money for this venture? I will for sure send my sincere condolences

Prayer and Fasting.

Mark 9:29

So He said to them, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.”

-Qur’an Surah 2:183
Translation Al-Baqara

O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint. The translated -Qur’an to English I have, says,”Perchance you guard yourselves against evil”

I have read Mark Chapter 9 many times. Every time Christ was saying to the devote followers, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.” he meant we all must pray and use self-restraint.

More spiritual thought showing we must handle spiritual diseases in spiritual ways.

Wiretap ruling could free 12 drug suspects

Is this the way it is supposed to work? Asks a member that submitted this Kentucky story.

No these people are nothing more than Martha Stewart and Bernie Ebbers with a pistol. If we would get off this stupid idea that we can save people from themselves these people would have to get real job or at least change occupations. Nor would we keep destroying our justice system trying to stop the wrong crime.

Brent Shapiro Foundation for Drug Awareness

I have a sad heart for anyone that loses a son or daughter to a deadly disease of alcoholism/drug addiction. I wish I had kept records of the wakes I have attended of those of us that died too early of this disease, not to mention the obituaries of those I knew only they had the disease. I did not know the families to console. I have been to wakes where the only one I knew was the one in the casket.

However I do not believe setting up a foundation to raise money to spread more disinformation about this disease can possibly be the answer to resolve grief. I hold my beliefs from many years of experience and the two following quotes:Mark 9:29
And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

The quote was in red

The next from a very noted psychiatrist

Anyone who wants to know the human psyche will learn next to nothing from experimental psychology.  He would be better advised to abandon exact science, put away his scholar’s gown, bid farewell to his study, and wander with human heart throught the world.  There in the horrors of prisons, lunatic asylums and hospitals, in drab suburban pubs, in brothels and gambling-hells, in the salons of the elegant, the Stock Exchanges, socialist meetings, churches, revivalist gatherings and ecstatic sects, through love and hate, through the experience of passion in every form in his own body, he would reap richer stores of knowledge than text-books a foot thick could give him, and he will know how to doctor the sick with a real knowledge of the human soul. — Carl Jung

Little Girl

4 Little Animals

A teacher asked her class, “What do you want out of life?”

A little girl in the back row raised her hand and said, “All I want

Out of life is four little animals, just like my Mom always says”.

The teacher asked, “Really and what four little animals would that be?

” The little girl said, “A mink on my back,

a jaguar in the garage,

a tiger in the bed

and a jackass to pay for all of it.”

The Christian Way

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff– including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see.

This was passed on to me from another pumpkin. Now, it is your turn to pass it to a pumpkin. I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch.

Happy Autumn!

Attorney For Tom Delay Cites Evidence Of Guilt As Proof of Innocence And Vice Versa

News that you can’t use

From the text:
Just ask Ann Richards. Texas Republicans used the fact that they couldn’t find any proof that she was a Lesbian to show the people of Texas that she must be a Lesbian during the campaign that made George W. Bush Governor; why else would she have gone to such great lengths to hide the evidence that she was if she wasn’t?”
