Please LOOK AT THE HOMELESS THROUGH THE LENS OF COMPASSION AND GIVE A HELPING HAND TO SOMEONE WHO IS TRULY IN NEED OF YOUR KINDNESS.
I awoke to a vision from my Guides showing me how horrible it is to be homeless. They put ‘glass beds,’ lined up like bunk beds, all around me while I sat outside. I could clearly see through the ‘glass walls’ and saw that the homeless people have absolutely no privacy. They made me feel the fear that they experience every day, all day long, because of the lack of security that comes with living on the streets.
They then laid me down on a ‘glass bed’ in one of the tiny glass houses. It was horrible. It felt cold and was extremely uncomfortable. I was miserable. I also felt high anxiety because I knew everyone could see me, which made me feel nervous and unsafe. I had a hard time closing my eyes to sleep because I was afraid that an intruder would hurt me. After all, it would be so easy for them to see that I was lying there with my eyes closed, sleeping, because I had no house with walls and a locking door to protect me. I felt very vulnerable.
The next day, when I reflected on the pain I felt, I realized how truly vulnerable the homeless really are and that no one would ever put themselves intentionally in this condition. Ever! My guides showed me that they need so much help, more than they are often capable of asking for. I also realized my Guides didn’t even put me through how they suffer from lack of food and health care, going on with untreated illnesses (not yet at least).
If someone is homeless, they are living on the streets for a reason. It could be because of mental illness, drug addiction, domestic violence, loss of job/income, etc. If someone is homeless, it is because they couldn’t make it work under conventional conditions. They are in a desperate crisis, one serious enough that they had to leave home and lose the safety and security that housing provides. They need help. They need compassion. They need us, the ones who can intervene with our financial resources and help them help themselves… and at least protect them while they are in this vulnerable state.
Please look at the homeless through the lens of compassion and give a helping hand to someone who is truly in need of your kindness. Please Give.
