Thought for the Day - Sunday (Your Secret World)
We all have days when we need to escape from the world into our refuge; our safe place, which we will have created and it can be anywhere in the world because it is only in our mind, - it is unassailable and free from corruption, from pain and coercion. It could be my field and stream, the beach in the evening with the feel of the sand between your toes and the cry of the gulls or the safe, warm community of parts of London and other big cities, not so long ago. It may be in the mind of the abused child, where the filthy attic is the only refuge, the sparrows at the grimy window and the soft coo of the pigeons your only friends. Everyone can find their sanctuary, their retreat from the terrors of life. It has been my mental salvation many times when the world seems to have gone mad and compassion and humanity seems so far away.
In the real world do not, however, give way to those who would destroy our way of life. The drug barons, the muggers, rapists, mindless thugs and other filth that despoil our streets must be neutralised and if our Government is too weak willed to do it they must be persuaded otherwise. Eventually if enough of the people speak they will have no option but to listen. However if you are young/old, weak or being bullied or abused then talk to someone who you can trust, or the police who you will find are far more sympathetic and protective than you would think. Never suffer, you are far too precious.
Do you feel the need to get away from the stresses of the world?
