When old people and pets are abandoned, it will come back to haunt those who do the abandonments.

I feel our society does not value old people. I went to a new eye doctor who tried to scare me into all sorts of tests as I am getting old. Any comment I made, he disagreed with and said it was just because I was getting old. Ill health is ill health - not being old. You can bet that very young man lost a customer. The sad part is that he believed what he was saying.
We have kept our animal friends alive far longer than most - even past loss of bladder and bowel control. If they still enjoyed eating and being with us, we kept them. Our Malamute lived to be 16 - the vet said the average age expectancy was 8......
Many of my dear older friends tell wonderful stories. I have more difficulty with the infirm - not sure when to offer assistance..... do not want to wound pride.
I am grateful for the opportunity to grow old. N in Tucson

Oh, RubyNorma, you hit a hot button issue for me. I hate aging. Why? Because we live in a throw-away society. I was my mother's sole caregiver and had to fight every day to keep her alive and to have dignity in her later years. It was very frustrating in a system set up to kill the caregiver. I had countless people, including her oncologist, ask me why I didn't put her in a nursing home. My answer: I can NOT WAREHOUSE MY MOTHER!!! It still makes me furious that this is the norm in this society. I have no one who will fight for me. I will have to fight for myself. But I will NOT go to a nursing home. Ever. No matter what they call it. The condescension for the elderly, the disrespect makes me sick to my stomach. People should be ashamed of themselves. There is so much to be learned from older people. They should be revered, loved, respected. Fat chance.

Hi Ruby,
The lack of respect shown to the elderly is the result of the lack of courage and commonsense by both the citizens and the ruling leaders.There is a law in Australia that stipulates that a child under 10 years old cannot be deemed responsible for anything.All over Australia young kids between seven and eight who know about this law are taking the piss out of all authority agencies including the police,who can do absolutely nothing about it.Good that.These days everything is revolving around money.Money is only one part of the twelve experiences of man,while he lives on this earth.People do not know this nor have they got any clue about what their governments have in store for them.Old people cost money,like pensions,rebates and mostly health care.Well,in many countries now if you are retired and have financial assets that you have worked your butt off for this is taken into account and your government pension is reduced even stopped altogether.Next is the amount of toxins and chemicals being put and allowed legally,in foods to poison and reduce the lifespan of the elderly who mostly have lower immune systems.Any good commonsensical doctor will tell you there is no vaccine that can cure the flu,yet every year we hear this repeated bleating by scientists and eminent doctors advocating the elderly be given flu vaccines supposedly to help them fight these concocted flu epidemics that just happen to go around the world every winter.You may ask why governments would sponsor big pharma to produce millions of vaccines to give to the elderly free.Well,just think about the cost of a vaccine against the monthly pension of a pensioner over twenty years.That's why.All flu vaccines actually make people sick and if they are unlucky they are dead.Once the old codger drops dead after receiving a $10 dollar vaccine,the government stops paying his pension for ever.Are you getting the gist of lateral thinking here?.But then again his death is totally blamed of any flu epidemic that just happens to do the rounds then.Funny how the Chinese,the Spanish,the South Americans are blamed for flu epidemics these days.Even the birds,pigs and predominantly the Asians.
Then again I may have got all this very wrong but I very much doubt it. Have a nice day. ANON in OZ

Greeting to you all.
What does it mean when we become old?  Have we learned enough to be deemed wise? Or have we not grown very much in the span of those years?  I was raised to respect my elders and to listen when spoken to without being rude.  Of course that is very old fashioned, but I kinda' like it better than the rampant disrespect we see nowadays from young people towards the elderly.  Why am I writing this to you?  
Thanks for asking. grins :-) 
After more decades than I can fathom down here, and now in an aging body, I feel like it is time to say as much of what I truly believe in and respect before I cross over to Rainbow.  Since beginning this Norma's Ark Blog back in 2006, I have received enough  commentary to fill up an encyclopedia.  Most have been pleasant and respectful. A few, not so much. :-( 
I have spoken with people from The Vatican, assorted other countries, some very famous politicians and entertainers, the struggling unemployed, returning soldiers who have been devastated by wars in the plural, and a few very mentally sick folks.  All have taught me things I appreciate, even if they disagreed with my blogs.  So now I ask those who read my writings how you feel about the aging process, and the growing disregard for the elderly?  Have you learned from your older mentors?  Do you feel they are outdated jerks?  Do you shy away from old people, and feel they should be put away in a nursing home so you will not have to be bothered because you are just too busy??  Do you adore and respect your older circle and want them at your family table on a regular basis?  Have you abandoned family or pets because they are old and sick... and regard them as a waste of your precious, youthful time? 
All these vital questions are weighing upon me as I am aging.  Thank you in advance for your genuine replies.
Blest Be.  Dr. RubyNorma Yanez, CH.t   

Look who agrees with my thinking. :-) ...
Or should I humbly say, look who I am 
agreeing with?

The Meaning of Compassion 

Compassion is interesting stuff. So interesting, in fact,
it can get confusing. Confusion may result from the idea that compassion is enabling. It is not. Enabling is giving another person permission to act upon or act out inappropriately, whether it is in the form of  
addiction, abuse or any other inappropriate behavior. When enabling occurs, power is being given away consciously or unconsciously.

Enabling is allowing your Self to just accept that this is the way your life is and going to continue to be. Existing in an ineffective, abusive situation can excuse the abuse or the addiction by being confused as to what compassion really means. Compassion does not make it acceptable. Compassion assists you to understand the other person or persons as dysfunctional, and you get to choose how you participate or not. Being a victim is not ever acceptable.

You can have compassion while not being a victim and while not being an enabler. An enabler is actually a victimizer role which allows your Self to be victimized by the victimizer, the addict or abuser. As the enabler, you give the victimizer permission to victimize you and you in turn, through dysfunctional support, become the victimizer to the victimizer, establishing an intense circle of confusing behavior. The push-me-pull-ums go 'round and 'round in the relationship. Everyone walks on egg shells afraid of letting go or changing. Yet, at times, everyone is still expecting different results. This is very challenging to be compassionate. It can be done.

Back to the word compassion! All words that end in -ion mean at the cellular level or ion level of your consciousness. Some examples: aggravation, aggravated at your cellular level; depression, depressed at your cellular level. Compassion is your compass at your ion or cellular level of consciousness. You have a great guide within your Self...your compassion. You do have a choice of being clear and compassionate or staying confused.
When you are compassionate and in compassion, you are guiding your Self away from fear, anger, depression, sadness...all the negative stuff that is stuffed in your cells or ion level deep within you.

Using compassion as a compass, you live your life through your heart. Guiding your Self from your heart with empathy is the way of a wonderful deep connection to your Self and others. Empathy is not emotional. It does not hold emotional hooks to the past nor emotional pain attached to the past. Empathy allows you to see from a vantage point without judgment and allows you to stay in your Power.

Compassion is the compass from your ion or cellular level which connects you to your innate intuition and Self-trust. Trust your intuition or "gut" feeling, trust your heart and you trust your Self without question. Embrace your compassion, empathy and intuition to support your Self to live a fulfilled life.

Now through your inner guidance, follow your inner compass from your ion level and be prepared for great relationships and great things to happen in your life. Compassion is the way of your heart. You have the way!

Blessings in All Ways Always,
Sherry Anshara

At 5:24 PM, which is an 11, Master Number, Sunday 6/30/2013, my very best friend for 18 years who mentored me, guided me, loved my unconditionally, brought me laughter and comfort, who was my soul mate, my sister in a another form... My wondrous Akido, the most fabulous Tuxedo Cat on this planet, who entered by life as a rescue, rescued me so many times when she made me laugh at my Self and feel the most incredible unconditional love. We lived a great life together Master Akido and I. She is one of a kind. I will miss her beyond words. To life Akido, I know we are connected forever.


Wise Insight's by Christy

My Insight.......I consider my self a very compassionate person.  Through my life I would feel for others and forget about me.  I had sympathy and have learned that I would give my energy in feeling the others troubles and would loose my Self.  I continue to be a compassionate person as I feel it through my heart with empathy for the other person.  This has allowed me to have healthy relationships.  
You ask me why is Christy the Expert Sage....In every day life, in real terms, Christy utilizes and implements the QuantumPathic Energy Method's practical tools for living.  Because she has empowered her Self in every aspect of her life, she is willing to share her insights of what she has learned, how she applies her QP tools and the amazing results she gets each and every day.  Through her own personal experience, Christy will be sharing her knowledge and her insights with you.
