A Strong History
For the last 17 years or so, I have been teaching the downtrodden, the homeless, the disconnected inner-city teenager, and inmates in prison, in how to feel lovable. It doesn’t matter how much I love someone, if they do not love themselves, they cannot receive that love. How did they lose the ability to feel lovable and connected?
17 years ago, I asked a question to twenty ladies and forty men in a homeless shelter: When did you lose your power? After the ladies told their story and we were half way through the men, a gentleman, just released from prison that week, said something significant that he noticed. Scientist looks for similarities in differences, he was the scientist that day. Every story of abuse, physical, mental, verbal, sexual, and emotional, had the same common denominator.
It was through the insight of that former prisoner, that put me on my current pathway, how to end needless suffering.
