I first want to thank the old lady for putting up with my ass. lol
If I wasn't for her I would have nobody and I would not be where I am today.
Second I want to thank her family for accepting me as one of their own. They knew I would be trouble from the start, just as all orphans are. I am also glad that they stuck with me long enough to see the man that I have become. Responsible to a certain degree, caring, and hopeful. Three things I did not have before them. Thank you for giving me the strength to take my life back.
I thank Budda for letting me see the truths of the world. For giving me the sight to see the Deception that is Christianity. For giving me the strength to put things into perspective, show compassion for all of life, and showing me how death is a gift even when it is used as a metaphor.
For showing me the reflecting and healing powers of meditation and the small ray of enlightenment I have received from his teachings. Most of all for showing me that praying to some god for help is foolish.
For ones life to become better and change the way you want it, it only takes the courage to take action.
Thank you for showing me that blindly praying to God and Jesus for hope for a better future is a lazy mans excuse to do nothing. To pray to god and want without taking the necessary action required for change, is a mortal sin in and of itself. It is selfish.
Thank you Budda for showing me the light. May all this food be as filling and as good as it was in your time.
