RE: The Need For Practical Application

How very true are Brother Ramadoss' remarks.

In over twenty years of criminal rehabilitation
counseling, and attempting to assist ex-offenders to transition successfully back into society, the major cause today of recidivism is
as I have seen, drug addiction, methamphetemenes and crack cocaine. I am certain that Geoffrey Hodson would include these demons along with his assessment of alcohol. It is truly devastating to see families torn apart and lives ruined by the addiction of their loved ones.  Both the addicted and their families need our unswerving Compassion.

Do we know someone suffering with an addiction? Can we have the courage and goodwill to offer them our friendship and 
compassionate assistance? 

Is a family you know enduring the embarrasment and turmoil
of an addicted family member? Do we have the courage and goodwill to offer them our understanding and assistance.  

The littlest thing you might do for some one, can in their eyes often be a big blessing.  

The problem is that not enough people care, we tend to be self-absorbed with our own agendas, and are apathetic to the needs of our neighbors. 

Can Theosophists afford Not to care?
