    Buddha, I pray

    I pray to be shown a direction to head in. I'm stuck in an open field. Every direction around me holds something Evil. I can not find peace in this violent world. Living around those who care nothing for anyone. I wish to help those starving, those over-worked and under-paid. I wish to release humanity of It's ignorance. I wish to nurture Earth back to health, from what humanity has done to it. But I don't know how. I am overwhelmed with sadness and hopelessness. Please, guide me.

    Peace

    Hello again Eli

    How old are you now, 16 or maybe 17 ? What's happening in your life at the moment - are you still at school ?

    I think its wonderful that you want to help the under privileged and are concerned about the environment, but a good education and some qualifications are always useful, whatever occupation you hope to have.

    I'm really sorry that youre feeling sad, but I think sometimes we have to accept that the world is never going to be perfect and just do what we can for others on a smaller scale.

    With metta,

    Aloka

    Greetings Aloka. I turn 18 in a couple of months. And graduate in early June. I want to pursue a career in writing. My mom was. Diagnosed with schizophrenia, so I have been trying to care of her. Life has been fun and challenging in my eyes.

    That's really interesting, what type of writing do you plan to do ?

    I'm really sorry to hear about your mother, but I'm glad that she's had a diagnosis and is getting cared for.

    It's good to know that you're being so positive, Eli.
