Am I depressed?

Is this what depression feels like? I think I might need some sort of therapy. But I don't really want to pay for it. I'm just so low and want somebody to care about me. I miss her so much. I wish I would've realized just how low I was. I was so uninterested in my life and that's no fun to live with. I don't know what I want to do. I want to wait for her. 

It's probably not healthy though. I'm not ready to move on yet. I guess it's almost been a month now since my reality change. I've been running away from it. I don't know how to face it though. I don't want to be without her. The problem with heartbreak is there just so much pain and all you can do is try to accept it. I feel like I never got a warning. And that's probably because I didn't. The way she broke the news to me felt so selfish. "I'm leaving, I don't want you to come. Sorry." How did I mean so little to you? I think I just can't comprehend why you're so compelled to leave. I've never had that angst before. I wanted to see the world with you Maddo. I was just to scared to do it right away. The world felt right when I was with you. And now I don't know how to experience it.

Why don't I want anything? I want to make the world a better place, but what does that even entail? Is being kind to others enough? I want to be a better person. But I'm not ready for how alone I feel. I'm not ready for her to be gone, and yet in my heart I know she left what already feels like an eternity ago.

My body aches. Just aches so so much. I wonder how long it will take me to accept this loss. It's like I'm dying a death every time I think about her. I just need to remember that I really do want to be happy. I want to be fine being alone again. I don't know that I've ever been all that good at being alone. Perhaps I need to seek approval less. I try to be such an idealistic and individualistic person, and yet I struggle without the validation of such a love. 

I'm so sorry and you're the one who broke up with me. I feel like my world is upside down, and I just need to start finding and fixing my problems.

I think this whole free flowing writing exercise is really helpful. I'm afraid it's all going to look like gibberish, but it is so helpful when it comes to sorting out my thoughts. I'm not a strong person on my own. But I don't have to be alone. So many people love me, if I would just be open with them, I'm sure they would try to help.

I'm not as smart as I wish I were, but I'm smart enough to know there's nothing I can't do if I'm willing to out my mind to it.

May we never try to change the ones we love, but hope to be there for then through any change that finds them.

The man who walks lightly

The man who walks lightly is the one living for Virtue.
He perceives the difficulty in his path, so he moves to his destination with ease.
He produces ten thousand things, but he owns very little.
He would rather yield a foot for what is right, than gain an inch by the wrong means.
He never takes offense, but defends swiftly and surely.
He requests his needs from others, served by many while commanding none.
He is seen as a leader, because others follow his example.

One with the One

I am.
May I mind the serenity of being.
Help me embrace the divinity of existence.
This thread of being weaves everything together with potential to create, change, and continue,
it's endless.I rejoice in awe.
May I more freely share it. 
Help me to remember that wonder is just a word.
There is nothing I can write to describe the feeling,
its experience is beyond language.I convict myself with awareness.
May I have the strength to toe the line.
Help me to be humble but resolute.
That joy felt in honoring others brings honor to myself,
it's all an honor to you.I dissolve in your presence.
May I find my truest form within you.
Help me to accept my fears and my desires.
The unknown holds the greatest treasures,
it's waiting to be found.I empty myself.
May I be further filled.
Help me to grow as I overflow.
Thy will is more than I will ever know,
it's what it will be.

Free Land, or the ideal mean for a Location Value funded Citizen's Dividend

If we want to liberate ourselves from one another, we can buy into the idea that we can more effectively share this planet. We can do so for the purposes of maximizing human autonomy and the experience of equal liberty for every citizen of the Earth, through each of their local communities. We have the means today to voluntarily buy into a federation of neighborhood scale land trusts with a global reach. Existentially, our birthrights are the greatest lottery of all of history. We can make that a game with winning odds for everyone.
The desire to be free, to choose to live how we each wish to live, is strongly felt within each of us. But those who experience it most, unfortunately, value it least. They become so accustomed to protecting or jealously expanding their own experience of it that they have created a system of enforcing their own privileges at the cost of others. I believe all people ought to choose whosoever's service they wish to enter, but I do not believe any of us …
