    Hey guys, I just needed to vent a bit. No trolling or funny business, just real talk:

    I'm currently in Kenya - just meditating and chilling with my parents for the new year and I've grown used to the fact that things are...a little bit different here....but today I saw something that actually messed up my head. I was walking back home from the store and there are two beggars there. I usually don't mind giving them a few coins here and there if I have it on me even though I know they'll sniff glue or something else.

    Outside of the store, there's the typical third world filth that I'm sure you've all seen - or at least should see at some point in your lives and there's one particular place where the filthiest trash is thrown. By the way this is in the city, and as we all know, cities are generally kind of gross (at least to me) - even in the US.

    I casually glanced at the garbage/shit pile and I had to do a fucking double take and clear my eyes because I really thought I was dreaming. The homeless guy I'd seen walking around was sleeping there in the trash.

    What. The. Fuck.

    A nigga is sleeping on the trash...There is a motherfucking HUMAN BEING...SLEEPING...On.The.Trash. What in God's fucking name is this?

    It had just rained earlier in the day, so of course all the piss and filth of the street had accumulated nearby.

    What kind of fucking society allows a human being to reach such depths of mental illness and poverty? There must have been 100 people passing by and not a single one gave so much as a glance, a flying fuck or a god damn about that guy. What kind of an evil world do we live in where just the other day, I saw some random guy driving by in a huge limo during a wedding with all the bells and whistles you'd find in a first world country while this guy is sleeping in the trash.

    I can't believe it. I really, really can't. Not even animals live like this. The man is completely invisible to society, completely withdrawn. Is there anyone watching over him? Does ANYONE on this planet and in the spirit world care even a bit? Is there something I can personally do to help that sad sap find happiness?

    To be quite honest, I don't even know if there is a god. I've seen a lot of things in my meditations, trust me, but sometimes I just wonder...why?

    That man is an indictment on this society, on the fucking disgusting corrupt politicians, crooks, thieves, and sociopaths that run this place. FUCK THEM!!!

    I'm not going to tolerate that guy living like that, someone needs to help him. Brb, I need a candle, a demon, a teaspoon of [redacted] and a full moon.

    Nah, I don't expect that, but something will certainly happen. The poor fella very clearly has mental problems, so if he can get to a place where he has decent water, food and shelter, that will be good enough for me.

    Why the fuck else do I have this knowledge if not to help my fellow man?

    I am not one of those who say that there a lot of them etc so just you helping wont change. I believe someone has to start at some point.

    BUT

    What did you do to help him at that very moment instead of just posting here and waiting for people's opinion? If people were that much worried don't you think someone would have helped him already?

    You meditate! Awesome, calms mind. Don't you believe in Karma?

    This is just the way it is dude. Some people get cancer at 10 years old and die. Some people get crazy and are homeless.

    I ain't got time to help everybody, so i don't. I help a select few that I have time and resources for.

    Well, anytime one of them asks me for change, I give them. I know that generally I'm not really doing him any favors because of what they usually buy...but let's be real for a second - those people, kids, etc... do drugs to escape from the fact that they are hungry, poor, homeless and have no chances at anything.

    What exactly could I have done at the moment? The guy was sleeping, wake him up and say/do what exactly?

    Yeah meditation is the foundation of my life for sure. I certainly believe in karma, lol I was just picturing him being the reincarnation of some brutal, egocentric warlord. It's about the only thing that makes sense I suppose. But honestly I just don't know.

    May be give him something to eat the next day you see him awake instead of money :)
    Will make you feel better. Don't think anything else you can do. There are many suffering but its all destiny or karma may be right?
    Nobody gets what they want, they get what they deserve. If he was born that way then nothing you can do instead of just helping but till when? But if he is physically and mentally well enough to work hard and earn atleast a meal still chose not to then may be he deserves that trash.

    Jesus man...
    Clean clothes (and the hot meal) are actually very good ideas, thanks guys. I think if he's a bit more comfortable, he might be able to think for a little bit.

    Sure. The society is truly messed up. No one cares about the other nowadays. Seen how our politians behaved today? Its was truly a shame. The world is full of self minded individuals today.

    Yes, someone in the spirit world cares.

    Jesus works through people. You saw that guy suffering and YOU yourself could have done something rather than thinking someone else should take responsibility.

    Here is a passage from Matthew:

    "For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. 'Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?' And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'"

    So what did you do for him? Other than petition people on BHW to care for this guy in Kenya?
