I know my personality and character just sort of fit with the way our culture has been evolving. That’s been a fantastic thing for me, my job and success but not such a fantastic thing overall. The reason I say this is that my ability to compartmentalize and just plow through until I get a desired result is absent of some basic mankind. It took some time around people at the cannabis dispensary to help myself and others understand a bit more about compassion. I’ve been a win at all cost and take no prisoners sort of man for the past couple of decades. Now, it’s no wonder that I’m alone and my relationships all seem so transactional. But when my mom got sick with cancer, there was nobody but myself and others to help. Of course, I tried to just pay for his care but that wasn’t enough. My mom needed myself and others and I had to respond. One of the first things all of us did before his treatment began was to get the cannabis products he needed. The doctors had recommended both the sativa strains and indica products for my mom’s situation. Watching how the folks at the local cannabis spot treated my mother stopped myself and others dead in my tracks. It was one hundred percent compassion. I stayed with my mom for multiple months while also working. Each time all of us visited that local cannabis spot, I got closer and closer to accessing the deep human compassion that is actually available to all of us. Mom is better now and I’m changed forever. My life is adjustingly more about what I can do for others as opposed to what I can get for myself. And that’s all thanks in huge area to the kind people at the local cannabis spot.
