The camaraderie and love that is SHARED in prison is unconditional. Camaraderie and Intimacy amongst inmates and volunteers is very special. Sue speaks of being completely blessed because of her journey with the ex-convicts as well as persons she meets who are still incarcerated. She uses this quote to emphasize the importance of love “Love is the answer, what is the question?”
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE is experienced by SHARING our Burdens together with people in jail. We are there, only to SHARE love with those who feel very unloved by the world. Then these inmates can receive and give the same unsolicited love to us, the volunteers. We both (inmate and volunteer) can give and receive UNCONDITIONAL LOVE inside the walls of jails when it is virtually impossible under almost every other circumstance in life! To know this love is to CHERISH its UNCONDITIONAL nature!
When we have no rules or agendas and truly come together, only to SHARE from the heart, something Spiritual happens! We all know that whatever it is, it is pure, honest, loving and unselfish! When we feel this, we know we are blessed! In this state, our powerlessness is easy to accept even though most of us must stay in the jail after the meeting! We SHARE the burdens, in the moment only where no comparing can happen. We are all (inmate and volunteer) together for a time, captives set free!
Sue physically felt this UNCONDITIONAL love coming out from her eyes on a couple of occasions. She says simply that it was beautiful! The JOURNEY she says is undoing what has taken to NOW to create whether we have lived for 10 50 or 90 years 365/7. Support is key to accomplishing this! YOU CANNOT DO IT ALONE! It takes a “WE”!
A simple workable prayer can be “pls direct me into the next right thing that I should do”!..
God is in control friends, so let him control as we put others first!
EVIDENCE OF GROWTH RESIDES IN THE WAY ONE LIVES HER/HIS LIFE!
