I have been going to cafe gratitude for the past 2+ years. The people that I've met there are very well adjusted and clear headed. The things I've learned about foods, as well as the things I have learned about myself during this time have been life changing. I am very impressed with Terces, her husband and the cafe gratitude team. I pray they keep up the good work.
- Any one I worked with was very annoyed and just wanted to do shrooms. And find themselves.
Why should anyone be surprised or dismayed because one or two people are bad mouthing a good thing? This has happened all through history... You try to do something good for people, and they complain. Moses led the Israelites out of slavery to Egypt and they complained. Jesus raised the dead, healed the sick, fed hungry multitudes... And what happened ? People complained. Interesting thing about complainers... They never have anything better to offer... They have no better course of action to suggest, no better route that people should take, no better foods that people should eat, no better person to person practices to suggest.... Just complaint for the sake of complaint.
-I complained because their ideology affected my physical life where I had to skip a class in order ti go to the 7:00 am meetings where they didn't care if you had children going to school that morning. Only to hear about their trips to brazil and about selling the game and attending landmark. Lets face it not everyone finds their faith through a game or a hug....i find it throught the struggle that I face everyday, and the injustices that happen in front of my own eyes through a job that is considered sacred and comon-
Along these same lines... Right now we have people bad mouthing nationwide universal healthcare... They're screaming and hollering... But what do they have better? Not a damn thing.
I don't know ash, but I wish her the best... As for those who have allowed themselves to be influenced by this person...
-the only influence that comes is from these people that think they know better than any one else. different point in our lives. I worked there for a year. I know how people are treated from the outside. Full time student, married & full of ambition to grow and be successful, but I saw the hypocrisy and money. For those who spoke out are the ones who saw the flaws and were kicked out or left because of disappointment .-
Exactly what has this person put forth as the better life course? Complaining and tearing people and ideas down is easy and requires no talent. The real work is in coming up with a better way and communicating that... So exactly what is that way ? I hear nothing but crickets... Do you hear crickets... ?
~Some crickets have more money than others, but once we have this power you will see how it is to be successful and what it is to be just human. Understanding of a persons differences. ~
It is only when we recognize, confront and tame our in-born unwillingness to see the good in ourselves and others, that we can rid ourselves of this joy robbing negativity and reach our full potential.
Terces... Thank you for laboring tirelessly the way you and your husband have. I have seen you both work for the good of others with my own eyes and ears... Thank you both. Instead of spending your time at Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, buying the latest and greatest cars and vacationing in Europe... You have chosen to focus your time and resources on helping people and serving others. You have truly helped more people than you will ever know.
-yes they are nice, but to make a true difference you must listen change yourself and others will follow...if they don't help anyway we are all children of the same universe...we all have different priorities and a true friend supports you in whatever you need,-
So I say, don't change a thing, keep right on 'doing you'. "
No, no thank you .........Carina
