If you read my blog last week and if you believed I had dinner with Robert de Niro then I apologise if my attempt at wit got misdirected! I wrote my blog after a bout of flu and I can only blame delirium for that post!
However, I do believe in the power of thought and attraction so I am not giving up on having a tête-à-tête with Mr Dinero as I do believe it’s worth me giving it a shot to try and get through to him on a sore point!
Because of my blog post, I discovered that Mr D and other gazillionaires of his ilk are wanting to provide a luxurious getaway for other rich buddies on the beautiful island of Barbuda. I also discovered that land in Barbuda has always been held in common by the people and has never been up for grabs, till now! What a disappointment this news was to me. Once again, I was confused and devastated to see how the rich want it all! They want it now and with no concern of the right thing, seeming to poop on others less fortunate than themselves! With arguments dressing it up as jobs for the locals , doing the local economy good yawn, the rich get everywhere and just want to take take take! And to what end? In my opinion, albeit just an opinion, God forbid their final moments on earth, Those moments when the DVD of our lives is thrust in front of our eyes and when we have to look at all the messy things that we did with our lives. This goes for all of us, no exceptions!
I try hard, sometimes harder, sometimes not, but I try hard every day to be a better person. I have warts and all and that better person inside does daily battle with the voices in her head telling her she’s too this and not enough of that. But I do daily battle and most often I tell the voices that Glynny is not a bad ‘un after all and I do admire the little bit she does for her part on the planet! It’s not a lot but it’s my lot and I try not to do damage on others although each day, more realisation of my consumerism habits does bother me – where has it come from and who suffered to get it to me!! Oh, and I can try a lot harder believe you me!
So Mr De Niro and to all other wealthy people of your kind, you know the ones I mean – wanting luxury at the expense of others – please call and let’s meet. From a spiritual perspective I have a message or two. One, you cannot take it with you! There is no way you’ll get to say at the very end, hang on, let me pack my wealth please! And two, you will have to answer for everything you did with your life especially how it affected the lives of others. There are 1,800 Barbudians facing not only a loss of land but a loss of tradition and community and all because you and your buddies want a new playground. You are not bad people, none of us are, but we cannot live in more than one home; we cannot drive more than one car; we cannot dress ourselves in more than one outfit and we should not do all this at the expense of those with nowt. In short, please KISS – keep it simple stupid!
