How many times have you heard

“Let me know if I can help you.”  - Then not get any help?


When somebody asks

“How are you?”  - Were they really interested?


Can you tell the difference? - Do you care?


Every day we all go through the motions.

We all want something. - Do we know what we want?


Sure we want things to make us feel good. But what makes us feel good?

How can we measure feeling good?

As we get older what makes us feel good?


When we start as babies our needs are basic, we want

milk, warmth, and clean nappies.

When we get older milk becomes food,

warmth develops into

emotional as well as environmental needs.


But what happens to the clean nappies?

Who gets rid of the dirty bits?


We have to grow and handle the mess we all leave behind us.

What would happen if the messy bits were in front of us every day?


If this was the case, would we clean up in front of us?


Or is this why we have people cleaning up behind us all the time?


For people who don’t clean up for themselves,

do they know what’s happening?

Do they care? - Are they too busy?


And if so, just what are they too busy doing?


For all those people who spend their life’s cleaning up behind others,

what else could they be doing?


This world of ours now has advanced more quickly than ever before, information is available instantly via the internet.

Taking a walk to the library just cannot give an answer as quick as pressing buttons.


Email sends messages instantly around the world,

letters still take days to arrive and cost more.

Sometimes even if you get a letter it’s been stuck in a letter box

the rain has soaked your letters,

it gets torn when you slide it through the letter box.


And that’s after you get rid of all the brochures and advertising flyers.


Cell phones keep us in touch instantly, not just with each other,

but the “sponsors” or advertisers they get in on the act.


But if there were no sponsors or advertisers, who would pay?


Do we really need to know what is happening with other people,

instantly?


Is it important to know what is happening with us at all?


Would it be better if we knew ourselves,

before someone else tells us all about situations which do not have anything to do with us?
