A THIRD WORLD REALITY
I wonder how he found us!
Pedro and Renzo, how is your spiritual center growing?
Love and blessings,
Our project is just fine, thank God everything is going smooth with us, but something happened to me while visiting; which will never make me see the world the way I did until that time again. Renzo and I went to the border between Peru and Ecuador to buy material for our project. A town so poor garbage and sewage mixed together on the muddy streets, the smell was horrible I thought, a place where poor good people try to earn a meal, and where crime and despair was also a problem.
While standing against the side of of market wall, I saw those people surviving in their own ways, barefooted little kids walked the filthy streets risking their health with a nothing to live for look in their eyes. I felt that whole town's pain in an instant, making me so angry for those in power who don't even care to look in such remote places, so that they can keep filling their pockets. I thought how can we be so selfish and pretend everything is just fine, how can there be millionaire wars when this still exists next door, I felt so useless I wished not to had been human, even animals are not that evil. But I couldn't let all that get me down, and thought if I saw this, it isn't to let it weaken my energy but to make me stronger and bring awareness to people, and to appreciate and thank God for what I have and don't complain much.
I went back to our beach that afternoon and sitting in the ocean, thinking of all I had just seen, wishing I could end all that...then a local fisherman walk by asking for work. I started talking to him expressing how I felt. He could see my pain and desire to help, he started to give me ideas that would not only generate employment there but also multiply my investments to generate more employment and it is all I want, I am really tired of the world trying to get rich, just so they can be rich, I just want to end such misery experienced during my visit.
This fisherman was so nice, I told him I would look for him next time and Will invest in fishing boats to put to work and help the town. I just praise the lord I can accomplish all this, it's all I want to do in my lifetime, I don't care about comforts for myself anymore, I can't have any anyhow, not after seeing all that, it wouldn't be right.
Well Gloria, the resort is going fine and hope it is a great success, I need all the money I can generate to spread that energy and create more work and uplift those people and give them something to feel good about, and maybe that will change the consciousness of some people like me and with more economic means to start a love chain reaction of change.
Dios te bendiga Gloria,
