The flight of the Bumblebee


A posting on Facebook:
Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” ― Ashley Smith


To which I responded:
Yestereve, I watched a travel programme on Guatemala. It was full of women with tribes of small children, all starving after clearing the forests to grow crops and, in the process, contributing to climate change. The men had left to seek work elsewhere and thus feed their families, I guess.
     The only way the world can break this seemingly endless cycle of self-inflicted misery is to sterilize the teeming masses who breed. Yet, I see a never-ending stream of adverts for money to help these poor sufferers, donkeys, snow leopards and the like. Is that the right way to deal with the end of the World as we have known it? How can we live life to the full and inflate our bellies knowing what is going on in that country and others like nearby Brasil?
     I believe in reincarnation, some definitive examples of which involve moving between countries like the USA and India. I can easily anticipate where some of us will end up, hopefully, you rather than me unless you start getting some philosophy and sense of relative proportion in your soul and body!
