Listening to the radio, the other day, I thought I heard an ad say: “call the dead people to talk about your dead”.
Wow… A direct line to the other side! What’s the number?
Joking aside, that’s what I do, being a developing medium an all. Although, dead only applies, in my opinion, to the shell suit, throw away body we inhabit in our earthly existence. As a Spiritualist, I believe that life is eternal and you can’t die. Sometimes, talking to the dearly departed, my preferred term for dead people, is easier than trying to strike up a conversation with the living, but I guess we all have our own challenges with communication and the ever growing choices in media.
The ad, by the way, was about debt. My hearing may be on the decline, along with my eyesight, but I still feel and sense that somewhere in this world, there’s got to be a reason to live and stand up for what’s right!
Mahatma Gandhi once said: “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed”.
That quote came to mind when reading “Meltdown” by Ben Elton. A thought provoking and inspiring story about the rise and fall of fortunes, and what truly matters in times of adversity!
