Topic: You Scratch My Back, _______

Thursday April 1, 2010

Perhaps another clever saying/cliché and I don’t know who the author is of this one and many of the others I have used in this blog. Instead of, “I’ll scratch yours,” I would replace it with, “just don’t make me bleed or better yet, how about a back massage instead?” OK, so maybe I am stretching that a little because I want some soothing relief for my aching body. Doesn’t mean I will shy away from giving you the same in return. I actually have the gift of healing touch. I have studied some shiatsu massage, but I’m not certified. I simply have the knack for knowing what to do. I’m sure there are things you can do in your life that no one taught you HOW to do them? Other things I am self-taught in are, drumming (bongo, not drum kit), singing, writing poetry (that is all I can think of at the moment). Getting back to the topic above, I do believe it is great if we help each other out (I wish this world would get back to a barter system instead of money, because we know that the paper really has no value and bartering is much more viable for a future that is free of the overinflated economic debt and disillusion. I like it when I can offer a service that I am an ‘expert’ in to someone and they have something they can give me in exchange that I need/want. It could also be that I have an over abundance of cucumbers growing and you have an apple tree that is bearing lots of fruit and we can do a trade. Life would also be much simpler and most likely people would be happier. We could probably do away with the banking system and perhaps other outdated ways of doing business that do nothing for the good of the people or the planet. I would also propose that we do away with all motorized/gas fueled vehicles (in the air, on land and water) and use our physical power to get around. Whether by bicycle, roller skates/blades, skateboard, kayak, sailboat or walking. The health of the population would soar to higher heights that this world have never seen. With getting fresh air, sunshine and exercise our physical body will be fine tuned and fit. Then we would all grow our own vegetables and fruits and eating any food from the animal kingdom would be prohibited (WOW! Imagine prohibition, {like the days of old when it was about alcohol} against meat, dairy and fish). You would be welcome to have a farm with animals, but not to eat! This is my idyllic EDEN and maybe one day it will be realized and happen. I wish that I will be alive to see it. Until then, I will continue to make the best choices to uphold my principles/ideals and help planet earth (eating low on the food chain as a 20 year vegan, recycling, walking, using public transportation, laughing, singing, walking barefoot on the sand, sunning, etc). I hope you get my ‘drift‘ and can do your part to make a difference for yourself and the world at large.
