There is no shortage
There is no shortage. And any attention to shortage of something wanted will always produce negative emotion within you because your guidance is letting you know that you have strayed from your broader basic understanding of abundance and Well-Being. Whether you are focused upon the shortage of money—or seeing yourself as having only so many years to live (and so each day that is expended is one day closer to the end of your years)—that feeling of decline is contrary to your broader understanding of the Eternal nature of your Being.

t the WFP meeting yesterday it struck me, there is so much food in Africa, I have seen it with my own eyes! The whole drought thing, I take that with a pinch of salt now! There are fruits that grow like wild grass, mangoes and paw paw’s at the side of the road like wild berries! The issues are distribution of the food!
OK so the people in the camps need to eat, I get that! But the red tape and standards and not wanting “bad publicity” I don’t. Just feed the bloody people!
They tell me it would be a publicity nightmare if the people are fed bad food! What is bad food? And why put these stringent measures that take time to get the food to the needy? Is there another way apart from what was done ten years ago? Can we teach them how to fish rather than give them the fish?
I sat there listening and thinking about this yesterday, while we talked about getting food to them, they remain hungry!
So what did I learn today?
Systems are needed yes, I think systems with a balance with some love thrown in will always work rather than fear of what can go wrong!
The old saying of give a man a fish just became crystal clear!
