For The Love Of God

When we breathe our last breath the only thing that will go with us
is the love we have given.

For a long time I have wanted to do something with my life
to reach out to the world and bring it back to its Father

It is Christmas Eve 2004, a good time to start, the eve before Christ's Birth, I see so much going wrong with our world the world he created for us gave to us as a gift.

At this time I do not know exactly what it is I am going to do, only that something has to be done, to bring the world back to god.

God did not make us good or make us bad, he just made us and left the choice to us.

I do not profess to be better than others neither do I belong to any particular church or version of the Christian religion.

I do read the bible and have read it from cover to cover for the last 15 years.
27 01 05. I believe that all the troubles that plague mankind are brought about by our own evil ways, before you dismiss my words, have you read the bible ?

If you profess to believe in God first read his instruction book.

The Old Testament is full of stories about the Israelites and how God punished them to try and correct there behaviour, did all that suddenly stop?

The punishment handed out by God was very very harsh but necessary, the behaviour of this present generation is headed for disaster.

course and vulgar do not even start to describe what is put forward as normal in this age.
When I was a young man I thought things had to get better, instead they have got much worse.

the main form of entertainment television has become a curse, full of violence and bad behaviour. Switch through the channels any time and you are faced with violence, bad mouthed individuals and explicit sex.

I have nothing against sex, but being entertained by watching others is not right.

Time and again in the bible it states that sex is something between a man and a woman, how can a country that is built on the Christian religion legalize anything else.

I understand that people have different desires, but it is giving in to them that is the sin, we all wont things, but we have to learn to try and control those desires.
Prier to my birth in 1945 terrible thing had happened, nothing has been learned by it, younger and younger people are taking control of things as time passes, with less and less experience.

Age does not make you smarter, just wiser, because you have more to drawer on.
11 06 05 So many of our problems could be sorted out, but no one wants to listen, it is as if they all want the disaster that will eventually overtake the human race.

God exists, he is real, if he did not, there would be no right or wrong, just mans will, how terrible that would be.

This beautiful song was played on Radio Luxemburg
at close down back in the 60's and 70's.
At the end of the day just kneel and say
“Thank you, Lord, for my work and play”.
I’ve tried to be good, for I know that I should
That’s a prayer for the end of the day.

So when the new dawn begins to break
Just lift up your eyes, let your heart awake
Be ready to meet what the day may send
And be ready to greet every man as a friend

Nobody knows what a power you have found
So do what you can for the others around
Carry them high when they seem to be low
As on your way you go.

At the end of the day just kneel and say
“Thank you, Lord, for my work and play”.
I’ve tried to be good, for I know that I should
That’s my prayer at the end of the day.

At the end of the day just kneel and say
“Thank you, Lord, for my work and play”.
I’ve tried to be good, for I know that I should
That’s my prayer at the end of the day.

In Memory of my dear Mum and Dad the best people I have ever known
it is 20 years since they left but I still think of them each day.

POEM: I wish we could go back | WordUp by Chad Gramling

I wish we could go back

I wish we could go back;
back to a time before people
looked for reasons to take offense.
To a time when we loved one another
without regard to our selfish interests
and built walls of personal cells.

I wish we could go back;
and tell those we’ve loved,
and those we’ve lost,
the way we really felt;
and could speak
with honesty,
and integrity.

I wish we could go back,
to a time when genuine
was a trait that was

Feelings might get hurt,
but if we could go back,
to a time when we
respected others;
the pain would sting less
and maybe - just maybe -
we could make humanity
a better race. And in turn,
make this earth a better place.

This year, as you gather one and all
take hands and experience the joy
of Christmas; and
remember the one true King.

Thank each other . . . just for being there.
Share your love as did He;
and don’t wish later
that you’d done it then . . . if only,
you could go back.

Owning too much stuff drives us into a spiral of sadness, says a new book. Or is the real problem "misery-creep", where everyday unhappiness is being rebranded as depression?

We all know the old saying: "Riches won't make you happy." But is it possible that riches - or even aspiring to be rich and wanting to live a Footballers' Wife-style life of luxury - might make us mentally ill?

Clinical psychologist Oliver James claims in his new book The Selfish Capitalist: Origins of Affluenza, that "selfish capitalism" (the kind of capitalism we have in Britain) is making us sick. Literally.

He says the emergence of selfish capitalism, first under Margaret Thatcher and later Tony Blair, has led to a "startling increase in the incidence of mental illness".

We might live more comfortable and stuff-filled lives than our forebears did, but James believes the rise of materialism has come with a high price tag attached - widespread anxiety and depression.

Experts believe 10% of Britons are compulsive shoppers
On the surface, we seem better off than earlier generations. For example, home ownership in Britain has risen dramatically in recent decades. In 1953, the proportion of owner-occupiers of homes in England was 32%. That figure rose to 43% in 1961, 51% in 1971, and it peaked at 75% in 1981. Today around 70% of homes in England are owner-occupied.

In the past, having a TV was seen as an indicator of wealth and class. Now, according to a study carried out by marketing and information group CACI, the average UK home has 4.7 television sets. A study by Lloyds TSB found that seven out of 10 children have a TV in their rooms and half of them have a DVD player too.

And like a nation of Inspector Gadgets, we have stacks of devices that make life more pleasant. In the past families were lucky if they owned a gramophone and a few dusty records to play on it. Today 17% of web users in Britain - and that's a lot of people - own an iPod and can listen to sweet music any time, any place.

'Unrealistic desires'

As the capitalist economy has grown, life seems to have improved: cheap food is widely available (our grandparents can only have dreamt of getting two chickens for the equivalent of a fiver in their local supermarket), and most of us own our homes, drive cars, and have TVs, DVDs and MP3s.

Can it really be the case that as we've become more comfortable, we've also become mentally ill?

"The citizens of selfish capitalist countries are twice as likely to suffer from a mental illness as the citizens of countries in mainland western Europe, which practise 'unselfish capitalism'," argues James.

A woman shopping
We're 'bombarded with messages to buy, buy, buy'
He says studies show that 23% of Americans, Britons, Australians, New Zealanders and Canadians - all English-speaking "selfish capitalist" nations - suffered mental ill-health in the past 12 months. But only 11.5% of Germans, Italians, French, Belgians, Spaniards and Dutch experienced mental problems.

The message is clear, he says: "Selfish capitalism is bad for your mental health."

The main problem is that where the average English-speaking person's real wage has broadly remained the same since the 1970s, he or she is now constantly bombarded with messages to buy, buy, buy, and aspire to a Posh-and-Becks quality of life, according to James.

"It is not economic inequality between the rich and the working classes that causes mental illness, though that certainly still exists," says Mr James. "It is the combination of that inequality with an all-pervasive consumerist culture which constantly tells people 'it could be you' you could be a well-off winner too."

Definitions of illness

"The media, advertising, reality TV shows and so on, they give people unrealistic aspirations that they simply cannot meet with their wages and living standards. As a result, people get sucked into competitiveness and workaholism.

"We end up tirelessly striving for material wealth and valuing it over family and friendships. This really heaps pressure on people, damaging their health."

Yet others are suspicious of the notion that Britain is in the grip of "affluenza". Simon Wessely, professor of epidemiological and liaison psychiatry at King's College, London, believes that cultural factors, not capitalism itself, have created a situation where more people define themselves as mentally ill.

I would lay the blame less at the door of Margaret Thatcher's selfish capitalism, and more at the door of Richard and Judy or Oprah
Professor Simon Wessely
"In this country, rates of actual mental illness are not increasing," he says. "Studies by the Office for National Statistics, repeated over a decade, do not show an increase in all neurotic disorders, depressive disorders or depression."

"It is true that rates of self-reported symptoms are on the rise," says Wessely, but that has to be seen in a context where "more human experiences" are seen as illnesses nowadays.

"In my trade, for example, states of sadness are now seen as 'depression', shyness has become 'social phobia', and all sorts of variations in childhood temperament, personality, emotions and behaviour have become characterised as diseases that need treatment, be it Asperger's autism or ADHD."

Mr Wessely believes that this "therapy culture" means that people now regard as abnormal things that "previous generations regarded as part and parcel of normal variations in personality and emotion". So what earlier generations saw as an everyday struggle to make ends meet might now be referred to as stress or workaholism.


"I would lay the blame less at the door of Margaret Thatcher's selfish capitalism, and more at the door of Richard and Judy or Oprah," says Mr Wessely.

Daniel Ben-Ami, author of Cowardly Capitalism: The Myth of the Global Financial Casino, agrees: "The key difference between the Anglo-Saxon countries and continental Europe is that the medicalisation of social problems has not gone as far in Europe as it has in Britain or America."

Mr Ben-Ami argues that the "affluenza" argument, where unrealistic desires for wealth are seen as the harbinger of mental health problems, shows how inequality has been redefined.

Society's 'based around consumption'
"Today it's widely assumed that the solution to inequality is restraining growth and consumption, in order to protect people from ill-health. In the past, tackling inequality would have meant calling for more growth and increased consumption for the mass of society."

Yet consumerism can be seriously addictive for some. Some experts believe 10% of Britons, and possibly 20% of British women, are manic, compulsive shoppers whose condition can lead to family break-ups, depression and in some instances suicide. An American pharmaceutical firm is developing a pill to help wean shopaholics off their addiction.

In a book titled Stop Me Because I Can't Stop Myself, a compulsive shopper called "Gloria" describes how she shopped online for six to eight hours a day, ending up in $80,000 of debt. She lost her job and split from her husband and checked into a psychiatric institution after "shopping ruined my family".

Oliver James remains convinced that rabid consumerism can have a detrimental impact on mental health. "It is time we valued what is truly important," he says, "rather than focusing society around competitiveness and consumption."
