Some 2000 years ago he sent himself, as a human, to speak to us and tell us how to become one with him. and put very little effort into living the lives he told us we need to live to become one with Him. Instead we just talk about God in stories of how he tried to tell us to love our neighbor as ourselves. loving God? Why is it so much easier just to say I believe? I guess it is too hard to give up sex, drugs and rock n roll or working on building up your ego. What God has been trying to tell us is to control our lives and not let our desires control us. We need to make it important to live the lives that God has been telling us how to live, here on earth, not later in It is so hard because we would have to control our desire for sex, drugs and rock n roll and building our ego? We would have to take charge of our lives and control all those wonderful shots of dopamine to our brain that were so necessary for us to survive this long as a species. We have come to a time when we need to start to control them. Just because we cant do it all at once, we dont even try. The secret is that all we have to do is try a little to show our neighbor that we love him and he will begin to love us back. It may take a while but if you dont give up people will respond to you with love. The more you keep doing it the more people will respond to you with love, even the nastiest store clerk will eventually respond to you with love if you if you do not react badly towards them and show them love. We really dont have much time left to do this. Our way of life is seriously damaging this planet and is not sustainable. We are affecting the temperature of are at constant battle with each other. We need to stop and listen to the spiritual leaders who tried to tell us how live to in this world. dha and Christ all told us to love thy neighbor. There are many ways to learn to live your life that way, have to live your live that way; you cant just believe it, you have to do it. The greatest disrespect that we can show to God is to continue to study God rather than live our lives as he has shown us how to live them. Religion has a wonderful hierarchy and leaders get lots of good feelings leading people, but very, very few of them are spiritual leaders. Religion is not a spiritual path, read about it in the paper, religious leaders sending youth out to blow themselves up. Read about it in the history books, the Crusades the Inquisition. the Garden of Eden; our religions have kept us at war with each other, just as our kings and presidents have kept us at war with each other, no more and no less. This is not the way God has been trying to teach us to Folks this is not hard, it is a very fun way to live your life. It doesnt mean you cant get angry with someone, it just means that you have to control your self and not hurt the other person. If you do hurt the other person you have to make it right with them, whatever it takes. It doesnt mean you have to give up sex, drugs and rock n roll or being a leader, you have to learn how to control yourself so the dopamine shot to your brain as yourself. spiritually like Christ tried to teach us. I guess you really have to live your life like Christ told us to live to really teach it. It must be a lot easier and gratifying to your ego to use religion as a way of leading people, the more the better, rather then it is to live the life that Christ taught us to live. This really is not hard, if a rich man asks for your just give it to him. In your daily lives, at home, at work, on the street, love thy neighbor as yourself. Treat people the way you would like to be treated. Dont worry if it does not feel good immediately, it will, soon. As soon as we can start to treat each other with respect and love, we have to start teaching our children that we love them and to help them to love themselves so it will be possible for them to love others. We are destroying this planet as a habitat for humans. We are killing off many, many of the species are changing the climate and weather patterns that all present forms of life depend on. This is not sustainable. God tried to tell us to be good to each other when amples of how to do it. Why is it that the Pharisees still do not want to learn how to do it and then teach it to us?

The aniKeep up the good work! Pam Delaney and family Big ups to Dr. John of St. John Dental and his team of professional It was necessary for me to have dental implants and because of Dr. John and his connection to Dr. Rob Wardius from PA, this procedure is able to take place right here on St. John. Dr. Rob is fantastic. From the pre-op meeting, to the explicit instructions for post-op care, through the implant day itself, you could lee. Follow up post surgery phone calls from Dr. Rob, to be sure I was doing OK proved they are caring and committed to your comfort. If you need dental implants, do not hesitate to have St. John Dentals team accomplish this procedure. Regards, Captain John Brandi S END LETTERS GUEST OPINIONS & OBITUARIES: editor@tradewinds.viBig Ups T o Dr. John of St. John Dental for Great Care Great T o See Feral Cats Cared For Wow, no wonder so many people on St. John have no respect for this paper. Everyone is supposed to get all upset about someone taking apart a plywood box. A plywood box, folks, and everyone is supposed to ignore the fact that starve to death. They not only left them to starve to death, they refused to even come and pick up the tame ones when asked by several people and told us not to bring them to the shelter because they wouldnt acthis large colony of cats the ACC dumped here in the which were so sick, one has already died How about getting upset about the fact that this is the second time in my neighborhood alone the ACC has abandoned a colony of cats they dumped here to starve to death. They have left other colonies of cats on the island to starve as well. Get upset about the fact the ACC has started dumping more cats in my neighborhood to start the process all over again. These four new cats (which I am sure will soon turn into 25 or 30) were left without food and water for three days. When I complained to the members of the ACC Board, I was told to feed them myself. the people of St. John and their pets, dumps 300+ cats poor cats come directly from their own shelter (and everyone knows it). They are given no health care of any kind and are not even fed regularly. They are exposed to every disease and parasite there is which are spread by the true ferals that eat, drink and defecate killed by cars, dogs or get their eyes pecked out by the mobs of chickens supported by these boxes. vet Canines, Cats and Critters, claim they spay 300 trapped feral cats a year yet when I brought in two ferals I had trapped by my house I was told they were nothing for the people of St. John, and their pets. matter how needy. I have paid to have four families pets spayed out of my own pocket. I think you would shelter animals or assist the people of St. John with microchipping their pets. They hold no microchip clinics and last I checked they dont even have a chip scanner at the shelter. They dont advertise found pets in the papers. They dont keep found tame cats several days to be claimed by their owners. They rarely go out and pick up strays or injured pets when called. They dont accept lost pets in their shelter when they are full. These are all services provided by the shelters on St. Thomas and St. Croix as well as most other shelters in the world. from public and private donors with little transparen cy as to what is done with the funds. A shelter that has been run by the same small group of people for many years now. A small group of people who have recently gutted the Board of Directors so they have even less oversight. They sure arent engaging in normal shelter done with the funds. Of course there is that nebulous by visiting my neighborhood. They would have you not true. I know at least one of these volunteers gets $1,000 a month from the ACC for little or no work. And to you naive people of St. John who think you by the ACC. I dont object to euthanasia. I do object to the ACC not telling the truth (which they seem to I foster for the ACC. He put on over 40 pounds in a month. The ACC had agreed to pay part of his very expensive medical bill but reneged. I guess it had to go in some ACC Board member pocket. As for that plywood box, maybe the ACC broke it up themselves to get some undeserved sympathy. It would be just like them.
