I, too, had a dream... I asked
God to be with me as I dreamed:
I dreamed I had all the money in the world and I was wide
awake... What would I do to end hunger and poverty and crime?
My first thought was to give access to cash to everyone on earth
via their own banking atm cards... (This I'd have to do or else
I'd cause envy and jealousy). I'd own the banks, of course, so
it would be easy to set up a system whereby people could use
their own banking details to access the unending funds...
Right, I thought, that is solved... Now everyone has enough
money to do what they need to do...
and hopefully, they will help their neighbours who don't have
access to banks...
Then, I had to think: How am I going to keep the flow of money
steady for all the needy people?
Of course, I would invest a lot of the money into the businesses
that people would be using to make their dreams come true, like
buying cars, houses, clothing, luxury foods and drinks... Then,
I thought, the money won't run out as I'll keep on getting
returns on my investments...
Ah, so I had to stop and think hard: Who is going to be left to
manufacture and make all the things available to the people? I
mean, no one would NEED to work as they'd have all the money they
I thought to myself: is this the road back to slavery? Is this
why the streets will be filled with gold and rubies and diamonds?
Will it all amount to naught? Will water be clean and fit for
slaking our thirst?
I was full of questions and had no ready answer to solve the
biggest problem of all: WHO IS GOING TO SERVE THE PEOPLE?
Who is going to be at the hospital to nurse and doctor?
Who is going to be at the restaurant to cook and dish up and
Who is going to protect the good people from the bad people?
...and on and on...
It raised, too, the question of WHAT exactly will people be using
the money for? I'm thinking like a good person, buying food and
living well; BUT, will the drug addict not buy more and stronger
drugs? Will the alcoholic not move up to stronger drugs? Will
the warring sects not buy more powerful weapons to protect their
My dream crashed heavily and I was glad that I didn't have all
the money in the world... No way, I wouldn't be able to sleep at
night... and of course, there wouldn't be much sleeping done
once every one had access to an infinite amount of money because
there would be no one to serve their needs...
Nope, my silly little daydream turned into a BIG nightmare, and
so I turned it off...
I decided to share it with you, though, because a problem shared
is a problem halved, and see if anybody else can relate to this
I am happy with the little or lot that I have, depending on who's
judging, and I definitely don't want to go down into that little
scheme again... I make a few dollars a day and that is good
enough for me... I don't need more cars than I can drive, and I
don't like driving anyways as I'm too darned the best paranoid
schizophrenic in the world, and I don't need a mansion because I
couldn't clean it myself being a person who wouldn't ever want a
slave, and I don't need to impress anybody with flashing clothing
Most certainly, I don't need to dream that dream anymore - I have
found it to be most distressing as it raises the question as to
WHO controls the monies of the world and how they are dealing
with it... Perhaps they are as scared of what is happening as am
Thank Heaven's I know the Lord's Prayer and have Bible verses in
my heart to turn to, and believe that God is in control of
EveryOne and EveryThing, and that He alone - and only He - knows
how to sort out each precious life.
I feel sorry that so many people are deprived from knowing the
Creator of Everything, and that He is no longer a part of
everyday life for many... Just like God created Mankind, Mankind
created the computer, robots and automation, and without ORDER
and DISCIPLINE and a LOVE for Creation, Mankind and what he has
created will slowly disintegrate...
I can't change the world and its many ways, but I can shine my
little light and hope that it may lead one to change their
attitute: YOU CAN'T CHANGE YOUR SPOTS, BUT YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR
So, that dream of having all the money in the world is scary for
me... Is it scary for you? Can you see a way to make it all
