For everything I want to thank you,
for so much you have given me in terms of help
and the wonderful people in my life and the
fantastic planet I live on, … but
I need more help.
The world is a mess and I have my own
personal challenges and weaknesses as you know.
I do wonder of course how you could have the
time to hear my prayers or my thoughts,
there being over seven billion people on Earth
and millions of galaxies full of other people
so it certainly looks like a bureaucracy of
Then again, of you we have high expectations.
A guy showed up here and said he had a message
from you and one of things he said was,
"You will be judged accordingly as you have judged others."
A fair warning.
I wanted to remind you of that.
People talk about you.
Whatever your reputation, you probably have
earned it just as I have earned mine.
Maybe I look like a failure.
You should take a good look at yourself too,
