SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

19 August 2013
Walking in the great outdoors,
Something that I really adore,
Wonder where my feet will go …
Really, really love it so, (x2)
Hi, Everybody! … Hope your feet can see what my feet can see right now …

Oh! What was that? I think I just terrified. So, let us see what I can do here … [turns camcorder to self] … Let us get a little more panoramic view here … No, that will not work.
Thoughts about Money and the Fifth Dimension
I was thinking about money and the fifth dimension, and how hard it is for a lot of people to be making money right now. And I have actually been thinking about the value of money. And it seems to me, when I make money so that I can have a roof over my head, and a kitchen, and a bathroom, and food, it is really different from making money that sits in the bank. You know?
Virtual Money and Food Money
It seems to me like money that sits in the bank is kind of like the internet. It is kind of like an approximation of what is really real. And the money that we put into food, and can taste on our table, is like a different kind of money altogether. [laughs]
So I am in favor of the ‘reality show’ that really is my reality, and not just the ‘reality show’ that is on the internet, or in the bank. That is about money …
Fear-Based versus Need-Based Attitudes Toward Money
It does not hurt to make money; I think it is great. Or to barter with friends for services. It is great! But the problem is, that we only need so much. And our fears … You know, they can make us think we need more than we really need. That is what I think.
So what I would like to do, is to get rid of the fear, and just keep what I have, in the way of money. And make what I need, you know? And not worry about the next guy, who thinks he needs more. [laughs] I mean, if he needs more, that is fine. It is just that fear-based needs do not really create safety, I think.
A Blessing: Luck and Plenty
So, I will let you guys go. And I am going to go look at the beautiful lake out here … see if I can scare up any more coveys of birds, and so forth.
I am thinking about you while I am walking. I am thinking about how lucky I am too. And I hope you are lucky! Talk to you later. May you have everything you need; that is the main thing.
