greetings to all my brothers and sisters

i wanted to know how the I in amerika balance thier life. Work in amerika is no joke. In amerika you have to work to survive, unlike other places you can relax and work a little. but in amerika if you dont have money u cant live. what activity or stuff you do to free your mind from the fast pace life.for me is playing futbol (soccer), and attending reggae spots, and smoking herb with the I. and meditating on the holy words.

Stay Strong, i'mm off to my 3rd shift

For me, moving to a less expensive place to reside from CA, which was very hard to continue to live; especially as a single parent.

I am thinking of buying an RV and travelling a bit, staying in Florida, CA and the Southwest, teaching my son about the earth, it's rythyms, roadschooling and there is the ability to work at the RV sites in exchange for monthly rent (about $400 monthly in Florida) the sites include all utils, cable and wireless 'net usually.

where do you reside now?

Is a good subject as I am plaaning to soend part of my life in Amerikkka, I am worrying how would life be there? will I be able to get Ital food as I do here in Afrika? will people there love and respect me? + + +....
Here in afrika the old stigma of ...I can't take you inna mi bus your hair will toych others... is ruling we are confused and decide to abandon this life, but being in amerikka for some time will make them respect me when i am back here.
I have to move there to keep a rasta soul alive.

Young Lion, you said,
In amerika you have to work to survive, unlike other places you can relax and work a little.

Have you ever lived anywhere outside of America for a few years, providing for yourself? Don't imagine that you can go somewhere else and relax and work a little. If you do that you will likely have even less than you would get in america. Many countries in the world don't have welfare for people who don't work, so if you don't work to feed yourself you won't get fed.

People who do try to live with only a little work can do that for a certain amount of time, especially when they have family or friends helping them. But eventually they can no longer continue in that way and then they run into sufferation because they wasted the previous years not building up and preparing for the future. So when future becomes the present, they run around and still can't achieve anything.

Don't forget:
cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

This is our existence, because we daily refuse the Most High God. It is hard now and it has always been hard.

Some people in america think they can go somewhere else to have things easier and some people in other countries think they can go to america to have things easier. How wrong both people are, they usually find that out when they get to the other side and the grass isn't as green as it looked on the television or as green as they were told.
