"Happiness is inward, and not outward; and so, it does not depend on what we have, but on what we are."

- Henry Van Dyke (1852-1933)

author, educator, clergyman

 

Few years ago I was invited to a documentary movie

made by Canadian Internationall Development Agency

(CIDA), the movie was about the country of Mozambique,

which is next to South Africa.

After the independence from Portugal, the country was

left in a sad state, no jobs and bad economy. However,

the people lived off the land by farming and

handicrafts, and people were happy and content with

the simple and family life. Then the materialistic

bug made the man folks to go and work in the gold,

diamond and copper mines in South Africa with better

pay than the subsidence living. After going to South

Africa the man got infected by HIV/Aids virus, and

when they returned home to the families they infected

their wives/women, and therefore the whole generation

of man and woman died due to Aids. The children were

left with grand parents only. The moral of the this

true story justifies the quote in this message. This

message applies to all who value materialistic goods and have given up on religious and moral ways of life. Amen.

Aspi Maneckjee.
