I grew up in the BVI during the second World War and the post war years before ministerial government came into effeçt in 1967. Those war years, post war years, and pre ministerial years were years of reclaiming, repossessing, and restructuring this Territory. B. V. Islanders were united in forging a society that was independent, transparent, caring, altruistic, hard-working, Godfaring, and resourceful with respect for the dignity of humankind. We are reminded that we have an earthly heritage of which we can be proud. Today some of us are trampling on it in our rush to possess wealth for which we did not work. This is a violation of the principles of our heritage. It is time to slow down and reflect on the intangible riches with which we are endowed.
"You will bloom in your own time if you water yourself."
A faithful man(woman) will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not unpunished. (Proverbs 28:20)
"Be kind to yourself as you proceed along this journey. This kindness, in itself, is a means of awakening the spark of love within you and helping others to discover that spark within themselves ( Tsoknyl Rimpoche).
Theŕefore, store up for yourselves treasurés in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy and whrre thieves do not break ln and steal(Matt. 6:20.).
