Extraño e-mail que me llega en momentos en que me disponía a editar estas páginas de Alflora con mi mayor afecto, y al que respondo de inmediato

Dear Friend,
As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Gassim Al-Jafari  a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E.I have been diagnosed with terminal lung  cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone(not even myself) but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give also to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria and Malaysia.
Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria, they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them.
The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of fifteen million dollars $15,000,000 that I have with a Security Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit stashed in a diplomtic box and dispatche it to the less priviledged and hungry.I am failing in health and i have been restricted to a solitary life by the doctors till i die.
I have set aside 30% for your time and service and expenses.
N.B: dear friend, please do reply only to my alternate email address only: for a faster response
God be with you
Gassim Al-Jafari

Dear Gassim Al-Jafari, no doubt I am really surprised by your letter.
First of all I want to advise You that God is Family, no matters what relatives You have.

In Your Ancestrality You have the more biggest treasures You could never reach to imagine. In that sense, You may be completely sure that what You call God will open his doors to receive You as the most valuable creature You would like to be. But You don´t need to give money to anyone that doesn´t belong to Your family, or to someone You particularly Love.

I am also a rich man and I don´t need any more. I live in a marvellous place and You may take notice of what I am saying, by entering in my web page  From there You may enter in additional web pages that developes criteria on environmental subjets, such as river contamination, human settlements on flood valleys and so on. I applied my last 10 years on these subjets and my earnings where the happiness applied to these works.

28 years ago I had a extreme crisis and I intented to give my money to charity institutions. That was a mistake that I had to pay with years of poverty and afective looses. Anyway, in that poverty I became rich again working with my hands on this beautiful place You may see at my internet page.

I have just returned from a trip to Paraguay, having visited an extremely poor family that was in risk to lose his little piece of land, and I intended to help them. The Father of this Family is called Silvino Ozorio Mascareño. He lives at the Compañía Simbrón, near an small village called Quiindy; 107 Kms far from Asunción, the capital city of Paraguay.

This man help his wife Alflora Montiel Vivero, already died at 48, to have and educate 8 sons. This man earns 3 cents of dollar by hour. 40 cents a day working 12 hours daily in his farm. Unbelievable, I know. But I invite You to visit this man and his family through my edited images and You will be enriched at a level that will provide You the happiness You need to reach to make the final trip, before You came again to touch with subttle hands to those You loved or felt compromises in life.

An extraordinary american poet called Ezra Pound once wrote: You will heritage, (and again), You will heritage, only that, You care with Love.

You don´t need to be afraid to cross the unknown  border of Life. You will be closer to the people You loved, NO DOUBT at all.

Being close to the poverty of Silvino Ozorio I enriched my soul in such a way, that I hope in the next days to edit a song of this poverty in my page

In the right up corner of the index page You will discover  the name Alflora (Mother of this Family).  Click on that little area and there I hope to show You the place where They live and the way They Love.

I am feeling now the desire of telling You how extended Families are able to meet again accross time and distance.

Today, the aboriginal Paraguayan population recognize two origins: the one from Australia, and the other from Sarawak at the East of Borneo. They came to the Amazonas territory 5.000 or 6.000 years ago. And the guaraní language they talk belongs to the the old arawak protomalayan language.

So I feel that if You insist to give some of Your treasures to someone, probably You will be surprised when You arrive to heaven and prove that this family may also belongs to You. Charity MUST be only exercized within family territory, because the richness of money is much less than the richness of poverty. And You may risk to approach damage if the family angels that intermediate this help You offer, where not in the best disposition to manage this help.

This Family has relative poor culture, and money could destroy them.

So I will like to anticipate You, the extreme care You will have being at heaven, helping to their destinies with extreme love and consideration of the values they will lose when the money comes. I don´t need to receive compensations because I feel extremely happy with the Life I have, being useful with the creatures I Love.

Write me as many times You want, and I will try to help You to cross the border with confidence and happines, without pain or doubts.
Yours faithfully Francisco Javier de Amorrortu
My baskian name comes from latin Amore Hortu, that translated to spanish means Amor al Huerto ( in english Orchard's Love)

Be in peace with Your feelings. Anyway, if You want to be closer to this Family, in Your new Life You will be in conditions to approach them without forgetting Your Closest Own Family. I will like to know from You, telling me how ancient relatives accross the oceans meets. My soul is fairly open and You will find the way to comunicate these news.

Finally, I would appreciatte that Your closest Family reach this communication. It is very important for You and for me. It is the only thing I beg You Gassim Al-Jafari please. Peace is extended comprehension, and they probably will understand Your urgencies managing generosity; that I repeat You, must be exercized only within Family and closest Friend circles, for being fruitfull.

Francisco Javier de Amorrortu

Esta ajustada cosmovisión de la caridad humana me acerca el recuerdo del inesperado mensaje que el Papa Juan Pablo II entregara en oportunidad de su primer viaje apostólico; el que realizara a España a comienzos de su reinado.

Estaba en Sevilla ante la multitud que colmaba la plaza y no cesaba de aplaudirlo y festejarlo. Y el Dios Viento, Dios de las etnias y los pueblos, Dios de las familias, Dios personalísimo, Dios de los alientos, Espíritu Santo, o como quieran llamarlo, le hizo dar un traspiés a sus humores, expresando a viva voz con inusitado enojo: ¡Uds. los españoles no saben escuchar! Y a continuación les espetó: ¡Basta con la Familia! Y dicho esto, sin añadir una palabra, se marchó de la plaza rumbo al castillo de Francisco de Javier en el otro extremo de la península.

Nunca hasta entonces me había tocado en suerte, imaginar que capturaría de un Papa, en un exabrupto, una expresión tan epifánica: la caridad se practica en Familia; y con eso basta.

A los contrastes de riqueza y pobreza acercamos este regalo que descubre cimiento y espíritu; ocultamiento y destellos; en un mismo cuerpo: Paul Potts

Cuando esta voz, su deslumbrante alma y su ajustado cuerpo decidieron salir a festejar  esfuerzos  en un infinito instante de contenidos sueños, rebalsaron todos los aprecios que nadie imaginaba. Un amor extraordinario regaló por primera vez el don de la presencia a un oculto y sufrido cimiento.

La  humildad de este cimiento que fecundaba una emoción vocal extraordinaria, hizo mis ojos estallar en lágrimas; sumergiéndome una y otra vez en aguas de un brevísimo mundo inagotable; conmoviendo mi espíritu y acariciando, gracias a las suyas, todas mis savias.

¿Era acaso sólo una voz, sólo un sonido...; o un océano? un universo callado y personal que a millones en un mismo instante cohabitaba…
