Billy Balowski (Alexei Sayle): I've not always been mad, you know, but um...I was actually driven mad by the indifference of architects and council planners. You see, I live in a tower block, and um, the thing about those is, there's terrible noise problems, 'cause there's no noise insulation at all, you know, and eight floors below you, there's always some bastard who's got a Yamaha home organ, you know. You're just about to go to sleep and you hear this ‘DOOT DOOT! TCH-TCH, DOOT DOOT! TCH-TCH, ROLL-OUT-THE-BARREL! DOOT-DOOT, TCH-TCH, DOOT DOOT, TCH-TCH’ And, like, the people who live upstairs from me, I can't understand what they're doing, you know. I’ll listen. And all I can hear is this weird noise that goes, ‘Voom voom! Blap blap! Voom voom! Blap blap!’ It sounds, right, it sounds like two elephants on a motorbike riding round and round, while a seal bangs a kipper on the table! I went upstairs to complain, and the door was answered by this elephant in a crash helmet! Standing behind him's this seal going, ‘What is it now, Ralph?’ [Places his left hand on his hip and mimics a female seal banging a kipper on a table – hilarious!].
No need to tell me what we're through
It's all over now
- Own that they are there in your service. Ask why they are in your life? The answer is, ‘To serve me.’ Everything in your reality is there to serve you. Some things you would like to stop serving you. What do I believe about me that I require this service? They don’t leave. If you dismiss them they reappear. They change bodies in order to show me what I believe about me whether I believe it in this moment or not.
- They are here to show me I don’t like that one because that is not me for sure! I never act that way. And maybe you do not but in essence you do. If you are not moved by it then you are not doing it yourself.
- Pay attention. Witness it. Look at it. Take it in. This is an opportunity to learn about me, a belief I have about myself. It is all an illusion but it is still dancing in the form of another. Is this what I’d like to hold onto, to keep? In that moment, give it to God. Ask him to clear it at its root and let it go.
- Decide if it is something you’d like to keep or not. Offer it to God. You brought them into your life in steps. When you are a child your mother says you’re a brat and you accept it because she is your God telling you who you are. When you realise you are not that you clean it up with the Grace of the Divine. It is a foolish step to do it alone. It is foolish because you are not alone anyway but also because you need extra power. Say, ‘Please help me with this.’ You created it and you can uncreate it. And when someone shows you kindness it’s something in you too: kindness.
