Beware of flood damage scams

NSW Fair Trading is warning consumers about opportunistic tradespeople trying to take advantage during the flood recovery process as the state gets back on its feet.

Paul Moore, Suffolk Park

Are you aware that Einstein said we can’t solve the problems we have created by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created the problem? Therefore logical problems don’t have logical solutions, and yet that is all science has got to throw at any problem. 

Consider wars, terrorism, a cure for cancer, viruses, climate change etc. By any measure the divide or distance between problem and solution is growing wider and yet you still don’t even realise or see it. A corrupt foundation can never reveal real truth no matter how long and hard you try.

If distrust causes lethargy and trust gives you energy what do you think your contribution to the world might be at this moment in time? Fear, distrust, and lethargy are in the very atmosphere you are all breathing, and you are creating more with every passing day.

The only way out is the transition journey, a seven-year journey from where we are right now back to the second day of our lives (as one day old child) then on to our individual ground zero arrival day, using unconditional love. Taught in mother nature’s womb, formerly known as the creative side of the brain, it is where God has moved all his classrooms and surgical rooms together for added convenience.

Time in the New World is an individual choice lasting only a day so. Around 3am it resets with only a minimal of housecleaning to be done automatically, and life continues on with a brand new foundation forever.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. What on earth is PAUL MOORE trying to say in his ‘Advertisement’ on page 7, of your excellent paper, ‘Echo’?
    That is your Echo of April 8, 2020. I have read the page twice ( plus paragraphs over again). What is he advertsing ? I cannot make sense of it. Can anybody ? Does he belong to a group ? What group ?
