The Land of Not Too Much!

By David Brandt Berg, Feb 3, 1976
The Land of not too much

IT WAS THE STRANGEST LITTLE DREAM--there wasn't very much to it. I went over these mountains toward the sea, and it was like paradise, going into another world, and I came back and told you about it, how wonderful it was!

And the thing that made it so wonderful was that THERE WASN'T TOO MUCH OF ANYTHING--that's the funniest thing! It was just that simple. In that country it was IMPOSSIBLE to do too much of anything: You couldn't eat too much, you couldn't drink too much, you couldn't work too much, you couldn't sleep too much, you couldn't go too far.

YOU JUST COULDN'T DO TOO MUCH OF ANYTHING.--And that seemed to solve all the problems. Nobody wanted too much, so nobody had too much, and so nobody fought to get too much or had any fights or wars, 'cause nobody wanted too much or more than the other fellow. Nobody wanted too much of anything, nobody had too much of anything.

THERE WAS LOTS OF PEACE and PLENTY and SAFETY and HAPPINESS, BUT NOT TOO MUCH, just ENOUGH for everybody. Everybody had enough to eat and to drink, enough to wear, but not too much. Nobody had too much. The women were very pretty, but they didn't wear too many clothes like they do now. In fact they wore very little but enough--just not TOO much.

AND EVERYBODY HAD THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH WAS THAT NOBODY HAD TOO MUCH or was too much of anything. And that seemed to solve everybody's problems. And I had come back to tell you, all excited about it, about how I'd found a land where everybody's problems were solved by not having too much of anything, by not being able to do too much or go too much or be too much or not be too much or not go too much and not do too much.

EVERYTHING WAS SOLVED BY NOT TOO MUCH. So I guess you'd call it "The Land of Not Too Much" where everybody was content with not too much.

It just seemed to solve EVERYTHING. Nobody was too good or too bad or too proud or too mean or too much of anything. You couldn't do too much or anything like that--it was just impossible. Isn't that funny?

ISN'T THAT A FUNNY DREAM? It was so real to me and I was so excited about it and I was telling you all about it.

So I guess I'd better stop before I tell you too much about the Land of Not Too Much. Is that enough? It's a funny little story for little kids I guess, The Land of Not Too Much. Jesus gave it to me, I didn't think it up. The Land of Not Too Much.

James & Tess Arendt

My name is James Arendt. I was raised in the Hegewisch neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, served in the USAF from 1970 to 1974, and became a full-time missionary for Christ living 40 years in Japan, 3.5 years in Russia, and a few months in other countries such as Finland, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, South Korea, Taiwan and mainland China where I also served the King of Kings, Jesus, as an Ambassador for His Kingdom. My full bio.

If you like this website, you can show your appreciation by sending me a gift toward my support. My wife Tess and I moved from the island of Guam USA in June 2023 to the city of Allen in the province of Northern Samar, one of the poorer provinces in the Philippines. My only work is maintaining my websites, Deep Truths, and James Japan which costs me $300 per year now. And Tess is ministering to the local people giving them regular Bible Studies in three groups, children, teenagers and adults.

You may like my James Japan site as well because it covers subjects that are not covered in Deep Truths such as things like the Climate Change Hoax and the COVID-19 death-jabs.

Lorae Davis (Cairns, Australia) says...
In 1976 in Melbourne some guy was handing out pamphlets and I was given this story. I have never forgotten it. I am 64 now and quoted it often over my life.
This morning my daughter was exhausted from exercise and was hallucinating due to fluid loss..and I said she did too much. Quoted this story and how I was given a single piece of paper 44 years ago. She said why don’t you google it. I did. I found it. It made me cry to see it again. It has been my mantra for all this time.
Admin:
Lorae, I am glad you found that tract you received so long ago on this website! God is good.

Blessings to you from the island of Guam just north of you.
