Amira Willighagen singing “O mio babbino caro”

I’ve been following world news the last weeks and getting more and more depressed! Needless to say it has not inspired to write at all. I wonder when the media will wake up to bring us good happy inspiring news of which there is much also around the world. If they would include just one such happy story in their news every day, it would lift up the spirit.

Here I found this which I’d like to share with you, it’s really food for the soul, listen to this 9 year old little girl Amira singing  an aria from the opera Gianni Schicchi (1918) by Giacomo Puccini ! Sit back close your eyes and listen with your soul. You can find more about her on you tube.

There are so many gifted children around the world it’s uplifting refreshing inspiring and encouraging too. This in spite of all the evil ugly violent news of human beings full of hate and ignorance behaving more like animals than humans. I have to stop watching the general news on TV and focus more on surfing the web for the good news.

Take a few moments to relax and enjoy!

 

Alerts to Threats in 2015 Europe from John Cleese!

Remember John Cleese? he’s funny! Here’s a foto of him to remind you. I have to admit he still looks good! No puffed lips job, no eyes lift and jaws lifts, that give him that permanent surprise look! Of course he looks older, but still handsome and above all natural. And what more he still has a sense of humor! Screen Shot 2015-09-13 at 18.31.52

I am sharing this article posted on my private Facebook versus my professional Facebook page. Posted by Raja Choudry who shared Bernadette Bunge’s photo. So now that I have given the credit to where its due I shall copy the article here below for you to read. It’s brilliant.

ALERTS TO THREATS IN 2015 EUROPE From JOHN CLEESE

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorised from “Tiresome” to “A Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

The Scots have raised their threat level from “Pissed Off” to “Let’s get the Bastards.” They don’t have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from “Run” to “Hide.” The only two higher levels in France are “Collaborate” and “Surrender.” The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France ‘s white flag factory, effectively paralysing the country’s military capability.

Italy has increased the alert level from “Shout Loudly and Excitedly” to “Elaborate Military Posturing.” Two more levels remain: “Ineffective Combat Operations” and “Change Sides.”

The Germans have increased their alert state from “Disdainful Arrogance” to “Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs.” They also have two higher levels: “Invade a Neighbour” and “Lose.”

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels ..

The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from “No worries” to “She’ll be right, Mate.” Two more escalation levels remain: “Crikey! I think we’ll need to cancel the barbie this weekend!” and “The barbie is cancelled.” So far no situation has ever warranted use of the last final escalation level.

Regards,
John Cleese ,
British writer, actor and tall person

And as a final thought – Greece is collapsing, the Iranians are getting aggressive, and Rome is in disarray. Welcome back to 430 BC.

Life is too short…

Infinite Spirit! Impossible to destroy!

Last year’s war between Israel and Hamas killed an estimated 2’205 Palestinians and 71 Israelis. Reconstruction is only just getting underway of the estimated 18’000 housing units in Gaza that were destroyed or severely damaged during the 50-day conflict. One of the big mysteries of life! You can kill and destroy as much as you want but Spirit lives on! The human Spirit and hope is alive and thrives. Here’s proof of that. Don’t you ever wonder how some people can survive the worst of atrocities done unto them and they still survive, not only that, but hope and create beauty to boot? I am always in awe of the human spirit! Here’s an article crossed my desk this morning about a colourful neighbourhood in the middle of Gaza Strip.

The injustice, horrors, indignities and humiliation that these people have to suffer on a daily basis and still……  Read the article and watch the videos. In a video from the Institute for Middle East Understanding, an American non profit org that aims to increase the public’s awareness of Palestinians, Saedi, a Palestinian artist, explains just how his vision for an environment filled with beauty came to spread. So far 30 homes in the neighbourhood have been painted, much to the delight of Al Zaytoon’s younger residents. They call it Al Zaytoon neighbourhood. Zaytoon is the arabic word for olives. Gaza Strip Their olive farms, their livelihood, that have been taken from them by force by the Israelis driving them out of their homes of many generations.  These Palestinians have no army no navy and no air force so how can it be called a war? It’s like David and Goliath. Goliath has stepped in, massacred destroyed occupied and taken what they ever want regardless and exercises an apartheid regime to boot, to trample some more on the weaker. Let’s just say it how it is. No matter on which side your sympathies lie  you have to see this injustice for what it is.  How can we find peace in our world if these things continue based on pure ugly hate. What leaves me speechless is the very fact that nobody ever mentions. The Israelis say nothing about what the Germans did to them, all their hate about the holocaust has shifted to the Arabs. Are they too scared of the Germans and they don’t dare, so they vent their hate against the weaker and now do the same unto the Palestinians? Or is this subject taboo? Not to mention so many other just as bad atrocities that people have suffered all over the world that have been forgotten and are never mentioned.

The way things are going for us today I think we have many other dangers that we need to really worry about, dangers that are much more serious and much bigger than what we can imagine, that are threatening our very existence and civilised way of life. Not enough attention is given to that. Again I wonder why. Give me beauty, peace, laughter, harmony, love, compassion and joy, any time all the time. That is what we are here to enjoy. To live and enjoy and let others live and enjoy too. Sounds naive, I don’t think so. Just aware and practical. Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 08.36.07 From the stones of the destruction we will build plant basins to grow flowers. Said told IMEU.

Manipulating The Masses!

Now here’s something that I did not know and perhaps you didn’t either. And even if you did perhaps it’s good to be reminded.
Man Dead 20 Years Still Manipulating The Masses: Coercing Citizens To Believe In Phoney Wars & More. Here’s what Noam Chomsky a man I admire, had to say “Citizens of the democratic societies should undertake a course of intellectual self-defence to protect themselves from manipulation and control, and to lay the basis for meaningful democracy.”
The man they’re talking about is Edward Bernays (never heard of him before now) one of the most influential people of the 20th century. So few have heard of this man who has manipulated much of western society into compliance. His philosophies and understanding of the human psyche still shape public policy, political campaigns, and corporate integration to this day. How corporations deliver their messages, how politicians coerce citizens to believe and enter into phoney wars, how terrorism is promoted and engenders fear into the masses, and how Think Tanks are used to manipulate citizens were all in the realm of Edward Bernays. hmmmm…. He happens to be Freud’s nephew! I am not a fan of Sigmund Freud. 
I found this article on this website collective-evolution.com (and I love this footnote) powered by a Bunch of Crisp Kids and as for copyright…who needs a copyright? they say.
Now to get back to Bernays

Bernays Wrote “Propaganda,” A 159 Page Manuscript On How To Manipulate The Masses
(tried to find that on google couldn’t find it) here’s what it said: Some results may have been removed under data protection law in Europe.)

But here’s the article about him read it for yourself
http://www.collective-evolution.com/2015/06/27/man-dead-20-years-still-manipulating-the-masses-coercing-citizens-to-believe-in-phoney-wars-more/

and I found this on you tube  here’s a short video

Scary stuff…scary because the majority live in total ignorance of being manipulated. They really live in a fantasy world where they think they’re free, masters of their decisions, making their own choices. If you’re one of the few who have not watched the movie The Matrix, then it’s time you did. Are you one of the zombies walking around asleep? Many are waking up but it’s still not enough we need many more, many more, to WAKE UP!

Economics and the Four Horsemen!

15 May, 2015
A must see video for everyone who is interested in what goes on in our world of economics why so many suffer famine at one end of the world and why others are obese from over eating at the other end of the world. Or why only the few rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Why we have terrorists etc. This video is in English with French sub-titles. Here what famous economists and philosophers are saying. If you care about your own future and that of your children and grand children watch this. This is not only about the United States but about the whole world you included.

Is the Value of your Money About to Change?

I really believe in general knowledge especially information that affects our lives. Some people prefer to bury their head in the sand and stay in their comfort zone afraid of the unknown, and others really want to know! Here’s a video with important information.So grab a cup of coffee, settle down to watch and listen attentively.

The Real Truth About Religion and Its Origins!

Interesting video to watch that will give those who are very religious something to think about! Or should I say re-think about? It will definitely make you shuffle the circuits in your brain around! We are living in the age of information and all esoteric knowledge is now being revealed. So here you have some of it.
I’ve been very busy writing my book on The Illumined Heart and Mind the past months so I haven’t spent much time on surfing and looking for interesting educational mind opening news! Sorry! I plan to have my book available for sale by the end of this month!

Masaru Emoto and Water Crystals!

Today I received a message and a video in my e mail box that reminded me of something that I had forgotten about and I’d like to share this with you. Dr. Masaru Emoto is a Japanese author and entrepreneur who is President of the International Water for Life Foundation, a non-profit organisation based in Oklahoma in the US. He believes that energies or vibrations can change water physically and structurally. You can read all about his work on the web. The Scientific community apparently is not happy with nor acknowledge his experiments. What else is new! Right?

Dr. Emoto’s book The Hidden Messages of Water was a New York Times bestseller. This was way back in 1999 and I bought his book immediately after I read about him. I am definitely one of his fans. Ever since then I am more aware of water and how I drink it and use it. Soon after I read his book I invited him to come to give a presentation in Switzerland but for whatever reason this never happened at the time. Although Dr. Emoto and his message about water has many followers, he is still having a problem with scientists who are still unable to wrap their brain around this idea. For me personally it makes total sense.

Dr. Emoto says that water is a blueprint for our reality, which can change with a single, positive thought. All it takes is faith, if you’re open to it. He also says that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water. He shows this by observing crystals in water. You can read about this in detail if you’re interested here.

We know our bodies contain anything from 50% – 75% water, depending on our age. We know that we are emotional beings. We know that water represents emotions. We also know that we are influenced by and react to sound, vibrations, words and environment. So what’s the difference if the water is in a glass or a lake?

Do you know that you can actually talk to a glass of water before you drink the water, you can send it waves of love for example, or you can write words of love or any attributes that you would like to have, always positive of course, and place a bottle, a glass or a jar of water on top of the note with the written words. I believe water has its own intelligence, as everything else has that is created in this complex and magnificent world that we live in.

Anyway do watch this video below and then decide whether you want to pursue this further, perhaps read one of Dr. Emoto’s books or surf the web for more upto date info about his research. Watch the crystals changing shape, sometimes looking like diamonds, and reaching perfect structures when the singer hits the high notes. It’s beautiful to watch. If that is not proof enough that the water is alive and reacting to sound then I don’t know what is.

I for one will follow Dr. Emoto on his Facebook and twitter so I don’t miss out on any new research that he does. And I shall quickly write a note to put on my desk, to place my glass of water on. A loving note that I want to give to myself.

The Dancing Candy Floss Maker!

We had Candy Floss even in Baghdad when I was a kid! But this a far cry from how it was made and served. As exciting as it was then, this here just beats it. Using modern technology and lively music who can resist candy floss? I watched this and could literally taste the candy floss! Nowadays I think you can buy it only when its circus time or some other public fair. We used to have the candy floss makers standing on the road side the whole summer through! I love it.

WADJDA in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

The movie is an authentic Saudi Arabian, written and directed by a Saudi Arabian female, Haifaa al Mansour. It gives us a little peek into women’s lives in Saudi Arabia. I repeat only a little peek. If you are intrigued about this closed society where women are treated as second class citizens, who have to cover up in black, their faces hidden in public with no freedom rights, whose sole purpose is to please and do men’s bidding, then you’ll want to watch this. The dialogue is in Arabic but with English subtitles.
Its wonderful to see the spirit of this little girl, her motivation, determination, vision, desire, and I only wonder how long will it take to break her spirit! When she gets married off to an older man before she’s fifteen and then perhaps later even more, when he gets his second or third or fourth wife legally? They (I think you know who I mean by they) enjoy all the modern technology plus some because they can afford it but they have not yet evolved enough to understand that it is the male who determines the gender of the child and not the female, that woman is just as important as man in the scheme of life, that freedom is a universal law, that men who are evolved are able control their sex desires and do not have to attack a woman just because they see her face! (sorry I had to I just had to let it out)
And how dismal to see all those women walking around in black! ‘God’ which is Arabic for ‘Allah’ has nothing but abundance in the universe, just note all the colours of nature!
Do you see the bitterness, anger and despair in some of the teachers’ faces as they impose the impossible rules of their society on the younger girls?
More interesting even is to read about the director and how the movie was made
on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wadjda Enjoy!

By the way I want to say thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart, to all who are following my blog, for all the encouraging comments, and those who share my blogs with their followers. I do enjoy reading all your comments so here’s an official thank you, and a huge warm hug to one and all.
May nothing but love and peace reign on earth! May there be an end to this chaos, madness and ignorance! If only intelligence were contagious, we would have heaven on earth!
