Starving for Love / Hunger nach Liebe / Faminto por Amor / Hambriento de amor

Some people are just more difficult to love than others. Sometimes it is because they are offensive in some way - they act like jerks, they are ass-holes, they are selfish, they are narcissistic, they are aggressive, they are mean, they are stand-offish and aloof, etc., etc. They are this or they are that. Perhaps they have hurt ...

A life worth Living / Ein lebenswertes Leben / Uma vida que vale a pena Viver / Una vida que vale Vivir

When was the last time you sat down, or took a walk, to think about what makes this one life you have meaningful. What makes it worth living. When was the last time you took a break from solving problems, completing tasks, and pursuing your goals to ask whether those goals were the right ones ...

Life is Short / Das Leben ist Kurz / A vida é Curta / La vida es Corta

You never realize that life is short and it is meant to be lived. Instead, you are immersed in stress, anxiety and fear. Fear. That is a word that you live and die by. Not physically. But emotionally and mentally. Even financially. Yes, sometimes even spiritually. If life is short, you should expect its shortness to ...

People Are not good to each Other / Menschen sind nicht gut Zueinander / As pessoas não são boas um para Outro / Las personas no son buenas entre Sí

On the social media stage, looking right seems the only thing that matters. Rather than using our emotions and intellect to do whats best, we focus on proving others wrong - those who think differently become our enemies. People are not using their voices to make things better. They express their opinions simply to hurt others; to silence ...

When nothing is certain anything is possible / Wenn nichts sicher ist, ist alles Möglich / Quando nada está certo, tudo é Possível / Cuando nada es seguro, todo es Posible

It is an interesting feeling, the moment before making a decision that will change your life forever. Standing on the edge of the unknown. Where nothing is certain. And nothing is guaranteed. When you have given up all control of your situation, allowing the forces unseen to move you through the process, not attaching yourself to ...

Voluntary Poverty / Freiwillige Armut / Pobreza Voluntária / Pobreza Voluntaria

Poverty is finding families these days through unemployment, bankruptcy and home foreclosure, whether they like it or not. And mostly, they do not like it. But in order to survive peak oil, I suggest that those who have not found poverty yet might want to seek it out for their own good. Prepare your household for a ...

What else might we Achieve / Was könnten wir sonst noch Erreichen / O que mais podemos Alcançar / Qué más podríamos Lograr

For a long time, civilization has beem headed in a direction that no one really want's to go. It is like we have been following a road with no exit ramp. Maybe we see a crossroads up ahead. It’s just over the hill, around the bend, past the woods. Cresting the hill, you see you ...

If I had Money / Wenn Ich Geld Hätte / Se eu tivesse Dinheiro / Si tuviera Dinero

The notion of dreaming and living without regard for financial reality can open the imagination to entire Worlds that money had rendered unrealistic. Money restricts options and makes some dreams impossible. But without money, there would be very few dreams whatsoever. While pursuing a life in which money does not matter may be exciting, it ...

If all the People / Wenn alle Leute / Se todas as Pessoas / Si toda la Gente

By 0 , Permalink

The World is full of terribly self-centred people, and I am afraid you are probably among them. Emotions such as Love, loyalty, and outrage, like a sense of fairness, have little or no place in most of today’s utility functions; a narrow selfishness is pervasive. Most of us claim to feel solidarity towards the thousands of ...

Love Never Dies / Liebe stirbt Nie / O amor nunca Morre / El amor nunca Muere

Love changes people but true Love does not change. The faith in Love acts supernatural. Impossible things are made possible. Love is magical. True Love never ends but becomes more deep and colorful with time. The best experience of life is the feeling of true Love.  True Love is magical. It acts like medication for your ...

Find death before death finds You / Finde den Tod, bevor der Tod dich Findet / Encontre a morte antes que a morte o Encontre / Encuentra la muerte antes de que la muerte te Encuentre

Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to 'die before you die' and find that there is no death. The only ‘real’ death is never knowing who you really are, never understanding your true ‘being’. When you have a true sense of self, this can never ...

Every parent’s worst Nightmare / Der schlimmste Albtraum aller Eltern / O pior pesadelo de todos os Pais / La peor pesadilla de cada Padre

No parent imagines losing sight of her kid - until it happens and you experience the terror of not being able to find your child, whether at an amusement park, a parade, in a store, or wherever else childre can get lost - which is anywhere, sometimes even right in your own neighborhood. Millions of children ...

Who speaks for Earth / Wer spricht für die Erde / Quem fala pela Terra / Quién habla por la Tierra

By 0 No tags Permalink

We are children equally of the Earth and the sky. In our tenure on this planet we have accumulated dangerous evolutionary baggage: propensities for aggression and ritual submission to leaders, hostility to outsiders. All of which puts our survival in some doubt. But we have also acquired compassion for others, Love for our children, a desire ...

It depends on You / Es hängt von Dir Ab / Depende de Você / Depende de Ti

By 0 , Permalink

We look to George Orwell as a kind of prophet of the ills of corporatism, socialism, authoritarianism, totalitarianism - any powerful -ism, essentially, in which we can find nasty, freedom-destroying implications. George Orwell makes his point by highlighting his 'warning' to what he saw as a fast corporatizing/socializing/authoriatarianizing/totalitarianizing World and makes the following ominous prediction: I think that ...

The Miracles in Life / Die Wunder im Leben / Os milagres na Vida / Los milagros en la Vida

You do not see the miracles hidden in nature because without a concerted effort you look at events superficially, on the surface level, without looking deeper. Nature hides the forces that lie beneath. You are living through the here and now, frame by frame, while miracles happen all around you. It is easier to see concealed ...

Invisible I Am / Unsichtbar bin Ich / Invisível eu Sou / Invisible Soy

Nobody knows you. Nobody cares about what you do. You feel unnoticed, unwanted, not making a single ripple, all while it seems everyone else is enjoying life and having fun without you. You look at them and they seem to have an easier time putting themselves out there. You feel that you are invisible to others and to ...

After Life / Nach dem Leben / Depois da Vida / Después de la Vida /

Most religions believe in some sort of continued existence after we die, whether it is in some peaceful paradise, a hellish land of punishment, or simply a continuation of the soul or essence in a new life. This continued existence is known as the afterlife. While some religions do not specify a single clear theory about ...

Today and Tomorrow / Heute und Morgen / Hoje e Amanhã / Hoy y Mañana

An early Buddhist teaching says: What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow. Our life is the creation of our mind. Karma means intended action, and is a dynamic concept. It is not fate or predestination, but a consequence of what has gone before. In ...

The point of life is simply here and Now / Der Sinn des Lebens ist einfach hier und Jetzt / O ponto da vida é simplesmente aqui e Agora / El punto de la vida es simplemente aquí y Ahora

The art of meditation is a way of getting in touch with reality. The reason for it is that most civilized people are out of touch with reality, because they confuse the World as it is with the World as they think about it and talk about it and describe it.For, on the one hand, ...

Dreams Coming True / Träume werden Wahr / Sonhos se tornando Realidade / Sueños se hacen Realidad

Dreams tell you what you really know about something, what you really feel. Dreams point you toward what you need for integration, expression, growth, and the health of your relationships to a person, place and thing. Dreams can help you to fine-tune your direction and show you your unfinished business. Dreams are meaning machines. And they never ...
