Why Fight / Warum Kämpfen / Por que Lutar / Por qué Pelear

Most modern wars are fought over political disagreements, which are pretty shallow, ideological battles. What kind of government are we going to have? Capitalism called communism, or communism called capitalism, or what have you?Those wars are fought out of fear. So we’ll say, 'All right, we’re going to blow those bastards to pieces. We’re afraid ...

Why you are the way you Are / Warum Du bist so wie Du Bist / Por que você é do jeito que É / Por qué eres como Eres

While knowing who you are is important, knowing why you are the way you are can provide a higher level of understanding about yourself and deserve further exploration. You act and behave in ways that may seem irrational and inexplicable, even to yourself. Personal philosophy is a personal experience, a way of life. It is an overall ...

Through Dark and Light / Durch Dunkel und Licht / Através da escuridão e da Luz / A través de la oscuridad y la Luz

Places left Behind / Zurückgelassene Orte / Lugares deixados para Trás / Lugares dejados Atrás

Isolation or the lack of Human interference. Whatever had been the reason, places left behind are a poet’s definition of solitude. The fact that beauty can be found in the most arbitrary places is why mother nature holds supreme, formidable power over everything. There are places in this World that never stop changing, and then there ...

Take nature as a Teacher / Nimm die Natur als Lehrer / Tome a natureza como Mestre / Toma la naturaleza como Maestra

Seeing nature as a teacher is an element of ancient wisdom. Advice from nature is about listening to nature.

Observing nature is always an awe-inspiring, spiritual experience ...

Some will recall comic Rodney Dangerfield's catch phrase. Others may remember Aretha Franklin’s iconic spelling. When you respect someone, it is a verb. When you get respect, it is a noun. Either way, it has positive connotations. If I respect you, it does not necessarily or obligatory follow that you will respect me. Many cultures show respect for elders; it ...

Toxic people defy logic. Some are blissfully unaware of the negative impact that they have on those around them, and others seem to derive satisfaction from creating chaos and pushing other people’s buttons. Either way, they create unnecessary complexity, strife, and worst of all stress. Whether it is negativity, cruelty, the victim syndrome or just plain ...
