TIME TO WAKE UP

Solutions To Terrorism: It’s Time To Wake Up

The world was shocked when Paris was attacked by extremist on the evening of November 13  and the attacks in Beirut the day before.  Humanity weeps for those we have lost in these tragic events, but it we need to look at why this keeps happening.

Russell Brand has published a video of what he thinks we need to do to end terrorism.

His ideas are great.

WeOneHand

We must come to the understanding that we are all connected and that we share this planet with each other.

Violence is never the solution to violence, that will only fuel the flames.

If we show nothing but love to each other that will take the power away from the brutality that humans are capable of.

It is time for us to rid ourselves of these wars and unite as one on this planet.  When the history of man has reached its closure will it be ridden with acts of hatred .… or will it be the story of a logical and understanding species?

We decide.

TIME-LAPSE DRAWING

I found out about this awesome talented painter last night. I was traversing through the highways of social media and there is was. This awesome video.

There’s not much information about the artist except the link to her social media.

I think that this is so perfect to address the current world issues, the wars, the conflicts, the killings, the terror. World Peace Day was “celebrated” a few days ago.

We all crave peace.

Let’s at least try.

Enjoy!

Emerson student Jody Steel draws on thigh, gains fame

By Christopher Muther GLOBE STAFF

Students, ignore everything your parents, teachers, and professors have told you and listen carefully: Doodling in class can make you a star.

At least, that is what it has done for Emerson student Jody Steel, whose remarkable drawings, usually on her right thigh, have won her buzz, hundreds of thousands of views online, and job offers.

Since starting at Emerson College in 2011, the Florida native has been using her leg as a canvas on which to produce portraits of Bryan Cranston as Walter White in “Breaking Bad,” Radiohead singer Thom Yorke, and “Don Jon” actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Celebrity crushes, favorite television shows, and an occasional cat have found their way onto her leg as she carefully draws with a Pilot Precise V5 pen during class lectures.

The delicate shadings of her work bring to mind a series of pop-culture chiaroscuro sketches. They are documented on her iPhone and then lost to the ages with the help of soap and water.

“Completely unexpected,” Steel said of the attention. “Obviously you always hope your art will be seen, but I wasn’t expecting it to go so big and international.”

As her doodled masterpieces went viral, they became international curiosities. The story was picked up by websites in France and Britain and in newspapers across Europe. Now a website in Brazil is touting her talents. She has posted many of these stories to her Facebook fan page.

~LYRICS~

(Instrumental Intro featuring Lindsey Stirling)

(Fraser)
There’s no time for us.
There’s no place for us.
What is this thing that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us?

(Remi)
Who wants to live forever?
Who wants to live forever? Oh,

(Clifton)
There’s no chance for us.
It’s all decided for us.
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us.

(Victor)
Who wants to live forever?
Who dares to love forever?
Oooh, Ahh,

(Clifton)
Who dares to live forever? Woah,
When love must die.

(Instrumental break featuring Lindsey Stirling)

(Fraser/Remi)
But touch my tears with your lips
Touch my world with your fingertips

(All)
And we can have forever,
And we can love forever.
(Victor)
Forever is our today.

(All)
Who wants to live forever?
Who wants to live forever?
Forever is ours,

(Fraser)
Who wants forever anyway?

(Instrumental close featuring Lindsey Stirling)

Who doesn’t love a good vampire scene set in a haunted castle?

In The Tenors’ video for their cover of Queen’s “Who Wants To Live Forever,” from their latest album Under One Sky, the quartet are vampires lamenting their immortality. The clip also features violinist Lindsey Stirling who contributed to the song.

Directed by Matěj Pichler, the video was shot in a historic castle in Prague, which locals have rumored is haunted by a previous family who inhabited the space 300 years ago.

Thoughts for today, #288 .… “We Come in MANY Colors”!!

PUERTO RICANS 

“Our skins are different.

We have many colors.

We are all Puerto Rican (Borinqueños).

(translated)

HortyRex©

GoldSwirl

Puerto Ricans (Spanish: Puertorriqueños; Taíno: boricua) are the inhabitants or citizens of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is a multi-ethnic nation, home to people of different ethnic and national backgrounds. As a result, some Puerto Ricans do not treat their nationality as an ethnicity but as a citizenship with various ethnicities and national origins comprising the “Puerto Rican people“.

Despite its multi-ethnic composition, the culture held in common by most Puerto Ricans is referred to as mainstream Puerto Rican culture, a Western culture largely derived from the traditions of Western European migrants, beginning with the early Spanish settlers, along with other Europeans arriving later such as the Corsicans, Irish, Germans and French, along with a strong West African culture which has been influential.

Puerto Ricans commonly refer to themselves as boricuas. “The majority of Puerto Ricans regard themselves as being of mixed Spanish-European descent. Recent DNA sample studies have concluded that the three largest components of the Puerto Rican genetic profile are in fact indigenous Taíno, European, and African”.

~Hang With Friends~

And it is beautiful, too, indeed, I think some of Seth Andrews’ best work. Interesting point: rather than Seth’s dulcet baritone doing the narration, this piece presses Nathan Phelps’ deep bass intonation into service, bringing a different flavor to it, as well as a healthy dose of irony.

These are trying times.

From past history and events to present times.

It doesn’t matter where you look.

It doesn’t matter what beliefs you hold dear or follow.

It doesn’t matter who you follow.

Groups, religions, cultures, societies, races, nations.

What has changed?

What have we learned?

It’s all a mentality of “them versus us”?

Take a look.

Resonating Thoughts #2 …. “Declare PEACE: Someone Has to Do It”!!


DeclarePeace

~~November 16, 2015~~ 

SOMEONE HAS TO DO IT

Declare World Peace

One syllable, five letters, containing so much grace.
You’d think each single soul would find it easy to embrace.
Whispered in the darkness by those who live in fear.
Shouted from the mountaintops for everyone to hear.

Elusive as the wind that blows it often slips away.
Leaving in its shadow, pain and sorrow in the fray.
Let us join together as we call for war to cease.
Let us all agree to all declare we want world peace.

In every corner of the world in every language known.
Speak the words of peace in every country, every zone.
Add your voice until we drown the noise of hate and war.
Until the sound of peace becomes a loud and thunderous roar.

Resonating Thoughts #1 …. “Stir and Restrain”!!


CombatPeace

~~November 16, 2015~~ 

RESONATING THOUGHTS 

I frequently look, scroll and find many thoughts through my Facebook Timeline, my Tweeter and Instagram feeds which resonate with my innermost beliefs and values.

This shows me that there are others who have gone through situations I’ve gone through, who have experienced the world as I have.

It may be many centuries prior to my time or if maybe during this current time on Earth.

When I read these, many time I find that what happened long time ago, still applies to today.

Then I ask myself: What did we learn?

Sometimes it seems we didn’t.

Definition of “resonating”:

Evoke a feeling of shared emotion or belief ….

I would like to share some of these with you.

André Paul Guillaume Gide (22 November 1869 – 19 February 1951) was a French author and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1947 “for his comprehensive and artistically significant writings, in which human problems and conditions have been presented with a fearless love of truth and keen psychological insight”.

Gide’s career ranged from its beginnings in the symbolist movement, to the advent of anticolonialism between the two World Wars.

It so easy to look at others and criticize.

It’s also very easy to point fingers and find fault in others.

A most difficult task is to take a good look in the mirror and see where one may be at fault or how one could be the cause of events that reverberate in so many spheres.

There’s a saying …

“If your house is made of glass don’t throw stones on others”.

Something to think about …

THE LOVE OF READING

“I have sometimes dreamt … that when the Day of Judgment dawns and the great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards — their crowns, their laurels, their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble — the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say, not without a certain envy when He sees us coming with our books under our arms:

“Look, these need no reward.

We have nothing to give them here.

They have loved reading.”

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay.
