Faith

MUST NOT LOSE FAITH

Paris the 13th

Tears, my tears fall to wine
As I can not comprehend this horrendous crime
Men filled with such spiteful hate
Islamic teachings seal their fate
Kill and slaughter love and smiles
How I pray tell does this bring about
Any compassion of heart, have they no guile?

I have walked along those Parisian streets
Filled with history and diversity, such a feat
Hand in hand, people from so many lands
Dressed in darkness, blacks and grays
The massacre dancing in premonitions sway
Crusaders never win, for love will take its stand

Hundreds taken from Jesus hands
For nothing more than celebrating their great lands
Food and drink and lovers smiles
Stolen this night by hateful bile
We shall rise again, defend and stand

Our blood may flow in the river seine
However in the end its you, who is insane
We shall defend our liberty
Even if we hang evil from the tree

Père Lachaise has brought me tears
Such history over all the years
Yet here I am faced to visit once again

Paying respect to those dying in vain
My heart is fraught, with you till eternity

Liberté, égalité, fraternité

Notes: Pere Lachaise is a famous cemetery in Paris
Liberté, égalité, fraternité is the motto of France

Thoughts for today, #286 .… “Where does it hurt? Everywhere …. “

EVERYWHERE

“Later that night
I held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt?

It answered
everywhere
everywhere
everywhere.”

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

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.

Something to think about …. “Take a Good Look in the Mirror”!!

TAKE A GOOD LOOK 

“Everyone is worried about stopping terrorism.

Well, there’s a really easy way: Stop participating in it.”

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 …

IOTD …. Images of the day, #388 …. “The Love of Reading”!!

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.”

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

You can find Michelle here: http://mchelsmusings.wordpress.com/

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

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. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

HOPEFUL

Hopeful, hopeful,
That’s the feeling I get when I hear her name.
Not knowing when;
Or why she has chosen me.
But knowing in my heart that I will never let her down.
Condescending;
Of all these ideas I have of her.
My walk with her has been one I’ll never forget;
I will not
Loose her.
In all the chaos in this world,
She is the one I seek  for guidance
Please, never let me go.
Forever with her,
I am,
Hopeful!

The last few days have been harrowing and mind-boggling. The security of what we know as our life, our world and our safety has been shaken to the core.

We frequently think:

“It won’t happen to me, it won’t happen here, it won’t happen to us.”

The only thing that we know for sure is that life, as we know it, can change in a flash.

Here’s a balm, a beautiful song to transport us to a warm, beautiful place …. if only for a moment.

PARIS ATTACKS … LIGHTS OUT

Pianist plays moving rendition of ‘Imagine‘ outside attack site

As support pours in from around the world and the city mourns in the wake of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris, a pianist offered his own touching contribution.

On Saturday morning, November 14, pianist Davide Martello rode up on a bike with a portable piano and played John Lennon’s “Imagine” in an area near the Bataclan concert hall, where more than 100 people were killed as part of a coordinated attack at multiple sites.

In January 2015, the German musician played for two hours in the Place de la Republique in Paris as a healing gesture for the city after the deadly attacks on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket. Martello also played through the night in Turkey’s Taksim Square in 2013 amidst widespread protests and turmoil in the country.
