Thoughts for today, #158: “Powerful people don’t want Peace”!!

~~May 14, 2015~~ 

I was born and raised Catholic. I was a practicing, staunch believer. Not anymore. Slowly and surely I drifted away for a myriad of reasons.

The statements, beliefs and ideas of previous popes didn’t jive with mine. I’m still leery of the people of the cloth.

However, this Pope seems to have his feet firmly planted on earth and, in spite of his spiritual faith, seems to know the plight of the people.

I’m still watching and listening to what he says.

The “industry of death” exists in the world as many people in power live off war, Pope Francis told Italian schoolkids in the Vatican on Monday, May 11, 2015.

“Many powerful people don’t want peace because they live off war,” the Pontiff said as he met with pupils from Rome’s primary schools in the Nervi Audience Hall.

Talking to children during the audience organized by the Peace Factory Foundation, he explained that every war has the arms industry behind it.

“This is serious. Some powerful people make their living with the production of arms and sell them to one country for them to use against another country,” the Pope was cited by AGI news agency as saying.

The head of the Catholic Church labeled the arms trade “the industry of death, the greed that harms us all, the desire to have more money.”

“The economic system orbits around money and not men, women,” he told 7,000 kids present at the audience.

Despite the fact that wars “lose lives, health, education,” they are being waged to defend money and make even more profit, the Pope said.

Thoughts for today, #157: “Nothing lasts forever”!!


GoodNews

~~May 12, 2015~~ 

“Some things don’t last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down on the corners and peering in close, hoping you still recognize the person you see there.”
~Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby~

“the truth about forever is that it is happening right now”
~Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever~

“Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you – sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever.”
~Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium~

~~February 17, 2015~~ 

“The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.”

~~Arthur Schopenhauer~~

The Basis of Morality

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!”
