In our forest

Why should I destroy what is growing under your feet?
Why should I cut the things around you,
fill the ground around you with concrete?
Build a fence around you and isolate you
so that you only grow by me?

We are trees in the forest,
our roots touch each other.
We live by the same soil.
Breathe the same air,
drink the rain together.

On your own you will die if I don’t water you.
With me, you will only grow by my light and water.
I love the passion for life.
I love the power, the surprise, the storm.
Who should light up the fire that I did not see coming?
Who but you, ignited by someone else?
Breathing the oxygen the sky gives to you.

Fly free like a bird in the sky, my heaven.
Dive to the sea bed and taste the sea.
Sing and dance, laugh and jump, cry and shout.
However you need it.
I am with you.
I am with you wherever you are.
I am with you whatever you do.
Fly my bird, fly.
Breathe life.

In our forest, there is space for everybody
For everybody who lives, who loves, who is.
I want to multiply peace, the sign of love, by ten,
giving the power of humanity to the earth,
forever.
Be my peace, my love,
I be your power and you be my earth,
I be your love and you be my life,
my eternity, my present, at the moment.

In times of silence, I can feel you.
I am often too loud, often too fast
Am the bow tensed with an arrow and fly with the arrow.
When I am with you, I am with me, my homeland, my harbour.

Blow all the borders with your roots growing.
Hold your treetop upwind and downwind, no matter the storm.
Give love and soil to grow at your roots.
Fly my bird, fly,
Breathe life, my heaven.
Let us multiply peace, the sign of love, by ten
and let us give the power of humanity to the earth,
forever.
When I am with you, I am with me, my homeland, my harbour.
My heart, my soul.
We will find each other again and again,
no matter which space,
no matter what time.

Briefly Hit By Happiness

Howdy folks,

Bring Back My Happiness

Do you know this feeling of a very comfortable fit between two persons on a special matter of common activity? Do you know the feeling when it is gone as fast as it came into your life? If you do, I think you understand this post’s title quite well…

A Little Happiness

But we never give up, you know, we are fighters, for happiness and peace, we shout through the silence and silence the screams calming down the worried and loving the lost ones. Let’s stand together in the desert where a single drop of tear can make a flower grow and swim through the ocean of tears we cry one day or another. A new day will come and the sun will shine on our way. To happiness.

May peace surround you and be happiness your friend celebrating life.

Chris

For you there’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do

Howdy folks,

these words are part of the beautiful song “Hey brother” by Avicii you can listen to playing the video below.

Do you know this feeling of deep love an care for the world? The feeling that you want to change something for the better, to make this world become a better place?

I mean sure, many of us are leading quite a good life nowadays but there is still starvation, disease and poverty around. There is also what I would like to call the “intellectual starvation”, the “over-consumption” disease and the “can’t pay my debt rates anymore” poverty in what we think of civilized society. So we can already think about a lot of things to do next door instead of hoping that it never happens to us or that we never become this way. We need to make a change my friends!

I am wondering what are the things I really need in my life. I will try to write down a list here beginning with the material things as they might come easier into my mind:

  • My notebook and smart phone (and the WWW) to work on my research, to collaborate and to communicate with my friends
  • A house and a bed are very nice things though other things might do depending on the climate
  • Clothes look good and might make me feel more comfortable but might not be necessary depending on the climate either
  • I am really a fan of my cosmetics and toothbrush and think most of them help me to lead a better life
  • Piano

    If I was not a singer, I surely would need some music instruments

  • Something to eat is necessary of course.
  • Because of the way we live, I need some money to satisfy my needs
  • Without friends, family and love, the world would be a much darker place
  • I need to sing because I love it (quite true for my other spare time activities)
  • Okay, let’s definitely add music and arts to this list!

I could have missed something here but I think you might already grasp my point by this rather short list compared to the amount of things one might possess. I already think that I own quite a lot of things I hardly need and might change this fact. But I guess thinking carefully about really needing it before buying something (a proactive strategy) is needed much more. I will keep that in mind!

I hope you will find your way to make our world become a better place. What do you think of? What do you do to make a change?

May peace surround you and be happiness your friend,

Chris

P.S.: As I never experienced war, peace is quite natural to me but I guess I should add it to my list. Peace!

Stay Out Of Syria – U.S. Marine Speaks Out

Howdy folks,

my good friend RonMamita did some great research I want to share with you.

U.S. Marine Speaks Out.

He is really working on his peace project which I appreciate very much.

May peace surround you,
