farewell to arms

Farewell to Arms



In this our life on earth

Another dawn we face

Is this the moment of truth

For the whole human race

Is that the last man down

Is that the last life laid to waste

Can we find in our hearts

Each and every dream we’ve misplaced

Before heaven cries tears

On the mountain we climb



Farewell to arms

Rest in peace

May the rain of freedom be released

Farewell to arms

We just can’t walk away

We’re… Continue

When the human being will wake up to see the reality?

Only when the last tree is cut, the last river is polluted, the last fish is catched and no bird is flying any more in our blue sky- only then the creature, so called human being, will recognize that you can not eat money

the struggle of east india or the modern economic development (found at Gandhi Foundation webside)

The Situation In East India – by Felix Padel



The situation here in East India is both complex to understand and very simple. As an anthropologist knowing & living in this area for 30 years, I’d like to try and explain the outline of what is happening so more people understand.

People outside India as well as inside it are becoming aware that there are thousands of local movements going on here of people trying to save their land from being invaded and taken over by big… Continue

Often we seek enlightenment, guidance and solace but they are what a person have tolerated in his life.

War is easy to start, hard to end and impossible to forget

“Knowledge” exists, “Wisdom” is discovered.

An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.

say no to violence and non-respect on the issue of international women's day

SAY NO TO VIOLENCE AND NON-RESPECT

Special times call for special action. If we have the possibility to spread humanity to the world, to the politicians who have the power then let’s use our strong voice of every human activist to change something. Education in respect for every life, nature, religion is the basic for non-violence and peace. If we respect others and ourselves then we cannot harm anybody. Respect is love. If we respect the opposite we cannot slap him/her. If we respect the… Continue

the true meaning of life

The true meaning of life
We are visitors on this planet,
We are here for ninety
Or hundred years
At the very most.
During that period,
We must try to do something good,
Something useful,
With our lives.
If you contribute to other people’s happiness,
You will find the true goal,
The true meaning of life.
14th dalai lama

some quotations to think about

Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean....



Joyfulness keeps the heart and face young. A good laugh makesus better friends with ourselves and everybody around us



One must never lose time in vainly regretting the past or in complaining against the changes which cause us discomfort, for change is the essence of life



In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high.



Practice isn't the thing… Continue

thoughts are free (german folk song translated)

The thoughts are free



1) The thoughts are free.

Who can guess them?

They passing by like nightly shadows,

Nobody can know them

No hunter can shoot them with powder and lead

The thoughts are free.



2) I think what I want

And what makes me happy,

But at first in silence and nobody is disturbing.

My wishes and dreams nobody can forbid

But the thoughts are free.



3) And if somebody lock me up in a dark dungeon,

all… Continue

someday

Someday, when we are wiser

when the worlds older

when we have learned

I pray someday we may yet

Live to live and let live

Someday, life will be fairer

need will be rarer

And greed will not pay

Godspeed, this bright millennia

on its way, let it come someday

Someday our fight will be won, and

we’ll stand in the sun, in

that bright afternoon

'Till then, on days when the sun

is gone, we'll hang on

if we wish upon the… Continue

Peace in our time

The global environment can survive only if we learn to live in peace and harmony with our fellow human beings. At the same time, as Dr. Jane Goodall says, "To achieve global peace, we must not only stop fighting each other but also stop destroying the natural world.".



Peace In Our Time

Thank you for the gift

The freedom to wonder

In search of the light

Are we gonna let it shine

Forgiveness is the key

The perfect emotion

Will you show us the… Continue

WE ARE THE WORLD

WE ARE THE WORLD



There comes a time

When we head a certain call

When the world must come together as one

There are people dying

And it's time to lend a hand to life

The greatest gift of all



We can't go on

Pretneding day by day

That someone, somewhere will soon make a change

We are all a part of

God's great big family

And the truth, you know love is all we need



We are the world

We are the children

We are… Continue

And stop destroying our land and sea

We have to save in our world of phantasie

A better place for you and me

I see a world of peace and harmony

Oh let us care for everything that has to grow

There is a… Continue
