A Hallow - ing of those who have recently left us

Halloween, or "All Hallows Eve" and All Saints Day on November 1 is really a time to remember those who have gone before us. Today I am thankful and pay homage for the lives of some beautiful people in the public eye who have left us this year:



I am Thankful to Sir Edmund Hillary, for his courage to climb Mt Everest and his humanitarian work with the Sherpas.



I am thankful to Heath Ledger, who left us just as he was starting flight, for Brokeback… Continue

Hope it is ok to make my Blog political

I think that Barack Obama is the only Peace candidate. His position towards the war is the only exceptable one. I remember marching in protest to the Vietnam war, but am disappointed that young people haven't taken a more active role in this war in Iraq. From your Furry Freak Bro

A REGRA DE OURO ( Somos todos Um)

Bahai

Se seus olhos estiverem voltados para a justiça, escolha para seu semelhante aquilo que escolheria para si mesmo.



Budismo

Trate todas as criaturas assim como gostaria de ser tratado.



Confucionismo

O que não desejar que façam a você, não faça aos outros.



Cristianismo

Aquilo que deseja que os outros façam a você, faça também aos outros – eis a síntese da lei (de Deus)… Continue

Anatomia da rosa

Ninguém nunca se esquece da maior, rosa da rosa

Todavia permanece a cegueira hereditária.

Ainda há muita ferida de profundidade cálida

Que, por não ser de repente, vista é como irrisória.

Don't Laugh: Can Saudi Arabia Become the "Mecca" of Green?

Even the title sounds a bit out there. What, the Middle East, the world’s largest producer of oil, becoming a center for green technology, and renewable energy? Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? And yet, the sheer incongruity of it all may just be enough to make it work. In a world of increasing uncertainty, sometimes it is the unexpected that is to be expected.



Look at the world, and what do you see? A lot of good things, that’s for sure. Beauty surrounds us wherever we choose to look. But… Continue

My Peace

It is your peace

their peace, my peace

it is a cry, a shout

it is a whisper,

tangible

intangible

it is hoarse, cracked

like a mirror

it is a voice, it

is conscience

it is tears cascading

it is blood rehearsing

it is the tainted sword

maurauding, but



it is my peace

your peace our peace



it is bomb blasts taking

place again and again,

today eighteen in my country



it is the dove… Continue

Social Networking Buffoonery

So, you've had an epiphany or ten? Perhaps you sat with your yogi, your bible, your guru, your koran, your starseed, your torah, your zohar or chose to see a sign of some kind?



It doesn't matter how, but somehow you've figured out that you're part of the one. You may not even say it so profoundly yet but it matters not, because you're beginning to recognize that people are part of you, that they're the same as you, that they are your equals - and that the word "they" (referring to… Continue

לחן: נורית הירש



שם בבית הקטן

שושנים פורחות בגן

ובשובך הלבן -

איך בשמיים אני עף

ורק אלייך שב.

כשאני כאן לבד -

תני לי יד.

Looking Good for Peace

My brothers and sisters,

It is now a time for change, as it is looking as though Barack Obama will be the next president of the United States. The polls show that it is a 49.9 to 43.9% lead over John McCain, who intends to keep U.S. troops in Iraq, to continue fighting and to continue exacerbating the hate for the United States that is already felt throughout the world thanks to President George Bush. The war is expensive: our economy right now has been the worst since it has been since… Continue
