PEACE: A Rose With Thorns

Posted on January 23, 2009 at 9:30pm 0 Comments

My vision of peace on earth is simply this: diverse people with strong and contrary philosophical opinions resisting the urge to force them on one another.

I do not see all of humanity hugging and singing peace songs together in perfect agreement. It is unrealistic and naive. Nature itself teaches us to accept that life is a perfect blend of joy and pain. There's a sharp ugly thorn on a beautiful fragrant rose. Poison ivy grows next to…

It's more powerful to let faith for change radiate from us than concentrating on who's guilty, in our communication, and in wearing the weight of injustice on our countenances. And nothing validates "faith for change" more than a genuine smile that comes up from the heart and out through the eyes.

Injustice is everywhere. On every continent. In every country and city. Everyday, innocent die and guilty go free.

In 2007 in America, 16,929 people were murdered and 90,427…

Dear new friends for peace.

I love being part of this amazing international community.

Sadly, my country has a bad name around the world but a great change is coming and the people inside have displayed their true heart for peace, acceptance and compassion in our last presidential election. Just a few decades ago Afro-Americans were deprived of privileges that white people had. TODAY an Afro-American has been elected as our president. CHANGE IS POSSIBLE!

This video BLOG was shot mostly in NYC (Astoria, Queens). A place on earth where members from all races, colors & creeds have managed to live together in beautiful peace. I lived there for 8 years and while there learned how UNIMPORTANT it is to agree with those whose beliefs are different. The need to agree is selfish and narrow minded. Accepting those with opposing beliefs is the sign that what we believe is healthy.

I started this song, "ON OUR WAY BACK HOME" in… Continue

Lyrics to: "ON OUR WAY BACK HOME" soundtrack to: "SMILE IF YOU LOVE PEACE"

On Our Way Back Home

I know I can't see how you see, I know you can't see how I see,
We really don't need to agree, at all.
We're both in separate grocery lines, you're in your world, I'm in mine,
Living our own dreams, great or small.. We're on our way back home.

Some to cities, some to fields, some outspoken, some concealed,
Some religion, some no god to call.
Some to privilege, some to lack, some the future, some the past,
Always moving toward a common goal.. We're on our way back home.

To be understood means understand, we're all the same, all just man,
Living, working, trying not to fall.
So few of us are truly mad, and most of us, if had the chance,
Would choose a kinder life, after all.. We're on our way back home.

Crowded streets and country roads, shouldering our private loads,
Watching hopes and dreams, rise and fall.
We need to take less than we give, be forgiven and forgive,
Celebrate our differences, and love and live and just let live.. We're on our way back home.

Dear ONE,
it's about a year ago, that i saw a postcard with this photo on it in the Cologne Fair Trade Shop. Immediately i thought of you, bought the card and wanted to scan it and send it to you, because you brought lots and lots of big SMILES to iPeace. After your smile evoking profile picture and your faszinating video, the "Valitdation" viedeo followed and Stephanie from Italy founded the group "10.000 stories with a smile".

YES: WE ARE on OUR way BACK HOME. We can accompany each other for a while, give inspiration, share our treasures and simply BE together. This wonderful big café iPeace will vanish within a few hours, but all the seeds we have planted here will remain and lots of them already brought fruits.

Thank you so much for your beautiful song (and telling the story behind). I have had it for a long time on the first place of the playing list on my page and i am very glad i can still listen to it on youtube or send it to friends. Thank yOu for BEING and SHARING yOur LOVE, WISDOM and INSPIRATION here with us!
May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you and the pure light within you guide your way on!

Love is always present, in the world, in nature, in us. What changes is our realisation of it.
Sending you a hearty smile from nature, dear Smile.
love without end, Sandavala
