No Room for Hate.

There is no room within my heart
for revenge, fire or hate
there is no room within my mind
for any thoughts like these.

I cannot find the words to say
just how it is I feel
but I know from deepest hurt
I must forgiveness find.

The hurt that’s been done to us
cuts sore like a knife,
but we must not, repay in kind
what has been done to us.

Instead we must try and find
the way that is so hard,
and reach out our loving hands
to find some friendship now.

There can be no more healing thing
than opening wide our eyes
and seeing that most other folk
are really just like us.

This first poem was written in memory of all those that died in 7/7 but equally applies to those who lost loved ones in other tragedies....

Des astronomes ont saisi pour la première fois le spectacle d'un jet de particules se dégageant d'un trou noir géant et frappant une galaxie voisine sur sa trajectoire, un phénomène susceptible d'endommager gravement l'atmosphère des planètes de la galaxie touchée.

"Nous avons déjà observé des jets produits par les trous noirs, mais c'est la première fois que nous en voyons un frapper une autre galaxie de cette manière", souligne dans un communiqué de la Nasa Dan Evans, chercheur au Centre d'astrophysique Harvard-Smithsonian à Cambridge, qui a dirigé l'étude.

"Ce jet pourrait causer toutes sortes de problèmes à la plus petite galaxie qu'il heurte", juge-t-il.
Ces jets émanant des trous noirs produisent des niveaux élevés de radiation, qui, combinés à la vitesse des particules du jet -- proche de la vitesse de la lumière -- sont susceptibles d'endommager sévèrement l'atmosphère des planètes se trouvant sur le chemin du jet, par exemple en détruisant des couches d'ozone protectrices, explique la Nasa.Le phénomène a été observé dans le système 3C321, qui contient deux galaxies en orbite autour de l'autre.

L'impact du jet de particules sur la galaxie voisine risque d'être d'autant plus substantiel que les deux galaxies en question sont très proches, éloignées de 20.000 années lumière seulement, soit la même distance qui sépare la Terre de la Voie Lactée, note la Nasa.

THE PEACE I OWN WITHIN by Raven Cohan Nov. 30, ‘08

It occurred to me within this year that
I can forgive Hitler.
I Can Forgive Terrorists World Wide.
I can let go of my shock that the world is upside down sometimes.
I (and Who Else?) can let go of Utopian Dreams for 100% peace or NOTHING...
I can... TODAY... for give and let go and put my creative spirit
(connected to
The Oneness...)
in GEAR .
I can make a positive response that doesn't give up on humanity.

I can find a big space in my heart, with no expectations,
And I can keep loving the Oneness (that is all of us).
The lost and found of Souls can't be sorted out by ME!!!
I just need, at the instant of hearing any news that has been labeled, "BAD"
To return my programming back to the PEACE I OWN WITHIN...

I'm not sure I belong here:-
My thoughts ... inexpressible.
My feelings ... Unprintable.

Yes this is terrible, but we can´t forguet we´ve (all our socyeties) been feeding this monster during a long time. Nobody in particular is the responsible, but always ignore the signs, the mostly of us just watch the tv. and deplore it... I tbhink maybe this is just the beggining

Caem bombas que matam inocentes
chafurdam as palavras da mentira
há homens que riem indiferentes
pensando que a vida deles ninguém tira

Eu sou solidário com todos os inocentes.

Why indeed? Perhaps it is because some of us (no longer?) humans just want to turn back time or want to live in a fantasy parallel universe. Shame on them and their cohort!
