Thanks Nidal! Marhaba! I will look for the book and as soon as i have it, I comment it to you. Yes, the more we can learn about this process from hate to love and from anger to peace, the more, I think, we will be of service to us and the world. Besos
Hi NIdal. Thank you for your words in the Gandhi group! I really would love to read the book you recommend me . Can you give me the author and name again, and I may try to find it here, or what we can do? I send you my love
Thank you for your very moving comment.
To know that Peace is more powerful than Violence;
that Love is more powerful than Resentment;
that Forgiveness is more powerful than Bitterness;
that Openness is more powerful than Closedness;
that "even if [they] put us behind bars we still lions"...
THAT is our Strength.
I have asked to be your friend, but have been told that I've already exceeded the maximum of 50 friends requests on Ning. I don't want to retract any of those requests, because I am trying to use them to mobilise support for the World March.
However, if YOU request my friendship, this would be "permitted"... and I would be honoured to accept.
Hi Nidal, I am so glad I found you here! Well... what can I tell you... I am delighted to hear a little more of your story... about you, your father, your sister...it makes me understand better the truth about "love your enemies". When you tell the story of the bird and the guard, I can see how we all are, deep inside, connected with Love. And how you father love for the bird... without any expectation, brought someone ... 'the enemy'... to touch his own capacity of love. Well, all this touches my heart and help me understand a little more...Thanks Nidall. Send you my love
Your story about your father's loving pacifism is inspirational in the face of institutionally mobilised hate. I encourage you to tell more of your father, family and life stories.
Most of us don't realise the institutional roles we play and therefore keep the hate or fear machines moving. Institutions divide, segregate and isolate all parties. As judges, jailers, consumers, workers and managers, earning and spending in this orchestrated game, we are aware of our own personal and family pains and joys but not of the fear game we are institutionally encouraged to play. work-at and appease with consumer spending on goods and services.
We spend to ease our pain but only end up more isolated in spending precious resources that could have brought us together with our fellow humans. Our greatest opportunities are to live in solidarity with each other, by living simply, considering all of humanity in our spending and encouraging dialogue with everyone including those who might injure us. As we live in solidarity, we as well lay foundations for our economic collaboration and hence the ability to recapture the collective we for everyone's participation and fulfillment.
Your father could see through isolating games and laid such a clear loving example of how to live; that we are all part of the solution everywhere.
Yes Nidal, I am delighted to be your friend! I would like so much one day to hear more about those times under ocupation, you being a kid... and the transformation of the heart to love. Well, I really think that life has a way to transforms our hearts to love... And Yes...the food is delicious!!! I speak a little of Arabic and I enjoy it so much! besos
Hi Nidal! I just want to say hello! I was born in Mexico,and both my parents were from Lebanon. Your story touches me... I know a little bit about the passion, the hate, the love, the courage... all together in every person from that part of the world, and all of us who have their blood. It touches my heart and make me smile. Send you lots of love.
