Stone diamonds often hide stories about exploitation, child labour, swindle and the like.
They are reputed to last forever.
Who gave them that reputation?
People obsessed with material possessions and often lacking in priceless humanity.
No more hidden financial deals.
No more harmful currency manipulations.
No more criminal money.
The etico is to become the new universal currency.
It represents the highest ethical standards.
It is not linked to any country or economic powerhouse.
It is the currency of Peace.
Excessive materialism is bringing our world and Earth to the brink of collapse. We need a new kind of leaders and institutions urgently. Human beings do need material things to organize their lives. But do they really need all that much? Do they really need to buy new things only to buy yet other new things shortly after?
Consumers are complaining about rising prices. Some foodstuffs cost ever more. Fuel prices are soaring. Health care becomes more expensive… Many producers are also complaining. Often they get minimum prices for their products or raw materials. Especially in less developed countries. Why are prices going up? Why are producers paid little for their produce? Who is behind this unfair economic system?
Some people like to wear jewels. Gold, silver, diamonds, precious stones…
Some have a whole collection of them.
There is another type of jewels though.
Jewels you collect throughout your life.
Jewels made of pure humanity.
They are kept in a special box.
An invisible box inside your heart.
The more jewels you collect the more precious you are.
This evening I was waiting at the traffic lights. The sunset was extremely colourful and nice. A car stopped next to me to wait too. In the backseat of the car there was a child, about 2 years old with blond curly hair. I smiled at the child and he smiled back. Spontaneously a broad happy smile appeared. I smiled again and he started to wave his hand.
He smiled and waved his hand. Spontaneously and quite long.
