SWEET DIAMONDS: NEW TO OLD

Like a father

Like a father

I would want to be like a father. A father to everybody. I would listen to what worries them. I would listen to what troubles them. I would share their happiness. I would comfort them in their sadness. Many people feel unhappy. Many people feel confused. They do not know what to expect of life.
False and true heroes

False and true heroes

How can anyone be called a hero when he killed and maimed innocent people? How can anyone be called a hero when he killed and maimed defenceless children? How can anyone be called a hero when his weapon is terror and destruction? It is easy to be a false hero. But it takes part of your very self to be a true and lasting hero.
Trapped in a system

Trapped in a system

I am here in a country at war. In a war I do not want. I do not want to die. My enemy does not want to die either. Why are we enemies? Is it our choice? Or was it the choice made by others? Why do we feel hate? I do not like to feel hate. My enemy probably does not like it either.
You're OK

You’re OK

Sometimes it is hard to feel OK. People often feel sad or dissatisfied. Dissatisfied with themselves. Dissatisfied with the way their life is going. Many people blame themselves for not having the life they wanted. For not seeming to correspond with what others or society expect of them. But do the latter expect the right things? What are their expectations based on?
Promised Land

Promised Land

Many people are hoping to find the mythical Promised Land. We had been looking too. We had travelled the world and found there was none. At least not physically. Until we found it in our minds. Peace and human values can take Humanity to the Promised Land. If we do not change, the Land will always be a myth.
Sweet and tender

Sweet and tender

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. I waved my hand too and the child… He put his hand to his mouth and blew me a kiss.
Feelings

Feelings

Feelings are part of the language of our heart. They communicate the state of the heart. Feelings can be good and can be bad. Good feelings should be expressed more freely. Suppressing feelings often leads to frustration and even to bad health and violence. Bad feelings should be controlled more. Children should be taught how to control them.
Hate

Hate

Hate is like a burden on the heart. Hate prevents positive energy from flowing. Positive energy makes you feel alive. Hate is like a dam on your river. Your river of life and love. With hate, your river cannot flow freely. Freely to the ocean of peace. Hate is like a disease. It affects your entire body. It affects your mind. It affects all those around you.
Before I leave this world

Before I leave this world

Before I leave this world, I would like to try and make it better. Especially for the children. This world is too complicated. There is too much violence. There is too little warmth. Money seems to drive everything. Everything has its value expressed in money. Even love and friendship are often measured with money in mind. Is civilization really that civilized when thousands of people are killed or maimed just to have more power or more money?
My wish

My wish

Many people wish they were rich. Many people wish they were a star. Yet, the happiest moments in life have seldom anything to do with riches or stardom. Like being born in a caring family, even if of moderate means, where you feel welcome and appreciated. Like having friends that are true to you even if you have hardly any money. Friends that like your company just because of what you are and not because of what you have.
Blind and yet I can see

Blind and yet I can see

It does not matter to me what colour your skin or hair has. It can be any colour. I just don’t care. I am blind. What matters to me is the warmth of your heart. I can feel that more than anything else. How you look on the outside is of no importance. I will not judge you because of your looks.
Left and right

Left and right

Left and right were part of the same body. They grew up together and shared everything. They respected each other and life was easy. One day, left decided to be different. He wanted to have more than right. He wanted to have all the attention. He wanted to be rich and powerful. Right protested but did not take any action. He started to suffer and to shrink.
