SWEET DIAMONDS: NEW TO OLD

Development aid

Development aid

Most rich countries spend less than 0.7 percent of their income on development aid. Many of them spend much more money on weapons and on destruction. Is it because it is more directly profitable? If you had a rich neighbour and you were poor and had nothing, would you not be desperate?
Complexes

Complexes

Many people are shy and have come to feel inferior. They forget that nobody is perfect. Some people are simply better at hiding imperfections. Some people simply do not bother about them.
Relationships

Relationships

The best relationships are those where there is trust and trustworthiness. Trust gives you the feeling that the other person respects you and that he will treat you well. Trustworthiness signals you will indeed respect the other person and that you will not harm him.
Softness

Softness

In today’s hard world it is easy to be considered too soft. As if being soft were a defect. As if being soft were negative. Why is softness seen as weakness? Peace is soft, but is it weakness? Being hard seems to be promoted in many ways from a tender age on.
The end or the beginning

The end or the beginning

The end of abusing Nature. The start of respecting Nature. In a sustainable partnership. The end of ever more. The start of more with less. More satisfaction and less consumption. The end of destructive greed. The start of constructive solidarity. No-one wherever is left out in the cold.
Humanity

Humanity

We would rather be humanity than money. We would rather be human than selfish. We would rather live in a house than in a castle. We would rather have friends than be rich and alone. We would rather be a dolphin than a vulture. We would rather be giving than stealing. We would rather be social than greedy. We would rather be sharing than taking.
Customer care

Customer care

The most important customers in your life are your family and friends. They give you a lot without asking anything. They give you love and friendship. That is for free. It is the most important product around. Love is so precious. Yet true love cannot be bought.
Solidarity

Solidarity

Today, many of our leaders are drowning in a mass of problems. The world has become incredibly complicated. Most of the problems are man-made though. A lot of time, money and energy go into problem-solving. The very problem is most of our leaders do not see the forest for the trees anymore.
Money

Money

Money makes the world go round. The world has made many rounds already but money cannot solve all problems. Money is not always spent wisely. The imbalance between rich and poor is large. Money does not always make happy. Money can be a sickening obsession. Money can be a blinding addiction.
Smiles

Smiles

A smile can be disarming and make our hearts melt away. Think of the impact of the first smiles of a baby or the smiles of a child. Children are spontaneous and not – normally – burdened yet by problems or worries. Why make our lives so complicated?
The Sun and the Moon

The Sun and the Moon

The Sun warms the Moon. Without it, the Moon would be nothing. Without it, the Moon would not shine. The Sun is life. The Sun gives life to Nature. The Sun gives life to all. Without it, nothing would exist. The Sun is life. Life is the Sun. The Sun is precious. Life is precious.
Respect

Respect

Respect starts by respecting yourself. Respect for other people means accepting their differences. We would not want everyone to be the same. Respect is accepting that not everything nor everyone is perfect.
