Efforts for our world.

The plain fact is that the planet does not need more “successful” people.
But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every shape and form.
It needs people who live well in their places.
It needs people of moral courage willing to join the effort to make the world habitable and humane.
And these needs have little to do with success as our culture has defined it.

Grace and beauty

Grace and beauty I search,
Grace and beauty I find.
When I open my eyes in wonder,
When I open my heart with love.
I can feel the tingling on my skin,
I can feel the prickling in my tummy.
When I tell you my stories,
and you hear them resonate with yours.

Mapping out our lives

There we are,

At the top of the hill.

Looking down at all the fields of opportunities.

Trying to figure out which one is ours.

Knowing that they’re all just a macrocosm of ourselves,

And each one of them as important as the other.

Still having to decide which valley we are heading for.

There is a space where we can connect,

Despite of where are, to where ever we want to.

And it is as real, as every thought you might have.

Looking from this place into the world,

It is not the question of where we are going,

but how we are going.

Which shouldn’t keep us from going,

Where our heart leads us to,

Our mind gives us the possibilities to imagine,

And our will shall move us to.

Because there is a path, which is for us,

Though it might be hidden and go in circles,

It will be ours,

And allways ours.

As long as we tread a path.
