Love God,

And,

Love man,

With equal ferocity,

For,

In man,

Is God.

Equal

You and I,

We,

Are,

All,

Equal.

From the nose that breathes,

To the brain that thinks,

We are all equal.

Well…it’s one of those days when I’ve been taken back to thoughts I had as a young girl. My best friend happened to be from a different part of the world, a different religion. And , I could not allow myself to believe that she- the most amazing person I had met, would not be with me on the other side, but, would be damned to eternal suffering.

We,

take different routes,

to the same destination,

Searching,

For home.

Our bodies are made up of 70% water. That’s the one thing that always facinates me. Regardless of what we think we are…There’s a lot of water in us. No matter where we live, there’s a hell of water in us.

You and I,

We,

Are,

All,

Equal.

From the nose that breathes,

To the brain that thinks,

We are all equal.

Breathe in, 

Breathe out,

There’s life, 

Running inside those veins. 


Breathe in,

Breathe out,

There’s life, 

Pulsating again and again.


Breathe in, 

Breathe out,

There’s life, 

In the expansion of the lungs. 


Breathe in, 

Breathe out,

There’s life.

So tell me,

Beautiful child,

what is there to lose,

under this beautiful starry sky,

where you can almost reach out and touch,

the glitter splayed against the dark canvas?

Song: So much to me by FKJ

Peace 

Peace begins with your thoughts, words and actions…

You cannot go on an excursion to find peace.  It is not handed to you by your sister, brother and friend, because they too are searching. 

It begins with you. Within you. Be peace.

Tsunami

Recently, I watched a documentary about tsunamis and how the energy it holds moves through the ocean at a speed of 805km/h. Today however, I had an encounter with a different sort of tsunami…fear.

My day was going well. Running errands in the city in the sun,headphones plugged in. It was lunch time, time to do my favorite ‘waiting for government offices to get off their lunch break’ activity-sit down on a public bench, eat a sandwich and watch people going on with their routines. It was a beautiful sight,workmates walking from their offices off to lunch, some ladies carrying a TV wrapped as a gift and a guy bent over tying his shoelaces. 

Then came the screams. 

Fight vs flight mode kicks in. First thing…assess your surroundings, where is the issue coming from? Where are you running off to?  I could almost see the fear move from person to person…like water particles crashing into each other. An energy. Then it hit me.  

Flight…flight…flight. Run towards the calm.
