amazing insight about forgiveness by our friend Mei

m e i r o

Forgiveness is a decision, not a feeling.
If you wait until something or someone makes things happen before you start forgiving,
you will be waiting your whole life!

When you forgive, it doesn’t mean you approve of what others did to you.

Forgiveness is actually a gift you give to yourself, giving you permission to move on with your life.

Anger, bitterness and hatred can consume and dominate you.
It changes who you really are.
It can contaminate your relationships with other people.
It can poison you on all levels of your body – emotionally, physically,
mentally and spiritually until it manifests into illness or diseases.
It will follow you wherever you go, no matter how many times you move and “run away” from your
problems,
your problems are just sitting on your shoulder until you decide to “let them go”.

Since people are human, humans are not perfect and…

amazing poem about inner light,love and so much more

John's Consciousness

“Inner Light” by Ron Davis (December 6th, 2002) Image credit: PBase.com

In the twilight world
Between darkness and light,
I feel more at home
Than ever.

As darkness falls,
My mind awakens;
As darkness increases,
My heart swells
With the memory
Of your touch.

How I loved the moment of closeness
As we embraced!
The revelation of your inner world,
In the fleeting moments
When our eyes met were
More powerful than
The quantum events
That rule the universe.

My capacity for emotion and
Deep feeling extend far beyond
My worldly place,
And beckon me still
In reveries of silence,
In the open spaces
Between thoughts.

You shine a light in my darkness.
You are the life within me.

One step, one heart one mind forward together. Towards a  dream of  united mankind.

One thought, one notion, one urgent quest if only we could understand what we are doing wrong then we could unite at last for the best.

One faith, one notion, one idea on the line. To help each other, to reach out in honesty and care  to encourage each other towards a blessed finish line.

One song, one beat,one rhythm the lyrics are a chant that we can share. One drum,one voice one hum. We need to address nature, our mother planet needs a lot of care. We need to save our planet if we don’t there will be worse to come.

One love, one reason one whole and bless mankind. We need to forget our differences and nations and leave war and hate behind. Fear, hunger and greed we must sweep away we need to…

Blogger Mr.Lawrence al-Rashidi from Kuwait sentenced to ten years in prison

Kuwait: Blogger sentenced to ten years in prison : Arabic Network For Human Rights Information

Cairo – May 17th, 2012   ANHRI condemns the ruling upholding the 10 year imprisonment sentence and 1000 Kuwaiti Dinars fine of Lawrence al-Rashidi, Kuwaiti blogger, on charges of “insulting the Prince and his powers in poems uploaded on YouTube”. ANHRI considers this ruling an evidence that freedom of expression in Kuwait has become at its lowest.   The case goes back to June 2011, when the general prosecution accused al-Rashidi of “spreading false news and rumors about the situation in the country”, “uploading visual and audio recordings prepared by him on YouTube”, “calling for the demolition of values and ethics”, and “calling the tribes to appoint a Prince of the country, demonstrate, confront the ruling regime, and bring down its transgressions”. Al-Rashidi is also being tried because of his posts on Twitter, deemed by the authorities as “an insult to the princely identity”.   It is worth noting that Article 54 of the Kuwaiti constitution stipulates that “the Prince is the head of state whose identity shall not be touched”. This Article contradicts international conventions on human rights that guarantee individuals’ right to freedom of opinion and expression. International conventions also do not put any one above the law or gives him\her immunity against criticism.   “We are deeply disturbed over this cruel and shocking ruling. The campaign launched against the activists in Kuwait is escalating. The Kuwaiti government is detaining bloggers and activists because they express their opinion on the Internet and use it in their discussions and exchange of information,” said ANHRI.   ANHRI also said that Kuwait has failed to adhere to its obligations of guaranteeing human rights and the rule of law, especially after the revolutions of the Arab Spring. The Kuwaiti government has detained a number of bloggers, the best known of them are the tweep Nasser Abel because of expressing his opinion and solidarity with the Bahraini people, and Mohamed al-Melify, writer and blogger. There are also preparations to draft laws restricting freedom of expression on Twitter and other websites.

Very interesting post about censored and banned books in “partially free” Kuwait.

& Arablit

According to the US-based “Freedom House,” Kuwait’s media environment has been “long considered one of the most open in the Middle East[.]” Kuwait was one of just a handful of countries in the region that the political organization labeled “partially free” in their 2011 report, joined in 2012 by Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia.*

However, this “pretty free, comparatively” label is not one all Kuwaitis would give their country’s book culture. One tweeter noted in 2010, “@fajera I get my books either from Beirut or Cairo, half of what I read is banned in Kuwait (everything is banned here)”.

After dozens — or perhaps hundreds (a list wasn’t released) — of books were banned from the 2010 Kuwait International Book Fair, The Kuwait Times quoted an anonymous publisher as saying:

In Kuwait censorship is so severe that we do a self censorship before the Kuwait book fair … We only…
