~ Beginn einer Hoffnung



Allmählich entdecke ich sie – vorsichtlich –
die Dinge, die Merkmale von Dir.

Empfindliche Reaktion – von Dir.
Dein Körper wird bewohnt – von mir.
Es kribbelt, ungewohnt, direkt –
explosiv.

Mit einem Mal ziehst Du Dich zurück –
verschlossen.

Ich beginne von Neuem -
Erfahrungen zu machen.


( 1984 )

~ How To Forgive...



Would you deliberately choose bitterness over happiness? Of course not! Yet so often, indirectly and unknowingly, that is exactly the choice that you make. A choice that can keep you trapped with no hope of escape. Forgiveness is the most powerful tool to relieve suffering! 

In fact, you are able to change all those old patterns of beliefs and actions that are driven by bitterness. As you let go of grudges, you’ll no longer define your life by how you’ve been hurt, and you may even find depths of compassion and understanding you never knew you had.

~ Discussion: How much do you love me?

Out of nowhere, my first and forever blogging girlfriend from the philipines, Hye asked her hon this question one time… maybe to test him or just to start a conversation. He paused for awhile (five seconds) then smartly answered back "none".

Hye asked him why he had to pause, he said he wants to be sure with his answer... then both laughed. They laughed because we both know whatever the answer may be, it's nothing for them.



Hye believes this is not the reality to many people. Nowadays, we hear stories like: A girl married his husband because he is wealthy and powerful. She vowed she will love him come what may... but when the man became broke, they divorced. The girl actually did not love his husband. She loved his money. Or was it actually love.

  

Here are some thoughts I've saved from Hye´s discussion board - enjoy!

cathara says:  
with any 'how' questions that my guy asked me, i was always like 'i dont/cant know how to answer how questions. i dont know hes already pissed with that haha!i even hate the song 'how deep is your love'.i just think that in loving, there shouldnt be any measurement, it should be infinite.
veryheaven ouverture says:
in lovesongs singers moan: give me back my love, all i want is you, i can make it alone, was she worth it (the affair). in therapy millions of people grain about their misconceptions of love and happy living. you all agree to love yourself first - what about the idea, to let someone "just" love you - or even more provoking: why don´t we cherish their love for us by spending all the money we have on those who we love? think about it.
is money such a bad thing to spend for lovely arrangements and something so very special? we pay 1000 dollars for one night for a hotel room with a golden plated bath-room or for juwelery, wellness, travels, dinners, crafts from "no-knowns" and than say proudly "hugh, must be so expensive because....she/he does everything to meet my needs". so what the hack is wrong with loving the person PLUS spending all your money on the one YOU love and on the one who loves YOU? just simple questions :-)

@ cathara: because love is seldom, rare, hard to decipher, so precious, it should be measured somehow - i am saying: you should know if s/he deserves your love.
my families friends show their respect and love to us - and we to them - in various ways:
a partner-creditcard, a hut on the beach for a weekend, a sabbatical, personal gifts, a greeting card, a selfbaked bread, anything that makes a person happy...fantasy rules. nobody needs to give back - nobody ows nobody anything.
hAiLiE says:
Anyhoo, to anwser the topic: I really don't know how I'd react. I'd prolly be going with Catea's answer. But if we'll really be poetic about it, I think I'd say this: "You know how big the universe is? Not as big enough as my love for you." Cheesy. I made that one up. =p

But yeah, love happens for no reason at all. And because it's such an intangible concept it can never be measured...
bluedreamer27 says:
gheeeh i havent had a wife but then for me love is truly worthless
its priceless
love is something money cant compared too
love cant be measured in quantity
coolingstar9 says:
It is true that true love should not associated with money.
We need to love ourselves fully before we love others.
Alvin Lim says:
love n care are 2 of the things that u cannot really quantify. "how much do u love me?" or "i care you more than you care for me"...these questions will bring more problems that solutions. :P

i might say this girl doesnt care for me...and i care her more than she cares for me. but fact is, i cant measure it that way. maybe she is very busy with work, and that level of care is the best she can give. this doesnt mean she cares less.

and well, money IS becoming more n more important in this era. sadly, a lot of ppl got married because of money esp in asia countries.
veryheaven ouverture says:
I don´t want anybody to mistake me. All I meant to say was: if money does not count in love, if money does not mean a thing, than don´t talk about it. don´t even compare love with it. give it, spend it, no matter for what and why and when. I´d rather give something of my soul than pay someone for a heartful tip. but here in germany - i tell you - so many couples get divorced because of money one is not willing to spend on the other. husbands say: you don´t need to dress nice for me, it´s my money and i decide what it will be spend on. money rules marriage in too many ways, still. my beloved grandma used to give me each weekend 20 dollars, and i said: no, thanks, and she said: i am to old to walk downtown to search for givts. you buy yourself what you like. she did so for 10 years, and i saved 50 % of her donations and send her on holidays to marocc. i was 18 years, then. I give my friends all my love and care i have in my heart - and if giving money to those who need it means love - I give it all to them. please try to "feel" my words in your language.
Hye says:
Hi VeryHeaven, I do respect your opinion. Not because you believe in something I can't agree about means, I mistake your opinion. I do respect what you have to say. Trust is, I love it when you share your opinion here because you give a different side of the topic.

Wow, you are a great granddaughter, that is all I can say. I get your point about the money thing... I think it is okay to give money as a sign of your love. As I said earlier, love should be over money not the other way around ;D
cathara says:
VeryHeaven, its your opinion, as hye said. and its highly respected by everyone :D. well in my case, thats just how i believe and see loving. sure i want somethin back as well, but hey! doesnt mean were couple we shouldnt respect our individuality?:-P peace out.
and about divorce in germany, i believe there was one leader in there who tries to impose 7 years of marriage, then you couples could renew it if you want.:-P hhmmm...i was temporarily married for 7 days,thats nothin really serious though. beat that:D
veryheaven ouverture says:
@cathara: the german politicians name is Mrs Gabriela Pauli. She defines marriage through love, not a as place to rescue and stay in forever after s/he may found it, the "team" doesn´t fit anymore - link to the story in the german newspaper "Die Welt".

Editorial Jan 2008: Creatio Ex Deus - The Life of God (as Told by Himself)


At the center of Franco Ferrucci's inspired novel is a tender,
troubled God. 


In the beginning is God's solitude, and because God is lonely he creates the world. He falls in love with earth, plunges into the oceans, lives as plant and reptile and bird. His every thought and mood serve to populate the planet, with consequences that run away from him—sometimes delightfully, sometimes unfortunately.

When a new arrival emerges from the apes, God believes he has finally found the companion he needs to help him make sense of his unruly creation. Yet, as the centuries pass, God feels more and more out of place in the world he has created; by the close of his memoir, he is packing his bags.

Highly praised and widely reviewed, The Life of God is a playful, wondrous, and irresistible book, recounting thousands of years of religious and philosophical thought.


Blessed are the readers, for this tale of God's long insomnia will keep them happily awake ;)

"A supreme but imperfect entity, the protagonist of this religiously enlightened and orthodoxically heretical novel is possessed by a raving love for his skewed, unbalanced world. . . . Blessed are the readers, for this tale of God's long insomnia will keep them happily awake. . . . Extraordinary." —Umberto Eco

"The Life of God is, in truth, the synthesis of a charming writer's . . . expression of his boundless hopes for, and poignant disappointments in, his own human kind." —Jack Miles, New York Times Book Review

"Rather endearing. . . . This exceedingly amusing novel . . . is a continuous provocation and delight; there isn't a dull page in it." —Kirkus Reviews

"A smart and charming knitting of secular and ecclesiastic views of the world. . . . The character of God is likable—sweet, utterly human. . . . The prose is delightful . . . the writing is consistently witty and intelligent and periodically hilarious." —Allison Stark Draper, Boston Review

"'God's only excuse is that he does not exist,' wrote Stendhal, but now Franco Ferrucci has provided the Supreme Being with another sort of alibi." —James Morrow, Washington Post Book World

 



IL MONDO CREATIO 
Chi parla è Dio, che racconta di come ha creato il mondo, dei tanti incontri con personaggi fondamentali della storia dell'umanità, da Eraclito e Budda a Mosè e Cristo, fino ad arrivare ai poeti e pensatori dell'età moderna. 

Questo Dio narrante è un personaggio indimenticabile, onnipotente eppure pasticcione e smemorato, solitario e vulnerabile, mai davvero compreso dalle sue creature più amate. 

Ecco così le discussioni con i filosofi presocratici e le liti con Mosè, ecco l'amore per una donna bellissima che diventerà secoli dopo Maria, ecco le guerre e le incomprensioni, un senso assoluto di impotenza divina e divina voglia di dare felicità.

FREE your Mind - and the rest will follow! 


Genau. Zum Beispiel kümmern Sie sich ab sofort um Ihre BERUF-UNG, ihre emotionale Heilung, ihre Hobbies, Ihre Freunde, Ihre Träume, um die Nachbarin, ihren Lieblingsbarkeeper, um all die Menschen, die für Sie sind und mit denen Sie etwas gemeinsam haben.

Sagen Sie sich jetzt und heute los von Tyrannen und  

Möchtegern-Wunscherfüllern (m/f), die weinen, wenn sie Versprechungen nicht einlösen, sich wie Hyänen oder Derwische verhalten, beleidigend bis erniedriegend werden, wenn SIE - meine Damen - die Einlösung des Versprechens zur rechten Zeit erwarten. Oder aber Sie entdecken, dass Monsieur Ihnen verspricht, was er nicht halten kann, um Sie zu halten und Versprechungen in die Zukunft legt, weil er zu stolz ist sich einzugestehen, dass er manches nicht ändern kann im Moment, weil Sachzwänge oder eine berufliche Flaute die Ursache sind. 

Dann können Sie immer noch a) ihn vor die Tür jagen und in die never-come-back-Airlines nach Kanossa einchecken oder b) großzügig drei Monate auf Bewährung verlängern oder c) verreisen und Ihren Groll zur Hölle schicken. Aber richtig! (klick zum Tip)
Natürlich halten Sie Ihre Zusagen immer ein, weil Sie nichts versprechen, was Sie nicht geben können, oder? Also mit Verlaub, Belästigung und Mobbing am Arbeitsplatz kosten Frau und Mann sowohl Job, Einkommen und Reputation. Merkwürdig. Belästigung und Behinderung am heiligen Ort der Liebe - in der Seele und den eigenen vier Wänden -, in einer Ehe, Begleitbeziehung, Affaire oder Liebesbindung werden sanktionslos hingenommen? 
Ich bitte Sie! Sie sind doch nicht emotional erpressbar oder Mädchen für alles. ER natürlich auch nicht der Mann für alle Fälle - womöglich so´n Tool Time Typ (US-Comedy Serie). 
Meine Ex-Vertraute und -Seminarpartnerin Gabriela Friedrich*, Love-Coach und PR-Frau hält es damit: "Natürlich kann ich mich aufregen. Über all die Unbillen des Lebens und das, was die Männer so verzapfen. Aber ich muss nicht. Ich kann mich entscheiden, einfach mit den Schultern zu zucken und "Fuck it" zu sagen. Und mich um Wichtigeres kümmern". Fuck it-Buddhismus nennt sie das. Gleiches Recht für Alle. Deshalb...


Machen Sie es doch wie Gott! Nein? Warum nicht!  
Er war ein kreativer Manager und Entwickler. Und es gesellten sich viele Freiwillige, Diener und Engel hinzu, die ihm bei der Verwirklichung und Promotion seiner Ideen zur Seite standen - und stehen, bis heute. 

Das Paradies ist jetzt und hier.

Ich empfehle als Inspirations-Literatur den wunderbaren Roman "Die Schöpfung. Das Leben Gottes, von ihm selbst erzählt", von Franco Ferrucci. Zu köstlich, wie sich einer aufmacht, der alles kann, und so oft niedergestreckt wird von seinen eigenen Idealen oder den gerade geschöpften Kreaturen. Ferrucci ist Italiener, kreuzkatholisch, Frauenanbeter, temperamentvoll, poetisch. Herrlich, wie lebendig, bilderreich und sinnlich-hintergründig Ferrucci von purer Schaffenslust und schierer Verzweiflung durch und über diesselbe eines Göttlichen berichtet.

Nebenbei: Gott besuchte die Menschen, als ein Affe ihm von ihrer Existenz erzählte. Der Affe erinnerte sich als einziger an Gott als seinen Schöpfer. Ferruccis Gott ist fehlbar und ein Suchender, der der Kirche zum Opfer fällt. Die heutige Darstellung zeichnet von "unserem Gott" das Bild eines Allmächtigen mit riesigem Werkzeugkasten (LifeSciences) aus. Mann sucht wohl einen exzellenter Erden-Leben-Manager. Mann spricht ihm auch eine große Zerstörungskraft zu. Ferruccis Gott verließ die Erde, reiste einsam im Weltraum umher auf der Suche nach einer besseren Welt. Wie der Schöpfer so seine Kinder?  


Ich frage Sie: Wer ist (die) Göttin, wo wohnt sie und wie lebt sie ihre Schöpfungsgabe aus?

Bittersüss

Küsse

Bittersüß verheißungsvoll,
Getaucht in zinnoberrotes Licht,
Ergötzen sich an Sinnlichkeit,
und Obsession, fallen tief zu Boden,
verhallen im Brunnen der scheinbaren
Gewissheit.

Das einzig wahre Gesicht,
Verbirgt sich, fast jungfräulich,
fast verletzt, hinter dem Narziss
„Vergissmeinnicht“

Dort, am wunden Punkt,
erwarte mich, dort empfange
ich Dich.

God, just give her my voice....


Two eyes look at me from across the room. Two small eyes, sparkling with anticipation. A pretty young girl rises from her seat. As she approaches me, 
an impish grin forms on her tiny, elfin face.

It’s time for her music lesson. Time for the magical melodies to escape from her tiny soul. 
Time for giggles. Time for starlit smiles and gleaming gazes filled with hope.
“Sarah?” I ask, already knowing that she’s my new student.
She nods shyly, grinning from ear to ear. This is her first voice lesson, an she’s excited. Her mom has agreed to give her an opportunity to fulfill her wildest dream. She wants to be a singer. A famous singer. And, she’s willing to work for it. And, hopefully, she’ll do it. She’ll become the next Celine Dion.
“What do you want to do with your music?” I ask, already knowing the answer.
“I want to be a famous singer,” she replies, with a look of serious intent.
“Well, I don’t know about that,” I said. “You have a lot to learn between now and then. It takes time to learn how to sing. And, once you’ve learned, it takes even more time to become famous.”
“I don’t care,” she says with that familiar grin.
I feel my eyebrows rise as I consider her answer. She’s an eager one, I think. I wonder how long she’ll last. I wonder how long it will take before she’s even able to sing, let alone her chances at fame and fortune. But, I know better than to dismiss her ambition. Teachers encourage hope. Teachers enable young minds to dream, and it is my job to give her what she needs, in order to find that dream.
“Well,” I said, “we’ll see what we can do.” First things first. Time for some vocal scales and some pitch control exercises. I play a few notes on the piano, and look across the keyboard to that hopeful face.
“I’d like you to try to sing these notes,” I said.
With sheer abandon, she sings a note. A strong note. Unfortunately, it’s not the one I just played.
“Try that again, Sarah,” I said, playing the note again.
She makes a second attempt. Again, it’s wrong. So, I change the note thinking that it’s too high for her. She can’t sing that one, either. And, what’s even worse, she sings the same note as the last one. For five minutes, she sang the same note, over and over again. She’s monotone, I think. This is going to be a problem.
A big problem. People, who are monotone, can’t sing at all. They are the ones who always sing too loud in church, and they can only sing one note. I can’t tell her this. I can’t tell her that her dream will not be fulfilled. Instead, we keep trying.
We tried for weeks. Still she sang the same note, over and over again. I sing along with her. It doesn’t help. But, even though she wasn’t improving, she kept that twinkle in her eyes. It got to be a joke with her. She would sing that note, and burst into laughter. It didn’t seem to bother her, and I wasn’t going to give up hope. Now, I was the hopeful one, and she was oblivious to the situation. Until one day, a few weeks later, everything changed.
“Okay, Sarah, we’re going to try it again,” I said, with a slight sense of sadness. I couldn’t continue to take her mother’s money for this. We worked hard every lesson, but nothing was happening. I had even said a prayer for Sarah, asking God if he would just take my voice, and give it to her. I wasn’t using it. I could sing, but I was more of a pianist.
Just give her my voice, I had asked.
As we sat there that day, I was almost afraid to go through this ritual again. But, I proceeded to play her a note.
She sang it.
Correctly.
My eyes opened wide. I couldn’t believe it, so I played it again.
She sang it again.
Correctly.
Thinking that I must have mistakenly played her favorite note, I played a different one. She sang that one, too. Correctly. I played another note. She sang that one, too. Then, another. And, another.
“What’s happened?” I said with a feeling of shock.
“I don’t know!” she replied with excitement.
She then bursts into laughter, as usual. And, eventually, we’re both laughing. I would play a note, she would sing it, and we’d both start giggling. In between my giggles, I wondered what was going on. This child is monotone. She’s not supposed to be able to sing. But, we continue to go up and down the scale, until I played some notes that she couldn’t reach. They were too high. So, I tried to sing them for her. But, I couldn’t.
I had lost my voice.
