Thirst

Thirst is what makes me try
Thirst is what makes me cry
Thirst is what dissolves me
Thirst is what resurrects me

Thirst is why I need to try
Thirst is why I have to cry
Thirst is why I feel needed
Thirst is why I should keep it

Thirst is when I find no words
Thirst is when I silently work
Thirst is when there is no past
Thirst is when there can be trust

Thirst, a name for the tears
Thirst, a name for the dreams
Thirst, a name for true love
Thirst, a name for our God

Love nature and love people

You should know how to love nature and love people. You should know that those who cannot love people or love nature cannot love God. Because all things of creation are symbols for God and because people are substantial beings, those who know how to love all things of creation and people will come to love God.

You should always love nature. You should love nature and love people. You should love people of all five colours in the human race. Would God say, “Oh, I like only white people”? Then everyone would have to wear only white clothes. All white people would have to wear only white clothes, and throw away all their coloured clothes. Why would you wear black clothes or coloured clothes? That would be a contradiction.

Even all the elements and the smallest creatures go toward the way of love. They are moving toward being the cells of humankind that can directly contact the love that is one with God. For this reason, we should sacrifice ourselves for the sake of love. We should invest ourselves.

Since there is a tradition of pouring out one’s life and possessions in their entirety, lower entities seek to give their whole being for the sake of higher entities. This is not Darwin’s Theory of Evolution but a theory of absorption based on love. The question is how the value of one of the smallest creatures increases as it becomes material to be used in creating the next higher level of value.

We should feel that all creatures of God are objects of our love. We should be people who can love, and be loved by, even the smallest forms of life, not to mention human beings, as well as everything visible and invisible in heaven. When a bird calls, “Chirp, chirp, chirp” in the morning, instead of saying, “You pesky sparrow, I am trying to sleep late. Why are you chirping?!” say, “Oh, thank you. You came to wake me up. Ha ha, you are telling me that an important guest is coming to see me.” The outlook is different. This is a great thing.

Centered on such people, a myriad of angels in heaven form a subject realm of harmony where they can have give and take with people, as butterflies and bees do with flowers. When that happens, a flowery garden of harmony will surely appear in which God rejoices, people rejoice, angels rejoice and all things are immersed in love. A spring party will then begin.

God created the angelic world at the same time that He created the human world. What kind of world is the angelic world? Only when human beings appear with beauty and fragrance – like blossoms that exist for the sake of bearing one fruit – will the nest of love finally be prepared. Hence, all life starts from there, and all beings that have life can harmonize starting from there. Human beings make this harmony possible.

After You Successfully Survived the Holiday

Dear Friends,

I hope and wish you had a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas, with full of love, care and inner prosperity!

Now, let’s take a look around the world with me!

As we have just celebrated love, is it safe to say the rest of the world could do it, too?

Aside from religious and cultural affiliations, can we really be sure, each and every people of the world, children, elders, siblings, parents could join us in the feast of love, at a festive table?

Have the estranged ones united? Have the broken ones healed? Have the lost ones been mourned? Have the hungers been fed? Have the sick ones got any better? Have the wars ended? Have the inner peace and wisdom overcome the falsehood and enmity? Has this world could stop and become joyous for a mere two days?

I’m not talking about only the farther part of the world, just let’s look around in our families, towns, countries.

It seems, our job hasn’t ended yet.

And what is it exactly?

Getting to know each other, sharing with each other, exchanging among each other, beyond beliefs, cultures, nations and borders. For that, internet can be one of the most efficient and useful tool, a very first step, and a series of steps. So, why not to use it for goodness?

If you feel yourself lagged behind of helping people, feeling less efficient in it, or just simply do not know how, make a commitment to yourself. If you feel so, write it on a piece of paper and post it above your screen. You can also write it in a comment, below.

A commitment to make a really efficient and fruitful year of getting to know each other in the world in a true way, learning beyond beliefs, cultures and borders, sharing truth, light, wisdom, care and love, without expecting anything in return, for the benefit of others, so, you could really be a part of a much better, greater reality in a year, together.

Are you ready to do that?

Little Nightingale

Little Nightingale
Little Nightingale
Where have you gone
Where have you been

The night is a vigil
If I can’t see you
The day is gloomy
If I can’t hear you

Little Nightingale
Little Nightingale
Where have you gone
Where have you been

Here is my hand
Empty, but full
Life-worn wrinkles
Among them seeds

Little Nightingale
Little Nightingale
Where have you gone
Where have you been

I saw you in the future
A vivid daydream
I couldn’t bear
You weren’t there any-more

Little Nightingale
Little Nightingale
Where have you gone
Where have you been

I’m gasping out
It’s you, you are here
I am relieved
Please, don’t go

A Prayer for a Friend

Life was hard to you today

Life was hard to you yesterday

I can see why you can’t see the real light

There is a shadow inside you

And it will grow until you let it go

But don’t do this in vain

Only to pour it away

We all need to learn from hardships

Tribulations make us stronger

Amidst the grieve we should grow

And there is a partner for that

You know His name by heart

He has always been there for you

Believe me, He is here for you

Let me pray and ask His help

Let me offer this for you:

Heavenly Parent,

Please, hear me out!

My friend is in trouble

Without a clear sight

Loosing the shore

Please, help this child

Who is truly one of Yours

Or at least on the way home

Ease that pain inside

Your child needs the light

There has been too much of the dark

Please, show that eternal flame

Magic of Truth, Care and Love

What created this world

The beauty of life

Please, help my friend

Through the night!

Thank you,

Heavenly Parent,

Thank You!

Diamond Heart

My heart makes a diamond change

Your gold is true my one seemed fake

Till the day I finally found you

In an alley of a shadowed time

 

A voice struck into me

You would be my Saviour

And from that moment on

I know where I belong

 

How amazing you are

I tend to forget

When I prefer my scars

Over your love

 

It is a journey

I’d never known I would take

It is an awakening

A continuous rebirth

 

As channel of Light

People can see me sometimes

But what I would worth

Without Earth

 

All the symphonies

Of words and sounds

I have ever created

Reflect a bit of You

 

A lot of You

 

 

Joshua Dragon

 

a writing heart

a writing heart
a missing voice
the forgotten echoes

a dried throat
a numbing need
the isolated castle

a crying child
an abandoned life
the leftover happiness

a bleeding wound
a dull life
the reality of today

a collapsed world
a broken promise
the unchanging Will

an imperfect copy
a blurred shadow
the fallen hope

a willing hand
an unshaken heart
the Dream of Yours

a caring love
an active deed
the ceaseless joy

You’ve dreamed to come true!

 

Joshua Dragon

Don’t worry, my child

Don’t worry, my child
don’t you worry
I’m standing right next to you
I’m with you

You may think the world is over
you might feel this way
but even if it is so
I’ll be with you

The broken sadness in you
will pass away
complete happiness will rise
with the morrow

Loneliness and Isolation
the two loyal friends
Abundant Grace
will better suit to you

Can you accept, my child
the love I’m giving you
Can I give you more
to heal you by tomorrow

I’m worried my child,
I’m worried for you
I’d like to find a way
a better way to and for you

But you shan’t worry
if you open up
just a little bit more
let me embrace you

You may think I’m too old
and you are independent
to be so close friends
partners for life

I’m here any case
trying to catch you
when you fail
and when you fly

Don’t worry, my child
the troubles are for the yesterday
you can rest now
I’ll protect you for eternity

(from the book: Pray with me)

I’m here with you

I’m here with you
I’m here in the breeze
I’m here in the sunbeams
I’m here in the creek
I’m here in the cliffs
I’m here in the grass
I’m here in the trees
I’m here in the fragrance
I’m here in the colours
I’m here in the distance
I’m here next to you
I’m in your heart, too
