March of the Mothers

A few days ago I heard of a march for peace by thousands of women. The event was lead by the movement Women Wage Peace. The march was a statement of love, solidarity and peace and took place on October 19th 2016.

A true wonder,  made possible by courageous Israeli and Palestinian women, by women of all kinds of faith.

The news of this historical event was spread by singer/songwriter Yael Deckelbaum and other women and men, by means of the beautiful song “Prayer of The Mothers” and its official video. It’s a pity, and perhaps symptomatic for our current world, most newsagencies didn’t pick up on the news.

I’m glad to share this song and video with you. They are heart-warming and give hope for the future.
Hope for our children, hope for the animals and hope for mankind.

Frieden Salam Shalom Peace Vrede

New beginning – lessons to learn

The year 2015 is now 16 days “young” … and I wish her start has been blissfull and promissing to you …

I’ve decided to let go of old things and start anew. A new beginning not only by mind but also by heart.

The world is in turmoil … I have mixed feelings.

The recent events in France are awfull and I understand why the fast majority of our population wants to send a message of disapproaval of terrorism.
But my heart also goes out to the female victims of rape in India, to the abducted and abused schoolgirls in Nigeria, to the innocent warvictims in the world.

The message of Jezus Christ was to love all beings, for we are all part of Gods Creation.

The world we engage and experience is a mirror of our own actions, thoughts and feelings …
when I encounter abuse or suffering, it is up to me to act on the situation. Sometimes by deeds, but allways in my heart … not by judging nor by condemning but by aknowledging the truth and by forgiving.
I have yet much more lessons to learn.

Gladly there have been wonders too … for instance a piglet that was found wandering a snowy road. He was picked up and brought to a safehaven. He, or she, was probably ment for a privat slaughter, for no one has claimed possession.
Closer to home I have wittnessed some wonders too. For instance the opening of new creative possibilities and the fact that my old lady-cat Sammy is still with us, giving us joy and laughter.

A wounded Dove

A wounded Dove

On Wednesday 8. of October , early in the afternoon, I had a meeting on the other side of the town. I was slightly sad after the meeting. Round about 13:50 hrs I caught the bus home. After the Central Station we had to stop for the red light. As I looked out of the window I saw a dove on the boardwalk.

Her left wing was hanging and nearly touched the ground. It seemed like ages the red light wouldn’t change. In the meanwhile I kept my eye on the dove. She was searching for food. There were some youngster who didn’t even notice her as she had to jump aside to avoid getting trampled on. She couldn’t fly away. Than there were other people who just didn’t care about the dove and she had walk and jump aside, again.

It broke my heart to see this beautiful creature in hurt and in despair, with no help.

Finally the green light went on and the chauffeur drove on. At the next bus stop I got out and walked back towards the street where I saw the dove. From afar I saw her time after time getting aside for the unwillingly or unknowingly harsh people. As I reached her she tried to walk away, with her wing hanging on the ground. It took no great effort to catch her. As I held her in my hands she looked at me, was quiet and not afraid. I could see into her beautiful eyes. And than I saw the horrific wound of her left wing. Gently I placed her under my coat near my heart. She kept quiet and felt warm. Her broken wing she couldn’t fold onto her little body.

On my way home I phoned the animal-ambulance and requested them to come to my home and pick up the wounded dove. Hopefully she can be healed and saved at a bird sanctuary or she will be put down and may return to her Maker.

At home I put the dove in a big box with a soft towel, some water and seeds. I applied several alternative and spiritual healingmethods and sang Mantra’s for her. After a while she got up and started cleaning herself, her left wing was not hanging on the floor of the box. She seemed quite happy and at ease. All of the time she kept me company.

After several hours the ladies of the animal-ambulance arrived and one of them picked up the dove and inspected her wound and general condition. She was slightly malnourished and her left wing could be folded and placed into the right position. The kind lady told with love in her voice that the dove had a good chance of healing. They quickly went on their way towards the bird sanctuary.

I am grateful I had the opportunity to help such a beautiful creature and to witness a wonder … the wonder of a dove who received the chance of being healed.

And somewhere in my heart, I hope there eventually would have been another caring human being who wouldn’t have looked away and who would have helped this dove in need and distress … if I hadn’t been given the chance.

Kind regards
