Tenerife - 25.08.2011 - Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a mans sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly, the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true. Martin L. King Jr.

At some point, in different ways and degrees, weve all been hurt Sometimes by loved ones, or by friends or even worse some of us by the ones who preach in the name of Love ...We ALL need, deserve and long for that joyous inner peace that makes us cherish everything and everybody around us, to feel special, and loved, and cared for because YOU and I, despite our weaknesses and flaws are precious, unique, special and one of a kind


Most of us are going to take some days off during the summer. Lets try for the next two weeks to find time to discover ways to transform hate into love, disdain into compassion. It takes time and effort but the fruits are plentiful. Talk to you in a couple of weeks.
