The Wednesday thought – Compassion

showing support when our friend has a problem – we can solve it together, no worries 🙂

For this occasion, I have chosen the word COMPASSION. I’ve seen very often children and animals being compassionate to each other and more rarely adults showing compassion. I think this is wrong, as adults should be initiators of such behaviours as it is them who are educating children, not vice-versa. I would be happy to see more compassion among my fellow-adults in all the situations of every day life. Compassion can unite persons of any age, sex or background and can peacefully create more gratitude among people in our society.

In comparison to ignorance or selfishness which are very often seen nowadays, compassion puts people together and creates a peace of mind and such good inner emotions that are bringing about also a lower blood pressure, a more relaxed body & mind and a better immunity. Selfishness creates negative feelings and emotions between people, while compassion hamonises the souls and creates a common feeling of shared support, which is essential especially when someone is suffering.

Just remember that most of the people you run into have more difficult lives than yours, so show them with generosity some COMPASSION if needed, it does not cost a thing. Have a happy & peaceful summer everyone 🙂 !

“Lilacs” — The Peter and Gertrud Klopp Family – for Peace

Originally posted on Portraits of Wildflowers: In 1912 my father, Jack (Jacob) Schwartzman, was born in Vinnytsia, a town then under Russian control in the part of eastern Europe that is now Ukraine. In the 1920s his family escaped from the tyranny of the Soviet Union and came to America to be free. Upon his…

“Lilacs” — The Peter and Gertrud Klopp Family

Dear readers, I am sharing a post of fellow blogger Peter Klopp, as a solidarity for the people of Ukraine who are now suffering because of the lack of respect and civilisation from the Russian neighbour. It goes without saying that I, as a citizen on this planet and as a human being, totally condemn this attacks… I don’t have friends in Ukraine yet but I know how it was in my country and the countries of my friends from Eastern Europe when the Communists came and seemed that did not want to leave…They did not just come for a walk, they destroyed places and killed people for no reason…The Nazis did the same….But I am also wondering, like mr. Klopp’s father, when our and everyone’s rulers will stop KILLING & DESTROYING JUST FOR PUTTING MORE MONEY OR POWER IN THEIR POCKETS? We are already in 2022……and still in many civilised places, democracy does not exist.

Take care of yourselves and remember the song “Let it be” whenever you may be!

The Wednesday thought – Empathy

I was thinking of this word for a while and finally I dedicate it this post – EMPATHY. I think this is also an important quality for anyone of us. It can be natural or aquired consciously but it is better to have it, in my opinion. I have no idea if the rich and successful people on the planet are empathic or not, as they cannot take decisions related to feelings, emotional intelligece or such unimportant things… But not all the rich and powerful ones are also empathic. At the same time, maybe not all the empathic people are rich. Hmmm…anyway, I think that someone who lives long and wisely for sure is empathic and this can be a pretty good model for us. Empathy is not easy to show but solidarity also helps. Start by showing solidarity to someone you care about, especially when they need it the most, and you are on the right way to be empathic.

So choose to be successful, decide to stay healthy, keep your inner balance and be empathic. Sooner or later, everything you need will surely come to you, as you give out the right empathic vibes 🙂
