Message For All Of Humanity Charlie Chaplin

In these difficult times that humanity is going through, we all need to be inspired and motivated. We need to hear messages of hope and wisdom.

I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor
That’s not my business
I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone
I should like to help everyone if possible
Jew, Gentile, Black Man, White
We all want to help one another, human beings are like that
We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery
We don’t want to hate and despise one another.

And this world has room for everyone, and the good Earth is rich and can provide for everyone
The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way
Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed
We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in
Machinery that gives us abundance has left us in want

Our knowledge has made us cynical
Our cleverness, hard and unkind
We think too much, and feel too little
More than machinery, we need humanity

More that cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness
Without these qualities life will be violent, and all will be lost

The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together
The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men – cries out for universal brotherhood – for the unity of us all
Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world – millions of despairing men, women, and little children – victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people
To those who can hear me, I say – do not despair

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed – the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people
And so long as men die, liberty will never perish

Don’t give yourselves to brutes – men who despise you – enslave you – who regiment your lives – tell you what to do – what to think and what to feel!
Who drill you – diet you – treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder
Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts!

You are not machines!
You are not cattle!
You are men!
You have the love of humanity in your hearts!
You don’t hate!

Only the unloved hate – the unloved and the unnatural!

Don’t fight for slavery!
Fight for liberty!
In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: “the Kingdom of God is within man” – not one man nor a group of men, but in all men!

In you!
You, the people have the power – the power to create machines
The power to create happiness!
You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure
Then – in the name of democracy – let us use that power – let us all unite
Let us fight for a new world – a decent world that will give men a chance to work – that will give youth a future and old age a security

By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power
But they lie!
They do not fulfill that promise
They never will!
Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people!

Now let us fight to fulfill that promise!
Let us fight to free the world – to do away with national barriers – to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance

Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness
In the name of democracy, let us all unite

Are We Alone In This World Of Ours?

Well, I think it all depends how you look at it. People surround us, unless you live in the woods, people are all over the city and communities, right? But still, we can be all alone. Because loneliness can be physical or spiritual (mental loneliness for the ones who do not believe in a spirit inside of us).

When we are born, we are born alone, and then we die alone. It’s in the time in between, when we grow up, develop into adulthood and elder age that we tend to feel or be alone.

For the lucky ones, the ones who are really loved by their parents, relatives and friends, they get to part from this world surrounded by them and blessed by them. But many get to die…alone, physically, I mean.

Because many others, even though they have nobody with them in their final time on this earth, they die with a smile on their face showing a glory of peace. As a medical doctor I have seen these faces, when none of their relatives showed up at the end.

Only me, as her doctor and two nurses around her, but she was so peaceful and content when she passed. Her last words were full with blessings to me and my nurses. Bless her soul. She was full with love inside of her. She did not die alone. And not because we, the three of us, were with her, it was because of the way she lived her life and respected herself, the way she loved herself.

This tells me that, even when people are surrounding you, you can be all alone. and if you live alone physically, but you have taken care of your mind and soul through out your life, you are NOT alone! But, you can have both, definitely! I have seen that too. And it’s wonderful when you can see that a human being has love all around him/herself.

Maybe it’s like K.D. Lang sings in Constant Craving: “Even through the darkest phase be it thick or thin, always someone marches brave here beneath my skin.” My thought: that someone…it’s YOU!

Beautiful Sunday Morning and a Poem

Person on the rock admiring nature

Beautiful Sunday Morning


Each day is born with a sunrise
and ends in a sunset, the same way we
open our eyes to see the light,
and close them to hear the dark.
You have no control over
how your story begins or ends.
But by now, you should know that
all things have an ending.
Every spark returns to darkness.
Every sound returns to silence.
And every flower returns to sleep
with the earth.

The journey of the sun
and moon is predictable.
But yours,
is your ultimate
― Suzy Kassem

Beauty in Language and in Malala: Don’t Let Anything Discourage You!

“If you speak three, four or more languages, you start seeing the world from a dissimilar perspective: we are all one, we just express our feelings and our culture in a divergent way”—Dr. Martha A. Castro Noriega, MD
