Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day!

 

Plant a Tree for Earth Day

 

April 22 is Earth Day, and this year it marks the 45th anniversary of what is considered by many the birth of the modern environmental movement that started in April 1970, which focuses on raising awareness by putting environmental concerns up front and center.

 

I invite you to be a part of Earth Day to help build a clean, healthy, diverse world for generations to come. The possibilities for getting involved are endless! Volunteer. Plant a Tree. Install solar panels on your roof. Reduce your consumption. Avoid using plastic and wasting resources. Recycle: Return hangers to the cleaners; donate clothing and computers to charities; use reusable bags and containers.  Use recycled items whenever possible like for example recycled chlorine-free paper. Use energy saving bulbs. Choose cleaning products that are natural and eco-friendly. You can reduce emissions by sharing a car, using public transportation, riding a bike, or walking when possible. Organize an event in your community. Help launch a community garden. Communicate your priorities to your elected representatives. Do something nice for the Earth, have fun, meet new people, and make a difference.

 

More importantly, keep doing these things! Earth Day is Every Day! To build a better future, we must commit to living responsibly year-round.  

Remember, people need the Earth for air,
water, food, and for their existence!

People Need Nature;
Nature Doesn’t Need People!

 

Happy Earth Day!

Happy International Day of Happiness!
Happy Mother’s Day!
Many Blessings for World Water Day! 

 

This week, we celebrate three important occasions:

The first is the UN International Day of Happiness (20 March). In July 2012, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution, which declared that the International Day of Happiness will be observed on 20 March every year. It was celebrated for the first time in 2013.

On this occasion, I wish you a very Happy International Day of Happiness, and would like to encourage you to start a new practice that will increase your happiness, like for example meditation. All kinds of meditations are very beneficial for our mental and physical health when practiced everyday.

One of my favorite meditations of all times is called Loving-kindness Meditation, which focuses on creating feelings of love and kindness towards yourself and others. It is very simple and takes only a few minutes. Here is how to do it:

  • Step one: Sit in a quiet place, in a comfortable position with straight back. Relax your body by taking a few deep breaths. Then think of someone you love; whether it’s a child or a spouse or even a pet; and try as much as you can and hold those loving feelings in your heart. As you are doing that, send them your love by saying the following phrases:

Loving-kindness 2

  • Step two: Let the person or pet you were thinking about slip away, and hold on to the positive feelings. Then take that warm, tender feeling and apply it to yourself, and say the following:

Loving-kindness 1

  • Step three: Continue to apply that loving feeling to others as well as to a larger groups of people, and also to those whom you might not feel that way about. Or if you prefer, you can keep it general and say the following:

Loving-kindness 3

You can do the steps, and say the phrases, in any order you like. The most important thing is to keep the positive emotions in your heart to benefit the most from practicing this meditation. Do this everyday for 30 days and see the difference.

The second occasion we celebrate this week is Mother’s Day (21 March). Take a moment to send your loving thoughts and wishes to Your Mother, to all the Mothers, to all the Women, and to our Mother Earth!

The third occasion we celebrate is World Water Day (22 March). Water is essential for Life; in fact Water is Life. More than 70% of your body is Water. Take a moment and Bless the Water. Say: Thank You Water; I Love You!  (Watch video below!)

 

May You Be Happy!
May You Be Blessed!
May You Be a Blessing to All!

Happy International Day of Happiness!

HAPPY-POSTER-2Happy International
Day of Happiness! 

In July 2011, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which recognized happiness as a “fundamental human goal” and called for “a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes … happiness and well-being of all people.

In April 2012, the first UN conference on Happiness was held in New York. In July 2012, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which declared that the International Day of Happiness will be observed on 20 March every year. It was celebrated for the first time in 2013.

This is a major shift in people’s attitudes, as they are starting to recognize that increasing happiness and well-being is as important as economic growth. 

So, take this opportunity to reflect on what you can do to increase your own happiness and well-being, write a list, choose one thing, and do it right now.

If you can, come to celebrate with us the UN International Day of Happiness by watching the documentary film “Happy”, on Thursday, 20 March, at 7 PM. For more information, please call 07-77225590.

 

In the meantime, listen to this uplifting song and “clap along…”

I wish you a very Happy International Day of Happiness!

Happy Int. Women’s Day!

iwd_5Happy International Women’s Day!

International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8 March is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women.

International Women’s Day first emerged from the activities of labour movements in the beginning of the twentieth century in North America and Europe. Since the year 1908, when 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights; Women have fought for equality.

Three years later, in 1911, the first International Women’s Day was held. However, the United Nations began celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March during International Women’s Year, 1975. 

International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change, and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women living an extraordinary life in their communities.

Happy International Women’s Day!

Come and celebrate International Women’s Day with us at The Feel-Good Movie Club this week. For more information, see below.

Happy Everyday!

By Benjamin Zephaniah

All days are created equal.
Everyday has the right to recognition
And no day should be subject to 
Cruel or degrading treatment.

Everyday has the right to freedom of expression
And the right to participate 
In the cultural life of the community. 

Everyday has the right to belong to
The religion of its choice,
And should not suffer discrimination based on
Sunshine, rainfall, temperature,
Or seasonal orientation.

* * * * * * * *

I wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays,
and a wonderful New Year 2014,
filled with Love, Joy, and inner Peace!

 أتمنى لكم عطلة سعيدة وعيد ميلاد مجيد وسنة جديدة رائعة مليئة بالمحبة والفرح والسلام الداخلي

May You Be Happy, and May You make Being Happy Your Highest Priority in 2014!

Happy International Day of Peace!

peace day

Happy International
Day of Peace!


“Imagine all the people
living life in peace.
You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us,
and the world will be as one.”

~ John Lennon

Today, September 21, marks the United Nations’ International Day of Peace.
I wish You a very Happy and Peaceful Day, Everyday.


How can we, as individuals, contribute to World Peace?

“If in our daily life we can smile,
if we can be peaceful and happy,
not only we, but everyone will profit from it.
This is the most basic kind of peace work.”
~ Thich Naht Hanh

Here are a few simple things that you can do everyday to cultivate Inner Peace and World Peace:

  • Meditate or set in silence for a few minutes;

  • Pray for World Peace, or you can focus on an area where there is conflict right now;

  • Make Peace with someone in your life;

  • Forgive somebody who have hurt you;

  • Send a ‘Thank You’ note to somebody you know;

  • Be kind to somebody you know or a complete stranger.

The 5 Steps to Peace from Neale Donald Walsch’s book New Revelations:

Peace will be attained when we, as human beings…

  • Permit ourselves to acknowledge that some of our old beliefs about God and about Life are no longer working.

  • Explore the possibility that there is something we do not understand about God and about Life, the understanding of which could change everything.

  • Announce that we are willing for new understandings of God and Life to now be brought forth, understandings that could produce a new way of life on this planet.

  • Courageously examine these new understandings and, if they align with our personal inner truth and knowing, enlarge our belief system to include them.

  • Express our lives as a demonstration of our highest beliefs, rather than as a denial of them.

the world is at peace.”

The Healing Power of Pets!

The Healing Power of Pets!

love animals

If you tend to feel sad, lonely or depressed, I recommend that you consider adopting a pet. Many scientific studies have shown that pets can help us heal physically and emotionally.

The Center for Disease Control plainly states that pets can lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, cure loneliness, increase exercise and improve social life. Other research has shown that pet-owners with AIDS are less likely to be depressed than non-owners; that kids growing up with cats and / or dogs tend to have fewer allergies and asthma, stronger immune systems, and learn greater responsibility.

Another study looked at three different conditions to get an understanding of how pets affect our life. They compared pet owners to non-owners;  affectionate vs. less affectionate animals; and observed the healing power of an animal friend after a rejection experience. The results of these studies showed that pet owners reported greater self-esteem, better physical fitness and less loneliness than non-owners. That having any affectionate animal-friend can bring fulfillment and boost wellness even when humans are letting you down. Another finding that there was a positive correlation between pet and people relations: having a great relationship with your pet will be conducive to your social life with people. It appears that this bond strengthens self-esteem, increases happiness and promotes health.

Pet Therapy Programs, which are designed to help people heal physically, emotionally, and socially, have been applied for many years with amazing results. For example, pets have helped patients in hospitals; signer citizens in hospices; children with big challenges; and inmates in prisons. These programs have helped thousands of people heal just by working with animals.

Those of us who have been blessed by the presence of pets in our life know that pets are our close companions because they provide Unconditional Love, Happiness, Laughter, and Friendship. Pets teach us to be more patient and to enjoy the little things in Life.

“A house is not a home without a pet.” ~ Unknown

Free Energy and E-Waste!

earth-day-logo

Free Energy and E-Waste!

Today, I would like to talk about two very important topics: Free Energy and E-Waste.

1. Free Energy

This may sound like Science Fiction, but it is NOT. Actually, we have had the technology, the know how, and the resources to generate free energy from the Zero-point field for decades; however, this technology has been suppressed because it is NOT profitable. If you have ever heard of the genius inventor Nikola Tesla (1856 – 1943), you know what I am talking about. 

Imagine what the World would look like when we have this technology available to everybody all over the globe — most of the problems we face today will vanish, and there would be abundance for All. It is a story of Hope for Humanity!

Fortunately, some courageous people have been working on disclosing information about this technology among other things for several years. One of them is Dr. Steven Greer, who founded the “Disclosure Project”.  Dr. Greer and his team have created a documentary film called ‘Sirius’, which was released last Monday, 22 April, 2013 on the occasion of Earth Day. In this film, they disclose information about Free Energy, ET, UFOs, Money and much more, all of which have been suppressed for decades.

Here is a short clip from the film:

 

For US$ 5, you can watch the entire film online at this link:

The film is subtitled in several languages. So please share it with all the people you know! Everybody deserves to know the Truth!

2. E-Waste

Electronic Waste, or “E-Waste”, is a term used to describe any electronic device that is at the end of its life. This includes cell phones, computers, laptops, monitors, televisions, printers, scanners, and any other electrical device.

With the rapid expansion of technology, combined with the short shelf life of most electronic devices, a lot of E-Waste is generated each year. Often, these discarded devices end up in landfills or are incinerated, which can cause major environmental problems, as many of the chemicals found in these devices are extremely hazardous. These chemicals, which are either leached into the soil or released into the atmosphere when burned, can lead to serious health problems.

So before you buy your next electronic gadget or device, I urge you to consider the following:

  • Consider buying the best equipment you can afford. This will be more expensive in the short-term, however, in the long-term, it will be more economic, as good quality equipment last much longer, and they usually come with a 2 to 3 years guarantee.

  • If your old devices are still functioning, consider donating them to somebody who can use them, like students for example.

  • If the devices cannot be used, consider collecting all of your old electronic materials and take them to repair shops where they can be used as spare parts, or to an E-Waste recycling facility, if you can find one, to make sure they are properly handled.

For your own safety and security, please watch the following video to learn how to deal with these devices properly.

First UN International Day of Happiness!

UN 1st Int Day of Happiness

Celebrating the First United Nations
International Day of Happiness!

“I am encouraged by the efforts of some Governments to design policies based on comprehensive well-being indicators. I encourage others to follow suit. On this first International Day of Happiness, let us reinforce our commitment to inclusive and sustainable human development and renew our pledge to help others. When we contribute to the common good, we ourselves are enriched. Compassion promotes happiness and will help build the future we want.” ~ Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General 

The recently adopted United Nations resolution calling for Happiness to be given a greater priority, and declaring March 20 the International Day of Happiness, is a clear indicator of a profound shift in attitudes all over the world regarding the importance of Happiness.

It is comforting to see that some Governments around the world have started to recognize the importance of increasing people’s Happiness and Wellbeing, as a measure of progress, rather than just focusing on economic growth.

I am sure that more governments will follow; as this is the next step in our evolution, as a species; however, it may take some time. After all, it took the world about 40 years to follow in the footsteps of the visionary King of Bhutan, who was the first to introduce the term, Gross National Happiness, in 1972, as an indicator of progress, rather than just the economic growth.

While it helps a lot to have a government, a boss, or a partner, who considers Happiness a priority; ALL change starts with YOU. However, it does take Courage, which is a Higher Level of Awareness that is necessary to be able to step up, to do the Right Things, and to break away from the habitual patterns of thinking and behaving.

Now that you know the secret to Change and Happiness, what are you going to do about it? You have two choices: You can either continue doing the same things, and nothing will change; or You can start today by adopting the Happiness Decision, and therefore, You will Be the Change You wish to see in the World!

To celebrate this first UN International Day of Happiness, here are a few simple steps that you can take today, that is, if you choose to embark on your journey towards Happiness:

Happiness pledge1. Take the Pledge: say:
“I will create more Happiness in the World around me!”

2. Take action: ask yourself:
“What can I do today to make somebody Happy?” And do it!

3. Learn more about the Science of Happiness: find out:
How You can create more Happiness in the World for Yourself and others! 


Happy International Day of Happiness!
