About Guestspeaker

A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world. We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".

America’s current belief system has eroded her foundation


”Just as water rapidly eroded the banks of the mighty Colorado River
and created a vast Grand Canyon,
America’s current belief system (relativism) has eroded her foundation and created a moral void.
~ Shane Idleman in America Needs to Turn Back to God.”

Fijn kopzorgen weg te bergen

Soms is het fijn
als je even al je kopzorgen opzij kan plaatsen.Al enkele dagen mochten wij genieten van zomerse dagen.
Laat daarbij de zon in je hart schijnen
en geniet van elke warme zonnestraal.

Courage, Fear, and our vulnerability

My Diary Pages

Photo by Man Dy on Pexels.com

Without courage, we can not practice any virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous or honest.

Maya Angelou

Life is a strange, yet beautiful composition of laughter and tears, joy and sorrows, love and loss, struggle and stumble, success and failure, expectations and disappointments and a lot more.. It is completely perfect with all its ingredients and flavours, nothing is out of context.

We are living in a time of “disconnection” — more importantly, a disconnection with our authentic selves and emotions. We don’t embrace any emotion as is, and identify it as either “good” or “bad”. Therefore, we know none at its core level. We usually mask our genuine emotion just to fit-in the society we live in. For example, it can be embarrassing for us to talk about our fears, while being “fearless” is the ideal term to be…

Empathy..!!

My Diary Pages

In the quiet of the night,

silence of my heart,

hiding several storms,

with the shattered peace,

and the lost voice,

looking with my wondering eyes,

Grieving with my hurting soul..

Compassion, empathy, human connections are the jewels of authentic relations and the true essence of the human experience — which give meaning to our lives. Unfortunately in the growing digital culture, though we are more socially connected than ever, we are more isolated too, than ever. Human vulnerability is at stake today.

We are living in a culture of shame, blame, fear, and disconnection. People take not a moment to dishonour someone, and pushing him to suffer extreme depression and finally into complete isolation. Public shaming/online shaming can have the worst consequences.

Shame is universal and it triggers us all in different ways and forms. We all have our moments of imperfections but people forget it while targeting…

Megachurches poor places for formation and pastoral care


”Megachurches
“are poor places for formation and pastoral care”
and tend toward
“addictive dependence”
on their founders..”

~Tim Keller

150 West 83rd Street, home to Redeemer’s Upper West Side location

Redeemer Presbyterian Church (New York City) – The auditorium of the W83 ministry center

These were the words of Tim Keller in a recent Facebook post, explaining why the megachurch he founded — Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City — decided to split into three congregations when he retired in 2017.

Keller planted Redeemer back in 1989 with just 50 people, but by 2008, the church had grown to a total weekly attendance of more than 5,000 people to its services each Sunday at venues on the Upper West Side, Upper East Side and Downtown.

No Person Is Perfect

Dr. Austin Ejaife inspirit

“I have learned, that the person I have to ask for forgiveness from the most is: myself. You must love yourself. You have to forgive yourself, everyday, whenever you remember a shortcoming, a flaw, you have to tell yourself “That’s just fine.” You have to forgive yourself so much, until you don’t even see those things anymore. Because that’s what love is like.” ~ C. JoyBell C. …

Following yesterday’s inspiration on accepting ourselves, I would like to delve a bit further into some of what self-acceptance entails: that being self-love. No person is perfect; we all make mistakes in our lives. Yet regardless of this truth, there is no one more deserving of our compassion and gentleness than we are; even more importantly, there is no one more deserving of our forgiveness than we are. Unfortunately, however, there is usually no one who receives less of any of these…

Feminism not about making women stronger


Feminism isn’t about making women stronger.
Women are already strong.
It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.’

Boris Johnson- still telling it like it isn’t.

Obbverse

Trotting Out The Twisted Pig Tales.

Still Boris Johnson keeps on clinging on,
It's a high wire he's sweatily swinging on,
It's quite the parlous position he is in;
Why or whoever could be the reason?

He has apologised for the crass behaviour,
He's cravenly asked Sue to do him a favour,
Even gone where a Johnson rarely ventures-
He's had to front up to his lowly back benchers.

This time, he swears, the lesson has truly stuck,
This time, he hopes, with an ounce of dumb luck
Just enough fools will believe he is rightly contrite- And that's worth celebrating come Friday night. For apologies from Number 10 are ten a penny- So what's another broken promise, after so many? Lessons learned from Public School still ring true, 'If you believe a word Boris says- more fool you.' It's not as if Boris has seen a sign from on…

Focus On Your Unique Path

Dr. Austin Ejaife inspirit

“We have all been placed on this earth to discover our own path, and we will never be happy if we live someone else’s idea of life.” ~ James Van Praagh …

James is right on the money here: we will never find fulfillment in our lives if we look for it in places that are never meant for us. If we live our lives based on what others expect of us and from us, we will find ourselves lost. That is because someone else’s idea of happiness, purpose, and meaning in life, defines their authentic self, and not necessarily ours. Searching out our own paths and journeys in life is the only way to become complete and whole.
