What We Want or Need?

Often we want things we not really need. Regularly we are caught in the trap of our wants, getting frustrated not finding what we hoped for.

We know what we want
but only God knows what
we need.
Pray to give thanks
not to ask.
No ulterior motives.

Both armies pray
to win the war.
Take yourself
out of your prayers.
Seek only to learn to love,
to be in the presence
of God.

Our selfishness
is a trap.
Pray only for the
good of all
ending all prayer with
“Thy will be done.”

Moment by Moment

Too many people have their eyes closed for the small things of nature and go places without really “seeing” those places and their beauty.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The same world is very different to each one of us. We are able to see and appreciate only to the degree to which we have mastered our mind and emotions. Our work is to tune our thoughts and feelings to become so stable, and yet so flexible, that Life will reveal to us Her deeper mysteries. Wisdom is not wasted on the self-indulgent. Wisdom is the reward of the steadfast moment-by-moment discipline and perseverance of the one who aspires.” ~Ann Mortifee

Rabbi Ianki’s dog

In life we do need a laugh. today we can see lots of comedies on television, but when we see the jokes they are nearly always under the belt and many very vulgar.

Dr Roby Parrot from the comedy magazine Skyline Reports

On Skyline Reports we may  find (as a joke) Dr. Parrot who has done his medical studies in the field of psychiatry at Sorbonne, where he studied with the famous Professor Pangrue how to buy expensive and sell cheap. He was also once one of the brave defenders of Independece.

At the time of the last Oriental conflagration I served in the civic guard – Intelligent Bayonet – in the company of the Armenian slum. Heroic times {Civic guard}

His eye and mind may be very bright, him believing that

 On the first day God created the sky and the Earth. For administrative reasons he created the whole Earth in one place to be able to master it better and depends on only the Republicans, which he knew better.

god trump
According to him

Unlike religion, sex doesn’t make you feel guilty.

and

There aren’t so many rules when you have sex. {Sex and religion}

From September 2, 2017 (or did he have a false start on August the 20th 2017), this parrot is talking and letting him heard, wanting his own Dada at Morning sunset when he saw a

sad tree had a shaggy elephant who liked to smoke seaweed every morning.

sunset sunrise

The tree often told it to quiet smoking as the carbon dioxide concentration of the atmosphere increased, but the elephant did not hear it because it was deaf due to an atomic bomb exploding right next to its left ear during the secret war in the Anophel mosquito’s studio.

This morning the sun had just risen when it had already sunset.

The elephant was reatly surprised by this thig and asked the tree:

„What the hell is that sun ?”

„It’s sick of seasickness because of seaweed you smoke”, said the tree.

„That means the sun is crazy because the seaweed does not contain nicotine !”

For those who do not speak Parrotese they can go to Romania and find stories about the great spy, secret agent and world-renowned general, Florian Coldea, who leaves with a special mission to Moscow. Dr. Parrot also providing the appropriate photographs or interesting pictorial illustrations to proof the value of what he was to witness. though sometimes it might not always  go so well with his spying efforts.

Here he is trying to create a secret intelligence agency. For a while, everything went well, spying seemed a mild task for the Coldea specialist, until one morning at his door three guys called the big cabinet, with tinted glasses and stiff faces.

If you need a doctor, may we advise you first to go along Dr. Parrot. Though we want to warn you, being part of this age where so many use bad language, we also can find some ugly words, like on whenRadu C. Crahmaliuc his text “Student, acuzat de terorism după ce a deschis un geam într-un troleibuz plin cu pensionari” of a Student accused of terrorism after opening a window on a bus.

01 terorist

as the result of the attack, at least 15 people required anti-rheumatic grease rubbing and suckers on their back, the incident being among the worst in America.

SKYLINE REPORTS

Rabbi Ianki had a pedigree dog. One day he reads in a newspaper that in Paris for 5,000 dollars  the dog can be taught to talk in just one week. He immediately calls his son Moishole, gives him 5,000 dollars and sends him to Paris with the dog.

In Paris Moishole spends all the money on girls and fun in just two days. All night he did not sleep, being terrified that the Rabbi will kill him for speding the money. The next day Rabbi Ianki calls his son to learn how the dog is evolving. Moishole tells him everything’s going really well.

“How so ? Has it already started to talk ?”

“It doesn’t stop talking. By the way, Dad, are you still having sex with the youg lady secretary ?”

“Who told you that ?”

“The dog !”

“Know something ? Leave the dog at Paris and come…

Bringing words together with pictures

We are always on the look-out for those who can speak with their eyes and can bring in one moment more together than you can say with words in that one ‘still’ moment.

moorezartheadshotToday we are happy to present to you a master with pictures and words, bringing the Art of Quotation were the blogowner, Douglas, quotes Georgia O’Keeffe

“Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing.  Making your unknown known is the important thing.”

and says

In a world where artists are pressured to measure their success based on others’ expectations — be it sales, representation, publication etc., I share this remarkable statement by Georgia O’Keeffe. (It definitely speaks to me)

Not closing his eyes for what is going on in our world he writes

In 2017, because of the dramatic increase of threats to the creative and global humanity I choose to believe in, I now include quotations that intend to creatively challenge forces I find destructive.  These quotes are meant to arm you with awareness and thinking to continue being your best artist in challenging times” {About “Art of quotation”}

Wanting to bring daily art inspiration from all manner of artists, both great and unknown, his purpose is to inspire, challenge, provoke and question just what art is, why we make it, how we make it and just what it means to be an artist. He looks at this world with the knowledge that

“You only get one sunrise and one sunset a day, and you only get so many days on the planet. A good photographer does the math and doesn’t waste either.”

Having Ernst Haas in our and his mind we can find him on the net with the results of magic with the camera, not afraid to show limitations in his photography because he probably knows they are in himself and perhaps also in ourself, for what we see is what we are. So have a look at his way of opening the eyes and looking across borders, at:  http://art of quotation.wordpress.com

“The most interesting parts of the natural world are the edges, places where ocean meets land, meadow meets forest, timberline touches the heights.”

Loving your neighbour as yourself and Israel and Palestine

“Loving your neighbour as yourself.”

When Nas Daily went home this time, he was fed up with the amount of hate coming out from both sides. So he  wanted to add his take to this conflict and keep it positive while also hinting at the negative.

Nas Daily writes

Making these videos has not been easy. There has been push back from both sides, and that’s great! Is this an accurate reflection of the situation? No, it’s not. I didn’t cover the settlements, violence, attacks, etc. Nas Daily is not a news organization. I wanted to make videos of what I believe in. I don’t believe in making blame-y videos because these usually go nowhere and add nothing to the conversation. I don’t believe in Kumbaya let’s all be happy and merry kind of shit either. I wanted to strike a balance: highlight the positive and the negative without making you feel negative!

There are no multiple races. There is only the Human Race. If we only realized this, there will be no wars.
Marcus Ampe writes
More people should show there is a big difference between the lesser group of extremists and fundamentalists and those who are willing to live in a multicultural society where there is place for each other to live in peace and brotherly love.
