A dream you dream alone is only a dream.
A dream you dream together is reality”.
– John Lennon
Yesterday, after some silence, the Sumer-holiday, the new academic year started with a weekend, i.e. for many giving an extra free 2 days and brought again some writings on this site.
As time goes on, we who are serious will stand out of the crowd.
Like on this site at his are different blogwriters presented, though only in a listing and not with some of their articles. In future we shall have a closer look at the presented websites there and make a selection for you to look at. As such we do hope, like Romanus to crusade for a more connected world of people willing to share the hope for a peaceful world. We do hope we’ll be able to find enough writers trying to build up an excellent world in a beautiful environment where positive thoughts are shared.
You will find ‘good will messages’; ‘messages of love’, ‘messages of kindness, solidarity, tolerance, understanding’, etc. But we also want to share poems, songs, articles, and much more all aimed at helping make the world an excellent place for all.
This weekend is a “Meet and Greet” week-end, where we give ourselves the opportunity to dream big.
Let not everything just turn out a dream. Be sure it does not have to turn out to be a dream, when you are willing to make things happen they can happen. You just have to go for it. And going for it with more than one person, more is possible.
When “Great inspirers”, people “Passionate about inspiring others” are willing to “bring out the best in themselves” and “like to write posts to inspire, or to post anything inspiring”, this with Success inspirer’s World is a place to join.

Give peace a chance to inspire many in this world of materialism and let them see that there is so much more important stuff and such a more interesting world in reach of us all.
People do have to live with themselves, which is only possible when they accept themselves. First of all they have to believe in themselves. Only when they come to see themselves as a acceptable being in the universe they can go to look further and come to see the Hand behind their own being. Only then faith can come into their life.
You have to believe you can do it and that you can pull out of yourself that of what you are dreaming of.
You have to believe in your self, whether you call it self-esteem, self-confidence, or self-assurance, it is a deep-seated belief that you have what it takes – the abilities, inner resources, talents, and skills to create your desired results.
to get anything done > your life relies on belief
all have dreams, goals and wishes > to achieve them > need to take action
Learn to live
All the materialism has brought in wrong hopes, wrong dreams. The dreams that can bring something valuable to us and those around us are often silenced by our greed to have more and to possess that what is around us.
Let us never become disappointed by dreams which brings us hopes for something far better than what this material world can offer. Let us not be badly influenced by those who are happy by all the gadgets they may acquire and all their falls dreams they want to share on social media.
Let us look for positive constructive dreams which lead us further to the right path, bringing us to a world which shall endure much longer than man’s world ever could do.
The Most High Divine Creator has prepared us a Kingdom and a guide to show us the Way. That more people may find that leader and follow him, making the path, the trail, much clearer for others also to follow, so that they can come out of the darkness of this world and enter the light of Christ.

I believe if we’re gonna really tackle racism, if we’re gonna tackle bigotry, if we’re gonna tackle homophobia, we need to attack it dead on you don’t just sit up, you know let’s give a little Aspirin right here, no we need to take the sutures, open up the problem and reach in and grab it. And since n**** is used in almost every conversation in most black neighborhoods, why is it that we don’t hear it on TV anymore? Are white people afraid of it? Did they create the word? But if this is something that we use on a daily basis, then let’s address what it really means.”
- Cal Thomas – Judge Moore is right (crescent-news.com)
When government believes it can create or take away rights, it becomes a god unto itself and potentially endangers those rights. The only way to preserve them for ourselves and our posterity is to acknowledge they come from a higher place.
The English jurist, William Blackstone, who once studied in American law schools, understood this. Blackstone was a contemporary of America’s Founders, who referred to him more than any other English or American authority. It wasn’t until the middle of the last century that the Supreme Court began repudiating Blackstone and started making law and creating rights.

Everyone has a right to their ambition. If you want to walk on the moon some day or on Mars, that is your right which you are free to achieve. Why not? Some people have already been to the moon; and they are humans like you and I.
Our problem is often selling ourselves short; and the common reason is we want to please others. We do not want others to see us as being over ambitious.
- 5 Ways to Recover from Caregiver Chaos (specialneedsparenting.net)
Usually I review Bible memory verses for the first part of my walk and listen to an audiobook after that. But that morning I grabbed a small, yellow legal pad and a marker, determined to write down everything that needed doing. That way, I figured I might be able to capture the chaos and bring order to it. And do you know what? It worked.
Have you ever conceived a dream and later on abandoned it?
Perhaps you abandoned it because you thought you could not achieve it; just to realize afterwards that it was achievable; that had you not given up, you would have achieved it?
This happens to many people, doesn’t it? They conceive great dreams but soon abandon them.
This happens when they become discouraged. Either they doubt their own ability to achieve it or someone or something convinces them that they cannot achieve it.
Many great dreams have been killed this way.
I encourage you not to fall into this trap. It will prevent you from realizing dreams that are at your reach. The Bible warns against starting to plow and looking back.
Once you have given profound thought to a dream, no matter how lofty it might be, if you think you can achieve it, take the decision to go…

Believing in yourself is the first requirement to get forwards. Having a positive attitude and willingness to dream is the second requirement to get somewhere. Every human being shall have to face difficulties. It is how he or she can cope with it which is going to influence his or her life in the positive or negative way. Going through quite a lot of struggles even can make somebody stronger, more resistant. What is important then is ‘to never give up!’
Others may consider you to be a clown, a swaggerer, a dreamer, or a loony or stupid one. Let no negative reactions stand in the way and go for what you want to achieve. Without dreams nothing can be build up.
If things would not go how you want it, you should try to adjust them so that they can work for you. No matter what you try, how it works out, how negative reactions may be, keep trying, keep going forward trying to pursuing your dream.
Whatever happens try to see the positive in it and always be ready to pursue your happiness. That is the positive lesson in our life where we should keep at.
There always have to be motivation to may the dreams work, but some kind of realism is also necessary to not fall to deep in a well. We always should be careful not pursuing our goal out of greed or lechery. Leering at something materialistic can bring us in a spiral where we do not have an eye for the human thing and spiritual matter. A person can become overtaken by the power of money by the desire to have financial gain, more than spiritual gain.The desires of the flesh can break a person instead of building him up to become a better person. We always have to be careful where we want to set our priorities in life.
Today we can find more people who love wealth and modern gadgets? Wealth has become their biggest motivation. when they are young it may be working very well, and they can love it to swim in their fulfilling dreams of material wealth. But what about their spiritual wealth? Are they interested in that also?
It is not by going to have the latest model of phone or pc tablet a person is going to find the real luck and staying happiness. Soon the phone shall be an old model and the person shall be feeling again not so happy because he has not the newest model any more.
It is good to see and to know you need your “best friends” for ever, around you, because they will be there at the more difficult times and they shall be ready to catch you when you fall down. Because each person has to grow up and learn things by falling and standing up again. And that last bit is very important. Never to get so frustrated that you do not want to get up any more. Everybody can mess up things. To start over again is what you have to dare. Do not stand still by what happened, but get up to try again and go every-time in a new adventure.
You have to keep believing in your dreams and aspirations, no matter what negative things may happen or others may say. But never forget also to be realistic and be taken in account others around you. Never go over death bodies to reach your goal and always stay honest to make it come true.
The biggest difficulty to conquer when trying to build up a financial wealthy life, shall be the ‘sharing bit’. Without willing to give also to others, without allowing others also to have part of what you have, no real happiness shall come into your life. Around the corner shall always be the material egoism and the avarice, which by some even can turn in the acquisitive and stingy. We always should be careful not to become so greedy or money-grubbing. That is not going to bring happiness, though it may be very attractive at a young age. the jealousy of others can also bring bullying with it, making you feeling so alone, being cast out. And people do need other people.
By changing yourself to fit in for others it never is going to work. A person has to stay his Own. You have to believe in yourself, accept yourself for who and what you are. Without the love for yourself you can not give the right love for the other. Also be sure that in case the others only would become your friend because you changed yourself to their way of thinking, than they would not be the right friends. Good friends are those who are willing you for what you are and respect your own personality, your real ‘I’.
Adapting to people is not the right way and shall not bring the solution. Trying to impress people is what many today try, with their gadgets, their capital gain, their way of clothing and their loose way of living. Presenting their world better than it really is. Look at so many Facebook postings which try to present ‘the would like to be’ people and would like to be ‘friends‘. Always try to stay your own self, being honest to yourself and being honest to others, respecting them, also if they do not fit your plan or dreams, or would not agree with your personality. By time they will turn by and get to know your true self and shall come to respect you too.
Without dreams, hopes and aspirations no new worlds can be build, so keep dreaming, keep going forwards, and above all always stay positive.

- Global education and the ‘American Dream’ (universityworldnews.com)
Put most simply, the ‘American Dream’ is the belief that everyone has a reasonable chance – although not a guarantee – of achieving success through means under their own control. It is the assurance that personal qualities such as hard work, frugality, honesty and self-discipline can make for a good life, however you (or I) may define that.
Poorly conceived, however, global education, like the American Dream itself, can overemphasise the pursuit of material wealth and leave learners ignorant of how systemic and structural inequalities in most, if not all, societies frustrate so many dreamers and so many of their dreams.
The recent movement by some scholars to calculate the gross domestic happiness of a country, in contrast with a simple financial measure, both expands the universe of goods constituting success and allows for cultural variety within this expanded universe.Other cogent criticisms of the American Dream focus on the socio-economic and institutional obstacles to the achievement of success by disadvantaged or disenfranchised groups, which may include women, racial, ethnic or religious minorities, the poor or their children.
From this perspective, the American Dream offers a false promise of fair and equal opportunity to achieve success by ignoring the many ways in which the social order fails to recognise and reward merit.
- What is your dream job ? (beautiful69.wordpress.com)
Most people I know have a dream. In fact, I’ve asked hundreds, if not thousands, of people about their dream. Some willingly describe it with great detail and enthusiasm.
Others are reluctant to talk about it. They seem embarrassed to say it out loud. These people have never tested their dream. They don’t know if others will laugh at them. They’re not sure if they’re aiming too high or too low. They don’t know if their dream is something they can really achieve or if they’re destined to fail.
- A Journey Toward Your Goals (robertjrgraham.blogspot.com)
Too many of us assume if we just have a larger goal in mind and work towards it then success will follow. Well, guess what?! This rarely works in practice. All of us have dreams, but to be truly effective at goal achievement we need to focus on the path toward the goal and let the ultimate dream be our motivation.
Set realistic goals. This doesn’t mean that you should not aim for the stars. However, keep a realistic state of mind, taking into account your level of talent and capabilities, as well as, your individual situation. If you presently don’t possess the talents or qualifications to reach your goal, make sure that one of your short-term goals is to acquire some of those skills so that you can reach your long-term goal.
- Sebastiano Serafini 030 – Dream a little every day – (sebastianoserafini.wordpress.com)

- Greed is Wrong, But What About Wealth Itself? (palamas.info)
Is it morally wrong to pursue wealth? The question was asked because both of my conversation partners had heard from different priests that in fact, yes, the pursuit of wealth is wrong. Christians especially, we are frequently told, should not seek to become wealthy but focus our lives on more noble goals. On the one hand I agree with this. Wealth is not an end in itself and to make becoming wealthy the sole, or even central, goal of one’s life is not compatible with a wholesome human life much less the Gospel. While granting that working to become wealthy simply for the sake of becoming wealthy is immoral, does this mean that is it morally wrong to pursue wealth? In other words, it is sinful to want—and so to work to become—wealthy?
- Virtuous egoism (profitableandmoral.com)
Egoism is virtuous because it makes possible the achievement our long-term well-being and happiness without initiating physical force on others. The moral justification of egoism is that it makes it possible for us—who don’t have automatic knowledge about the goals we should pursue and about the means to reach them—to achieve our values in the long-term: to survive and to be happy. It is a moral code for living and flourishing.
Starting from the premise that the pursuit of self-interest is moral and necessary for our well-being and happiness, Ayn Rand identified seven egoist virtues—principles that define the actions required to achieve long-term self-interest: rationality, independence, integrity, honesty, justice, productiveness, and pride. Rand and others have written much about these virtues, so here I focus only on rationality, the primary virtue on which the others rest. Rationality guides us to use reason—to adhere to reality through observation and logic—as “our only means of knowledge, our only judge of values, and our only guide to action.”
- Chasing Your Dreams (landeniv.wordpress.com)
“Go after your dream, no matter how unattainable others think it is.”
“Every morning you have two choices: continue to sleep with your dreams or wake up and chase them.”
“It’s not enough to dream your dreams. You’ve got to pursue your dreams.”
- Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams (sarahcolevaondemand.wordpress.com)
Every day you are faced with a choice and that is, do you pursue your dream with determination and zeal or do you sit and wait for that dream to materialize by itself? I believe in taking action steps every day in order to be a participant in the realization of our dreams.
- Pursuing the Guyanese dream (guyanatimesgy.com)
Hundreds of Guyanese are now in a position where it is possible for them to pursue the Guyanese dream, regardless of their socio-economic circumstances, ethnicity or political beliefs.The Guyanese dream refers to a situation in which nationals possess the ability to access equal opportunities to work and recreation. It also refers to the ability to achieve prosperity and a higher standard of living through hard work and determination.
The Guyanese dream is founded on the principle of a realistic society where there are high levels of religious, political and social tolerance. It contemplates a situation where a largely mixed, plural and diverse cultural and ethnic society can co-exist with little or no conflict.
I realized something. It came to me rather slow. I was pursuing a thing, I barely even know.
Living up to people’s expectations. Doing what others think is best. Handling a lot of limitations. Maybe this was all a test?
I must say, by all means, Realizing this is not the way. Living other peoples dreams, While mine are slowly fading away.
Missing out on opportunities. Missing my life because others take it away. Being part of all those communities. Being part of something where I have nothing to say.
Time to step up my game and live my life. Not the one other’s tell me to live. Time to step it up and go all in on my thrive. Believe me, I have a lot to give.
My motivation is enormous, My dedication is grand. Watch out for my performance, ‘Cause everything is going as planned.

Waar gaat het nu uiteindelijk om in deze discussie over ‘intelligent design’? Enerzijds zijn er bijbelgetrouwe christenen, ervan overtuigd dat God bestaat en de wereld heeft geschapen: voor hen valt daar niet aan te tornen.

De schrijvers van de boeken van het Nieuwe Testament, tonen telkens hoe Christus niet zichzelf heeft behaagd, door een hoge plaats met eer en macht onder de mensen te zoeken, maar “Zichzelf ontledigd heeft en de gestalte van een dienstknecht heeft aangenomen”; ja zelfs heeft “Hij Zich vernederd en is gehoorzaam geworden tot de dood, […]

In Scripture, all things are directed towards a man who was a servant of servants, in whom people should come to have faith. First we saw the connection with Eve and her seed, and in this article you may see the connection with Abraham.
Already in the Old Testament we find the focus on a son of man who is called the son of God, who shall be the most pure set apart (holy) servant of God who was been told about in the Garden of Eden, to be the one bruised.
Many Old Testament writers wrote about the prophet to come, about whom is spoke in the book of Moses and who shall be the special “Seed of a woman” given by God and who will bruise Satan’s head whilst his heel would be bruised with nails on the wooden stake.
Jewish and Christian literature since the time of Yeshua or Jeshua have pointed to Genesis 3:15 as the first reference to the Messiah in the Torah. Genesis 3:15 NHEBJE I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his […]

This [head-corner stone] originates with YHWH and it is an awesome [head-corner] in our eyes.’ [Psalm 118:22, […]
Matthew 21:33-41 – Parable of the Vineyard || Mark 12:1-9; Luke 20:9-16 MT21:33 “Listen to another parable: A person was a landlord. Before traveling away, he planted a vineyard, fenced it around, dug a winepress, erected a tower and then he leased it out to cultivators. MT21:34 Now when the fruit came into season the […]
Matthew 21:28-32 – Parable of Two Children MT21:28 “However, what is your view? A father had two children. Approaching the first, he said, ‘Child, go work today in the vineyard.’ MT21:29 Now, this child responded, ‘I will, Sir,’ but did not leave for the vineyard. MT21:30 The father approached the second child and requested the […]
“Jesus entered the temple courts, and, while he was teaching, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to him. “By what authority are you doing these things?” they asked. “And who gave you this authority?”” (Mt 21:23 NIV) In the previous chapters written by Matthew we came to see a Jesus who […]

(Charles Spurgeon) God is wonderful in His designs, and excellent in His workings. Believer, God overrules all things for your good. The needs-be for all that you have suffered, has been most accurately determined by God. Your course is all mapped out by your heavenly Father! Nothing will take Him…
In our life we, as a God-loving person, are best to trust God in His compassion and to merge with others who also believe in Him and want to entrust their lives to Him.
In ons leven zijn wij best als Godliefhebbende op God Zijn medeleven te vertrouwen en samen te gaan met anderen die ook in Hem geloven en hun leven aan Hem willen toevertrouwen.
Let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers.—Phil. 4:6, 7. Perhaps there have been times in our life when we felt that we were following the leadings of God’s holy spirit, but then things did not turn out the […]
Maak je verzoeken aan God bekend. Dan zal de vrede van God, die alle begrip te boven gaat, je hart en je verstand beschermen. — Fil. 4:6, 7. Misschien heb je weleens gedacht dat je de leiding van de heilige geest volgde, maar liepen de dingen anders dan je had verwacht. Je kreeg te maken met moeilijkheden […]
To build up a good relation with the Divine Creator, the Divine Master Maker Himself provided several people who should be an example for mankind to come closer to God. Because of the rebellion against their Maker, the first human beings where cast out of the Garden of Eden, but had their offspring also with […]
In this world we see lots of religious groups and can find lots of people they believe in god/God. But we can wonder in which god or God they believe. The majority seems to believe in an other god than the God of the Bible. That god of the Holy Books is a Singular Spirit […]
When we are looking for some one for having a good or close relationship with, we can assure you the best one to have a good relationship with is the Most High Divine Creator God Who made it possible for you to be here in the first place. Having a relationship with Him is a […]
When wondered about a godhead and having come to the conclusion that there must be a Divine Creator or Supreme Being that surpasses all human and animal beings, we may question if it is possible for us to have a relationship with that Higher Being. What does it take to begin a relationship with God? […]
In March 2016 we created on Weebly a website to talk about man’s relationship with God. After we had done all the placing of pages and came to the contact form and placing of a Gravatar for the replies, we were brought to WordPress where we not only could choose a Gravatar but also got […]
For ages lots of people wrote about the Most High and about the creation of our universe. Many sought solutions in a series of gods and their adventures, others could find it was only One Eternal Being Who was the Source. Many researched how it could be that all those things came into being. Scientists […]
Mankind may find the cradle of civilization in Mesopotamia which gave us a treasure of many valuable inventions, discoveries and stories. Many may say that it was here that agriculture began, but they should know that already long before that age, people tried to cultivate the earth to extract edible products from it. Several people […]

God has given the world His Word and Guidance for life, but everyone is free to follow it or not. It is not by doing good or doing bad that everything in life shall run like we would like it, or would go good or bad.
We all know that “bad” things happen to “good” people, and no spiritual building can hold by pretending otherwise. It’s simply untrue that every well-lived life leads only to outwardly positive outcomes. It’s equally untrue that difficult circumstances prove that someone strayed from the path.
Het woord “Evangelie” In het Hebreeuws Het woord in het OT is bas-har. Het wordt in de historische boeken gebruikt voor berichten uit de strijd, en in de psalmen voor het verkondigen van Gods grootheid. Bij Jesaja gaat het de betekenis krijgen van het ‘goede nieuws’ van de bevrijding van het volk uit hun ballingschap, […]
Ik ken een volgeling van Christus die veertien jaar geleden tot in de derde hemel werd weggevoerd … ik weet dat deze man … werd weggevoerd tot in het paradijs. (2 Kor. 12:2-4) Over deze mededeling van Paulus is heel wat af gefantaseerd. Er zouden drie verschillende hemelen zijn, als het ware ‘op elkaar gestapeld’. […]
In de maand van menselijk ondernemen en Omer-tellen krijgen wij nog eens de kans om over onze onzuiverheden en de nood aan zelf-verfijning na te denken. Met Pesach Sheni kan de mens nogmaals aangeven zijn band met God te willen vestigen.
Le mois de l’entreprise humaine nous donne la possibilité de penser que nous ne sommes pas purs mais les différentes étapes du service divin représentées par Pessa’h Richone (le premier Pessa’h) et Pessa’h Chéni se reflètent dans l’une des différences halakhiques (rituelles) les concernant. À Pessa’h Richone, toutes les traces de ‘hamets doivent être effacées ; à Pessa’h Chéni, bien que l’on mange de la matsa, on peut posséder du ‘hamets.
In het Joodse geloof zijn er de apart geplaatste boeken maar ook legendes welke vertellen over de man Abraham welke wij als onze aartsvader aanschouwen, omdat de elohim hem heeft uitverkoren om de vader van velen te zijn.
De Bijbelse naam Abraham betekent ‘verheven vader’. Dit was de Chaldese naam van Abraham. Toen Abram door God werd gekozen om de stamvader te worden van Gods volk, werd hij Abraham genoemd, wat ‘vader van vele volken’ betekent.
Adam mag dan wel de eerste man zijn die de wereld kent, maar voor ons geloof is de nomade wiens naam van Abram naar Abraham verandert is door God veel belangrijker.
In voorgaand en volgend bericht gaan wij dieper op die Bijbelse figuur in.
In ons geloof kijken wij gerust ook naar het begin aller tijden maar betreft ons geloof nemen wij anderen dan Adam en Eva als onze grote voorouders. Hij die voor ons de eer krijgt om onze aartsvader te zijn is Abraham.
De Chabad organisatie wil een cursus aanbieden die mensen een diep inzicht kan geven in het onderwerp van het verloop van de Joodse geschiedenis, zodat men woord gedwongen om de eigen houding in het eigen dagelijkse leven te heroverwegen.
The intention of this site was to be able to find answers to some serious questions and to know what others thought about it. But there were no answers from others and silence continued to form the fog.
Bedoeling van deze site was op enkele ernstige vragen antwoorden te kunnen vinden en te weten hoe anderen er over dachten. Maar antwoorden van anderen bleven uit en stilte bleef de mist vormen.
In this world we shall become even more confronted by people, be them politicians or church-leaders who would love to tell us than matters or different than we see it. Many of them will give the lie to make sure they would be more popular and receive more power. We must know that we shall […]
For most people life is just a big question-mark. Living this small life, earn and die is just not satisfying for them and it does not seems like the purpose of life.
In the capitalist countries money often receives the first place of importance and many forget that love for each other is so much more a valuable asset for having a better life.
Several churches want to be popular and promise their followers excellent health with a lot of wealth, as long as they contribute richly to the church.
Abundance is on the inside. It’s a feeling first, an amount second.
Often a lot of people do not know to differentiate between Christendom, Christianity, religiosity and even limit religiousness to Christians, forgetting that there are many other religious groups who have all sorts of worship.
Christianity is a love affair. Each person calling himself or herself a Christian should live a life of service to God and Jesus, by serving each other, putting the needs of others before our needs, showing to others the love Jesus gave us.
The upset of this site is to give a helping hand to find who is who in the bible and Who to follow and how to build up a life worthy of Jesus Christ.
People should know that false teachers will teach anything they believe, and not from the Bible. People also should look at the preachers their behaviour and see if they have the Holy Spirit in them, following, living according and teaching the words of the Holy Bible. Often their way of talking, using a language which is not according the way Jesus would talk shall dismantle them and should be a sign for you that they are not the right one to follow.
Peter evidently did not view himself as the rock on which Jesus would build his congregation, since he wrote at 1Pe 2:4-8 that Jesus was the long-foretold “foundation cornerstone,” chosen by God himself. Similarly, the apostle Paul referred to Jesus as the “foundation” and “the spiritual rock.” (1Co 3:11; 10:4). For every Christian or follower of Christ their church or community should have Jesus as their cornerstone and not as such one or another hierarchical religious organisation.
