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.

Gelooft u het getuigenis van God, zijn Zoon en zijn dienaren? God openbaart Zich als de Heilige, die de zonden niet kan verdragen en deze veroordeelt. De meeste mensen vrezen God echter niet.

In de Heilige Schrift hebben wij meerdere voorbeelden vna mensen met geloof, Abraham daarbij de voornaamste.

Jeff Carreira notes that the world reveals itself to us in a stream of sensation.

Heeft de wetenschap al ooit kunnnen bewijzen dat God niet bestaat? In welke mate wil men alle moderne wetenschappelijke inzichten in de strijd gooien en/of zijn gezond verstand gebruiken en getuigenissen in de omgeving opnemen en deze met de Woorden uit de Heilige Schrift vergelijken?
In certain religious groups there are people who say one may not read philosophers their work. Many philosophers their thought have influenced lots of people.

All human beings are created in the image of God. This makes that we are or should be, all accepting the other as being allowed to be here by God and to be co-images of God and ourselves. The Divine Creator, Jehovah, the God above all gods, did not create more than one race. Of […]

In certain Christian denominations, people are seriously thinking they are eating God when they go to communion to receive the Eucharist.

Evidently, because the Brotherhood invariably […]

A late 19th, early 20th century look at how to worship God. Today we are convinced that while sitting in the church service, we also can dedicate our prayer worthily to God. No hard and fast rule has been laid down by God as to what posture must be adopted when we approach Him in […]
Indien men zich wil aansluiten bij een Christadelphian ecclesia, kan men makkelijk door iedereen in de gemeenschap individueel begroet worden. Als de ecclesia echter samengesteld is door zeer veel mensen is zulk een persoonlijke begroeting door elk lid niet altijd zo vanzelfsprekend en werkt de dienstdoende presiderende broeder als vertegenwoordiger van elk ander lid in de gemeenschap om de rechterhand aan te bieden en het nieuwe lid welkom te heten.
Voor sommige mensen zou er de indruk kunnen bestaan dat de Broeders in Christus een strenge geloofsgemeenschap is, maar dat ligt dikwijls aan het onvoldoende kennen van onze ziens- en werkwijze, alsook aan het niet begrijpen van Bijbelse normen en waarden die wij niet alleen willen maar ook oren te volgen.
Verder gaand op de beschuldiging van de Jehovah’s Getuigen hoe dat wij tegen bepaalde wereldse gebruiken zijn, kijken wij vandaag naar lichaams- en geestesvervuilende elementen waar Broeders in christus tegen zijn.
Het lijkt ons vreemd dat het Wachttorengenootschap kritiek heeft op leden van onze broederschap die niet zouden stemmen op iemand die zich verkiesbaar stelt. Daarom kijken wij even verder naar hun redenering hier over.
De Jehovah’s Getuigen beschuldigen het christadelfianisme een gebrek aan hoop voor de doden van de mensheid te geven. Integendeel tonen wij de mensen dat er wel degelijk hoop is voor na de dood maar geven toch een waarschuwing dat dit voor de dood moet geregeld worden omdat het anders te laat is.
Vandaag kijken wij naar wat de Jehovah’s Getuigen een derde fundamentele tekortkoming van het christadelfianisme noemen, namelijk de getuigenis.
Bible prophecies do not deal only with the ancient past. They also accurately foretell events that are taking place in our day. But at the moment we focus at numerous prophecies preserved in the Hebrew Scriptures (commonly called the Old Testament) which long before the man was born told about events which would happen in his time and around him, his betrayal, humiliation, torture, execution, death, and burial. From those writings of the Old and New Testament nobody should have doubts who that man is who is called Immanuel, the son of man and Messiah, born out of the root of Jess in the tribe of king David.
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 […]
After the horrible experience, having seen how their beloved master had died on the stake, the apostles had retreated themselves. The women who had watched the impalement from some distance got the courage to see if they could not give their friend a proper burial before the high holy day. “30 Therefore, when he had […]
All the time when the by Jesus chosen disciples followed him, they had several times doubts concerning his position and were convinced he was going to save them from the Roman oppressors. They were willing to see in Jesus that promised Massiah/Moshiach or Messiah (the anointed or christou / kristos / Christ), but thought him […]
We have come to the point where the people in Jerusalem had seen that the man of flesh and blood, Jeshua ben Josef, also known as the son of man and son of God, came to his death at the wood of execution. When Jesus walked around preaching about his heavenly Father and times to […]
Matthew 27:62-66 – Guards Seal the Tomb Against an Imposter MT27:62 On the next day – after Preparation – the religious hierarchy and Pharisees assembled together before Pilate, MT27:63 saying, “Lord, we remember that plotter said when he was alive, ‘After three days I will be raised up.’ MT27:64 So, command that the grave be […]

Answers Concerning Prophecies and things future #18 Shape of Ezekiel’s Temple Prior to the work entitled “The Temple of Ezekiel’s Prophecy”, by H.

This building, or rather series […]

First of all to come to a good relationship with some one, one has to talk with that person and has to listen to what that person has to tell. God talks to the people by the way of His Word, presented to mankind by the many Bible translations, so that most people can read […]
The One Who created everything and Who gave His Word, did all He did with a purpose and out of love. The Bible teaches us that “God is love.” (1 John 4:8) Everything God does is motivated by love. Out of love created man in His image also with the intention to have a good relationship […]
In the previous writings we saw that the Divine Creator gave His Word to the world so that people could come to know Him. The Bible is a gift from God. It gives us information that we can’t find anywhere else. For example, it tells us that God created the heavens, the earth, and the […]

The man who loved the Law of the Elohim (Ps 119:97) and was known by God to be a righteous man, blessed and praised his Bo’re and was willing to do everything that Hashem wished him to do. Those wanting to fall under the promises made to Abraham should be people following in the footsteps of Abraham, having the Faith in the same God as Him.
We are given God’s Word in the Torah, to have a light of guidance and to have some good instructions to build up our lives and to help others to grow and join us on the path to the Elohim Hashem Jehovah.

Is it possible to fulfil one’s obligation for Hanukah with electric light bulbs since it does not contain oil or a wick and is not reminiscent of the Menorah lighting in the Bet Hamikdash whatsoever.

The Days of Chanukah- Days of Faith As opposed to the other holidays and festivals which were already existent since Hashem gave the Torah to the Jewish nation, the holidays of Purim and Chanukah were brought about through two wicked men, Haman and Antiochus.

De Joodse gemeenschap in België en Nederland kan niet ontsnappen aan het coronavirus, maar is er zich wel bewust van dat er een hele kleine groep is die het moeilijk heeft met de beperkende maatregelen, terwijl de meerderheid zich wel aan alle veiligheidsmaatregelen houdt, en er zelfs gebruik van maakt om te reflecteren over de avondklok ten tijde van Moshe in Egypte.
17 Tevet (1728) – Shearith Israel, the first New York synagogue, erects its first building in Lower Manhattan.

Internet gebruik en vergiffenis op de Sabbath Groot probleem in de Joodse gemeenschap over internet verbindingen voor virtuele diensten is dat een groot deel van hen geen computer gebruikt net als dat zij die dit wel hebben, deze zeker niet gebruiken op de Sabbath of sjabbos. De sjabbes is voor velen ‘heilig’, zodat zij zich […]
Het coronavirus heeft ook haar weerslag voor vele geloofsgemeenschappen. Zij die zich aan de Ene Ware God willen opdragen hebben nu soms het gevoelen dat zij hun God te kort doen doordat zij niet meer het gebod van samenkomst en gezamenlijk gebed kunnen volbrengen. Zij voelen zich ver van hun thuishaven dat onbereikbaar lijkt geworden.
Volgens de Bijbel is de mens geschapen naar het beeld van God. Allah schiep de aarde en alles erop en eromheen. In plaats van dankbaar te zijn voor wat de mens van hun Schepper ontving, twijfelden ze aan Zijn autoriteit en wilden ze net zoveel kennis en macht hebben als Hij. Daarom aten ze van […]
According to Scriptures man was created in the image of God. Allah created earth and everything on it and around it. Instead of being thankful for what man received from their Creator, they doubted His authority and wanted to have as much knowledge and power like He has. Therefore they ate from the Tree of […]
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 […]
In which way can the Bible be a book to trust?
At the beginning of our contemporary age a son of man was hailed, by some triumphantly praised as a king entering Jerusalem, by others regarded as a dangerous person undermining their power. About 2 000 years later it are still religious leaders who do not want people to come to know that Nazarene man or to accept him as the son of God and future King of this world.
Jesus told his disciples that he will return only once and that when he does, after a time of great tribulation, it will be visible to everyone and be followed by immediate and dire consequences for those unprepared and for those who were adversaries of God.
The disciples expected that Christ would “come” as King, with a royal presence, and to remove the Romans and thrown down the corrupt temple, all at the same time and soon! It was a disappointment for them it turned not out that way, but they came to understand we could have an even much better future because of what Jesus had done. Though they also became convinced of the necessity to be prepared for the time that Jesus would return and that each believer could add by his effort of preaching, to bring the time closer.
All Christians are commissioned and obligated to be evangelizers wherever they are, in that they preach the good news to all sorts of men.
