What’s inside matters..

English: List of ingredients on Whisbih bottle.

List of ingredients on Whisbih bottle. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

As a toddler we are just small, a tiny bottle of expectation and full of hope.
We are thrown on a ruthless tough world were life is a loop for many comprising of pain, happiness but

Some may write their experiences In the blank pages of their diary which becomes more smudged by the years. From a desert island some may write their letter and put it in a bottle. Others may look at their life and see a bottle. Then it depends of what they want to see a half empty or a half full bottle.

Much too often we have the answers around us but we do not see or hear them, because we are too much focused on our own toxic bottle.

Some may never see the bottom of the bottle because their mind has gone far away and so they also not see or reach the End of the Bottom Line.

Smiles here & Smiles there

Imagine a bottle
An empty bottle
How much is it worth?
Nada, zook, naught
Yeah, it’s all the same
Now how much does
A cold drink bottle cost?
Some 50-100 bucks
A perfume bottle cost?
200-300 bucks
A beer bottle cost?
Some 1k bucks
What do we conclude?
The bottle hardly matters
The inside content matters
Similarly our body hardly matters
Our soul are the main catch
Don’t bond just looking at the bottle
You would end up getting
Nada, zook, naught
Bond with the liquid
And you will have the
Most precious people
By your side 🙂

P.S.: I had read about a similar topic somewhere, some years ago and can’t remember properly. So, its totally ain’t my idea. But, don’t we all derive relatable things from what we read and feel and hear and make our own version.

Hope you all are well and having fun and making…

Many plumes give you strong wings

We are thankful to the Flemish organisation “Bond zonder naam” that we are allowed to publish their positive notes.

Movement without a Name
is convinced that ‘values’ inspire individual and social change. They are the key to living and working together in harmony with one another.

Many plumes give you strong wings!

Every human being needs encouragement. A baby is encouraged to eat, a toddler and a child are constantly encouraged to walk, to talk and to learn. There is no need to convince any parent of this fact. Children who are encouraged will thrive, grow and improve.
 
Until children become adults.
Then something seems to change in human psychology. We stop to encourage our older children and later also our colleagues, our employees or simply our fellow human beings. As if, for whatever reason, this is not required anymore. As if grown-ups do not need this anymore. Nothing is further from the truth.

Negligence?
This kind of negligence probably finds its origin in the fact that , if we are no longer positively valued, we neglect to encourage others, while carrying this need inside us since childhood.
The attentive spectator will however see that we are all constantly waiting for encouragement, … a pat on the back!

Bond Zonder Naam = Movement without a Name

Give people a plume and they get wings.
This was the proverb that MWN published some years ago. Many of the readers and members, reacted to this. Why?
Because people recognized in these ‘winged’ words, meant as a pun, their need to receive  a plume… or  to give one. Toddler or child, worker or leader, they all need that pat on the back. Only when acknowledged do people get confirmation for what they are doing. People want to hear and feel that they are appreciated for what they are trying to realise, often with a lot of dedication and effort.

And give people many plumes,  then they get strong wings.

  • Face of Flanders (flanderstoday.eu)
    Phil Bosmans Father Phil Bosmans, the co-founder and face of the Bond Zonder Naam (Union Without a Name), has died in hospital in Mortsel, near Antwerp, from complications of bronchitis, at the age of 89. Father Bosmans had long suffered the after-effects of a stroke in 1994, and spent his last years living in a convent in nearby Kontich.
  • “One of the best days of my life”. (René Sperling, Dutch fisher) (through-the-gaps.co.uk)
    A day of fishing in an exchange program. René (Dutch fisher) said that at the kitchen table of Dale (Canadian fisher) after a day of lobster fishing in the Bay of Fundy. René normally fishes for plaice and sole in the North Sea. The day of lobster fishing and the discussions with Dale had opened his eyes to another way of fishing – of life, in fact – which had inspired him. He confessed at the same kitchen table that he had texted his father that he ‘was born on the wrong side of the ocean’. The impact of ‘another way of fishing’ would have been much less would he have read an article in a magazine about lobster fishing in Canada. As Kunzi, a Chinese Confucian scholar, so nicely expressed centuries ago:

    “What I hear I forget,
    what I see I remember,
    what I do I understand.”

    (Xunzi, Chinese Confucian scholar)
  • Phil Bosmans and the Bond Zonder Naam (Union Without a Name): Movement Without a Name (fromguestwriters.wordpress.com)
    For most people in Flanders Bosmans was bestknown as the source of countless uplifting and inspiring aphorisms, later collected into books with titles like Best Wishes and Happy Together, which became best sellers in Flanders, the Netherlands and Germany. His collections were translated into 26 languages and sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. As a child I grew up with his writings, having each new proverb read and discussed at dinner table and put on the cupboard good in view for everyone to be remembered. ‘Menslief, ik hou van je’ was really a best-seller for our generation, inspiring us to spread the agape love.
