Safar: Never Give Up For A Better World

Some skeptics will smirk at this, skeptically saying that they only believe in what they can see, but the noblest of things cannot be seen. You cannot see love, but…

safar[T]he Lord’s most merciful gift to mankind is the freedom to choose. This is why every person has the freedom to choose between good and evil. Since the moment of birth, people fight the two selves within, the good one and the bad one. The choice between good and evil depends on the strength of the human spirit. Let us remember that compassion, and the lack thereof, isn’t specific to classes. This is why it is important for the new millennium to nurture ideas and creativity, because creative people, guided by visions, won’t be creating for their own sake, but for the community too. Creative people realize that global warming isn’t a natural process, but a product of human greed, I wrote about it in details-  Act On Climate .

[Y]es my dear friends, ideas are worth much more than oil and gas, because visionaries can create a synergy between nature and man, instead of being an enemy to the sun and the wind, because then mankind will have a much more powerful driving force in the shape of the wind and the sun, than we have in oil and gas now. Oil and gas are monopolized by a small group of people, while the sun and wind cannot be monopolized. Just like us humans, the sun is the work of the same Creator, and thus it belongs to everyone, not just to a certain group of people. This way, there would be much less poverty in the world than there is today. (see   Blue Moon Diamond )
We should never forget those values that make us human: compassion, love, honesty, conscience and faith.. I don’t know much about victories, but I am sure of one thing, that compassion is a victory of the human spirit. Allow me to quote the great physician, religious thinker and Nobel laureate Albert Schweitzer: “I have grown more and more certain that at the bottom of our heart we all think this, and that we fail to acknowledge it because we are afraid of being laughed at by other people as sentimentalists, though partly also because we allow our best feelings to get blunted. But I vowed that I would never let my feelings get blunted, and that I would never be afraid of the reproach of sentimentalism.”
If people would wake that feeling of compassion within themselves, the suffering of others would affect them more often, and the desire to alleviate it, if not prevent it, would grow inside them. Then, the active involvement in the suffering of other beings would become the supreme life principle in everyday reasoning, feeling and the activity of individuals.

[L]et us not forget that a strong spirit is a person’s best ally in times of temptation. In the thick forest of temptation, a man without conscience is like a lamp without oil. To create values for the benefit of society makes everyone happy, including the person who creates them, lest we forget that being alone in one’s happiness is the worst of miseries. This is why it is important to promote these noble values and ethics at the elite universities, not just success at any cost in one’s career, be it politics, law, business or whatever. „Our conscience, which is a great ledger book, wherein are written all our offenses…grinds our souls with the remembrance of some precedent sins, makes us reflect upon, accuse and condemn ourselves..”— Robert Burton
Conscience is described as “divine kindness rooted in all forms of existence”. It exists in everything we look at and whenever we look at it. The touch of that source of divine kindness can be brought to everyone and lit within everyone. It exists in the corners of every mind, and it appears when we least expect it. Henry Van Dyke said: »A clean and sensitive conscience, a steady and scrupulous integrity in small things as well as large, is the most valuable of all possessions, to a nation as to an individual.”
Great dreamer and writer, Charles Dickens, once said that it’s the imagination that makes the writer, and I would add that the imagination is what creates ideas, and ideas create visionaries. The more vivid the imagination, and dreams, the greater the visions.

[T]he Internet was created thanks to visions, as well as social networks that connect people, independent electronic bookstores like Amazon who became a beacon for many a writer and poet. I believe that the world’s dictators, greedy bankers and corporations would pay in gold to make the Internet disappear, because it would make them masters of the truth. If it wasn’t for the Internet, this article would never reach the hearts of mankind. Yes, my dear friends, visions are guiding the world towards a brighter future. Thanks to Facebook, many barriers between people have been torn down. Facebook connects people of the free world. Thanks to those connections, terrible tyrants like Ghaddafi and Bashar Al-assad were overthrown, and someday it will be the turn of the crazy dictator Kim Jong-un who turned North Korea into one gigantic concentration camp (see: Between Darkness And Light).
Still, allow me to use this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to the founders of LinkedIn. Thanks to this noble visionary project, a multitude of writers and poets are linked by that angelic thread of friendship. We all know how much promotion means to writers and poets – promotion is a light in the dark, and thanks to LinkedIn, many poets (including myself), have found their brothers and sisters in poetry. If it wasn’t for LinkedIn, I would never meet other timid poetic souls like Munia Khan (a wonderful woman with an angelic soul that conceives verses in which love found its sanctuary), and other dreamers like Deborah M. Hodgetts, Clare McGlinchey, April & Ajay Matta, Ayessa Cabral, Jt Horn, Cyrus, Tatjana, Gregory Amour, Sarah… I could go on forever like this, naming one angelic writer after another, all of whom were my spiritual support when the dark fist of depression got hold of my timid heart. Is there a more precious gift than a warm and honest word? It’s irrelevant if one is surrounded by disappointment, thick fog and dark depression, if you know that somewhere out there, there are kindres spirits who shine like centennial lighthouses.
Yes, my dear unknown friends, their kind words of support prove that dreamers around the world walk the path of dreams together, leaving their traces behind in the sands of time. Some might say that it’s a paradox that people who knew each other from their childhood days may be strangers to each other, yet those who never met can still know and understand each other. But, life teaches us that this is no paradox, but rather a perfect chain of honesty, because the creator mercifully says: open yourself and my doors shall open to you. Why hide the beauty of one’s soul?

[Y]es, my dear friends, dreams, and ideas, are worth much more than oil and gas, because visionaries can create a synergy between nature and man, instead of being an enemy to the sun and the wind, because then mankind will have a much more powerful driving force in the shape of the wind and the sun, than we have in oil and gas now. Let’s not fool our self, global warming is not a natural process, it’s the result of human greed. I believe, like the bravest girl in the world, Malala, and many other dreamers, in the freedom of the individual, and because of this I also believe that no one can prohibit compassion, faith and love, all of which are things that a person either does or does not have within them. Creative people who create values towards the greater good become free visionaries, and those who keep adding to their wealth become slaves to greed. Yes, scientists shall clone the human embryo in their laboratories tomorrow, and they shall reprogram somatic cells, thus creating a human clone, but never will there be a scientist who will be able to create a soul, which provides humans with feelings, and we know that feelings give birth to compassion and love. (However, we must never forget that they are great scientists were religious. Albert Einstein was religious, the physician Sir Isaac Newton too, as well as Louis Pasteur, William Calvin, Leonardo da Vinci, Nikola Tesla… after all, immortal poets and writers like Fedor Mihailovich Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Charles Dickens, Frost, Yesenin, Whitman, Lorca… they created immortal works of art through a strong spirit and faith).

[S]ome skeptics will smirk at this, skeptically saying that they only believe in what they can see, but the noblest of things cannot be seen. You cannot see love, but we our self are the best proof that it exists. You cannot see air, but we know that it exists, because we woudn’t be able to live without it. We cannot see the wind, but we can feel it, we cannot see the warmth of the sun, but we can also feel it. This bond between nature and humans is the best proof of the Creator’s existence. (To a poet, his works aren’t just a reflection of life itself, but an entire life in the boundless invisible. Isn’t the heavenly oasis of all human emotions – the soul – invisible? I reaped: We cannot see the wind, but we can feel it, we cannot see the warmth of the sun, but we can also feel it. This bond between nature and humans is the best proof of the Creator’s existence.)
To quote Ralph Waldo Trine: “Everything exists in the invisible before it is manifested or realized in the visible. In that sense, it is true that invisible things are real, while visible ones are not. Invisible things are the cause; visible things are the consequence. Invisible things are eternal, while the visible ones change and are perishable.”
Yes, I was a skeptic too during my youth, believing only those things that can be seen with one’s eyes. Still, now that my life’s ship is sailing faster than it ever did on this ocean of temptation, I can safely say that the human soul is the sacred home to our fragile humanity.

[T]here are many religions, but there is only one overarching faith, and those who respect the religion of others is closest to faith, as are those who respect other people like they respect them self. I have learned to respect other religions like my own because, after all, they all have their roots in the one faith we all have in common. To respect the feelings of the faithful and to respect other religions means that you are tolerant and wise, because you want to learn, and what is most valuable in life, you have peace and serenity in life.
When they ask me about what patriotism means to me, I calmly answered that those who help others are the greatest patriots, and if people in different countries would think along these lines, there would be a lot less poor people, dictatorships and wars in the world.
Our tenure on this small planet we call Earth is very short, and thanks to it we have an excellent opportunity to leave behind us a world that is better than the one we came into, due to the way we decide to live.” (Sir John Templeton)
