Dona Nobis Pacem


“Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are?

We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel?

You must work, we all must work, to make the world worthy of its children.”

- Pablo Picasso

Picasso should have been a writer more than an artist! That is so true and so beautiful a thought to always keep in the forefront of our minds. Thank you for sharing - L

Not to mention making the world worthy of its doggies too! :-) I love Picasso. Despite that womanizing stuff, he was a pretty cool dude, and not a bad painter either.

Hi Charlie
I think my mum is like your mum. She is making the time to read a book written by Gary Zukav that she bought in 1991 called "The Seat of the Soul". She doesn't agree with him about animals though coz he thinks animals don't have an individual soul. People forget that our intuition is linked to our soul which is our 6th sense. Some hoomans don't even believe in this. Unconditional love is of the soul. Thank you very much for caring about Beau. Mum could not keep going if she did not believe in the non-physical world. It's good you reminded people of this, my friend, Charlie.
Love from Hammer

That is a good post Charlie. I am feeling guilty because my last post was selfishly about food. You are one cool dog.
