Love, Hope, Faith, Joy, Peace, Freedom

Love, Hope, Faith, Joy, Peace, Freedom

Children, families, colleagues and friends of all ages, cultural, educational, religious and social backgrounds usually say that they enjoy Christmas, because “it is a happy time, where people come together, they relax, they enjoy and they have Hope”, 80 year old.

“I like Christmas because there are lights and people smile”, 8 year old child.

“I live alone, I spend Christmas alone, but for me it is still a time of Peace and Hope, because Christmas is of something bigger than ourselves, it is not about people, it is about Love and Faith.” 92 year old. Many pubs in the UK offer free Christmas lunch to anyone who is alone on Christmas. No c-pass necessary in the UK.

Many report “the same terror that happened now before Christmas, where we are all terrorised again, now for 2 years with crescendo before Christmas and late summer every year, happened last year when we were not allowed to buy books or decorations, now we can’t have fireworks or get together again, and it is not about a virus or health or protection, any doctor with half an education and some experience know this, it is about human decisions to profit, to stay in the spotlight and to control, ghost stories continue, half truths that maintain drama, chaos and fear”, medical specialist, 30 years experience.

Our referrals of experts in the field, academics and medical doctors increased markedly last year before Christmas time, and the same is observed this year. Most report “it is about being unable to swallow lies and exchange freedom and autonomy and good evidence for lies, we all live in terror with our mouths shut or covered, we are told not to get involved, it is symbolic, we live in a prison with a false story that makes it ok”, GP. “It is true that there is a viral threat, a biological threat, but it is a serious threat to much less than 25% of the global population, more likely 5-10%, even before vaccines, now, due to vaccines AND ALSO due to the virus mutating as most will do, spreading easier, BUT ALSO having lost most of the power, the ‘danger’ (the usual pattern), it is now a small sniffle for most – it is so interesting how (the media, or leaders or even) doctors report half of it, they leave the most important part out – it was time long ago to stop all the tests, passes, lockdowns, self-isolations – and masks never had good evidence backing it and hurt more people than help.” Medical specialist, decades of experience

Let’s not allow our Love, Hope, Faith, Joy or Peace to be affected this year – then our Freedom is affected. We need Strength, Courage and Wisdom for this path – it is within our reach – for everyone. We see children who have experienced 10 lifetimes of losses and trauma, with enormous strength, courage and wisdom every day, who refuse to give up on Hope, Faith, Joy and Peace; who don’t give up on Love (not the romantic kind, but Love, the kind that changes the world, changes anger into forgiveness). These items, above in bold, are all connected, you don’t have the one without the other. Start with one, the rest will follow.

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms; to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” V Frankl

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven”. Milton

Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.” Tagore

“All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: Freedom, justice, honour, duty, mercy, Hope.” Winston Churchill

Love recognises no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of Hope.” Maya Angelou

Corinthians, “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the Truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, Hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.”

“Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.” Martin Luther King Jr

Courage is like Love; it must have Hope for nourishment.” Napoleon Bonaparte

Peace is Liberty in tranquility.” Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Do not let the behaviour of others destroy your inner Peace.” Dalai Lama

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner Peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” Saint Francis de Sales

Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.” Albert Einstein

“It isn’t enough to talk about Peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.” E Roosevelt

Joy lies in the fight, in the attempt, in the suffering involved, not in the victory itself.” Mahatma Gandhi

“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” Desmond Tutu

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” Mahatma Gandhi

“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.” Mahatma Gandhi

Courage isn’t having the strength to go on, it is going on when you don’t have strength.” Napoléon Bonaparte

“Never, never, never give in!” Winston S. Churchill

“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” Albert Einstein

“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true Wisdom. Mastering others is Strength; mastering yourself is true power.” Lao Tzu

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).” Mark Twain

“Any fool can know. The point is to understand.” Albert Einstein

“Children often understand and follow truth, more than adults will, because children are more fearless than adults, they have faith.” GP

“The children in my school brought this quote to me last year, when this virus was still a serious threat to more people, then to about 20% of the population, now the virus is no more than allergy symptoms for most, 95% most say, but yet, deprivation of liberty is now a thing of the past”, teacher. Benjamin Franklin “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

“Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me Truth“. Henry David Thoreau

“The man who fears no Truth has nothing to fear from lies.” Jefferson

“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” Albert Einstein

We decide, who we are today, and every day. This is how we change tomorrow.

Merry Christmas!
