‘BEYOND THE RAINBOW’ (A “FUTURE WORK” by craig lock)

imagine peace

Only when peace lives within us, will it live outside us

“Either we stayed as we were, trapped inside our fortress of paranoia, deformed by fear and greed, or we opened the door to Africa and set forth into the unknown.”
-Rian Malan (in his brilliant book ‘My Traitor’s Heart’ – page 413)

“From the depth of the valleys, in the deserts of despair, there is hope… as there is the unquenchable oasis of the human spirit… always.”

THE HOPE FOR PEACE

(or at least a more peaceful and better world)

“Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success; but rather an ability to work for something because it is good.”
   Vaclav Havel, Czech poet and former leader

For dearest mom and dad

Your spirits live on … forever

“Aim at heaven…

and you’ll have earth thrown in”

CS Lewis

“Only when we can say, ‘I am first and foremost a human being… and second a Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Christian, or Hindu, will we progress our shared humanity.”

Working, Striving towards a more Peaceful World "I WRITE, I SHARE, I DREAM!"

following on from https://craigsbooks.wordpress.com/2020/02/27/some-thoughts-from-my-old-floppy-discs/

“Only when we can say, ‘I am first and foremost a human being and second a Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Christian, or Hindu, will we progress our shared humanity. Let not our beliefs, but our shared humanity define who we really are. What we believe is not nearly as important as how we relate, interact with each other…and how we live.”
