Cynical Jokes

Cynical jokes are the fruit of frustration and being helpless. Because choices are made by every single man.

Trials

Sometimes we feel we have a lots of potential, all the people around can see it, but there were certain difficult situations in our lifes which enabled us to be as tall as we could be, this is many times influenced by the hard weather circumstances, but not only, it wouldn't be fair to say it's everything about the weather. Personal life also counts. But there is not only weather out there. We know that we have still very much to learn. In this case, what is more responsible, to give up and to shrink and shrink to one apple height and to dissapear (which is, in fact not possible when you've been put one time on the scene of Broadway) or to try to walk tall?
When I think of Oxford Alumni, I hear the song "If I could turn back time". People know a lot about my life, but not everything. If they would know more, they could find some more inspiration for texts, films, as some of them have already found. I was born in 1981. I'm a child of Fight and Hope. I'm a child of living with the feeling "hey man, you live in freedem, you can do whatever you want to do, but you need also to find questions, to look for another paths, not only this one you are already on". I was astonished to see, that I wasn't in the majority to ask questions. Now my questions may be shallow, I really don't know. I don't want anyone to have unpleasant situations because of me. All I can say as an excuse is that
I WAS BORN IN 1981. I was happy to see the falling wall. There are things which I cannot accept.

Globalisation

Our world is more and more unified. Being aware of it, I have an idea for a quick survey for everyone worldwide, anonymous or not, depending on the purpose. There would be raised just one question:

“Do I want to co-author the media or do I want (myself and my children) to be created by them?”

If the survey wouldn’t be anonymous, it would give us a chance to build two worlds and to put a wall between them, so the both lands could live happily and - hopefully - in peace. And if the survey would be anonymous we could at least know where do we go as humanity.

Reliability

To remain dependable: With the yesterday's sentence "It is very unjust to identify all Muslims with the terrorism." I meant the attitude, the subconscious of everyone, not from a concrete person.

I'd like to remain dependable. With the yesterday's post with the words: "It is very unjust to identify all Muslims with the terrorism" I meant the attitude of everyone, not from one concrete person.

Peace

I have just become an sms from an old good friend from Sweden, who writes, that the world peace is in a great danger, because of the recent speech of the Pope. This has given me the motivation to create my own blog, as I'm a christian, a catholic and there is nothing I long more than a real peace worldwide.

I live in Warsaw, Poland. As it is generally known, Poland is a rather monolithic country. In my family there are no people from other countries from generations. Actually, it's hard to meet people who belong to other Churches, despite Jehovah's Witnesses, just by chance. Nevertheless, in my life I have met and had the chance to have personal contact with about 3 Muslims (at a meeting about femism among Muslims and at the book fair in Warsaw - they were extremely nice women and they were also very happy to talk with Polish people), 4-5 protestants (during my studies and in Germany), some Jewish (during my studies, in the Jewish Institute, in the Jewish Theatre and during my trips), many grecocatholics in Crete, members of the ecumenic church in Berlin, with Mormons in Warsaw (on the street), with Jehovah's Witnesses (on the street, my teacher of German and English at the Gymnasium used to be Jehovah's Witnesses). I have also taken part in the equivalents of our Mass in some of the Churches. All the contacts were excellent, because there were always interest from both sides to get to know each other, really. I'd say that the religion was actually not an the issue of the conversation, because, from my point of view, religion, going to the church (and the active listening!) just helps to understand other people, to open up, to be a good and happy person and it should help to avoid separation from anyone from any reason!! The most important commandment is that one about the Love. And if you read from time to time the Bible, you'll find there plenty of concrete answers to all your question connected with that and many other.

I have the feeling, that I know too little about the Muslims, but I know enough to know that this is a religion of peace. It is very unjust to identify all Muslims with the terrorism.

I'll be glad to read your comments!
