Sanity! Must be the most important for anyone, i would believe!

nice ppl who respect you for what you are
Then you must first experience the opposite, to be able to appreciate the feeling, however you only have to see a person suffering sanity, to make you realise that, they are in a living hell! but what is hell, if you have never been there! I have been there and come back after a period of 10 years, although hell must be different for everyone, just like paradise is.

Sanity must be the key word!

My 2007 wish is that all on earh suffer less, in this cruel world of unequal wealth and crime, although my perception tells me we live in a dream world of extremes, for reasons, I don't fully understand, other than learning to love and care for those, that are suffering.

In other words we live in paradise and we live in hell, which seems to indicate we are reborn, until we have learnt our lesson, to love and care for others, the murders, sex crimes, and the opposites of good are just part and parcel of the learning process, :???: me too, although something makes us different from the killers and the badness of this world. Maybe it's sanity! :)

To be honest I felt a sadness of the execution of Sadam, which indicates to me the actual extremes of a primitive civilisation and cultures fighting for survival in a highly developed social and economic structured world, controlled and manipulated by powerful Countries who are sacrificing their own people for the sake of more wealth and power, rather than alternative issues.

It's a little like turning the clock back several hundred years, and thinking this as got to be a dream, these problems have existed forever, and they never get any better, so there will always be a cause, to live in the past, and a cause to control people for more power. very sad but very real! Or do we actually live in a dream! :shock:

It is after all YOUR OWN MIND learn to control it, learn The Secret, which is a very good documentary, and one i can agree with. :cool:
