Freedom of choice and justice against the madness of honour killing

Hi again,

this post I had to write it, as a women, as a free women living in a free country where I will never be forced by my parents in a marriage I do not agree to. I am a free person! Free to decide for my life and my future!

I would like to talk to you about Sana Cheema, if you don’t know who she was.

A young women (26) half Italian half Pakistani, who lived most of her life in Italy, who fell in love with an Italian-Pakistani guy in Italy, but her parents forced her back in Pakistan for an arranged marriage she did not want. And there, in Pakistan ( in Gujrat in April 2018), she was murdered.

She was buried quickly without an autopsy, but then the body (exhumed) was examined by court after a case on her, and yes, she has been strangled! But now? A court has finally set free the killers for lack of proof!!!!!! Her relatives are free! We ask justice for her!!!! Her father also adimitted it!!!!!

Here the article to understand it better!

This article makes it clear that she was strangled by her father with the help of her brother. And why are they now free? Where is justice????

And also we have to stop this honour killings! A women, any adult, any person is free to decide for her/his own future!!!!! Why parents have to force their children in marriages they do not want!!!!?????? Why????? We all deserve the freedom to decide our own life by ourselves!!!!!

And killing someone in the name of honour is a shame that just shows how people have no humanity, no dignity, no respect! Killing is always wrong, and always a shame!!!!!

And it is not a matter of religion, it is a matter of HUMANITY!!!!!!!! Lost if you kill. Lost!!!!!!

We haven’t been given life by ourselves, so no one has the right to take a life away!!!!

And what is honour???? If you kill a son or a daughter or anyone you are just a murderer and a killer, who can just be blamed. Shame on killers! Shame!!!!!!!

And if not on this planet GOD will make TRUE JUSTICE!!!!!

RIP to poor Sana Cheema. Her life broken in such a young age for what? For the selfish madness of a family who cannot accept that a daughter is a person! Not an object! A person who has the right to decide for her own future and life! God sake!

Enough of this madness!!!!!! Enough!!!!!!

Freedom and equal rights for everyone!!!!!!!! True equality!

Stop this madness! Stop!

And justice for her! Her father must go to jail!!!!!!!!

Buy Sardinian milk and cheese and dairy products

Hi everyone,

today an article that is about an Italian Region very dear to me, Sardinia island. Beautiful land of traditions and seaside and landscapes …

What is happening is awful.

There is a tradition of farmers and goats and sheeps on the island, and actually the milk of Sardinian sheeps is also used to make the so famous Pecorino Romano cheese (60% of it is made with Sardinian milk).

What is happening is that the milk is being paid 60 cents of euro! Not enough to cover the costs of keeping (breeding) the sheeps, getting the milk … it is not an industry! It is a traditional hand-made job and care of generations. And in the last ten years there was a loss of 1 million sheeps. And 40% of the sheeps in Italy are grown in Sardinia.

They have started to pour milk in the streets to protest. Protests going on for days, and still the situation is not solved: they are asking the price of 0,77 euro per litre. (it was 0,85 at the beginning of 2018, now 0,66 is not enough for them to survive!).

12.000 of breedings are at risk of closure!

The government for now is just speaking as usual without anything done for real.

I am so ashamed by the present government that does not represent me at all. We are a shame in all Europe now. And our economy is getting worse and worse because of these people who do not know how to run a country and are just able to create enimies everywhere.

So what I am asking to all of you is to buy Sardinian food, order it even online or directly from the farmers, show Sardinian people that you care about them, and the traditions they are carrying on are one of the beauties of our country we must defend!

So please buy something Sardinian from the Sardinian dairy (sheep) production.

They need our support.

Thanks everyone. And even if you just raise the issue with your friends. 2019 we cannot pay 0,66 euro per litre a milk that is not a chemical industrial product but the result of hours and days and weeks of hard job and a daily care of the animals. No machines. A local, small dimensions tradition that makes the beauty and the uniqueness of that amazing land that is Sardinia island.

Please share

Thanks to you all

San Valentine is it worthy?

Hi everyone,

tomorrow is the day … yes San Valentine.

Is it worthy?

I mean is it still worthy to celebrate it?

What does it really mean?

Can a day take the place of the relationship in its whole? Can be happiness and joy and gifts concentrated just in silly recurrent dates during the years?

Is a relationship just the spark of one day?

Just the passion of a few hours? Just the joy of giving and receiving and spending happy time together only and truly one day per year?

I think that if there are not 364 days where a couple is happy, there is no point to celebrate just one day out of 365.

If there is no real care, attention, love, joy, time together, gifts, attention …

San Valentine can be true only if it is not just one day, but if it is the remembrance of all the days of the year, all life that is a true real presence in each other’s existence.

And a presence is necessary, is needed, is the true consequence of a pure feeling, love, that just wants to feel that soul near, no matter what, no matter physical distance, no matter material stuff. A closeness, natural necessity, that is being truly in love.

Souls connected, souls bound with a chain that does not need to be made, but exists by itself.

Because love is free. Love is freedom, Is a free choice. Being free to love. And living a feeling. Letting the other people know where the heart is, what matters.

We live in societies where image is more important than essence. Appeareance is more important than soul and inner self. Feelings. Pushed away, hidden, shut down.

To love is to be free to make the soul express itself. Love is being a presence, love is living when not just your only life matters, but someone else’s becomes a priority.

Love is the essence of existence. Our being here on this planet.

San Valentine should be the celebration of pure love. That magic soul connection that needs no explainations, and no approval, but the heart’s. Love is a feeling that cannot be asked or pretended. Just is.

And when two souls meet each other and find a bound, then nothing else matters. Not even a silly celebration of a day, because love is beyond space and time, is above everything.

A day will not make the difference if there is just appearance and formal celebrations. Meaningless.

On the contrary if love exists, San Valentine will not change anything, it will be just another day to remember what is a daily permanent soul condition: being in love.

So I wish you all HAPPY SAN VALENTINE DAY.

Live it not as the last one, nor as the first one, or a spot one. Live it as the day of the days. Where love is not just one day. Love is a commitment that goese beyond, a presence that is not just for one day, but always, with the souls bound and never ever apart. When being is the essence. Love is not a tag or a label to write in a card with a rose or some chocolate. Love is being in someone else’s life with no way to think of our own life without that person. Love is an added meaning to our existence.

Share love, share your feelings, be a presence and not an absence. Because every human being can survive alone, but when there is another person in our existence the meanings change, the purpose changes, and colors appear, and light shines everywhere, from within a song from the heart.

LOVE. Be happy.

All the best to you all.

Happy celebrations and when you say “I love you”, truly mean it.

Love can only be true.

Take care

 

Never Revenge, let Karma do its job

Hi everyone,

this morning a topic that might look banal but actually is not.

We are living in a world and in societies where more and more people seek revenge.

People who have been hurted or wronged have this crazy need of revenge, of getting something back, as if it could decrease the pain they feel, seeing someone else suffering.

Where is compassion?

Once a damage has been done it cannot be taken back!

So what is the point of punishing someone. Would you really feel better, feeling like “justice done”?

An eye for an eye?

Honor?

No. I am sorry but it does not work like this. If you have a little bit of heart you cannot be happy and enjoy seeing another human being suffer, not even if they did you wrong.

Leave to God the judgment. And by the way He is Endless Mercy, so …

It is so mean to wish bad luck to the others, to want revenge, to wish pain. This will not make us feel any better. Deep down how can you be happy of other people pain?

As Dalai Lama never stops advising, we all must seek compassion. And for who hurted us Karma does its job, not us.

And personally I think that the best wish is to hope they could realize the mistake they did and the pain they caused and feel consequently sorry for it. Repentance. And then forgivness, asking for forgivness and forgiving who did us wrong.

We all live and learn and make mistakes. We all must move forward. We all must forgive and apologize. And move on.

Painful but there is only one way to grow: through experiences that teach us more than hundred words.

So stop replying to anger with anger. Stop giving back hate to hate.

As Martin Luther King was saying:

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

So let us reply with love and compassion to those who hurt us. Because who hates is the one who most needs love. Who is angry is the one who most needs compassion.

To hate and hurt is pointless.

If you start filling your soul with love, love to spread to everyone, you will begin to see colors again in this world.

We are here to love each other. And the purpose in life is to love. Material stuff won’t last. Only love moves on and is immortal, as our soul that needs love to be fed.

Start with loving yourself, forgiving your mistakes, letting go, moving on from the past where no one can anymore live.

Breathe. We are alive and this is already the most beautiful gift we should be thankful for.

Let us do not waste a single day. Every day should be a new chance to love, to give, to feel. We are here for being alive for real. Following our heart and what really matters. People and not objects. Love and not material richness or power.

Stop using people and wanting things. We must do the opposite.

Respect to everyone. Never consider yourself superior to anyone. We are all alike in this planet and we will all go back to ashes, not with gold or material richnesses or any of our belongings with us.

What is material will perish. Only love will survive and remain even when we will not anyomore be on this planet.

Becuase only love is ethernal.

Seek for souls, not for bodies.

Love people in their deep inner essence, and make connections based on true feelings that could last. True friendships. True love.

Life is short. Do not waste it in crazy revenge and hate.

Make your soul free from bad energies. Fill it with love and positivity and sunshine.

Love is and will be the answer always.
