21st of March world-wide day against RACISM

21st of March

Hi everyone.

Why today?

Today is the international day AGAINST RACISM. Yes. Sadly 2019 and we still have to deal with racism.

Rosa Parker did not live in vain. Martin Luther King had a dream that still is not reality, because still today people discriminate because of the color of the skin. Such a shame!

And people still go on speaking about races! How comes! Even Luca Cavalli Sforza, scientifically proved that it is impossible and very wrong also from the scientific point of view to speak about races in plural. There is only ONE HUMAN RACE, only one. We all come from the same group, we descend all from same anchestors. And even in the DNA we are all alike. We are all big mixtures.

So sad.

And as a consquence of this racism we face terrorist events like the one in New Zealand where 50 innocent people lost their lives because of a crazy white supremacist terrorist!

We are all one big family in this planet, called humanity!

And it is such a shame that people hide behind religion to justify killings.

All religions speak about love and peace. Terrorist have no religion! No one is allowed to kill in the name of a faith! Because all religions say it very clearly: killing is a crime, a crime against humanity!

5 32

And I love the responsa #Jacinda #Arden gave as New Zealand Prime Minister.

We do not even have to pronounce the name of the terrorists. They must not become famous, as they would like to be. Who we must remember name by name are the victims. Children, innocent lives taken in the name of what? Madness.

As Martin Luther King was saying, we must all learn to live as brothers, as we are, or we will all perish as fools.

So the message today is to stop discriminating: we are all equal!

All the same in dignity and respect we must give and get!

No one should consider himself superior! There is no superior religion. No right and wrong religion. No one is pure and the others impure. We are ALL EQUAL!

True equality!

Stop judging! Each person is doing his personal pathway of growth. And faith is something that cannot be forced or imposed.

Faith should just be shown in our life as an example: we must be good people.

We will all be judged in the end about the love we had given. Nothing else matters. Nor the money, nor the power, nor the cars or the jewels.

Love.

And today is also the international day of poetry.

And not just this, today our brothers in India, and not just in India, celebrate the festivity of HOLI. The festivity of colors!

So happy Holi to everyone celebrating it!

Life is beautiful because of its colors.

And we all have the right to live and shine in this world. Same rights. Same dignity. Same respect!

And remember all, life is short: we must live it in the name of love. Nothing else matters!

Stop chasing material things.

Start giving. Because true happiness comes from giving.

Today give a smile, give your positive energy and vibes to the planet.

We must start making a better world with ourselves.

Put away all negativity and anger. Forgivness. Start anew with a fresh new hope, that if we all spread the light we can fight this darkness of racism and discriminations and hate!

A big hug to you all.

Melt your heart. Do not keep it closed and hardened.

Open it! Let the light and beauty of love come in. Forgive who hurts you. Love must be stronger than hate. No revenge. Love. Love and love only.

Every moment that goes away is time that will never come back. Life is so short.

Do not waste your hours in anger. Forgive. Forget. Build bonds of love. With everyone and especially those who hate who are the ones who need love the most. Remind them that only in love we can find true peace. Only loving we can be truly happy and give a real meaning to our existence.

And I am so ashamed about my current government here in Italy. Racist. Crazy.

Please spread messages worldwide. Salvini is the one who must go home, not the poor immigrants who arrive here escaping from war and hunger!

And we have European elections in May. Today we are all with European flags.

Because we must stay in Europe. And our Europe is not the Europe of Orban, is nto the Europe that Putin dreams to control. Is the Europe of rights and freedom. Is the Europe of true democracy where journalists are not put in jail because of what they say and because they speak the truth. Is the Europe where a couple where two men love each other has the right of holding hands and being together in a marriage. Rainbow families exist. And not like in Russian repressions and killings in Cecenia …

Europe is and should be the home for human rights for all. Because there should be no discriminations and free true democracy ruling each country. Not dictatorships run by power and corruptions and mafia.

So please we all must stop together these far right extremists and movements who want to go agains women rights, against human rights, against the environment and the planet.

The world is our home.

We all must stand to make it a better place in the name of love that must unite us, and not separate us. Unite us and not discirminate.

All together, no matter the color of the skin, the sex or the sexual orientation, the faith.

WE ARE ALL EQUAL.

And we must start building a better place to live from today. Today we must start a big fight against this increasing racism, homophobia, Islamophobia, xenophobia….

Love. Peace.

WE ARE JUST ONE

And even in our little realities we must put in practice this true equality, every day.

We must be the change we would like to see in the world.

Now!

Life is now!

 

Stay strong in the name of LOVE

A big hug to all

Take care

EQUALITY

I apologize for my absence here, but you know what is the political situation now in Italy: a shame. And also because of this I felt the need to write you now this post.

I have a question for everyone: WHAT IS REAL EQUALITY?

The world still needs to truly know and put in practice this word for real worldwide.

Because there is no real democracy if there is no real equality. And what is real equality? It is the real equality of each person in front of the law. The law the same for everyone with no discriminations man or women, gay or transgender, Muslim, Catholic, Jewish … No discriminations at all, of any kind.

We all should be equal in front of the law as it is stated for instance in our Constitution, with no discrimination of religion, sex, sexual orientation, color of the skin …

But unfortunately we are facing two different realities on the planet.

Here in Italy, where these principles are stated but sometimes not applied and put in practice by people. We are facing an horrific increase of crimes with racial involvements. When the only race for everyone is human race, but some people, due also to our new government fear campaign, are now not respecting this basic principle of real equality of human beings. So some people have been assaulted, and we had also death episodes in the past, just because of the color of the skin or ethnicity. The scandal raised also in Europe watching our country going more and more extremist and far right in decisions, also not to receive the boats with immigrants that were risking their lives in the sea … And we are responsible of so many lives lost in the Mediterrenean if we could have been able not to give this immigrations in the hands of the mafia, but creating real human corridors, for people to come legally here and have the assistance they deserve because they are running away from war, persecution, starvation … The solution would never be just to send these people back because migrations have always been part of human history and cannot be stopped.

And the second reality I am talking about is in those places on earth where real equality is not respected by the states themselves and by their laws. Where because of religion discriminations people are not given jobs, where because women they are not paid the same as men, where because of sexual orientation people are discriminated, and even jailed or killed in some states of the planet.

I mean where is real equality?

Does it matter if a person has a different skin color, or worships a different religion, or falls in love with another human being maybe of the same sex?

Does this influence laws or how people are or should be treated?

Yes. Unfortunately people in 2018 worldwide are still discriminated for the color of their skin, for their religion, for their sexual orientation.

With no respect for real equality.

It is so sad. And the fault of all this?

Who encourages discriminations and hate, and mainly the lack of culture and education.

Yes, because studying the world history we would discover that there is no elected people, everyone is the same to one another because we all descend from the same ancestors coming back from what was before one single continent.

We would discover that Jesus had dark skin.

We would have discovered omosexuality has always existed, in all society and you cannot stop what is not a personal choice but a peculiarity of the person, not a free choice, but a way of being. And actually it exists also in nature in the natural life in the animals world.

Also animals, if you see them, they attack when they feel in danger. Human beings are the only ones who are able of evil behaviors just for the sake of it. So for no reason discriminations and attacks to who is different just because of differences, and not even because of real dangers.

People think of immigrations as invasions: they are not. Even states are conventions. Borders are a human creation. But everyone is building walls starting from their inner soul.

Why in 2018 the world is not able to have people living in peace together? Money and power.

And above all, why we are not able to live in real equality in all laws and relationships?

The answer is always the same: money, power. There are so many interests in these behaviors.

When a population is in economical difficulities, it is easier to find a target, an enemy to be accused of all disgraces. Like it was for the Jewish in the Second World War. They were also rich, and they were just an obstacle for more money and more power in the minds of all those sick people who got involved in one of the biggest shames of the planet history.

So fear. I guess fear is the reason why people are not able to accept and put in practice real equality principles. Weakness. Not enough self esteem to accept confrontations.

But the real strenght is in the peace of mind of being themselves. Thinking with their own head. Being free in the soul even before than in the body.

But it is easier for all dictatorships to controll the masses with just orders, they do not have to think with their own mind. Keeping people obiedient because of fear so that they will never complain or try to change things.

Making people fighting with each other not to see bigger issues above or aroud them. It is always a distraction.

When in the world people will start to realize that is not a matter of a war between people who are right and people who are wrong, and there is no necessity to change anyone because we all should be accepted for who we are. Confrontations, opinions should be free. People are afraid of opinions because maybe they can make people realize things from different point of view. And people maybe can change their opinions.

Only God is perfect. We are human, and no one can say to be perfect or to have the real Truth about everything.

And when people will stop to feel superior to the others or just right and the others wrong. When we will put aside judgments. Then we will be truly able to start a real genuine peaceful cohexistence where we can all learn and enrich ourselves from each other.

The world is beautiful because of its variety. Colors. We cannot put people into boxes to define them. Each individual is unique and in its uniqueness needs to be respected and should always have the same rights and duties as all the others.

Let’s make this planet a better world.

Let’s stop the judgment and the sentences. People should be free to be themselves, always. And real justice is when people are really never ever discriminated or treated differently: man or women, gay or straight, Muslim or Jewish or whatever …

People are not a short list of labels. We are human beings, each of us in evolution.

We grow, we change, we think, we change our opinions, we learn.

But this is possible only if we listen, if we try to understand what is different from us, we try to think things from different points of view, we ask questions.

Cogito ergo sum. Only because of our thinking we are. Not animals, not passive, but alive with a soul that seeks nourishment in the beauties of the planet and in everyone who crosses our path or has left messages to the world.

We have not been made to be alone. And the planet is a sphere with no corners.

Martin Luther King was saying that if we do not learn to live like brothers, we will all perish like fools. It is so true, in the madness of all wars and all discriminations people are facing for all possible reasons.

Let’s start to consider ourselves for real all brothers, with no better or worse, with no right or wrong, just differences.

Respect for everyone. Everyone is a person who deserves respect. We all deserve shaken hands and a real hug. Because we are all one and only one big family called Planet earth.

All the best to everyone and please also here in Italy we need now a help to fight these racists xenophobic, omophobic, islamophobic and all the phobics of the world, to fight them back with the simplicity of the message of the pure true love for each other and every human being on earth, with the principle, that should not remain just a principle but the essence of each society, of true equality.

 

See you next

Thanks for reading me

Take care you all

All begins with the mirror

Ok.

We have to start somewhere!

So … here we are!

A first post about our own fashion … our wardrobe!

foto-intera-primavera-2016

We open the door of our wardrobe and we just stand in front of its mirror … never looking as we would like to.

No panic!

Let’s start from a first important concept about fashion: it has to give colors to our day!

There have been lots of studies about personal mood and the color of the garments we decide to wear. So first important rule in the morning: always follow your guts!

If you feel like wearing a specific color, just do it! There is a reason behind it.

If we feel determinate a vivid color could be our cup of tea, like red that is not just the color of love and passion but also of strength, energy … showing up …

If you are looking for a sort of balance you will maybe find yourself in the mood of wearing something green, or blue that also communicates calmness, and it is an anti-stress color.

Sophisticated in purple. More ground bound with brown color.

Black always makes us look slimmer, but also is a color with authority and respect demand.

So just follow your mood! You have to start your day feeling comfortable in what you are wearing. Being able to forget about it when busy, so being at ease, not feeling overlooked or judged.

By the way there will always be people watching us, and judging, so let’s stop caring about it!

If we are confident with our look, why should we care about what other people would say?

Let’s stop living for the judgement of the others. Let’s be just ourselves. Being comfortable with us and our look. No one else matters. Ourselves first, in a good way.

Because if we do not love ourselves first, how can we be able to love the others?

So let’s move on. Dress up. Go out in the world and don’t be afraid of being who you are!

We have to remind us that we are beautiful. And our own beauty doesn’t need to be compared with anyone else’s, because it is just ours.

And if we are relaxed and in peace with ourselves, our sparkling eyes will make our soul shine brightly in any outfit.

So no worries.

Beauty doesn’t have to be copying anyone. But being ourselves!

Let’s make it ours. And let’s make our own fashion: ours!

 

Thanks for reading this very first post.

Going more into fashion with the following ones …

Keep following me!
