.when we love, we always strive to become better than we are.
“…the world we live in will be either better or worse, depending on wheter we become better or worse.”
I wont write about politics, because there are others that can do that much better then me. But I want to acknowledge the fact that it takes a lot for us to wake up and see things for what they are. This includes myself of course.
Why do we have to be so close to the rough reality or worse be in it to realize that everything can actually also happen to ´me´? Why do we have to wait until we are about to lose our beloved once to tell them how we truly feel about them or worse, you never get the chance… It is absolutely unrealistic to live with a fear of losing people all the time, no one can or should live like that. And that’s the answer to my question, that’s how we live. We can’t acknowledge everything that happens in the world all the time, it would be too much. But we need to live in the reality as well. So how do we find a balance? Maybe we can at least become better at appreciating the people around us. And not only the people we know, just smiling at someone on the street instead of looking down at your phone. Lift your head up and look at people around you.
The feeling of being seen and accepted in our society is extremely important. If we all feel that we are accepted for the once we are it creates a safer and healthier society – country – a safer world, for all of us. Countries that haven’t understood that we are all in this together and we also have to take care of it together. Those countries will never succeed with a strong society. A society were people look after each other so hopefully one day everyone will feel truly safe and accepted for who they are. Perfection is unachievable but one should always head for the stars. If we let life happen to us we will all become victims.
”What’s the worlds greatest lie? It’s this, that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That’s the world’s greatest lie.”

Sweden showed a strong and united society in last weeks tragedy in Stockholm. We reacted and stood together and we showed true love. With the love manifestation this sunday, tens of thousands of people gathered at ´Sergels Torg´in Stockholm for a silent moment and to honor the victims after the horrible truck attack that killed 4 people and injured several. Thousands of people brought flowers to show love and to put on the police cars around the area. It was a beautiful and strong day for Sweden. People from all around the country gathered, from any background, any skin color, sexuality or religion. Everyone came together for one reason – love. It gave me goosebumps to see and I hope that my support over the web reached you all back home.
”When we strive to become better then we are, everything around us becomes better, too. Because it’s not love to be static like the desert, nor is it love to roam the world like the wind. And it’s not love to see everything from a distance, like you do. Love is the force that transforms and improves the Soul of the World. When I first reached through to it, I thought the Soul of the World was perfect. But later, I could see that it was like other aspects of creation, and had its own passions and wars. It is we who nourish the Soul of the World, and the world we live in will be either better or worse, depending on wheter we become better or worse.
And that’s where the power of love comes in.
Because when we love, we always strive to become better than we are.”
