Really Like Your Profile And Like To Know About You, And See What We Can Build Together In Terms Of Friendship And Relationship. But Before I Share Any Conversation With You, I Want You To Read And Understand From This Message And Get Back To Me If You Really Believe In It.
Do You Believe, As Food Is Needed For The Body, The Same Way Love Is Needed For The Soul. Food Strengthens The Body While Love Strengths The Soul. A Person Is Incomplete Without Love.
Love Is Not About Finding The Right Person, But Creating A Right Relationship. It’s Not About How Much Love You Have In The Beginning But How Much Love You Build Till The End.
Love Is A Noble Act Of Self-giving, Offering Trust, Faith, And Loyalty. The More You Love, The More You Lose A Part Of Yourself, Yet You Don’t Become Less Of Who You Are; You End Up Being Complete With Your Loved Ones.
If You Believe In This Word, Then Feel Free To Contact Me And Let Me Get To Know You Better.
Here Is My Email Address To Reach Me On If You Are Interested And If You Believe In Love firstname.lastname@example.org . Hope To Hear You There Soon And Tell Me More Bout Yourself.
The sting of all problems between Israeli and Palestinians lays in the Old City of Jerusalem. Her status has to be solved in such a way, that all parties fighting for control over her can agree upon.
On June 24, the ‘Big Hug’ will be hold in Jerusalem. Light workers from Israel, Palestine and from all over the world, ‘Lovers of Jerusalem’, will come together to bring warmth and energy to this city, embracing holding hands the Old City. If we bundle all our positive energies and bring these to Jerusalem, we can create peace to this exceptional place.
We are organizing the Big Hug to make the people aware –especially the Israeli and Palestinian inhabitants of Jerusalem- that there is a very shaped perspective for the city of Jerusalem as a city of peace: a new, undivided Jerusalem, as the capital of Palestine, Israel and at large.
Let go of the conflict concerning her command and dedicate the city to the Omnipresent. The Old City as a whole is His Temple. To give the walled Old City free to God, as a "Status Apart”, as an independent city, will be the most feasible way to come out the current impasse.
The Old City of Jerusalem must become an open city; a House of Prayer for all the Peoples. This perspective is written down in the Holy Books, this is the perspective we, as ‘Lovers of Jerusalem’ embrace as well as solution. But how many people does already notice this hopeful point of view?
What I saw in Jerusalem and also everywhere else where I meet Islamic and Jewish people is, that not so many persons really think about a future for Jerusalem. Most of the time, they stick with old ideas that the Old City of Jerusalem will always remain a part of Israel, or in opposite, that it will be absolutely a part of a new Palestinian state, as stolen land that has to be given back. With these visions, a future Jerusalem will be a divided city with an East Palestinian and West Israeli part, with barbed wire and checkpoints in between, like the situation of the city from 1948-1967. Or, coming closer to an agreement, people suggest -like proposed in the “Geneva Accord” in 2003- to make a complicated dividing of the Old City in a Israeli and Palestinian part. That will mean that the small alleys will be split by walls and barriers too. The idea that a future Jerusalem will become a divided city, is something that we have to prevent.
There are living about 250.000 Palestinian and 500.000 Israeli rather close together in one city. Do they want to make a separation of Jerusalem in parts or do they choose, deep in their hearts, for unity? So my best friends, it is our task to inform the whole city that there is an alternative for the Jerusalem of today.
All lovers of a united Jerusalem will come together to encircle and embrace the Old City of Jerusalem with love and devotion. We have to encourage all inhabitants of Jerusalem to join the coming Big Hug, with the idea of a New Jerusalem that might be realized with their support.
