Four billion people on this planet when I was born.
Seven and a half billion people nowadays.
Nine billion people is the maximum number our planet can feed –
that will be in 30 years from now on.
What then? We can’t avoid having more people.
Moving out to Mars? That is not the solution.
The Earth is the only spaceship we got.
And it is our duty to protect it.
This message goes out to everybody.
No matter if you’re rich or poor.
If we destroy our only ship,
we are going to destroy ourselves.
Something has to happen.
We need to change.
We need to wake up:
socially, mentally, ethically and environmentally.
Stop thinking only about yourself.
Stop being egoistic.
Stop thinking only about this generation.
Start living on a higher knowledge.
Start small and plant trees:
If everybody will plant and maintain at least one tree, many problems will be solved.
Use your wallet as a weapon:
Buy only green, sustainable and socially acceptable products.
Act like Paul the Apostle said it long time ago:
have a loving heart, be joyful, bring peace to each other, be patient,
be kind, be gentle and self-controlled.
Wake up – and this World will be a better place.
You will find some new pictures in my diary. For everybody who wants to have some impressions about this beautiful country I have created this New Zealand Diary to show you from time to time some pictures of the places I have visited. I hope you will enjoy it.
Oh, how foolish we were.
We believed to know what really counts in life.
Was it foolishness?
Or was it just ignorance of a young man,
who believed to be invincible and immortal?!
How much more practical it would be,
to already know what counts in young years?
How much pain would be saved?
But we need to suffer.
Pains that pierce our hearts with a knife.
‘Only the one whoever falls low, knows to value the highs’ it is said.
‘Without lows no depths’ I say.
What would I tell my ‘younger me’ right now?
‘Ask the Lord’ I would say, and let your ego on the outside.
Trust Him. He will answer your requests.
He loves you and He cares for you.
And He never leaves you alone.
What else would I tell my younger me?
Put love first. Put love in your center.
Love your family unconditionally.
Protect your family with all your heart and your soul.
Your family is God’s greatest gift.
The sun is shining.
But I can’t feel the warmth.
Longing for some kindness.
Receiving only cold.
I want to scream.
But I am not allowed to.
I want to break out.
But where to?
Voices, voices, voices.
They are so loud, so loud.
Caught in paradise.
And there is no way out.
Where is the help when you need it the most?
Feeling left outside alone.
Being dropped down just like that.
How can I trust?
Can you understand me?
There’s anybody who can?
Jesus loves us.
That is what keeps us alive.
I endure all the pain.
Cause the Lord has a plan and I will follow.
His plan is greater than you might think right now.
Keep on trusting, keep on trusting.
