Diversity of our World


Few days ago I watched a TV program about indigenous tribes in Brazil. The show was about several tribes living in Brazil and the Brazilian government try to protect them by isolating these tribes from the civilized world.

Honestly I was shocked. Watching these men and woman living deep in the forest and don’t have any clues about us. No technology, no education no dress, nothing. They were totally naked and more than that they were so comfortable with that.

These people in jungles are living; giving birth and dieing without knowing anything about our wars, our histories, our religions. There are places in our civilized world that woman are totally covered under the veils, there are woman who felt guilty if mistakenly someone see their hair and at the same time there are these woman running, working, laughing with each other totally naked without noticing.

I always believed most of these “Must” and “Must not”, “good” and “bad”, “values” and “disvalues” are local. In one place at that time “doing this/that” is “good/bad” and exactly the same act could have totally different meaning if we were born somewhere else at different time. I always telling to my self to keep my eyes and mind open. I am trying to avoid being so fool to believe what I learn as good or bad is rigidly (100%) the same anywhere at any time.

I always thought there are few fundamental rules that are beyond the times and places. If you catch them you are good to go. Forget about all unnecessary “must” and “must not”. Through away the long list of “values” and “disvalues” society fill your mind with. Don’t let anything or anyone make you feel guilt for enjoying your beautiful life.

My list is short and simple:

Honesty, Love, kindness

Bonjour Hiva,

Wearing a burkha in the Amazonas jungle might make you elegible for the "Guiness Book of Records".

Imagine! We all bear God’s fingerprints and have within us a "Divine Compass" that shows us the way, “The True Path” regardless of time and place...
Isn’t that fascinating?
