Ah, these Sundays! I wanted to write in the diary about tasting and smelling abilities while drinking wine, whiskey, cognac, plum brandy, or just vodka and how that can help you discover if you are free of this virus.
I mean the second, third, and other coming waves of virus mutations. Now is the second wave, mysteriously visiting all of us simultaneously from some cluster from somewhere disturbing our lives again and again. Fewer people than businesses are dying. Unemployment is traveling with the speed of light assisted with the projection of fear. The great Barrington Declaration calling for common sense is not mentioned in the main stream media.
Slowly even the smell will not help, so I wanted to write about it and to store it here. For the history of smelling and for the history of wine! Scripta Manent (writings remain)! Great Bela Hamvas, in his “History of wine,” at the very beginning, said, ” In the end there remain these two: God and Wine!” Please, I kindly ask all the other popular spirits to excuse me for giving the advantage to wine!
With wine given the place in the introduction, the following words will be, as it happened again to me, about the book, letter, my genuine Italian friend, and God!
In continuation of the “Quarantine Diaries and Beyond” eBook, I wrote the essay called “Believe in yourself.”
One of the inspirational quotes I used was from the book “The Power of Positive Thinking” By N.V.Peale. To make it even better, I have the book for the last three years, and just two weeks ago, I started and finished reading it. Some books are with us, patiently staying on the shelf waiting to convey the knowledge and inspire the reader. The mentioned book of N.V.Peale was one of them.
But that was just the beginning! It looks like we are awakening and, by going further and deeper, rediscovering pure love and compassion towards our fellow human beings. Our soul is cleaned and takes its rightful place in our earthly organism.
When I finished my essay “Believe in yourself,” I sent it to my Italian friend, the one I already mentioned in Quarantine diaries day 26 and in “Conversation with Italian friend” on March 22.
He came back to me with an article mentioning the open letter of former Nuncio and high-ranking Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano towards the USA president, Mr. Donald J. Trump.
The letter is dated Sunday, October 25, 2020.
Here you have a link to read it by your self.
What I would like is to take to your attention about two quotes of HE Vigano.
One is from the title “If God is for us, who can be against us”( Romans 8:31), and the other one “I can do all things with HIM who strengthens me”(Philippians 4:13)
Both of the above quotes you can find in the book of N.V.Peale in the first chapter with the same title as my previous essay, “Believe in yourself!”
Coincidence? Do not think so anymore! Clean soul full of love has other plans for us!
When you clean and reopen your soul, it will receive what the instigators of all this “Reset” do not have! Love! Love! Love! As “this world includes people” with all greatness, prevail, we will.
In the end, I need to repeat the “frog” message! Just to alert you again.
When you put the frog in the boiled water, it will jump out of it immediately! But if you put it in lukewarm water, it will swim with pleasure and will not notice that the pot is placed on fire as the warmth will gradually increase. The frog will enjoy the heat so much and will continue swimming until it has been cooked! Conformism equals just “another brick in the wall” ( Pink Floyd)!
Stay safe and think with your own brain! It helps!
