“Hope has wings. Makes the soul fly. Sings the tune without even knowing the lyrics. And never give up. Never.”

The wine of life!

The wine of life! The finest brew there is; nourishing, strengthening, illuminating: the elixir of life. Brewed with the finest ingredients by the finest hands! A beverage of love, justice and purity, bubbling and foaming in the Will of the Almighty…….the Lord of the Vineyard and Master Brewer!
The Wine of Life! More than enough to go round, served in generous portions but, at a token price: you first drink of what you have thrown into life; what you have also served Life!
You first drink to the last dregs the, good, the bad and the ugly you have sown in life!
Happy are those who sow love, compassion, gratitude, benevolence, happiness, truthfulness and other positive values! Their good thoughts, words and deeds are rewarded with appetizing cocktails as alluring foretastes of the Wine of Life, akin to earthly sacramental wine, which is a faint reflection of the ambrosia from the of Vines of Heaven. They are sure of a portion in the Wine of Life!
Pitied are those who sow hate, strife, villainy, devious manipulation, sadness, falsehood, etc. Their sentences and fates are as ugly as their works. They are served poison because, they poisoned life! They have not really lived; only meaningless and endless cycles of passion and indulgence, of life and death (incarnations)!
They have no portion in the Wine of Life!

Live your gratitude!

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

“Never give up.
It’s like breathing—once you quit, your flame dies letting total darkness extinguish every last gasp of hope. You can’t do that. You must continue taking in even the shallowest of breaths, continue putting forth even the smallest of efforts to sustain your dreams. Don’t ever, ever, ever give up.”
