Meaning of life

New quote from a book I am working on: 

"Today, you dont want to think about the meaning of life. 
Today, you want to live!"

ferguson - equality

What happens in Ferguson really scares me! There is so much violence and hate around the world and instead of trying to fight the hate crimes they try to fight the people who want justice! I am by far not an enemie of the police and I am glad we have police officers who ensure our safety but as everywhere, also the police has its black sheeps and it is highly disturbing that some of the police force, that should actually protect our rights, protect us, fight them by commiting an abuse of power! We are all equal, no matter what skin color, what sexuality! As long as the government and the people in charge show us that we aren't in fact equal, which is nothing but wrong, we will always live in a violent environment. How can we trust these people in charge when they protect the ones who attack us!? Not the people who simply want justice are the dangerous ones. In fact, the police who attack innocent people just to cover up their own mistake, their own guilt, is nothing but cruel and injustice! Once again, I really think we need police officers - but we need ones we can trust! We need police officers who treat us all equally! We need police officers who want to protect our rights, protect us! No more hate, no more violence! JUSTICE!

It is not the color of our skin that defines us - it is our actions!

Natural character *bilingual*

As I promised, here is another quote from the story I am writing: 

"Du möchtest die Pflanze erst pflücken und in deinem Garten gedeihen lassen, wenn du dir sicher bist, dass sie deinem Wesen entspricht!"

"You simply want to pick up the flower and let it grow in your own garden but not until you are sure, that this flower fits your nature."

Timeless *bilingual*

Another quote from my upcoming book:

Time is rare. Therefore, one should not save it. On the contrary, one should enjoy it to the fullest. 

Zeit ist etwas Kostbares. Doch darum sollte man sie nicht aufsparen, im Gegenteil, man sollte sie in ihren vollen Zügen genießen.

FlawLess *bilingual*

To define a person by its flaws is like blaming the sun for drought! You do not see the whole spectrum and miss the best parts. Be open-minded! 

- I am currently writing on a book and I just had to post this quote

Einen Menschen nur durch seine Fehler zu definieren, wäre wie die Sonne dafür verantwortlich zu machen, dass es Dürre auf der Welt gibt. Man kann die Dinge nicht immer nur aus einer Perspektive betrachten – man muss offen sein, um das gesamte Spektrum an Eindrücken wahrzunehmen. Sonst verpasst man womöglich die tolltesten Augenblicke.

- Ich schreibe im Moment an einem Buch und konnte diese Zeilen einfach nicht zurückhalten

Endloses Staunen - endless wonder

ich will doch nur die Welt bereisen,
will all die vielen Wunder sehen
will vor der Freiheitsstatur stehen
und den Eiffelturm begehen
will jeden Meter der chinesischen Mauer

ich will Abenteuer erleben
nach Freiheit streben
die Komplexität des Seins
auf morgen verschieben

verstehen heißt begreifen
wieso soll ich dann stehen
und nicht nach den Sternen greifen

wieso der Monotonie nachgeben
und nicht nach erleben streben
wieso auf andere hören
und nicht selbst Fehler begehen

Fehler zu machen heißt zu leben
Aus ihnen zu lernen, heißt das Leben zu verstehen

Ich will reisen, ich will leben
und du bist mein Kompass

und hältst mich am Leben

Knowledge - Wissen bilingual

26.03.2014 10:42 Uhr
Nicht Wissen ist der Schlüssel für Verständnis! Vielmehr müssen wir uns bewusst werden, was um uns geschieht!

Etwas zu sehen heißt nicht, dass wir es auch erkennen oder wahrnehmen. 
Etwas zu benennen heißt nicht, dass wir es auch begreifen.
Etwas zu berühren heißt nicht, dass wir es auch spüren.
Etwas zu hören bedeutet nicht, dass wir es verstehen. 

Nicht die Tatsache, dass wir etwas tun, zeugt von Können, sondern dass wir verstehen, was wir tun!
© Lara Müller/ istartdreamingnow

Knowledge is not the key to understanding. In fact we need to become aware of what is going on around us.

To see something does not mean that we recognize and notice something.
To name something dies not mean that we understand what we are saying.
To touch something does not mean that we feel it.
And to hear something does not mean that we get it!

Not the fact of doing something makes us skilled but the fact, that we understand WHAT we are doing!

"What’s done to children, they will do to society." -Menninger

It may be hard to forgive but forgiveness may be exactly what a person needs, to realize he is worth saving! To show him, that there are people who care! To show him support. (Lara Müller)

Ripped apart

Home is where the heart is! But what if my heart is ripped apart? 
What if all the pieces are so far away that I have no home anymore ?!

Together we have the power

Valentine's Day represents love and happiness <3
So I send you all big kisses and love but I also want you to know:

Why only spread love on Valentine's Day? One should always choose love over hate, acceptance over discrimination and helping each other instead of trying to be better than anyone else :)

Together we are strong - together we have the power to make the world a better and saver place for everyone! 

Happy (belated) Valentine's Day

Olympics in Russia

I want to explain, why I don't watch the Olympics this year because a lot of people tell me it is stupid not to watch it as I only punish the athlets by doing so ! I am really sorry for putting the sport aspect on the side line, but I don't feel comfortable to watch a game and by that support a country indeed that ignores basic human rights like EQUALITY!  

I do also want to make clear that I won't support the people that judge Russians in general! Cause this totally misses the point I am standing for. I want to fight hate and fight prejudice against people all ages, genders, ethnicity, sexual orientation or origin. And I can not fight hate by being hateful myself. 

So once again: I don't have any issues with Russian people, cause if I say a person is bad because of the country he was born or lives in I am not better than people who say a person is bad because he/ she is part of the LGBT community... 

I like a person because of his believes & his character & not because of his skin color & sexual orientation or home country ... !

We have to fight hate - but we can't win this fight with being hateful ourselves! 
Please keep that in mind! 

Love & Support to Russia!

Verlust/Lost *bilingual*

So I am working on a poem book and you get an exclusive look!

24. April 2011 0:43 Uhr

wer kennt das nicht?
Man fühlt sich leer und jedes Mal, wenn du denkst, du hast es überwunden, beginnt der Kreis von vorne und du fängst an, erneut zu vermissen.

Wer fühlt das nicht?
Immer und immer wieder beschleicht dich das Gefühl , verloren zu sein, vergleichbar mit einem schwarzen Loch, das dich aufsaugt und nicht mehr loslässt.

Wer fürchtet sich nicht?
Hat nicht jeder Angst davor, etwas zu verlieren, das ihm am Herzen liegt und verliert sich schließlich vor Angst in der Furcht selbst?


who doesn't know that feeling.
You feel empty and every time you think, you overcome that emptiness, the circle starts all over again and you start to miss again!

Who doesnt feel that feeling?
Over and over again this feeling tells you, to be lost, like a black hole sucking you in and never set you free again.

Who is not afraid of that feeling?
Isn't everybody afraid of losing the one thing you love which leads you into losing yourself in the frightness itself.

Who am I

"Wenn das Make-Up auf meiner Haut verwischt
Wenn das Glänzen in meinen Augen erlischt
Wenn ich spüre, wie sehr ich mein Leben vermiss
Dann bin ich nur noch ich!" 
(© Lara Müller, 8.01.2013; 18:25 Uhr) 

"The moment when my make-up vanishes off my skin,
the moment when the brightness in my eyes disappears,
the moment when I feel how much I am missing my life
is the moment when I am only myself!"
(by Lara Müller)
