Robert F. Kennedy, A Speech On Courage, 1966




"There are differing evils, but they are common works of man. They reflect the imperfection of human justice, the inadequacy of human compassion, our lack of sensibility toward the sufferings of our fellows. But we can perhaps remember- even if only for a time- that those who live with us are our brothers; that they share with us the same short moment in life; that they seek- as we do- nothing but the chance to live out their lives in purpose and happiness, winning what satisfaction and fulfilment they can.

Surely this bond of common faith, this bond of common goal, can begin to teach us something. Surely, we can learn, at least, to look at those around us as fellow men. And surely we can begin to work a little harder to bind up the wounds among us and to become in our hearts brothers and countrymen once again.

Our answer is to rely on youth- not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. The cruelties of obstacles of this swiftly changing planet will not yield to obsolete dogmas and outworn slogans. They cannot be moved by those who cling to a present that is already dying, who prefer the illusion of security to the excitement and danger that come with even the most peaceful progress...

Some believe there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills- against misery, against ignorance, or injustice and violence. Yet many of the world's great movements, of thought and action, have flowed from the work of a single man. A young monk began the Protestant reformation, a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth, and a young woman reclaimed the territory of France. It was a young Italian explorer who discovered the New World, and 32 year old Thomas Jefferson who proclaimed that all men are created equal. ‘Give me a place to stand,’ said Archimedes, ‘and I will move the world.’

These men moved the world, and so can we all. Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centres of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

Few are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change the world that yields most painfully to change...

Our future may lie beyond our vision, but it is not completely beyond our control. It is the shaping impulse of America that neither fate nor nature nor the irresistible tides of history, but the work of our own hands, matched to reason and principle, that will determine our destiny. There is pride in that, even arrogance, but there is also experience and truth. In any event, it is the only way we can live."

Robert F. Kennedy, in a speech made to the youth of South Africa, 1966.

Blind Faith Can Mislead ‒ A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



Blind faith can mislead

Politicians often lie

We are on our own

©   2020   M.N. Hopkins   

Note:   Inspired by thoughts as well as observations of the handling of the Corona Virus.  Politicians for the most part are front men for powerful and wealthy entities.  After crisises, the number of billionaires increase as our pension funds and social services decrease.  It is always a mismanaging and competence from Political leader covered up by many lies and misdirection.   So, as in all crises, the common folk ban together and fix the messes made by those filled  with  greed and dark determination.

I wrote this poem in the haiku style of poetry and published it for the first time on my blog today, the 27th of March, 2020.

Truthfulness, Uprightness And Honesty ‒ A Quotation by Rudolf Steiner


“Truthfulness, uprightness, and honesty are in this connection creative forces, while mendacity, deceitfulness, and dishonesty are destructive forces.”

Rudolf Steiner

Rudolf Steiner, (born February 27, 1861, Kraljević, Austria—died March 30, 1925, Dornach, Switzerland), Austrian-born spiritualist, lecturer, and founder of anthroposophy, a movement based on the notion that there is a spiritual world comprehensible to pure thought but accessible only to the highest faculties of mental knowledge.

One's Soul Is Now The Revealer Of Light ‒ A Quotation by M.N. Hopkins




One's Soul is now the revealer of Light.  None other, none outside of oneself.  A Trinity of God, Soul and Man joining together.  A strength and wisdom custom tailored to the individual, a safe and sure way, the way of all great masters, now the way of the many.

The energy that leads the way is the same.  Each feels it, each is effected by it, each manifests their own unique gift or talent.  This is the way of the true seeker unfettered by dogma,  unfettered by methods or techniques,  unfettered by the guidebooks and seminars that project false beliefs more for the profit of the presenter than for the benefit of those that attend these affairs of commerce.

Christ Said That The Inner Eye Is....The Wisdom of Peter Deunov



“Christ said that the inner eye is the sun of the human being.

If your eye is pure, you will be able to solve your problems, thanks to the light which you have. If your eye is not corrupted, it will illuminate your whole body, and you will be able to understand the meaning of life. You will be in connection with the past, the present and the future, and you will have an unbroken link with Love.

When Christ said that your body will be full of light, depending on the purity of your eye, He meant that you will have the Divine life within you, which will give you all opportunities to develop.

Always keep your inner eye, which God has deposit in your soul, open, pure and bright, in order to benefit from its warmth and light.

For at least one year, have the following thought within you: ‘I want my inner eye to be light and pure, in order that my whole body may be full of light.’ When you do this, you will gain a lot.”

Paralysed with fear

©   2020   M.N. Hopkins

Note:   I was inspired to write these nine poems  after a short conversation with a friend.   My thoughts were whether real or imaginary, the corona virus would have the same effect and just shows the creative power of the mind for either good, positive creations or the evil creations of sick, twisted minds.  I also thought of the Y2K scam of 1999 when IT companies made billions from governments and corporations preparing for this terrible event caused by zeros and ones in the programs in our computers.   One of the key players in this outright fraud and deception is now a key player in this pandemic scam.  This time Pharma will profit along with money changes, elites and those of a very dark determination..  Ponder this is you are so inclined.   I may be totally wrong, I may be totally right in my assumptions.   That is of no importance.  What is important is the weakness of wills and minds that allow such manipulations to occur in our time.  My advice if I were to give advice is to strength our bodies, minds and reconnect to the Divine from which all goodness, reason and sanity flows.

I wrote these poems in the haiku style of poetry and published them on my blog  for the first time today, the 20th of March, 2020.   I ask readers to tell me their favourite poem or version of the same  theme in the comment section below.

The Hearts Must Arise - A Quotation by M.N. Hopkins


The hearts must arise from their sleep and awaken to a new rhythm, a new beat.  The pulse of life will change when the heart is again activated and pumps not just blood for the maintenance of the life of the human body but also pumps Light for the maintenance of a sound mental and emotional life.

Solutions Ignored - Five Variations Of The Same Theme - Five Poems by M.N. Hopkins


 Version # 1

Solutions ignored

In a non-resolute world

Leaderless, leaders

©  2020   M.N. Hopkins

Version # 2 

Solutions ignored

In a non-resolute world

Negligent rulers

©  2020   M.N. Hopkins

Version # 3

Solutions ignored

In a non-resolute world

Inaction chosen

©  2020   M.N. Hopkins

Version # 4

Solutions ignored

In a non-resolute world

Gross incompetence

 ©  2020   M.N. Hopkins

Version # 5

Solutions ignored

In a non-resolute world

Corrupted rulers

©  2020   M.N. Hopkins

Note:    This poem was inspired this morning upon awakening from sleep.   The first verse came to mind, then the second verse with a little thought.  After some more thought, five different versions of the last line came to mind over time.   The inspiration was the handling of the corona virus and the quick decisions without a holistic approach.  The typical reaction to problems as after thoughts with political shows and distractions.   As usual the common man will suffer, loose freedoms and the wealthy proper through the political manipulation to push a corporate agenda to transfer tax funds into private pockets.  Money to charities and NGOs are  often scam organisations and rarely get to the people in the most need.

Everyone Has To Evolve ‒ The Wisdom Of Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov


"Everything has to evolve, even religion; but in the area of religion, more than in any other, human beings tend to believe that precepts and rites instituted centuries ago are valid for all eternity. No, it is a mistake to think so. Everything evolves, everything advances. Look how fast modern science is evolving! Yes, science evolves but religion does not. Why are scientists always making new discoveries? Because they do not believe; they doubt, and it seems that their doubts spur them on to further progress. Whereas the religious believe, but faith – when it is not alive – makes humans stagnate. Moreover, we can no longer even call this faith; it is superstition or fanaticism."

All Is Not Lost - A Quotation by M.N. Hopkins


All is not lost.  There is still hope as there is always hope within your world of Man. The Light dims more each day, yet this too will result in greater Light to enter your world in the form of future workers to reinstate the common good, which has all but been forgotten and replaced by what you may term, the common greed that has resulted in great imbalances amongst men and women.

Just Work ‒ The Wisdom Of Omraam Mikheal Aivanhov


"Do not be so concerned about what might come upon you from the outside – difficulties or advantages, losses or gains. Just work, knowing that every possibility is within you. As a result, you will become stronger, and increasingly capable of facing whatever situation arises.

You must never rely on any outward gain or success in any field, for nothing external lasts forever, nor can it ever truly belong to you. Sooner or later, it will slip from your grasp. You must simply work to become strong and rich inwardly – in your heart, mind, soul and spirit, so that everything you acquire will be yours forever. In this lies true freedom, true independence."

World Domination ‒ A Poem by M.N. Hopkins


World domination

A  dream of a few sick minds


Stopped by the Divine


©   2020    M.N. Hopkins


Note:    I wrote this poem yesterday inspired by news of the corona virus and the many proposals for draconian measures to be taken all ending up in a lessening of our freedoms while at the same time giving a few with very sick minds an excuse to increase their economic power and control through the tools of corrupt politicians, medias, financiers, academics and scientists.  The same old story that will end in the same old ways as the best made plans of narcissists and sheep go awry.     I wrote this poem in the haiku style of poetry and published it for the first time today, the 9th of March, 2020.
