what is god for you?
mig. in the video you were asked what god is for you. is there something you wish to add?
bl. a higher power, something greater than myself. my higher power and it looks after me a lot in hard times and in good times too. god for me is that power of something greater than ourselves.
mig. is the word god controversial for you? if yes why?
bl. no, not really because everyone has their own god. maybe some people don't have a god, but god for people is just to represent that higher power whatever it looks like, whatever their own god looks like.
mig. do you think of religion when you hear the word god? if yes, why?
bl. no, no i don't.
mig. do you believe everything happens for a reason, or are we the reason why things happen?
bl. i do believe that everything happens for a reason. i believe that things happen because of the actions that we take. however i also believe that we do not have control over our circumstances, we only have control over our own actions and what we can do in those times.
mig. define love. what does love mean for you?
bl. love is something really beautiful and warm and luscious, love is when you connect with someone or something, love is unconditional and has no judgement. love is beautiful.
mig. do you think love is something all life forms share?
bl. yes. i believe all life forms share love and love for each other. when you look at a dog and it looks at you with those eyes and that connection, it also has love for you, it is not the same as the love that you have for a human being but it can be also that same love you have for a child or for an untainted love.
mig. what in your opinion can make a relationship last a whole lifetime?
bl. compromise, commitment, temperament and inter-dependency.
mig. what have you learned about life so far?
bl. i have learned that if you want something you can do it or you can have it, and you just have to take actions, and i also feel like we have no control over what happens to us, but we have control over our actions, i feel that strongly about life, i feel like i am often like a leaf that is blowing in the wind, but that leaf has purpose.
mig. how would you describe us/humanity today?
bl. i think humanity is changing in the world that we are living in today. i feel that as the same time that people are becoming more inhumane people are becoming more human. i feel that there is a change in the world that we live in today, people are becoming more human.but there are also people that are going in the opposite direction, and that is because of the constant flow of life, the only thing that is for sure in life is change, constant change, this room has changed from having me in it, i have changed from being here, and you guys have hopefully changed from having this experience too…so i guess there is hope.
