Eldorado , Land of Dreams

Can we make it reality?
Can we bear to live without money?

Can we consider jewels & gold as sand only?
Can we live without paying for anything absolutely?

Can we live without making crimes with jails empty?
Can we live sane, can we live wisely?

Can we realize that we believe in one God totally?
Can we live without meaningless wars everlastingly?

Can we build barriers to our world preventing evil corruption permanently?
Can we be ourselves these barriers preventing to fall under evil temptations drastically?

Can we love everybody freely, unconditionally?
Can we serve each other voluntary & lovingly?

Can we step in this new world made by golden pure hearts only?
Can we throw the burden of the materialistic world entirely?

Can we free ourselves from negativity?
Can we wake up & see in our hearts our divinity?

Can we seize & live our life mission finally?
Can we live our real human destiny?

Can we let our spirit rise to the level of genuine humanity?
Can you try to do this, can we walk this path hand in hand you & me?

Inspired by:
Candide by Voltaire
“..Cacambo and Candide make their way to a village, where they find children playing with emeralds, rubies, and diamonds. When the village schoolmaster calls the children, they leave the jewels on the ground. Candide tries to give the jewels to the schoolmaster, but the schoolmaster merely throws them back to the ground.

Cacambo and Candide visit the village inn, which looks like a European palace. The people inside speak Cacambo’s native language. Cacambo and Candide eat a grand meal and try to pay for it with two large gold pieces they picked up off the ground. The landlord laughs at them for trying to give him “pebbles.”

Moreover, the government maintains all inns for free. Candide believes that this is the place in the world where everything is for the best.
Cacambo and Candide go to see the village sage, a 172-year-old man. The sage explains that his people have vowed never to leave their kingdom, which is called Eldorado. High mountains surround the kingdom, so no outsiders can get in, making Eldorado safe from European conquests. They also have a God whom they thank every day for giving them what they need. No religious persecution occurs because everyone agrees about everything.
Cacambo and Candide visit the king. They embrace him according to customs explained by one of his servants, and such familiarity and equality of address with a monarch shocks them. Candide asks to see the courts and prisons and learns there are none. Rather, there are schools devoted to the sciences and philosophy..”

    This opening barrage of three contemporaneous posts, ( “Eldorado,Land of Dreams”;”Give yourself to true love”; “It’s Time” .) all bear equally the indelible hallmarks of emotional depth and maturity.They share a degree of poetic acumen and artistic precision that makes each one of the three a singular delight.The footnotes you’ve provided for ” Eldorado..” are an excellent idea and a very thoughtful addition!
