It really is wonderful to be in this planet sometime.

Yes, having two daughters and living with many other children, I have a deep inspiration that now is the time to give them ALL our love and support so that they can express their deepest potential as human beings. And actually be able to do this requires that each of us work on our self, healing and more closer to our essence.

Children are those who know and see the truth; It is only a question of giving them space for being what they are in their essence, so that this world can really give a turn towards love and peace on Earth.
