 URI proverb augutus page 001

Remain lovingly. No path for softies.


URI Europe Proverb, August 2017

One hears language of war here and there as a reaction to acts of terror worldwide. In his opinion column David Van Reybrouck pleads for other forms of resoluteness than war language. Immediately after the attacks in Norway the Prime Minister Stoltenberg pleaded frankly for "more democracy, more openness, more participation". In this climate of violence we need this connective thinking. Violence starts indeed where people allow themselves to be played off against each other and point at innocent people.

On 2-nd June 2017 we had a very interesting meeting with the Rev. Victor H. Kazanjian during his short visit to Russia. Summer is a very bad time for organizing meetings because most students are busy with their exams and those who are free try to leave Moscow, but in spite of this the audience was full of students. There were also teachers representing different Departments of our Institute of Asian and African Studies (IAAS): those of economics, history, political science, literature and linguistics. IAAS is one of the faculties of Moscow State University.

When one has to make an effort to relax one is overstressed


URI Europe Proverb, July 2017


Life is demanding and unpredictable, uncertain and complex. People are 'here' while they want to be 'there'. With their agenda in hand they run.
They do not have time for breakfast, no time for the children, no time for themselves, because they are busy, busy, busy. That is why, more often than we think, unrest grows in many relationships. People become tired.
