Two Ladies

Hello God!

Thank You for my happy Destiny. My way is beautiful. I was born in USSR but educated in Western tradition. This rich composition allows me analyzing two different world, I suppose.

On the photo below we see two women which are on the one stage together. The stage is the formal dinner in Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna, where Khrushchev and Kennedy appeared together for the only time and in the company of their wives Nina Khrushchev and Jackie Kennedy.


For Kennedy, who had become President in the same 1961 year, it was his first meeting with his great opposite number one from the Soviet Union.

“I never met a man like this,” Kennedy told Hugh Sidey, Time magazine’s White House correspondent. “[I] talked about how a nuclear exchange would kill 70 million people in 10 minutes, and he just looked at me as if to say, ‘So what?’”

At their final meeting, Kennedy sought to improve the chilled atmosphere over Berlin. “It is up to the U.S. to decide whether there will be war or peace,” Khrushchev said. “Then, Mr. Chairman,” Kennedy responded, “there will be war. It will be a cold winter.”


At the first glimpse we see the clear contrast between the looks of the First Ladies. Jackie is fashionable and sophisticated and Nina is provincial and shapeless. But mindful view understands that the visible differences in appearance of two ladies are just the tip of the iceberg.


Jackie is 32 y.o and Nina is 61 y.o. here. Jackie’s father, John, was a wealthy stockbroker on Wall Street whose family had come from France. Nina’s father was a poor peasant from the village in Ukraine. At the age of 22 y.o. Jackie enjoyed her youth in the George Washington University. Nina in her 22 y.o. was suffering by typhoid fever and lived in the village house even without floor just ground.


Jackie and Nina were a very strong women. They both were bitterly crying when their children were lost. Jackie’s third child Patrick died after two days from the birth. Nina had buried her daughter Elena.

They both loved their husbands and they both became a widows. Kennedy was killed and Jackie became a widow at age 34. Khrushchev died of a heart attack in a hospital near his home in Moscow on 1971. Nina was a little lucky because she was 71 y.o.

Jackie died of a form of cancer of the lymphatic system. She was 64 years old. Nina died at 84 y.o.

What the complicated Destinies we have just touched!

At the first glimpse we all are different. But see attentively: for every mother her child is value, every girls dream about Prince’s love, every boys dream to become an astronaut. Our tears are the same about loss and pain. Our joys are the same about happiness in our families and peace in our countries.

Thank you for sharing with me this peaceful moment.

Pink Dream

Hello God!

Thank You for America. I love America and I know for sure I will see Her very soon. As you know I have never been in USA. But I have been in Munich’s Deutsches Museum and found there the epitome of my dream you see below!


Oh, my darling big pink dream! I love you and the place where you were born. In English language “car” is “it”. But my dream is She. She is beautiful. I feel her happy energy with Elvis Presley song inside:

La,La,La We’re caught in a trap

I can’t walk out

Because I love you too much, baby!

I am singing his “Suspicious Mind” and driving the car somewhere near California. What the sweetest dream I have!

I have heard that one of the biggest differences between Europe and U.S. is a things in the U.S. tend to be a bit larger than in the rest of the world! The size of my dream is big. Dream Big!


America Dreams Big. All my significant teachers which are leading my way are from U.S. Carlos Castaneda, Abraham Maslow, Louise Hay, Anthony Robbins, Napoleon Hill, Steve Jobs and Richard Branson are inspiring and teaching to Dream Big.

“What made America great was her ability to transform her own dream into hope for all mankind. America did not tell the millions of men and women who came from every country in the world and who – with their hands, their intelligence and their heart – built the greatest nation in the world: ‘Come, and everything will be given to you.’ She said: ‘Come, and the only limits to what you’ll be able to achieve will be your own courage and your own talent.” Nicolas Sarkozy said about U.S. I like these words and believe in.

Today is the 4th of July! I am celebrating today with you. Thank you for your company and mmm delicious barbecued chicken.

Happy Independence Day!

What If

Hello God!

Thank You for the questions we are not able to find an answer at this very moment of our personal development. My question is “What If  something had never happened?” Today I am thinking about “What If  the World War II had never happened?”

I am from Belarus. My country was suffered by World War II badly. It is hard to imagine but “in total, Belarus lost a quarter of its population in World War II including practically all its intellectual elite. About 9 200 villages and 1.2 million houses were destroyed”. Every Belorussian family has a member – participant of this war.

The portrait of Hitler in my educational background was definite and unequivocal as monster tyrant and embodiment of all possible evil. I am stumbled and dumbfounded by Hitler’s paintings I did not know about.


Before he waged war on the world, Adolf Hitler was an upcoming and unsuccessful artist. He was rejected twice by the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (1907-1908), because of his “unfitness for painting”.


After the rejections from the Academy of Fine Arts, he was recommended to study architecture. Following this recommendation, he intended to pursue architectural studies, yet he lacked the academic credentials required for architecture school.


Hitler wrote in his diary: “In a few days I myself knew that I should some day become an architect. To be sure, it was an incredibly hard road; for the studies I had neglected out of spite at the Realschule were sorely needed. One could not attend the Academy’s architectural school without having attended the building school at the Technic, and the latter required a high-school degree. I had none of all this. The fulfillment of my artistic dream seemed physically impossible.”


Hitler’s personality is complicated.  Everybody knows that he was a military tyrant and a murderer, not that he actually had great potential.


Hitler did not create all horror of the war by his own. Unfathomable myriad of factors, like the circumstances of the time, people thoughts, fears and hopes created the reality where Hitler was possible.

We are creating the reality where we are possible as individuals realizing unique potential to knit our every next moment. We have to be responsible for every thoughts and decision and always remember about Butterfly effect.

Could the professor of the Academy of Fine Art imagine the consequences of his decision to reject Hitler on the exam?

It seems I have found the answer on my question I was thinking about today. What If  the World War II had never happened? If Adolf Hitler had been attended to the Academy, if the World War II had never happened, my life was not possible, I had never had a chance to write this words and meet you.

I am grateful for this possibility to live and your being with me now. Thank you!

Royal Power

Hello God!

Thank You for our perfect antenna to receive and send a signals to the Universe. Once by the signal I had recognized my personal place of power. I am lucky to send my signal to you to empower your life and thoughts now. So we are here. We are in Linderhof, Bavaria.

This magic place is one of three castles of the King Ludvig II. We have met him in his Neuschwanstein castle already. Today we are sharing pulsating fibers of Power of this place in the moment of “now” in whole its essence. We have to be frozen for a while to feel the sharpness of our Personal Power.

The Great German philosopher Goethe says that architecture is frozen music. What’s a magic sounds we are listening now!


Renaissance architect Leon Battista Alberti said that the same characteristics that please the eye also please the ear.

Musical terms such as rhythm, texture, harmony, proportion, dynamics, and articulation refer both to architecture and to music.


Rhythm in music is patterns of sounds in relation to a beat; repetition of elements – openings, shapes, structural bays- establish regular or irregular rhythm in architecture.

Musical texture refers to layers of sounds and rhythms produced by different instruments. Architectural texture appears in different materials.


Harmony is balance of sound or composition and balance of parts together. Proportion is relationship between parts; in music it is distance between notes or intervals.

Dynamics is the quality of action in music or in a building’s facade or mass.


The French Sun-King Louis XIV was an idol for Ludwig. Linderhof was built by inspiration of Versailles.

The symbol of the sun can be found everywhere. Sun is golden. We all are the Kings and Queens of own monarchy. For Ludwig French notion of absolutism was the perfect incorporation of his ideal of a God-given monarchy with total royal power.


Our Total Royal Power, as music and architecture, demands rhythm, texture, harmony, proportion, dynamics, and articulation. Our heart’s beating is rhythm. Full accepting of life in its diversity is texture. Feeling beauty around by every cells is harmony. Keeping the balance is proportion. Moving toward dream is dynamics. Manifesting our unique ways is articulation.

Yes, I am feeling my Total Royal Power.


I was so frozen with you for a moment later that I have forgotten about my coffee. Now it is cold, and it does not matter. I am empowered now without usual dose of caffeine, because of you.


Thank You for your Power to change me and the Universe and make us better and better every moment of our heart’s beating.

Not Brook but Ocean

Hello God!

Thank You for creating music we are able to listen. I love music by Johann Sebastian Bach. “Bach” is the German word for “brook”.

“Not Brook but Ocean should be his name” said Ludvig Van Beethoven.

I am lucky because I have had a possibility to be in Leipzig and walking to St. Thomas Church where Bach worked as a cantor from 1723 until his death in 1750.

I play the piano and the first piece I begin with my morning lesson is something from “Well Tempered Clavier”. Bach gave the title to a book of preludes and fugues in all 24 major and minor keys, dated 1722, composed “for the profit and use of musical youth desirous of learning, and especially for the pastime of those already skilled in this study.”

Bach makes my mornings. Every preludes and fugues are challenge for my fingers and enigma for brain and soul. I love to think that I am playing and listening the harmony of the universe.

“First, he was an intensely spiritual man. Second, he devoted his massive talent to the God he believed graced him with it,” Rick Marschall wrote in “Johann Sebastian Bach”.

“You want to discern a personality in my music?” we can perhaps hear him asking. “Listen closer and you will find one – the Lord Jesus Christ,” Rick said.

Below Johann Sebastian Bach’s 1722 seal, used throughout his Leipzig years. It contains the letters ‘J S B’ superimposed over their mirror image.


“In 1723, Bach was appointed Cantor of the Thomasschule at Thomaskirche in Leipzig, and Director of Music in the principal churches in the town, namely the Nikolaikirche and the Paulinerkirche, the church of the University of Leipzig. This was a prestigious post in the mercantile city in the Electorate of Saxony, which he held for 27 years until his death.”


His remains are buried under a bronze epitaph near the altar.


Another notable feature of the Thomaskirche is that it contains two organs. The older one is a Romantic organ by Wilhelm Sauer, built from 1885–89. Since this organ is considered “unsuitable” for Bach’s music, a second organ was built by Gerald Woehl’s organ building company from 1999–2000. This “Bach organ” was designed to look similar to the old organ on which Bach had played in the Paulinerkirche.


A statue of Johann Sebastian Bach by the Leipzig sculptor Carl Seffner that stands next to the church was dedicated in 1908.


I am reading in “Glory and Honor” by Gregory Wilbur: “Ultimately, Bach opens a vista to the universe. After experiencing him, people feel there is meaning to life after all”, said German organist Helmunt Walcha.”

This words are true for me. Thank you for sharing this moment with me!
