|WEKELIJKS COMMENTAAR OP MAATSCHAPPIJ|

Hieronder vindt U een samenvatting van de onderwerpen van mijn website in de Nederlandse en soms ook in de Engelse taal.
Man and the CosmosOp deze paginas wil ik U graag voor mij belangrijke spirituele en culturele aspecten van het leven laten zien, zoals de zo beroemde kwatrijnen The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam (nieuwe vertaling in het Nederlands) - Astrologie (belangrijke wetenschap om jezelf en anderen te leren kennen en om te zien welke kant het leven op aarde opgaat en hoe dat jou kan be´nvloeden) - Miriam, actrice met verstandelijke handicap - Dutch Poems, gedichten van Ruth van Rossum - Books I liked (een lijst van mijn meest geliefde 100 boeken) - Sayings (gezegden waar we misschien iets van kunnen leren of die interessant zijn), en een regelmatig aangevulde KOLOM-pagina Weblog in het Nederlands. Sommige of misschien wel alle onderwerpen kunnen U misschien op nieuwe ideeen brengen.
Clinging to a one sided point of view of life may lead to limitation and so to fundamentalism and extremism, whether in politics, religion or science. As one Spanish philosopher said: one can look at the world through one's own window only, but one will see much more by looking through the windows of others as well.
Ik begon deze website 19 Februari 2003, mijn 75th geboortedag. En vanaf die tijd worden pagina's zeer regelmatig aangevuld en ook nieuwe pagina's toegevoegd.

OMAR KHAYYAM - THE RUBAIYAT
new translations in English and Dutch
nieuwe vertalingen in Nederlands en Engels
Almost all translations of the Rubaiyat, the collection of the famous quatrains of the Persian poet Omar Khayyam, have been based on a first and well known English translation (or rather rendition), which in my opinion has completely distorted Omar Khayyam's original thoughts and attitude of life. Consequently few people have had the chance to get to know the original ideas and poems. The translations I offer to you in English and Dutch are based on a French translation (see links) from the Persian that really goes to the bottom of what this great Persian philosopher wanted to say and what he has to offer us today. The wisdom of the Rubaiyat, this milestone in world literature and philosophy, is as valid today as it was at the time the quatains were created and I strongly suggest you to get acquainted with the Ruaiyat.

What can astrology mean to you? A number of things; first of all, a consultation with a competent astrologer will bring you more self knowledge and will show you more about your character and "tools" in life, about your future, finances, relationships, how best to react to events. It can help you to take most advantage of your "good" times and how best to act at your "more difficult" periods. And it can explain to you why certain people often will react to you in a certain way, why certain events may repeat itself until you take the right action.
Astrology can also predict world events, trends of the economy or the weather. These are called mundane or weather astrology.
Or elect (choose and suggest) a favorable date for starting something new (for instance a marriage, a company) or for having an operation, changing jobs, etc., which is called election astrology.
Another branch is Horary Astrology, a special system with very exact and clear rules, where questions asked can be replied to. Such questions can be: I lost my passport and have to fly day after tomorrow - where can it be?; My husband has left me - will he come back?, etc. etc.
On the astrology page also more is said about consultations, lessons, birth and transit text programs and software and there is a special page with articles about astrology.

A mental handicap, caused by one extra chromosome, but which does not prevent those affected to develop artistic skills, such as becoming an actress in a famous Dutch theater group (Miriam), a musician, a painter or to work in a daycare center for small children or to develop other skills or to just bring some warmth to people they meet. But at the same time these are people that always need to be taken care of.
