Krishnamurti

krishnamurti said that listening is one of the highest, one of the greatest arts in life. He said, “Listening is an art not easily come by, but in it there is beauty and great understanding. We listen with the various depths of our being, but our listening is always with a preconception or from a particular point of view. We do not listen simply; there is always the intervening screen of our own thoughts, conclusions, and prejudices. To listen there must be an inward quietness, a freedom from the strain of acquiring, a relaxed attention. This alert yet passive state is able to hear what is beyond the verbal conclusion. Words confuse; they are only the outward means of communication; but to commune beyond the noise of words, there must be in listening, an alert passivity. Those who love may listen; but it is extremely rare to find a listener. Most of us are after results, achieving goals; we are forever overcoming and conquering, and so there is no listening. It is only in listening that one hears the song of the words.”

The pure and simple objective of The Jump Party is that we the adults
will start truly to listen and pay full attention to the children and teenagers.
This is their world, and we must do all in our power to make this world a beautiful place for them to feel safe in and to enjoy for the rest of their lives, and for their children, and their children's children.

"Look into the eyes of a child - you cannot find anything deeper. The eyes of a child are an abyss, there is no bottom to them." Children have an authentic freedom. They are joyful, playful, and naturally creative. But by the time they grow up, most children have been sacrificed to the gods of "productivity" and good behaviour to the extent that only nostalgia for childhood remains.

Osho says, "It is the child's experience that haunts intelligent people their whole life. They want it again - the same innocence, the same wonder, the same beauty."
And while each adult generation may vow, with the best of intentions, not to repeat the same mistakes of the past, they inevitably find themselves imposing their own inherited limitations on new generations to come."

All the Marvelous Earth

It was a lovely morning with fleeting clouds and a clear blue sky.
It had rained, and the air was clean. Every leaf was new and the dreary winter was over; each leaf knew, in the sparkling sunshine,
that it had no relation to last year's spring.

...There were children playing about, but they never looked at that lovely spring day. They had no need to look, for they were the spring. Their laughter and their play were part of the tree, the leaf, and the flower. You felt this, you didn't imagine it. It was as though the leaves and the flowers were taking part in the laughter, in the shouting, and in the balloon that went by. Every blade of grass, and the yellow dandelion, and the tender leaf that was so vulnerable, all were part of the children, and the children were part of the whole earth. The dividing line between man and nature disappeared, but the man on the race-course in his car and the woman returning from the market were unaware of this.
Probably they never even looked at the sky, at the trembling leaf, the white lilac. They were carrying their problems in their hearts, and the heart never looked at the children or at the brightening spring day. The pity of it was that they bred these children and the children would soon become the man on the race-course and the woman returning from the market; and the world would be dark again. Therein lay the unending sorrow. The love on that leaf would be blown away with the coming autumn. 

Bob Marley

John Lennon 'Imagine'

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one 

Gandhi

"Be the change that you wish to see in the world." 

The Peace Symbol

The peace symbol will be turned around as its creator Gerald Holtom wished. This represents a new hope.
