Those who work to improve life and eliminate suffering have learned what it means to be human beings. Those who work to inflict suffering upon the “others” are those who have not yet been fully developed conscientious human being. Viggo Mortensen has became the embodiment of the message of peace and brotherhood by making best use of his intellect and knowledge. When I come across people like Viggo then it feels like finding a gemstone under a pile of rocks. Brotherhood of humanity is the meeting place to be WHOLE and ONE!
“We actually have more in common with other people, other cultures and other races, than not. People need to make a conscious effort to try and find some common ground, rather than react to what they see as differences.” Viggo Mortensen
“This year’s first day of April was noticeably lacking in April Fool’s jokes as far as mention in the media was concerned. Perhaps this is due to the fact that, with George Bush and Dick Cheney still at the helm of the ship of state, there is no need to single out a particular day for foolishness or nasty pranks in the United States: every day is April Fool’s day in this country for the time being.” Viggo Mortensen
“Among the most revered of teachings in any religion or spiritual code of ethics, including those attributed to Jesus Christ, is the admonition to care for the least fortunate among us. This lesson seems to have gone unheeded by any in the health care and insurance business, and, most tellingly, by the politicians who do their often uncharitable and obstructionist bidding.” Viggo Mortensen
I would recommend watching some of the films he has played in, especially the films, Hidalgo, Lord of the Rings, A History of Violence, The Road, and Witness. The script of Hidalgo film could have been much better. Viggo does a brilliant acting work to show beauty of the human heart and mind. He is a person of deep consciousness. Hidalgo is a must watch film.
I would like to read some of his poetry work. If you have read any of his poems then please share some on this page.
Thank you Viggo Mortensen for all the work you have over the last three decades.
