Sou mesmo um coração de manteiga que se derrete por belas histórias.
Hoje quando cheguei ao meu Facebook deparei-me com uma história divulgada por 2 músicos que eu admiro: Deva Premal & Miten. A história fala de uma rapaz de 23 anos que não se consegue mexer, nem falar, o seu nome é Niek Zervaas. Ele escreveu-lhes um e-mail para dizer que iria a um concerto deles, aquele acontecimento era o concretizar de um sonho, estaria numa maca especial e gostaria de os conhecer.
Deixo-vos abaixo o texto que descreve o Niek e o encontro. Uma história de enternecer e derreter os corações mais fortes, uma história que nos deixa uma marca e muitas lições a aprender.
Some weeks ago we received a very touching eMail:
Dear Deva Premal and Miten,
On May 26 I will visit your concert in Almere (NL). My name is Niek Zervaasand for the eyes of the body I am a very disabled person. I cannot walk, talk,I am not able to do anything without help. When people look withthe eyes of the heart they will recognize my strength and my love flowingdirectly from the source where we are ONE. and where disabilities don't excist.It is my mission and passion to bring love into the world and I recognizeyou doing the same with your songs. It is my dream to join one of your concertsand I am very happy that my dream comes through. During the concert I will be restingin a special bed and I hope you can find a moment during that night to meetme so that we can see each other into the eyes. If that is not possible, don't worry, we are connected anyway.I send you and Manose all my LOVE,
Yesterday - at the concert - we met Niek. During the break I went up in the balcony where his mom and his helpers had arranged his bed (the venue were very helpful in arranging this) and there he was, lying curled up. A tiny body with no obvious response to anything from the 'outside'.
He was surrounded by so much love from the people taking care of him and obviously he was generating it.
A good reminder not to "judge the book by the cover"! He is 23 now and when he was 18 they found out that he could communicate through a special alphabet board. Since then he has been shring his love with people through books, letters and a website: www.niekzervaas.nl
After the concert his friends gave Miten this message:
My beloved friends of eternity,I want you to know that I am very happy and very grateful for our re-connection in this life. The earth touched the sky tonight and I hope we will keep in touch.I know we will be one in hearts.With all my love,Niek
His friends told us that he can understand all languages, remembers his past lives and that he chose this body this time round, to bring love to the world.
Thank you, Niek, for coming to the concert!
With love from us both,
ps: his motto: WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT WHAT YOU GET!
