THE STORY OF JANEZEK AND THE FLAME OF PEACE AND LOVE
From a small idyllic village at the edge of Trnovski gozd Janezek went for a walk to a nearby hill Kobilnik to light a candle for the killed soldiers ... It was a beautiful day and it was getting dark ... The sun was setting into the Adriatic sea, the Julian alps with the Triglav were glowing in the sunset ... A narrow karstic path was leading Janezek to the hill and from a nearby bush he could hear the birds sing ... Suddenly he heard a strange voice from a pile of stones along the path: “Janezek, wait, where are you headed?” ... Janezek was frightened and wanted to run home. “Don’t run, Janezek, don’t be afraid, I won’t do you any harm!”... Janezek stopped, hid in the nearby bush and asked: “Who are you?” … A mysterious voice replied gently: “I am the flame which burns for peace and love”. “What flame, I can see no flame,” answered the scared boy ... “THE FLAME OF PEACE AND LOVE they call me and I have been here from old. Don’t be afraid, come closer and you will feel my warmth, I will warm you.”... Janezek moved carefully from the bush and approached the pile of stones, where the voice was coming from ... “Here I am, under the rock,” a gentle voice said ... Janezek moved the biggest rock ... At that moment a cloud of smoke rose up and the flame was seen. “Oh, thank you, thank you very much, Janezek,” the flame said. Janezek was surprised and didn’t know what the flame was trying to say. “Why are you thanking me?” Janezek was curious ... Happy to be burning again, the flame continued: “Today you did a great thing, a great thing for all people in the world. You found me again. My name is THE FLAME OF PEACE AND LOVE. I am that flame, which has been burning from old, but people have forgotten about me, their lives were full of dark and their hearts became cold. I am happy to burn again, so I can warm people’s hearts and bring the light in everybody’s life which will show them the way out of the dark.” ... Janezek was motionlessly listening to the flame and he was speechless ... The flame asked Janezek: “Do you know anybody who can write songs, who can sing and whose interest is music?” At that moment Janezek encouraged himself and without any fear almost screamed: “I can do all that!”... “Unbelievable, fantastic,” the flame cried out enthusiastically, started to burn even stronger and continued: “Listen to me carefully Janezek. Go and tell people to build me a small house in this place, where I can burn eternally! Write a song about me and go all over the world. Tell and sing people about me. Invite them to visit me here and to light themselves THE FLAME OF PEACE AND LOVE, which will burn in their hearts for peace and love in the world!” ... Janezek ran home and told his mother what he saw and heard ...
THE FLAME OF PEACE AND LOVE burns in Trnovo pri Gorici at the foothills of the hill Kobilnik. It was lit by mayors from both sides of the Slovene-Italian border on 27th August 2005 on the day when Gianni Rijavec gave an international concert for peace. The flame burns for you and me, for all of us, for those who were, who are and who will be. THE FLAME OF PEACE AND LOVE has supernatural power and let this power bring the flame in everyone of us. Let it burn inside of us, so we can live and work for peace and love. Go to that small idyllic village at the edge of Trnovski gozd and find THE FLAME OF PEACE AND LOVE. Find it for yourself, for your dearest and for all people of the world - for those who were, who are and who will be. Light THE FLAME OF PEACE AND LOVE and take it home in a special lantern, give it to your friends, neighbours and acquaintances.
There are too many people who don’t have their inner peace and live without love. They feel empty inside and they have a negative affect on people. Such people cause a lot of problems! The flame burns, let it go inside of those people. LET THE FLAME OF PEACE AND LOVE BURN IN THEM!
Inner peace is a condition for peace in the world!
