Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Some people are getting really tired of politicians and politics. We have some examples here in Spain, but here's another one of a 4-year-old American girl:

Ordinary people want to live, work, study, sleep... just ordinary lives full of ordinary goals, so let us be!!!!

Make any comments you wish about the issue and tell me about the lyrics of the song by John Lennon.
Some little questions:
  1. What does 'wisdom' mean?

  1. I think lately global politics is undergoing a great crisis. Here, in Spain, we are economically horrible and all the people are fighting against the government because they are making budget cuts in all spheres associated with citizenship. Health and education are being privatized and they can only be accessed by wealthy people.
    I think if we want to overcome the crisis we have to be patient and hope, because everything changes over time, and to do this we must all be aware of a series of principles. If they want to make budget cuts they should think and act with restraint to make people happy. In my opinion they should reduce in different spheres from health and education because these ones are basic for people.
    I think this is the message we can take from the song "Let It Be", which is written by Paul McCarteney and it's devoted to his mother. Here are the activities:
    1. What does 'wisdom' mean? Experience, common sense
    2. What is the adjective that comes from this noun? Wise
    3. Who are The Three Wise Men? Melchor, Gaspar y Baltasar, who are known as "Reyes Magos" in Spain
    4. Can you give me a synonym of 'let'? Leave
    5. What does 'TO LET' mean? In this case it’s not to worry. Everything will be all right

  2. 1. What does 'wisdom' mean? a person who has intelligent thoughts.
    2. What is the adjective that comes from this noun? wise.
    3. Who are The Three Wise Men? perhape three wise men could be the three magi kings.
    4. Can you give me a synonym of 'let'? allow.
    5. What does 'TO LET' mean? in this song To lets is dream and not to get angry with.

    I don't like politics and politicians are liar because they don't carry out with their promise.

  4. Nowadays politics is one of the issues people speak most about, mainly because of the situation we are living in Spain, for example. Politicians put the country in debt and now they are trying to solve the problems by cutting expenses in education or health areas. I think these actions taken by the powerful politicians are absolutely unbearable for the fact that these areas involved in the cuts from the government are the most basic fields to increase life quality. All the people deserve to receive a decent education, as well as we deserve to have some health resources whenever we need to. There are thousands of demonstrations these days all over Spain complaining about these measures which threaten directly people's rights. I really think, as the most part of our society, that politicians should cut costs in other areas. For example, they should not invest so much money on banks bailouts when there are homeless people who are suffering from hunger, people who are losing their homes and people who, because of the evictions, are suiciding themselves.
    The little questions:
    What does 'wisdom' mean? Wisdom means intelligence.
    What is the adjective that comes from this noun? Wise is the adjective.
    Who are The Three Wise Men? The Three Wise Men are the Spanish well known "Reyes Magos".
    Can you give me a synonym of 'let'? Allow.
    What does 'TO LET' mean? TO LET means that you want to have someone to rent your flat. In the song 'Let It Be', to let may refer to relax and allow things taking their paths. Let it be means allow people to live, to be free...
