Markus Stockhausen

Hi friends,
my vision: Let us all create a CORONA OF LIGHT AND LOVE around the Earth, to bring forward the truth and heal the people’s hearts and minds. -
Due to the Corona crisis only few concerts are scheduled. Please have a look at the bottom of this page. Seminars are being resumed.

The war currently taking place in Ukraine is horrific and unjustifiable in every respect. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to everyone who has been drawn into the conflict and through no fault of her or his own must now suffer terribly.
At the same time I am shocked to hear of reactions in Germany: citizens of Russian origin are being excluded, defamed or stigmatised and that for some people here concepts like „blame through common nationality“ must automatically lead to a common guilt of the Russians.
Is it not our task to practise empathy, understanding and compassion on all levels of human interaction? How can we hope to unite in peace within a world community if we behave in such a way? Peace will only be possible if we are peaceful in ourselves.
I would like to refer to the Worldwide Ethical Manifesto which I wrote in 2019.
Markus Stockhausen, March 5th, 2022

The time has come that you shall remember who you are.
Forever have you been and shall eternally be.
You have come
to feel the joy of creation,
to see its beauty
and infinitely love
all there is.
For all is thyself in myriad forms.
Each moment you create yourself
and a thousand worlds around.
Your being is bliss, perfection and light.
Rejoice my friend, Rejoice
Markus Stockhausen, 1989

My Dream
I wish all people of this precious Earth to find inner PEACE, with oneself and with one’s family, friends and neighbours. Enjoy good music. Music is a vehicle to our deepest feelings, to our soul. The main message to ALL countries and leaders in this turbulent times must be to promote brotherhood / sisterhood between ALL human beings, helping, supporting each other. Let us all live that dream of a united and peaceful mankind where EVERYBODY can enjoy life. It is in our hands.

No more wars
Only a small minority of people on this planet is interested in wars. Some world leaders, politicians, military people, weapon makers, financiers. Maybe a few million people maximum.
But compared with the 7.5 billion people on this planet today, this is a very small group. Why should they have the saying always ?
Can’t we stand up as humanity, the vast majority of people and speak out loudly: NO MORE WARS ! Enough !!
So much suffering, killing is involved.
Can’t we find better ways to communicate and argue if necessary ?
In sports, olympics, championships, in art, music, theatre, politics … there are so many fields of expression where we can execute our quarrels and fight on a much more sublime level if necessary.
Let’s all be sure about our vision: NO MORE WARS ON THIS PLANET. Finish, forever !
If nobody supported wars anymore, they were finished tomorrow. All atomic weapons could and should be abolished immediately anyway – and all others too.
Let us all work on compassion, respect, support, acknowledgement of our cultural and religious differences, but, PLEASE, peacefully.
We are one humantity, and we are all responsible for the future of our children and this precious planet Earth. Let us create a collective positive vision: a beautiful and healthy environement with a loving and joyful atmosphere.
May you be blessed.
