Starting to make a small impact

16 Jul

Dear Supporters,

I hope all of you are doing well and your life has become better and better.

It has been a very long time that we posted an upadate on our blogs. You know that we have been searching for a nice place to establish “The Growing Stone of Hope”. Unfortunaetly, the mayors we contacted around Frankfurt do not want to support our project. That is a pitty but not an end.

Now we are looking for a garden we need to pay for. That was not the initial idea but it is a way to continue the project. As soon as we fixed the place we will let you know and provide some new pictures. When we have the place secured we need to count all the stones that are missing….yeah over 32000 STONES.

Please have a look at our brand new Supporting Card (Business Cards) – If you want – you can print them as well and share them with your friends. The more people know about TGSH – the better.

I know this is a short update but it is better than nothing ….

Take care and all the best!

30057 Stones of Love and Hope!!! Place needed!

18 Mar

Hey Supporters,

how are you doing in this very moment while you are reading this question? Please take a short moment and think about your mood. Why do you feel that way…? If it is a beautiful feeling ..ask yourself why it is there and how you can access it day in and day out. If it is a so so feeling, find out what you can do against it and how you can get rid of it. Feelings influence our whole body and thoughts. They are what makes us move and accomplish our goals.

A few minutes ago I checked the original Growing Stone of Hope youtube video (14sec.). I realised that we have more than 30.000 clicks / STONES now. That made me happy and therefore I wanted to share my happiness with you. The clicks made me move…

At the moment we have a nice flow of obtaining clicks 🙂 That is fabulous!

However, we really want to offer you some new pictures of the whole progress and right there is the issue we are still facing. We are pretty certain that TGSH is becoming enormously huge. Without any doubt we do need a place where TGSH can continue growing. If we add more and more stones to TGSH right now, it will have such a weight after a while, that we can not carry it anymore by ourselves. In addition, it will be too big to move. Therefore, we really need a beautiful location for TGSH. We already checked some places near by but they are all too expensive.

As soon as we have the right place – we believe that the new pictures will be just astonishing and fascinating at the same time. The new pictures will definitely liven the place up!

Your ideas and recommendations to obtain the right location for TGSH in Germany close to Frankfurt am Main are very welcome.

Have a look at the 30057 clicks in black and white – how beautiful is that 🙂 Yeahhh! Thank you so much! We wish you all the best

Please take care

The Fingertip Story!

7 Feb


at the moment I am a little bit excited to post this experience due to weird thoughts that are flying through my head; however, I just follow my feeling and tell you a short story that happened to me a few days ago. Well, before I start, I just want to let you know again, that I truly believe in God and that I believe –> everything that happens in life has a “higher meaning”. For example, I traveled a very strange way to get to know my dream woman who is now my lovely wife. (Love at the first sight, at the same time -> both the same incredible feeling) …well thats another story…

“The Fingertip Story”

A few days ago, I have been very depressive. In these days I thought the raining days were the reason for my bad mood; or just because I felt more or less lost in space. Therefore, I prayed to God –>>I told him to make me happy again and to give me power to get through this dilemma.

Around 18:00 o’clock I decided to go to the gym to get some distraction. Oh boy… I can tell you that the parking lot was completely full; therefore, I decided to park next to the gym. A place where no car was parked but which was snow-covered! I thought the snow would not matter too much and I could get out of it easily again. Well,….. I was wrong……..when I drove down the little hill on the snow, I realised that I am going to be stuck sooner or later.

I decided to turn around and drive back. It was a miracle that I was able to turn my car around. However, as soon as I wanted to drive back to the top of the hill, I got stuck with my car. I was trying and trying to bring my car up again, but there was no way at all.

Slowly but surely, I smelled the clutch of my car. Right there I turned my car off and got out. I looked at my car and thought about the situation I got myself in……I started to talk to myself and said things like …why did I decide to park here? Why did I not park somewhere else? ..I just wanted to go to the gym and now I am stuck with my car. Why?

Well, I thought if I do not get out tonight, I am not going to be able to get to work tomorrow, I will not have a car for a long day, I need to call someone to help me out, I will be stressed out, etc…. so I sat down again and I called my sister to help me out. As always she wanted to support me right away.  She wanted to buy skid chains and bring them over. While we were talking on the phone I turned on the car again. I wanted to try it again and while I was looking at my speedo I saw a small button. A button I have not used for more than six years. The button was called ESP – ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL – while we were still talking on the phone, I pressed the button and I got out of this horrible situation as fast a rocket flies into space. I have been on the top of the hill in less than 15 seconds.

That success was one of the most beautiful feelings I had in the last few days. I was so happy that I was smiling the rest of day. When I was standing on the top of the hill, I knew that I have been in this horrible situations because God wanted to tell me that I can get out of any difficult situation within matter of nano seconds. I have been stuck but just with a fingertip I enjoyed peace and freedom again. At that moment, I really have been enormously happy and I thanked God so much for showing me how easy life can be.

I prayed to God and at the same day he answered! I prayed to him to make me happy and he did! Although, I had this experience a few days ago – I am still pretty happy – I know God is with me and when I need him he is always there for me. I just love him!

Why Am I Telling You The Fingertip Story?

To be honest….I want to give you a gooseflesh, I want to inspire you, I want that you never give up and that you know that you are not alone!

If you believe in God, then start strengthening your connection with this higher energy more and more. I believe, if you have no doubts at all that God is always with you, you will unify with him.


P.S: I have been thinking to post this story or not ….while I am writing this line I am proud I am going to post it.

…who knows …maybe the story is going to help you out….


I really wish you all the best and please take care! (watch out for snow covered parking lots)

18277 Stones of Hope !!!

1 Feb

Hey there,

the first month of the new year already passed by….time passes fast – too fast in my opinion – always remember that you can not buy time – > one of the most precious untouchable items we have in life.

Well, today I just want to give you an update about “The Growing Stone of Hope” again – Now we have more than 18 277 Stones of Real Hope. My wife and I still need to add them to be able to make a new picture. However, first we actually need to obtain 18000 stones from somewhere 🙂

If you know someone who would love to send us some special small stones, then please do hesitate to contact us. It would be wonderful to be supported by someone / company to let the Growing Stone of Hope become bigger and bigger.

All right everyone, I need to go to work now…I really wish you all the best and that your dreams become true. Leave me your comments -> they are always motivating for us!

Please take care

We need YOUR IDEAS PLEASE! Over 12900 Stones!

11 Jan


today is the 01.11.2015 and boy.. I can tell you that the year started pretty well already! This year there is a lot of stuff to do for us and we are eager to succeed in all areas. If you are eager enough to change your life this year, then set a goal -> write it down -> put it next to your bed -> look at it each morning and before you go to bed -> focus on it and sooner or later your brain will come up with a strategy to make your goal / dream come true. If you do not have a goal in mind…something your are fighting for ..then why should your brain use its amazing power to support you to change your life anyways. You need to know what you want so your whole body / cells know where to go and what to look for.

Well, in regard to “The Growing Stone of Hope”….we are a little bit stucked….now we have more than 12900 Stones (we still need to add them, (but that is not the problem)…however TGSH is really heavy now and we are in the 6th floor without an elevator.

So we have been thinking that we move TGSH to our basement for a while and continue adding the stones there…

TO BE HONEST – We do not believe that is the right place for TGSH – our basement is not really pretty and its cold / there is no love at all. Our basement is not special and we have the feeling it is just not the right place for this project – A project where we all put so much love into it, that you are supporting so well and that will change the life of so many children in need in India and in other countries…

that is why we need your ideas – please give us some ideas ….what should we do next…?

we do want to rent any place but we would love to put The Growing Stone of Hope in a garden or to a beautiful place that is big enough and where people can have a look at it as soon as it is SUPER HUGE!

We are located in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

thank you for your ideas

best regards

8487 Stones of Hope – New Design – more weight – new colours

25 Dec

Ho Ho Ho,

I have some great news! The Growing Stone of Hope does not stop to grow! We already have more than 8487 Stones. That is wonderful…and TGSH is gaining weight 🙂  On the pictures you see TGSH with just 3500 Stones. Unfortunately, we do not have more stones available right now. Soon my wife and I will purchase some stones to add them to the other ones.

TGSH is getting bigger and bigger and so we needed to change the design to be able to add more stones in future.

Thank you for supporting us!   “Us = The People In Need”

best regards

Two Days In The Hospital – Over 7500 Stones of Hope – Be Grateful

22 Dec

Hi everyone,

once again the year is ending. 2014 is coming to an end. Actually, I can remember how I was writing a post at the end of 2013. Time passes very fast…well, that is how I experience it…Time is absolutely the most precious “Not Touchable” power in our life that we all share the same way. Use your time wisely because you never know when it is all gone…

A few days ago my wife and I were visiting a special person in the hospital. After a view hours we decided to go home. A 45 minute drive was in front of us. When we left the room I immediately felt a pain on the left side close to my stomach. I went to the toilet and hoped something would change so I would feel better to drive home again, but I was absolutely wrong.

I came out of the toilet and my wife said I looked pretty pale…well, everything happen pretty fast and the pain on my left side became worse. At that point there was no way that I could drive home again. Therefore, we went down to the emergency room and “checked in”! I can not describe the pain I had in detail but I can tell you, that I could not stand anymore. I had to sit down and more or less I was screaming for help. Due to the fact, that I looked pretty pale and that I continuously said that the pain got stronger and stronger, the nurse granted me access to the emergency room where I could lie down on a stretcher.

After a few minutes (10-30minutes) they made a ultrasound and brought me back to the emergency room where a doctor looked at the results and finally ordered to give me some painkillers (liquid). This “little bottle” was just amazing. The liquid entered into my body and after 5-10 minutes most of the pain was almost gone. ohhh yeah that was the moment I could talk normally again… The doctor explained me that I had kidney stones…”KIDNEY STONES” I was completely shocked – I never thought that kidney stones can hurt so much…I never thought that I would get kidney stones…ohhhhh boy… I was out of my mind…

After they gave me the painkiller, I could walk again, and so they brought me up to the seventh floor in a room where I could rest. My wife was all the time next to me and she informed my family as well. My mother and sister came to visit me. Around eight o’clock at night everyone left my room and I started to think and ask questions why this is happening to me…..

It did not take long and I was thinking about our project “The Growing Stone of Hope”. I imagined how it is for a homeless boy or girl having this pain I just experienced and not having the opportunity to be treated right away. What is a young homeless child going to do when he or she has this pain? The pain I had was awful but my pain has been relieved within one hour. A homeless child in India will probably not receive the same treatment as most of us.

Let’s come back to my question: Why did I have Kidney Stones? Here is my interpretation – > my interpretation will sound crazy for some people but that does not matter to me. Kidney Stones and The Growing Stone of Hope have one word in common “Stone(s)” ;furthermore, while I was on the stretcher and in my bed I was hoping that the kidney stones would just vaporize while urinating.

My hopes and wishes became true the same night. The painkiller made me urinate a couple of times and two to three stones left my body sooner or later. The next day the doctor made a ultrasound again and said that I have some tiny stones left which can not be destroyed at the moment and so he let me go home and I checked out.

At the moment I feel well but many times a day I catch myself thinking about the pain I had and about the question when I am going to experience it again.

I am sure some of you had kidney stones as well and it has been a piece of cake dealing with it for some of you. I know there are illnesses, diseases, etc. out there that are more than horrible. I am just sharing this story with you to start a movie in your head that illustrates the different worlds we are living in. Actually, I am just posting this story to push you to let everyone know about this project. If we want that this project becomes successful – then we need that people know about it. We need that as many people support us as possible. I believe that the pain I had was a reminder for me how important it is that this project becomes a huge success and that there are many people out there that need our “Combined Support”.

Leave us a comment and let the world know that together we can change the world!

If I do not post again in this year I wish you MERRY XMAS and a Happy New Year!

Take Care and be Grateful for everyone who is close to you and for everything that you have!

Best regards

BIG UPDATE – PLUS 882 Stones for The Growing Stone of HOPE!

9 Nov

Yes ! The headline of this post is incredible.

We just added 882 (eight, eight, two) STONES of HOPE to “The Growing Stone of Hope”. It took us a while to add them but each second was a very special one. (smile) Actually, my wife and I could do that all day long.

Have a look at the picture. WoW, you really can see a difference. The Growing Stone of Hope is growing and growing – isn’t that beautiful?! Let us know what you think of this great step.

_MG_5479 _MG_5481 _MG_5482 _MG_5483 _MG_5484 _MG_5485

Besides, we gained over 1000 subscribers on Youtube. That is really a huge success. Now, we are hoping that the Youtube FanFinder will start to support us to gain even more fans for the project.

If you haven’t clicked on the video yet or you have the urge to click on it again to make us add some more stones to the other ones, then please go ahead – here is the link 🙂

Link: (14 sec.)

In addition, I would like to recall the purpose of The Growing Stone of Hope.

As soon as the Growing Stone of Hope has more than 1 million stones, we want to sell it to people that do not have to worry about money. For instance, Tony Robbins, Jeff Walker, Prince Harry, Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffett, Shah Rukh Khan, Bill Gates and many more who want to participate. With this money we want to create “Schools and Universities” for girls > first in New Delhi, India and then around the world. The Growing Stone of Hope project is not going to end after we received the donation; instead, it will become an ongoing support for people in need. We already have a decent plan how we are going to finance ourselves as soon as we sold The Growing Stone of Hope. To be honest, as soon as “The Growing Stone of Hope” has become a success, we are able to support people in need very efficiently.

Well, as we all know – the first step is always the most difficult one….however…don’t get me wrong now, but I am very confident that we will reach this goal ( with your support -what can go wrong?!). My wife and I are believing in the “POWER OF THOUGHTS” and I can tell you, that I already realized that the “Power of Thoughts” exist. Thoughts that you think of – go directly to the Universe. The Universe makes them come true no matter if the thought was positive or negative. …so be careful what you think of.. If you believe in it as well, I am sure that you made the same experience already, that something you were thinking of from day to day, became true sooner or later

Here you can see some pictures of New Delhi. A schools bus (the blue one is a school bus for real!) and some pictures of people who live on the street. Remember we all can make a big difference to the people by just clicking on a Youtube Video and forwarding it to our friends and family.

As always – leave us your comment – we are very happy to read them all.

We wish you all the best and take care
