Day 83 – Can LOVE save us all?

Day 83
What I feel like saying…. 
I’m not super human. In fact I’m not even a super mom like my kids thought I was. 
My days are often chirpy but there were also days, I felt like not waking up.
The reason I started out this “what I feel like saying” is to get up and live again after a devastating slew of events happening in my life. And yes, my mom’s departure was one of them.
I’ve been through dark nights of the soul. And that was pretty intense. But I’m not referring to that. I’m referring to the everyday where sometimes, I just felt like not waking up.
I believe you have those moments too. 
Recently, Singapore has opened its doors to phase 2. In order to resume our normal lives and activities from the previous circuit breaker… Her leaders created baby-steps for her residents. 
I for once am grateful for the sunshiny weather with a few rain here and there… To be out in the open (with masks), and seeing other residents as well.
But like a caged bird, I was reluctant to come out at first. Fears started singing it’s tune and my feet restrained themselves.
I was so comfy in my home body that I don’t want anything to ever change. I absolutely love having my kids (though sometimes we can be a bit much for each other) with me. And our creative ways of keeping each other entertain and sane… 
But I also acknowledge days whereby I felt like not waking up at all. I felt like if I were to sleep, and sleep and sleep, whatever the world is going thru will either come to pass or disappear, completely.
Because I feel greatly. I empathise with the world intensely. And I felt as if there was something I can do but unsure what. I wanted to save the world but I cannot even save myself. 
To wake up with news of brutality towards many races and it’s discrimination, to hear stories of women, men, children being outraged and to see injustice created in the name of saving the world and many more… 
To watch life goes by which felt like… with my hands tied, truly is very devastating. And the surrounding non peaceful squabbles landed around the world about inequality of genders, races, religions etc… saddens me. 
I mean, c’mon…. Cut us open and we all bleed. And the colour of our blood is red. That itself is enough to unite us all. 
Our race, religion, gender, caste, networth etc… even the air that we breathe should be LOVE, love, love. 
I thought what we went thru together around the world, unite and bond us all. I mean, isn’t covid enough? 
Do we need a bigger catastrophe for it to awaken us to love one another and see each other thru eyes of love? 
In spite of it all…
Did we learn anything from this covid? 
There were those who still eye one another with much discrepancies and so much dislike, that even the thought of the world ending will create Nothing in their hearts. 
Because we each have a different understanding what the world is and what she needs. 
Can LOVE save us all?
Do we want to be saved? 
Hmm…. 
If we can put aside for once, (just mere seconds is enough) our differences and selfish motivations….
What will the world be? 
I leave this song for us to ponder…
” Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one. “
Imagine by John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

P. S: Together, let’s awaken our world by being our most authentic, joyous, abundant, loving selves. 
It’s OK, if you don’t belong to the crowd. Belong to yourself is enough. You are ENOUGH.
Be the unique you and shine. You matter. 
We matter. The world need us in our colourful truths. Stand strong. Rise bold. 
Don’t matter if there is anyone with you or supporting you or the fact that you felt unwanted or rejected. 
You don’t need permission to be you. You are a life warrior. Have courage to do what feels right to you.
Stop hiding in the shadows. Stop concealing your imperfections. 
It’s OK if you have unhealed wounds. Resolute to learn/unlearn, grow and heal them. We are all works-in-progress. 
Your existence is important and it is powerful. There is a great purpose/s in you being alive. 
Remember that. 
I may not know you but if I did, I know, I will love you. Because no matter what we are, we each deserved to be loved, seen, heard and matter.
This is what I believe. This is my truth. I’m Honouring it by sharing and spreading my message. 
What is your truth? Get to know, explore. Then, Express and Share it.
