"BATTLES OF A LIFETIME"


 
Nowadays the world is in intense turmoil
Natural disasters, deaths, losses of all sorts, uncertainties
Wars and lack of compassion, selfishness, and negativism

I ask myself...
When there is this shadow of pains and fears over all of us everywhere
What we should learn from these experiences in which we may be caught
As victims or expectators?

No matter what side we are ... all become involved, mentally, physically, or emotionally ...
It is impossible to be indifferent to what threats the survival of all of us in this planet...
This is the big picture .... the life we live to the world outside ... this life that somehow connects
us all, no matter religion, race, background, culture, personal status in society, color, believes ....

Inside of us ... in our world of emotions that is so volatile
All of these things also are likely to happen similarly...
"Self-quakes" followed by tsunamis of overwhelming feelings
Losses, deaths, crisis, worries, uncertainties ...
There are times one's inner life has its own disasters ...

Then, no matter if in the world outside or inside ... there will be a time of grief and loneliness
Reconstruction, searches for new paths of possibilities and hopes ...
Another chance of "reinventing" life with better moments, safe environment
Generosity, braveness, sense of companionship, humanity, and love ...

No matter how serious the disaster might be ..
We human beings have inside us this eagerness to keep believing that it still worths to be here ...
Life has potential to be pretty again and uplifting
After all, after powerful storms, comes a rainbow, the sky becomes blue again, the clouds clean

and light ...
It is true that unfortunately some between us will be taken by the storm forever .. will perish
Life stories reaching the end in this existence ...
Life is made of challenges, mysteries, discoveries ...
No matter if in the physical world or emotional world
Life is a constant battle to keep the balance of things
Keep the coherence in words and actions
Some days will be felt disgraceful
Other days made of pure pride ....

No matter if outer or inner storms
One thing is certain ..
More important than trying to find reasons to what happens to us
Is to think about what to do to move on, go forward
By overcoming the bumps on the way
Loosening knots
Reborn on and on from the ashes ....
