part of my job description is to read the newspapers on a daily basis and mind you, i love reading the newspapers. But in time, the world conflicts, violence and other social ills seem to have suck out the fun in my daily readings...and the more i read into it, the more ashamed i feel for being one of the so called humans.
i've always known that we humans are unique and complicated beings, with intricate thoughts and psyche..but for some people, having the big matter we know as the brain doesn't really matter cos despite having the intellect, they lack compassion...
look back and reflect at our first memory of how this world was or is supposed to be like, reflect to a time when theoretical knowledge supercedes our previous understanding of our current understanding of this world.
long before i knew this world was round, way before i learned that the earth has existed for aeons and humans has been around as long as the earth has, i've always imagined that the world before this was covered with green meadows and golden sunlight shining brightly and at night, instead of one moon, there would be two moons of different colours to light up the night sky...but the most striking feeling i could imagine was the calmness which seem to envelope the place. there were no wars or conflicts and everyone kinda understood everyone else's needs and it goes without having to utter a single word. yeah, this may sound like one of those science fiction movies, but hey...that was my first thought of how this world would have been like before there were buildings and cars.
what i'm trying to say here is that, i believe that all of us has that innate understanding of how things should be the moment we came into this world. All of us has that clear understanding of what peace, love and respect is. But as we grow older, we seem to lose touch of our inner self and start looking at the world in all it's glory, and our initial perception of how things should be like are swayed by the ideologies and politics of certain individuals or groups.
i still believe there are kindness in everyone, we don't need to rely on religion to express the good in us because it is already there in us. We are lucky to have God to believe in and the religious institutions are lucky to have these kind of people in their midst because it amplifies their religious values as if implying their religion is better than the rest because of these people.
i believe in people, irregardless of your skin colour and race. despite our different features, we are still, after all, brothers of men. all of us has the same red blood, all of us bleed when we hurt and all of us crave for peace, love and respect.
i love nature in all its abundance, the floras and faunas, the unpredictable weather, the rain, the sun, the moon, the stars, and the list goes on and on.
i strongly agree that people can change, for the better or for the worse..it all depends on what the individual wants in life. i've changed, i've become wiser, and i'm living a contented life and no one will ever take that away from me...anymore.
but more importantly, i believe in myself. selfish as it may sound, there's no one else we can truly trust but ourselves :).
i am who i am and we are who we are...if one person can make a difference, than a group of people could probably change the world :).
what can i say, i am weird hahaha...ciao peeps...
