Hope For Humanity: A Life Worth Living



The year 2013 was probably the worst disaster that hit the Philippines, my beloved country. The day when the most destructive typhoon killed thousands of lives and families that were left homeless. November 8, 2013 was a nightmare to consider. Several lives were lost in an instant and many people suffered from post-traumatic stress. They were helpless, they didn't know what to do and they felt abandoned and neglected. It killed not only innocent lives, but the hopes and dreams of many people; families who are living a very simple life and those who have just started to build they lives. It was all gone due to a major impact caused by Typhoon Yolanda, internationally known as Haiyan.

As a disaster-prone country, we learned to adapt to almost every calamity. We brave the storm and that proves the Resilience of The Filipino Spirit that we are as hard as titanium, but as soft as a pearl. We learn to recover and stand up again despite of the miseries we have experienced. We struggle, we cry, we laugh and we smile. That's the cycle of life we are meant to live. In the Philippines, that's our reality. We are waterproof no matter what challenges we are going through. We Filipinos are tough, but our poor soul experiences the pain that makes us feel helpless, meaningless and lack of direction and purpose. We became lost and wanderer in body, mind and spirit.

Destruction of humanity caused by climate change is the greatest challenge we are facing in this century. We have caused great damage to the earth and we also suffer the consequence; hence disaster is becoming a normal occurrence that we must learn how to fight in order to survive. Yes, we are a survivor in this archipelago of stormy seas. Our survival instinct guides our actions to escape from harm and danger. Our bodies may have become weak, but our spirit still has an energy to live. That is Perseverance in Times of Despair that we develop in our character. We became fearless and we endure all the pain.

As a survivor, I have learned to acknowledge the importance of saving our environment; our nature; the habitat we are living in; saving the forestry that are becoming denuded, creating an awareness for people who doesn't care. People are becoming greedy and busy for the destruction of nature just to gain wealth. That's their way to survive and their way to live. For us, we end up suffering. Those people are careless not to think and feel for the welfare of the people. Truly, a destruction against humanity.

A simple way of expressing disgust to environmental destruction and showing  a support to environment protection drive would mean a lot. I believe there are still people who are a better leader and has a voice and influence to beat the destroyers, the environment killers. I give my support to those who care for humanity and the world. There's nothing more worth living than a peaceful and heaven on earth experience. When we sleep so deep and wake up with higher hopes and goals to accomplish. When we live in harmony with nature and keeping our balance as we progress. There is nothing more in life than to keep everything fair and just.

My previous life experiences made me stronger and to think extraordinarily and My Life's Greatest Challenge prepared me for a bigger role of serving humanity through personal transformation through higher consciousness. I've been prepared for a disaster preparedness for a possible worst case scenario. The world is ever changing and unpredictable, however we can always foresee the events based on the current trend. Today, we are Dealing on The Impact of Climate Change. That's our reality and we are now living on it. We can't stop it, but we can prepare for the worst thing to come to fully survive. I mean not only by physical level, but also by emotional, mental and spiritual levels as well.

Life is good and it is worth living to have a little influence to others. We can make an impact in our own way based on what we believe is right and for the betterment of other people. Our humanitarian actions will go a long way; creating a ripple of kindness and goodwill that will eventually change the world to become a better place. It is our Heart's Desire: Living a Humanitarian Life that will influence others to stand up and take an action for a better mankind. We have higher hopes to ourselves, but we are also hoping more for humanities' future. As I remember, a life in service is a life worth living and a life well lived -- the humanitarian way.
