Survive and Thrive

It's been more than a month in quarantine, isolated from people and the community. You can't get out; you can't move freely and comfortably.

Some call it home arrest away from the unseen invader. Others may fantasize about it as an extended vacation, but it should not have been this way never ever this way.

Our world suddenly stopped, but see! our world is healing itself. Lots of changes in our community and the rest of the world. 

If the world is healing, how can we not benefit from it? We, too, must start to heal, and so like the healing earth, we can become whole again and ready to see the world again.

Healing our body, mind, and soul can significantly contribute to the world. We may have inflicted much pain on our natural world, so we suffer. We suffer from living in uncertainty... beyond our reality.

And now, the world forces us to reflect and heal our minds and emotion. Unless we heal ourselves, we will be a prisoner of fate forever.

However, there will always be an antidote for our suffering. It is when our collective actions benefit the world and humanity.

There is healing in our love, in our hope, and in our faith. That's a healing antidote. Not a vaccine.

When we think beyond ourselves and do more excellent service to others, we contribute to healing. And so today, no more fear! No more anxiety! It has been replaced by love and understanding.

Yes, we are surviving! But in our desire to stay, we also dare to thrive, grow, and become better and stronger. Our life journey never ends after these challenging times. Hence there are endless possibilities for us to learn and be of service even in our own way.

Don't just survive, but thrive!
