Survive and Thrive

It's been more than a month on quarantine; isolated from people and from 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 it as a long vacation, but should not have been this way never ever this way.

Our world suddenly stopped, but see! the world we live in is healing itself. Lots of changes from 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 of our body, mind, and soul can be a great contribution to the world. We may have inflicted lots of pain on our natural world, and 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 greater service to others, we contribute to the 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 It has been replaced by love and understanding.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 survive, we also dare to thrive; grow; 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, in any way even in our own little way.

Don't just survive, but thrive!
