We Are Champions In This Fight

Tonight, I am holding the vision that we will be champions in this fight against the coronavirus.

Is the Earth Breathing Better?

COVID-19 is causing havoc in human lungs and somehow I can’t help but feel that is what we have been doing to our environment for decades. Of course, we can’t possibly imagine what the river feels when it is dried or the bears feel when they are hungry or what the turtles and sea creatures feel when strangled in the garbage thrown by humans in the water that sustains them. I like to use the analogy that life is like a GPS and when we go off route, the GPS has a way of re-routing. We can take a longer or shorter time to get to our destinations with alternative views – but eventually we will get there. The truth of the matter is that all life is connected and when one part is off-balanced, we are sure to experience an imbalance in another part. Nothing in this life goes unnoticed and when we least expect it, the universe speaks and re-routes us.

Breaking News – Are You Getting Out Of Here Alive?

My breaking news to you this morning… none of us are leaving this earth alive – now or a day later or 50 years later. The coronavirus is creating havoc but also creating opportunities for us to examine what is important in our lives. Our forefathers were called to fight wars for the freedoms which we have today and in the process, many lost their lives, some became amputates and many of them learnt to live with traumatic memories. Some returned to their loved ones in a different state than when they left. After WW11, women who had been traditional housewives become empowered to become nurses and to serve their countries in a variety of roles which the new frontier provided. Through the turmoil of wars, new opportunities were created and proved that we are more capable than we think we are. Each wave of crisis helps us to expand ourselves and the global village which we inhabitants of.

Wishing you a Happy Family Day – thinking specially of Immigrant Families

As a immigrant, it is inevitable that we lose connection with some of our family members. This is perhaps one of the saddest parts of immigration. The next saddest part is that children miss out on the dynamics of extended family, if they migrate only with their parents. Parents also face low moments when they wish they were nearer to their siblings and in particular parents whom they left behind. It is therefore important that we build ways to preserve our family roots.

The Rain Won’t Stop Because You can’t Handle More…

The rain won’t stop because we can’t handle more neither will the birds stop flying whether we like or dislike them. The sun will come out each morning and the darkness will take away the light of the sun, whether we like it or not. The nature of life is just that – we did not create it nor will we stop it despite of what is going in in our personal life.

What would make the day better for you?

I believe that our human connection is what sets us apart, what we long for and what we are also afraid of. While we superficially mask our emotions or spend more time behind screens… perhaps what would make us feel whole, connected and great contributors of our societies, is extending the warmth of friendship.

A Million Blessings Between the Earth and the Sky…

I like to think that I am on vacation here on this earth. I want to tune in and enjoy all the blessings between the earth and the sky – millions of blessing! I believe that the more we can count our blessings, the greater our blessings will be.
