what is there left to say that is not being said yet?
what is there to announce that is not being revealed before?
my teacher once said, that there is no new in this world…everything that is waiting to be discovered is dwelling with us though unnoticed for some time, sooner or later, we will be able unearth it. Research is used to update and eradicate things that are needed to be altered for some reasons.
I read a book of a gymnast athlete that relayed her story piece by piece and I am once again struck how our experience get to be so familiar and similar in some ways no matter how far we are to each other, regardless the difference of the cultures we are being raise. I remember the Philosophy subject I had in my 2nd year college, first semester, about the universal shared experience of man. In countless ways, people shared similarity and oddity.
We have the same frailties, vulnerability, and limits. Though some may be advanced to some aspect, some are extremely flawed but it didn’t discount them to reach their potential to grow and learn. there may be variations, but come to think of it, their pain, joy, sadness, fear is just equally the same from the rest. We are all dealing with the same emotions and feelings.
So whenever I looked at the beggars from the streets, the homeless children asking for alms, the sickly person I saw from the hospital, the tears of a woman wiped by a wet napkin, rained by her tears, the ringing laughter from the group of friends gives me a tremendous of emotions flowing from my heart. I know the feeling of hunger, I experience of having few coins left in my pocket and its terrible, how much terrible it could be if there is none and no one in mind to get for help. I know how it is to hold your tears but you end up sobbing, I know the exhausting feeling of getting sick. I know it, we know it.
Yet, we’re passive, amazingly, we turned to be callous by the needs of others. We avoid to take notice of them, we look away cuz we know that looking longer may drove us to compassion.
I once asked my teacher in one of my major subject about what would be our significance in contributing help to aid a particular issue since we are spending a tedious process of researching and observing our society. Is it only for the loved of grade or after we graduate and continue our research, will it be worth the effort spent for it. Can I liken it to a medicine discovered by the pharmaceutical Scientist that largely create a relief and cure to people. I highly respected those people who make a difference to the lives of others.
God’s love is the best antidote to deliver us from hoarding our resources and deprived others to get helped. I hope that we will be able to encounter God’s love to an intimate level that we may be able to love ourselves truly and share it to others. Love has been with us before the world was formed yet only few came to discover it. I Hope everyone will.
