It's Sunita here.
If we were told we are alone from the get go, how would we live?
If we were told we are going to have to fight to find out who we truly are, would we be able to bear this truth?
Only when we are faced with losing everything, or have lost everything do we get up, and fight to reclaim ourselves.
The strength we need to survive the harshness that we experience as humans does not come after we reach a certain stage where we ‘find’ the courage to do so.
It comes from the courage we build, by taking steps to fight the adversities, losses, and challenges of life as a human.
We do not move forward towards courage. We build courage by moving forward, despite feeling weak, scared, overwhelmed, and uncertain.
No one can give us that courage. We have to dig deep inside and find it within ourselves.
Only when we decide that we cannot, and will not, live in the awful state that we are in do we make the changes that we must to get out of our pain.
That is when our true selves emerge to discover the riches of being human. Our fight takes us to places of strength, confidence, pride, wisdom, and joy.
Yes, we are alone. That is the painful truth.
We came into this world alone. And we will leave it on our own as well. But we are connected to each other, invisibly. And to the universe. That connectedness is the energy that fuels our fight.
Only we can decide to use this energy to overcome our burdens and oppressions. Living free is the prize.
When will you say, 'No More'? It's up to you to make that choice.
Until next time,
