I decided to do this blog post as I get asked how can one help in supporting a humanitarian cause be it helping Rohingya Refugees, victims of terrorists attacks, natural disaster, violence, health matters, importance of education, or any number of other issues that are happening around the globe. I myself used to struggle around thinking of ways of giving my best back to humanity. However, we all have limitations. Our limitations are around unable to travel to those parts of the world and physically helping those who are in great need of financial and medical aid. This does not mean that we should get disheartened and give up. Take some time and read the following steps one can take and make a difference around the world even from their electronic devices. Always remember change is a constant process and does not happen overnight. One single step, even a thought of making a difference around the globe and reaching out starts the cycle of change and creates vibrations in the universe that overtime reaches out and affects everyone.
Earth shivered at every drop of blood shed unjustly,
Sky cried over barbaric killings of one human by another,
Animals quivered with another genocide of history.
Humanity was mutilated for no reason at all.
Relationships are like rainbow in the sky,
Unique, colorful each with it’s own place,
Offers peace, harmony in it’s own time,
Cherish them always, everyday, everywhere,
As without one, life will certainly go out of line.
Eid….. a blessed day,
Laughter and smile on each face,
Boys, girls, men, women and all,
Dressed up with sparkling eyes,
Celebrating eid with hopeful hearts,
Yet not forget those who are in need,
Remember them always in your heart,
Help them as much as you can,
As this is what eid is all about.
Life is like a long, stretched out road,
Bumpy at times yet smooth otherwise,
No one can predict what is around the corner,
Nor they can tell when the road ends.
The direction is one but journeys many,
Each has its own sail to carry.
Keep moving, progressing forward,
With eyes on the horizon and hope in heart,
The quest is adventurous yet peaceful at times,
Rest assure that destination will soon arrive.
In memory of all the victims of terrorist attacks around the world.
Beautiful faces, innocent hearts,
Eyes full of hopes and dreams,
Precious lives destroyed unjustly,
with cruel intentions and actions,
Blood spilled mercilessly,
and fear instilled for wrong reasons,
The whole universe cried,
at each soul that departed with unfulfilled wishes,
being the victims of hate,
Which is an ultimate crime,
That nature never allowed and created.
Sitting on my prayer mat
With my head bowed down.
Eyes closed and hands in a fold.
I connected with my creator
And pour myself out.
Attaining internal bliss with peaceful heart.
Knowing that I have been heard,
And now he will take care of the rest.
