. . . To A Better Tomorrow

. . . To A Better Tomorrow

This episode happened a few days ago. A beautiful winter day with clear blue sky that just urged me to be out & about in the City of Kalamunda despite my left leg & lower back hurting greatly from sciatic pain. 

But for my ache & pain, I would have wandered more. However, I found that I had over an hour to wait for the next bus. At the bus terminal, there was a sweet young school girl called Maddy w Lfvihom I approached for help over the bus schedule. What happened next was an unbelievably miracle when she called her mother for help. Her mother came from home & soon happily we were homeward bound including Maddy’s boyfriend.

Oftentimes, it’s the little good things that you perform that would mean heaven on earth to the person you help.

Anna. to you I sing . . . “You are my special angel sent from high above” to bless & guide me onto the road “to a better tomorrow”. She’s always cheerful & smiling . . . ever-ready to respond to calls for help.

It’s the little things that matter in life. Minor things will lead you on to greater things. To quote President John F. Kennedy: “Ask not what the country can do for you but what you can do for the country.” Unfortunately, he was assassinated & so very young. The plot was so carefully planned & executed & so well covered up that until today you may never know why they did it.

America, so claimed & named by the Chinese as a “beautiful country” is full of killings, wars & assassinations. The greatest US President Abraham Lincoln was another President who was assassinated. Would it be because he brought on the Emancipation & the Freedom of slaves?

Why can’t men live in peace & harmony? Why can’t we all benefit mutually on a “win-win” basis the China is promoting. I think only fools like to complicate things in order to justify for their lack of ability. Again, it’s such a rotten world we live in where greed prevails & generosity & kindness of heart are so rare.

Thomas Aquinas (1225 – 1274) was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, Catholic priest, and Doctor of the Church. An immensely influential philosopher, theologian, and jurist in the tradition of scholasticism, he   also known within the latter as the Doctor Angelicus, the Doctor Communis, and the Doctor Universalis. (Wikipedia). 

He had this wonderful mindset: “ I shall pass this way but once. Therefore any good I can do, let me do it now. Let not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again”.

Let this be your awakening. Make things happen rather than for things to happen. Your contribution in any small way will go a long way. As Confucius says: “The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step”. Don’t just be a spectator or sit on the fence watching the world goes by.
