23 Ramadan 2013: In the midst of

There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even one small candle. – Robert Alden


Chaos, disorder, confusion … whether temporary or permanent, whether as time or place, can be tough to accept and more tough to react to. Most, including ourselves, would usually attribute such times or places to negativity leading us to think and emerse ourselves in a harsh cycle of pessimism.

Yet … there are others out there who amongst such times and places find positivity and more importantly … do good or seek what is already good and make it better giving themselves and others much hope.

Today’s post was inspired by a regular man who we do not know but whose story has come through. This man, has risen to surpass all human expectations, as in the middle of extreme poverty, hunger, sickness and homelessness of his people who have been forced to flee their homes, works day and night to serve others for humanitarian reasons feeding, carrying, aiding the hungry, sick and poor reminding us of many stories of people of such goodness who have also risen up to help people in the midst of even greater disasters.

This story inspired us to seek help from god in these blessed nights to start recognising goodness and deciding to make the good better instead of wallowing in unnecessary negativity losing opportunities to make time count.
