Life Is a Battlefield

The word "LIFE" seems to be very attractive to me today. Either life is just borrowed from ABOVE or life is a journey...i have no doubt about these statements. Just to add another variation of the meaning of life, i believe life itself is also a battlefield.

Would you agree if I say...Whether we want it or not, we have no choice but to face life's daily battles - both within and without. All right, I guess most of you would be in tune with me here but how if I say...Unlike the ordinary battlefield, this one is not a place to find out who's the strongest against another fellow human beings, rather a place to test how much we care for one another?

How sad it is to see that many of us today think the other way around! It just not natural for us to love others more than ourselves or at least as we love ourselves. Love is easy when the other person is lovable but not an enemy! Love is easy when the other person is profitable and desirable to the visible eyes but not a disabled one!

Sometimes I wonder why most people care more for the outside rather than the inside. Many people forget that life is an opportunity to show kindness, not selfishness. That's why I call life as a battlefield because it's a battle in a sense that we are to war with our own selfishness in order to think and care more of others and less of ourselves.

Mimie, Saya sedang berfikir apa jenis Pedang dan Perisai yang perlu digunakan. Hehehe... Benar belaka apa yang Mimie tuliskan itu.

Ada satu buku yang sangat menarik tentang Life. Penulis itu bilang " Life is a Test", " Life is a Trust" n " Life is a Temporary Assignment"
