Its the fault of the homeless, the poor, the women, the children, and the weak !

There has been a lot of negative emotions in the air lately with sad news of deaths of loved ones, and more news of people facing challenges in Ramadan (those near to us as well as in distant lands). We get news about killings of women and children in war zones and occupied territories, the poor and homeless being rejected and accused of laziness, and Samaritans who are threatened with persecution if caught giving help to others. My family and I too have been receiving our fair share of some sad news and challenges. How do I keep looking up when gloom appears to be everywhere ?
1. Be grateful. With whatever we have, always believe its more than enough. I believe there are people who love me even when sometimes I do feel lonely. I believe that something better will always come even when I lose something. And being grateful never disappoints.
2. Forgive everything and everyone. I do have my share of anger and frustration with leadership. How some people lead countries and the world and create anger, delusion and chaos rather than LOVE and PURPOSE. Often too, we see things from our perspectives and get upset with those who deal differently from our way of thinking. It is hard but I do make an effort to forgive and pray for them.
3. GIVE. Keep on giving and looking for various ways to give. I learned that giving charity and doing work where the intention of GIVING is set, I am at peace and my relationships and finances actually improve.
4, Be solutions focused. With all these problems happening in the world, let us reflect the root cause. What CAN I DO so that these problems will not happen in the future.

These questions and actions lead to your purpose. Some of you have asked me via FB, whatsapp and phone calls about my perspective on the feeding of the homeless and the poor and what I think about the ban and fine imposed, I stick to what is TRUTH and focus on my intention on the GIVING. This message in the Quran is my reminder as it has been prophesied that what is good will be stopped and what is bad will be allowed in the end of times. We have already expected this but we need to know which side we must remain. “Have you seen him who denies the Recompense? That is he who repulses the orphan (harshly) , and urges not on the feeding of al-Miskeen the poor” (Al-Quran 107:1-3)

Your child is slow…

You may not be aware that one of the reasons why I am so passionate about spreading and educating the values of LOVE & RESPECT, is because for a long time in my life, I did not feel LOVE & RESPECT. Many incidents in my life but I will share one for now. Today, one incident happened that triggered a memory from my past of a person in authority, a teacher. When I was 8 years old. I could not grasp Maths, didn’t understand anything about it and I was labelled lazy, slow and stupid by the teacher in front of my class. I believed I was that until my late mother realized something was not right and took responsibility. She started to teach me Maths herself and got my confidence back up through empowerment. By that time I was about 10 and she was going through cancer treatments. I went on to do Maths as a minor in University. I revisited my Primary school when in the University to educate the kids on environmental issues at the time and met the teacher who labelled me slow and stupid. She was shocked that I have a Minor degree in Math, 
Today, unfortunately, one of my daughter’s teachers came over to me and called her “slow” and said I should get her tested. That memory and the same emotion I felt surfaced, and I gave the teacher a short brief on the power of words and the dangers of her “name calling”. I will be addressing this to the school tomorrow so please send prayers that our teachers, educators, lecturers, parents, leaders, politicians, learn and have awareness on the importance of LOVE & RESPECT. Ignorance and egotistical values has caused so much hurt and chaos in our society and the world. Spreading knowledge without LOVE & RESPECT only creates more materialistic, valueless, and unhappy people in the world. Its time for positive changes to happen. ENOUGH with the old system of education. TEACHERS, SPREAD LOVE AND RESPECT!

You are not worth looking at

After a series of non-stop work, training, learning and giving efforts, (and still my diary shows there are a lot more in store!), I just woke up from a long nap due to exhaustion. Sorry if I missed your calls and have delayed replying messages. Thank you to all the congratulatory messages of my 10 year business anniversary this April month for the M & Z Empowerment training business. Time flies! I am reading through some messages in my inbox and I had some people asking why I have been posting only pictures lately and asking for my usual sharing of motivation and reflections. 

OK, I will share first on last Sunday’s streetfeeding experience. While we had our volunteers split up to distribute foods to various locations, Zeal Zainuddin and I took charge of taking care of the rest of the remaining foodstuff. We had some of the homeless people come over to pick up the foods. One lady came over when no one else was around and spent some time to talk and share her life story and opened her heart out to both of us. After reflecting on the incident, Zeal and I discussed about how people generally just want to be LOVED & RESPECTED. By the simple act of us regularly visiting, making eye contact and acknowledging the people who otherwise in their lives often feel unloved, we get connected. They have a sense of hope and worth. There are no walls built regarding status, or worldly titles that often place one person’s life higher than another. Unfortunately, I see this even in families where due to some level of “success”, one person is deemed more worthy than others. Guests with a certain “status” are given better treatment than others. Clients with more money are given more respect. Let us all reflect on this a little deeper. Why does this belief happen? What led to these beliefs that cause people to step on the weak? Do these beliefs serve a higher purpose? What can we do to change these?…Sleep well everyone. Spread LOVE & RESPECT.

HEY YOU! DO YOU UNDERSTAND ?!

I was at the airport and was deeply disturbed by the way a group of foreign workers were treated at the airport. Looking at the men and women waiting in line to leave the country, I can see that they have had a rough life. God knows what they have gone through to leave their homes and find work overseas. It was 5am in the morning. Everyone looked tired but they had to face harsh words, talked to in a condescending manner by the officers and threatened loudly in front of others. I often share pictures of some people living luxuriously yet the people around them are living in poverty. It does not help that not only are they poor, the people capable of helping sometimes ignore and worse, make life more difficult for them. There is so much HATE. I reflect a lot on what I see. I see these imbalances in society. I see them in organisations. I see them in families. I see hurt people walking around hurting others intentionally. Sometimes publicly. Sometimes privately. Its time to stop this once and for all. I am working with a few organisations to start raising the level of awareness and LOVE & RESPECT in our society. If you would like to be a part of my team and to spread the message of LOVE & RESPECT, do PM me. START NOW! SPREAD LOVE & RESPECT!

Its ALL HIS FAULT!

Interesting that when a person blames something or someone, it is really a projection of the exact same trait that he or she possesses or is self conscious about. A person who feels worthless will constantly make fun of others. A domineering person will criticise another for being controlling. A person who suppresses his tears will make fun of others who cries or shows emotion. A person who feels guilt and shame will start accusing another for attacking or hurting them based on the very reason that he/she has unconsciously been suppressing. Be aware of the thoughts of blame, or anger or judgement of others. They are a reflection of your own anger of what is within you. Acknowledging, learning and accepting these prejudices and anger you have towards others is a step towards healing these issues that lie within yourself. As you acknowledge and work on them, you will feel more at peace and find yourself understanding people better. Spread LOVE & RESPECT ! Start with yourself !Image

Jealous much ?

Seriously, there is no need for jealousy or envy towards others. Everyone has their own paths to lead. Be genuinely happy for others when they succeed. You will feel grateful and joyful, and in fact will attract more success into your life. There is no reason to put down another person or get upset when a person does well. In doing so, you have in fact shown your insecurities and raise old pains. Reflect on why you hurt so much when you see another person happy and start working on yourself. It is a sign of the lack of self worth and it shows that you really need to heal some wounds. Inhale deep gratitude. Release those demons. Spread LOVE & RESPECT. You will soon feel more LOVE & RESPECT.Image

HOW YOU DO ANYTHING IS HOW YOU DO EVERYTHING !

A couple of days ago I mentioned on my update on “HOW YOU DO ANYTHING IS HOW YOU DO EVERYTHING”. Be aware of how you conduct yourselves in all aspects of your life. The belief system of a person comes across through the words, actions and values at work and in their lives. A person who can lie to a client, can lie to you or a loved one. A person who gossips to you can gossip about you. A person who promises you that he/she will do something and never does, is someone who will constantly give excuses or lay blame. A judgmental person, will also judge you. A person who is never happy at others’ success, will find fault in everything that is positive and will steal dreams under the pretext of being “realistic”. Honesty, integrity, love, respect, commitment must be in all areas of lives – work and personal. HOW YOU ARE AT ANYTHING IS HOW YOU ARE AT EVERYTHING. May Allah guide me to constantly be aware of myself, my weaknesses and blindspots, and give me the strength to keep doing better and BEING a better person everyday so as to be able to keep spreading this message of LOVE & RESPECT. I pray the same for you.Image

HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Reflecting on incidents, experiences, encounters that happened in 2013, I realise that there are so many lessons in all the good, bad, positives and negatives. I mentioned before that I choose to spread LOVE & RESPECT because I know how it feels to be UNLOVED and DISRESPECTED. This year, I realized an unresolved deep rooted hate and anger that still has been residing within me after all these years. Through recognizing my perceptions and emotions, I have chosen to surface that negative belief, acknowledge it and release it. This year, moving forward, the work of LOVE & RESPECT continues and it will grow bigger and spread out wider. I look forward to working with more LOVE & RESPECT advocates and reaching out to the unloved. I will go on to make positive changes and transformation…advocating the message of LOVE & RESPECT. DOING MORE & SPREADING MORE. This time, I will take more along with me in this amazing journey. I invite you along with me and my work.  Have an awesome 2014. SPREAD LOVE & RESPECT!

2014 1ill be better

Reach out to the unLOVED and Hurting…

One of the messages I took away today is from one of the speakers who mentioned that we often complain about the problems of the youths, the parents, the media, the celebs as bad role models, the education system, the financial system, the abandoned babies, the drug addicts, the problem of the poor, the rich, the leaders, the followers, etc…but we do not reach out to these people and do something about it positively…In my work, I meet a lot of hurting people. Hurt people will hurt others including themselves. Why are we allowing this to prolong in our world ? When we just complain, ostracise them, point fingers, we prolong that hurt in our world. Let us heal ourselves daily with LOVE & GRATITUDE, release the hurt and anger daily, input POSITIVITY in our hearts and minds, and forgive. Then reach out and do something for others and help them heal. One step at a time. Everyone doing something good for others daily. We get to SPREAD LOVE & RESPECT!street feeding 16

Who made you the judge ?

When we judge others, we are seeing things only from our own perspectives based on our own life experiences. If you find yourself criticising others for their lifestyles, behaviors, dressing, etc, it means you have to go over, extend your friendship and get to know them. When we judge, we create more walls instead of building bridges. If you want peace, BE peace. Spread LOVE & RESPECT!
